Happy New Year’s Eve

Posted on

I hope you are enjoying your last evening of 2011. I’m rocking out to a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory with an iced mocha and some Harry & David’s truffles. Hey, I’m edgy. Plus, I have to work in the morning.

In other news, tonight’s dinner was chicken strips. Note: I don’t fry ANYTHING. It splatters all over my kitchen and smells. Also, I’ve heard it is unhealthy. So, when I discovered a recipe that said chicken strips in the oven I was pretty excited. Note 2: When the recipe says use a 9×11 pan use a 9×11 pan. Mine was in the dishwasher so I just used a casserole dish. The chicken was too crowded and my breading got soggy and didn’t stick to the chicken. My picture of my chicken strips is pretty sad. Needless to say, it will not be featured in National Geographic anytime soon.

Baked Chicken Strips

Place thawed chicken breast strips in a bowl of milk (I used buttermilk). Let soak for 20-30 min.

Mix in a Gallon Size Ziploc:
  • 1 cup flour
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • mustard, ground
  • thyme
  • basil
  • oregano
  • ginger
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut 1/2 stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9×13 pan. Melt butter in pre-heated oven.
Spread melted butter around the bottom of the pan.
Shake excess milk off of chicken and completely coat each piece with the seasoning mix. Just throw the chicken in a gallon Ziploc bag and shake it up.
Place each piece of chicken in the pan. Cook for 20 min. Turn each piece of chicken and continue cooking for 20 more minutes, or until cooked through.

About Meg

I stress-bake, a lot. When I'm not doing that I'm an Episcopal priest, wife, and mom. Have a recipe that just might lower my blood pressure or at least make my house smell good? I'd love to try it!
