“Use what you got to make what you want“ was the inspiration for this mid-week meal.
I usually buy Ground Turkey but this week purchased Perdue Ground Chicken, and using ingredients that I already had on hand I jazzed up an ordinary loaf.
Mixed Ground Chicken, an egg, leftover salsa, Taco Seasoning and bread crumbs to form loaf
Top with slices of onion and peppers (cheddar cheese optional)
Placed in loaf pan and baked for 40 minutes @ 350~
Served with Tortilla Strips and mild pepper rings.
Another easy breezy recipe- leftovers can be used to make a Taco Salad when added to lettuce, tomatoes, Avocado and dressing.
I cook chicken so often that I’m afraid one day we’ll sprout feathers! We like chicken, it’s quick, easy to prepare, and cheap but sometimes it can be BORING. Yesterday I came across a recipe by Caramelpotatoes.com and since I had all the ingredients I decided to give it a try.
1.5 lbs chicken tenders ( I cut up chicken breasts into chunks)
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
1 1/4 cups coconut
1 cup bread crumbs or Panko (I used both)
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheated the oven to 400~
Used parchment paper to line baking sheet
Cut up chicken breasts into chunks
Egg and coconut milk on one side
Coconut and Panko on the other side
Dipped chicken into egg/milk mixture
Coat both sides of chicken in crumbs and coconut
- Placed chicken on baking sheet covered with parchment paper
