Chicken Savoy

Easy make-ahead chicken recipes - This chicken savoy is simple and healthy. Baked in the oven, it's quick to prepare and you can do the bulk of the work the night before. Keto, paleo, and low carb if you skip the rice. We use boneless breasts, but you could also use bone in.

A couple of weeks ago, Joe found a recipe on a scrap of yellow paper tucked in a cookbook in our dining room.

Obviously, I had copied the recipe from somewhere, but I don't know when or from where.

In the margins, I'd make lots of notes and changes.

I vaguely remember eating it once, deciding that the chicken was dry, and writing it off. Joe remembered it too, but he remembered liking it. He decided to make it one day last week.

He usually makes our dinner in the evening, after Grace is asleep.

That way, he can turn the crock pot on or put the pan in the oven (or whatever) without a lot of prep work in the morning or after work.

After he made the Chicken Savoy, we decided to have corned beef ruebens instead.

The chicken ended up marinating for all but 48 hours, and that made it absolutely amazing.

It was moist, flavorful, and delicious. I think preparing the meal a day or two ahead is the key to this dish.

Instructions
  1. Arrange chicken, bacon, and vegetables in a 9x13 pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix oil, stock, and vinegar. Pour over chicken, bacon, and vegetables. Sprinkle spices over top. Top with cheese.
  3. Cover tightly and place pan in the refrigerator over night (or longer). {Side note - I'm not sure how safe it is to allow the chicken to marinate for longer than over night. I'd like to hear thoughts on that if you have any. Ours soaked for 2 whole days and turned out very well, but I don't want anyone to get sick from over-marinating their chicken.}
  4. To cook - Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve over rice. Jasmine rice is our favorite.

  1. Knowing my luck, I'd forget that I had it marinating in the fridge and find it pushed to the back a week later!! It sounds wonderful. I love that even the veggies are in the marinade.

  2. Oh my gosh…I am SALIVATING over here!!! This looks like the perfect recipe for me – something I can whip up at night and can be placed in the oven by my husband before I get home! Thank you so much for helping to add another recipe to my repetoire! I need them!!!! 🙂
