You can’t beat these quick and easy chicken strips, packed with flavor and flash baked to lock in all the moist, tender lean chicken. And the jalapeno nacho flavor doesn’t hurt either!
Going back to work after a vacation or a long weekend is always hard. Going on vacation is easy, but coming back? Not as easy. I love coming home and always depend on easy recipes to help me get back into the swing of things. That’s why I always go the Comfort Food Route when I’m in a pinch, and chicken strips always top the list.
As much as I love vacations, it’s nice to come home – especially when it’s to a 90 pound bouncing lab! But I love looking back and reliving my fun experiences, like the one that I had in Miami at BlogHer Food and with my friends at Kernel Season’s!
Cassie, Jasmin and I had a blast making it rain seasoning at the conference, sharing out love of these flavor shakers! We had some great blogging friends get in on it, too! BHF is like a yearly reunion for bloggers to learn, talk and share experiences together. And we lived it up, as you do when you’re in Miami. You always apparently dodge tornados!! I had no idea that we would be right in the middle of a torrential thunder and lightening storm with tornado touchdown!
Once Mother Nature relented, we made sure to maximize our time in Miami, doing what food bloggers do – eating! We made sure to stop at some of the best that Miami had to offer, including at the top rated fried chicken restaurant, Yardbird. I’m still dreaming of my Pear-a-Gansett below! Then there was our Cuban Chicken dinner from Havana 1957. Can anyone ship that to me directly?
These trips are as much about work as they are about being with friends. We work hard in our every day lives, and even though we joke about making friends on the internet, we have all developed some very true and lasting friendships. Even if our mother’s warned us to never trust a person behind a computer screen. See Mom, they are REAL!!
And in amongst the sessions, the learning, the laughs and the food – we even made it to the beach.
If you want to see more of my trip – catch up on my Instagram Feed! And for even more fun, catch up on some of our other shenanigans with Cassie’s Recap. Oh, did I not mention our 90’s Elevator Dance Parties? Yeah, we had those too!
