There are times
inspiration strikes me in the kitchen - these times are few and far between.
There are also times when the things I cook in the kitchen are purely based on
what is the fridge or cupboards and needs to be used. A kitchen adventure bore
out of the need to feed the family. The latter being what was required this
We had some chicken
breast chunks which needed cooking ASAP and children that required dinner. The
inspiration that struck included a couple of mini boxes of rice krispies (left
over from our recent caravan holiday) - and krispie chicken bites were born.
I poured the rice
krispies into a bowl and gave them a bit of crunch with my hands, added in some
Schwartz Chicken Chargrill seasoning too for flavour. The chicken breast chunks
were then dunked in flour and dipped in egg before getting a nice crunchy krispie
I baked them in the
oven for about 20 minutes on 180 (fan) - sprayed them with a little oil on the
top. I use my Pampered Chef Stoneware to cook nearly EVERYTHING in - so they
didn't stick on the bottom and there was no need for oil on the bottom either.
They were really
light in texture once cooked. In fact the little on wolfed it down. The rest of
us all agreed they were pretty scrummy too. It nice when an experiment turns
out ok in the end.
