On my way home from going to a great book sale in New Hamburg, I thought about what to cook for supper. Chicken. Cooking chicken the same old way can get pretty boring. I was also hungry so wanted something that would take too long but also be cooked!
I ventured onto my favourite online recipe site: www.allrecipes.com and typed in “shake and bake chicken”. That’s what I wanted to make but I didn’t have any shake ‘n bake at home. I was sure there would be a recipe that didn’t require the store bought shake ‘n bake.
After a few minutes of looking I found the following recipe:
I modified the recipe a bit. Sometimes I like to take recipes and make them my own. Or maybe it is because I didn’t have everything for this recipe.
I used two boned pieces of chicken. I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and I used Montreal Steak Spice instead of paprika and sage. Next time I will try it with olive oil instead of butter hoping for a more healthier alternative. I followed the rest of the directions – cooking it at 350. My oven is a bit hotter then it should be. I also think I cooked it for about 10 more min longer then suggested.
The result: mmm mmm goodness! Crispy. Delightful. I ate it all before anything else on my plate, well with a few bites of whipped potato in between. Definitely something that I will cook again. I like good easy recipes. Oh, and I went to take the drumstick off the breast and it came off without the meat. I love it when chicken falls of the meat! So good!
If you try, let me know how you like!
Yum Yum food!
