I first posted this recipe for Country Chicken back in December 2011 and couldn’t wait to make it again. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long because it used to be one of those recipes I would whip up for dinner all of the time. My family loves it and I’ve often turned to this recipe when making food for a crowd as well because it’s so easy to make.

When I first saw this recipe many, many years ago, it originally called for entire sticks of butter for the bottom of the pan, dredging the chicken in melted butter prior to adding the breadcrumb and then again in the sauce. Hello! Heart Attack Waiting to Happen!!  Lucky for all of us that I was able to reduce the caloric intake by reducing the amount of butter while still managing to get the same taste and tenderness.

This recipe for Country Chicken comes out tender and delicious every time. Start off rinsing the tenderloins under cold water; then dipping them into Italian flavored breadcrumbs before putting them into an oven safe casserole dish.

While the tenderloins bake for 15-20 minutes, make your sauce consisting of butter, scallions, white wine and chicken broth; then pour the sauce over the chicken for another 15-20 minutes until it is cooked through. That’s it! Simple right? It comes out perfectly every time and it’s so good.

This Country Chicken also makes a great buffet item for those upcoming Graduation parties or Mother’s Day brunches. You can prepare everything ahead of time, including cooking times, remove from oven and let cool; then wrap tightly and freeze until ready to defrost and reheat. The sauce keeps the chicken moist and saves you time the day of your party. ~Enjoy!
