Sun Chip Chicken

Rob and I have become Pampered Chef snobs.  We love most of the gadgets and the stoneware is our favorite baking tools.  You can see that and our Kitchen Aid prominently in many pictures and they will remain so for many, many years as our main baking accessories.   Pampered Chef, if you have not ever been to a show, is a home party thingie where you get to see a cooking demonstration and have friends over and eat and the hostess, ME, gets free kitchen stuff.  What could be better. 

There is not enough time to regale you with the wonderfulness of the stoneware.  It makes baking so much better and it makes baking this recipe so much easier.  I will also mention that this recipe is derived and adapted from one of their cookbooks. 

Who here likes chicken?  Ask Aarons girlfriend Corrie if we like chicken in this house.  The poor girl has chicken almost every time she comes over, literally almost every time.  Haha, poor kid.  Luckily it is pretty easy to cook and oh so easy to diversify!   This recipe was taken from a PC cookboolk and made even more simple.  This is one of Robs specialties to cook.   And it is so easy!

1 full size bag of flavored Sun Chips  (our favorite is French Onion but any will work)
3 lbs chicken boneless chicken breasts
2 eggs
1 ziploc bag

Thats all it takes for ingredients!  And it can take as little as  30-40 minutes to prepare if you want a quick dinner.

First cut up your chicken to desired size. You can make fingers but we have found that cubes work best.  I like them about 2-bite sized. 

Take your ziplock bag and crack the two eggs into it and beat them until slightly paler in color, 20-30 seconds and then add your chicken.  Close and knead the bag to disperse the egg into the chicken.   Let this set for atleast 10 minutes.  Rob and I personally like letting it sit for an hour or so, the egg sucks up into the chicken and makes it super juicy.    Next crush your chips up to a pretty fine crumb with some bigger chunks, there is no real wrong way to do this.  Haha  Pour your chicken into a bowl and pour your crushed chips over it and stir until combined.

Pour into your PC stoneware (the big bar pan) or a parchement lined cookie sheet if you dont have PC.  It will be a bit tight but dont worry it is good this way!!

Put in the oven for 18-22 minutes, depending on your chunk size and cook until done.  Serve with your favorite sides and if you want, some dipping sauces.  So good, so easy and actually quite economical.  

This whole pan of chicken was made with items on sale so this whole pan cost under $9!! And it is enough food for Rob and I, the two endless stomachs, NIk and Aaron, to have dinner  AND enough left for Rob and I have to lunch the next day!!   Cant beat that!! 

Happy Cooking!
