Chicken Divan and Bread on SBGE

Ok so i've been dieing to make some bread. I also made probably one of my if not the most favorite meals: Chicken Divan. I love, love this dish. This recipe has been passed down i think 4 generations. I'd like to make this at an eggfest someday. And the bread was awesome, although the bottom got a little bit overdone. I did a small loaf just to see how it would turn out...Both the bread and chicken divan were made the night before. A little bit of prep time involved but you can stick in refridge which makes for an easy cook the next day...

In a preheated egg & DO @ 450*. Could have done better on the parchiment paper... guess i didn't need a 2 foot piece of paper for a 6" loaf of bread... :whistle:

On a rack to cool. Covered and brought egg temps down to around 375-400 for:

This guy... it's chicken, brocolli, muschrooms, extra sharp cheese, curry and some other stuff. I love this dish...

So after the chicken divan was done i went ahead and cut into the bread... It looked great, except for

This part... Could be better, but was not horrible. Will drop temps down to i dunno... 400*-425 next time..

at this point i was salivating...

This meal was definately good eats, thanks for looking.

    Also, pretty much everyone on this forum loves char, and I really hope you didn't scrape some of that off. :P

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chicken Dive In (what it is referred to at our table).

    It is a little early for a heavy meal right now, but I would absolutely eat that entire dish of CD right now. Greeat stuff, and I will be looking to cook our next batch on the egg instead of the inside oven.
  • Would LOVE the recipe on both, but especially the bread!

    i think you'll love it in the egg. I always grill the chicken on the egg, and cook the whole dish on the egg. Definatley adds a nice flavor and smoke to the dish you can't get in the oven. Don't get me wrong, I'd lick the plate clean if it had been made in the oven. This just puts a nice little twist to it... .

    here's the link to the bread recipe i used. I cut this recipe in exactly half. Also, MountainGriller was using a large with platesetter and stone. Where as i was using a small with just 2 firebrick splits side by side for the DO. that may be why my bread a little "char"....
    I let my breast rest for 24 hours. Not for any reason just because it worked out that way.. Other than that i pretty much followed it exactly.. Put a couple slits in the top before baking, sprayed a little water on dough before putting in DO. Also only went for like 20 covered 5 uncovered because i had split the recipe in half. Hope that helps, good luck.

    As far as the divan recipe, i'm at work right now but can get it later when i'm home.
  • Awesome! Been trying my hand at bread lately - but none has turned out as pretty as yours. I agree, that the platesetter with a raised stone would probably avoid the "char" on the bottom. But, even with the char, it still looked great - around my house, that just makes it "blackened bread". ;)
  • That looks really good
