Chicken
  1. 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. 1 cup cornstarch
  4. 2 large eggs, beaten
  5. 1/4 cup canola, vegetable or coconut oil
Sauce
  1. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  2. 4 tablespoons ketchup
  3. 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  4. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  5. 1 teaspoon garlic salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Put the chicken into the bag with the cornstarch and seal, tossing to coat the chicken.
  3. Whisk the eggs together in a shallow pie plate. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until very hot and rippling. Dip the cornstarch-coated chicken pieces in the egg and place them carefully in a single layer in the hot skillet.
  4. Cook for 20-30 seconds on each side until the crust is golden but the chicken is not all the way cooked through (this is where it's really important to have a hot skillet/oil). Place the chicken pieces in a single layer in a 9X13-inch baking dish and repeat with the remaining chicken pieces.
  5. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour over the chicken. Bake for one hour, turning the chicken once or twice while cooking to coat evenly with sauce. Serve over hot, steamed rice.
Notes
  1. If you like extra sauce, double the sauce ingredients!

 After coating your chicken pieces you will then fry them in oil. The first time I made this recipe, I could not believe that you coat your chicken in cornstarch.

After all your chicken pieces are fried, place them into a baking dish and mix the sauce ingredients together.

An Easy Way to Play Card Games with Kids

My kids love to play games but card games are always a challenge because they can not hold the cards in there little hands. Then for my daughter’s birthday my mom bought her some playing card holder. I had never heard for these before but my aunt had told my mom about them because they use them with their grand kids. And let me tell you this is an easier way to play card games with kids or an easier way to hold playing cards for anyone because you don’t have to.

Easy way to play card games with kids

The card holder that we have are the large playing card holder or there is also these smaller playing card holder. We have loved our card holders. Here are some of my kids favorite card games that we play.

 

UNO Attack: This is my game from my younger years but my 5 & almost 3-year-old love this game. It’s a family favorite around our house.

 


Old Maid, Crazy 8’s, War and Fish Card Games: This comes in a storage tin which is great to keep the games all in one place. We really like the illustrations on the cards. Our GO Fish cards almost need to be replaced because they are used daily.

 

 

With Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to share some of our favorite cards games that we play with our kids. Do you have any favorites? We are always looking for new games to play…
