Not the best picture! Chicken tender, steak, mashed potatoes and green beans.
There are times I’m at a loss as to what to fix for supper each night. I open the freezer and just stare, hoping something will come to mind. The other day was one of those days. I knew I needed to get something out to thaw but what!
I decided on chicken tenders only to later go to the store and bought a couple of ribeye steaks Hey they were on sale!
So we had chicken and steak for supper that night.
Speaking of steaks, have you ever cooked yours in the oven? I have started doing that and they are the best steaks I’ve had in a long time.
Easy peasy, all you need do is salt, generously, your steaks, add some pepper and garlic powder. Turn your oven to 425 degrees and heat an iron skillet very hot, add your steak and sear on both sides for about 2 minutes on each side. Slide your skillet with your steaks in the oven, depending your preference for your steak cook for about 3-5 minutes for medium rare of a steak about 1 and 1/2 inches to 2 inches thickness, if you prefer a medium cook for a couple of more minutes.
Make sure you let the steak rest before cutting into it.
The chicken was so easy to do:
6 chicken tenders
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup corn meal mix or yellow corn meal
1/4 cup or more shredded Parmesan cheese (the dry kind)
Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Combine the breadcrumbs, corn meal and cheese in one bowl and add the sour cream to another bowl.
Dredge the chicken in the sour cream, the the breadcrumb mixture.
Add to heated oil in a large skillet and cook about 4 minutes over medium heat on one side, turn and continue to cook until cooked through.
Drain on a paper towel.
