I can feel the seams of my shorts straining...hear that? Can you hear that? It's the threads...they're going to let go any...
This is a FABULOUS recipe, however, like the other reviewers, triple up on the spices. The chicken is VERY tender and has a nice crunch to it because of the panko bread crumbs and pecans. After frying in olive oil, I baked them in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. (just to make sure the chicken was cooked thoroughly!)
I made this and it came out good but it lacked something in the final outcome. I think that it could of used some garlic. But I still got rave reviews for it.
Loved the flavor--cooked it in the oven instead of in a pan, using 1 tbsp oil in pan, one in "liguid dip" and one spritzed over the top after they were rolled in the crust. Due to lack of ingredients I used lime juice instead of lemon, omitted salt, and used a whole egg rather than two whites. Very good! It baked at 350 about 23 minutes to perfection.
This is the BEST chicken my hubby and I have EVER tasted. It was crunchy and tender all at the same time, the flavor was amazing, and it was fantastic on a salad the next day with Sharlene~W's Honey Mustard Dressing. Can't wait to make it again!!! thanks!
We served the chicken with your honey mustard dressing over salad greens. The only change was that I omitted the lemon zest, since my kids don't like lemon flavor (I did use the fresh juice in the marinade). The air drying did help set the chicken. I didn't have any problems with the crust adhering. The funny thing was that both kids thought we were having pizza from the cooking aroma (I guess the thyme)! Everyone enjoyed the dressing on top, too. I'll make this again! Note: I noticed when I sampled again (doing clean up) that The pecans were more noticeable after the chicken had cooled to room temp. I preferred it that way. I think that means leftovers are really going to be great! Roxygirl Roxygirl
DH & I didn't find this recipe to our liking. For the time involved in making the bread crumb mixture, I felt end result was flavorless. I'm not rating as what I may find mediocre will be someone else's gourmet delight. I may try again someday and play around with spices.
