Recently I was asked to do a product review of Namaste Barbecue Coating Mix. I usually just mix up a concoction of Italian spices and toasted gluten-free bread crumbs to coat chicken, so I was excited to try something that was already pre-seasoned. This product contains no wheat, gluten, soy, corn, potato, dairy, casein, peanuts or tree nuts. Non-GMO, all natural, no preservatives.
We started with 3 chicken breasts and I used 1 whole egg to moisten the chicken. Prep was a little messy, even though I used the bag to mix. I may use a shallow dish next time and use egg whites instead of a whole egg since with three chicken breasts I barely used one egg.Instructions said 12-18 minutes, however, depending on the thickness of the chicken you may need to cook longer. My chicken breasts were pretty thick so I had to cook for 30 minutes. Around minute 12 I put tin foil loosely on top so that the top wouldn’t burn.
The chicken came out tender and the coating stayed on. Most of the coatings I put on my chicken slide off the second I cut into it. There was a nice honey taste to the chicken. I was expecting it to be salty but it had a nice pepper taste. It could almost be made spicy with a chipotle pepper spice or by adding Tobasco. The box came with two packages of coating I may try to go spicy with the next batch. I decided to go “healthy southern” to compliment the barbecue and cooked up some corn and mustard greens I got in my veggie bin .
And yes, it was a dinner on the couch kinda night with my love!
