The rest of the day was just as good, they took a long nap, woke up happy. I had made some cookies earlier and so we painted our cookies and added some sprinkles too!.
Since they were so good all day, I thought they would love some oven fried chicken for dinner. Boy was I right! They ate all of it and cookies too. A mommy couldn’t ask for a better day.
To top it all off, I got a great comment from Ms. Green Tea on my How – to Butcher your own Chicken entry. Thanks Ms. Tea! I hope you stop by again!
1 chicken cut into pieces and skin removed
1 sleeve of buttery crackers ( i.e. Ritz, Club, Town House, etc.), crushed
1 cup mayo ( light or fat free is fine)
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
1 Tbsp. dried minced onion flakes
a little water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a shallow dish or a plastic bag mix together mayo, mustard and onion. Add a splash of water to thin mixture slightly. In another shallow dish or plastic bag add crushed crackers. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then coat with mayo mixture, then coat with crackers. Transfer to a greased cookie sheet. Continue with the rest of the chicken. Bake for 20-30 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking, until juices run clear.
This chicken is phenomenal. It’s crispy, juicy, and has lots of flavor. Feel free to use this on boneless breasts or strips as well. For even more kid friendly fun, serve with some honey mustard.
[…] Not much. ( At least while the kids are still awake) Fresh breadcrumbs are a must for baked and breaded chicken. Dry crumbs just aren’t the same. I like to keep the heels of my loaf bread in the freezer […]
