Chicken and Squash

Here is a recipe easy enough the girls made it for us tonight:


I had them beat three eggs, adding rosemary and thyme to the egg mixture.

Then I had them crush some corn cereal because we were almost out of gluten free bread crumbs. To that, we added chopped onions from food storage, parsley, garlic powder, chili powder, and paprika.

They dipped chicken tenderloins in the egg mixture, then the cereal mixture, then double dipped again into the egg and again the cereal.

Then they cut up squash and zucchini, doing the same to it, and layering it over the chicken. This keeps the chicken really nice and moist!

On top, I had them sprinkle a layer of Parmesan cheese, and then spread some shredded cheese for good measure.


We covered it in foil, and baked it at 375 for about an hour. Easy-peasy, healthy, and delicious.

And hearty enough to fill up the grownups after fast Sunday!



About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.

  1. No, I don’t want to talk about chicken, although I have mine thawing on the counter too. Just want you to know I look at your site often, and now I see you are back battling more health concerns. The Lord knows all. He loves you. You are his precious daughter and He knows your name.
    love you.
