JEFF’S CHICKEN ELLIE RECIPE
Jeff made this for dinner the night before Ellie was born, and now it’s a fave in the Dauler house!
1 1/2 to 2 lbs chicken breasts (for best results, pound the breasts so they’re an even thickness … about a half-inch is perfect.
Combine the following to make Chicken Ellie Magic Dust:
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
Step 1: Lightly coat one side of the chicken with olive oil then sprinkle with half of the magic dust. Spread coating over whole breast. Flip chicken over and repeat.
Step 2: Bake for 17-20 minutes. The magic dust will become a golden color and form a crust. That’s when it’s done.
Step 3: Let chicken rest for 5 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
The seasoning is enough for about 4 or 5 breasts.
