I am hungry again...
...how can you be smiling, singing...

Well, it ain't Kentucky... vegan buttermilk as a wash. Once that's done, I've been dredging in a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, paprika and panko. I didn't quite get the salt content as high as it ought to have been; the chicken was a little bland. Also, I've discovered that adding panko to the breading just results in scorched panko. So I'll be omitting that step for tonight's batch. Still, with a little tweaking, I think I've got a quick and easy recipe for a lot of chicken.

Definitely one of my more successful yeast breads baking bread. I found last year's iteration of this bread recipe was sweeter than I would have preferred, so I modified things this time and found the results were spectacular! I used a half and half blend of unbleached all-purpose flour and whole wheat all-purpose flour, 1 ½ tablespoons of sugar, 4 ½ tablespoons of yeast, and all other ingredients in the quantities listed. I used a dough hook to knead the bread, and didn't bother with a second rise; instead, I proofed the dough in the greased loaf pan which I baked the bread in. Once it had risen, I popped it into our toaster oven, on the convection setting, for about 20 minutes. The bread turned out really well and not sweet at all. I'll have to try making this again.
