What?! An Easy Dinner Recipe?!

Because every day you don’t feel like producing a five-star dining affair, today I am bringing you an easy, delicious and healthy dinner! You’re welcome.

Before I get to the super simple recipe, let me tell you a story about why I love cracker crumbs (which is what you will be using for breading). When I was a baby and toddler, every time I would start to throw a tantrum, I would be given one of those little 2 packs of saltine crackers. I would mush them (in the packet) between my teeth and play with them for hours. There is something incredibly soothing about it. So, when I first decided to use cracker crumbs in a recipe, that soothing feeling came flooding back, and now I will never use regular bread crumbs again.PS- There is also a song they sang to shut me up with the crackers, but I will spare you that!

One more thing before the recipe. My favorite condiment. I LOVE hot sauce. Love, love, love, love. I have made my own, I eat it on everything, and I will try every and any type I can get my hands on. But my very favorite hot sauce? Sylvia’s Kickin’ Hot Hot Sauce. For $1 a bottle, I could live off this stuff. The flavor is so good, and the heat is just enough to be spicy but not override the flavor. I highly recommend you pick a bottle up. Today. But not before you read this recipe…

  1. I need to make something buffalo at home one of these days. I love wings when we go out, and I feel like I need to incorporate them into our regular rotation… but without all the frying 🙂
