Since both of us now have our own kitchen to cook in, we have been trying to think outside the box and step away from cooking the same 'ol dinners night after night. We both wanted to try new recipes, so we came up with New Recipe night. We go through recipes until we discover something we would like to try. Last weeks new recipe night was a Greek dish called Chicken Souvlaki which is a spiced chicken cubed and put onto a skewer to make into a ka-bob. After some time on the grill, we added a side salad to the meal and voted it a winner, we will make it again.
This weeks New Recipe night was also a chicken dish but more on the Italian side. This week we made Crunchy Garlic Chicken. This was an easy recipe using common ingredients that most people have in their house. The garlic breading was formed using a food processor crushed saltine crackers, butter, garlic, Parsley (we substituted with Italian seasoning) and a pinch of salt and pepper. The chicken was coated in all purpose flour and dipped in egg before being breaded with the cracker mix. We baked the chicken in the oven at 475 for about 15 minutes. I chopped up my chicken and added it to a salad but it was also good by itself. Once again a recipe voted a winner and will be made again.
