Since I stopped frying foods, I have been looking to find flavorful ways to "bake" my meats in a way that is still appealing to the family. This month, we tried J&D's Crispy Bake, a product made by a small company that specializes in "bacon-flavored" products that aren't made from actual meat products. I tried this new product, available at Walmart SuperCenters, on some chicken to see how it did.
- First, the box makes quite a few meals. I used this box to do a grand total of 4 pounds of chicken, and there was a little left over.
- To make my Crispy Bacon Coated Chicken, make sure your chicken is skinless, boneless, and sliced thin. Pat dry and place in a bowl.
- Then, lightly coat each piece with a olive-oil cooking spray on both sides (I use the olive-oil baking spray) before covering it with the Crispy Bake crumbs on both sides.
- Now, bake it according to the directions on the package, or until the chicken reaches the proper internal temperature.
My kids loved this meal, and I've made it two more times since we first made it. It's a crispy, crunchy alternative to frying that tastes like bacon -- without the bacon!
This product, and other J&D's products (like thier yummy croutons) are available at Walmart SuperCenters. You can find out more about J&D's on Facebook and Twitter!
