This week I decided to try a recipe for an actual meal! I usually prefer to bake, since the ingredients in baking are all generally the same, and most of the time you don't have to deal with gross ingredients (like raw chicken!). This is one of my absolute favorite meals. My mom made it for me growing up, and about a year and a half ago I asked her for a recipe... The recipe she gave me was all over the place, giving me instructions out of order, and she didn't give me any exact amounts for the ingredients... so when I made it this time I just added ingredients until I thought the amount was appropriate.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Panko bread crumbs
White rice (I used instant cause I cheat)
Boneless skinless chicken breasts
First do the gross stuff: cut each breast in half and cut off the icky bits from the chicken, then rinse them and set them on paper towels to dry
Next, combine flour, paprika, salt, and pepper
Combine eggs, paprika, salt and pepper
And combine panko, paprika, salt and pepper
Coat the chicken breast in the flour mixture
Then dip into the egg mixture
And then coat in the panko mixture
Next put the coated chicken breast into a baking dish
Repeat this process with the remaining chicken
Next add chicken broth
And white wine to the baking dish, until there's about 1/4 inch of liquid in the pan
Next place slices of butter on top of the chicken, and top it off with the parmesan
Cover with aluminum foil, place in the oven, and bake for ~50 minutes. Then I took off the aluminum foil and turned up the heat to about 475 and baked for an extra 10 minutes to toast the top
For the rice, follow the normal rice instructions, but instead of using water use chicken broth, and add lemon juice, butter, and turmeric. In this case I added about a tablespoon of turmeric, which was a bit too much.
The finished product.
This turned out pretty good, except I added a bit too much chicken broth to the pan, so the chicken was extra moist, which isn't exactly a problem... and the addition of too much turmeric, which made the rice a little intense, but still good. This is also awesome as leftovers.
