(Really Awesome) Spinach Coated Chicken

It's no secret around here, I'm not a professional food blogger and I'm really bad about taking pictures to share amazing recipes. However, there is the brief moment where I shine through and remember to document experiments in the kitchen!

For this particular recipe, I was inspired by the mayonnaise commercial that tells you to coat the chicken in mayo and then top with bread crumbs. Apparently to keep the chicken moist or something like that. Whatever the commercial said. Clearly I paid attention. 

I did a little google search on that recipe and found this one: "Amazing Chicken Recipe"
I, however took a twist on it. Mostly because I *ahem* ran out of mayo. Oops. Improv to the rescue in Kitchen Camacho!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves. 
  • A Spoonful of mayonnaise. 
  • 1/2 cup Spinach Dip of your choice
  • 2 Cups Seasoned bread crumbs * 
** I used my homemade Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  • Garlic, Salt & Pepper to season chicken. (season to taste). 
What To Do: 
+ Pre-heat your oven to 425
+ Grease a shallow baking dish
+ In a small bowl, mix the mayo and spinach dip
+ Season your chicken and coat with the dip mixture
+ Roll your coated chicken in the bread crumbs
+ Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until the chicken isn't pink & the juices run clear. 
The whole family loved this dish. It paired well with mixed veggies! 
Do you ever have to improvise with recipes to make sure dinner gets on the table?

  1. Ahhhhhh! This looks incredible! And I think at least two of our girls...Miss O is a food-diva, would love it! Thank you for this!! xo

  2. This sounds really good! Chicken is my favorite thing to make, so I will have to try this.

  3. OH man that sounds delicious! I'm always looking for ways to spice up my chicken since it's the only meat I eat.

  4. it's seriously SO good! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I highly suggest playing around with it. If you like spicy, maybe use a chipolte mayo spread instead. make things fun! :D

  5. I managed to import your comment back onto disqus, so YAY for that. hopefully my replies are going through. :/ lol, but anyway, yes! I hope you do try it!

  6. You're so welcome. I'm always happy to see that my kitchen experiments turn out well! haha

  7. This looks yummy! I tend not to improvise, just because there's a shop 6 doors down so I run there instead!

  8. This looks amazing! Jason is obsessed with that dip and would love this recipe. Sometimes the best dishes are concocted when you don't have the proper ingredients! Thank you for sharing!

  9. oh that dip is a favorite in our house for sure! did you know it tastes REALLY good with original doritos?? true story. haha. I'm always happy to share my kitchen accidents when they turn out amazing!

  10. Um hello this looks delicious! I miss expiramenting with foods. Maybe I'll add this one to the list. I'm so hungry now ha

  11. it was so good! And it reheated well too. Even better for left overs!

  12. Does the chicken come out juicy? I have such bad luck cooking chicken in the oven - it always comes out dry! This does look awesome though.

  13. it was juicy! And I was nervous about it being dry, too because I've had that problem all other times I bake the chicken too. but no, it was really good and juicy. I think if you use smaller/ thinner cuts of chicken I wouldn't cook it as long but with the breasts it was just right!
