I purchased two new cookbooks today. Everyday Food Great Food Fast and Everyday Food Fresh Flavor Fast. I love my magazine for Everyday Food so it only made sense to add these two books to my collection. We already tried one of the recipes today from Great Food Fast: Buttermilk Baked Chicken. I have never made anything like this so it was a lot of fun and I must say it was really easy. It was so flavorful and the chicken was so juicy (even the breast). We served it with a Carrot and Cumin slaw. That too was very good. I used a lot more cabbage than I did carrots. That's a lot of carrot. It calls for three shredded and only 1/4 of the cabbage. I used 3/4 of the cabbage and one carrot shredded. It seems like it needs something else but it is really good and refreshing. I had so much of the breading left over that I used some chicken breasts I had in the fridge to make chicken strip but simply cutting the breast meat into strips and nuggets and breading them. Froze them and will eat them another day. I can't wait until that day comes! So so so good.
