1/16/13 - Oven Baked Chicken

  • 0

remember when my son was young he would ask for things like fish sticks and shake and bake chicken like his friends has at their dinner table. NO WAT for a chefs kid- so eventually I learned how to oven make a homemade mixture. I actually had to pretend it was shake n bake.

P.s. that son grew up to be an accomplished chef himself and has edited my recipe for me!
