Last week I had another baking/cooking afternoon with Alex. We have never attempted a savoury dish we usually bake biscuits or cakes, so I decided to increase our repertoire. Alex is a very faddy eater at home although he would never say no to eating fast food especially KFC chicken. I asked Alex if we should make our own spicy chicken strips! Surprisingly he was really up for it so I sort of made up a recipe. We cut chicken breasts into strips, dipped them into beaten egg and then into crushed cornflakes. For extra flavour we added paprika, chilli flakes, ground black pepper and a tiny touch of salt to the crushed cornflakes.
The chicken strips were then cooked in the oven for about 25 minutes turning once half way through cooking. They were delicious, Alex was so surprised and impressed with the chicken he couldn't stop eating them which was an added bonus.
The cakes had risen beautifully and whilst they were cooling he made the butter cream. He started to search for my sieve so that he could sieve the icing sugar. I said he didn't need to as I don't usually bother but Mary Berry does so who am I to disagree. It's funny to watch him follow every instruction to the letter, reading every instruction once or twice to be sure he has got it right.

The next day Vicky phoned for the chicken recipe as Alex wanted to make the spicy chicken strips for everyone’s tea, followed by his chocolate cake which he sadly took home.
Hope you have a good day and a special hello to my new followers – thank you
