Roasted Chicken With Cheesy, Creamy Sauce.

"You could hear the lunch bell ring from all the way over at the barn. Dong! Dong! Dong! "It's time for lunch!" Jerry shouted. He jumped down off the tractor and headed for the old pickup truck. "Whata we having?" yelled Bubba. Dennis smiled, "We having that lip smacking good chicken with that sauce!" Everyone piled into the back of the truck and made their way to the table, it was piled high with tasty chicken, sauce in a gravy ladle and some nice red tomatoes. Hurry up and pass that down here...Granddad boldly nodded. Feel free to add the sauce to potatoes or vegetables as suggested by Jen T who must be a genius! Thanks, Jen! But most of all *enjoy* and gather around the table and rest a spell."

  1. 10 Stars!!! This is the best chicken I have ever tasted! I've been calling it Bubba's chicken (from the story) and my family goes nuts when I say we are having "Bubba's". They have no idea how easy it is : - )... Thank you!!!
  2. This was just okay... the gravy was really cheesy, and I love cheese. Not sure I'd make this again...
  3. We really loved this one! Just the right amount of spice and crunchiness. I love that I had all the ingredients in the cupboard and fridge. My son asked me to make this one again soon!
  4. We really enjoyed this! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using chicken tenders instead of breast. Everyone thought it was really tasty, and it was a fairly easy weeknight dinner with simple, on-hand ingredients. Thank you for sharing!
  5. Delcious!!! Crispy and moist. The gravy is da bomb. I love how the tyme comes thru nicely and not-to-strong. I did use all the optionals listed in the ingredients for the chicken including the healthy dash of cayenne pepper. The gravy went nicely with my stuffing mix I chose as a side. Great comfort food for these cold Michigan nights!~ Made for TYM tag.


  1. At last a recipe that doesn't need an egg to bind breadcrumbs. Being a bit of a lazy cook I'm always looking for shortcuts. I used a bit of cayenne pepper in place of the paprika and pepper and after spreading the mayonnaise over I added some fresh crushed garlic to the chicken before rolling in cornflake crumbs. I also simplified the dipping sauce to equal parts mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce with a bit of thyme in it (I did say I was lazy!). Oh and my chicken fillets were very thick so I sliced them in half lengthways. My BF raved about the meal and the leftover pieces the next day were great on a sandwich. Thanks Andi!. Sorry to vary your wonderful recipe a bit but you gave me some great ideas to work with and that's what cooking is all about!.
