Scrumptous Crispy Chicken Recipe!

Another school year is quickly ending. Final exams are approaching, and it is time to finally do everything that I had been putting off all semester. After a long week of endless hours in the library, the last thing I wanted to do was get dolled-up and go out to a restaurant. Friday was spent lounging on the couch, watching the Food Network, and attempting to both recover from the previous week and prepare for the next. By about 6 p.m., I think I had seen just about every Food Network star doing what they do best—cook. It was ideal. I had no energy to dine out, but after watching hours and hours of cooking, I had more than a few ideas for a delicious meal!

The recipe is extremely basic and easy. The entire meal only takes about 30 minutes to make, complete with an appetizer.

Ingredients: Boneless/skinless chicken tenders
All purpose flour
Garlic & herb seasonings
Plain potato chips
*Optional: Grand’s Flaky biscuits

1. Preheat oven to 350°

2. Melt 1/2 stick of butter, pour into bowl
3. Combine 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of seasonings into large serving dish
4. Crush potato chips into a separate serving dish (fun for kids and boyfriends!)

*For the above ingredients, you will only need enough to cover the chicken tenders, so you are welcome to eyeball the amounts. Also, make sure to keep them in separate dishes.

5. Take chicken tenders and dip them first in the flour
6. Next in the melted butter
7. Last, completely cover the tenders with crushed potato chips8. Place the tenders into the oven on an un-greased cooking sheet for 20 minutes, or until
the chips are golden brown.
*If you are also making the biscuits, place them in the oven with the chicken.

1. Preheat a griddle, with the burners on high.
2. Wash the asparagus and lightly coat it with olive oil or butter
3. Place the asparagus horizontally on the griddle and season them with garlic salt
4. Cook time is about 8 minutes, 4 minutes on each side

Well you are basically done! Just place the asparagus on a plate and top it with fresh Parmesan cheese. Grab the chicken and biscuits out of the oven, and you have yourself an amazing and quick dinner. Next time you don’t feel like dealing with the masses and would rather have dinner alone or spend some time at home with a loved one, try out this recipe!

Hope you love it!
