This is part two of my Good Morning Texas ‘lunchbox for dinner’ segment. It’s not just about cold cuts, you can make a hot meal out of a few lunchbox staples and make it taste completely unique. In this recipe I used crushed pretzels as a breading for chicken, but you could easily use potato or tortilla chips, or even gold fish! And while I used carrot sticks as my side, you could easily toss celery into a Chinese stir fry one night or used sliced ham to make Chicken Cordon Bleu. Your creativity (and a few refrigerator basics) are all you need in the kitchen to get dinner on the table in a hurry!
Making Dinner Using Lunchbox Items
- In a ziplock bag, pound pretzels until they form a coarse meal.
- Dredge the chicken in flour (dusting off excess) then dip in buttermilk and finally coat in crushed pretzels.
- Pan fry until browned or spray with vegetable oil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
