Dinner Idea

Since I love and admire you all, I know I would like to know when you find a good recipe/idea/or whatever. So I thought we could expand our challenge blog to include all of the other good things we find in life. For example, we had a great dinner last night, so here it is!

Crispy Parmesan Chicken

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg white
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup cornflake crumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
pinch each salt and pepper

  • Preheat over to 400. Cut chicken crosswise into 1/4" thick strips.
  • In a shallow dish, whisk together egg white and 2 tsp water. In another dish, stur together parmesan cheese, cornflake crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Dip each chicken strip into egg white mixture, roll in crumb mixture and place on greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crispy golden and no longer pink inside.
Serve with...

Vegetable Couscous

2 med. carrots diced
1/2 cup diced celery
1 med. onion diced (I used less)
1/4 cup julienned (or diced) red pepper
1/4 cup julienned (or diced) yellow pepper
2 tbsp canola oil (I used less than half of that)

1 med. zucchini diced
3 tsp dried basil leaves (not ground)
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Dash Tobasco sauce

1 cup uncooked couscous
1 1/2 cups chicken broth

  • In a large skillet, heat oil then saute the carrots, celery, onion and peppers 6-8 minutes or until tender crisp.
  • Add the next five ingredients. Mix well and heat.
  • Stir in couscous.
  • Add broth and bring to a boil.
  • Cover and remover from heat. Let stand 5-8 minutes.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
We had steamed asparagus with it and it was delicious! Elysse ate everything! Let me know if you like it.

  1. Sounds good I am always looking for good Couscous recipes. I also like the ideas of using cornflakes instead of bread crumbs
