So, now it's fall. Back to housework. My diet. My blogging.
I just have to tell you about the dinner I made tonight. It was that terrific.
I decided to make the Oven Baked Chicken recipe on the Gluten-Free Bisquick Box. I have made this once before and it was so good that I just had to make it again. You can view the recipe here. They also have a lot of other really yummy-looking recipes on their website that I'm going to have to try!
I used chicken thighs instead of a whole, cut-up chicken. I also added some red pepper to the flour mix to try to add a little zip to the batter as the batter alone is a little bland for our taste buds. I think next time, I would add even a little more, although it was very good just the same.
I even tried taking the skin off of one of the thighs before dipping to see if the batter would still stick to the chicken. It did, although I must admit, I liked the taste of the chicken with skin on much better. Again, maybe with more seasoning, this would be a good, lower fat option.
After the first 35 minutes were up, I flipped the chicken per the directions and threw a baking sheet with New Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries in the oven to bake with the chicken for the remaining 15 minutes. These are really good and are marked "Gluten-Free" right on the bag. Now, if you have some sweet potatoes, you can make your own sweet potato fries very easily yourself, it's true, but these are a nice, quick option if you don't mind the extra ingredients in them.
(SWEET POTATOES, CANOLA OIL MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, RICE FLOUR, TAPIOCA DEXTRIN, SEA SALT, LEAVENING (SODIUM ACID PYROPHOSPHATE, SODIUM BICARBONATE), XANTHAN GUM, ANNATTO (COLOR), DISODIUM SODIUM ACID PYROPHOSPHATE.)
Behold. A quick, easy, delicious Sunday night dinner.
If you haven't tried Gluten-Free Bisquick or Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries yet, you should!
Have a great gluten-free week!
