Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

 

Egg White Omelet Turkey Goetta Toast 002
So for Breakfast I toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), made an Egg White Cheese Omelet using Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and finally fried up some Gliers’s Turkey Goetta! I also had topped the Omelet with Old El Paso Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce, which is good on anything. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.Mid 80’s out today and low humidity still! Got the cart out of the shed and took a spin around the neighborhood and down by the lake. For dinner tonight it’s Leftovers,reheated the Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta Leftover fromlast night.

 
Yesterday’s Dinner was good, there was no way those leftovers were going to waste! The Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is the best breading for Chicken I’ve eve had. I’m going to have to find the recipe for it. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Below I’ve left last night’s post which includes the recipe, Enjoy!

I’ve always enjoyed Hamburger Helpers – Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and an easy meal to prepare! The Rotini and Cheese Sauce is excellent and the Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is one of the better Crumb Coatings I’ve had for Chicken. To prepare it first go ahead and make the Pasta, by the box directions.

Then prepare your Chicken, I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. I cut each Breast into 3 pieces. Coated each piece with the provided Seasoned Crumbs and fried until done. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix and Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor. I added the Chicken, Water, 2% Milk, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper.
