Two new recipes today and as you can tell from the title, one of these SUUUUUCKS. Can you guess which one?
First up we have Creamy Mashed Cauliflower
Finished – yep, it’s purple
Main course is Oven Fried Chicken
And Dinner tonight – I added some rice to round it out
I know, I know, I haven’t said ANYTHING about the recipes. For the cauliflower, I added purple cauliflower to make it more fun. BUT, it was a huge flop. At first it was ok, but the more I ate it, the more it got gross. I tried more butter, more salt, mixing it with the rice, but nothing made it good. I was actually disappointed, too, even though it was what I expected. That first taste just raised my expectations so high. What a waste of perfectly good cauliflower 😦
The chicken on the other hand, was GREAT. The only problem I had was that I was trying to do a half a recipe, but my chicken breasts were huge. I still used half the breading, but next time, I will use all of it. I may try to do some chicken finders instead of breasts. I only baked it for 20 minutes and it was perfect. I even took a bite and juice just squirted out! I would do without the sesame seeds, but that is just because I am not the biggest fan of them. I also had a problem with the chicken sticking, but I think that can be solved next time by putting some oil on the bottom of the chicken. I will try that next time. I actually already doubled the oil for the top, so maybe I need a lighter hand 😉
