Friday Food Day

Here is one of my tried and true. A recipe that I reach for when comfort food is in order or I just want a different twist from grilled chicken. It has many variations, making it the perfect choice for company or a family meal.

Oh...my recipe posts will never have pictures. I think my pictures of food are gross and I rarely take time to snap pics when I'm cooking. With that said- on with the food!


*Crispy Chicken*

1 1/2 cups Rice Crispies, crushed
2 Tbs. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp all purpose seasoning of your choice
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning or paprika
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb)

In a shallow bowl, combine cereal, flour, and seasonings. Place butter in another bowl. Dip chicken in butter, then into cereal mixture. Place in a greased baking pan. Drizzle with remaining butter. Bake, uncovered, @ 400 for 20-25 minutes. About 4 servings.


Variations:
1.I've used corn flakes instead of rice crispies
2. Tabasco sauce will liven it up for the spicy folks
3. I never measure the seasonings; just dump in to taste
4. Add 1/4 tsp of tried thyme for a differend flavor
5. The amount of butter is a little slim in the original recipe. I usually use 1/2 cup.

That sounds good. I have never used Rice Crispies before but I may just have to try it. I usually dredge my chicken in crushed pecans or Doritos.
