I've decided along with Brad that it's time that I start menu planning again. So, since everything in my life seems to go onto the blog now, I figured, why not this too? Especially since there's a whole group of bloggers who do the same thing! :)
We're on a low-carb diet right now, so most of my recipes will be low-carb friendly, but you can add carbs if you want. :) Also, my side dishes are a little boring; they usually consist of a can or bag of veggies, so I'll spare you typing those out. :)
Monday: Salsa Chicken
Tuesday: Crustless Broccoli Quiche
Thursday: Western Chicken Chunks
Friday: Chicken Stir-Fry
Salsa Chicken--Easy and yummy!
chicken breasts (as many as you need)
salsa (as much as you want)
sour cream and shredded cheddar (to taste)
Put the chicken breasts in a greased, glass baking dish. Dump some salsa on top (I use about 1-1 1/2 cups for 4 breasts.) Bake at about 350 degrees Farenheit (My oven is in Celcius and the temperature knob is stuck at an unknown temperature and this recipe still worked. :) ) for about 30-45 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink (better yet, use a thermometer.)
Let chicken cool a little, then shred with two forks. Top with sour cream and cheese. If you're not going for low-carb, it would be delicious inside a tortilla. :)
Western Chicken Chunks--a silly name for a family favorite
4 chicken breasts cut into 1-2 inch cubes
Ranch dressing (about a cup?)
2 cups Cornflakes (crushed to about a cup)
salt and pepper to taste
Mix salt and pepper into the crushed cornflakes in a bowl or ziploc bag. Set up an assembly line with chicken, a shallow bowl of Ranch dressing, a bowl (or ziploc bag) of crushed cornflakes, and a greased cookie sheet (I like to cover mine with foil for easy cleanup.) Dip chicken into ranch dressing, then into the cornflakes, and place on baking sheet.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink in the center.
Growing up, my mom usually made a side of baked, seasoned potato wedges with this, but alas, I think we'll just have some roasted cauliflower if my husband will eat it. :)
