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.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
