Clara and I started a diet, and of course a diet is an absolute curse to someone that enjoys cooking, and eating as much as I do.
The folks at Barber Foods ironically sent me a brand new product to try, they call them Chicken Grillables. This is a bun size 4 oz patty of breast meat, that can easily substitute for a hamburger, for those times you would just prefer to have chicken.
At only 140 calories and 5 grams of fat this is a perfect choice for those watching what they are eating. They come pre-seasoned, so all you have to do is pull from the package and cook. I have to say, as easy as these are, good tasting, this is definately staying on the menu during our diet.
For those that may not recognize the Barber Foods name, they are the ones who sell the stuffed chicken breasts, in the frozen foods section of your grocery store.
If you want something convenient for the bun, or on its own for those watching their carbs, this is a vey good choice. Look for Chicken Grillables in the frozen food section of your grocery store.
Happy July 4th everyone!
We know you will be cooking out today, and wanted to throw in a very nice, easy, potato recipe. We have made several variations of this in our cooking class, and today we will give you the works.
There are 2 very important ingredients, first the potatoes. It’s very important to choose a creamer variety, either a gold (Yukon Gold), or Red (Creamer Red) variety of potatoes. Why? the creamer potato is harvested young, and yields a very tender, moisture rich, almost buttery flavor and texture. The second very important ingredient is the onions. The best onion for this recipe is the sweet onion, preferably the Vidalia. Why? The Vidalia is grown in a specific region in Georgia, and in my opinion, even though there are look alikes, the Vidalia is king.
Cheesy Grilled Potatoes
6 to 8 Potatoes (Yukon Gold preferably) (Sliced)
2 – sweet Onions (Chopped)
1 – Bell Peppers (chopped)
