YO OKAY SO I JUST WANT TO SAY I’M EXCITED SO I MAY USE SOME SLANG AND I’M SORRY BUT I’M AMAZING ONCE IN A BLUE MOON!!! So, I made dinner the other night. I know that’s not the most exciting thing ever, but hear me out okay. Up in my cupboard is some Red Lobster biscuit mix, like three boxes worth. If you’ve never had them, they’re the closest thing Canadian’s can have to the breaded crack that is Olive Garden bread. 10/10 would recommend to every person I’ve ever met who can eat bread.

That’s what the box looks like. I just bought it from Walmart

I wanted to make chicken nuggets for dinner. I was feeling twelve at heart and wanted nuggets and fries, and I’ve made that before, however I had no breadcrumbs left. My mentality, make the biscuits, put them through a food processor and BOOM, breadcrumbs. My lovely boyfriend was all, “why not just wrap the chicken in the batter mix?”
Honestly that was the best idea in the whole world. So naturally I had to try it. Biscuit mix is so sticky, and I’m saying that. I’ve handled a lot over my few years of life, and I can tell you, biscuit mix is sticky. I could not get it to hold chicken and not my hand to save my dang life.

Okay, new plan. It’s basically just bread right? So out came the flour, and then attempt number two. Wrapping bits of chicken is apparently really difficult for me? Roommate suggested I wrap them like a dumpling and then roll them out like a meatball.

One and two in the top left look so bad!

It took attempt three to really get the shape I wanted for these nuggets, but I had so much fun! It took awhile of rolling out and flouring each biscuit ball, but holy frick was it fun! I laid out 24 of those bad boys, and set them to bake.
I got to use my first thermometer for checking the temperature for the chicken, which was super neat, and then I made the fries after, since I only have one tray and accidentally misplaced my other two really nice ones.

Finished product!

All in all, dinner was really good. Homemade honey mustard was made, and a really yummy kale salad to go with everything. Team work made a dream work. I am so impressed with how that turned out in the end and as much as I’d love to do it again, that was way too much bread. I still have one box of those biscuits left, so I think I’ll just make them to compliment a different meal later.

So, yeah, that was my dinner adventure. I was so excited by what I had made, and I wanted to share it with the world. The biscuits come with a garlic butter sauce mix, which we used the next day to spice up pasta. All in all, it was fun, but that’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks for reading!
