Last night for dinner we wanted something simple. Every now and then I get a craving for something that one of my college roommates would make often when we lived in our apartment. We’ve always called it just Chicken in a Bag, which doesn’t sound so appetizing, but it tastes so good. Make sure you get the country style – it has the creamy, tasty sauce.
All you do is put the about 2 pounds of chicken in a bag (we usually do breasts and/or thighs), mix the seasoning with some flour and water, pour it over the chicken, seal the bag and bake for an hour. It is so tender and has a great flavor. And it just doesn’t get much easier than that. If you’ve never had it, buy a packet (they’re about $2) and keep it on hand for one of those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking much.
We had some rice with it to pour the extra sauce over (it calls for 2 1/2 pounds of chicken but we never use that much, so we just have lots of extra sauce) and some fresh green beans. Delish.
