Tonight, Montreal Chicken by Grill Mates.

Boneless chicken breasts dredged in 50% flour, 50% Montreal Chicken, and fried in olive oil, with some Left over Rice a Roni as a side, makes for a quick and easy, tasty meal.

How's the breading to chicken ratio? My mom likes a product from Costco, but I find one has to consume a lot of breading goop to get just a little chicken.

funny that you should ask, because I was considering that while I was eating it/them. I think that one should use some baking soda, or corn starch to make the breading fluffy. The pieces were fluffy, but inconsistent. Some were almost all breading, and others were pieces of breaded chicken.

Your point though is well taken, the picture of the plate I presented above was, what was left over from the previous night. One $13 dish was enough for two plates. All that breading was very filling.

Perhaps panko bread crumbs are the secret.
Yeah, but nope.
If I use breading:
Half the time I use panko, the other half I use seasoned breadcrumbs.

I typically dredge in seasoned flour, then egg wash, then panko or seasoned breadcrumbs. I think the magic to get that thick breading that has small bubbles in it is to use baking soda. I've never done it so I do not know.

The fixins for Poppy's blue cheese burger:

Aged Danish blue cheese
some iceberg lettuce
a couple of slices of Jersey Tomato
some thin sliced red onion, pickled in Red Wine Vinegar, and Grenadine.

The 1/3rd lb burger was fried with some sweet Vandalia onion.
And accompanied with cucumber and red onion salad, with sour cream and dill.

Around here this would be a fifteen dollar burger.

Something from a box that takes as long to stir as to boil the shell noodles. It's called "suddenly pasta salad". The flavor is "bacon and ranch".

We mix in canned tuna, chunk imitation crab meat chunks, freshly shredded new york cheddar and mayo.

Takes like 10 minutes to boil the noodles, a few minutes to mix the ingredients while the noodles boil, then mix the combo for a few minutes. Let sit overnight or eat while still warm. We cook it the night before.

Sometimes I mix peas in mine. Sometimes I'll chop up some lettuce and mix it in a bowl of this stuff. Sometimes I add shredded baby carrots.

The other day I had lunch at an I talian joint that served the steak n cheese sub with blue cheese.
Not bad.
They had a steak n cheese hoagie and a philly steak n cheese too but I opted for steak n cheese sub to try the blue cheese.

The next time you are a real Italian deli and getting a sandwich, try an Italian, with pickled eggplant, and fresh mozz. Most places don't have pickled eggplant, but if you see it there, you know that you are in a real Italian deli.

The place was run by folks from south of the border. It's kinda strange to be in an I talian joint and everybody is speaking Spanish.

Eh, it was ok. I liked the 'spike' the bleu cheese provided.
I take my "team" out to lunch once a month and we tried this place for a change. A government complex is nearby and we kept seeing the parking lot loaded with government vehicles so we figured it must be good.
It turns out government employees get a special discount.
