What's Hap-Pinning Wednesday || Recipes

Happy Wednesday! Other than a spat with a few fellow students in one of my classes, today has been a great day! Tell me if I'm wrong on this: We have had two weeks to sign up in a group for a group assignment. TWO WEEKS. The due date was yesterday and as of last Thursday I was still the only one in my group. I emailed the professor and he told me to wait a few more days and that the assignment was easy enough to complete on short notice. Sunday morning I got an email from a guy in class saying he joined the group - great! Since there were two days left to complete the assignment he and I split it 50/50. Along with the assignment we had to do a peer review over how each person helped. I was designated the group leader so once he got his part turned in to me I added it with mine and logged in to Blackboard (online classroom) to turn it in only to notice that 2 others had joined the group. It was due yesterday at 10 PM. Why would you join a group a few hours before the assignment is due? I, once again, emailed the professor to ask his advice and he tells me to give them part of the assignment (that is already complete) and he'll extend the due date a week. So not only is the assignment already due, but we already turned in our peer review for just the two of us. I don't feel it's my responsibility to make sure these two that waited so long get to participate. I just don't. Am I wrong? It's just annoying to me that I have to hold the slack of others due to more than likely laziness. Ahh.. End of rant - sorry for that!

Anyways, today I'm linking up with Jessi and Jenn for What's Hap-Pinning Wednesday! Since I shared our fun weekend with you and a day in the life post already, I thought I'd share with you a recipe (done two ways) that has been hap-pinning a lot over here. :) No, I did not get the recipe off pinterest, it's one I've been making for years, and the pictures are definitely not pinterest-worthy, but it's oh so good!

Original Ritz Chicken

What you'll need:
-chicken tenders (or breasts, I just prefer tenders)
- 10-20 Ritz crackers (depends on how much chicken)
-6 oz plain Greek yogurt
-Ranch dressing mix (dry)
-seasoned salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°
Coat baking dish with Pam and set aside

Crush up your crackers and put in shallow bowl (or plate).
In another, mix the yogurt and ranch seasoning.

Sprinkle seasoning over your chicken, dip it in the ranch mix, cover it completely with cracker crumbs and place in baking dish. If you happen to have any crumbs left over, sprinkle them over the top.

Bake for 25 minutes. I always make extra so I'll have plenty to top a salad with for lunches - so good!

The night of this picture, I was cutting up the zucchini and watching TV when a Red Robbin commercial came on and it got me thinking - This would be so good with something like their campfire sauce (y'all know what I'm talking about, right?)!

So that very next week you know what I did? I made it with my own kind of campfire sauce. Tate came in and made a face - you know the "what in the world are you doing" face - but the first words out of his mouth after he took a bite were "this is really good"! Well, thanks!

BBQ Ritz Chicken

What you'll need:
- Everything listed above +
 - 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays)

After mixing the ranch dip, add in the bbq sauce and make it the exact same way as above.  Sadly, I don't have a picture of these because I wasn't exactly sure that we would like it - thanks to Tate's face!

These are so good and really so simple! Now that I've switched it up once, I'm going to continue switching it up! Next: Honey Mustard Ritz Chicken. Because, duh! I'll let you know how that one turns out.

I hope you enjoy one of my Ritz Chicken recipes. Have the best day!
