Fried Martian Chicken

This is a Healthier version of Fried Chicken. Omega 3 fats are a good choice. By using Olive oil and Butter you get the taste without high saturated fats. You can use an olive oil stick or promise stick in place of the butter, if you wish. Still stick to the recipe amount for the butter (2 TBSP). Otherwise the chicken will be too greasy.

3.5 lbs chicken pieces.- Pat dry
Auntie E Celestial Seasoning*
2 Tablespoon Olive oil- Robust Flavor
2 Tablespoon unsalted Butter
Fry Pan

1. Put oil and butter in pan
2. Heat pan on medium high- Heat until butter is melted
3. Add chicken skin side down. cook for 15 minutes or until skin is golden brown.
4. sprinkle lightly with celestial seasoning, turn chicken over turn heat down to Medium , continue cooking for 15-20 minutes until no longer pink.
5 remove from pan and serve.

Two Moon Toast

Mars has two small moons they are very close to the surface. Phobos has a 22 kilometer diameter. It is located 9,378 kilometers from Mars. Deimos is 23,459 kilometers from Mars surface. Deimos is 12 kilometer in diameter. Hall discovered the moons in 1877.

This is a New version of French toast. My family help me name it. Their thought was there are Two Moons in the Mars sky. We had it for dinner. Now on Mars you could eat it before the sunrise or after the sunset. There would be two moons up both times. Hence the Two Moon Toast.

1 loaf of Sourdough Bread- sliced thin
4 eggs
1/4 cup coffee mate Italian Sweet Cream creamer
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoon Powdered Sugar
nonstick Griddle heated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

1. Mix the eggs, creamer, vanilla and powdered sugar in a square pan until well mixed.
2. Dip bread both sides into egg mixture
3. Cook on griddle for approximately 2 minutes per side until light brown.
4. store in heated 150 degree Fahrenheit, to keep warm.
5. We serve it with Pure maple syrup.

serve 6 people.

note: to be more health friendly: you can use 3/4 cup eggbeater with yolk + 1/3 cup Eggbeater Whites in place of 4 eggs. I found using both types of eggbeater gives it the same flavor.
