Crispy Peanut Butter Chicken Fingers

For dinner tonight I decided to play around with some different flavors combinations for crispy chicken fingers. Following my new low carb eating style, it has been difficult to find different ways to make foods that are similar to high carb but are low carb. I was successful with this recipe and will definitely be making it again.


1 lb chicken breast strips
3 tbsp chunky peanut butter
3-4 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp dijon mustard
3 garlic cloves grated
1/2 a package of spicy pork rinds

Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, dijon mustard, olive oil, and garlic. Place chicken in a zip lock bag and add in peanut butter mixture, mix around so all the chicken is coated. In another zip lock bag crush up the spicy pork rinds, and pour into a bowl. Dip the chicken into the crushed pork rinds and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 min, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!

What is your favorite fake out meal?

Until Next Time!!

Camping Meals

Tomorrow we are headed off to Lake Powell for a few days. I always love going camping, and eating is always part of the fun. Sometimes it seems like we eat better while we are camping then when we are at home. Here are a couple of my favorite camping meals!!


Chorizo and Eggs are a staple. We always cook everything in one pot and then make burritos. First I cook up a bag of fresh hash browns, (I like these better then frozen), remove and set aside. Then I cook up the chorizo. Once that is cooked add in the hash browns and eggs. Top with cheese and wrap up in a tortilla!!


A favorite lunch item, whether we be at the lake on the boat or in the pines going for rides, are tortilla roll ups. These are also simple and you can use what ever ingredients you like. Here is how I make them.
Cream Cheese
Deli Turkey
Can of Diced Green Chilies

Spread the cream cheese over a tortilla , sprinkle some green chilies over the cream cheese, add a slice or 2 of turkey and then roll up. After they are rolled slice into threes. These are easily transportable and don't get soggy!

Pulled pork is a great option to take camping. I usually make mine before we go, which makes less work when your having fun. Here is how I make my pulled pork.
1 pork butt bone in
Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Chopped Onion
5-6 Cracked Garlic Cloves
Salt and Pepper

In a crock pot place the pork butt. Pour enough apple cider vinegar to cover about half of the pork. Salt and pepper the pork, and add the onion and garlic over the top. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, remove bone and shred.

I usually let the pork cool down before I shred up the meat. I put the meat in zip lock bags to take with us. We usually use the meat for different things, pulled pork sandwiches with bbq sauce, quesdillas on the grill, and it is also good pasta salad!

I would love to hear everyone's camping meal recipes! Comment them on my blog or add them to the Facebook page, .
