Instant Potato Crusted Fish/Chicken

I know you've been on pins and needles waiting for another way to utilize those instant potatoes. Who needs breadcrumbs!!
  • 1 lb white fish filet or chicken
  • 1/2 cup instant potatoes
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesean/romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • optional: 1 egg or a few tbsp mayonnaise
  • plastic baggie or shallow bowl
  1. Preheat oven to 400F (205C).
  2. Grease a glass baking dish or use a non-stick baking dish.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together in the baggie or shallow bowl.
  4. Wet your fish or chicken. You can use a gluing agent such as a beaten egg or mayonnaise to help the batter stick to the meat. Then put one piece at a time into the crust mix and coat thoroughly.
  5. Put the meat into your baking dish.
  6. Bake the fish or chicken until it is cooked thoroughly (20 min for boneless chicken, 40min for bone-in chicken, 30-40 min for thick fish filet)
If you're more of a skillet person than baker, just put a little cooking oil in the skillet and go to town. Heats up the house a little less and your food is finished faster. There's also the grilling option.
