cheese squared: potato chip crusted chicken and cheesy grits

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009


let's call it a weak moment, shall we? by the end of "tomato week" i had had enough of eating healthy and wanted to splurge a little.  meagan shared the same sentiments as me and requested something really cheesy.  i whipped up potato chip crusted chicken and cheesy grits.  and a little broccoli so we didn't feel too guilty. 

ingredients:
chicken breast
crushed up sour cream and cheddar chips
3 cups of chicken stock
3/4 cup of 5-minute grits
1/4 cup velvetta, plus extra if you're feeling generous
broccoli
evoo
s&p

directions:
preheat oven to 350 degrees. pound out chicken breasts, until about 1/2 inch thick. brush some evoo over chicken and season with s&p.  coat chicken with crushed potato chips, press down to make sure they stick.  cook for 20 minutes or until done, flipping halfway through.  this will ensure that both sides get crispy.  in another pan bring chicken stock to boil. add grits and cook for 5 minutes. stir in velvetta cheese and s&p. cook broccoli in vegetable steamer for 10 minutes.  season with evoo and s&p.

the results were well worth any self-inflicting guilt i may have imposed on myself.  next time you're having one of those days, go ahead and try this cheesy decadence. i promise you'll fall in love.
