Let's just say that for us, this looked better raw and it turned into a cooking mess.
|What I used...|
|Doesn't that look like it would taste delicious??|
Anyway, I put it all together, stuck it in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes like he said. 35 minutes later, I check the meat because there they were kinda large. Yup, not done. Back in for 20 minutes. Take it out and this is what it looks like:
|Looks good doesn't it?|
The meat was STILL not done. Kinda frustrating.
At this point, I put it BACK IN for another 30 minutes. We're now at almost 80 minutes cooking. FINALLY done. But by that time, we had moved on to something else so yeah, whatever. The chicken is sitting in my fridge for some leftovers. We'll see how this goes.
The Verdict: Not sure. All I know is that the cheese is now a crunchy deep brown. The croutons that touched the sauce is completely mushy. I don't do mushy bread. No freaking way, no how. Not sure if I will ever make this again. Probably not.
Recipe for those that might want to try it!! There is a video that goes into detail, sorry I can't copy and paste that!
