  • Pour water into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Whisk oil, chocolate syrup, egg, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl. Mix bread crumbs and cocoa powder together in a shallow bowl.

  • Poke holes into chicken breasts using a fork. Dip chicken in the oil mixture, covering completely. Press chicken into bread crumb mixture until both sides are coated. Arrange chicken in the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this recipe and had to make it. It is not overpowering chocolate at all. However it does have a slight burnt taste to it that was not agreeable. Maybe if it was cooked at a lower temperature would eliminate that. The bottom 'crust' has a tendency to fall off like most breadings seem to. Thanks for the challenge. Read More

I was torn between 2 and 3 stars for this recipe. At first bite it's not too bad. Chicken came out moist and tender but then a lingering after taste that can be described as bitter and burnt comes out. I think maybe because there is nothing to balance all the cocoa powder. Read More
