Chicken Saltimboca

Ok… Ok… Ok… Another meal from our meal collections and I’m going to warn you, this is straight up delicious! No kidding! Last night, I made Chicken Saltimboca. Yum!

I took two chicken breasts and cut them in half and seasoned them with salt and pepper.

Combine a half cup each of flour add parmesan cheese.

Coat your chicken.

Heat three Tbs. of Avocado oil (the avocado oil is great because it has a nice light taste and it has a high cook point).

Now, cook your chicken until they are golden. About 8 – 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken. You want to make sure it’s 165°. 

We are going to take these guys and make a lemon dill sauce. Start with 1/3 cup of sour cream and a 1/4 cup of milk.

Wish them together and microwave them in 10 second intervals until is heated then add the lemon dill mix.

Now, let’s assemble this yumminess.

To your chicken, add some thin slices of ham (I used prosciutto).

Add mozzarella (I used a four cheese mix).-I was at Trader Joe’s and was getting carried away. Lol.

Melt the cheese and top with the lemon dill sauce.

Serve with a veggie and enjoy!

Our meal collections are no joke. Simple recipes and delicious food. The taste is restaurant quality for about $3 a serving. Check them out at http://www.johnbokin.com.

Bayou Bourbon Chicken and Slaw Sandwiches

Today, I’m going to share a recipe from one of Tastefully Simple’s meal collections. It’s the Bayou Bourbon Chicken and Slaw Sandwiches and it is so yummy.

Our meal collections are great. The dinner boxes come with the spices and sauces to create tasty dinners at home for about $3 a serving. They also have grocery lists so you don’t waste any time in the grocery store and you control the produce and protein going into your dinner. So you can shop as local and as fresh as you want!

Ok, let’s get on with it. This meal was so easy to put together and it was a crowd pleaser. 

First start with a rotisserie chicken. Debone it, chop it up, and put it into a sauce pan. This was the most amount of time spent on the diner. 

Next, you want to add 1/2 cup of our Bayou Bourbon sauce which is a favorite of mine. Goes so well on chicken, pork, or salmon. Yum!

Next, add 1/4 cup of our Vidalia Onion dressing. This is my wife’s favorite dressing. 

Mix it up and heat through.

For the slaw, I just bought a bag of slaw at the grocery and added 1/4 cup of the Vidalia Onion.

That’s it. Quick and easy. 

Let’s assemble this sandwich. The recipe casks for buns. I went with sliders. Just because. 🙂

First, the Bayou chicken…

Next, the slaw…

That’s it!

Don’t they look yummy?

They were. Lol.

I served it with a sweet mashed. 

Delish!

This is a hit. I can’t stress  enough how easy it was to put this dinner together and how delicious it was. 🙂

Well, till next time…

To your abundance, my friends!

A quick pasta…

My wife doesn’t like red sauce. I know, I know… But she has other attributes that make up for this. Hahaha. Jk. Nevertheless, I love pasta and the only way to have it on a regular basis is to do something simple with it like toss it with some oil and garlic. Add some cheese and blammo, delicious dinner.

Oil and garlic, this is where we start. Now garlic garlic is dehydrated garlic so I add it to the oil and let it sit for about a half an hour so it reconstitutes. 1 Tbs in a half cup of the oil.

Cook your pasta. Drain. Add the oil and garlic. Toss a little parmesan on top and serve as is or with your favorite pasta meat. I used meatballs. Just because… 🙂

For the meatballs, I used my recipe from a few posts ago: “the best meatballs you’ll ever have.” They are so good. 

Quick and easy. Enjoy!

Till next time.

Dill Pickle dip mix

As I go through my career here with Tastefully Simple, I pride myself on trying everything and giving an honest eval on the product because if I don’t LOVE it, I can’t sell it. You know what I’m saying?

Today’s product, dill pickle dip mix was just a product that didn’t speak to me for whatever reason but man, I couldn’t be any more wrong. 

I made it today for Hayden because he LOVES dill pickles and it was a homerun! Simple too. Start by taking one packet of the dill pickle dip mix, half cup of each mayo and sour cream…

Mix together and serve with your favorite chips. Although, Tostitos was all I had on hand. Lol.

Great flavor here. Subtle upfront and then it gives you a nice tangy, dill pickle aftertaste. It’s a hit. I can imagine using this as prepared but could also use this as a hot dog or hamburger topper. Yum!

Give it a try!

Till next time…

Velveeta’s famous Queso! Sorta…

The other day I googled queso and one of the top recipes was velveeta’s queso made with rotel tomatoes. It’s a standard. Lol.

So, I made the “famous” queso with a tastefully simple twist. Velveeta and our salsa. Great combo.


Start with your tomatoes and simply salsa, one 14 ounce can and a 1/4 cup of simply salsa.

Melt your Velveeta in a small saucepan.

Add the salsa.

Cook until cheese is melted. Put in a bowl and get the chips out!

Yum!

It seems like we’ve been making a lot of Mexican lately but, hey, when in Rome… Lol.

I hope you guys enjoy!

Adventures in Cupcake making…

Memories are made in the little moments. That’s just what we had the other day. My son, Grayson, was asking for cake. It was “daddy, cake this” and “daddy cake that.” Lol. He wouldn’t let it go. So, I decided that we would make cupcakes. 🙂

 As you can see, he loves the spoon. Now, this was after we were done so no transfer of two year old germies. 🙂

He’s running the mixer…

Filling up the cupcake tin…

We had a blast and as soon as we were done, he hit the showers. 😉

He brings me such joy.

As I told my wife, we had a blast and he will never remember it but I will. It’s a memory for me to hold and cherish. You see, life has good days and bad days. This one was a good one and one that I’ll hold onto whenever a bad one turns up. 🙂

Hang onto those moments!
