Fried Chicken Recipe

I love fried chicken tenders, but they are expensive to buy at the grocery store. I decided to try and make a recipe for at home. It is super crispy and delicious. 

Fried Chicken Tenders

  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • oil for frying
Now cut up the chicken breasts into strips or cubes and set it aside. 

Now we are going to set up a breading station. You will need three separate dishes. In dish one crack the two eggs and take a fork to beat them up to make an egg wash. 

In the second dish dump the flour and season it with pepper. 

In the third and final dish add the crushed Ritz crackers and Parmesan cheese.

Place about 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat. 

Now we need to bread the chicken. First roll it in the flour, then put it in the egg and last in the cracker crumbs. Continue until all chicken is breaded. 

Test your oil by putting a little flour in it. If the oil sizzles then it is ready for the chicken. Place the chicken in the pan and fry until golden brown on each side. It will be about 4-5 minutes on each side.

When both sides are browned, place the chicken on a paper towels to drain any excess oil and season with a little salt.


Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.

We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 

The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
