Who wants a comforting, warm meal? I DO!!!!!

I spent all day baking and cooking and concocting today... more posts to follow but the meal that I must post was the dinner I made. Does anyone else look at the kid's menu sometimes and think how good all that food sounds? Well today all I wanted was something off the kid's menu so... Mac N Cheese and Chicken Fingers it is!!!

Chicken Fingers:


3 Chicken breasts
1 Cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 Cup Parmesen cheese
4 TBSP butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

3. Mix parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a bowl.

4. Melt butter in a separate bowl.

5. Dip chicken in butter then in the dry mix. Coat all side and put on a baking sheet with parchment paper.

6. Bake for 30 minutes and serve with a great sauce!!

The best part about this recipe is that it's easy! The second best part is that it was sooo moist even when baked that I couldn't wrap my head around it!

2. While boiling the pasta, melt butter on low heat.

3. Add all dry ingredients and whisk until smooth and thick.
