My Mom started making this a few years ago. It's very simple and delicious! It's a different twist on the typical fried chicken:-)

Panko Bread Crumbs
3 eggs
garlic powder
1 cucumber thinly sliced
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup coconut oil

Slice cucumber and red onion very thin, put in bowl with red wine vinegar, cover, put in fridge until it's time to eat. (the longer this sits the better it is)
Buy thinly cut chicken breasts or pound them thin yourself. Pat each breast in flour first, then egg, then bread crumbs. I season the bread crumbs with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder. Heat coconut oil to med-high and fry
each breast until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
Serve the cucumber/onion mixture on top of chicken. ENJOY!!!!

Iced Coffee

It's getting HOT here in Texas, so I needed to figure out how to make iced coffee without spending $4 per cup at Starbucks. I found this recipe and tried it out.It's delicious and easy! I am going to by some flavored syrup so I can have more options too:-)

1 cup ground coffee
1 (1 quart mason jar)
paper towels

Place ground coffee in mason jar, fill with cold water. Stir well until all grounds are wet. Cover and let sit overnight. In the morning place strainer over large bowl and add 2 paper towels to the strainer. Slowly strain concentrate coffee into bowl and then into another jar or whatever you are going to store it in.

To make the iced coffee: The recipe called for equal parts concentrate/milk.....but that is pretty strong. Play with it until you find the flavor you like. I put a little less than half concentrate - the rest milk - filled with iced - added 2 tablespoons of sugar and it's perfect for me:-)

You can keep this concentrate in the fridge for up to 3 weeks:-)

Mississippi Roast (Crock Pot)

A girl I work with told me about this recipe and she went on about it so much I just had to try it. It is REALLY easy and only a few ingredients. It doesn't get much better than that!

Chuck Roast (4-6 pounds)
1 stick of butter
6-7 banana peppers (I bought a jar of them)
1 package of ranch dressing (powder)
1 package of Au Jus (powder)

Put roast in crock pot, sprinkle the ranch and au jus on top. Place stick of butter on top and put 6-7 banana peppers around the butter. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours (or high 4-5 hours). DON'T ADD WATER!!!! Trust me....just let it do it's thing and you will be glad you did:-)

It's DELICIOUS!!! Great with mashed potatoes and a veggie....or you can make sandwiches with the meat.....another good idea would be tacos...yummy! This is a new crock pot recipe that will stay in my kitchen for years to come:-)

FYI: This is a picture I pulled off the internet because I haven't taken one....but will post my own pics next time I make it:-)

Baked Bacon

I knew that it was possible to bake bacon, but never did it because I didn't think it would be as good as fried bacon. My Mama was baking her bacon while I was at her home in Utah and it was delicious!! I have started baking my bacon and will never go back to frying again! It's easy, yummy and MESS FREE!!!

Line a baking sheet with foil and place bacon on sheet. Bake in 350-375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the bacon is crisp to your liking. Remove bacon and transfer to paper towel to drain. Let the foil cool, then crumble it up and trash it! DONE!!! No messy grease to clean up off the stove anymore...YAY!!!!!!!!

Chicken Tenders

These are so crunchy and delicious!!!

Chicken Breasts ( however many you need) 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 pepper 1 tsp lawrys seasoning 4 eggs 1 cup panko bread crumbs 1 cup flour
Directions: In three separate bowls, put flour, panko bread crumbs and eggs. Add some garlic powder, salt, pepper and lawrys seasoning to the panko bread crumbs and mix up. Whisk the eggs a little. Cut the chicken breasts into strips. Each breast usually makes three strips. Dredge each chicken strip into the flour first, then the eggs, then the panko bread crumbs and fry them in hot oil ( I use crisco) Make sure its not too hot or they will burn. I had my burner on 6 the whole time and it was perfect. Brown them on each side for about 4 minutes (or until they are brown) and flip over and do the same on the other side. Pull out and drain on paper towel (salt them again just a little) then serve:-)
