Party Chicken

Publix (our lovely grocery store chain here in Florida) always has a feature in their sales ad called "Feed Four" (from their Apron's Simple Meals plan) and sometimes it is compared to dinner out and other times it's just a meal they put together for x amount of dollars.

This week's feature is called Party Chicken.  With a name like that, heck, who wouldn't want to give it a try (it's a P.A.R.T.Y. Chicken folks!!)

Now, they say that you can feed the four for UNDER $16.20* (when you buy products included in the ingredient list* below (excluding pantry items). Hmmm...I'm quite CERTAIN that I can do it for a heck of a lot less being stockpiled and shopping other times AND not using the name brands they call for ... so here we have MY version:

1 1/2 lbs of b/s chicken breast
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (sharp)
Cooking spray
3 tbs unsalted butter
1/4 cup flour
large ziploc bag
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup mayo
aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 425. Coat a 2 quart baking dish with spray. Cut butter into small pieces and place in medium bowl to soften.
Place flour in ziploc. Season chicken with pepper, toss in bag and shake to coat. Remove chicken from bag (there is NO party going on yet!). Shake off excess flour and place chicken in dish.
Combine the soup and mayo, spread evenly over the chicken. Stir panko and cheese into soften butter, mixing til crumbly. Top chicken with the cheese mixture and cover dish with foil. Bake 10 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 10 to 15 minutes til chicken is golden brown and 165 degrees inside.

They recommend serving with a broccoli salad:
12 oz broccoli florets
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 tbs bacon bits
8 oz poppy seed dressing (1 cup)
Cut broccoli into bite size pieces and place in medium size bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat. Chill til ready to serve.

So, it does sort of look, ho hum. I would most likely serve with rice and totally bypass the broccoli since I do NOT like broccoli. I try folks, really, I do...
