Savory Fried Chicken

Too hot to run the oven here in New England this week.   I went searching through my "on deck" recipes to find something that I could cook quickly on the stovetop.  This recipe from Cooking Light sounded great.  I subbed Penzey's Black and Red Spice for the black pepper and red pepper, and held all the salt until the end.

I always make the same mistake, I prep all the chicken and stack it on a plate and while the oil gets hot, the chicken becomes a sticky mess.   Either lay it out on a cooling rack, or do what I did and give it another quick dredge through the flour before you pop it in the oil.      I had mine with a little Sriracha drizzle, but the chicken itself was spicy enough for both of my guys.  

 Savory Fried Chicken with Hot Sauce

Savory Fried Chicken



  • 1 package thinly sliced chicken breasts
  • 1 large egg -- lightly beaten
  • 2/3c flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2t Penzey's Black and Red
  • 2" vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Sriracha


  1. Heat oil to 375.
  2. Place beaten egg in one shallow pan (I like to use cake pans). In another, combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, Black & Red spice.
  3. Dip chicken in egg and then dredge in flour mixture. Shake off excess and place on a cooling rack over a half sheet pan (if chicken gets sticky while it sits, give it another quick dredge through the flour mixture).
  4. Fry until golden brown on both sides and chicken is cooked through. Lay on a paper towel lined platter, sprinkling both sides with kosher salt. Serve with Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
