Many years ago, we watched the movie “Seems Like Old Times”, starring Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn and one of the plotlines involved Goldie, or her housekeeper, making her famous Pepperoni Chicken for her husbands boss. Bev thought the name of the dish sounded delicious and we searched high and low for a recipe, to no avail. Bev finally invented a dish using the ingredients and it was pretty good, but we were both really excited when Dennis over at More Than A Mountful posted a recipe for it. We decided we had to try it – whether or not it was Goldie’s version. I won’t repost his recipe, so you can go to his site and read the story that goes with it, but here are a few preparation photos.
I used two breasts that weighed a little more than the pound called for in the recipe and sliced them cross-grain about 1/2" wide. I salted and peppered the chicken directly as I never seem to get enough when I use seasoned flour. I then coated them with flour in a plastic bag - evenly coated, no flour all over the kitchen, toss in the trash when done. I think I started with too much oil.
We all thought it had a unique flavor with the following conclusions - Pat thought it was okay (not unusual for her), Bev liked it and I thought it was very good and I'll plan to make it again sometime - thanks Dennis for posting the recipe.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
