Provolone and Olive Stuffed Chicken Breasts
This is an elegant dish. Making a pocket in the chicken breast to hold the stuffing is easy, particularly if you use a good, sharp, thin-bladed knife. Browning the chicken in a skillet before baking gives it a beautiful golden color. Finishing it in the oven ensures that it cooks evenly throughout…………….

Jalapeño-Popper Stuffed Chicken
Stuff all the flavors of fried jalapeño poppers into a creamy filling for stuffed chicken breasts. This healthy baked chicken recipe is great with a side of green beans for an easy dinner…….

Hasselback Caprese Chicken
Using the hasselback technique (cutting crosswise slits every half-inch along the chicken breast) cooks the chicken faster and ensures you get a burst of flavorful gooey filling with each bite. This quick one-pan high-protein and veggie-packed dinner is easy to make and the whole family will love it……………..

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Baked Fries

 

To start this day off I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving (1 cup). Well the heavy rain have finally stopped, at least for the day! 79 degrees and sunny out today! But rain returning by Saturday Morning. So at least we got 1 day without rain. Anyway after Breakfast I took Mom with me and we went to Meijer. Mom has switched from Kroger to Meijer, a good way to save money! I only go to Kroger for the Deli and Milk. Most everything else I go to Meijer or Walmart. Back home tried to catch up on some yard work while we had the sunny weather. For Dinner tonight its Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal that still delicious! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the Chicken Strip . And Chicken is served! It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Chicken I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I had a toasted Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. I also fried up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s after I ate and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Rain, thunderstorms, and 78 degrees out today. So much rain! So again not much going on outside! Did a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I had a package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then 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 has become one our favorite Dinners!

 

 

 

 


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.

 

 

 


I grabbed a plate and put paper towel on it and removed the Chicken Thighs from the skillet to the lined plate. Paper towel absorbs any of the excess oil. Just love the crust on the Chicken provided by the Flour Coating! The Flour and cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet. So moist and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 


For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my 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 had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and had them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Sweet and Sour Rhubarb Chutney

Jalapeño Popper Burgers
We’ve taken a simple burger recipe and made it pop with an easy three-ingredient jalapeño cheese topping. Ground sirloin is lean ground beef made exclusively from the center loin cut. It has less connective tissue than regular ground beef for a super-tender burger………

Instant-Pot Mojo Pork
In Cuba, lechon asado (roast pork) is marinated in mojo, a citrus-herb sauce. In this Instant-Pot pork recipe, the pressure cooker infuses similar flavor into pork shoulder. No pressure cooker? Braise the meat in a large pot in a 300°F oven for 4 to 5 hours…………..

Restaurant Favorites Made Healthy
From Chinese restaurant recipes like General Tso’s Chicken to Italian pasta dishes like Fettuccine Alfredo, our delicious homemade versions of restaurant favorites are healthier options that save you calories and money. Instead of going out to eat, make one of these healthy recipes at home.

General Tso’s Chicken
In this healthy version of a General Tso’s Chicken recipe, we cut the fat and sodium in half from the original version by not frying the chicken and by using half as much soy sauce in this Chinese-takeout favorite. Serve with steamed baby bok choy or sautéed spinach and steamed brown rice…………..

Spicy Pecan Popcorn Chicken
These spicy and crunchy pecan-crusted chicken nuggets are paired with a quick, creamy ranch dip. If you can’t find coarse breadcrumbs, substitute Grape-Nuts cereal instead………..

Sweet and Sour Pork
Pineapple, tomato and pork combine in a sweet-tangy sauce in this easy, bright- flavored sweet and sour pork stir-fry. This dish does have a fair amount of acid (from vinegar, tomatoes and pineapple), which can affect the patina of your wok. So remove the food from the wok as soon as you’re done cooking, and if your wok shows any signs of rusting, reseason it (see Tips)………

Why let meat rest before slicing………

* The juices get redistributed and reabsorbed. Your meat will be jucier.
* The fibers relax. Your meat will be more tender.
* The meat finishes cooking.

Beer-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Vegetables
Need a new chicken dinner idea? Try this grilled chicken and vegetable dish from chef Rick Bayless. Grilling the chicken and summer vegetables is a no-brainer, but in colder months, you may wish to move indoors and roast the chicken, along with some root vegetables. Whatever the weather, it’s worth seeking out piloncillo for the beer glaze. This unrefined sugar used in Mexican cooking is made from evaporated cane juice. Its complex caramelized flavor balances any bitterness in the beer. Look for it in Latin markets and online…………..

Open-Face Italian Chicken Sandwiches with Avocado Slaw
The quick tomato topping on these hearty and healthy chicken sandwiches will remind you of pizza. The accompanying slaw swaps out mayo for healthier avocado. Cook the chicken breasts on the grill if you prefer (see Tip) and consider making a double batch of the chicken for lunches and dinners later in the week……..

Chicken Pesto Pasta with Asparagus
This healthy chicken pesto pasta is easy to make thanks to convenience ingredients like rotisserie chicken and store-bought pesto. The addition of fresh asparagus—which is cooked in the same pot as the pasta—brightens up the look and the flavors of this family-friendly and easy one-pot dinner. Fresh basil, if you have it on hand, is a nice finishing touch…………

Summer Squash Pad Thai
In this “spiralized” vegetable noodle recipe inspired by pad thai, zucchini and summer squash replace the rice noodles, pumping up the vegetables while reducing calories. Top with stir-fried chicken, shrimp or tofu for added protein if desired………..

Grilled Chicken Thighs with Summer Corn Salad
Chicken thighs are easy on the budget and great for grilling because they stay moist in the heat. Here, they are paired with a fresh corn and tomato salad for a simple summer dinner. When grilling skin-on chicken thighs, watch for flare-ups. Move the chicken away from the flames and reduce heat, if necessary, to keep it from charring………..

Simple Grilled Salmon and Vegetables
Grilled salmon and veggies make for a colorful and balanced seafood dinner that’s ready in just minutes. The grill turns the salmon flaky and moist while tenderizing the crispy pepper and onion pieces. Round out the meal with brown rice or quinoa……….
