Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sort of cold ou there this morning, 33 degrees with a cold wind blowing! Partly cloudy and a high of 58 degrees. After Breakfast I ran a couple of errands for Mom and picked up Breakfast for her at McDonald’s. Didn’t do a lot today. Most of the morning and day I had a bad sinus headache. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I purchased a package from Meijer my last visit there. 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.

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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Had rain finally overnight and light rain this morning. High of 68 degrees and cloudy the rest of the afternoon. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

I had a bought package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger yesterday. 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 Kroger yesterday also. 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.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I also opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans. I love these, always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Quite a Dinner tonight as always when having the Chicken Thighs! Just had a Diet Peach Snapple for Dessert/Snack tonight.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a beautiful day out there today! Sunny and 75 degrees, and low humidity! Early Fall?? The only bad thing is the pollen, mold, and ragweed is sky high! Bad news for people like myself with allergies. I was sneezing and sniffling all day. Which led top a bad headache most of the day. I’ll be glad when all the weeds die and my allergies die with them. So just another thing to work through. Not a lot going on, just did a few chores around the house. I went to a funeral home in the early evening. A friend of mine brother passed away. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I bought a package of Ground Chicken from Meijer the day before. I have these about once a week or so anymore. I’m using Smart Chicken – Ground Chicken. 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. I’m keeping the toppings the same as last time, the Burgers came out delicious!

 

 

 

So 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!

 

 

 

 

 

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 Diet Peach Snapple.

Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Chicken Breasts w/ Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine

Today’s Menu: Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Chicken Breasts w/ Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees and a bit more humid, passing rain showers around the area. Well spent the day breaking up Half Runner Green Beans and helping Mom can 14 quarts! Plenty of Green Beans for a while. I’m glad I’ve learned how to can. Not a lot of people can anymore. For Dinner tonight I prepared Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Chicken Breasts w/ Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine.

 

 

 

I picked the Chicken up at Meijer, Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts, and had the package in the freezer. Sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I’m seasoning the Chicken with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat.

 

 

 

 

 

When the skillet was heated I added the Chicken Breasts. Cooked the Chicken for 7 minutes a side. With a couple of minutes of cooking time left I turned the heat down to medium low and added the jar of Prego Cooking Sauce. Flipped the Chicken one last time with a minute left. I cooked it an extra minute to let those flavors of the Tomato and Fresh Ricotta marinate the Chicken Breasts. Checked temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer and it read just a tad over 165°. Removed the skillet from the heat and let it sit a couple of minutes until the Pasta finished. I came across the Prego Cooking Sauce – Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Sauce at Meijer last week, looking forward to trying their other Sauces!

 

 

 

I’m serving the Chicken with Pasta Roni Rustic Recipes Olive Oil and Italian Herb. I’ve had this many times but usually with Shrimp. Easy to preapre and makes a delicious Pasta Dish, I’m preparing this as my Chicken is cooking. To prepare it In medium saucepan, bring Water and Olive Oil to a boil. Then slowly stir in Pasta and Special Seasonings. Return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 10-12 min., stirring frequently. The Sauce will be thin so just let it stand for 3min. to thicken. Pasta Done! I love these Rice A Roni and Pasta Roni products! Added a sprinkle of Morton’s Light Salt to it.

 

 

 

 

To serve it I made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and top it with a one of the Chicken Breasts and the Sauce. Topped it all with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I really like this Prego Cooking Sauce! Excellent flavor and Seasoning, perferct for the Chicken. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of South Carolina grown fresh sliced Peaches, love these Peaches!
