(Non-dairy) Cheesy and crumbly chicken
I am missing breaded chicken so I came up with this recipe. This is an easy dish and you don't need a lot of prep time and cooking time either.
4 pieces of chicken breasts, thawed
1/2 cup of shredded Daiya cheese mozarella flavor
1/2 cup of crushed Nature's Path rice cereal
2 tablespoon of organic Spectrum shortening (not melted)
Preheat the stove at 425 degrees F. Cover the chicken with the shortening, then roll around the crushed rice cereal and Daiya (cheese substitute). Make sure it's covered. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until done.
For the side dish:
1 package of organic green beans
1/2 cup water
Leftover bacon fat(from frying bacon), you can use any animal fat you have such as tallow or duck.
In a frying pan, put the green beans and the water. Bring to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes or until tender. Then when the water is nearly gone, add the bacon fat and stir it around. Serve hot with the chicken.
My daughter loved this, she was begging me to make more later.
