Fran's Fantastic Food Fetish!

This isn't actually my recipe, but it's one I thought was interesting enough to give a whirl:

Gingersnap Chicken Breast with Samuel Adams OctoberFest & Raisin Gravy (Recipe by Chef David Burke)

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup gingersnap cookies, ground
  • 2 egg whites
  • Salt/pepper

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cut with semi-whipped egg whites. Coat with cookie crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cooked.


  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 12 oz Samuel Adams OctoberFest
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ½ cup brown gravy

Method: Sautee onion and garlic until brown. Add beer and brown gravy and reduce by half. Add raisins. Cook for another ten minutes. Mix in 2 oz butter and salt and pepper. Add steamed spinach underneath chicken for a garnish. Pour sauce over chicken and top with lots of chopped chives.
