Gluten-Free Chicken Cordon Bleu is a relatively easy dinner to get on the family dinner table. The only small trick you’ll need to learn (If you don’t already know how) is how to butterfly the chicken breast so the sauce and filling can be added. But, don’t fret. I’ll walk you through that step with my easy to follow photo tutorial! You got this!!
There are just some nights when you don’t have the time, or inclination to cook something with lots of ingredients, or that takes much effort in the way of preparation. That’s where this Low Carb Shredded Salsa Chicken comes in.
In fact, making Low Carb Shredded Salsa Chicken is so easy even a teenager (or husband) can do it. That’s another reason you can say “Winner, winner, chicken dinner!”
The day I saw him make it, I kept waiting for chef Symon to add heavy cream to his dish while he was cooking his skillet chicken thighs (I think it was for a Five in Five), but he never did. I wanted to, so I did. I also omitted the mustard, added shallots, and didn’t shave my Brussels sprouts. I quartered them.
Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?
The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.
When it comes to the Thanksgiving dinner, I like to experiment with my menu as well as serve the tried and true traditional recipes my family loves and expects. This way we’re all happy…and stuffed! Even if you don’t like to travel off-course when it comes to tradition, I hope you’ll enjoy and appreciate this Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Food Feastings! Gobble. Gobble
If you’re a taco Tuesday type of gal, then you may want to switch things up just a wee little bit by serving these Healthy Southwestern Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados. If, by chance, you don’t think these are your style because you’d be missing the crunch from a traditional taco shell, then why not crunch a few chips over the top to garnish? This way you still have the crunch you desire, but you’ll also be cutting back on a few of the carbs as well.
This easy recipe for Tantalizing Teriyaki Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Chicken calls for only four ingredients. Bacon, teriyaki sauce (mine came with the sesame seeds, you may want to add sesame seeds to your ingredient list if your brand doesn’t include sesame seeds), pineapple rings, and bone-in skinless chicken thighs.
