Journey With Cookbooks #10

So I lied when I said I would be starting the other Ree Drummond cookbook. I needed to find a recipe for 4lbs of chuck roast…so I dove into this one instead!!

I thought a country styled cookbook would have plenty of meat recipes…I was correct!

However this blog post is not about the chuck roast. It had to marinate for 24hrs, so I decided to make chicken nuggets from the same cookbook.

Frying in peanut oil again!

You should know. After getting the chuck roast ready I decided upon a crazy idea…I have been in the kitchen since 11:45am…it is currently 4:40pm. I cleaned the refrigerator…

So clean!!! 😍

I thought I would have a break to sit down after my madness of cleaning…nope. Dinner here I come!

All my ingredients are ready.

I forgot I needed to defrost the chicken; so that I could put it in the brine concoction. It had to sit in the fridge for 30min….

Sitting for the short 30min…🤤
Breading of the chicken!!

It was actually an easy process. I was quite surprised how easy. It was a nice change for starting a new cookbook.

It’s coming along!!
Round 2 of breading…Well…

When the recipe tells you to cut even pieces it’s actually for a reason. Because then the piece cook the same amount of time. I had to cook the big pieces together, and cook them a little longer.

But it still looks delicious!!
Done!

Since I was using a pot and not a dutch oven I had to do a few more rounds. Try four more rounds…

The fries were from another dinner.

Keeping it healthy…we had a salad!

Again this recipe does not seem so exciting but it actually was! I fried chicken and it came out done and still moist…I have become a master at frying…at least in my household!

The hubby and Elizabeth both said yum yum when I served them.

The fries, sadly, did not survive to this dinner, they were hard and were kind of chewy, but Elizabeth still ate them all off her plate…😳

Look Like Photo: 10! I think because I did not use the vegetable oil it looks a bit different in color but overall…10!! 😎

Taste: Hubby 10! Elizabeth 10! Me 10! So delicious. Will definitely be making this again. And might use the temp, time, and breading for other various chicken recipes!!

Easiness: I give it a solid 9. One point off of perfect because I had to do several extra rounds. But the rounds were only 3-4min long. So we are talking an extra 12-16min. That’s why I give it a 9!!

My next cooking post will be about the chuck roast recipe!! It was delicious as well!!

Ooooooooooooo 😯 Big hunk of yes please!!!
