I’ve been enjoying cooking with the fresh herbs this week, and I can’t wait until our own herbs start to sprout. The seeds say only 10-14 days and they’ll begin to sprout. It will be so much cheaper to cut herbs out of our own pots, than to buy them fresh. Fresh thyme cost me $3.00, and it’s not going to last much more than a week!
Un-Fried Chicken With Thyme
- 1/8 cup milk
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 cup crushed saltine crackers
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- dash of pepper
- dash of salt
- 1/2 TBL Fresh Thyme or 1 tsp. crushed, dried thyme
- 2 LBS of chicken (breasts are the healthy option.. we used thighs because my husband thinks breasts are too dry and there are certain things I indulge him with.. chicken thighs are one of them. But let me tell you, in this, thighs taste amazing!)
- 2 TBL butter
Combine milk and eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine crushed crackers and seasonings. Dip chicken into egg mixture and then dry crumb mixture. Place in a greased baking dish and drizzle with melted butter (optional). Bake at 375 for one hour or until chicken is cooked through. No need to turn the chicken during cooking.
