Today’s Menu: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w Cheesy Rotini Pasta 006
No rain and lots of sunshine, a beautiful Spring Day! Breakfast and my workout, then outside! Well the “Freezer Meal Week” is over but I’m going to continue using freezer products until it gets somewhat less full. Plus it saves money on the grocery bill by using what I have. So tonight I’m using Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts, took 2 the Chicken Breasts out of the package and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Dinner tonight it’s, Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

 
I’ve always enjoyed Hamburger Helpers – Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w Cheesy Rotini Pasta 003a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and easy meal to prepare! The Rotini and Cheese Sauce is excellent and the Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is one of the better Crumb Coatings I’ve had for Chicken. To prepare it first go ahead and make the Pasta, by the box directions. Then prepare your Chicken, I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. I cut each Breast into 3 pieces. Coated each piece with the provided Seasoned Crumbs and fried. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix & Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor. I added the Chicken, Water, 2% Milk, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper. It all comes together for one easily made and delicious dinner. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
