I do not like cooking, but I do like eating, and while I could make do with cheese and crackers or cereal for most meals, my family would prefer not to. Can you believe them?
To make everyone happy, I opt for very simple recipes. Today, I am sharing my quick and easy Chicken Francaise.
I cook the way I craft, on the fly. I am not really good at the specifics, I add to taste, I don't usually measure. I kind of wing it as I go and I don't really care about perfection. Please keep that in mind as we go through this recipe, as always, it is more of a guide or inspiration. My food may not be pretty, but it is good.
Basic, but good.
Ok, so I start with:
Cooking Oil of your choice
I coat the chicken with egg, flour and salt. I put oil in the pan and fry the chicken up, a few minutes on each side. Then I remove the chicken and put it on a plate.
In the same pan I add:
On very low heat, I mix these items together and make a sauce. After about 5-7 minutes, I add the chicken back in and let it cook in the sauce for another few minutes.
That's it! I told you, easy.
I remove it the chicken and serve it with my mom's famous (ok, not really) popcorn rice, mashed potatoes or pasta or just a salad. It depends on the kind of night we're having or how hot it is outside.
I don't have a photo of that pretty dinner picture, because I actually made this at 10am. It's hot here today and I want to be in the pool later, not the kitchen!
Speaking of eating, I made a new sign! It's actually a sticker I have had for a long time. It's my way of getting on the chalkboard paint wagon without actually painting. Cheating again, I know. I shared the easy how-to yesterday at The V-Spot Blog.

My husband always says that I would run the best kids' food restaurant.
Love that guy.
