Making a great main dish with French's Crunch Time Entrees couldn't be easier. French's sent me a couple of varieties to try, so I made the Chipotle BBQ for our Easter dinner. It was so easy:
In addition to the French's Crunch Time Entrees pack, you will need 4 servings of chicken, beef, pork, or seafood, 1 lightly beaten egg, and 2 tablespoons of flour (the photos and descriptions below apply to the Chipotle BBQ variety but the process is similar for all varieties).
Dip the meat in the beaten egg.
Mix the Crunchy Coating (found in the French's Crunch Time Entrees pack) with the 2 tablespoons flour, then dip the meat in the mixture.
Arrange the meat on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in an oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees F.
Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. I actually let mine stay in for 35 minutes because my pork chops were on the thick side and they still seemed a bit tough after 20 minutes. After 35 minutes, the crumb topping was golden brown and the inside was flavorful and tender!
The whole family enjoyed our Easter meal. Some of us drizzled the Chipotle BBQ Sauce (included in the French's Crunch Time Entree packet) but others found it a bit spicy and used regular BBQ sauce instead. It was delicious, and so easy to make!
