skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (14.5 ounce) can
peeled, cored and diced pears
chopped green onion
I'm rating this a 5 for my family. My kids and Hubby raved about this dish!Sauce was fine, if you like a roux type sauce.But instead of just browning the chicken on sides, I also poured sauce over & baked through.
unbelevably bland; do this: double the salt and pepper on the chicken. add (to chicken) white cooking wine and hot sauce. to pear sauce, add small amount of white wine and hot sauce. boil pears in wine, hot sauce, chicken broth and honey for a few minutes, then mash pears (essentially make a rue). spoon over chicken in a casserole dish and bake for 15-20 minutes. yum.
I was really disappointed by this recipe. It sounds very good, but the sauce had a bizarre texture (like flubber? that's my best approximation) and no taste at all. In all, the dish was very bland and even though my roommates ate it, I did not eat the leftovers because I didn't want to waste the calories on it.
I'm sorry but this recipe did not have much flavor. Left remainder on stove and threw out in the morning. Chicken would probably be better baked, but don't know what to do with the sauce. It could go either way. More spices or add some cinammon, raisins & a tad of sugar for a sweet sauce.
Great idea! I did it quit a bit different and WOW! I used frozen chicken put in boiling water and added garlic while that was boiling on low, I cooked the bacon. After bacon was done I added 1 cup of organic chicken broth once that came to a boil I added a can of pears (water not syrup) mushed them up then added onion. I then added the flour water mix to thicken and tossed in a tbls of red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. I then placed the chicken and the sauce in the crockpot and let it cook for 5 hrs on low. Put it over baby red potatoes. Amazing flavor, tender meat and very filling.
The sauce was very bland. Not very good.
This chicken tasted great but was not real pretty looking. My kids liked it and that is what counts around here! I will make this again.
This recipe is pretty tasty but a little too labor intensive for our family. Also, we don't recommend serving it with white rice. The rice is too bland for this mild dish.
