Chicken Burger Recipe

Posted on

I have ANOTHER meat recipe to share with you!  I know you’re thinking… “but, Laurie, you don’t like meat”.  I know!  How crazy is that?!

This week my brother made the family chicken burgers.  He’s been talking about how good these are for quite some time, and I would just smile, nod and think yeah, right.  Ground chicken?  Yuck.   However… OMGoodness!  Chicken burgers really are delicious!  I mean really, really SUPER DELICIOUS!

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. ground chicken (We used Perdue.  One pound made 4 burgers.)
1/8 cup red pepper – finely chopped
1/8 cup yellow pepper – finely chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs or Planko (We used Planko)  This helps hold the chicken together.
Sprinkle garlic powder, onion powder, Lawry seasoning, pepper to taste.  (or your favorite seasonings)

DIRECTIONS

Add all ingredients together and make into patties.  Grill as you would hamburgers.
Optional: add cheese of choice

We topped our burgers with American cheese and ranch dressing.  Yum!!

Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Posted on

Happy Friday!

I have a recipe for Chicken Parmesan to share with you.  It’s my family’s very favorite thing I make.  And it involves meat, which is a shocker if you know me.  (I’m not a vegetarian, I just think meat is generally yucky.)  But this recipe is FABULOUS! 😀

CHICKEN PARMESAN

Ingredients
3 chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 beaten eggs
1 cup or flour
1 1/2 -2 cups of seasoned croutons (use food processor to crush)
2 TBSP olive oil (add more if needed)
mozzarella, sliced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 large jar of spaghetti sauce.

Directions
Flatten chicken.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.  Put beaten eggs, flour and crushed croutons in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in flour, then the eggs, then the croutons.  Make sure the chicken is completely covered on both sides.  Brown slowly in the heated oil til golden brown.  (Heat oil on medium-medium high.)

Pour 1/4 – 1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce to the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish.  Lay chicken on top of the sauce, then add slices of mozzarella cheese on top of the chicken.  Add more sauce to the top of the chicken and cheese, then top with Parmesan cheese.

Heat oven to 350.  Cook covered with tin foil for 20 minutes, then an additional 20 minutes uncovered.  Serve over spaghetti noodles.

I heat the remaining sauce in a pan to have if needed.  I always serve this dish with garlic bread and a fruit salad.  ENJOY!

Pineapple Cheese Casserole Recipe

Posted on

Happy Friday!  Today I’m sharing another favorite recipe.  But before I do, I’m just going to say this once again…  I’m not a foodie.  I don’t like to cook.  Sometimes I don’t even like to eat.  So the recipes you see on my blog are so absolutely fabulous that I feel compelled to come out of my non-domestic shell and spread the recipe love.   Here we go…

This recipe came from my BFF’s mother-in-Law.  The first time I heard about this recipe, I was less than thrilled to give it a try.  I mean, cheese and pineapple together?  Really?  And hot??  But I put my big girl pants on and gave it a try.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!  It’s unbelievably delicious!  I personally would eat this for a meal.  I need nothing else.

This casserole is a staple for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners.  But don’t wait for a holiday to try it.  It’s an anytime dish.  You will thank me. 😉

(I don’t have a picture of the casserole.  There are pictures of the web if you want to see what it looks like.)
INGREDIENTS

3 (15 ounce) cans pineapple chunks
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons pineapple juice
8 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
30 buttery round crackers, crushed (I use Ritz)
1/2 cup butter, sliced
DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine pineapple chunks, cheese, pineapple juice, flour and sugar. Spoon into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Top with crushed crackers and butter slices.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
