BAKED BUFFALO CHICKEN MEALS IN Monica's MINUTES By Monica Sinclair I absolutely love buffalo chicken! However, I try to stay away from it since it is fried. This week, I found a recipe calling for it to baked, so I'm excited to try it. It's only six in- gredients so it's extremely easy to make. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 3/4 cup buffalo wing sauce, divided • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounc- es each) • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon • 1/2 teaspoon pepper • 1-1/4 cups panko bread crumbs DIRECTIONS 1. Pour 1/3 cup wing sauce into a shallow dish. Add chicken breasts and turn to coat. Let stand 15 min- utes or refrigerate, covered, up to 24 hours. 2. Preheat oven to 400°. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. 3. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, tarragon and pepper. Place bread crumbs and remaining wing sauce in sep- arate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in flour mixture to coat all sides; shake off excess. Dip in wing sauce, then in bread crumbs, patting to help coating adhere. 4. Place chicken on a rack in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 25 -30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°. Source: tasteof YOUTH FIRST TODAY GOING BACK TO 'NORMAL' By Christine Weinzapfel-Hayden Youth First, Inc. We have heard so much about the "new normal" over the last few months, but what is that? How are we supposed to make plans for the future when we re- ally don't know what that looks like yet? And how are we supposed to prepare our kids for a school year filled with so ma- ny unknowns? There are no perfect answers to any of these questions, because we're still being met with more questions than answers. Instead of focusing on the unknown, the best way to move forward is preparing ourselves for the things we do know. We know that as of right now schools are planning to open in the fall. This is great news for our kids who have been missing their friends and teachers. How- ever, we also know that it won't look exact- ly the same as they're used to. The CDC guidelines are going to be intense—but they're a great guide for good conversa- tion with your kids. You can initiate these conversations right now as you start your normal back to school preparations. Let kids pick out their backpacks and lunchboxes, pencils and glue sticks. If your family is choosing not to go into stores together, your kids will find it just as fun to help fill your dig- ital cart with their school supply choic- es. This simple activity creates a great opportunity to sit with your kids individ- ually and ask what things they are excit- ed about and nervous about for the com- ing school year. In addition to doing the "normal things" like buying school supplies, it's also im- portant to have frequent conversations about the things that will look dramati- cally different. One of these is the use of facemasks. It is important that you help your child practice wearing a facemask prior to the start of the school year. Give them time throughout the day where they can practice putting one on or completing a small task while wearing it to get com- fortable with this as a new habit. Talk to your children as well about the things they can do to help ensure they stay healthy during the coming school year. Talk to them about hand washing and objects they shouldn't be sharing with their friends this year, like their sup- plies or snacks. If you have a child who likes to bite their nails or chew on their fingers or shirts when they're anxious, this is a great time to help them start find- ing healthier coping skills. Explain how their hands have germs and the replace- ment coping skill is a healthier choice. The last step to ensuring a positive start to a very different school year is making sure that you are talking about school opening in a positive way. Adults have a hard time with the unknown. We tend to question decisions made by oth- ers and express ourselves openly when we disagree. This can be detrimental to your child's mental health in the start of a new year. If you think schools are do- ing too much or not enough, have these conversations away from your children. Your children need to buy in to the changes happening at their school in or- der to have a successful and fun year. So when you discuss this year's "new nor- mal" in going back to school, be excited for them, talk positively about the chang- es, and support the decisions of the ad- ministration.
