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!!
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.
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…
I thought I would have a break to sit down after my madness of cleaning…nope. Dinner here I come!
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….
It was actually an easy process. I was quite surprised how easy. It was a nice change for starting a new cookbook.
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.
Since I was using a pot and not a dutch oven I had to do a few more rounds. Try four more rounds…
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!!
