This recipe is too good not to share. Although I have reduced the amount of meat I am eating, Miss S and the Hubz have not so I knew I had to make this for them. And everyone has got to love fried food – but who really loves the deep fryer? The splatter messes, the lingering smell and the oil that has been used a few too many times…no thanks!
That said I will have to experiment making this vegetarian. Maybe fried cauliflower – ah yes, that would make it a pakora :P
So what’s the trick to getting that crispy fried coating – corn flakes!
This is what you need:
Ziplock bag + rolling pin
S & P
Dill (or other herb of choice – optional!)
Chicken breasts (I usually slice them length wise)
This is what you do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Clean and slices your chicken, set aside
Using a ziplock filled with cornflakes, crush the cornflakes. Transfer to a bowl
Add S & P, garlic powder and herb of your choice to the bowl
Melt butter in the microwave (2+ tbls)
Add Salt, galic powder to the melted butter and mix well.
Set up your assembly line: chicken ready to be coated, melted butter mixture, cornflakes mixture and a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Dip the chicken into the melted butter mixture being sure to coat both sides well, then cover the chicken with the cornflakes making sure to cover all areas of the chicken breast then place on lined baking sheet.
Complete above step for all remaining chicken pieces
Pour any remaining butter on all the pieces and fill in any missed places on the chicken with the cornflakes
Bake 25-30 min. Check centre of chicken is cooked before removing from oven.
Okay really this post should also include “or lack there of” in the title. As mentioned, my attempt to make bread have been futile. That said – I am learning a ton!

I really thought this goal-setting activity would be easier than it’s turning out to be. Mainly because I’ve watched my mom make roti my entire life. However the bread I want to make is actually not the same type of bread as roti. I have learned that I want to make bread that rises! I’ve learned that sometimes you need a bread maker (I don’t have one) and you almost always need a rising agent (yeast).
So far there has been a lot of reading and research and no actual baking. With that in mind I’ve decided to make my bread making goals more specific (and possibly more complex for my non bread making self).
Okay after all of that I am committing to bake the follow breads:
As the weather is starting to warm and get spectacular outside – I almost forgot that I had a few last #Vday pix to share.
This year I got SPOILED by the hubz when he had these flowers delivered to me (I was #WFH). We then enjoyed our annual valentine’s dinner of fried chicken, bisquits and gravy with mash. I was a happy laaaadddyyy :P
The weekend prior I decided to do a valentine’s breakfast for my #fambam. Heart shaped pancakes, heart shape strawberries, whip cream and some blueberries (the hubz fav).
AAaaannnnndd I promise that is ALL for all of our vday celebrations this year :) #IPromise!!
