This is a place I can organize recipes that my family has tried and likes. I did not make any of these recipes up myself - I am terrible in the kitchen and needed a place to help with my organization. Feel free to use this site and comment on the recipes you try!!

Crunchy Chicken

I am not sure where I got this one.  :(  I'm sorry that I can not give credit where credit is due.


2 cups original or cheddar french fried onions
2 tbsp flour
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or tenders)
1 egg beaten

Crush french fried onions with flour in plastic bag.  Dip chicken into egg; then coat in onion crumbs.  Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until cooked thru.

Chinese Fried Rice

I got this one from

4 cups cooked rice
3/4 cup thinly slices green onion
2 scrambles eggs
1 box frozen peas
1/2 cup chopped meat (pork tenderloin, diced chicken breast or popcorn shrimp - I used shrimp)
Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp butter

Melt butter in wok or large frying pan.  Saute onion and meat in butter until onion is tender and meat is cooked.  Add frozen peas, cooked rice, scrambled eggs and soy sauce to taste.  Lightly toss or stir until heated thru and peas are tender, about 5 minutes, on low to medium heat.

My 2 cents worth
  • My crew said it had too many peas so I will go lighter on those next time.
  • Very good and very good for leftovers too!
