On our search for some cooking foil, I ran into a similar product that I was hesitant to try. Some of you might have heard of this before and some of you might think it's just plain crazy. It's called "Cooking Hoil" and it's courtesy of our friends at Homever (remember the world's worst goldfish bowl?). Luckily we passed on this unique opportunity and went with the traditional tried, tested, and true product known to many as "cooking foil". Talk about dodging a dodge ball there, huh?
Anyways, for those who are interested in my antics in the kitchen, here are my homemade chicken fingers that were made with the help of our new toaster oven. Just a little FYI when I first turned on the oven for a quick "burn in" test, it started smoking and smelling like cheap plastic. I guess you do get what you pay for! There are no temperature settings, just a timer for the oven and a choice to have either the top element on, the bottom element on, or both.
I cut up a few chicken breasts into strips, mashed up some salted soda crackers to use instead of bread crumbs, added some salt, pepper, and added some basil to the dry mixture. After a quick egg wash the strips were then dunked into the dry mix and fried in a pan, then finished off in the oven.
What would we do without our trusty TFAL pan?
The $15 toaster oven in all its glory--with a pearl blue paint job to boot, what more could you ask for in a toaster oven (real temperature settings would be nice, but that would be asking for too much for $15)?
The final product...
