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

 

 

 

Started the morning off by Scrambling 2 Eggs, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A little under the weather still, fighting a Sinus Infection. So I took it easy today and didn’t do a whole lot. I don’t think its anything that some sunny and warm days won’t be able to cure! For Dinner tonight its Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

One of those days where I didn’t feel like putting a whole lot of effort into preparing my dinner. So there’s nothing easier than baking some Pilgrim Chicken Strips. Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal! I had not had these in a while. I switched over to Perdue Chicken Strips so I wanted to change it over to Pilgrim’s. 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 the Chicken I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread, One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips evoke memories of growing up in a sleepy southern town. The crickets chirping, the moss hanging from the trees, the air humid and everything moving slow in the heat. And your grandmother’s delicious home cooking brought the entire family around the table on the weekends.

Our Southern Style Breast Strips feature a juicy piece of chicken with a breading just right to deliver that southern flair. Our special blend of spices and seasonings with the whole muscle goodness of white breast meat will please kids and old-timers alike.

Ideal as:
* Appetizers
* Snacks
* Lunch or Dinner Entrées
* Crowd Pleasers

Cooking Instructions:
Oven: Preheat oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast fritters in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes until no pink remains or an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the chicken breast fritter.

Fryer: Heat oil to 350° F. Fry frozen chicken breast fritters for 6 minutes or an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the chicken breast fritter.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Grilling Chicken……….

Grilled Chicken is so good but don’t risk serving under-cooked chicken. When in doubt, make a small cut into the thickest part so you can be positive that it’s no longer pink inside. You can also use a meat thermometer to check if your meat has reached a safe internal temperature: 180° F for a whole chicken, and 170° F for breasts. Grill On!

Today’s Menu: Winging it on a Sunday! – Dry Rub BBQ Chicken Wings

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Started the day at 31 degrees and had a high of 45 degrees and mostly sunny. After Lunch we went over to see Dad for a while, he’s doing okay today! Back home I’ve been trying to gradually go through all the old items in the shed and get rid of them, Dad was bit of a Pack Rat. For Dinner tonight it’s Chicken Wings. I prepared Kroger Dry Rub BBQ Chicken Wings. I had these a while back and really liked them.

 


I prepared some of the Kroger Dry Rub BBQ Chicken Wings. I’ll be baking these, I preheated the oven to 425 degrees. Used a baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Wings up on the foil and seasoned them with the BBQ Dry Rub that came with the Wings. I then baked them for 17 minutes, flipping them over after 8 minutes. These turned out to be an excellent Wing! Excellent BBQ Dry Rub. Served these with a side of Litehouse Light Blue Cheese Dressing. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 


Litehouse – Lite Blue Cheese Dressing

Made with 48% fewer calories than regular blue cheese dressing, this version tastes as delicious as ever. The handcrafted blue cheese crumbles and fresh buttermilk together create a taste you can feel good about. You won’t even miss those calories! Great taste with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Puttanesca Pork Chops
This flavorful pork chop dinner recipe is proof that bold Neapolitan puttanesca sauce can liven up more than just spaghetti. Unlike brined olives like Kalamatas, oil-cured olives have a meatier bite because they’re coated in salt then macerated in oil. Look for them on olive bars or with other Italian products. Serve with sautéed broccoli rabe and whole-wheat orzo……

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
We gave classic barbecue chicken pizza a healthy twist with hidden shredded zucchini in the sauce. It’s a great way to sneak extra veggies into both you and your children’s diet!……

Salmon and Fall Vegetables with Bagna Cauda
