Kelly's Oven Crispy Chicken

1 pound Chicken pieces ( breasts, thighs, legs, or even strips or nuggets if you like)

1 cup buttermilk or milk

1 cup fresh bread crumbs

½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 tsp garlic salt

½ tsp paprika

(optional) 1Tbsp ground flax seed, 1Tbsp Wheat germ, 1 Tbsp Whole wheat flour ( I do all of these for extra nutrition)

1Tbsp melted butter.

Soak Chicken in buttermilk or milk for 30min, mix dry ingredients in large Ziploc, put chicken in one piece at a time to coat well. Place on cookie sheet and drizzle with butter. Bake at 400F for 15-35 min depending on size of chicken pieces. Flip once during cooking.

(Kelly’s tip_ take the butts of my bread and pulse them for a few seconds in my food processor or small chopper to make my breadcrumbs- it saves us from wasting the ends and I get to use my own yummy bread. My favorite is with Dave’s Killer Bread)

Korean Beef

This is actually Melissa L's recipe but we love it so much I had to share it.

1-2lb Tri tip sirloin-sliced thin across the grain

Marinate in:

½ tsp salt

1/3 cup sugar

¼ cup soy sauce

3 tbsp sesame oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

4 green onions, finely sliced.

Marinate for 30 min or 3 days- Grill until desired doneness (works best with wire basket because pieces are small)

Serve with rice and your favorite salad or veggie.

(tip- I slice it up as soon as I take it out of the grocery bag and marinate it then so it is ready when I am, that night or later in the week)

Meal Delivery?

I don't know about you but I stress over what to bring people when bringing a meal after baby, etc. What is your go-to dish that most anybody loves and you usually bring?
