111. Twenty-Minute Chicken

leave a comment »

Recipe source: Allrecipes.com

If you like mushrooms – and I mean really, really like mushrooms – you’ll like this. It also has a healthy topping of mozzarella cheese on top, and that always makes supper better.

It’s simple and quick to put together, and it tastes good. The name is a bit misleading, in my opinion. I buy big chickens, and it takes longer than 20 minutes for this dish to cook. But, it’s so easy, I don’t mind the extra time.

I served it with a made-from-a-box porcini risotto.

Go ahead and put this one on the dessert table. It was very good, but wow, it was sweet. I could have skipped the pumpkin pie (but I’d already baked it, so we ate it, too!).

105. corn casserole

This was a good, classic corn casserole. It had a nice corn bread consistency – not runny or soupy at all.

101. penne with chicken and pesto

Even though this dish goes together really quickly, it still has that restaurant-quality taste.

I used pesto that I made this summer (using basil from our garden) and froze.

100. Colleen’s slow cooker jambalaya

I do not know Colleen, but she makes a mean jambalaya.

This was very good, but mine was definitely too spicy – the kind of spicy that makes your nostrils burn when you smell it.

Next time, I’ll choose a milder sausage and cut down on the cayenne pepper.

99. Kathy’s roast and vegetables

I’m still working on using up carrots from BP’s garden, and both BP and I love love love carrots cooked with a pot roast. We actually could care less about the roast – it’s all about the carrots in our house.

This recipe instructs you to sear the roast before placing it in the slow cooker. I highly recommend this step, as it does improve the quality of the roast, but if you’re short on time (as I was), you can just throw everything in the crock and it will still taste good.

This is a very easy, classic pot roast recipe for those days when you need a good, hearty slow cooker meal.

96. tangy chicken fajitas

Recipe source: See post #48

Well, it finally happened. I duplicated a recipe I already made this year.

I hadn’t been to the grocery store. I had some chicken in the freezer, tortillas and sour cream in the refrigerator and a couple of late-season green peppers BP pulled from the garden sitting on the counter.

I knew I could throw this meal together in a matter of minutes, and it was something we would actually enjoy eating!
