Baked Chicken Reuben

"This is a great make-ahead dish from Marcia Adams of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It took the top $10,000 prize in the National Chicken Cooking Contest in Dallas, Texas. It sounds weird, but it is good."

  1. I never would have thought about sauerkraut and chicken but this was great! I adore reubens so decided to try this. I wasn't feeling well this weekend and wanted to make an easy dish, I had all the ingredients on hand so this was perfect. The only thing I did different was to pound the chicken breast a bit to tenderize and I doubled the cheese as I love cheese! Thanks Miss Annie, we'll be having this again!
  2. This has become one of my weeknight standby favorites. I usually make a lower calorie version with fat free swiss cheese ,and fat free thousand island dressing. Which reduces the calorie content by about 1/3 to about 5 WW points per serving. ( I also usually make 1 or two servings "vegetarian" by substituting a veggie chicken patty or two.)
  3. I was just about to post this and searched to see if someone already had. I love sauerkraut and reubens. I found this recipe in my recipes the other day, and decided to try it. This was quick and easy and very good. I highly recommend it.
  4. I can't belive someone won a contest for this recipie, It's been in my grammas cookbook for years and years... what a coincidence! Either way, it is a great twist for chicken!
  5. Who would have imagined that kraut and chicken would make such a great combo! I first had this and my friend's house, then made it for myself. Just awesome.
