2  ~Wanna get rid of old bags of chips and croutons? don't waste! (Fried Chicken!) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by snappity-snap on: June 26, 2009 09:38:27 AM
Do you have bags of chips that are only a 10th full?  How about old bags of croutons that got pushed to the back of the pantry? Don't know what to do with them? If so, read on!

I think, that, in this economy, nothing should go to waste.

Yesterday, my mother and I had an intense craving for fried chicken. She was ready to deep fry, but I offered to try to oven-fry the chicken instead. The chicken was ready, but when we checked the pantry, we couldn't find the breadcrumbs we thought we had. There were just a 1/3 bag of two week old potato chips, 3 bags of croutons from last months party, a 1/4 tin of french fried onions, and a sandwich bag of rice chex, all of which we were planning on throwing out.It was seven o'clock, and, not wanting to disappoint, I had my mother relax in the living room and I got to work! I put salt, pepper and garlic on the chicken legs. Then, in a separate bowl,  I crushed all of the chips and croutons and onions very finely (And added some parmesan cheese). After brushing the legs with a butter-garlic mix, I rolled them in the coating mixture, and put them in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour, flipping halfway through.

They came out really yummy!!!! And we didn't waste!

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did.

Here's a picture of them after about 5 minutes in the oven:

Trader Joe's  meatless meatballs
-under $3 at TJ's
-3.75/5 stars

These are pretty good. They dont have the weird aftertaste that fauxmeat can have a lot of the time. The flavor is nice, not too herby. Their texture (quite mushy) is the only thing that differentiates them from the real thing.

This stuff is REALLY REALLY good. It is basically a spinach and ricotta/feta cheese mixture in a crisp pastry. highly recommended.

-morningstar veggie bites (artichoke and spinach filling)
-vegetarian, but not vegan (has mozzarella cheese in it)
-3 per box on sale at Safeway!
- 5/5 stars, without a doubt.

These taste soooooooo good. They're pretty big, so about three or 3 or 4 pieces make a solid meal. Highly recommended.

Trader Joe's Chickenless Nuggets
-under $3 @ Trader Joe's
-1.5/5 stars

These are basically soy protein nuggets. They look like real chicken nuggets. I tried them both baked and microwaved. The microwaved version was too mushy, as many faux-meats can be, but once baked it got a little firmer. Flavorwise, it was just okay. It had the weird overly soyish flavor, but with some gravy it was tolerable. I wouldn't buy it again.

Annie Chun's Teriyaki Noodle Bowl
-about $2-3 at trader joe's
-vegan Smiley
-3/5 stars

I had these for lunch today. They were easy to prepare (just zap in the microwave for 2 minutes) and had okay flavor. However, the flavor was lacking and tasted sour as opposed to the lightly sweet teriyaki flavor I'm used to finding in authentic Japanese food. Wouldn't buy again.

-Trader Joe's Beefless Strips-vegan
-price-under $3
-0/5 stars Embarrassed

These were bad from the start. When I opened the package, the disgusting smell was the first thing I noticed. It smelled like wet dog food!  Tongue I decided to risk it and zapped it in the microwave. The spices used on the texturized soy protein was nice, but the item itself was horrible. Let's just say it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Okay, I'll start it off Smiley


-Amy's Palak Paneer (Indian Creamed Spinach and Cheese with Rice and Rajma Dal)
-Vegetarian, but not vegan
-Price: $1.99 at Target!
-Amy's says: "Smooth, creamy palak paneer, made from organic spinach and soft Indian cheese, is lightly spiced with authentic Indian herbs and spices. Rajmah dal, made from organic red kidney beans in a ginger-garlic sauce and tender

-3/5 stars

The spinach and cheese was good flavorwise, but the texture was a little TOO creamy. It was almost like baby food. The beans were way too gingery and the rice was dry. It wasn't good enough to make me want to buy it again, but it wasn't the worst I've ever had.

hope this helped! please add your input! Smiley
