1st Day at Cooking Camp

11 07 2011

Today was my first day at camp at Young Chefs Academy. The theme for this week was Restaurateur, and and today was Asian food day. We made vegetable fried rice, oven fried chicken with orange sauce, and Chinese tea cakes. When I get the recipes at the end of the camp, I’ll post all of them, but for now I’ll give you the recipe for the oven fried chicken nuggets. It’s super easy.

Put flour in a large ziploc bag and crushed corn flakes in another. wisk together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water and put it in a shallow bowl. Cut 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast into nugget size pieces and put them in the flour bag. Shake to coat. Put them in the egg and toss with a fork to coat. Put them in the corn flake bag and shake again. Place them on a sheet pan and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes.

They might not seem like they’ll be that great, but they are! Seriously. Try them.
