These are wonderful! My cousin brought them as an appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner one year, and I got the recipe. I make them for work parties, and even quick snacks at home. You can always make more or less by using more or less cream cheese and crescent rolls! Trust me, these are excellent!
This is a deceptive recipe: quick and easy to make with a simple ingredient list but which really delivers the flavor. What more could you want from chicken and potatoes? I find one large lemon yields just about 1/4 cup juice. This recipe makes 4 servings, but my husband and I eat this easily between the two of us.
Alton Brown is my FAVORITEST chef on the Food Network. He's funny and, like me, believes that everything in the kitchen should multi task. Most all of his recipes are easy and every-day stuff we can all enjoy. (Let's face it, some of those dishes from some of those cooks are a little too much trouble if you've got a hungry bunch or your market has limited selections.) This one, however, is simple and darn good.
The deli at our local market sells the most wonderful Cajun turkey meat. It has just enough spice for me. I have a high sensitivity to spicy/acidic food. It blisters my mouth, so I have to be careful. This recipe is the closest I've found to duplicate the recipe. You could always pare down the size of the bird you're cooking.
This chicken recipe is so easy, I hesitated in posting it. But I couldn't find it posted here, and it's so good, I thought I'd share it. It's my favorite way to bake chicken because it's moist and tender every time and the flavor is delicious!
