Crispy Cheddar Chicken

It has been way too long since I shared a recipe with you all. I had some internet problems and we're in the process of buying a great house so I haven't had the time to stop in and post for a while. 

This recipe is one I saw on pinterest and since I had all the ingredients in the cabinet already I cooked it up a few days later.  It turned out pretty good. I didn't use the cheese sauce but Mike did and said it was so good with it poured over top.  

4 breasts chicken
2/3 cup milk
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups italian breadcrumbs
1 (18 ounce) can Progresso Creamy Three Cheese cooking sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Pour milk, cheese and breadcrumbs in to three separate dishes.  Cut each chicken breast into smaller pieces.  Dip into milk, then cheese, then breadcrumbs until well coated. (No pictures of this messy process, sorry)

Lay chicken on baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked and no longer pink.  While chicken is cooking, warm up the cheese cooking sauce in a pot.   Pour cheese sauce over chicken before serving.

Corn Dog Casserole

I've mentioned my love of hot dogs before and when I saw several friends pin this recipe on pinterest I too pinned it and made it for dinner later that week.  I followed all the directions, but mine got a little burnt on the top.  It was still pretty good though. 

2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup diced onions
1 1/2 pounds hot dogs
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 packages (8-1/2 ounces each) corn bread/muffin mix
 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
celery salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in large pan.  Saute onion in butter until softened.  Mix in chopped hot dogs until lightly browned.   Set 1 cup of hot dogs aside. 

In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and pepper.  Stir in remaining hot dogs, corn bread mix, and 1 1/2 cups cheese.  

Spread mixture into baking dish. Cover with cup of hot dogs and remaining cheese.   Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Christmas 2013

Wow, I was just looking though all my unpublished posts and noticed I never shared our Christmas from 2013. So almost 3 months late, here it is.  We had a nice morning opening presents at home from Santa. We then headed to my parents house for breakfast and more presents.  Around lunch time we headed to my Aunt and Uncles house for the family get together.   It was another great year and we got so much stuff and are so glad we could share it with our families!
