Mmmm Mmmm Good

Blogging can be addictive. I can't wait to meet more people on line. I think this could be fun. I'm very proud I was able to post a picture of Bryan and I. That is quite a technical achievement for me. I'm learning.

Last night I tried a new chicken recipe for dinner and it was delicious. It was in Pampered Chef's "29 Minutes to Dinner" And, it truly only took about 29 minutes. Here's the recipe.

Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites
1 lb chicken tenders
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
1 egg white
6 cups whole-grain chips
1/4 tsp paprika
Vegetable Oil

Cut chicken into 1 1/2in pieces. Whisk together 1 tbsp of the dressing mix and egg white. Crush chips in resealable plastic bag; add remaining dressing mix and paprika and shake well.

Add chicken to egg white mixture; mix well to coat. Add half of the coated chicken to crumb mixture; shake to coat with crumbs and arranged in a single layer on rectangle stone or cooking sheet. Repeat with remaining coated chicken and crumbs.

Spray chicken generously with oil. Bake 14-16 minute or until chicken is golden brown and centers are no longer pink. Remove from oven.

I served this with roasted garlic potatoes and mixed vegetables. Bryan loved in .
I just now realized I should have taken a picture so you could see the outcome. Sorry!

I am really enjoying cooking for my man. When I worked at the mortgage company, I had more responsibilities and worked longer hours. I would cook, but it would always be something fast, frozen, and/or simple. Now I'm enjoying trying new recipes. It brings me great satisfaction. Plus, it helps with the eating out budget.

If anyone knows of some great crock pot recipes, please pass them onto me.

Hey Julie!
Welcome to blogging! You'll get really addicted very quickly!!!!
Waiting for a baby is really tough. We have been trying for a little over 2 years and lately it's been really hard - but I know God will be faithful to bring us a child. And I know that's true for you too!
I hope you will come back and visit me often!!! And I'll do the same!

Hi! I too found your blog through Kelly's and wanted to stop in. Blogging is so fun! You'll love it! This recipe sounds so good! I'm going to try it. I love recipes! What kind of crockpot recipes are you looking for? I have some good ground beef ones if you are interested. :)

Hey! I got your comment! You are doing fine, girl. I have no idea how to cook sirloin tips, but I can give you some good ground beef recipes. Also, from my blog there is a recipe link on the side that will take you to my friend Angela's recipe blog. Lots of good stuff on there.
Just email me your email address and I will send you some recipes and tell you more about PEP:

Hi, Julie! Found your blog through Candy's. Blogging is addictive and fun. I love visiting with people in different places and sharing in their day to day activities!!
The only thing I use my crock pot for is roast!! I'll have to be on the look out for more crock pot recipes too.

Angela said...

Hi Julie! Mmmm...your recipe looks good. Thanks for sharing and I WILL try it. Anything that uses the ranch dressing mix is great so I know this will be good (and I can probably get my kids to eat it, too). What kind of whole-grain chips did you use?

Oh, and the blogging is addictive...but fun!

Hi!! Just wanted to stop by and check out your new blog. My mom goes to church with you and sent me the link.

Your blog looks great and It was a pretty big deal for me to figure out my blog too. I have learned a lot by having a blog. And yes it's addicting.

I am having a giveaway on my blog that ends today. So stop by and sign up. You can also follow the link in the post to register for other things as well.

I have seen a blog that has a Crockpot Recipe Swap weekly. I'll try to see if I can find it again. I would be a great way for you to connect with other bloggers.

Sorry, I forgot to add that I posted a crockpot recipe we really enjoyed on August 22 (so look in the Archives on my side bar)

Also the last line of my previous comment should have read. "It would be a good way for you to connect..."
