In the U.S. Midwest potatoes are often fixed with chicken, usually mashed potatoes with gravy. The Lemon Bar-B-Que Chicken Breasts will not have the needed fat to make gravy, try something different such as: An Irish recipe for mashed potatoes and kale. A pasta side dish would be good too. How about a green vegetable, potatoes, and pasta? Use the recipe: green beans, red potatoes and bow-tie pasta as the side dish. Then you have potatoes and pasta!

Because this was a large plant and will grow taller, it was placed in separate pot.

Rosemary can be grown in your own garden in the sunlight and warm temperature. The sprigs are of flat needles which are used cooking. Often used in meats such as pork, salmon, lamb and chicken. Soups and sauces are enhanced by its pungent flavor and fragrance; it is an evergreen and available all year. When cooking with rosemary, pull off the leaves from the stem to wash an dry. According to httpss://whfoods.org rosemary stimulates the immune system and improving digestion. It may reduce the severity of asthma attacks. http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=75

Chicken Schnitzel

Chicken Schnitzel

Chicken Schnitzel:  A fresh change from comfort foods.

Chicken Schnitzel

Chicken Schnitzel

We have been having  soups, creamy casseroles, breads and desserts to comfort us in the cold of winter.  I decided we needed something crispy and fried.  Fried food is a rarity at our house, we bake, broil, steam, lightly saute or braise.   I remembered Chicken Schnitzel.

Chicken Schnitzel

Chicken Schnitzel

 It tasted so good, crispy, tender pieces of breasts of chicken with a crispy coating.  It was a nice change.

We look for comfort in foods, in the cold weather we look for comfortable clothes by wearing layers of  tee shirts, sweatshirts, big sweaters, and warm pants.    

 

Related imageThen comes spring and the unveiling!  Will that be a shock to you?  Have you found all your comfort foods around your middle? Are your scales a forbidden place to step?  Does it sound like a  lead into for a low calorie meal?  It wasn’t that at all. Really just changed the flavor of comfort foods to foods cooked in olive oil.  

 

 

Frying Chicken Schnitzel

Frying Chicken Schnitzel

I cut the chicken breasts into thin layers, 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.  I did not flatten the pieces, as in true schnitzel. I mixed an egg with 1 tablespoon water and prepared a pan of flour, cayenne pepper and   a seasoning blend and black pepper.  I dipped the chicken cutlets in the flour, then into the egg mixture and again into the seasoned flour.  When the oil was hot in the skillet, I added the chicken cutlets to brown under a reduced heat, until crispy on both sides, about 4-6 minutes each sides to 170 F.  This recipe was inspired by Winemonger.com.

Roasted Mixed Vegetables

Roasted Mixed Vegetables

The side dish was roasted mixed vegetables, coated with olive oil, dried Italian Seasonings and black pepper.  The vegetables are those on hand, this time we had potato, zucchini, onion, garlic, carrots, celery, cabbage and cauliflower.  These were roasted at 525 F to tender and somewhat browned, 20-25 minutes.  They were a nice balance with the Chicken Schnitzel.

We still had some sweet, warm, creamy, comfort food:  Creamy Rice Pudding.  This is a favorite recipe adapted from Chef Ron Lock’s Creamy Rice Pudding. I used long grain white rice, 1 cup vanilla soy milk, 1/2 cup Carnation Milk and 1/2 cup water.

Chuckwagon Turkey Stew

Chuckwagon Stew

There is a long history behind the Chuckwagon.  They were used by the cowboys working on the Texas cattle drives as early as 1867.  Each had their own cook, often called “Cookie” and was king of his chuckwagon.  The chuckwagon was the social center for the cowboys out on a drive.  He determined when, what to eat and sometimes, how much. 

Turkey Chuckwagon Stew  Chuckwagon Turkey Stew

Not much different than the  home “Cookies”   However, I doubt turkey was very the main meat in the stew, not when moving beef across the land.  There are some very interesting stories of the chuckwagon history.

Every ready baked potatoes.

My real intention of taking about this stew was the use of prebaked potatoes to have in the refrigerator to add to soups, stews, or for stir frying without the waiting for the potato to bake.  I bake four russet potatoes, wrapped in foil for 1 hour at 400 F.  They are cooled to room temperature in the foil, and stored until ready for addition to a recipe.  That was the beginning of the Chuckwagon Turkey Stew.

A savory stew to enjoy around a camp fire or picnic. Just as great to have for a quick evening week day dinner.
