Today’s Menu: Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Fire – Roasted Corn Blend, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had a high around 44 degrees today! Mostly cloudy along with a light shower, beats below zero and snow! Most of the ice and snow melted but now we have more coming in Friday and Saturday. I took advantage of the warm-up and went to Meijer and Kroger, feels so good to get out! I purchased most of my items from Meijer and stopped Kroger for Mom but ended up buying some Seafood and tonight’s Dinner of Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Fire – Roasted Corn Blend, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

I know all the guys in the Kroger Meat Department and they told me I had to try the Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts. And they did look great so I bought 3 of them for our Dinner tonight. Nice looking Breasts, split and stuffed with Asparagus Spears and a slice of Cheddar Cheese. All I did was season them with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, I also sprayed the tops with a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray.

 

 

 

To prepare them I first preheated the oven on 350 degrees. Next I got a glass baking dish and sprayed it with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Lined the Chicken Breasts up in the dish and when the oven was ready I baked them. Baked them until they had an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about minutes.

 

 

 

 

They came out of the oven looking incredible! And what a Chicken Dish! The Chicken was moist and tender. Then the Stuffed Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese was a perfect stuffing. As I had said it was the first time I tried these and not the last, they make an excellent meal.

 

 

 

 

 


For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a can of Del Monte Fire-Roasted Corn Blend. Just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium heat, stirring often until heated through. First time trying this also. The Corn was mixed with Onion, Garlic, and Sea Salt. Makes a very good Corn side dish. I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Multi Grain Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Del Monte Whole Kernel Fire-Roasted Corn Blend
Whole Kernel Fire-Roasted Corn Blend Perfectly Seasoned Our perfectly prepared Golden Super Sweet Corn is combined with smoky fire-roasted corn and seasoned with onion, garlic and a dash of sea salt for a simply delicious side dish.

Simply pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and voila! – you have a nutritious taste of home. This is cozy dish on its own, or combine it with other ingredients to take your meal to a whole new level of down-home goodness.
