Quick and Easy Parmesan Chicken

 

2 Tbs flour

1 c shredded mozzarella cheese

1 (14 oz) jar spaghetti sauce

1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 (8 oz) pkg spaghetti, cooked, drained

Preheat the oven to 350. Add the flour to a large oven bag, shake the bag to distribute flour and put in a 9x13x2 inch baking pan.  Add the spaghetti sauce to the bag and squeeze the bag to blend the sauce with the flour.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Add to the bag and turn the bag to coat the chicken with sauce. Arrange the chicken in an even layer in the bag.  Close the bag with the provided nylon tie and cut six 1/2 inch slits in the top.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is tender, the juices run clear, and an instant read or meat thermometer registers 170. Carefully cut the bag open and sprinkle the chicken with both cheeses.  Let the chicken stand until the cheese melts.  Serve over the spaghetti.

 

 

Spaghetti Squash w/Herb Butter & Parmesan

 

1 (2 lb) spaghetti squash

2 to 3 Tbs minced fresh herbs*

3 Tbs unsalted butter

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1 tsp minced garlic

1 (1 oz) piece Parmesan cheese, thinly shaved

1 Tbs minced shallot

*e.g. basil, chives, flat leaf parsley, oregano

Using a sharp knife, pierce the squash all over.  Place on a folded paper towel in the microwave oven and microwave on high for 6-7 minutes.  Turn over and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes, until the squash yields to gentle pressure.  Remove the squash from the microwave and let stand for 5 minutes.  (Times are for an 800 watt microwave oven; adjust as needed.)  While squash is standing, melt the butter in a small heavy skillet over medium low heat.  Add the garlic and shallot; sauté, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is limp, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the herbs and season with salt and pepper; remove the herb butter from the heat.  Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds.  Working over a large bowl, scrape the squash flesh with a fork, loosening and separating the strands.  Toss the strands with the herb butter and transfer to a serving dish.  Sprinkle with the cheese and serve.

 

 

Italian Hero Sandwich *

 

2 (2 oz) French or Italian whole grain rolls

2 oz mozzarella cheese, sliced

1 c roasted chicken breast pieces

 

Slice rolls in half horizontally and remove the centers. Spray each side with cooking spray.  Layer tomato, chicken, and mozzarella on one side of the roll. Add pimientos, salt, and pepper.  Cover with top of roll, cut in half, and serve.

 

 

Shrimp Caesar Salad

 

2 whole wheat pita breads

2 Tbs Caesar salad dressing

4 c washed ready to eat Romaine lettuce

2 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese

6 oz peeled cooked medium shrimp

fresh ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 300.   Place lettuce and shrimp in a bowl and toss with dressing. Place pita bread in oven.  Divide salad between 2 plates. Sprinkle parmesan on top and add pepper.  Serve with warm pita bread.

1 c olive oil

3 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1/2 c tarragon vinegar

1 heaping tsp salt

   

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil, generously salt the water, and boil the potatoes until tender, approximately 30-40 minutes.  Drain and let stand until cool enough to handle.  Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 1 inch chunks.  Place cut potatoes in a large bowl.  Sprinkle parsley and green onions over potatoes.  Make the sauce by mixing the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl; then pour sauce over the potatoes. Stir well. Let sand all day, or at least for 4 hours, stirring every hour.  Do not refrigerate.  Serve at room temperature.
