You guys have probably heard me talk about my favorite homemade dish of all time - Muenster Chicken. I grew up on this stuff and it is hands down the best chicken your taste buds will ever tango with. I have had several requests for the recipe (I've shown pictures of my Mom's before), and I made it last night so I figured now was a perfect time to share with you a recipe that will change your life.
Now. Let's get to cooking.
Let's rewind to the night before. Take a bag of chicken tenders (or breasts - but tenders are easier), and cut them into bite size pieces. (I use an entire bag of frozen Tyson chicken tenders.)
Marinate them in 4-5 egg yolks. Let marinate overnight. If you don't do the overnight, let it marinate for at least 4 hours.
(I did not include a picture of this because it is not exactly the most appetizing of combinations. Raw chicken and egg yolks? Ew.)
Roll the chicken pieces in Italian flavored bread crumbs and fry them in butter, margarine or Crisco. I used margarine because I had several boxes. We usually always use regular butter, but for some reason I had a lot of margarine.
It may seem like a ton of butter (and it is), but with all that chicken, you need it!
Fry all the chicken until golden brown. (It takes me 3 batches to fry it all.)
Place in a 9X13 pan.
(It looks like a bunch of Chik-Fil-A nuggets!)
Pour 1 can of chicken broth over the chicken and top with Muenster cheese.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
I'm telling you, your family will DEVOUR this stuff. And no, it is by no means "heart healthy", but it is delicious. Trust me on this one. Nom nom nom...
