Since our plans got bumped back a bit, I postponed the last two Sundays but am back on track 🙂 I have only two recipes left after this one! Crazy to think of it that way! I’m SO HAPPY he is almost home!
This week was PW’s Ranch Style Chicken. SUCCESS! I have finally found the recipe that Wyatt gave 5 stars for!! First I have to mention this recipe doesnt actually have anything ranch-flavored in it – but it is WONDERFUL and takes a little prep time but COMPLETELY WORTH IT!!
Here is everything you’ll need:
honey, dijon mustard, red pepper flakes, paprika, salt and pepper, and fresh lemon juice. Oops and a package of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. which i forgot. and had to go to the store for while this was marinading.
whisk 1/2 cup of honey and mustard together. add juice of 1/2 lemon. (i will say i cut this back – recipe calls for 6 chicken breasts, then cut them in half. I bought four – already cut in half pieces since it was just Wyatt and me – so i divided everything in half)
after everything is combined – then add paprika, salt, pepper (1/2 teaspoon of each) and red pepper flakes (to taste – a little goes a LONG way i think 🙂 )
after its all mixed – add chicken, cover and let marinate for 2 – 4 hours ( i did for four hours) let me tell you – this is SOOOO delicious and worth it!)
while its marinading- cook 1/2 pound of bacon, slices cut in half. drain. set aside.
after chicken has had time to soak up all the marinade-y goodness – i put it on my foreman grill for 5 minutes. then placed cooked chicken on a foll-covered baking sheet. top the chicken with four half-strips of bacon each (or less if you want). Cover with shredded sharp cheddar cheese. place under broiler in the about 5 minutes – or until cheese is melted.
the flavor of the marinade with this tender chicken was OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious!! I served it with mashed potatoes. Wyatt had his plate cleaned about 3 minutes later. This is how I judge my success!
You wont be sorry you made this! Enjoy! 🙂
