The easiest and the simplest way of cooking chicken is by frying it. Children absolutely love and adore this classic dish. Here are some easy fried chicken recipes for mom’s out there who want to make fried chicken more interesting than the usual.

Easy Garlic Fried Chicken

Garlic fried chicken is one of easy chicken recipes that is really tasty and loved by many. These are the ingredients: garlic powder, ground black pepper, salt, paprika, flour, milk, egg, oil, and skinless chicken fillet. Cut the chicken as you wish. In a bowl, combine garlic powder, ground black pepper, salt, paprika, bread crumbs and flour. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk milk and eggs. Dip the chicken into the milk and eggs mixture, and then coat it with the dry mixture. Fry it in a skillet or deep fryer. Cook until the chicken is brown and tender. Drain oil using paper towels. Serve warm.

Asian Fried Chicken

Marinate the chicken in soy sauce, pepper, lemon, and garlic for at least 30 minutes (the longer, the better). After marinating, just simply fry it. Cook until the chicken is brown and tender. After, it is ready to serve!

Fried Chicken Strips with mushroom gravy

Cut chicken in strips. Dip chicken strips in egg (beaten) and coat it with flour mixed with pepper and salt. Deep fry it in a pan with hot fat or oil. Wait until the chicken browns and until it becomes crispy. For the mushroom gravy, all you have to do is simmer some chicken stock in a sauce pan under medium low heat. Add flour, salt and pepper. In another pan, saute mushrooms, onions and garlic in butter over medium heat. Combine the sauce mixture with the mushroom mixture. Stir occasionally and let it thicken. Serve the chicken strips with separate mushroom gravy.

Deep South Fried Chicken

In a large skillet, heat the shortening over moderate heat. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a brown paper lunch bag. Put enough pieces of chicken in the paper bag and shake it until coated. Repeat the procedure with all the remaining chicken. Fry them in hot oil or shortening. Lower the heat, cover and cook for twenty-five minutes. After, remove the lid and turn up the heat a little. Fry them until the chicken pieces are golden brown and crispy. Drain oil using paper towels. Serve immediately.

These recipes are simple yet they can make your chicken extra special. I am sure kids will like fried chicken more after trying these easy to do recipes.

Looking for a way to make this holiday season stand out from the rest? Start a new tradition that can get the entire family involved and allow you to save money on decorations. In between the cookie baking and gift shopping, set aside some time to make holiday crafts. There are so many simple ways to make your holiday decorations personal and it won’t cost you a ton of money.

With just a little creativity and craft supplies you can create pieces that will make your house look spectacular for the holidays and offer you the chance to create lasting memories with your loved ones. Just a few ideas to get your creativity flowing:

  • Paper Chain- Using leftover scrapbooking paper, cardstock or other heavy-weight, fade-resistant paper you can create a festive paper chain perfect for the Christmas tree, mantelpiece or staircase. Simply cut thin strips of paper and tape or glue the ends together. Keep looping paper inside your original link and create a paper chain that is as long or short as you need it. This simple craft project is ideal for small children and large groups, because you can each make your own chain and then link them all together when everyone is finished.
  • Homemade Gift Tags- Using leftover craft supplies you can create homemade gift tags for all of your gift-giving needs this year. Most gift tags from the store are impersonal and expensive. Make your own using leftover ribbon, scrapbooking paper, glitter, embellishments and pens. But be careful, you might end up designing tags that get more attention than the gift.
  • Bows – Using leftover ribbon you can create your own bows in a variety of shapes and sizes. If you get the entire family involved, you won’t have to waste money buying bows this year. Plus, everyone will appreciate the extra effort you put into making this holiday season a little more personal.
  • Ornaments – By digging through your craft supplies, you may find leftover ribbon strips, pictures, sequins, cardstock and embellishments you can use to create homemade ornaments. Make grandparents personalized ornaments with each of their grandkids or make an ornament of your new puppy for your tree. Each year you hang up your homemade ornament you will remember how much fun you had making holiday crafts with your family.
  • Ribbon Wreath- By cutting strips of different colors, patterns and sizes of ribbon you can create a homemade wreath that embodies the spirit of the holidays. Tie the ribbon strips around a bent wire hanger until the wire is completely covered. By adding different colors, you can make your ribbon wreath to match a specific room in your home. They make perfect holiday gifts and will last for years. It is a fun arts and crafts project that everyone can get everyone involved.

 

These are just a few ideas to make your holidays a little more personal. Other great holiday crafts include making gift boxes, holiday greeting cards and personalized wrapping paper. Use all your crafts supplies to create unique holiday gifts for all the people on your list.

Like many of our holidays, Passover is a great time to break out some craft materials for our children and help them make a great work of art. Not only can this teach them about the holiday, but it can help get their creative juices flowing. Here are some good craft ideas you might use to help your child celebrate Passover. While this list won’t go into the details of each project, it should be enough to get you started.

1. Greeting Card

This is perhaps one of the easiest craft ideas, and it is ideal especially for young children who might not be too coordinated yet. All you need is some construction paper and crayons, but you might want to use some glue and glitter for an even more elegant touch. You can have the child address the card to a parent, sibling, or even a friend. Teach the child how to draw the Star of David or Moses on the front of the card. You can even teach them how to write a simple Hebrew phrase.

2. Toilet Paper Moses

An empty cardboard toilet paper roll is a great craft tool which can be used as the starting basis for a figurine of a person. You could have the child make any of a number of Biblical characters, but Moses is an excellent and popular choice. The toilet paper roll will act as Moses’s body. Pipe cleaners are great for creating the arms or for fashioning his staff. You can use a small piece of brown felt for his robe. A cotton ball is great for bushy white hair. Get creative! There are many different ways to run with this idea!

3. Placemat

There are so many things a child might draw on a placemat. He could draw a biblical scene, or write out verses from the Torah. He could draw his family gathering together for a prayer or draw the Star of David. All you need for this project is a sheet of white poster board and some drawing materials. You might need some colored construction paper and glue to really spice things up. Finally, you will need some Con-Tact paper so that you can laminate the placemat when the child is finished. This is a craft item he can eat off of and truly enjoy long after the project is completed.

4. Elijah’s Goblet

According to legend, Elijah visits every Passover Seder around the world and takes a sip from the goblet of red wine left out for him. You can have your child make a beautiful goblet just for Elijah! Start with a plastic wine glass, gold tissue paper, some plastic jewels, and glue. Just shred up the tissue paper and glue it around the outside of the cup. Then add on the jewels and any other embellishments you’d like. Soon you’ll have a golden goblet which looks like it is fit for a king.

Those were just a few ideas for craft projects you might do with your child in recognition of Passover. However, there are undoubtedly many more! If you brainstorm you may be able to come up with some yourself. You may even try asking your child what they think might make a good project. Sometimes children have the best ideas. They might suggest decorating some small trash cans, such as your bathroom trash can. These are relatively inexpensive, so why not?
