boring chicken breasts...what to do
need a new idea for boneless skinless chicken breasts. i'm thinking some warm and hearty, maybe spicy. i have sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts for sides...
This is my favorite stand-by recipe for chicken.
Garlic and Mustard Encrusted Chicken
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: Up to an hour
1 lb chicken (in whatever shape pieces you prefer)
1⁄2 cup dijon mustard
1⁄2 cup olive oil
1⁄2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
4 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350.
Put mustard, vinegar, oil, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and mix thoroughly. Roll chicken in this mixture, giving each piece a thick, even coating. Lightly roll in breadcrumbs.
Bake up to an hour, until the chicken is cooked.
This chicken is equally good cold the next day.
(If you want it spicy, just go ahead and use a spicy mustard and maybe amp up pepper and garlic, this recipe adjusts very easily).
Go to the hispanic section of your local market and pick up any of the rogelio bueno or dona marie mole sauces. ( I rec. RB mole, and DM mole verde). Poach the chicken breasts cool and shred, reserve broth and use following the directions on sauce container. serve with chopped white onion, beans, corn tortillas or rice.
this is a simple winner, try it out.
