Thanks to QVC for sponsoring this post featuring “skinny” Cornflake Chicken Tenders! You’re going to love this chicken breaded in crispy cornflakes and baked in the oven!
I’ve always been a bit of a scaredy cat, especially at night. When I lived alone in college or when Matt used to travel for work, I hated to be home alone. I always turned on QVC because it felt like I had someone there with me! When you watch enough QVC, you start to feel like the hosts are your friends. David Venable has always been my favorite because his warm, fun personality is irresistible.
Imagine how excited I was to have the opportunity to test a recipe from David’s new cookbook: Back Around the Table: An “In the Kitchen with David” Cookbook. This beautiful cookbook features comfort food at its best with irresistible recipes like Banana-Peanut Butter French Toast, Sunday Pot Roast, Smoked Brisket, Five-Cheese Fifteen-Minute Mac’ n’ Cheese, and Mimi’s Blackberry Cobbler.
You know I love comfort food, but I don’t like to feel too guilty about what I eat. That’s why I was especially drawn to David’s Light and Bright chapter. It’s still full of flavorful, satisfying dishes, but they are lightened up a bit. Take this Skinny Fried Chicken for example. It is juicy on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside but is very low in fat! Tender chicken is marinated in buttermilk and coated in a spiced cornflake mixture. Bake it on a wire rack, and you are on your way to wonderful “fried” chicken that never touched any oil!
David shares stories and anecdotes about his life, family, and childhood along with the recipes, making this book a great read. The recipes are easy to follow and include many beautiful photos to inspire you. Back Around the Table would make a perfect holiday gift for your friends and family who love to cook. You might want to pair it with a pressure cooker because his Quick and Easy chapter is specifically written for pressure cookers. You know I love quick and easy, but I don’t actually have one of those. Now I know what to put on my Christmas list!
