Dill Pickle Faux-Fried Chicken


I love looking at the Cooking for your Family board over at Babycenter. They have a recipe review thread where everyone reviews the recipes they made. It's a great way to find new ideas. Well, one lady posted that she had made this recipe for Dill Pickle Faux-Fried Chicken which is from A Good Appetite. I was really happy with this recipe! The kids loved it! Definitely something different to do with chicken and a good way to use up that pickle juice.

I did the recipe a bit different but not much. For the original recipe, click on the link above. Here's what I did....

Dill Pickle Faux-Fried Chicken

2-4 cups of pickle juice
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cups of Pepperidge Farms Herb Seasoned Stuffing mix
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese (you could use more or less if you wanted)
2 eggs

Marinate chicken breasts for at least 2 hours (I did all day) in the pickle juice.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet lined with foil and then place a greased cooling rack on top of the foil. Remove chicken from the marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Dry chicken and set aside. In a pie plate or other dish, crack two eggs and mix well. In another dish, add the stuffing mix and cheese. Mix well. Dredge chicken in the egg and then into the dry mix and place on the cooling rack/cookie sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Flip over halfway through cooking to crisp both sides.

I served with mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. Very delicious!

I do want to add that you could taste the pickle taste in the chicken. Not in a bad way but in a different, good way. However, if you're not a fan of pickles you may not enjoy this recipe. If you didn't marinate it as long as I did it might not take on a strong flavor though. I let mine marinate all day.

Happy eating!

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
