Day 2 of Two Days of Cooking Dinner

Day two of two days in a row of cooking dinner involved chicken…again.  This is one staple that the carnivores in my family like to eat, and I can usually find it for a decent price at Sams.

Chicky has pinned quite a few recipes on Pinterest, and I had seen a simple chicken recipe a few days back.  Although I couldn’t locate the pin again, I googled “chicken” and “brown sugar” and found just what I was looking for…Chicken Hurry.

My original intent had been to cook this in the crockpot, but I realized I didn’t have enough chicken, so, by the time I ran to the grocery store to get more on the way from taking Rooster to the college to get registered for college…a two-hour ordeal), I didn’t have time and had to do it the old fashioned way and bake it instead.  I followed someone’s recommendation by doubling the amount of sauce I made.  I also added garlic.

You can see it in the 9×13 pan in the center of my table…

The other item I made for this dinner was Old Fashioned Fry Bread.

I’ve been very active on the Harry Potter Knit/Crochet House Cup forum on Ravelry.  Someone shared this recipe, and I knew I had to try out.  I’m pasting the recipe below…

Old Fashioned Fry Bread

4 cups flour
2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening (shortening works better than oil in this case)
1 cup warm water

Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add in the shortening and water. Add only enough water to make dough stick together. Knead dough until smooth, make into fist-sized balls. Cover them with a towel for 10 minutes then pat them out into circles about the size of a pancake. Fry in hot cooking oil in cast iron skillet until brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels, serve with jam

Here’s what the bread looked like while I was cooking it…

I had no idea if they would taste good.  They were a lot thicker than I’d anticipated.

Well, let me tell you that the family RAVED about these!  They turned out more biscuit-y than pancake-y, but everyone said that was fine with them.

Chicky and the Mr. grabbed the honey and ate a couple that way.

Thus ended day two of cooking.

Nobody was hurt in the process, although the family is still recovering from shock.
