We had some chicken breasts in the fridge tonight that needed to be cooked or tossed, so I “flipped” through Dinner: A Love Story blog and found this one:
The kid actually asked for seconds, even without any ketchup or other dipping sauce (other than the sauce that was part of the recipe). And the husband said it didn’t have any of the “tackiness” that my breaded chicken sometimes has – probably because it wasn’t breaded! No flour is needed, or even egg white – the cornmeal is so fine it just sticks to the chicken. I pounded the chicken a lot before I dredged it, so it was thin and juicy with a crisp coating. The sauce was good too – an interesting twist, as it wouldn’t have been what I would have expected. Next time I’ll cook some rice to serve with it, but this time I just did sauteed spinach on the side, and it felt like a nice, somewhat light meal (except you cook the chicken in oil – but next time hopefully I’ll have more olive oil and I’ll use that to increase the flavor and health factor).
