Baked Barbecue Chicken Sandwich Recipe

These Baked Barbecue chicken Sandwiches are quick, easy, and perfect for a chilly day. Not to mention they were absolutely delicious.. we devoured them instantly. The best part is it only requires 5 ingredients and you can shake up the recipe however you want. If you don’t have any leftover chicken you can easily throw some into a crock pot for the day and dinner will only take you about 15 minutes tops. How great is that?

  • Bacon Bits

Directions:

  1. If using leftover chicken, make sure to reheat it a bit in the microwave.
  2. Mix together barbecue sauce and shredded/diced chicken.  (I didn’t measure the sauce, just use what looks right.)
  3. Fill the sandwich rolls with the chicken mixture, top with a bit more BBQ sauce.
  4. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet with a lip (our Personalized 9×13″ Glass Baking Dish works perfect!)

Crispy Cheddar Chicken Recipe

For this week’s recipe we tried out a Crispy Cheddar Chicken Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up! Blog. As Jamie calls this recipe, it is, ” Simple and easy and tasty and smile provoking…an all around treasure.” After making the recipe ourselves in our 9×13 Non-Stick Pan, we thought exactly the same thing. If you are in need of a quick dinner this is exactly it!

 

Crispy Cheddar Chicken Recipe

Crispy Cheddar Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

Chicken:
4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 C milk
3 C cheddar cheese, grated
1 t dried parsley
Sauce:
1   10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
2 T sour cream
2 T butter

 

Crispy Cheddar Chicken 3

Directions:

1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks.
2. In a small food processor grind up the ritz crackers.
3. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans. Toss the 1/4 t salt and 1/8 t pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine.
4. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Some of it will fall off when you add it to the cracker crumbs, don’t worry about it. Press the cheesy chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in. By the time you are coating the last piece of chicken, the dish you are using for the crumbs will be full of cheese. Don’t let it get you down. Once the cheese melts in the oven it will adhere nicely to the crumbs and the crackers.
5. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan.
6. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken.
7. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the tin foil, bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.
8. Into a medium sized sauce pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk. Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot. Serve over the chicken.
DINNER IS SERVED!

It is hard to get that great Orange Chicken Sauce Taste when making it homemade. Well we think we have it just right. Try it out for yourself and becoming a master at homemade orange chicken. It is easy to say this recipe is BETTER than Panda Express. The chicken is crispy and the sauce is similar, but this homemade sauce recipe is just all around more delicious, with more of an authentic orange flavor.  And the homemade orange chicken costs less than Panda too! We ever threw some broccoli into ours to add some veggies. You can really add anything you would like to it. But you cannot have it without some cream cheese wontons as well. This is one of our absolute favorite recipes!

 

Better than Panda Express Orange Chicken & Cream Cheese Wonton Recipe

Better than Panda Express Orange Chicken & Cream Cheese Wonton Recipe

Orange Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

Chicken

 

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (or other frying oil)

 

Sauce

 

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from 2 to 3 oranges)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sriracha, more or less to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried ground ginger (or 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch + 2 tablespoons cold water

Directions:

  1. Season cut chicken with salt and pepper. Add 3/4 cup cornstarch and chicken pieces to a gallon-size resealable bag. Shake to evenly coat the chicken.
  2. In a medium saucepan whisk together the broth, orange zest, orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, Sriracha, ginger, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir in the cornstarch dissolved in water. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Keep warm.
  3. Add beaten eggs to a shallow dish. Heat oil in a large skillet or saucepan on medium-high heat. (The oil needs to be hot, but reduce heat if it starts splattering too much.) Working in batches (about 3 total) dip each coated piece of chicken in the egg, then add it to the hot oil. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer cooked chicken to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Serve chicken immediately over rice, tossed or drizzled with the sauce and any veggies you would like to top it off with.

 

Cream Cheese Wontons Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese – softened ( regular or lowfat)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons scallions sliced thin
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • wonton wrappers
  • Oil

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a cooking pot – you need to get it up to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together ( cream cheese, garlic powder, and scallions)
  3. Place 1 tablespoon of mix in a middle of a wonton wrapper
  4. Fold wanton in half (as a triangle) & simple just found in all 3 edges. Secure the edges with water to ensure they stick together.
  5. Put wonton into oil & cook until golden brown
  6. Once golden brown place on a paper towel – make sure you let them cool before eating them! (We know it is tempting!)

FINALLY! ENJOY!

We would love to know what you think! Share with us your own favorite recipes as well.

1/2 C. peanut butter, creamy

3. Pour over cereal and fold until covered.
4. Dump into a large plastic bag and add brownie mix, seal and shake until coated. (If you don’t have a large plastic bag, pour brownie mix over cereal and stir well. Or you can use a pot with a lid to shake it in.)
