I suck at pics but got me some chicken leg quarters. Rubbed butter on them added sea salt and garlic to the skin. Then cooked it in oven in a cast iron skillet. Till the skin was crispy . Then drained the juices into a pan added flour and made gravy . Then I got lazy and made stove top stuffing. But I'm a regade I used turkey stuffing not even sure what the difference is lol

Same meal more or less as described in post #3379.
It started out I wanted to do nickel sized bits of chicken tenders with broccoli flourets in a skillet with olive oil as a flavor added. Mrs Fixer wanted nickel sized chicken bits in a butter sauce with black pepper seasoning salt and rice in the skillet.

:sssh: How about both? Melted 1/2 stick of butter, mixed with 2 tbsp olive oil. Add chicken, brocolli, cook on nearly high until done. Reduce heat, add a tbsp of Lawreys black pepper seasoning salt and stir. Add rice and a few tbsp of water, crank heat back up, stir to miix well until water is gone.

Extra yummy thanks to olive oil and broccoli

Agreed.
The big flouret pieces got eaten first. That was the stuff that crumbled off of them in the photo. I was nearly finished and thought "awe sux no picture yet".
What started out as an experiment is now on the menu each week. It's quick and inexpensive. Best of all Mrs Fixer likes it.

@JimIslander, looks much more appetizing than 🐿️ How'd you bake that sweet potato?
That is a hunk of three cheese bread from our local bakery. I toasted it on the squirrel cooker while the steak rested. :)

To bake a potato, I lightly coat in oil, salt liberally, then double wrap in foil and cook on the coals. Use coals that have cooled just a bit so you don't burn the tater and do cook it evenly.

My first crack at Shake-n-Bake pork chops was a success.

With lima beans

Edges were just as crunchy and yummy.

I had a pair of nice 1" thick boneless pork chops that were on clearance for $3.14 in the freezer that needed to be cooked. A box of Shake-n-Bake in the cupboard and a can of lima beans.

Alluminum cookie sheet with 99 cent alluminum foil from the dollar store sprayed with non stick spray. An egg iin a bowl, a ziplock for the coating. Double batter the chops making sure edges also get coated by making sure plenty of egg was on them. Cooked for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, turn off oven and let cook another 10.
In the meantime boil the lima beans for 15 minutes. Turn down heat to simmer when nearly all of the water is gone. Add a half stick of butter and stir in as it melts. Add salt n pepper to taste.

The whole meal took about 45 minutes prep to table and cost about $2.75 per serving.

My mom used to make a shake n bake type coating with corn flakes. I may try that some time.

I prefer the double quarter pounder with cheese to the big Mac 👌

What's on the menu for tomorrow's Thanksgiving?
This year, like many in the past, we went overboard.

My son is bringing: Buffalo Chicken wings, mashed potatoes with gravy, calliflower, green bean casserole, and crescent rolls.

we'll add spinach/artichoke dip/spread, brussel sprouts (frozen in a sauce), sweet potato casserole (with marshmellows), honey glazed carrots, stuffing, corn bread - corn casserole, cranberry sauce, pie, and homemade rice pudding.

I have the option of baking the turkey in the oven or bringing it to a friends house to deep fry it. I'm not sure what to do.

I told my son to bring tupperware for leftovers... there will be lots!

We're going to "wing it" again this year. Pun intended.
A turkey, some biscuits, green beans, mac n cheese, mashed potatos, brownies and whatever Mrs Fixer grabs at the grocery store later today.

Make sure the turkey is completely thawed before deep fry. One year my brother in law did not know one he was frying had not and "POW"!! He was frying it on the concrete driveway and the dogs were licking concrete for days after that. He was frying 3 and it was the 3rd one so we did have turkey but so did the dogs. 👍

Deep fry will produce the juiciest turkey by far.
I inject the turkey the day before with a marinade I make. I’ve tried brining and injecting, but it was just too much. The flavor intensity was too overwhelming.

Keep the turkey under 10lbs for frying.
Bring it to room temp before frying.
Guaranteed goodness

I have no comment on the frozen fried turkey. lol
I imagine it was like a volcano spewing lava
