Swiss Chicken with White Wine

This recipe was submitted by Eric Nagel: My family has been enjoying eMeals for a few months now (my review of eMeals can be read here), and recently we had our first meal that called for wine.  The kids loved the Swiss Chicken, but I thought the stuffing was rather dry (and burnt, in some areas). Next time we have this meal, I’d like to cover the dish with aluminum foil to see if the stuffing could remain moist. Also, my wife just grabbed a bottle of wine from the basement (it was a bottle from my recent shipment from Laithwaites wine club) – I wonder how a different white wine would change this dish?

‘Wish I was in Oaxaca’ Chicken

RandallPMcMurphy Says: I make the chili powder from scratch using Alton Brown’s Recipe. Maggi seasoning is like Mexican soy sauce. It’s awesome.

  5. Cover, & place pot in oven for 2.5 hours or until chicken is fork tender.
  6. Remove chicken from the pot & set aside. Use an immersion blender, or carefully pour braising liquid into a blender & blend until smooth. Taste. Season with Maggi seasoning & pepper to taste.

Submitted by Whim
Serves 2


2 c. Captain Crunch cereal 2 c. corn flakes
1 egg 1 c. milk
1 c. all-purpose flour 1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder ½ tsp black pepper
2 lbs chicken breast cut into 1 oz. cube Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals & set aside.  Beat the egg with milk & set aside.
  2. Stir together the flour, onion & garlic powders & black pepper.
  3. Dredge the tenders in the flour, then the egg wash, then the cereal mixture.
  4. Either use a deep fryer to fry or pan fry the tenders on low until they are done.  Be careful not to turn the temperature up too high or the cereal will start to caramelize.

Chef’s Note: If you like more sweet taste, or less sweet, adjust the cereals to get the right level.  Don’t use olive oil for the frying; they don’t taste right.
