Oven Baked Buttermilk Chicken Strips

Oven Baked Buttermilk Chicken Strips // wishfulchef.com
One night at my friend Diana’s apartment, she made this amazing buttermilk roast chicken for dinner. The chicken was so juicy and delicious, I just had to make it at home myself! I cook this recipe quite often and will never EVER get tired of it. But for a fun twist, I created this mini version of Diana’s recipe using chicken strips that are marinated in a similar buttermilk brine, lightly breaded and baked to a golden brown perfection.

Mini Frittata Cups with Mascarpone and Prosciutto

Mini Frittata Cups with Mascarpone and Prosciutto // wishfulchef.com
Muffin tins are great for cooking food other than muffins. To most folks, muffin tins may not seem like the most obvious kitchen tool to invest in, but there’s a whole world of possibilities! They’re great for freezing and saving for later, portion control or if you want to make mini versions of your food. My mini frittata cups was one of Wishful Chef’s most popular recipes of 2012 and the perfect breakfast or brunch dish to make the night before. You could even freeze and warm them up for breakfast in the morning. See the original recipe with updated images below.

If I had to name the perfect breakfast dish, I’d probably say frittatas. If you’ve never had a frittata before, it’s a simple Italian egg dish much like an omelet. I love making it because it’s so simple and you can use whatever ingredients you want. For this recipe I added a little twist and put each frittata into its own cup using a muffin tin. And continuing my recent mascarpone binge (pasta & tiramisu), I’ve also added a few dollops of mascarpone cheese and prosciutto to keep with the Italian theme. The result is a fluffy, delicious and satisfying meal.

Chewy & Sweet Brown Rice Treats

Chewy & Sweet Brown Rice Treats // wishfulchef.com
I have a weakness for Rice Krispies treats. They are the perfect sweet snack and I can’t just eat one bar…I simply can’t! But this recipe here is definitely not the marshmallowy sweet rice bars I grew up with. Instead, I made them with a peanut butter base and use brown rice cereal. They’re so good, I still could NOT eat just one!
