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.
