Chicken Run- Abby's Monday Eats

I'll just be crossing the road while you get that oven preheated.

Mom just has to share a recipe she came up with that was a HUGE hit in our house  Mom and Dad were both at her little crash pad in the city as she was on call this weekend.  It's small but has a nice little kitchen and as the phone was quiet, she went for a simple, quick dinner  Dad gave it a huge thumbs up and it was just as good reheated the next day.

Plus - It's SUPER easy.  Even those that don't "cook" can make it.
Poppyseed Chicken

Not to be confused with Poopyseeds which, according to My Fitness Pal, can be found in a:

This is MUCH better.

You will need:
A large cereal bowl of Panko bread crumbs (either Italian seasoned or plain and add 1 tsp of Italian seasoning or oregano or basil.
An egg
4-6 chicken thighs (or your favorite dismantled chicken parts)
a bottle of Poppyseed salad dressing (you won't need the whole bottle)

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg with a splash of water.
Dunk chicken pieces in egg
roll them in the bread crumbs until lightly coated.
Is it done yet?

Bake on a cookie sheet sprayed with non stick spray in a  preheated 400 F oven for 25 minutes.

Open oven when the 25 minutes is up and drizzle about a cup of the salad dressing over the top of the chicken pieces, just enough to lightly cover the meat without it spreading down onto the hot pan.

Bake another 20 minutes.  (For large pieces like breasts make it 25 minutes, for small drumsticks make it 16 minutes).

It's crunchy, but not TOO crunchy, with a wonderful sweet and sour flavor and the chicken inside is incredibly moist (I got a little bit of the meat with the coating removed, yummy!)

Lab Tested - Dad approved.

  7. Ooooh, Abby that sounds delish. My mum brags all the time that in the years we have lived here (since 2007) she has NEVER used her oven and only the top of the stove a few times. Mind you, her microwave has a convection oven which she uses so maybe I can get her to try it there.

    Thanks for the recipe
