Recipe for Baked Chicken Espagnole

Recipes for chicken are something that we tend make a lot, and I will admit to sometimes getting a little stale in my recipe choices. I have a little "cheat sheet" of recipes from my husband's family, and this is one of them.

I tend to forget about it and go for the "quick and easy" recipes more often these days, as I imagine many of us do. But you know, this particular recipe really isn't so difficult after all. And oh boy is it ever tasty!If you can't handle all the butter in this dish, you could try using some olive oil and/or chicken broth in its place, although I haven't tried it that way. And although I like using key lime juice, you can use regular lime juice too.This recipe serves 4, deliciously.


Baked Chicken a l'Espagnole

4 chicken breasts, skinned & deboned
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon key lime juice
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
8 scallions, green tops on, trimmed and sliced
6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
3/4 cup sweet peppers cored, de-seeded and sliced thinly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken in a baking dish and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. In a skillet, sauté the scallions, and sweet peppers in the butter until tender, then mix in the dill and key lime juice. Pour over the chicken, then sprinkle with the feta cheese. Put in the 350 degree oven and bake until done, approximately 1 hour.
I hope you enjoy this chicken recipe!
