Malibu Chicken

I will write an update post later but just know that we are in Utah and mostly settled in. I spent last Monday-Thursday feeling like death so that kind of stalled my plans to get us completely unpacked. However, the important stuff was done the same day our stuff arrived (on Jan 31st) since we were having people over for the Super Bowl.

After a week of not even brushing my hair (I did wash it) I felt great on Friday and was ready to do my "wifey" things. I went to the grocery store, got my car washed, paid bills, and bought the stuff to try a new recipe. The Malibu chicken was a recipe I found on Pinterest from Chef in Training. It said that it was a copy cat recipe from Sizzler. It's simple enough but still a little fancy and The Husband deserved something a little special for everything he does for us.

This recipe was my first time using panko crumbs and my first time having to mince garlic. I feel like I need to be completely honest here and let you know that I had to YouTube how to mince garlic and at one point had a knife over the garlic and was using a meat mallet to hammer it. It was pretty interesting.

Anyway, the chicken was delicious and according to everyone made me wish I could smell through my stuffy nose. The Husband said he could smell it coming up the stairs and my parents stopped by to say hello and said the same thing. It really is something a little fancier that might be nice for a romantic dinner for two.

Malibu Chicken
4 chicken breasts
5 egg yolks
3 Tbs minced garlic
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 Tbs garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 pieces of ham
4 pieces of swiss cheese

Malibu Dipping Sauce
2 Tbs Grey Poupon mustard
3 Tbs mayo
1 tsp yellow mustard
1 tsp honey

1. Combine the egg yolks and garlic and pour into a large plastic bag. Put in the four chicken breasts and make sure all pieces are completely covered with mixture. Place in the fridge for at least four hours.

2. In a bowl, mix the panko crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and dump them into a 9x9 pan. Spread them evenly on the bottom of the pan.

3. Remove the chicken from the bag and coat the chicken with the crumb mixture. Bake chicken at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes depending on how thick your chicken breasts are.

4. Place one slice of ham and cheese on each chicken breast and cook for an additional two minutes until the cheese is melted.

5. Mix all the ingredients for the Malibu dipping sauce in a bowl. Spoon over chicken breast and enjoy!
