I made these tonight, but as I was reading the recipe, I realized the ingredients were pretty much the same as I have in the Like Lawry's Taco Seasoning mix ( recipe under MISC, I believe)...postedf by DebB on the old boards and I moved it over. It's one of those recipes I like to doubvle or quadruple, knowing I will be using that seasoning steadily. Being sugar free... it's a no-worry seasoning I can use on chickken, pork or beef......even in soups or sauces.
Tonight....I melted butter to coat the strips before coating in the seasoned parm, cut an organic breast into strips, mixed parm with the taco seasoning, and baked as directed. DH LOVED it! This would be awesome chicken on a taco salad!. I chose okra salad as the side:
wash okra and remove tops, slice and fry in oil, then drain. Lightly salt. ( I use sea salt)
While the okra is frying, slice some sweet onion very thin into strips, cut tomato or cherry or grape tomatoes into small chunks in a bowl with a lid. Add about 1 Tbs dried parsley and 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. Put the lid on and shake gently to coat. Place in the fridge to chill while the okra cooks. Gently turn the bowl a couple more times ( when you think about it) to make sure the vinegar is coating the vegies well to marinate.
Drain ALL the vinegar from the tomato and onion and toss the okra with these JUST before serving. You can season to taste with more salt, if needed.
This salad was such a favorite with all the family when I was growing up, my mom and aunt would try and make it after all the kids were in bed ( 8 of us )...only....... one of us usually smelled that wonderful fried okra smell ( made FUNKY with cornmeal coating, of course), and we'd come dragging in 1 or 2 sleepy heads at a time, wanting some too. It never lasted long ( probably why they opted to make it late at night) ! LOL
It's possible to get that same enjoyment without the cornmeal coating...so give this one a try and see what you think. Regular white vinegar can also be used. sandi
