This is my new favorite recipe!

Need:
Oatmeal or bread crumbs (use whichever you prefer)
Chicken breast (defrosted)
Mustard or salad dressing (use whichever you prefer, but remember to use low-fat or fat free dressing)
Greased pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees


(1) cut off any fat from chicken
(2) make sure the chicken is dry
(3) roll chicken in mustard or salad dressing, just enough to coat it
(4) roll chicken in bread crumbs or oatmeal

Bake in oven for 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes

The chicken stays tender because of the dressing/mustard and the crumbs/oatmeal makes it crispy!


Enjoy!

Does it have to be a creamy-style dressing? Or would Italian work just as well?

Italian would work, I think. It should be something that can "stick" onto the chicken.

Holy wow. I made this the other night (and I NEVER cook) and it was DELICIOUS. The only things I did differently were first, I stabbed the chicken with a fork like there was no tomorrow, and then I let the chicken marinate in the Creamy Italian dressing for like 1/2 an hour, and then after I rolled them in the breadcrumbs, I baked them on a cooling rack on the cookie sheet, and the entire thing, bottom included, was nice and crispy.

Believe me, it was awesome. Plus, it didn't matter that I forgot the chicken was marinating....just added flavor!

i'm so glad you liked it!! It's a favorite of mine :)

It's fun to use different flavors, change it up from time to time. Once I used "Spicy Ranch" . . it was delish!

I'm going to have to try this. Do you flip the chicken half way through baking? What's the greased pan for? Can I be ghetto and cook mine in a pie tin covered with aluminum foil?

What's the best types of dressing to use? I think I'm gonna try it with honey mustard. Oh, that sounds good right now.

My favorite version of this a few years ago was to roll the chicken pieces in dry Ranch dressing mix. Loved that flavor. I may have to try coating the chicken in bottled ranch dressing and then in bread crumbs, oatmeal, or crushed corn flakes.

I'd add some coarse black pepper and mixed herbs to the breadcumb mix.

Vindaloo recipe is tangy, sweet and hot curry with gravy. Vindaloo recipe is from Goan cuisine and also very popular in Maharastra state of India.
Author: Rachna's Kitchen
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Goan, Indian
Serves: 2 Servings
Ingredients (250 ml cup used)
1 pound (450 grams) boneless chicken thighs cut into cubes
cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
teaspoon turmeric powder
teaspoon salt
7 whole black peppercorns
1 bay leaf
2 cardamom pods
7 dried red finger chilies
7 whole cloves
2 fresh hot green chiles, roughly chopped
7 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (1/2 inch) piece of fresh ginger, roughly chopped
1 Tablespoon tamarind paste
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil or clarified butter
2 red onions, finely diced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Salt to taste
Instructions
Marinating
Marinate chicken by adding above six ingredients chicken cubes, rice vinegar, ground cumin, turmeric powder and salt in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes. If you are not in hurry, marinate for longer as it will add more taste.
Prepare vindaloo curry powder
Place a pan over medium flame. Add next 5 ingredients whole black peppercorns, bay leaf, cardamom pods, dried red finger chilies, whole cloves and dry roast them for about 1 minute.
Now put all the roasted ingredients in a grinder and grind to a fine powder.
Prepare spice paste
In a grinder or blender add garlic, green chilies, ginger, tamarind and cinnamon powder. Blend mixture to a smooth paste.
Cooking chicken
Place a pan over medium heat. Add two tablespoon of oil (I prefer ghee). Add the chopped onions. I like to use chopped onion instead of onion paste because sometime paste turns curry taste bitter.
Saute till onion caramalize or changes colour to golden brown.
Add spice paste prepared in step 3. Saute for 1 minute.
Add dry vindaloo curry powder prepared from step 2. Saute again for 20 seconds.
Add chicken cubes and saute.
Add salt to taste. Remember that we added salt previously while marinating so adjust salt quantity.
Add cup water and cover the lid. Let the chicken simmer on low heat until it's cooked. It will take 8 to 10 minutes.
Chicken vindaloo is ready to serve. You can serve it with naan ,chapati or plain basmati rice.
