Homemade Kid Food

Wow!!!  Has the wind blown today.  I have been gritting my teeth all day now.  Suppose to calm down about 9 or so tonite.  Sure hope so.   But even with all the wind I managed to get the back yard….all but the bocce court…mowed.

So now bothe the front and the back are clean, neat and tidy.  Now come on rain…or hurry up and fill the ditch.

Decided to try chicken tenders tonite.  Girlie loves them and they would work just great for MIL, who was working today and who knows when she would be home. 

CHICKEN TENDERS

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast..or do it yourself and save a buck

1 cup flour

3 beaten eggs

2 cups panko..Japanese bread crumbs

1 tsp lemon pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp Penzeys Black and Red Sprinkle

Slice chicken into strips.  If partially frozen easier to cut.  Then set up breading station with 3 pie plates.  Flour in one, beaten eggs in two and panko with spices in the last.  Flour, eggs and bread each strip.

Melt chocolate over hot water in a double boiler.  Add milk and whisk until smooth.  Remove from heat and cool.  Whisk eggs until light and fluffy, then add sugar slowly until thick.  Add cream, vanilla and salt and whisk.  Pour chocolate mixture in and whisk to blend.  Chill.  Follow your ice cream makers instructions from there.
