Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 74 degrees outside today, 80 degree weather and dry on the way! I had to stick close to the phone and house. We are having trouble with our phone and cable TV and I had to wait around for the repairman to call and arrive. It was finally dry enough for them to mow our grass, and it needs it! It’s been so wet out that you couldn’t mow it. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Chicken and Dumplings! No way these leftovers were going to go to waste! Mom makes the best Chicken and Dumplings there is! I have many an old room mate through the years that will back that up. I left the original post from yesterday for recipe and intsruction. Take care all!

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 everymeal. 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/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry. Cloudy, passing rain showers, and a high of 74 degrees out today. Well the Beauty Salons opened back up today and Mom made sure she had an appointment this morning at 10:00! After Lunch and in between thunderstorms I moved 3 bags of extra Dark Mulch over to my neighbor’s house. He’s older and not in great health so I was able to take them over using my Hoveround. Don’t know what I would do without my Hoveround. Being an amputee it is my legs! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had this Burger a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t wait to have another! I had purchased a package of Smart Ground Chicken from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I already had divided the package into 4 equal parts to make 4 Chicken Burgers. So I set a package in the the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Litehouse Poultry Herb Seasoning, 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, John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun.

First thing I did was fry the Bacon. I’m using John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon. I rarely use John Morrell but you have to use what you can find in stock right now at the stores. John Morrell Bacon is great tasting Bacon, just don’t use it. So I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam cooking Spray. Then heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Bacon. Mom loves Bacon so I just fried the whole package. Fried up great and was delicious! I set it aside until I needed it.

Next I made my Chicken Burger patties. 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.

 

In a 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 the Bacon. 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/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Waffle Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart 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 Tenders and Baked Fries

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Wow, what a beautiful day out there today! Sunny and 71 degrees but a possible record cold morning with snow flurries by in the morning! Yes indeed, that Ohio Weather! It’s no wonder everyone has Sinus and Allergy problems in Southwest Ohio! Hopefully they’ll miss that forecast. After Lunch I got the cart out and did a little yard work. Then later took the cart for a spin around the neighborhood, enjoying that sunshine! For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Tenders and Baked Fries.

 

I had no clue on what to prepare for Dinner tonight so I hit the freezer. I came across a package of Simple Truth Chicken Tenderloins (Tenders). So I sat them out to thaw this morning. 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 later a Jello Dark Cherry Sugar Free Jello. Take care everyone!

For Breakfast this morning I made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a rainy day! Cloudy, rain, and a high of 50 degrees. One day its a high near 80 degrees and 2 days later 49-50 degrees, good ole Ohio weather! Not much to do today. Just did a few things around the house and caught up on some reading. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

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

 

To start my Monday Morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Kroger Diced Ham, and Fried a Sunny Side Up Egg. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Then placed the Sunny Side Egg on top of all of it. One of my favorite Breakfast Dishes. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had to make some repairs on my Hoveround today. A friend of mine came over to give me a hand, we both had the masks on. We replaced all 4 tires, the arm rest assembly on both arms, and replaced the batteries. It was a complete overhaul, it needed it too! Good to have friends you can rely on! For Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans!

I had a a couple of packages of Skinless and Boneless Chicken Thighs that I had delivered a couple of weeks ago from Kroger.I had them 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.

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I had also opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them on already cooking. I love these, 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks and a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Hash Brown and Diced Ham Skillet. I used Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and then topped it all with the Sunny Side Egg. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Partly Cloudy and 65 drees out today. Gave the grill a good cleaning. Took it apart and cleaned the burners and cleaned the shell. Week 5 of our home isolation this week. For Dinner tonight Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans.

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 of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take care and stay safe everyone!

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

 

 

 

To start this Saturday Morning off I made a Breakfast Sandwich. To make I heated up 4 slices of of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, topped it with a slice of Swiss Cheese (melted on top of the Ham), 1 Fried Egg (Medium Size) Over Easy, and served on a couple of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Sandwich was so good, that melted Swiss Cheese and the Runny Egg was fantastic! I also had a cup of Biglow Decaf Green Tea. Well its day 3 of semi isolation. Although I did go to the Doctor and to Kroger for some items for Mom. I could get out without too much worry but I take the chance of perhaps catching the flu or virus and passing it to Mom. And that would not be good, she’s 92 years old. This new Corona Virus is deadly for Senior Citizens. I’ve got Mom on lock down for 3 weeks until hopefully this virus lets up. Our area here in Butler County, Ohio has it’s first 3 confirmed cases of it so its time to shut it down for a while. A lot of things are closed for 2-3 weeks so there’s not much to do. Grocery Stores are still open though. Hope all of you are safe! For Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans!

I had a picked up a couple of packages of Skinless and Boneless Chicken Thighs at Kroger yesterday. I put one in the freezer and kept one out for our Dinner tonight.
