For Monday, April 4th, 2011
Today is Walk Around Things Day. It is an important day to avoid problems and risks, by simply walking around the potential problem. You wouldn't walk under a ladder, would you? Then, it is also wise to walk around objects, especially those that pose risk or danger.
Walk around things can also be used figuratively. It is also wise to walk around, or avoid, topics issues, and problems that are sticky, may provoke an argument, or are not readily solved.
If ever was a day to Walk Around Things, today is that day.
4 teaspoons dijon mustard
4 slices ham
4 slices swiss cheese
1/2 cup flour
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Season flour with salt and pepper. Beat egg lightly with 1 teaspoon water. Line up a plate with flour, a shallow dish with beaten egg, and a plate with bread crumbs. One by one, roll each piece in flour to coat, then dip in egg, coating completely, and roll in bread crumbs, pressing crumbs into egg coating. Press edges together and roll each piece as it is finished in a sheet of waxed paper. Place chicken pieces on a tray and refrigerate for one hour.
Heat enough peanut oil in a large frying pan so that it comes up half way. Fry chicken pieces, two at a time, in hot oil, until browned evenly on all sides; about 2 minutes each side. Remove from oil, drain on paper towel and place in a non stick baking dish. Bake at 350F degrees for 15 minutes.
