Baked Chicken, Green Beans and Noodles

I don't know about you but at some point during the summer I have to turn to some kind of comfort food.  That is what I did tonight.  We just picked a whole bunch of green beans from our garden and since they were fresh they had to be cooked.

Green Beans
I cooked the green beans in a crock pot.  Wash beans, cut ends off and cut in half if needed.  Add to a crock pot and add water to just cover them.  Add a few pieces of bacon or fatback to the crock pot.  Turn crock pot on low and cook for about 8 hours.  Test the green beans from time to time, you want them soft.  At this point add a little bit of salt if needed.  Use a slotted spoon to serve with.

Baked Chicken
Boneless Chicken Breasts
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika
Salt and Pepper
2 Eggs
Take flour, paprika, salt and pepper and add to a small dish and mix.  In another dish add the eggs and beat.   Take a chicken breast and lay it between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.  Use a flat edge of a meat tenderizer to flatten the breasts to about 1/2 inch.  Dredge breasts in egg and then into flour mixture.  Add to a large baking dish that has been oiled.  Place chicken into a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for about 30 minutes.

To add to this meal I found a partial bag of noodles.  I cooked them and added a little butter.
