My friends served this chicken on New Year’s Eve and Mr. Meat Eater and I LOVED it. She told me how she made it so I went searching for a recipe, because as my family knows, I can’t function in the kitchen without a piece of paper or a book in front of me. Anyway, I found one that is very similar if not the original recipe so I gave it a shot. It’s really very good BUT it’s not as good as my friend’s version ~ maybe because I didn’t have to cook it? I’ll keep tweaking it and see how it goes but it’s a great recipe all by itself and really doesn’t need tweaking but tweaking is what I do best. Yes, this is the chicken in that French’s commercial on TV.
I marinated my chicken in olive oil and vinegar salad dressing for a bit before making this dish so I left off the egg.
