A couple of months ago I saw Christy's directions for making kraut. I remember when I was a kid my grandmother made kraut in the old churn and kept a plate on top. It seemed to take forever for the cabbage to become kraut. Then as I got old my mother made some one year. A couple of years later I asked her if she was going to make some more and she said it was a lot of work and you could buy a can for $.79. So I always bought kraut. I am a firm believer that you can not eat a hotdog without kraut so I always keep some in the fridge.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago when I found this recipe. She advertises that you can make this kraut without any special equipment. All this recipe takes is a little time. You can make this in a mason jar with a lid. I had a crock with a latch top and it worked well. Now on to the directions.
So making homemade kraut is very easy these days.

Who doesn't like Parmesan Chicken? This is a simple recipe full of flavor. Add a vegetable of your choice and you have a perfect meal. I don't think you will be disappointed. And yes there is an ingredient you might not be expecting.
This recipe is like homemade shake and bake if you want to think of it that way.
Lightly spray the top of the chicken. This will help brown up the panko. Place in a preheated 425 oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. I baked mine a little bit longer because they were thick. You could cut the chicken into strips if you wanted them to cook quicker.
Fresh from the oven. The chicken is moist and golden brown.
I paired my chicken with a baked sweet potato but any vegetable will go very nicely with this chicken.
