A few hints on Roasting Chicken….
* Don’t overcook. An overcooked chicken is a dry chicken. To prevent overcooking, use an instant-read thermometer as your most reliable indicator of doneness (see the tip below for how to use it). It should read 165° to 170°F.
* Let it rest. Don’t be tempted to cut into the chicken as soon as it’s out of the oven. Resting for at least 15 minutes on the cutting board allows the juices to redistribute into the meat, making it moist and tender.
* Since chicken breast meat is low in calories and saturated fat, you can eat the skin and still keep saturated fat within allowable limits. If you like dark meat, which is higher in saturated fat, remove and discard the skin.

Today’s Menu: Baked Bone-In Whole Chicken Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Canned Green Beans, and Rustic French Bread
Well as they predicted the heat and humidity has returned to the Ohio Valley! Don’t mind the heat but can’t stand the humidity. Can you believe how fast this year is going! July is almost over with August approaching with its so called “Dog Days of Summer.” Got the cart out, before it got too hot and humid, and cleaned and raked up around the house. Took the car up the road and had it washed and the inside vacuumed. Then came back home and just did some odd and ends chore around the house. For dinner tonight it’s a Baked Bone-In Whole Chicken Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Canned Green Beans, and Rustic French Bread.
I picked The Perdue Chicken up at Kroger yesterday. My favorite bagged Chicken, the PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast. As it says “Baked Bone-In Whole Chicken Breast Oven Ready”, already seasoned, and little clean-up needed afterwards. To prepare it just preheat the oven to 400ºF. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster Bone-In Breast, sealed in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan, seasoned side up. Cut one small 1″ slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. If cooking from Fresh: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 80-90 minutes, until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF. Comes out piping hot, well seasoned, and delicious! Plenty leftovers for some Chicken Sandwiches or Burritos! Such an easy way to have an excellent Baked Chicken Dinner!
For one side I made some of my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, Mom’s favorite. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast (3 lbs.)
Deliciously seasoned and juicy, whole bone-in chicken breast. Oven ready for convenience. Cooks perfectly in the bag for easy clean up. Keep Refrigerated.
*Ingredients: Chicken, water, salt, potassium and sodium phosphates, brown sugar, dextrose, carrageenan, yeast extract, maltodextrin, natural flavor. *Seasoning Ingredients: Dextrose, modified food starch, onion, maltodextrin, natural flavor, garlic, cottonseed oil, dried carrot, xanthan gum, dried parsley, calcium chloride, potassium chloride, carrageenan.

COOKING AND PREP
• Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster Bone-In Breast, sealed in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan, seasoned side up. • Cut one small 1″ 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: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 80-90 minutes, until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF.** • Cook from Frozen: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 2-1/3 to 2-1/2 hours until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF.** • Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer breast to serving plate or cutting board. Remaining juices in bag can be used for a delicious seasoned gravy. **If breast temperature is below 180ºF, return to oven and continue cooking, checking the temperature every 10 minutes until the temperature reaches 180ºF.

Nothing like a great salad to start off your meal or making a salad as your meal. From the EatingWell website it’s Fresh Dinner Salads. Check out the EatingWell website for all your meal needs. http://www.eatingwell.com/
Fresh Dinner Salads
Make a hearty salad for dinner with these fresh recipes for dinner salads.
Fresh seasonal produce offers plenty of reasons to try one of our deliciously satisfying salad recipes for dinner. Most greens are great sources of folate and of vitamin C, which promotes healthy skin and a healthy immune system. Popular salad additions, such as tomatoes, carrots, cabbages and bell peppers, deliver vitamin A (as beta carotene) and lycopene, a phytochemical that may protect against breast and prostate cancers. Enjoy one of these produce-packed dinners tonight.
Loaded Spinach Salad
Like many spinach salads, this one features lots of chopped-up hard-boiled egg. But since most of the calories in an egg are in the yolk, this recipe uses just two whole eggs, plus the whites from six additional eggs, for a satisfying spinach salad that keeps the calories in check…..
Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken
Chicken turns this Greek-inspired salad into a substantial main course. Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare the rest of the salad. Serve with pita bread and hummus……
Mediterranean Tuna Antipasto Salad
Packed with protein and fiber, this tuna and bean salad is ready in a flash. For an extra kick, add a pinch of crushed red pepper or cayenne……

Today’s Menu: Lightly Breaded Chicken Strips w/ Roma Beans and Baked Potato
We have another extremely humid day out there again! I’ll be glad when this weather breaks, don’t mind the heat but can’t stand that humidity. For Breakfast this morning I had a Simple Truth Turkey Sausage Patty, Egg White, Cheddar Cheese, on English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich. I’ve really found a winner in these sandwiches, I bought a box of Simple Truth Breakfast Sandwich but with Canadian Bacon it instead of the Turkey Patty, 20 fewer calories also. I went to Kroger this morning for myself and Mom and back home. Cleaned up outside from last night’s rain and wind. Finished up a load of laundry for Mom and then did a few things around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared Lightly Breaded Chicken Strips w/ Roma Beans and Baked Potato.
While at Kroger I picked up a package of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Lightly Breaded Chicken Strips. I love using these but always forget about them because they are in the Organic Section of Kroger and never think to look for them. They come fresh and lightly breaded and fully cooked. So to prepare them I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Grabbed a cookie sheet and lined it in foil and sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil on it. Lined the Chicken Tenders on it and baked for 8 minutes. Removed the sheet from the oven and flipped the Strips over and continued baking for another 8 minutes. Removed from the oven let stand for 3 minutes and served! Golden Brown, moist and tender, and just flat out delicious. Just love the seasoning and breading on these Chicken Strips makes a very good meal. Served with a side JB’s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce.
For one side I had a small Russet Baked Potato, topped that with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Pepper Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also reheated some leftover Roma Green Beans, one of my new favorites! I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
