Just-Like-Thanksgiving-Chicken (Oamc Dump)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

Every time I make this, my husband swears it smells and tastes like Thanksgiving dinner. I suppose it could be made with Turkey cutletts to be even closer, but I've always used chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  2. Place the chicken breasts (still frozen) on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Layer the apples, sweet potatoes, and onion on top.
  4. Sprinkle on the nuts and craisins.
  5. Place one pat of butter on each breast.
  6. Mix the maple syrup and poultry seasoning together and drizzle on top.
  8. Put everything except the maple syrup, poultry seasoning, and butter into a ziplock bag.
  9. Melt the butter and combine with poultry seasoning and maple syrup.
  10. Put these in a little bowl and freeze separately (in the bag).
  11. When ready to cook, dump the bag out and then pour the (thawed) syrup butter mix on top.
  12. To cook: Thaw. Cook covered in a 350 oven for 30-45 minutes. I confess I normally skip the thaw step and put it in the oven.

This was really good. I made one to bake right away, and one to freeze for later. The only thing I would change is to spread a little of the syrup/seasoning mixture onto the chicken breasts before layering the other ingredients. The chicken was bland, but I think this would help. I made a green bean casserole to go with this, and everything really did taste and smell like thanksgiving! Thanks for a tasty and easy recipe.

I forgot to add the berries and nuts (scatterbrained) but it still tasted great. I really liked the sweet potato / apple / onion mixture. I cooked it without freezing, and it took a full 45 minutes, so I imagine it would take longer from frozen.
