I wanted to make a decent dinner but I was low on ingredients. I took a quick look around the kitchen, came back and plugged in some ingredients, and up this popped. To be honest, I didn't have mushrooms and I didn't have white wine. I went ahead and just doubled the onions and used red wine instead(I know). When everything was mixed together before baking I was a little worried that my "batter" mixture was like dipping the chicken in oatmeal. However, I shrugged off the texture and gave it a go. I was actually pleasantly surprised. It bakes up like a casserole and is excellent over rice. The chicken came out moist and the sauce was more like a tangy stuffing with all the crushed cracker.
One addition made a big difference. Before I put the "casserole" in the oven I crushed half another packet of crackers over the top. At first I thought I made a mistake because these seemed to burn, but in the end it actually added a good crunch.
I agree with those who said that this is basically a crustless chicken quiche. The spice blend is delicious. Will make again, but in a crust and with the chicken chopped up.
I made some changes. I can't have spices so I left off the cajun season and ground cayenne pepper. I didn't have any mushrooms so they were left off too. But the chicken came out DELICIOUS.
I agree about cutting down on the butter and I would maybe add more cracker crumbs to make it a little crispier. The sauce that it makes is wonderful. My daughter who eats like a bird, had two helpings. I served it with rice.
I fixed Eric's baked chicken last night and my family told me it was the "best" chicken dish they've ever had and that I could fix it again anytime! And to top it off, it was EASY!!
Tasty, but I would probably cut the butter next time. Left out the mushrooms. Used minced garlic instead of powder, cooking lightly with the onions first. Easy enough and good flavor.
I don't know who Eric is but Thanks this is a great recipe and will become one of our weekly meals. I replaced some of the butter with olive oil and one of those heart healthy spreads and fat free ranch dressing and it was super. I take this to pot lucks and ect. Thanks again
I guess I must have cooked this too long....it was like eating a piece of not very flavourful chicken surrounded by some quiche. I had no sauce left, just crust. I may try this again and reduce the eggs to one.
Aside from forgetting to halve the breasts, this turned out very well! My boyfriend and I cleared our plates, and didn't feel overly stuffed. I will say though, I was concerned about the actual amount of Ranch dressing I consumed, and next time will use a substitute (fat-free, homemade?). Based on previous comments, I reduced to one egg which worked perfectly, and I did sprinkle some crumbs on top for that added crunch.
NOTE: You do not need a side dish for this meal! We almost made rice, but were SO glad we didn't. Maybe a salad? But nothing that takes up space ;)
