Crispy Chicken Cutlet and Churros
Crispy Chicken Cutlet with Brown Rice
With my very own twist. I've tenderized the skinless and boneless chicken breast to a some what thin fillet. Coated it with egg whites, whole wheat flour, dash of whole wheat bread crumb and shredded reggiano parmigiano. It was crunchy and flavourful you need not add salt. For our side we had one boil in a bag brown rice to serve 4. 1/3 cup each to be exact.
Dessert ~ Our Homemade Churros w/ Semisweet chocolate dip
These are homemade churros made with whole wheat flour. Flash fried in olive oil and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. The dip is semisweet chocolate melted with cream and a bit of golden syrup. This was a hit last night. Kiddies loved it! Well, who doesn't love chocolate. Kiddies fancy dark chocolate as much as I do and they're much healthier for you.
Nigella's Churros recipe
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour (I used whole wheat flour which is why the churros look dark brown)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup boiling water
2 cups corn or vegetable oil for deep frying (I didn't have either so I used olive oil)
Once fried lightly coat churros with:
1/4 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon mixed together.
4 oz. of good quality bittersweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli semi-sweet)
1 tablespoon golden syrup
2/3 cup heavy cream
Melt in saucepan.
