Last weeks menu went great. Hubby is getting involved in the process adding one of his favorite meals each week. It really helps to have him involved...it kind of lightens the blow when I try some crazy recipe out!
The recipe he choice for this past week was chicken and peaches. A recipe that I had never made before.
This recipe was pretty simple. You can use whatever kind of chicken you would like. I used the chicken legs. First mix together flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, salt and pepper (you can add whatever spices you like). Take the chicken and dip it into evaporated milk then dip in flour mixture. Well you are dipping and coating the chicken. Have oven preheating to 350. In the oven place your dish which you will put the chicken into (you want to make sure that it all lays flat in one layer) and add about 1/2 cup of margarine. When you finish coating the chicken bake it for 20 minutes on one side, flip and bake for another 20 minutes. After the 40 minutes drain off all grease and add peaches (you don't want to add the juice because you want the chicken to be crispy.) Bake for another 20 minutes in 400 oven.
I served this delicious chicken with long grain rice and a nice salad. One thing I love to do with salad is I wash a lot of lettuce at once. Then I use things that don't go bad in a salad if we don't eat the whole thing. Stuff like peppers and carrots. The salad bowl goes in the center of the table and all around it are all my lovely reused glass jars that have salad toppings in them. Things like raisins, craisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, soy nuts and of course dressings. Other things I like to put out are shredded cheese and tomato slices. This is a great "salad bar" for our family and if we don't eat the salad then it can go in the fridge and be used for lunches or the next nights supper.
