Cheater Chicken

As most of you have gathered by now I am totally a cheater in regards to food and craft. I try and find the simplest way of doing things.
This recipe below is a firm favourite in our house
I Cup Powdered Milk
2 Cups Water
Organic Chicken Breast
Breadcrumbs
Oil to Fry off
Yep you absolutely read that correctly. I don't waste the good milk over here. Saving that little bit extra dosh here and there with these tricks allows me to be able to buy organic.
Nor do I fluff about with flour and eggs for crumbing.
Mix your powdered milk with your water and whisk together till creamy.
Dice/Slice your chicken pieces and let soak in the milk.
Coat in your breadcrumbs and allow at least an hour in the fridge for the crumbs to settle.
Fry off in a little oil. DONE




The chicken is soooo moist it practically falls apart. Another version I do is coat in natural or greek yoghurt and coat with breadcrumbs.
I then slice it up and mix with, shredded carrot, beetroot, baby spinach and grated cheese. For the love of god, please grate your own cheese, the grated cheese you buy is full of nasties. Some ranch dressing and GET IN MY BELLY




What shortcuts do you take? I would love to hear about them

DIY Basket

Ever been stuck for wrapping or need a last minute alternative?

I have such a quick and easy basket for you.

All you need is a 12 x 12 piece of thick scrapbook paper or even your kids cardboard!
Glue or double sided tape
Ribbon
Hole punch






You then cut the 12 x 12 in half





The stick one half across the other with either glue or double sided tape







You can trim the ends of if you want but as it's going to be on the inside I didn't bother, this is supposed to be quick not fiddly.

Fold your sides up and start hole punching your corners







Join your corners with ribbon




Then place whatever you have inside. I added cellophane because I buy it by the roll but you don't have to go that far.





Your done!! Five minutes tops!!!!
This is a joke present for my sister who rang me at 2am to drive 40 mins to change a fuse! Use a freakin candle sista

Hope your all having a better week than last xxx
