Dinner Tonight: Leftover: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast this morning to start my Saturday off I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Sunny, hot, and humid out today. Summer like weather has returned! Got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work before it got too hot and humid out. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas also. Then it was an afternoon of College Football. For dinner tonight Leftovers: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

Made an easy Dinner tonight, warmed up leftovers! I had the leftover Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta from last night. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Box Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper and 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the 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. Just boil, stir, and season.

 

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I prepared the 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 Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper.

 

 

 


I also baked a loaf of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Diet Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Partly Cloudy and a high of 80 degrees, Thunderstorms moved in later in the day. We had to move everything off the Kitchen Counters and Kitchen walls, we had the Kitchen painted today. So not much else going on. For Dinner Tonight I reheated the leftovers from last night’s Dinner, Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

Leftovers come in handy on days like today. I’ve left yesterday’s post for the Ingredients and Directions for the dish.

 

 

To start; I cut up 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts into bite size pieces, seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Litehouse Poultry Seasoning . I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil in a large skillet until done.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken finished I then added the can of Fixins’ to the skillet. The Fixins’ is a can of Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Margaret Holmes no longer makes it, lack of sales they say. I’ve been purchasing cans of it on various web sites but I can no longer can find it online and I’m down to my final 2 cans. But anyway, it comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. The Sauce coats the Chicken and gives it incredible flavor. I see a lot of delicious leftovers!

 

 

I also had heated up a small can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. I also baked a loaf of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This Bread is so good. I buy it at Meijer.

Chicken n’ Noodles will become a comfort-food favorite in any household. Add boneless, skinless chicken breast to a can of Simple Suppers Chicken n’ Noodles, which is filled with plump noodle dumplings and special seasonings.

Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts (This was Dinner last night)

Today’s Menu: Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts

 

Wow, I must have been tired last night. Forgot to post this!

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped with some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Outside this morning it was 17 degrees but the good about today is we are above freezing! 34 degrees and Sunny! After Breakfast I headed out to the Grocery Stores! I was having the dreaded Cabin Fever and I couldn’t wait to get out! I first stopped at Meijer for all my items and then on to Kroger for Mom. They say 50 degrees on Sunday but rain. I’m fine with that, just slow down the snow! So for Dinner tonight Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts.

 

 

I’m having the Bear Creek Alfredo Pasta Mix tonight for Dinner. Love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. Comes packaged with the Pasta and Sauce Mix. I’ll add the Chicken.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I added 4 cups of water to a 2 1/2 quart saucepan and brought to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought it back up to a rolling boil. then reduced the heat to a medium boil. Cooked for 15 minutes, stirring often. Removed it from the heat and let it sit for 8 minutes. The sauce thickened up perfectly. I like my sauces on the thick side and this one turned out great.The Pasta was good size with good taste and as I said the Alfredo Sauce was spot on! A great dish from Bear Creek to have in the Pantry.

 

 

 

For the Chicken I used Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts – Italian Style. I love using these, just keep them in the freezer until needed. To prepare them; Lightly coat a skillet with Pam Cooking Spray. Heat the pan over medium-high heat, add breasts and brown 1 minute per side. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature, turning frequently. Fried and done! These also bake up perfectly also.

 

 

 

 

To serve everything I took a bowl and made a bed of the Alfredo Pasta, sliced up 1 of the Chicken Breasts and added them to the top of the Pasta. And topped everything off with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Excellent dish! Past and Chicken is a natural. I think I may be having leftovers for Dinner tomorrow night! Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn.

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my Morning Cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom was gone most of the day so I stayed home to keep an eye on Dad. Did some house work and outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway area off. With everything done I kicked back and watched some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared Reames Chicken and Dumplings and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

Here’s another one I haven’t prepared in a long time, Reames Chicken and Dumplings. Why i can’t tell you, the Noodle/Dumplings are fantastic to use! While at Meijer I seen a package of these in the Frozen Foods and grabbed a package. To prepare the dish I’ll need; 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts (cut into 3/4″ chunks), 1 quart (32oz) Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth, 1 tablespoon Parsley flakes, 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, and 1 bag (12oz) Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings.

 

 

I’m using Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts. I love using these. Their individually wrapped, perfect size, and cook up perfectly. To prepare it; In a large pot, heat oil, add Chicken and cook until chicken is slightly browned.

 

 

 

 

Add Broth, Parsley and Pepper, Bring mixture to a boil. Add Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings, stirring to separate, return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 25 min. Stir occasionally to prevent dumpling from sticking. Or until dumplings are desired tenderness. All done, and serve! I’ve got to remember to have these more often! They always turn out so good. Easy to prepare and an excellent Noodle. They go perfect with Chicken.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Jello Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Woke up hungry this morning. So for Breakfast I prepared 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, 1 Egg (Sunnyside Up), 2 toasted slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (Lightly Buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast I had to be at the Doctor’s office. I had my 2 year check up of my right hip replacement. I go every 2 years and they take x-rays to make sure everything is good, and it was! The x-rays came back looking good. After that I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home I repaired an outdoor chair for Mom, replaced a couple of screws and cleaned it up. Then got the cart out and did some yard work, having trouble with weeds in the back yard. Everything done took the cart out for a ride and picked the mail up. For dinner tonight its Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread.

 

To start; I cut up 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts into bite size pieces, seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Litehouse Poultry Seasoning . I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil in a large skillet until done.

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken finished I then added the can of Fixins’ to the skillet. The Fixins’ is a can of Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Margaret Holmes no longer makes it, lack of sales they say. I’ve been purchasing cans of it on various web sites but I can no longer can find it online and I’m down to my final 4 cans. But anyway, it comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. The Sauce coats the Chicken and gives it incredible flavor.

 

I also had heated up a small can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then for dessert later tonight a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Mac/Cheese

 
Well a Happy Memorial Day to all of you out there! For Breakfast I had the leftover Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. to make this I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Topped it off with a Sunnyside Up Egg. The Egg gives the dish such a great creaminess. I also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a near perfect day out there today! Sunny, 81 degrees, and beautiful! After Lunch I went with Mom to a couple of different Cemeteries. We always take flowers out to my brother, grand parents, aunt, and uncle. Back home I got the cart out a took a ride around the neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Mac/Cheese.

 

I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious! Really enjoy these and so easy to prepare and our favorite by far!

 

 

 

 

As I was frying the Shrimp I started my Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. Second time I’ve tried the Cracker Barrel Brand of Mac and Cheese. Tonight I’m having the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 


Start by boiling 8 cups of water in medium saucepan. Stir in Macaroni.Cook 12 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain. Do not rinse. Return to pan. Squeeze the Cheddar Cheese and Bcaon Sauce over hot Macaroni. Stir until blended and serve. Came out nice and cheesy with excellent flavor. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
