Delta Faucet and Oven-Baked "Fried" Chicken

Last Fall kicked off with such excitement as I got to visit the "Holy City" of Charleston, South Carolina for the Taste of Charleston.  This event is such an Annual highlight and I was so honored to be working with Southern Living again.  This year, Delta Faucet invited us to be sponsored as well.  It was a total dream come true!

Southern Living is pretty much part of my DNA.  And with all of my University days in South Carolina, and my Southern rearing, I was so honored to be back in Charleston for this event.  Delta Faucet is special to me because my very first paid blogging work was done for Delta Faucet and I learned of the fabulous and all-American quality performing products for your home.

So not only did my family and I get to go back to Charleston with Southern Living and Delta Faucet, they asked me if I wouldn't mind Cooking!  Yes, do  mind, this Southern Girl, cooking up a fun recipe and sharing with y'all!!!  Well, since Cooking and Homemade Cooking is in my DNA, as well. I was way up for the task!  This is my life!

So we tested out the fabulous Delta Pilar Touch O2 Technology Faucets and promptly feel in love with them.  These are dynamic.  We were shocked at how simple they are to use.  And how handy for Moms and Chefs to touch the faucet and have it turn on and off. Convenient!  And they are so beautiful in three different finishes!  I LOVED the Chrome, and the Bronze.  Cooper was cool. However, we chose the Bronze and give it a 5 star rating!

Norman King, Author of The Way to FRY, taught us so much about ways to lightly 
fry chicken, fish, and various other options to making down-home Southern cooking 
without all of the heavy grease.  Yes, We LOVED meeting him. He was 
super nice and he made cooking up specialties a real fun event. 

Even our boys were amazed.  Here they are test driving and 
choosing our faucet.  Delta Faucet spoiled us with our own!  And no green 
with envy allowed, because one Reader will be the Fortunate WINNER of a 
Delta Touch O2 Technology Faucet valued at $749.00.  Stay tuned for the GIVEAWAY 
details next week! 

The Taste of Charleston is a Southern Tradition and it is so exciting and fun.  You should check it out this year.  2014 is underway.  Meet us at Boone Hall Plantation this Fall for this kind of fun.

Finding myself so in my element at the Taste of Charleston, I was thrilled to meet 
Charleston Author interviewed last year.  Carmen was delightful and so talented
she has such talent.  Now, I want to order all of my plants from Southern Living 
Plant Collection and just ditto Carmen's creations and designs.   See, there 
is Norman King in the background.  He had fun with the crowds.

So my husband and I were so happy with our Delta Faucet, he had it installed for me and we were ready to create in the kitchen..  

In honor of The Way to FRY, I wanted to "Fry" with my own Gluten Free lifestyle. So I took 
Norman King's inspiration and spun my own amazing creation.  Here is a picture of the ingredients. See recipe below.  

It is so nice to cook and wash hands or get water like this…. awesome Touch O2 Technology 
by Delta Faucet.   Here we go with the rest of the recipe fun. 

Here is my recipe

Southern Girl Oven-Baked Chicken 

8 Chicken Breasts
1 1/2 c. Mushrooms
1 Lime
1 c. Almond Flour
4 T. Butter
1 T. Olive Oil
2. T. Red Wine Vinegar
Spices, oh my Spices: this where you "add what you love" :)
I generously added these.

Sea Salt
Garlic Powder
Red Pepper Flakes
Rosemary (because I am on a Rosemary kick)

Preheat Oven for 350 degrees.  Olive Oil spray a Pyrex Baking Dish.  Lay chicken in the pan, drizzle melted butter over the chicken. sprinkle evenly, all ingredients except for the Lime and Mushrooms.

Then, place Mushrooms (rinse first) and Lime on top.  Drizzle with the Olive Oil and Bake for 30 minutes uncovered.  Remove from oven and cool. Enjoy with a lovely salad and steamed rice.

My tween boys deemed this their FAVORITE EVER!  So it's in the weekly rotation!  Thank you Southern Living!
