really quick

this is pretty silly, and not rocket science, but i tried a little something different with chicken tonight, and i thought it turned out pretty tasty.  i figured i'd share.

i haven't been going to the store very much because it's just been me and the two girls, so i've just been making due with what's in the freezer/pantry.  i knew i had chicken, but didn't know what to do with it.  i decided i wanted to lightly bread it, but wasn't sure how else to season it.  

i just grabbed the first things i saw in the fridge.  okay, really simple:  2 eggs, put in a few spoon fulls of curry paste, and a dollop or two of sour cream.  

season the bread crumbs with some italian seasoning or whatever might float your boat.  

salt and pepper the chicken breasts on both sides, dip in the curry mixture, and dredge through the bread crumbs.  use a dish that keeps the chicken pieces close together, i think that, with the sour cream keeps them from being dry.  

okay, so once they're in the baking dish, i used a piece of munster cheese for each piece of chicken and covered the top.  cover the dish with tin foil, and cook at 350 for 30 minutes.  uncover and cook for 30 more.  though, i actually pulled ours out a little early.  

they ended up having a nice crunch on the outside, and really had the spice from the curry paste.  i served them over a little pile of left over marinara noodles, and i thought they were quite tasty:)  

what are your last minute pantry favorites?
