Blackberry Muffins
These blackberry muffins are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast. The batter is lightly flavored with cloves, while almonds on top give them a savory, nutty crunch. Fresh blackberries add a burst of sweetness in every bite……….

Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard
Tossing chicken tenders with cornmeal gives these chicken nuggets great crunch without deep-frying. Blackberries (or raspberries, if you prefer) combined with whole-grain mustard make for a sweet-and-savory dipping sauce. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and carrots………

Blackberry Cobbler
Flaky, buttery biscuits dolloped on sweet, syrupy berries–fruit cobblers may be the best summer dessert ever. We love fresh blackberries in cobbler, but fresh blueberries or even frozen blackberries make a great substitute. You don’t even have to thaw the berries first; mix them up while they’re still frozen……..

Grilling Chicken………

Searing meat gives beautiful grill marks and adds that mouthwatering barbecue char to chicken. The key to a good sear is dry meat and a hot grill. First, pat the chicken skin with a paper towel to take out as much moisture as possible. A super-hot grill allows the chicken to get a good sear and is less likely to stick. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Clean and lightly oil hot grates. When ready, place the chicken on the grill (if using skin-on chicken, place skin side down on grill). Grill chicken, without turning, 6 to 10 minutes for boneless chicken and 10 to 14 minutes for bone-in. When it’s finished cooking, just like a good steak, chicken needs to rest.

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 92 degrees, cloudy, and humid out. I went to Meijer after having my Tea, Mom needed a few things. On the way back home I stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. We have another hot and humid day out there, some areas close by had some rain. Just did a few things around the house just to stay busy. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Some Chicken Strips sounded good for tonight. We usually use Pilgrim Chicken Strips (Frozen) but it looks as though no one carries them so I went with the Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips instead. We had them a while back and really liked them better than Pilgrim Chicken. They come frozen also. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips
This fully cooked meal makes for a great ready-to-cook entrée that tastes as good as it is easy to make! Serve Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips with your favorite sauce or marinade to bring out their incredibly savory flavor.

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Loaded Potato Casserole and Shellie Beans

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the morning off. 86 degrees and mostly sunny out today. I had to go to Meijer to pick up a few items for tonight’s Dinner. I stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Then I stopped by the Bank ATM and then on home. Got the cart out of the shed along with the lawn tools and finished up the yard work, which seems to be never ending! I don’t mind though I love doing it. My Tomato and Pepper plants are doing great, all are full. Picked my first 2 Jalapenos yesterday. For Dinner tonight I prepared, Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Loaded Potato Casserole and Shellie Beans.

For the Chicken; I started at Noon today I grabbed a large Hefty Bag and added a 1/2 Pint of Buttermilk to the bag. I then added several shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and shook the bag to blend it together. I then add my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used my favorite, Katie’s Best Chicken.

 

To prepare the Thin Sliced Chicken Breast I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed with a coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then I started heating the skillet on medium heat. Next I added a tablespoon and a half of Olive Oil Cooking Oil. As the skillet heated I got the Chicken out of the fridge and removed it from the bag of Marinade, shaking off the excess. Then I grabbed a pie pan and added Flour to it and seasoned the Flour with Paprika. Took the Chicken Breast and rolled them in the Seasoned Flour until well covered.

 

Added the Chicken Breasts to the heated Skillet. I cooked the Chicken for 4 minutes and then flipped them over and cooked them for 4 more minutes, until golden brown and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees. The Chicken turned out so very good! Cooked up perfect, nice crust, and love the seasoning! Served it with Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce for dipping.

 

For one side dish I prepared a box of Idahoan Loaded Potato Homestyle Casserole. I love all the Idahoan Potato Products. A very quick and easy way to prepare some delicious piping hot Potato Dishes.

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good! Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. For Dessert later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Fried Chicken………….

The secret to succulent fried chicken starts with a marinade or brine, which keeps the chicken at its peak juiciness. Fried chicken traditionalists generally choose a buttermilk marinade while others swear by a brine, which is a mixture of sugar, salt and sometimes spices dissolved into water.

Place the breaded chicken into the 350 degree oil. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. Fry each piece for 14 minutes, turning each piece about half way through, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Is it done yet – This method applies to chicken specifically. For properly cooked chicken, if you cut into it and the juices run clear, then the chicken is fully cooked. If the juices are red or have a pinkish color, your chicken may need to be cooked a bit longer.

One of America’s Favorites – Gyros

June 14, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Gyros sandwiches wraps in Greece, with meat, onions, tomato, lettuce, fries, and tzatziki rolled in a pita

A gyro or gyros pronounced [ˈʝiros]) is a Greek dish made from meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like shawarma and al pastor meat, it is derived from the lamb-based doner kebab. In Greece and Cyprus it is prepared most often with pork or chicken, whilst beef, chicken, and lamb are common in other countries. It is typically served wrapped or stuffed in a pita, along with ingredients such as tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce.

Grilling a vertical spit of stacked meat slices and cutting it off as it cooks was developed in Bursa in the 19th century Ottoman Empire, and called doner kebab (Turkish: döner kebap). Following World War II, doner kebab made with lamb was present in Athens, introduced by immigrants from Anatolia and the Middle East. A distinct Greek variation developed, often made with pork and served with tzatziki sauce, which later became known as gyros.

By 1970, gyros wrapped sandwiches were already a popular fast food in Athens, as well as in Chicago and New York City. At that time, although vertical rotisseries were starting to be mass-produced in the US by Gyros Inc. of Chicago, the stacks of meat were still hand-made.

Gyros plate

According to Margaret Garlic, it was she who first came up with the idea to mass-produce gyros meat cones, after watching a demonstration by a Greek restaurant owner carving gyros on the What’s My Line? television show. She convinced her husband John Garlic, a Jewish former Marine and then Cadillac salesman, of the idea. After obtaining a recipe from a Greek chef in Chicago, the couple rented a space in a sausage plant in Milwaukee and began operating the world’s first assembly line producing gyros meat from beef and lamb trimmings, in the early 1970s. The Garlics later sold their business to Gyros Inc., which along with Central Gyros Wholesale, and Kronos Foods, Inc, also of Chicago, began large-scale production in the mid-1970s.

 

The name comes from the Greek γύρος (gyros, ‘circle’ or ‘turn’), and is a calque of the Turkish word döner, from dönmek, also meaning “turn”. It was originally called ντονέρ (pronounced [doˈner]) in Greece. The word ντονέρ was criticized in mid-1970s Greece for being Turkish. The word gyro or gyros was already in use in English by at least 1970, and along with γύρος in Greek, eventually came to replace doner kebab for the Greek version of the dish. Some Greek restaurants in the US, such as the Syntagma Square in New York City—which can be seen briefly in the 1976 film Taxi Driver—continued to use both doner kebab and gyros to refer to the same dish, in the 1970s.

 

In Greece, gyros is normally made with pork, though other meats are also used. Chicken is common, and lamb or beef may be found more rarely. Typical American mass-produced gyros are made with finely ground beef mixed with lamb.

Gyros preparation

For hand-made gyros, meat is cut into approximately round, thin, flat slices, which are then stacked on a spit and seasoned. Fat trimmings are usually interspersed. Spices may include cumin, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and others. The pieces of meat, in the shape of an inverted cone, are placed on a tall vertical rotisserie, which turns slowly in front of a source of heat or broiler. As the cone cooks, lower parts are basted with the juices running off the upper parts. The outside of the meat is sliced vertically in thin, crisp shavings when done.

The rate of roasting can be adjusted by varying the intensity of the heat, the distance between the heat and the meat, and the speed of spit rotation, thus allowing the cook to adjust for varying rates of consumption.

In Greece it is customarily served in an oiled, lightly grilled piece of pita, rolled up with sliced tomatoes, chopped onions, lettuce, and french fries, topped with tzatziki sauce or, sometimes in northern Greece, ketchup or mustard.
