Cracker Crumb Chicken



When I was a kid, I was extremely fascinated by dinosaurs. I would read all about them, go to Science World to learn about them and talk to everyone who would listen (maybe even people who didn't listen) about them.

So when I heard that scientists have found ample evidence to prove modern birds are descendants of dinosaurs, I was pretty excited. It was as though I was sort of living with dinosaurs. And chickens? Eating dinosaurs. Take that Jurassic Park: I am getting you dinosaurs back for eating some of my kind.

To see how close chickens and dinosaurs are, a new found hero of mine named Jack Horner is planning on creating a dinosaur by reverse-evolving a chicken. Think about that next time you bite into a piece of chicken.


 Smoking hot, it must be good



What you'll need:

-2 large boneless chicken breasts
-2 eggs
-3/4 cup crushed crackers
-1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
-dash of ground pepper
-dash of spicy sea salt
-1/4 cup butter, cubed


Directions:

    1.   Preheat the oven to 375˚F
    2.   In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. On a large plate, combine the crushed crackers, chipotle, pepper and salt.
    3.   Dip each chicken breast in the whisked eggs, then coat in the cracker mixture. Place on a glass baking dish. Add the cubed butter around the chicken.
    4.   Bake for around 35 minutes

  5. I loves baked chicken, any flavours, herbs or spices in it would taste absolutely delicious. You have made yours looking yummy but I have never heard of chipotle powder before. Got to google to check it out.
