Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!

My youngest is a serious chocolate, lover. It has been this way since a friend of mine gave her a slice of homemade chocolate cake at the tender age of 2. Since then, there has been no turning back. Now, she is reading the ingredients and verifying the chocolate quality by the percentage of cacao. I think to myself……who’s child is this….lol.

In all honest I love her thirst for knowledge, discovery and detailed oriented way of being, when it come to things of interest to her……who know’s it may lead her to a life and career she loves, when she’s older.

Since it’s been sooooo hot out. I have been trying not use the oven very much. So off to the kitchen she and I went to make chocolate bar’s.

All I have to say is……why haven’t I been doing this all along. To make up for lost time, I am sure I will post all types of chocolate bar recipes on this blog……you’ve been forewarned…lol.

Let’s dive into this recipe……

Ingredients:

12 oz. ( 1 1/2 Cups) Melted chocolate of choice
1 Cup of Crisp Rice Cereal of choice

Method:

1. In a double boiler melt your chocolate. We used 4 oz. bittersweet and 8 oz. of semi- sweet. We made this recipe again using 6 oz. semi-sweet and 6 oz. of milk chocolate and then again for a friend using 4 oz. bittersweet and 8 oz. milk chocolate. So you can really use what every chocolate and ratio you desire. Since you’re making them yourself……they should be everything you want them to be.

2. Once your chocolate has cooled for a minute or 2 add your rice cereal. Stir to coat each piece of cereal with the melted chocolate.

3. In a small parchment-lined baking tray (making sure the parchment overhangs for easy removal later. Pour your mixture in and spread out evenly. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minute or the freezer for 15 to allow the chocolate to set.

4. Remove for the refrigerator or freezer and cut into the desired size.

Crispy & Juicy Oven Fried Chicken Tenders

Hello everyone,

I am here to share another kitchen experiment success.  Recently, I saw a YouTube video using rice puff cereal to make oven fried chicken.  The only issue I had with the recipe was letting the chicken marinate in a buttermilk and poultry season mixture for several hour’s or even over night.  The day I decided to try the recipe I only had a little over an hour to make it happen.  Then it hit me…….my good friend was telling me about the velveting technique used in Asian cooking for meat. It helps to keep your meat juicy and tender. Again, I was short on time so I had to find a short cut. Since this experiment  happened to work out well I wanted to share.

Ingredients :

12 Chicken Tenderloins
1 Cup of water
1 TBS of Corn Starch
2 Cups of puff rice cereal
Cooking Spray (or drizzle lightly with oil of choice)

Seasoning of choice. ….I combined and mixed the following in a small bowl:

1 tsp of Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Paprika
1/2 tsp of salt and black pepper

Directions:

In a large bowl add water and cornstarch.  Mix well. Add chicken to the mixture.  Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes.

While waiting take your puff rice cereal and blend in a food processor or blender into a fine crumb consistency.  Place in a shallow bowl for later.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with foil or parchment paper and place a baking rack on top. Spray your baking rack with cooking spray.

Pre-heat oven to 450 °

Remove Chicken from the refrigerator. Place it in a shallow bowl and season both sides.

Next dip and cover with puff rice cereal. Place on the baking rack.  Spray your tenderloins with cooking spray.

Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Your tenders will have great crunch with a juicy and tender inside.
