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

 

 

Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w Cheesy Rotini Pasta 002
Woke up starving this morning! So for Breakfast I toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), made some Hash Browns using Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, and finally fried up some Gliers’s Turkey Goetta! Oh, Breakfast is served! Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love Goetta, got to start having it more often! High 80’s out today but less humidity! Finally that high humidity has let up, at least for one day or so! Got the cart out of the shed and did some work around the yard. That all done, I took a spin around the neighborhood and down by the lake. It is hot but low humidity! For dinner tonight I prepared 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 a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and an 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 until done. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix and 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 Health Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered) and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
