Chicken Fried Chicken

Wow !  I haven't posted anything here for a very long time.  I guess that's what happens when you have 6 children & run 2 businesses.  It's been crazy at our house.  

However, last week we started a new way to organize our dinners.  Our girls are getting old enough to make a lot of meals themselves now, which has been very helpful for me since I have been increasingly getting busier with my photography & sewing businesses.

I decided that Kent & I will do dinner one night (which usually is a harder dish to make) & then each of the kids choose a night of the week & they also get to choose what are going to eat.   Of course, this means they get to make the meal (usually with help from mom ;).  This is not only helpful because I don't have to make every meal, but also we are eating better meals & our children are learning to make more meals.  I am not good with teaching my children in the kitchen, because of my OCD it drives me crazy (we've tried that & it didn't work-all it did was drive me crazy).   With this new plan the younger children get to choose simpler dishes & the older ones have to choose something a little more difficult (our girls are ages 18, 16, 14, & 12 & our boys are 10 & 8).

So on to the fun stuff, for dinner tonight our Miss C (our 16 yo.) with a little help from mom, made Chicken Fried Chicken, garlic bread (from scratch) & corn on the cob.  The chicken turned out amazing.   The chicken was a recipe we have never tried before.  We used this recipe from My Name is Snickerdoodle!  I also made the gravy from that recipe.  It was very clumpy, but I strained the clumps out & then added flour at the end to thicken it up and it worked great.  The only thing I would change is adding more seasoning.  I added salt & pepper, but it needed more.  Otherwise, it was a great meal!

I forgot to take a picture of the gravy, but it was yummy!
