Boneless chicken breasts cooked over sauerkraut and covered in BBQ sauce. This sounds a little different, but I assure you, it is delicious! It is one of my family's favorites. The BBQ sauce makes the sauerkraut a little sweet. I like to serve this dish with mashed potatoes.

Sounds weird but it's a new family favorite. I'd suggest sticking with standard kraut (not Bavarian) or it could easily get too sweet. If using frozen chicken breast use the cooking directions on the package but layer as per the directions here. Excess barbecue sauce gives a mellow smoky sweet taste to the kraut. Drain the kraut first so you get a nice blend of flavors instead of a puddle. Read More

This reminded me (just a little) of Polish "Kapusta" which is a sweet and sour flavored cooked cabbage (minus the tomato base of bbq sauce). With this recipe however the flavor varies a lot depending on the bbq sauce you use. The chicken was good but I like much better with a Polish sausage or Bratwurst and homemade-type noodles (frozen "Reames" brand are excellent)with some of the sauce. This was easier than making "Kapusta" so I might experiment with different bbq sauces. Read More

This dish is marvelous!! A breeze to put together and the kraut is abolutely delicious with that barbque suace simmered into it. I did have to cook this for about 50 minutes though for the chicken to get done. Maybe I used thicker breasts. Definitely making this again. Read More

This was better than I thought it would be. The only thing I would change (and this is just for our own taste) is that the BBQ sauce I used was pretty strong so I might go with something milder next time. Something on the sweet side as opposed to the heavy smokey side. Read More

My husband loved this and I love how easy it is to make -- but I can't help wishing there was a little more to it. Some vegetables or something. I think I'll experiment with other ingredients the next time I make it. (But I will make it again; it got enthusiastic thumbs up from the fam.) Read More

My husband loved this!! He'd give it 10 stars if he could... of course he is a big fan of the kraut!!! He said he would even like it without the chicken!! I on the other hand am not a big fan of it...but the bar-b-q sauce changes it for the better.. i also drained my kraut well.... I think this is important... I think it would be too runny.. used honey b-b-q sauce... Most importantly.. it doesnt get any easier... served with "healthy" baked beans and "lighter" mashed potatoes...oh yeah and I did not cover thinking again of it becoming runny.. the kraut was "thick" and carmelized.. it was good!

This recipe was good in flavor but I ended up having to microwave it at the end because the chicken wasn't done! I'm not sure what went wrong. Maybe next time I'll pound out the chicken breasts before I put them in the oven. -Allison Read More
