Frito Chicken with Honey Mustard Sauce


Frito Chicken
 Ok. This is not a gourmet meal and not the type of entree I usually prepare. No Thank You Boy came home from school and announced, "Fritos are really good." Wow! I'll alert the media with that news flash. This revelation was realized at his school lunch table where numerous foods are swapped each day. Being the unadventurous eater of the family, he is the first one to say, "No Thank You!" to 75% of what is offered at the dinner table. When he proclaimed his new found affinity for Fritos (he is really going out on a limb here), I decided to add the corn chip to my dinner entree.

In honor of today being National Corn Chip Day (who would have thought they would have their own day?), I am posting my recipe for No Thank You Boy's Frito Chicken. My Oldest and My Middle One reviewed the chicken as "OK." I thought it was good, not great. I recommend it sliced on top of a salad with honey Dijon dressing. As for No Thank You Boy ... he loved it!!! He stated that is tasted like McDonald's Chicken Nuggets. I guess that is a good review. Especially if you are a 10-year old boy who happens to like chicken nuggets. He ate it for dinner 2 nights in a row. A big thumbs up from him.
