First Day Home & New Recipe

So today is the first day of my work from home project.  Don't have the project yet and kinda not stressing on that really.  It was nice to not be in a rush this morning even when I woke up like clockwork as if I had somewhere to be.  Didn't do much and almost took a nap when Fedex showed up with a delivery for me.  That was more interesting than Young & the Restless which is building up to the who killed Daisy storyline and is just not intriguing.  Bold & the Beautiful took an unexpected turn when the would be newlyweds were unexpectedly reunited contrary to someone's plan.  Ehh didn't finish watching it so I can't say what happened and I know I don't super care.

I was planning on making a cloned chicken crispers recipe from Chili's but I'm all out of self-rising flour.  Ended up finding the recipe I'm going to paste below for a clone of Popeye's naked chicken strips.  I doubled it because I had a lot of chicken strips but I'd recommend reducing the salt and if you like a kick, add paprika or chili power or cayenne because on it's own it's tasty but not tangy.  Added a side of pasta and dinner is served.

Still hunting around for an affordable custom blog maker that isn't months beyond now to get one done or find a template I LOVE.  Hasn't happened yet clearly.  But it will I'm just too finicky to not hook it up and make it more me.

Deep Fried Chicken Fingers
(clone of Popeye's Naked Strips)

1 lb. chicken breast, sliced into strips
1 Tbsp (15g) Corn Starch
1 Tsp (5g) All-Purpose Flour
dash of baking powder
1.5 Tsp (8g) salt
1 Tsp (5g) black pepper
2 Tsp (10g) cajun seasoning (or onion powder, depending on taste)
1/4c water

Mix batter ingredients in medium bowl, then drop in the chicken. Stir with hand so that all strips are evenly coated. Wait about 5-10 minutes for chicken to absorb the water, pulling the batter tightly into its pores. Deep Fry at 375 until golden brown, remove and let sit for 3 minutes to allow internal moisture to "uncrisp" the batter coating, then fry again for 1 minute to vaporize said moisture. Sauce optional but not needed if batter is suitably spiced. Oh yeah, chicken fingers as diet food!
