The first lettuce

Tonight proved to be very exciting for Col and I as we devoured the first of our lettuce leaves!

The recipe is a weight watchers one, however we were lacking a few ingredients and changed it to suit.

Cripsy Chicken – tastes much better then KFC!

1 Chicken breast
1 teaspoon seasoning – we used Portuguese
1 teaspoon garlic granules
1/2 cup of plain flour
spray oil
a tablespoon of Soy sauce

Preheat oven to 240’C
Slice chicken into strips and soak in a little soy sauce
Combine flour and seasoning, coat chicken
Place chicken on a greased tray and spray with oil
Bake for 15 minutes
Too easy!

We served ours up with our lettuce and some steamed rice.

    That chicken sounds delicious …. and easy. I’m going to give it a try.
    There’s nothing better than homegrown lettuce, either!

    That looks so nice that I’ve sent the recipe home to try on Ant – am close to salvating already, we can have it with homegrown spinach leaves – yay for people with their own produce gardens!
