Menu June 1st to June 14th

I have been having a great time looking through recipes online and in my recipe collection finding yummy things to make for dinner. I LOVE to cook and try new recipes and most of the new ones I have found are from the blog Better Than Burgers.

Mexican Chicken Strips From Better Than Burgers
1 1/2 -2 c. flour
1 envelope taco seasoning

Mix flour and taco seasoning together in a shallow dish. Set aside.

3 lb.. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
2 c. buttermilk
2 package crushed "Frito" corn chips (for extra ZIP use the Chili flavored Frito's)
oil for cooking

Heat oil in a frying pan and heat until HOT. Place corn chips in a plastic bag (ziplock) and smash with a rolling pin, place in a shallow dish. Pour buttermilk into medium sized bowl. Dip chicken strips into flour mixture, then buttermilk and then crushed corn chips. Turn oil down to MEDIUM heat (this will prevent your chicken from cooking too fast and also your coating to burn) Put coated chicken into hot oil and cook. Turn every 3-4 minutes to prevent coating from burning and to cook the chicken evenly. Cook until done. *Mine took about 20 minutes or so to cook, but cooking time depends on the thickness and size of your chicken strips.

FOR A HEALTHY VERSION OF THIS: Place chicken strips (prepared following the same directions as above) on a large, lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until the chicken is completely done and the juices run clear.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauces.

Vegetable Chowder and hot homemade bread
I have NEVER made homemade bread before in my life so this will be an adventure for me. I am not a baker so I hope it turns out OK. The recipe is from my mom and it is so yummy. The Chowder recipe is one from my Grandma Helen, it is so easy and yummy.

Vegetable Chowder
2 cups diced potatoes
2 cups diced or sliced carrots
½ cup diced celery
¼ cup diced onion
1 ½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper 2 cups boiling water
Simmer the above ingredients until done. Do Not drain the water
¼ cup butter softened
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk
Make a sauce with these ingredients
When the vegetable are done add the milk, flour, butter sauce and stir. Then add
1 can cream corn
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese (I am going to use Sharp Cheddar)
Stir all together.

Hope you enjoy this and maybe find an idea or two for your menu.
