Crispy Chicken Caesar Club Sandwich

Image
We've mostly given up on the fast food places in our area, they are too inconsistent and the prices have risen way too high for what you are getting.   My favorite, hands down, is the Wendy's Spicy Chicken sandwich.     I've had this recipe for a while, but never seemed to have all of the ingredients on hand.     I almost made them Wednesday, but I was missing a sub I needed for the sauce and the veggies.  Luckily the guys pizza craving pushed them to Thursday, giving me the opportunity to go to the store and get the things I needed.

I buy thinly sliced chicken breasts, this package had about 5.   I got them working in the buttermilk mixture and then moved on to the sauce.    We do not eat mayo, so I subbed greek yogurt.   I spread the buns with butter and gave them a quick trip under the broiler until they were golden brown.    I only did 2 rolls, Jake NEVER eats anything on them, but once he saw our sandwiches he asked for one too.  

This was a huge hit, we all thought …

Jalapeno Popper Hot Dogs

Image
Jalapeno Poppers are one of my favorite foods.    When I saw these hot dogs from the Drink and Dish blog, I couldn't wait for an opportunity to give them a try.    Hot dogs are more of a summertime grill food around here, but I've gotten into a cooking rut and decided to put them into the rotation last night.

I used my greek yogurt earlier in the week, so I subbed some sour cream instead.   Jarred minced garlic and pickled jalapeno slices instead of the fresh.  I like the New England style buns, buttered and cooked on a griddle pan.   Once they were done, I cooked the hot dogs on the same pan.   

These were awesome, and such a nice change from the traditional ketchup/mustard/relish combination.    I'll definitely be making them again and again.    Thank you to Ari at Drink and Dish for the recipe, looking forward to checking out her site and finding more winners like this one!

Tortilla chip crusted chicken tenders (with honey yogurt dip)

Image
I buy tortilla chips to make nachos and something inevitably happens-  all the 'good' chips get picked out, leaving broken ones and crumbs behind.     The bag then gets shuffled around the cabinet, usually smashing what's left to bits.   I ran across this recipe on the She Knows site and thought it would be perfect to use up what's always left behind.

No gluten issues in our family, so I went with regular AP flour.   I should really wear my glasses shopping, because I managed to buy vanilla greek yogurt instead of plain, and the resulting dip was a little sweet.   Jake loved it, even with the red tinge from the chili powder and the bits of dried cilantro.  

I thought the chicken itself needed a bit more than just salt and pepper, but it was good combined with the dipping sauce, and Tim enjoyed his dipped into Ken's honey mustard dressing.
