Jalepeno Crusted Chicken

We enjoy a little kick in our life. Everything I have made so far in the short time we have  been married has been super simple! This took a few more steps but still easy as pie! :) Recipe adapted from My Life as a Mrs.! She has a wonderful blog with lots of amazing recipes! 

Here are the ingredients for the chicken! 
Kettle Cooked Jalepeno Chips--Light Buttermilk--Chicken Breasts---Cayenne Pepper-- Salt and Pepper

 I hate to be partial to a kitchen appliance, but if you have never used a Ninja, you are missing out.  Sorry Magic Bullet, The ninja is my favorite! I put the chips into the ninja until they were the consistency a little bigger than bread crumbs
 In one container you will add buttermilk, a little salt and pepper, and 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper. The other will contain your chips! 
 Chicken goes into the buttermilk like so... :) 
 And then cover with your chips! 
 And then right onto a baking sheet! Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes! 
 You can't have fried (okay baked) chicken and no french fries right? I just peeled about 5 small potatoes, washed, and cut them into the most peculiar of shapes! I have not mastered the wedge or shoe string look :) 
Here is the cast of flavors! Coat all your fries with a little olive oil and then use whatever flavoring you like.  We are in the spicy mood for dinner tonight so I chose salt and pepper and our favorite seasoning "Slap Ya Mama!" Just a warning, there is a regular version of this and a HOT and let me just tell you that the HOT is suuuper Hot. We like the kick, but we use the regular one! Cook these at 350 for 15-20 mins but you have to watch and turn them a little! 

Last component of our dinner was an Avocado Cream Sauce! For this I used about 1/2 cup of light Sour Cream, one Avocado, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, a handful of cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste! 
 All into the food processor!! 

TADA!! Baked Jalepeno Crusted Chicken, Oven Baked Fries with Avocado Cream Sauce! 

And Don't forget your Shiner!
