Hope you had a great Wednesday! Ours was up and down (pool stuff), but now the three of us our lounging on the couch watching Psych, so it’s all good!
We also had an awesome dinner, so I wanted to highlight that and a couple other recent recipes.
First, the ones that aren’t mine.
Tonight’s dinner was straight out of Fitness magazine.
We followed this recipe exactly, except I used shredded parmesan cheese instead of grated and we grilled the burgers instead of making them on the stove. We’ve never grilled chicken burgers, and James was skeptical, but these chicken parm burgers were delicious! So flavorful and juicy! Highly recommend!
Next, I made these pancake muffins, which is an idea I got from Ashley.
Hers look even better, but these turned out pretty good too! I used 2 cups of pumpkin pancake mix, 1 1/2 cups of milk, 2 eggs, and a handful of chopped walnuts. Thanks for the idea Ashley, they were wonderful! Also, check out Ashley’s page in general, all her recipes look so amazing!
Now, an incredibly easy chicken bake that I came up with a few days ago when I wanted something homemade, but had very little ingredients in the house.
Chicken and Tomato Bake
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 can of Italian style stewed tomatoes
- 1 cup of panko crumbs
- 1 T of Italian seasoning
- black pepper to taste
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, seasoning, panko, and parmesan cheese in a bowl. You may have to add additional panko crumbs until all of the liquid from the tomatoes is soaked up. Place the chicken breasts in a square baking pan and cover with the tomato/panko mixture. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Finally, top the bake with the parmesan cheese and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes until the parm is melted.
I love this recipe because I always have all these ingredients in my house, even when I haven’t gone grocery shopping, so it’s easy to always get a home cooked meal even with empty cupboards.
That’s it for tonight, have a happy Thursday!!
