Crunchy Chicken

We have entered the summer months and with DH playing softball twice a week, me playing volleyball once a week, and camping on the weekends - I only get to cook about once or twice a week. We still eat at home most nights, but it is just mini pizzas, steak hoagies, chicken tenders - easy food. Last Monday I got to cook and tried crunchy chicken.

2/3 cup dry potato flakes
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup butter, melted


Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease or line with foil a baking sheet or a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, combine potato flakes, Parmesan cheese, and garlic salt. Stir until well mixed.
Dip chicken pieces into melted butter or margarine, and roll in potato flake mixture to coat. Place in prepared pan.
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until chicken is tender and golden brown.

It's been awhile!

Wow - I have not posted on my blog since January. That is completely unacceptable. So far this year, DH and I have a had a very tough time. We have had 2 deaths in the family and DH got laid off. Luckily DH got called back to work - thank goodness. We just went on vacation last week, so I am rested and ready for some change. With summer approaching, it is time to start eating healthier for bathing suit season. Summer is our busiest time of the year. DH is playing softball 2 nights a week and I am playing volleyball once a week. In less than a month we will begin camping most weekends. I will keep posting any new recipes I will be trying!
