Chip Moody was a beloved News Anchor in Dallas/Ft. Worth and in Houston. He was also a very good friend and neighbor of my best friend's father. When my best friend and I were just venturing out on our own we cooked an elaborate dinner for her father and some guests. This was one of my mother's recipe's that we made for Chip Moody, he absolutely loved it. He has since passed away but I will never forget the pride we felt when he went on and on about the fabulous chicken and asked for the recipe. It is a great company worthy dish.
This has to be one of the most amazing chicken dishes I have ever made or eaten. It's really scary to watch people just attack this dish and practically inhale it in one breath. Brush up on your Heimlich Maneuver, people do get a little over-enthusiastic over this. Prep time includes marinating time.
This is a recipe that I developed from a mixture of recipes, adapting to our tastes. I hope you enjoy it :) Time to make doesn't include time to marinate. Cooking time is an estimate, depending on how hot your grill is and how big your chicken cubes are. :)
I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten. Editor's Note: Named Bourbon Chicken because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.
This will also work great with turkey; if you do not have chicken breasts, then use any leftover cooked chicken. If desired you can fill the crescents just with the filling mixture and omit the soup, just brush with butter before baking. They are wonderful just stuffed with the filling! A few members have experienced a soggy bottom, so you might want to consider just drizzling half (or even a little less) of the soup mixture on top and a little around the sides of the crescents, then save the rest of the soup mixture for another time (this will help prevent a soggy bottom). You may use the jumbo crescent rolls and stuff with more chicken mixture :)
This chicken is very moist. I usually use Club crackers for this and love the buttery flavor in the coating. Leftovers (if there are any) reheat well on a baking stone in the oven. I sometimes make another version of the gravy and don't always use the soup. But, the flavor of this compliments the chicken well and is very easy to prepare. The complete meal is served with mashed potatoes, biscuits, corn and a tossed salad....dessert is usually pie!
This is for serious garlic lovers. The chicken bakes out so moist and tender! Grated cheese may be sprinkled on top of the breast the last 5 minutes of cooking if desired but that is optional. Double all ingredients for more than four breasts and adjust the amount of garlic to suit taste. For the coating amount you might be able to get away with 5 or maybe 6 very small chicken breasts, but I would suggest to increase the amount slightly --- to take this dish to yet another level, about 10 minutes before the cooking time is finished, drizzle the top of the chicken with a little pasta sauce, then sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Return to oven for about 10 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked and sauce is hot and cheese has melted. For a lemon-garlic flavor add in 3 tablespoons lemon juice to the melted butter/garlic mixture --- *NOTE* for a healthier alternative Smart Balance Butter Blend may be used in place of the melted butter --- you will love this chicken!

Hi, just threw this together this morning with what I had on hand. Turned out so very good and cheesy! You can adjust everything to taste if you wish. This is very mild for a Mexican dish. I hope that you enjoy this as much as I did! Thanks so much!
This recipe comes from the restaurant "Brennan's" located in New Orleans. No one has to know how simple and quick it is. I posted this recipe exactly as it was in the book, however, if you like a little "heat" please feel free to add some cayenne pepper to taste.
this recipe is from the food section of the ottawa citizen newspaper, it is from a popular indian restaurant in ottawa, ontario. this is very high in cholesterol but we just have to have this at least twice a year. i love indian food and go to a lot of indian restaurants and i have never found a better butter chicken recipe anywhere.
Butter...Garlic...Cheese? Chicken rolled in all? How can this recipe not be a keeper?!! My sister-in-law gave me this recipe some 25 years ago. It's just as good today as it was then - maybe even better since my garlic tastes have increased over the years as well as my "eye-balling" measurements (meaning more garlic!). Just be sure not to overcook as the chicken will be dry - follow these directions and the chicken will be moist. This is a great prepare ahead meal that will impress.
This is really simple, but surprisingly good. The chicken is somewhat garlicky and tangy because of the lime juice, but it is not too strong-tasting. It goes great with mashed potatoes and corn muffins.
