smokey sherry chicken


this smokey sherry chicken is my all-time favorite chicken.  hands down.  i would always request this chicken and my brother would always request hawaiian chicken (which i’ll make soon, don’t worry).  i was scared to make it, because i was worried i would mess it up.  NO MESSING THIS ONE UP.  it is SO easy, and SO delicious.  i’ve literally eaten the leftovers at work for 2 days now.  i’m sad its about to be gone.  but since its so easy to make i’ll just have to try it again :).  Pat was skeptical, as always, but he loved it as well.  he even ate it twice in one night as a late night snack.

what i love most about his recipe now that i’ve made it, is that there is barely any prep.  you mix together the sauce, pour over the chicken, and bake.  its that easy.  below are pics of the prep.  you lay the dried beef in a single layer on the pan, put your chicken on top, pour over your sauce (the sauce is relatively thick, so you might want to spread it over the chicken evenly) and then add your prosciutto or bacon.  this step is mostly for taste.  i prefer prosciutto but bacon is also very tasty.

now you’re ready to serve! minute rice or baked potato are the perfect compliments to this dish.  i love to use the extra sauce on my baked potato.  um…amazing.  i know i say i love everything i’ve made so far…but this is my all-time favorite.  throw our your dinner plans and make this tonight.  (pat and i are on the wedding diet.  substitute low-fat sour cream if you wish to make this slightly healthier!)

This looks delicious and I can't wait to try it soon.. one question, what exactly is dry beef and where would I find that in the store? Thank you! :)

    I had such a hard time finding it too!! this was my FAVORITE recipe my mom made growing up and I definitely had to call her from the grocery store asking the same question :). in my grocery store it is in the canned vegetable or canned meat a glass jar. I had to ask one of the staff. its just strips or circles of dried beef...sometimes also called 'chip beef'. it kind of looks like salami. (you can see in the prep picture how it comes in circles). if you can't find it, you could use prosciutto instead and that would be good! hope you like it, let me know how it turns out!!! thanks for stopping by :)
      Thank you so much for replying back so quickly! I will be on the lookout tomorrow when I go shopping! Can't wait to try this!

    I agree. I really need to look into apps that will do that for me. i'll get researching!
Any ideas on a substitute for the cream of mushroom soup? My family won't touch it if they see the mushrooms.

    You could blend up the soup to make the mushrooms super super small, or possible use a different "cream of" soup. I do love the flavor it adds, so maybe just blending it up would do the trick! Hope you all love it :)

      Don't mean to butt in, but cream of chicken soup would probably be really good. It is my favorite of cream soups to cook with.
This looks delish. WHere woukd i find dried beef? Is it some kind of jerky, how is it pa kaged, etc?

    Hi! Usually its in a jar in the condiment section. I had to ask someone at my grocery store. It looks kind of like thin pepperoni. Hope you love the recipe! It's one of our favorites :)
