I was looking for something different for lunch today. Decided to give the focaccia recipe a run for its money from my bread maker's cook book.

I ended up adding extras like capsicum from my garden along with fresh rosemary from out the back as well. Also home pickled olives from a friend's garden. As well as other goodies from the fridge.

Looks great and smells so good.

Pat & I ate half for lunch and the rest we are eating tonight along with home made chicken vegie soup.

Tomorrow I am thinking I'll try a pizza base and make a ham and pineapple pizza.

Until next time....hoo roo

Chicken Nuggets

When James was little he loved chicken nuggets. I used to pop some on his plate with a small salad as a lunch meal on weekends.

I must say I like them too. Well nothing like an reformed cook who is more in touch with what is in food and what isn't.

The stupidmarkets sell the nuggets either in the deli, meat section or the freezer. If your eyesight is good and you know all the know what is in the nugget.

You can go to one of those chicken franchise shops and pay about $10.99 a kilo for some of their chicken nuggets.

Or you can do what I do and save yourself a heap of money and get a great feed of chicken nuggets.

Lets take a look. mrgreen

First off you need a healthy salad to go with your nuggets. In the colder months you may need to supplement your own garden salads with some from the green grocer. Now this is all done..the chicken nuggets are next.

This is nice and easy.

I buy my chicken breasts from a butcher who sells them for $8.99 a kilo. One small chicken boob will do just nicely.

Cube the chicken breast into bite size pieces and coat them with some of these crumbs.

That is what the chicken franchise shops use and into some oil the crumbed cubes go.

So there you have it....chicken nuggest that are made with pure chicken meat..and a few crumb to coat the meat.

Why don't you try it and see what the kids or yourself think mrgreen

Until next time....hoo roo
