One thing that will help with the sauce is using full fat cheese, not 2% or reduced fat. I think the original recipe called for more cheese than is stated in the recipe as well. I've made the Racheal Ray 365 recipe many times, and it is always delicious! I tried it with the reduced fat cheese, and the sauce was not the same.
Absolutely loved the chicken but would have to agree with a previous review about the cheese sauce - it is grainy and doesn't add to the flavor. I won't make with the cheese sauce again. I think I may have pounded the chicken too thin because those babies were huge and almost fell apart upon dredging and frying. Next time I won't pound until nearly busting out of the bag. I ground my pretzels in the coffee grinder and that worked beautifully.
This chicken was so good on it's own it didn't even need the cheese sauce. The chicken came out moist with a crunchy coating. The sauce was good, but the chicken was definately the star of the show.
I just wanted to comment on the attribution of this recipe. It is copyrighted and printed in Rachael Ray's 365 Days of Recipes on page 267. It is not a Jessica Simpson recipe. I believe that the correct attribution should be noted per copyright laws. Just a heads up.
My husband made this after we seen it on Rachael Ray. We both thought it was delicious! Very fattening, but some things are worth it!
I hate to give a review like this one, the chicken was great, I do recommend making chicken this way it holds the juice in and the presentation is beautiful. The mustard sauce is almost like a tangy cheese sauce which our family did not like, and no matter how long I stirred it, it seemed likt the cheese would not incorporate, so it was grainy and soupy. This would still be good with a lot of other sauces though. Thanks.
