This whole pregnancy, I have had a huge aversion to meat. Specifically big pieces of meat. It has been super frustrating for me to say the least because I haven’t been able to enjoy some of the foods that I typically love so much. Even the sight of it was enough to get my nausea rolling… that was until this meal.
My mom used to work at Sizzler once upon a time a very LONG time ago. One of her favorite dishes from Sizzler was their Malibu Chicken. She has since made it for our family time and time again. However, it had definitely been a while since the last time I had eaten this wonderful meal. Well, she made it for our Easter dinner and I could not stop eating it and told her she needed to write down the recipe immediately for me. It was the first thick piece of meat I have thoroughly enjoyed and gobbled up in my almost 37 weeks of pregnancy. I have had it for 2 dinners since. That is how much I LOVE this recipe. The dipping sauce compliments the chicken so wonderfully. You can all thank my amazing mom for this recipe… and trust me, you are not going to want to lose it! This has officially made it into my my TOP 5 FAVORITE Dinners of ALL TIME! That is saying something.
Normally I would fry the chicken breast like I would my fried chicken but I wanted to do something different this time. I switched up some ingredients and baked it. It turned out delicious! The mayo/mustard dipping sauce served along side will remind you of a similar version Sizzler had way back when.
4 boneless chicken breast
1 large egg
1/4 c milk
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1 crushed french fried onions
12 crushed buttery round crackers
4 slices deli ham
4 slices swiss cheese
2 Tbsp mayo
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
How to Make Malibu Chicken II
1 Whisk together the egg, milk and seasoning in a bowl big enough to dip the chicken in. Place the onions and crackers on a plate and combine. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture then press into the cracker mixture on both sides. Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil and lightly greased. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove and top with the ham and cheese. Return to the oven for 5-7 minutes for the cheese to get nice and melted.
2 Whisk together the mayo and mustard. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
