Crunchy Panko-Crusted Cod



Ingredients

    1 pound Cod fillets
    ¼ cup flour, unbleached or all-purpose
    1 egg, beaten
    ¾ cup Panko bread crumbs
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    ½ cup olive oil, or enough to cover the bottom of a large frying pan

Instructions

    Lay out the flour, beaten egg and Panko bread crumbs on three (3) separate plates, or shallow pans.
    Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. (This should only take a few minutes, watch the pan and be careful not to burn the oil).
    Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper.
    Dip the seasoned fish in the flour, then egg and then press the fish into the Panko bread crumbs, coating the fish evenly on all sides.
    Place the fish carefully in the hot pan and reduce the heat to medium, but keep it at a sizzle. When both sides are evenly browned, remove the fish from the hot oil and serve immediately.

Notes
When the first side is nicely browned (about 2-3 minutes) and the fish is turned over, you may need to reduce the heat to low, but keep the oil at a sizzle. Reducing the heat will avoid the fish from burning, and will cook it evenly all the way through.

Valentine's Day Peek-A-Boo Pound Cake




Ingredients

    2 (16 ounce) boxes Betty Crocker Pound Cake mix
    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, divided, softened
    4 eggs, divided
    1 1/3 cups milk, divided
    red food coloring

Vanilla Icing

    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    2 1/2 tablespoons milk
    1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

    Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 9×5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
    Prepare your first pound cake: combine 1 box of cake mix, 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) softened butter, 2 eggs, and 2/3 cup milk in a large bowl. Whisk together with an electric mixer or by hand. Add in your food coloring until you reach the desired color (I think I used 25 drops.)
    Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 8-10 minutes less than instructed on box (about 50 minutes.) Let cool, remove from pan and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Cut cold cake into slices the thickness of your cookie cutter. Cut heart shapes from the slices. Set aside.
    Prepare your second box of pound cake mix the same as the first, except omit the food coloring. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray and pour just barely enough batter to cover the bottom. Align your heart cut-outs down the center, keeping them tightly together. Poor the remaining batter over the heart cut-outs in the pan, making sure to cover the sides and tops. (Careful the batter doesn’t overflow.) Bake according to the directions on the box, about 1 hour. Let cool when done.
    Meanwhile, prepare your icing. In a medium bowl, mix all of your ingredients together until combined and creamy. Add more powdered sugar if it appears too runny or more milk if it seems too stiff, until you reach the consistency you like.
    Remove baked and cooled pound cake from pan and top with icing. Let set; cut into slices and enjoy! Adorable, right!?

Chicken:

2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 C milk
3 C cheddar cheese, grated
1 t dried parsley

Sauce:
1 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
2 T sour cream
2 T butter

How to make this recipe

1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks.
2. In a small food processor grind up the ritz crackers.
3. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans. Toss the 1/4 t salt and 1/8 t pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine.
4. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk…then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Some of it will fall off when you add it to the cracker crumbs, don’t worry about it.
Press the cheesy chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in. By the time you are coating the last piece of chicken, the dish you are using for the crumbs will be full of cheese. Don’t let it get you down. Once the cheese melts in the oven it will adhere nicely to the crumbs and the crackers.
