Today’s Menu: Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Thomas Light 100 Calorie Multigrain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather again. It’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and it was 29 degrees this morning and a high of 37 degrees, mostly cloudy. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. On the way back home I stopped and got gas and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Later on grabbed a broom and the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

 

 

 

I had posted a while back that they opened a new Super Kroger store to repalce the smaller Kroger up the road from us. The other day when I was there I seen that they had the PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER. With the bigger store comes way more of selections of food! The prices are still high though which is why if I have time I go to Meijer or Walmart to do most of my shopping. Anyway it was great finding the Perdue Roaster again!

 

 

 

 

 

As I said it came frozen so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it is a breeze! It came frozen and its in a cooking bag, ready for the oven! To start I first preheat the oven to 400°F. I Cut open outer bag and removed Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Placed in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. The instructions said that the Cooking bag will expand during cooking and to allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls. The instructions say the best way to prepare it is from fresh. Once oven had been pre-heated to 400°F, I lowered oven temperature to 350°F. Placed the pan with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roasted for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes until a meat thermometer registered an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

 

 

 

Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer Roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Removed the string from legs and carved. The Chicken came out perfect! Moist, juicy, and flat-out delicious! So glad I can find these again!

 

 

 

 

 


To go with the Chicken you can’t go wrong with Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 


Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. Just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I also had come across a loaf the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Loaf Bread buried in the freezer. So I baked that. Still haven’t found a place that carries it since Meijer no longer has it. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER
Perfectly seasoned, juicy and convenient. Perdue’s Oven Ready Roaster cooking bag saves time on traditional roasting and makes cleanup a snap. Fresh, refrigerated.

COOKING and PREP

* OPEN: Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish, breast side up.

* SLIT: Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. Note: Cooking bag will expand during cooking; allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls.

* COOK: From FRESH (Preferred Method): Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes (130 minutes) until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

* COOK: From FROZEN: Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 4 hours until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

* SERVE: Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer Roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Remove string from legs before carving. Remaining juices in bag can be used for delicious gravy.

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Bear Creek Alfredo Pasta Mix

The kitchens of Bear Creek® are always cooking up family pleasing dishes. Like our savory pasta sides. Just add water and in minutes you have a dish that’s hearty and creamy. With 7 delicious varieties to choose from, the only problem will be deciding which is your favorite.

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!

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.

So I prepared; toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), made some Hash Browns using Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and finally fried up some Gliers’s Turkey Goetta! Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love that Turkey Goetta! Same old with our weather. Hot, humid , and rain on and off. After Breakfast I went Kroger for a few items for Mom and then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for them. After Lunch I went to the hospital to see a friend of mine, he’s waiting to have heart surgery. He’s got a couple of blockages that have clean out. Back home just did a few things around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

 

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’ve always enjoyed the Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. But like most items as it seems I can’t find it anywhere in my are so I have to order it online. Anyway 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.

 

 

 

 

It all comes together for one easily made and delicious dinner. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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.
