Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For my Bread for the French Toast I used a new Bread from Aunt Millie’s I recently came across at Meijer, Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart 1 Net Carb Wheat Bread. For my Syrup I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. More on this Bread in a post later. Anyway, for my Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Now that’s a Breakfast! 70 degrees with rain showers out today. Got the cart out this morning before the rains moved in and sprayed for weeds, we have a lot of them. I had also bought some Mole Bait. Everyone has a problem with Moles this year. Cleaned the cart up before putting it away. For Dinner tonight Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans.

 

Wanted to grill again today. So I had picked up a package of Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts at Meijer and had it in the freezer, laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. For the BBQ Sauce I’m using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce. I’m seasoning it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the grill up first. Next I sprayed the Chicken with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chicken Breast, then seasoned them with the Salt and Pepper and waited for the Grill to heat.

 

With the Grill ready I started. Added the Chicken and shut the lid on the grill. I let the chicken cook for 7 minutes, then used the tongs to flip the breasts over. Grilled for another 7 minutes longer. With about 1 minute of cooking time left I basted the Chicken with the Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce and finished cooking. Checked temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer reads it read just a tad over 165°. The Chicken came out fantastic! Moist and flavorful. First time using the Kraft Sauce and it was excellent!

 

As the Chicken was cooking I prepared the side dishes. For one side to go with the Chicken I prepared A can of Meijer Sliced Potatoes. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through and done!

 

Then for another side I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. And Dinner is served! The Chicken was spot on and the Potatoes and Beans work perfect with the BBQ Chicken. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Raspberry/Tea Snapple to drink. Take care and stay safe everyone!

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its 26 degrees, cloudy, windy, with a wind chill in the low teens. We have another 3-4 inches that came down late yesterday and early morning. So I spent a big part of the day salting and shoveling the driveway again. For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. So its a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! I guess if you are snowed in Chicken and Dumplings are the way to go! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having 1 time every 4 months or so doesn’t hurt.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Rotisserie Chicken w/ Green Beans and Golden Hominy

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken w/ Green Beans and Golden Hominy

 

I’m really pressed for time today. I’ve been behind all day long! Our roads last night and earlier today were a skating rink! We got about 1 inch of snow, which isn’t much, but the temps and wind chill took it to the low teens and everything froze! It was a mess. I heavily salted our driveway so that was in good shape about 10:00 this morning. The roads were back in good shape by noon. Which is when I took off for Meijer. We needed quite a few things so I got there before it was crowded and as I was checking it out it was getting packed. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Rotisserie Chicken w/ Green Beans and Golden Hominy.

 

First I would like to thank Meijer on what a fantastic job they did of snow removal and salting their parking lot! We had no clue on Dinner tonight so I searched for Dinner tonight also. I came across their Rotisserie Chickens they had just put out, I found Dinner! I think that was the 1st time I had bought a Meijer Deli Rotisserie Chicken. All I did to prepare was reheat it in the oven. It turned out absolutely delicious! Nicely seasoned and perhaps one of the most moist Chickens I’ve had, Mom agreed! So we’ll be getting another one some time. Good job Meijer!

 

We had Green Beans leftover from last night so I reheated those. Just added them to a sauce pan and heated it on low until heated through. Delicious!

 

For another side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and it’s been a while since I’ve had any. For those that have never had or heard of Hominy, Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! I also baked a small can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke zero to drink.

 

 

 

Rotisserie Chicken
Rotisserie chicken is a chicken dish that is cooked on a rotisserie by using direct heat in which the chicken is placed next to the heat source.
The chicken will take between 1 1/2 – 2 hours to cook, depending on how hot your grill is. With chicken it’s always best to go with telling it’s done by the temperature, not by the time. Chickens are cooked when the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F.

 

 

 

 

 


Allen’s Golden Hominy
For quality vegetables, there’s only one name to remember—Allens. We’ve been producing traditional classics and Southern-style favorites since 1926.

Ingredients
Prepared Yellow Corn, Water, Salt, Sodium Metabisulfite added to help promote Color.Allens Golden Hominy
Directions
Stove top: add contents to saucepan and gently simmer until hot.
Microwave: empty contents into a microwave safe dish and cover loosely. Heat on high power for 2 minutes, or until hot. Stir and serve.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Light rain, light snow and a high of 33 degrees. After I had my Tea I went to the Bank ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Well be getting a new neighbor. A lady that lived across the street moved out and another lady is moving in Saturday. For some reason that home sales every few years. We live in a good neighborhood here, everyone is really good people. So lucky! So for Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

I had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Tenders and Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 47 degrees and cloudy out all day. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Then outside I got the cart and did a few things around the yard and then grabbed the leaf blower and cleaned off the driveway and deck. No much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Tenders and Baked Fries.

 

I came across a package of Simple Truth Chicken Tenderloins (Tenders) and I sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I’ll need McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Poultry Herb Blend, Garlic Salt, Flour, Pam Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

I Seasoned and Floured the Tenders and set then aside. I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet heated I added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I added the Tenders, I cooked them in 2 batches so not to over crowd the skillet. I cooked them for about 5 minutes and flipped them over to continue cooking them another 4 minutes. I checked the Tenders with a meat thermometer and I had the correct reading of 165 degrees F. Removed the first batch on to a paper towel lined plate and cooked the next batch.

 

They came out excellent! Good Seasoning and the Flour gave it a good crust. Served these with sides of LiteHouse Lite Blue Cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Tenders I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served those with some Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Raspberry Snapple. First time trying the Diet Raspberry Snapple and really enjoyed it!

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 62 degrees and mostly sunny today, very windy out again. I had Phantom Pains start around 3:00 this morning and continue until about 1:00 this afternoon! These are so painful and frustrating. So I did very little today but catch up on some sleep and relaxation. Phantom pains just drain you. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a package of Ground Chicken while at Meijer earlier yesterday. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, finally found these Buns at Walmart. I keep them in the freezer and get one out when needed.

 

 

To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and Lettuce. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of All Bran Wheat Flakes along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A lot of rain and high winds overnight into the morning hours before easing up. For the afternoon it started in the 50’s but dropped to the 40’s as the day went on. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Not much else to do today. So its a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

 

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the Cornbread. I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
