Open-Faced Chicken Benedict
My husband enjoyed this recipe when he was growing up, so my mother-in-law passed it on to me when I wanted to surprise him with a special Valentine's Day dinner.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 6 slices Canadian bacon
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 3 English muffins, split and toasted
- Pound chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat.
- In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil until browned and juices run clear. Transfer to a platter and keep warm. Brown bacon in the same skillet, turning once; remove and keep warm.
- For sauce, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard and pepper in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through; hold over low heat (do not boil).
- Place English muffin halves on a baking sheet. Top each with a slice of bacon, one chicken breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce. Broil until bubbly.
Editor's Note: One envelope of Hollandaise sauce mix prepared according to package directions may be substituted for the homemade sauce.
