I’ve shared with you a few of the “sweet” tasting foods and it’s time to share something from the savory department.
I’m an advocate of home made and freezing over buying something from the frozen section at the grocery store. How can “fresh” meat last for 2 years? Doesn’t make sense to me. PRESERVATIVES!!! If I can avoid it then I will.
Not to say I don’t indulge one in a while but when it comes to the kids I’d rather not.
My baked recipe uses fresh chicken breasts that I prepare and freeze for up to 6 months and tastes fabulous, if I may say so myself. The added health perk is I don’t fry I bake them and they turn out just as crispy.
Preheat oven 175 degrees C (350 degrees F)
Coat each strip of chicken in the flour followed by dipping in the egg then coating in the breadcrumbs.
Place on a cookie sheet.
If you intend to freeze place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes until the breadcrumbs holds, remove from cookie sheet and place in an airtight container place aluminum foil in between layers, return to freezer. Stores up to 6 months.
Melt butter in microwave.
Pour melted butter on each strip. bake in the oven for 15 minutes, turn each strip and bake for additional 5 minutes.
The same baking method is used for frozen strips but add an additional 10 minutes to the baking.
This recipe is great because you can make a really big batch and freeze. Useful for lunch box, birthday party menu, play dates and quick dinners.
