Posts Tagged ‘Chicken’

Ok, I had two boneless chicken breast out on the counter to defrost.  My wife gave me strict instructions NOT to make chicken Parmesan (which we both love but we are tired of saucy stuff).  So I decided to look up some chicken chili recipes – and basically ended up making my regular chili but with ground chicken instead of ground beef.

It tasted crappy.  It was probably healthy, and maybe someone might think it was good.  But not us.  We need the BEEF.  We need the beef fat.  We can’t take shortcuts and make chili from stuff that chili isn’t supposed to made from.  Its foul 😉

Lesson Learned ===>> Don’t make chicken chili – ever – again!

Scott McKenzie on MIX105.1 in Orlando was talking about Cheez-It Chicken this week. I couldn’t get it out of my head – so I searched around and found a recipe. This was great. Easy to prepare, and I think it would be something kids would like. For kids (especially little one – try using chicken tenders – finger food).

Two skinless/boneless chicken breast – pounded to a consistent thickness
1 cup of crushed (very fine) Cheez-It crackers (use a baggie)
Dabs of butter for the top of the chicken
1 egg beaten with a teaspoon of water to loosen it up
Non-stick spray for a 9×9 baking dish

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk the egg with the water until its very loose. Dip the chicken – both sides – in the egg and then dredge in the crushed Cheez-Its and then place in the sprayed baking dish.

Place three tabs of butter on each piece of chicken.

Bake at 375 for 40 minutes in the center of the over on the middle rack.

Cook frozen broccoli according to package directions, drain any water and toss with low-fat butter/margarine. Good stuff !!!

(I was in meeting after meeting today – around lunch – so I ended up at McDonalds and had a BigMac and a 1/4 Pounder with cheese, small fries, and med coke… – which I had to eat in my PM meeting) after all that I felt pretty good about this dinner.

Good luck fine people. Write if you have any questions: dadcooks at reciperedux dot com
