Fried chicken is the ultimate picnic food in the South, but unfortunately it is not very healthy. Here is an unfried version that will give you that crunch without having to fry the chicken in all that oil.
chicken breast (1 per person)
2 cups Cornflakes cereal
1/4 cup flour
2 egg whites, beaten
3/4 tsp Cajun seasoning (optional)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Coarsely grind Cornflakes in food processor
3. Put Cornflakes in shallow dish
4. Place flour in a separate dish (if you are using Cajun seasoning, blend this with flour)
5. Place egg in 3rd dish
6. Place chicken breast in flour, then egg, then Cornflakes
7- Cook in pre-heated oven approx. 30 min or until cooked through
Punch bowl cake is one of those desserts that you can really do whatever you like with it and it will probably taste ok in the end.
Here is the recipe I used for our dinner & Disney movie night for “A Bug’s Life”
1 box yellow cake mix (or you can use angel food cake)
4 medium bananas
1 can crushed pineapple
1 tub of cool whip (I use fat free)
1 box vanilla pudding
Milk & egg as needed for cake and pudding per directions
Prepare your cake mix as directed on package. Allow time to cool. Crumble.
Prepare pudding mix as directed.
In a punch bowl or other large bowl, layer cake crumbles, pudding, fruit, cool whip.
Top with remaining cool whip.
Chill in refrigerator.
I personally think this recipe tastes even better once all the layers have really had a chance to “mesh” with each other overnight.
