Trefoil Chicken Nuggets


  • 1 box of Girl Scout Trefoils
  • 1 pound of boneless skinless, chicken breast.
  • 1 egg
  • butter
  • salt
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • In a cup mix the egg, 1/2 cup milk, and a bit of salt (to taste)
  • Cut up the chicken into small pieces (if you want strips, it works the same way).
  • Crush 1/3 of a tube of trefoils. Dip the chicken in the egg/ milk mixture, and then in the trefoils.  The trefoils need to be crushed up really well, so consider doing it in the ziplock bag and then transfering to a clean bowl. Each time the cookies in the bowl get soggy and stop coating the chicken right, clean out the bowl, and crush another 1/3 of a tube. While you are doing this, the butter should be in a frying pan, heating up on medium. If the heat is too low, you'll have soggy chicken. If the heat is too high, the outside will be crispy, and the inside will be raw. RAW IS BAD. 
  • Put the chicken in the pan in a single layer. You'll know the chicken is ready to be flipped over, when the side you can see is mostly white. This way, you won't have to cut into the chicken to know if it's cooked or not.
  • Serve with a side of ketchup or sour cream. YUM!
If you want to try to make your own recipe out of Girl Scout Cookies, here is the link:

Dog Cookie Contest

Doggie Samoa Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal
  • 1 cup of low sodium, plain, chicken broth (most dogs are allergic to onions and garlic).
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 flour
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (make sure there is nothing in the peanut butter that your doggie can't eat).
  • 1 teaspoon of corn starch
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F. 
  • Get a baking pan good and greasy so the doggie treats don't stick.
  • In a big bowl, mix the oatmeal, plain chicken broth, eggs, and flour. It should be chunky and goopy, but thick enough to mold into an o shape. 
  • One by one, mold them all into samoa shapes and put on the greasy dish. Keep in mind how big your dog's mouth is, and make the treats small enough that they won't choke.Our doggie is big, so we made his treat the same size as real samoas, but if your dog is small, you might want to make them smaller.
  • Cook them for 20-30 minutes. They should be golden brown, and crispy, but not burnt. 
  • Take them out and let them cool.
  • Heat up the peanut butter for about 30 seconds. This should make it good and runny. Put it in a ziplock bag and mix in the cornstarch (cornstarch help the be able to stack later without ruining your hard work).
  • Close the bag, and carefully snip of a teensy, weensy bit of the corner so it's a bit like a piping bag. 
  • Drizzle on the peanut butter over wax paper or the baking sheet. 
  • Let the cool even more until the peanut butter has set.
  • Transfer to an airtight container for safer keeping and let your doggie enjoy.
This is our doggie, Sugar, enjoying the yummy treats.
