Southern Crafted Goodness

Hi folks! I’m back with another product review!

This one is really special to me given that the company, House Autry, is based out of North Carolina.

I grew up with my grandma using House Autry products, so to be selected to review their breading and hush puppy mixes was a really precious moment for me!

I decided to make Homemade Chicken Strips and Chicken Fried Pork Chops.

Yesterday, I made the Chicken Strips according to the directions for oven fried chicken that can be found on the side of the box.  I really liked that the recipe had an oven preparation option since I prefer to bake my meats over frying them and if you’ve followed my blog at all you know I’m looking to incorporate as many healthy options into our eating habits as possible.  Simply put — baking was a win!

The pork chops were also pretty simple. My husband assisted with this evening’s meal (and by “assisted” I mean, made the whole meal– I was beyond tired and went to the bedroom to do some work, only to end up falling asleep — laptop in hand– while he was cooking).

Now, I’ll be honest here.  I know I just said I like to be healthy and I prefer to bake items over frying them, and while that IS TRUE, the North Carolina girl in me still loves a good fried pork chop!  My husband will normally grill them for us as a healthier alternative, but I wanted to test out the breading mix on the pork chops, so that led us to this recipe experiment.

First he took the chops and breaded them using a zip lock bag and the chicken breading mix.

Then he fried them in vegetable oil on medium high heat until browned on both sides.

He served these along with Black Eyed Peas and French Cut Green Beans.
