Todd Wilbur created this version for the Dr. Oz show. He said "We can attribute a lot of that famous flavor of KFC chicken to MSG. Dr OZ challenged me to replace the MSG without losing the flavor we have come to love. You may be shocked at what I came up with - but you will not be disappointed" Prep time does not include brining time.

When I tried this dish at Buca, I instantly fell in love with it. I was able to find the recipe elsewhere, and thought I should share it! It is fabulous! (I usually leave the peel on the eggplant, and chop it into one-inch cubes; but this can also be prepared with eggplant slices) If you don't have time to make Marinara, you can just a jarred sauce like Paul Newman's.
This recipe was found on CDKitchen.com. It looked like many of the other recipes across the web so I thought I would give it a try. I have uploaded here for tracking reasons and will update after I make it this week.
Luby's is a chain cafeteria in Texas and is a favorite of my sister-in-law in San Antonio. She knows I collect cookbooks so she sent me one Luby's put out in 1996. This dish is easy and very pleasing to the eye. Make sure the chicken pieces are not too thick as the coating would cook faster than the inside. I serve this with packaged Pasta Roni, steamed asparagus and garlic bread. This is as printed in the book for 8; I guessed on the ingredients for cutting down for 2.
When I saw the insert in my Sunday paper, just knew that I had to try and replicate a fantastic picture of Tuscan Chicken. After tweaking it a bit, came up with a very satisfying dish. Think you will like it.
This is a wonderful dish! I haven't had the good fortune to have tried the original recipe at Cracker Barrel, but it it's anything like this, it's a winner for sure! Creamy chicken filling with a wonderful cornmeal crust that turns a golden color! It's a keeper for sure!
I haven't tried this yet, but these are supposed to be the same as the Cracker Barrel meal which I LOVE. It's just chicken and dumplings and creamy white gravy at the end. I got this off of the Post-Gazette website. They noted that they found that they needed about 3/4 cup more flour than the recipe called for. They added 1/4 cup of flour at a time to get the dough to rolling consistency and added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

I tried this for the first time tonight at Buca, and went on a search for the recipe. It is spectacular. I found this on another website, and am posting to compare to the original sometime soon.
