So. It’s 4:30 pm and I forgot to take out something for dinner…again. I swear at times I can be THE MOST SCATTERBRAINED Momma on the planet. I know that I need to feed my family, and one would think after 10 years of parenting I would have this whole dinner thing down pat by now.
I still have days where I slip up.
That was the case one day last week. All of us were home, but no one thought about dinner. I was teetering on the brink of calling for take out…but I was strong… NO! No take out! I will put dinner on the table and it will be delicious!
And I did just that!
It was super simple.
I grabbed some chicken breast, and some Shake n’Bake. Pulled out my deep fryer and started heating it up. I mean, frozen chicken in the oven would take FOREVER! And my family was already wondering where dinner was.
So, while still frozen, I cubed the chicken breast and set it aside. I pulled open my box of Shake n’Bake and poured the contents of the pouch into the bag. When my deep fryer was good and hot I began breading the chicken chunks.
Since my deep fryer isn’t huge, I did about 10-12 chicken balls at a time. I cooked them for four minutes, than removed them from the hot oil and placed them on a paper towel covered plate, to soak up any excess oil.
When I was done pre-cooking all of the chicken balls, I put them all in the deep fryer for one final round…but just for about 90 seconds.
Then I put them in a serving dish, with my favorite dipping sauce.
Serve with asian style noodles and/or rice. and a veggie stir fry and you’ve got home cooked chinese food! Serve them alone with dip as delicious appetizers!
