Tonight in our Jamie’s Food Revolution Cook-Along we made:
This is one of our favorites so far. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the asparagus was really nice with the dressing. I did not have cream crackers so I used stale sour dough bread which was not stale enough apparently. The mixture was a bit too sticky so it ended up very thick on the chicken. And I got a bit carried away with the parsley, so as you can tell in the picture, the result was rather green chicken. It was still really good. I do find that I have to cook things longer than Jamie suggests and I don’t know if that is because I am using different pans or if his times are just off. I cook with cast iron skillets which I love! They heat so evenly and I don’t worry about the non-stick surface coming off into our food with who knows what in it. I did “bash” the breasts first with a mallet to make them thinner so they would cook faster, but I still had to cook them about 10 minutes a side rather than the 4-5 Jamie suggests. I think I may try baking them next time. You can also find the Crunchy Garlic Chicken on Jamie Oliver’s web site as one of our readers pointed out to me. Thanks!
I love asparagus and can eat it with nothing on it, but we thought the dressing was a nice addition. What are your thoughts?
