I've been totally MIA lately, but I have been cooking, and I have about 5 recipes to get on here soon. And I'll keep cooking! But it's Monday, and that means MONDAY MIX UP!!
I have something super easy here for you: Crispy Mix.
Shopping list: Corn flakes, ground flax seed (or wheat germ), salt, pepper, italian seasonings, paprika, onion salt (or dehydrated onion flakes) and whatever other seasonings you think would be tasty. Garlic powder would be great, I think cayanne pepper as well. Perhaps even a package of dry ranch dressing mix.
Crush the cornflakes up until you have about 3 cups. If you need to get some stress out, grab a rolling pin and beat the heck out of them. I just used my food processor.
A ziplock baggie is the best way to mix everything I think, but use what you'd like. A bowl and spoon are just fine.
Add your flax seed (or wheat germ)
and all your other spices.
Do a little shake-shake of the bag (after you seal it of course) and you're all done!!

- 3 cups crushed cornflakes
- 1 cup ground flax seed (or wheat germ)
- 3 Tbsp italian seasoning
- 1 Tbsp paprika
- 2 tsp salt (regular)
- 1 tsp onion salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
Now, here's what I made with it. Crispy Chicken. Shopping list: CHicken breasts, milk, egg, and use your crispy mix.
we're getting to be dairy free here, because of our munchkin so we used soy milk. Use whatever you have on hand!
Mix together two eggs and a dash of your milk. And create an assembly line like so. Take your chicken, dip it in the egg mixture, then into a baggie with your crispy mix. Shake it up good! you want it to cover everything.
Place them into a greased pan and cook!
Uncover it for about the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, so it gets crispy.
- 1 1/2 cups crispy mix
- 2 eggs
- dash of milk
- 3-4 chicken breasts
