A couple days ago, I pulled what I thought was Cornflake Crusted Chicken with Ranch dressing out of the freezer. This meal could have been another contender for the Oldest Dream Dinners ever cooked, but was soon deemed ineligible for entry due because date of creation could not be verified. There was not cooking instructions label- which also explains the ‘thinking’ it was Cornflake Crusted Chicken’ as opposed to ‘knowing.’
After a thawing it in the refrigerator, I pulled the meal out of the freezer bag to start the cooking process. As soon as I opened up the breading mixture, I realized that I actually had no clue what kind of chicken it was – but I knew that it WASN’T Cornflake Crusted Chicken because there were no cornflakes in the breading mixture. I decided to live on the wild side and cook up this chicken anyways.
Now here’s where the mystery comes in. After eating this chicken both with and without Ranch Dressing, I still have no clue what kind of chicken this is. I quickly eliminated Parmesan Chicken because there was no tomato sauce in my bag – but there was Parmesan cheese in the breading mixture. Here’s what I do know:
Clue 1: Breading mixture had Parmesan cheese, parsley, and some sort of bread crumbs, but NOT Panko breadcrumbs
Clue 2: Chicken was marinating in a mixture that was a creamy orange color with pieces of garlic.
If anyone has cooked a chicken that looks like this one, please let me know what it is!
