2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Chicken Nuggets

The infamous chicken nuggets. The ones we all remember from childhood. The ones in the the box that comes with a toy. Easy to dip and fun to share. We always have a box of the store bought kind in the freezer for my boyfriend but they clearly are not gluten free. I wanted to make some that I could enjoy. This is a kid pleaser for sure.

Ingredients –
2 Skinless and Boneless chicken breast
1 Cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1 Tbs Onion Powder
1 Tbs Garlic Powder
2 tsps Salt
2 tsps Pepper

First place bead crumbs in a food processor with spices and half the sat and pepper. Blend it well and place on a plate. Next, puree chicken breast in food processor to form a paste along with the other half of the salt, pepper and 1 Tbs of the bread crumb mixture. For 1 inch balls with the paste. Coat each ball with rice flour, then dip in egg and finally in the bread crumb mixture. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Press each ball down half way to form the tradition nugget share. Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes but check frequently. If you would like to freeze, cook for 5 minutes and once cooled place in an ziplock bag. Then just remove frozen and cook an additional 8-10 minutes. Serve with some homemade ketchup or fresh honey.
