TATT. Chicken Parm & Pickle Pasta

Good morning! It's TATT time! Click on the icon to head over to Andreas blog to see who else is joining in on the fun.

This is the recipe(s) that I make every time we go on a picnic. They travel well and taste great!

Chicken Parm or Ultimate Chicken fingers

• 2/3 cup Original Bisquick mix
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 1/2 teaspoon salt or garlic salt
• 1/2 teaspoon paprika
• 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 Ib), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
• 1 egg, slightly beaten
• 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted (I add a little bit of lemon juice to this also)


1. Heat oven to 450°F. Line cookie sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray. In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, place Bisquick mix, cheese, salt and paprika.

2. Dip half of chicken strips into egg; place in bag of Bisquick mixture. Seal bag; shake to coat. On cookie sheet, place chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken. Drizzle butter over chicken.

3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, turning after 6 minutes with pancake turner, until no longer pink in center.

Pickle Pasta
(I don't really have a recipe that I follow so I'm sorry for the random explanations)
Sweet Pickles
Sweet Pickle Juice
Italian seasoning
Shredded cheese
1. Make pasta according to package
2. Mix small glob (that's a word right?) of mayo in with pickle juice. I don't like mayo so I mix a lot of juice. I go until I smell the juice not the mayo. Then add the italian seasoning (just a pinch)
3.Slice pickles to size you like them. I make the very small, almost relish small.
4. Pour sauce mix over pasta then toss in cheese and pickles.
