FREEZER FOODS FRIDAY



Oh my goodness gracious!  Here it is after 3:00 pm and I just realized....It's Friday!!!!!  That means it's Freezer Foods Friday!  Have you been waiting for me?  So sorry!   Today will be a "two-fer".  Golden Chicken Nuggets.  You can make your own chick'n nuggets handy to pop in the oven, or nuke for a quick snack, party food or kiddies meal.  And to go with those chicken nuggets, how about some better-for-you (because they're oven-fried)  Freezer Oven Fries?   Since you've been patiently waiting for me, I'll just jump right into the recipes for ya, how's that?

And don't forget... if you have a tip, recipe, or idea for "making ahead"... please DO join in the linky link-up.  Just be kind and link back to here on your blog and give a link so everyone can come here and enjoy the recipes, will ya?  You're a sweetie!

Golden Chicken Nuggets
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
6 chicken breast halves - boneless and skinless
1/2 cup margarine - melted

Cut the chicken breast halves into about 1 to 1.5 inch chunks (really, whatever size you want, these just work better for me).
Combine the first 4 ingredients.
Dip c hicken in butter; roll in the crumb mixture.
Place in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until the juices run clear.
(this yields about 4 dozen 1 inch nuggets)


Freezer Oven Fries
Peel potatoes and cut into french fries
Shake the raw french fries in a little olive oil.
Bake 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven and cool
Set the cookie sheet they were baked on in the freezer until they are frozen solid.  Scoop them off the pan and store in ziploc bags.

To heat them up:  Just throw 'em back in the oven on a cookie sheet at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, until they are crispy.  (I usually give a light dusting of Pam, or spray olive oil)

Note:  For a little "twist", you could add Italian seasoning, or Cajun  after applying the olive oil.  Both ways are quite tasty!!!

ok, now it's your turn.   Let's hear from you!
