DINNER'S READY!

I am not confident enough to share my home cooked recipes with the world, but this time, I couldn't resist sharing a picture of my fried chicken that I made recently.

It's one of those times when the flavor was just right on, and the coating was light, yet crispy. Trust me when I say that I don't have any secret seasonings. Just good ole' salt & pepper!

All I use is egg, flour, salt, pepper, and oil for frying.

This was not all the chicken I made. These are the pieces that were left over after everyone ate. I flattened (is that the right word?) the boneless chicken breasts so they would cook alot faster. For the sides, we had white rice & green salad. I also made a potato salad as well.

Mmm..mmmm!

Fried to perfection! Well, perfect enough for me.

I tried to get all fancy with my rice presentation! I shaped them in a cup and seasoned it with fresh ground pepper. I cut up the chicken and drizzled soy sauce over everything.

I'm happy to say that my family was very pleased, and that makes me happy!

And I have to add that my daughter wants me to prepare her rice like that everyday! LOL

That chicken looks absolutely scrummy! I love the soy sauce on rice. My two love soy sauce on rice and chicken and noodles. Emma would live on egg noodles if I let her!!!

I want that for breakfast - love how you presented the rice. Maybe my kids would eat their rice if it looked like that.

Parsley said...

Guess it just depends on one's background. I'd put some mashed potatoes on the side and some think white gravy. OHH...YUM!

Kim said...

Carin said...

Look at you go, that's awesome! I really need to get better at cooking. With sports it's tough. It's even tougher with a husband who is gone. It's rough to know I have to do ALL of it. So glad you are taking care of your family that way!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

YUM! I don't usually fry at home because it is so messy...but your yummy chicken is making me want to fry some up at home now!

Yummy!!! How do you get the rice in those perfect circles? I would love that. We eat rice like crazy over here and sometimes it gets mixed in with a meal that maybe it shouldn't LOL.

The chicken looks great!

My pregnant mouth is watering! That looks so delicious! I've only ever made fried chicken once and while I remember it being good, I also remember making a huge mess in my kitchen! I think you should share more of your recipes...c'mon can't you hear everyone chanting, "More, more, more!"
