Once Again Pea Has Inspired Me

This was dinner tonight. DH thought it was great. I told him to thank Pea in Sudbury. He just looked at me. He knew it was a blog "thing". LOL.

Pea made some chicken fingers last night. I had chicken breast thawing to make for dinner. After seeing her fingers, I decided to make something similar. I baked mine in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. They were great. We also had mixed veggies, tossed salad and corn muffin tops (bought at Walmart today--they were VERY good).

Thanks,Pea. If I hadn't read your blog, I would have made the same old boring chicken breasts, topped with cheese and salsa.

Update: Monday, 400 pm

I really should not post a food picture and not give the recipe. Don’t you hate it when you see something you want to make and there is no recipe?

So here is what I did:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

I took 6 breast halves and cut them in pieces. I crushed about 4 garlic cloves and threw them on top with a light sprinkling of soy sauce and a drizzle of olive oil. They marinated in the refrigerator for about three hours.

I took a large freezer zip lock bag and tossed in about 3/4 of a cup of flour, a couple good shakes of paprika, salt, pepper, and some green dried stuff that I don’t remember what it was (big grin). I remember the Food & Beverage Director from work gave it to me for something I planned on making. I must not have made the dish and now don’t know what it was. If I had to guess I would say thyme. It does not really matter, use any spices/herbs that appeal to you.

Drop 6 or 7 pieces of chicken in at a time and toss to lightly coat. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and arrange in pan so no pieces are touching (I had to use 2 pans for the 6 chicken breasts). Drop in a few chunks of butter. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. It really depends on how thick your chicken pieces are. Just don’t over bake or they will be dry. If they don’t look browned enough, you can put them under the broiler for the last 5 min. of cooking. I did not do that.


  1. Awwww, I'm so glad they turned out for you Zoey!! I've never tried baking them but now that I see they turned out just as well, I will certainly try that too. I always have to make these chicken fingers when my boys are home:-) Hugs xox

  2. Mmmmm! Looks tasty:)

  3. What's on those, Zoey? They look great! I am starving. I think I will go over to McDonald's now...

  4. That looks like a delicious meal Zoey. I'll have to try this recipe. We do get into ruts with our cooking, don't we?
    I began writing this comment earlier and accidently clicked a link that took me back to your July '05 I had a fun time browsing through them, looking at your colorful garden photos.
    Now I'm back in the present, staring out at our white world of winter. It was a lovely diversion. Thanks :)
    Love your snowman!
