In honor of Paul Newman: Chickenny Newman

FWK's alter ego is kenthecook. I've been playing around with this for about a year now. I've been using Paul Newman's Honey Mustard salad dressing as a marinade for chicken. I first tried it on chicken that I grilled. The results were excellent. But old FWK's brain wasn't done thinking yet, no sirreee.

I've always liked breaded and baked chicken. I thought if this dressing is a good grill marinade, maybe it would make a good base for crumbs. I had recently got into using Panko crumbs and decided to try them out. Another thing I did was season the chicken after it was trimmed of excess fat with "Slap Ya Mama" seasoning. I got this from Jerome, a former co-worker and cook who hails from New Orleans. I season the cut up chicken with Slap Ya Mama, put the chicken into a gallon zip lock, and add about 3/4 to 1 cup of Paul Newman's Honey Mustard dressing. Let it marinade in the fridge for a few hours. Take the chicken out and roll it in the Panko crumbs.

Place the chicken on a Pam sprayed sheet pan. I put foil down on the pan and spray that for easier cleaning.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Enjoy with your favorite beer.

You're welcome.

PS-the dressing is also very good on salads!
