I was in an "experimental" mood tonight and decided to try something new with chicken. Honestly you can do anything with it. This is the result of my experimentation tonight! Cole and Cambri gobbled it up. And me being pregnant and sensitive to different things, I don't eat much, but this was just right! I loved it too! Let me know what you think!
You'll Need: -8 oz. cream cheese (no fat, cut the calories :o)) -sprinkle of parsley -sprinkle of rubbed sage (or crushed) -4 chicken breasts -1/2 cup parmesan cheese -1 tbs olive oil -1-2 tomatoes -8 slices cheese (I used monterey jack-just whatever you have) -plastic bag -skillet (one that's able to go into the oven-or just transfer chicken to a baking sheet.)
DIRECTIONS: -First turn on your broiler -mix softened cream cheese, sage and parsley -Put one breast of chicken at a time in plastic bag. Seal bag. Use skillet to gently pound chicken out and flatten it to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. -Pour parmesan onto plate. -Remove chicken from bag. scoop some of cream cheese onto chicken breast and roll chicken breast up. -Secure with a toothpick if needed. Just remember to take it out after it's done cooking! -Roll chicken in parmesan and place in the skillet with olive oil. Cook chicken breasts on one side until browned. Flip chicken and cook for a few minutes. -Then place a couple tomato slices on top of chicken and cheese slices on top of tomatoes. -Place skillet on shelf closest to broiler on one below that. Broil until cheese is bubbly and a little brown. -Walah!! You're done! **I served it with cheesy rice and salad. Yumo!!
*These are one of my favorite treats! I was craving them Sunday, so Cole and I made them. They are so easy and SOOOO good! Let me know if you like them as much as I do!
You'll Need: -3 c. sugar -1 c. evaporated milk -1 c. honey -1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine -1 lb. of puffed rice/wheat
DIRECTIONS: -Mix sugar, honey, butter, and milk. First have your stove heat set to high until the mixture boils, then turn it down to medium and cook it until it hits the hard ball stage. If you don't have a thermometer, just water test it. When it sets up in water pretty well but is still a little pliable, it's ready. Mix it with the rice in a separate bowl (it cools faster). Let it cool for a few minutes. Shape rice into balls and enjoy!! They get hard and they are so good! *Hint: if you wet your hands a little bit before shaping each bowl, it won't stick to your hands as much and the balls will come together a lot easier.
