An A+ Dinner From The Blogs!

This dinner was a winner!!!
I love trying out new recipes, especially when I am stuck in a rut. Tonight I went to some reliable sources, other food bloggers! I knew I wanted to make baked panko breaded chicken legs and hasselback potatoes.

Well The Pioneer Woman had posted before of some chicken legs, and thankfully I had all the ingredients on hand! (Lately I am loving plain yogurt with a dollop of fruit preserves mixed in) I skinned the chicken legs, and also added parsley and pepper to the panko. I had to bake the legs forever! Well they had to share the oven with the potatoes, so I kept rotating the two trays. Finally I just stuck them under the broiler to brown them up. From start to finish this meal took me 2 hours until we were eating. Good thing I started it early.

For the potatoes, I had to find a refresher, haha, I've seen them made before but have never made them myself. Orangette has some great ones posted, but I changed them up a little. I used russet potatoes, minced garlic, grated onions (*tip- grate an onion instead of dicing and you'll get the small pieces and juice!), parsley, salt and pepper.

I rate this dinner 10*! The chicken had great crunch, and a little tang from the yogurt, I had to stop myself before I ate too much! The potatoes were great also, the bottoms became crunchy almost like a potato chip. Everyone loved it. Delish! I have to remember to go thank them for posting those recipes!

TIP: use the long handles of 2 spoons to create a cutting guide for Hasselback potatoes

Pin It!

Yum! This looks good. I just found your blog the other day, and made the oatmeal pancakes for dinner tonight (you know, breakfast for dinner). They were delicious! Can't wait to try more recipes.
