Today’s Menu: Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees, humid with thunderstorms moving in later. And we need the rain, it’s so bone dry out there. After my Tea the garbage truck ran and got our can along with 7 other cans for my neighbors. Then i went out to my garden boxes and picked a plastic bag full of Jalapeno Peppers and Green Bell Peppers. My Jalapeno Plants are just full this year. I took a bag and a 1/2 on over to my cousin’s house. Then back home I went and took some pictures of a friend’s flowers. I then printed them out for her and took them up to her. She’s an elderly neighbor who can’t get outside anymore and I’ve been helping her out. She was really surprised by the pictures and really liked them. Then the heavy rains moved in. For Dinner tonight a Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie w/ Baked Fries.

 

A Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie sure sounded goods for Dinner tonight! I have seen a few on cooking shows recently and just thought it was time to have one. I’ll need a package of Thin Cut Chicken Breasts, Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar, French’s Honey Mustard, Butter Lettuce, and a Meijer Perfection Wheat Mini Hoagie Bun.

 

I bought a package of Katie’s Best Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts at Meijer a day ago and I’ll be using those. To prepare them, this morning I removed a couple of them from the package and froze the remainder. I put the Chicken in a large Hefty Plastic Bag and added Buttermilk and Frank’s Hot sauce to bag. Squeezed the bag together making sure to fully cover both Chicken Breasts and sat the bag in the fridge to marinate until ready to use.

 

I turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Then to prepare the Chicken I first got a Cast Iron Skillet out. Added a 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil to it and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating got the bag with Chicken marinating out of the fridge. Took the Chicken out of the bag and shook off the excess Buttermilk and Hot Sauce Marinade, I seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. I then put a couple of tablespoons of Flour, that I Seasoned with Paprika, a in pie pan and rolled the Chicken Breasts in the Flour, making sure both sides were covered with the Flour.

 

With the Cast Iron heated I added the Chicken Breasts. Cooked them 2 minutes a side and then finished them off in the oven. I flipped them over 1 more time and continued to cook them until I had a temperature reading of 165°F. As I removed them from the oven I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese to them. The Chicken came out Golden Brown!

 

 

 

To make my Hoagie I’ll need Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese (already added), Honey Mustard, Lettuce, and the Wheat Hoagie Buns. I used Smithfield Hickory Smoked Bacon that I had fried earlier this afternoon. I only needed about about 2 slices per Hoagie but as always when frying Bacon you have to double the amount you prepare because you end up eating half of what you fix!

 

So I split the Hoagie Buns in 1/2. On the bottom Bun I added the Honey Mustard putting a nice slathering across the Bun. I love that word slathering, it just sounds like something good is coming! So then I added the Lettuce, the Cheese topped Chicken Breast, the Bacon, and the top Bun. The Hoagie was delicious!

 

To go with Hoagie I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breast Sandwiches and Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and less humid, with a high of 88 degrees. After my Tea I went to Meijer for a neighbor then on the way home stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Watered everything down and did some yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breast Sandwiches with some Baked Fries.

 

For the Chicken I used the 2 leftover Chicken Breasts from last night’s Dinner. To reheat them I heated the oven to 350 degrees. Then I used a small baking dish, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Added the Chicken to the baking dish and heated the Chicken until heated through. Again I used our favorite Chicken, Katie’s Best Chicken.

 

To make Sandwich I topped each Chicken Breast with a slice of Swiss Cheese, added some Emeril Deli Style Mustard and served on an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun. Fantastic and Delicious Chicken Sandwich. I love leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I fried up some Bacon, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, baked a small tube of Pillsbury Buttery Biscuits, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny, Humid, with a heat index at 109 degrees. Rain moved in around 5:00 today. Not a good day out there. I got all the watering and cleaning done outside early this morning. I picked a half bag of Shishito Peppers and took them over to my cousin’s house, they love Peppers! Stopped and filled Mom’s car up with gas and back home out of the heat. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green 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 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 we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

For another side I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Pot Pie

June 20, 2022 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pot pie

Pot pie is the North American term for a type of meat pie with a top pie crust that is commonly used throughout the continent, and is most often found in the United States and Canada consisting of flaky pastry. Pot pies may be made with a variety of fillings including poultry, beef, seafood, or plant-based meat substitute fillings, and may also differ in the types of crust. In both countries, various versions exist and can vary significantly in terms of both preparation and ingredients, with chicken pot pie being the most popular variety of the dish.

Archaeologists have discovered gallette pies dating back to the Neolithic Age around 9500 B.C. The Greeks cooked meats mixed with other ingredients in open pastry shells, and these were called artocreas and were then spread to the Romans. In the times of the Roman Empire, these pastries were served at banquets and were prepared with various meats, oysters, mussels, lampreys, and fish and included a crust made of a flour and oil mixture. The royalty nicknamed them “coffins”. Pies spread across medieval Europe during the Crusades. In the 16th century, the English gentry revived the custom of serving pies and the tradition soon swept the country. A British food commenter once described them as, “which they bake in pasties, and this venison pasty is a dainty rarely found in any other kingdom. “The meat pies made by the English of that era (called pot pies in North America) would include various meats such as pork, lamb, birds and game. During the reign of Elizabeth I, English cooks made pies using “chicken peepers,” which consisted of chicks stuffed with gooseberries. The obsession with pies spread to the New World soon after it spread across Europe when the first American settlers took their pie recipes with them when they moved westward.

Homemade chicken and vegetable pot pie, cut open

Pot pie can be prepared in a number of ways including in a skillet over a stovetop, in a baking dish in an oven, or in a pie iron over a campfire. There are numerous other types of pot pies including taco, ham and brie pizza, and steak and mushroom. The pie shell and crust can be made from scratch or can be fashioned from store bought pie crust or biscuit dough and includes ingredients such as butter, lard, olive oil, flour, and shortening. Once prepared and served, the pot pie leftovers can be stored in the freezer for later consumption.

In the Pennsylvania Dutch region, some people make a dish called “bot boi” (or “bottboi” by Pennsylvania German-speaking natives. Pennsylvania Dutch pot pie is a stew without a crust. Most commonly made with chicken, it usually includes homemade dumpling-style dough noodles and potatoes, and sometimes vegetables such as carrots or celery.
