Hagmans Maple Flavored Chicken

11 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I know this has been discussed so forgive the repeat. I love the way this recipe smells when making it.

6 Boneless chicken breasts halves

Salt and pepper

1 cup of maple flavored syrup

1/2 cup of fruit or white vinegar

1/2 cup of ketchup

1/4 cup of brown sugar.

The problem: she calls for it to bake for 1 1/2 hours covered and baste for a half hour uncovered. The chicken always comes out tough and dry. What advice would you have to make the chicken more moist.

I can't imagine cooking chicken breast halves for 2 hours total and not having them come out dry. The cooking time is just too long...what oven temperature do you use?

I totally agree with Sylvia. That cooking time is much too long unless the chicken breasts are huge and frozen solid to begin with.

So about how long do you suppose it should take?

For those that might be interested to know the answer to my last question of how to make a chicken so it doesn't come out to dry please refer to the following article:

http://busycooks.about.com/od/chickenrecipes/a/howtocookchixbr.htm

It says that you should soak the chicken in salt and sugar water. How long depends on how thawed the chicken is.

I know it's a silly question but hey that's just me.

That is called a brine. I brine whole chickens, duck, pork, etc. Sometimes my brine contains juniper berries, bay leaves, citrus zest, maple syrup, etc.

But 1.5-2 hours is crazy long for chicken breasts. I would bake for 30 minutes and then see if they are done. It also helps to pound the chicken into an even thickness - often breasts are thicker on one end than the other.

Oh My Gosh!!!! :lol: I have found heaven. I soaked that bird for almost two days and put it in the slow cooker for four hours. You want to talk about something good. You have got to try this recipe!!

So what recipe did you finally use, Ken? Inquiring minds need to know. smile.gif

I still used the recipe above but I believe the brining was the key. When I went to slice the chicken it fell off in nice juicy pieces. No dry chicken here. I'm going to use some of it for a pot pie later this week. Thanks for all your input. No more dry chicken for me!! :)

Yes - brining makes ALL the difference for chicken breast as it is a dry cut of meat to begin with. Just wait until you experiment with various brines. I have an entire book on just brines.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
