Just Say No - But Not to Nana's Chicken!

I am really, really bad at saying no. 

I always end up saying yes to way too many things, and then get myself worked up into total disaster mode, and then I have to blow it all up and start over.  That's where I am right now, so I haven't had time to blab about food, or try any new recipes.  BUT, I just got a note from a friend who gave this one thumbs up after having it tonight - it's a really good recipe I tried for the first time from my friend Marla's freezer meal exchange.  Give it a try!

Nana’s Chicken
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
½ t cayenne red pepper
1 ½ t dried mint
1 t salt
1 ½ cups cornflake crumbs
½-1 c. olive oil
3 t granulated garlic
2 t black pepper
To prepare for freezing: Combine all dry ingredients in Ziploc bag. Add oil and mix thoroughly. Add chicken and mix to coat all breasts. Freeze. Package cornflake crumbs in separate Ziploc bag.
To cook: Thaw in refrigerator overnight to allow breasts to marinate. Dip in cornflake crumbs. Line baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
