Spicy. Crunchy. Sweet.

Cheesy Crunch, Spicy Baked Chicken
This baked chicken has just the right amount of spice, and crunch. The balance of the sweet corn, and earthy broccoli does wonder to your taste buds,as it calms the spice just enough to enjoy. I hope you like it as much as I did!

Prep Time:10 minutes - Cook Time: 45 minutes
1 chicken Breast
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Cup Franks Red Hot Sauce
1 Tablespoon Ketchup
1 Cup finely chopped Celery
1 Cup Broccoli cuts
1 Corn on the cob
1 boiled Potato
Mild Cheddar Cheese
Flour, Milk, & Oil

  • Preheat oven to 350, pour about 1 inch of oil in a frying pan, and set to Medium heat.
  • Next, Take your thawed chicken breast (slightly pounded) and evenly sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides. Then lightly coat chicken in flour, dust off excess flour, dip coated chicken in milk, and back once more in the flour. After your last dip in flour, place the chicken in the oil, and cook on each side for up to 3 1/2 minutes. Remove from oil, blot with paper towel, and transfer the chicken in to oven safe cookware.
  • The next step is to take your thawed corn on the cob and broccoli, wrap in foil (separately), with 1 tablespoon of butter in each, and a few pinches of pepper. Seal the foil, and place in the oven.
  • Start boiling your potato, and in a separate sauce pan, mix 1 tablespoon of butter, 1/2 cup Franks Red hot Sauce, and 1 tablespoon of ketchup on low heat. Keep warm.

  • After your chicken has been baking for about 25 minutes, take your chicken out of the oven, and cover it with your finely chopped celery and cheese, and place back into the oven for an another 13 minutes. Next, Remove corn, broccoli, and Chicken from oven (at your desired level of tenderness), and remove your boiled potato and sauce from heat. 

Remove the skin of potato, and place on a plate before slightly dicing the mash. Once you dice the potato, place the celery and cheese covered chicken on top of the potato, top with your spicy sauce (however much you'd like), and you can add a few pieces of broccoli to the top, side, or both. don't forget sweet corn on the cob to balance out your palette.
