Tasty Tuesday And An Afternoon Of Playdoh

Well its Tasty Tuesday again, time for me to share another recipe. This recipe I found in a book and it has all the things that my girls just love, its easy and it looked good. Today we are talking about TWO-STEP CRUNCHY CHICKEN STRIPS
You will need
Nonstick cooking spray
2 1/2 cups of crushed cheddar goldfish crackers
2/3 cup bottled buttermilk ranch dressing or regular ranch dressing works as well
1 lb chicken breast tenderloins

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1 baking pan with foil and spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Place crushed crackers in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish place ranch dressing. Dip chicken tenderloins into the ranch dressing, allow excess to drip off, drip into crushed cracker crumbs to coat. (see picture below) Yes this part can be kinda messy. Arrange chicken in prepared pan.
3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. If you want you can serve with additional ranch dressing for dipping.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.

There is an even quicker version of using 10 oz package of cooked refrigerated chicken breast strips instead of chicken breast tenderloins. Prepare as above, except bake only 5 to 8 minutes or until heated through.

My girls are always asking me to make this chicken. The chicken comes out nice and moist and the crunchy goldfish are a fun addition. We try to get the cheesiest goldfish flavour to enhance the flavour. You could try other goldfish cracker flavours and see how they turn out.

I'd love to hear if anyone tried this and what they thought. Did anyone try the Mango Smoothie from last week? If so, how was it?

Last week while Megan was away Victoria and I spent the afternoon playing with Playdoh. That is a kid activity that adults can never resist saying no to. Doesnt that Playdoh smell just take you back? We got out all our Playdoh and all the little tools we have collected for such an activity. We are always looking for things that could be useful tools for Playdoh. We find alot in second hand stores. We also like to use cookie cutters because you can make all sorts of fun shapes. Victoria spent her time on one big project. It has all types of things she likes, pumpkins, bats, Guitar Hero, she loves to write her name and she was missing her big sister so there is a little message to Megan there as well. We had lots of fun.

I made lots of little things that got scrumpled up and created into other thngs but these are the things that I took pictures of. My monster face and my bears. Sorry about the bear picture being sideways. It just wouldnt cooperate with me today.
