Healthy Home Cookin’ Restaurant Style! October 13, 2011

Posted by doinglaundryinheels in Food/Dining, The SK Plan.

Sometimes you just feel like a little restaurant, home style flare without the 20 minute drive and tip+tax budgeting. In which case, I’ve recently found two tastey solutions that are quick, easy, YUMMY!, and can last you for more than just one meal.

Old School Cornflake Chicken Tenders…if you don’t like these, you need to seek therapy!
What you’ll need:

  • Skinless chicken thighs (or you can find ‘chicken tenders’)
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • Approx. 2 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional but highly recommended!)

Set oven to 400 degrees, while it’s pre-heating rinse the chicken and pat dry. In one bowl mix cornflakes, oil, cayenne and a teaspoon of salt. In another bowl, mix 1 egg with 1 tablespoon water.
Before dipping the chicken, salt and pepper both sides generously. Taking one piece at a time, dip the chicken into the egg mixture, shake of excess and then coat with cornflake mixture. Press the cornflakes into the chicken to help them adhere, make sure it’s covered. Place chicken into a small ceramic baking sheet or rimmed baking sheet. Right before you place them in the oven, sprinkle any extra cornflakes left on top to fully coat those puppies! Bake for 30 min, sprinkle with salt and pepper or any spice for taste!
An easy honey mustard mix to enjoy with your newly baked tenders: mix honey, Dijon mustard and a bit of mayonnaise to taste! Dip away!

While the above object may remind you junk food galore, it’s actual a pretty healthy meal! Add the salad below and you’ve got lunch or dinner for a few days!

1 -2- 3 salad!
Buy a packages arugula or romaine mix from the store, depending on your taste. Throw salad mix in a dish, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, add a little vinegar, oil, lemon juice and pepper and finish off with fruit of choice (i.e. strawberries, melon or green apples!) ….it’ll taste like you paid $18 for it!
