That Tastes Like Chicken!

Tastes Like What?!

I made my mom's cornflake
 baked chicken last night


I know this is going to sound weird
but it was too moist.
God Bless my dear mother 
but she would cook everything
 to an inch of it's life.
and I liked it.

Her chicken was like Clark Bars



It reminded me of wood
and it was good.


another Clark I like


 It was super easy to make.

I spared you the photos, 
as I have said before...
raw chicken never looks good.
I took the skin off before I coated it
I'm not into skin.

I served it with a very simple 
arugula salad
dressed with lemon juice
a little olive oil 
salt and pep.

I like the tart salad
 with the sweet and greeeezy chicken


Actually, it's not so greasy,
I sprayed some Pam on it
before I stuck it in the oven 
to crisp things up a bit.
I eliminated the melted butter.


a Pam I like


I served the whole shebang up
 on a tin pie plate
lined with parchment,
easy clean up and nice presentation.
Sitting down to dinner last night
my husband said...
"Wow! that looks so professional!"
I took it as a compliment,
I am a professional, 
professional prop stylist 
and was a food stylist.

He's sweet 
and so is this chicken! 
especially when served with extra salt,
a hot biscuit
 and honey on the side.

If it is too moist for your taste 
upon first presentation,
you could do like I did.
I barely ate any of mine last night
but put it back in the oven
 and cooked it some more.
Today for lunch I had a piece.
A twice cooked and refrigerated piece.
Now this was like home.



Dry and crunchy.

Just like Momma used to make.

close as I could find to my mom's:

Sounds fabulous and always love the fun banter!

Sounds wonderful. I love “fried” chicken --even baked “fried” any way you make it. I bet it is so good with the cornflakes. Love the parchment paper idea-I’m definitely going to borrow that one--easy clean up too-wow :)
