One of the worst things for me is not being able to get into my kitchen and cook.
One week of moving, one week of yucky take out food. I have burgers and fries coming out my ears and do NOT want to see another greasy meal for a very long time.
Tonight, I finally got to finish getting my kitchen organized and packed and the first thing I did was put together a quick homemade meal. Even my kiddos licked their lips and declared it the best meal they've had in a week.
It's nothing special, nothing difficult to prepare, just a quick meal using pantry staples but it's comforting. The house may be a shambles, there may be boxes covering every inch of the floors, but our tummies are full with home cooked food and THAT is better than anything else.
BTW, I got this recipe many years ago and can't even remember where from but it's on our list of favorites :)
Crispy Onion Chicken
* 1/2 cup butter, melted
* 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 teaspoon ground mustard
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 1 can (6 ounces) cheddar or original french-fried onions, crushed
* 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, add 1/2 cup-fried onions. Dip chicken in the butter mixture, then coat with onions.
Place in a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Top with remaining onions; drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.
