I discovered this site via Slashdot the other day, and given my current fixation on cooking geekery via Alton Brown, I find it pretty cool: Cooking For Engineers. I especially like the nifty recipe tables… very creative use of HTML tables.
My favorite show on Food Network is Good Eats—it’s entertaining, informative, and quirky, all due to its host/creator, Alton Brown. So after reading the story on Alton Brown in this month’s Wired, I figured it was high time to blog some links.
So, in addition to his site, which I linked to above, it’s interesting to note that he has a blog.
This is a recipe I came up with recently for my wife: Graham cracker chicken.
Ingredients (per chicken breast):
- 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 3 squares of graham crackers
- 1 tsp. sugar
- ¼ tsp. salt
- Dash nutmeg
- 1 tbsp. yellow mustard
- 1 tsp. honey
- Dash lemon juice
- Drop of vanilla
- Optional: grated cheese (parmesan will do)
Directions: Mix the liquid ingredients together in a shallow dish. Crush the graham crackers and add the dry ingredients into a separate shallow dish. Dip the chicken breast into the liquid mixture, coating thoroughly, then bread completely with the graham cracker mix. Place on a greased shallow roating pan and put into a 350° oven. Bake at least 30 minutes.
Optional: Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese before baking. Experiment with other ingredients; you can replace the yellow mustard and honey with 1 tbsp. honey mustard (duh!), for instance.
