Crispy Lemon-Garlic Chicken Thighs with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots
Panko breadcrumbs make this healthy lemon-garlic chicken super-crispy on the outside, while a bit of mayonnaise amps up the juiciness of the thighs. And everything—including fingerling potatoes and carrots—cooks on one sheet pan, so this healthy dinner is super-easy to prep and clean up after too. You can swap out the potatoes and carrots for other vegetables, such as broccoli and parsnips, but just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly…………….

Easy Chicken Tikka Masala
It’s hard to believe you can get such a full-flavored, deeply spiced chicken tikka masala in just 30 minutes, but we did it! And, like the title says, this classic chicken tikka masala recipe really is as easy as it gets…………………

Lemon-Garlic Chicken with Green Beans
This easy lemon-garlic chicken recipe calls for cutlets, which cook in less than 10 minutes! Can’t find them? Make your own from chicken breasts. Place each breast on a cutting board and, with your knife parallel to the board, slice into the skinny side of the chicken breast in a single smooth motion. The side of green beans is cooked right in the same pan as the chicken, so this 20-minute easy, healthy dinner is not just a snap to prepare—the cleanup is a cinch too………..

I’ll take the thighs……….

Chicken breasts are expensive and can get dull after a while; thighs are juicier, cheaper, and more flavorful.

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole
Stuffing is not just for Thanksgiving with this easy chicken and stuffing casserole. And speaking of Thanksgiving, if you have leftover turkey, feel free to substitute it for the chicken in this comforting and healthy recipe. It’s also a great use for extra carrots, celery, onions and day-old bread you might have on hand around the holidays. There’s no boxed stuffing mix or canned soup in this lighter take on the comfort-food casserole, but it’s still super-easy to make. Poultry seasoning helps humble bread to taste like stuffing, while thickened chicken broth takes the place of canned soup. There are plenty of veggies in this one, too, making this a healthy casserole you can feel good about serving year-round……………

Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Marinated Chicken Breast w/ Farfalle Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Marinated Chicken Breast w/ Farfalle Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich using Thomas Light English Muffin, Boar’s Head Ham, and a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Yellow Cheddar. A beautiful day outside today, 70 degrees and mostly sunny. Got the cart out of shed along with rake and leaf blower. Raked the back yard and cleaned out the back and side flower beds of leaves. Later I took a ride on the cart and went to see a buudy of mine that lives a few streets over and spent some time over there. For Dinner tonight I prepared a ne dish, Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Marinated Chicken Breast w/ Farfalle Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

I had seen the Prego Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Cooking Sauce advertised in a Cooking Magazine a while back. Then I came across it at Meijer along all with all the other Prego Sauces, they had good selection of all flavors. To make this Dish I’ll be using the Prego Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Cooking Sauce, 2 Chicken Breasts, Extra Light Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, Farfalle Pasta, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread.

 

 

 

To start I turned the oven on at 400 degrees, for the Garlic Loaf Bread. Next grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heated the skillet on medium high heat. As the skillet was heating I seasoned the Chicken Breasts with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Then added the Chicken to the heated skillet.

 

 

 

 

After I flipped the Chicken I added the jar of Prego Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Sauce. I simmered the Chicken in the Sauce until it was done, 165° when checked by the Meat Thermometer. Removed the Chicken and Sauce into a bowl and set aside until my Pasta was ready.

 

 

 

 

 

For the Pasta I’m using Meijer Farfalle Pastra. To prepare it I boiled 3/4 pot of water that I Salted. When it started to boil I added the Past. Boiled for for 14 minutes, stirring occasionally. When done I drained the Pasta and put it in a bowl, Seasoned it with Salt, and added a splashy of the Extra Light Olive Oil and stirred.

 

 

 

 

 

To serve I made a bed of the Farfalle and topped it with some Grated Parm Cheese and then topped it with a Chicken Breast and the Prego Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Sauce. We have a Delicious Chicken Dinner! The Chicken was moist and flavorful. Then the Sauce is spot on! Excellent flavor with the Tomato and Ricotta coming through. Will have to have a jar or 2 in the pantry. So easy to prepare and Delicious! Also I baked the loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TOMATO and FRESH RICOTTA COOKING SAUCE

Go beyond just pasta and sauce with the delectable flavors of sweet tomato, fresh ricotta cheese and herbs and seasonings. Effortless to make, simply brown chicken, stir in the sauce and simmer. Dinner is served in 20 minutes!

Directions
1. BROWN 1lb. boneless chicken breasts (whole or cut) in 1 tbsp. olive oil.

2. STIR in 1 jar sauce. SIMMER until chicken is done.

3. SERVE with pasta. Enjoy!

Oven-Baked Chicken Drumsticks with Potatoes
Use your favorite dried herb blend to season both the drumsticks and the sauce in this healthy sheet-pan dinner. A garlic-and-herb mix is crowd-pleasing, but something with a little more heat, like Cajun seasoning, would be delicious too. Whichever way you go, opt for a salt-free version to keep the sodium down in this quick and easy chicken recipe…………………

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Chicken Sausage and Kale
What’s the secret to making store-bought butternut squash ravioli even more delicious? Add apple-chicken sausage, tender greens and lots of caramelized onions. We add a bit of sugar to help the onions caramelize faster, but feel free to omit it (just cook the onions a bit longer if you do). Buy prewashed chopped kale to cut down on prep time. It all adds up to an easy dinner that’s ready in just 20 minutes…………..

Kung Pao Chicken with Bell Peppers
Here’s an easy chicken recipe you’ll definitely want to add to your dinner repertoire. A quick marinade tenderizes the chicken and infuses flavor in this healthy version of a take-out favorite. Adding a little oil to finish the marinade coats the chicken and helps keep it from sticking to the pan…………………
