Tonight's dinner was SUPER good.
Just make your favorite chicken nugget recipe & make sure you cut your chicken into finger like shapes. Here is our favorite nugget recipe (which happens to be the Chic-Fil-A recipe which is amazing!)
1.5 pounds chicken cut into nuggets or slices
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2.5 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon salt
Mix the egg & milk in a bowl & add chicken pieces. Let sit for 5 minutes. Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl. Heat oil. Dip wet chicken into dry ingredient mixture, back into the egg mixture, & once again in the dry mixture. Place into hot oil & fry until brown & cooked through.
(FYI, we have 8 in our family & we triple this recipe to feed us all. Every last piece gets eaten.)
Spider Web Mashed Potato Casserole:
Make mashed potatoes. . . . I leave the skins on & add bacon, green oniobns, butter, & cheese, then I topped it with sour cream or ranch in the shape of a spider web. Mine wasn't very pretty this time around, but that's alright. It tasted good.
Caramel Apple Trifle:
3 Tablespoons butter
4 cups chopped/peeled tart apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon apple pie spice divided
8 oz cream cheese
1 jar caramel ice cream topping, divided
12 oz cool whip
2 loave pound cake, cut into 1 inch cubes
Melt butter over medium heat. Stir in apples, walnuts, brown sugar, & 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice. Cook & stir for 10 minutes or until the apples are tender.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy. Beat in 1/2 cup caramel topping & remaining apple pie spice. Fold in 2 cups of cool whip.
In a trifle bowl layer 1/3 of the cake cubes, cream cheese mixture, & the apple mixture. Repeat 2 more times. Garnish with cool whip, caramel topping, & apple pie spice. Cover & refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
