I really enjoyed the crispy coating on the chicken but could have done without the sauce. It wasn't bad just not really needed to enjoy this chicken! The sage adds a nice flavor, but could be used on the chicken. Made for PAC fall 2012.
The coating on the chicken is really delicious and what makes this recipe 5 stars. On its own the sauce was ok, but goes well with the chicken, my DH really enjoyed it. I pounded the chicken a little so the pieces would be of one width and cook more evenly. I would probably reduce the oil/butter mix a little as some of the coating didn't get crunchy but was still oily/mushy in a couple of spots. Wanting more flavor I didn't add water to the sauce but used a Tbls more each of the wine and broth, I also stirred in some of the brown bits from the bottom of roasting pan. I was expecting the sauce to be thicker but the extra liquids took the medium white sauce to a thin sauce - which was still fine. I served this with jasmine rice cooked with the rest of the can of chicken broth. Made for PAC Spring 2012
I didn't use the white sauce, but made noodles with cream and chives. However, the chicken was savory enough on its' own without having to use a sauce to cover it. I think the coating would also work well with porkchops, so I'll have to try that some time.
Zoesmama, you are my new best friend. My local Super Suppers closed last year and I have been looking for this recipe ever since. This is probably my all-time favorite recipe. The only change I make is that I pan-cook the chicken until white on the outside, then arrange in a cassarole dish and pour the sauce over the top. Then I press several spoonfulls of crumbs onto the top of each piece of chicken and bake until done.
