The End of Chicken Parmesan As You Know It

The End of Chicken Parmesan As You Know It
Not counting pizza and spaghetti, chicken Parmesan may be the most popular Italian-American restaurant entree out there. For many years I've been trying to perfect a home version that didn’t require the breading and frying, but still offered that irresistible combination of tender chicken, crunchy/cheesy coating, and flavorful sauce. These attempts were met with soggy, flaccid results. The problem with not frying the breaded breast is the baked-on coating just doesn’t get crisp enough to stand up to the sauce and cheese. Well, on Tuesday, February 19th, at 4:45 PM, it hit me like a giant meatball dropped from the leaning tower of Pisa (worst simile ever?). dilemma. What followed was one of my proudest moments as a cook. UPDATE!! Ingredients: 2 tbsp olive oil 2 cloves garlic, crushed hot red pepper flakes, to taste 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 5, but they were huge!)

Popover Upside Down Pizza Oh me, oh my! Now please don't cry. Although I have no gift for rhythm and timing I have the urge to go on rhyming. This dish is easy peasy and oh-so-nice-and-cheesy. My kids were gaga with delight when they saw the top take flight and pop up into something so puffy that they could not wait themselves to stuffy. After that they excitedly and without reserve, said that this dish was something to preserve! Now dear blog readers, don't you fret, I know I am the worst poet you've (n)ever met, So in the future, I'll stick to cooking and pans and leave the rhyming to people who actually can(s). The ingredients: 1 lb. ground beef(or ground turkey) 1 large onion, chopped 2 cups spaghetti sauce(can substitute with 1 can (15-ounce) tomato sauce plus one envelope spaghetti sauce mix)1 cup chopped pepperoni 1 pkg. (8-ounces) sliced mozzarella cheese( I used 2 cups of shredded mozzarella instead) 2 eggs 1 cup milk 1 Tbs. oil 1 cup flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese Enjoy!

Lasagna Bolognese, the 'OTHER' Lasagna - Parsley, Sage, and Sweet May 29, 2008 at 2:58 pm | Posted in Beef, Dinner, Italian, Lunch, Pasta, Pork | 93 Comments Tags: Add new tag, Bechamel sauce, Bolognese sauce, eggs, flour, italian, Lasagna Bolognese, Lasagne alla Bolognese, Main Dish, pasta, San Marzano tomatoes Scroll to end of post for printable recipe. Who doesn’t love a thick, steaming hunk of perfectly textured pasta sheets, layered with a well-seasoned combination of ricotta cheese, herbs and seasonings (with or without eggs to bind – but that’s another post or, uhh debate), lots of creamy, gooey mozzarella cheese, and a rich, meaty or just rich, perfectly seasoned tomato sauce? I know I do I do. However, this post, although about lasagna, isn’t about that lasagna. This post is about something just as yummy, but in a different way, and something I feel is incredibly underrated here in America. This kind of lasagna seems simple enough – pasta sheets, 2 sauces, and some Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. The last two components are the pasta and cheese.

Chicken Fried Rice Easy Chicken Fried Rice is so simple to make at home, and is way better, healthier and cheaper than take out!

Shrimp Dumplings Homemade dumplings are easier to make than you think, and you can completely customize your fillings! Can you believe the finale of Top Chef Seattle is almost done for the season?! Ahhhhh, where did the time go?! I really enjoyed this season, as heartbreaking as it was to see Josh eliminated one round shy of the finale. It seriously killed me that he was there, pursuing his dreams, missing the birth of his first child, and then getting eliminated so close to the end. My all-time favorite moment of the show was episode 11 when Josie and Kristen were butting heads and Kristen says, “I would prefer one of the dishwashers in place of Josie.” Anyway, as we’re getting closer and closer to the end, I am totally rooting for Brooke to be crowned Top Chef. My favorite part about watching Top Chef is seeing how these chefs adapt to their surroundings, and be pushed to make such amazing dishes with such a limited environment, like the Reynolds aluminum foil challenge.

Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce The day before we left for Mexico, several plants arrived in the mail that Mr. Prevention had ordered. The website said that they would ship the plants when the weather was appropriate for planting in our area (based on our zip code). Needless to say, the temps were in the high 30’s and putting little plants in the ground was not a wise choice. My dining room is officially a greenhouse. I’m not opposed to the gardening…only the crazy methodology which is being used to begin this endeavor. Herbs are so much easier. Tarragon was a last minute thought.

Shrimp Scampi Dip One of the best (and easiest) dips I’ve ever had, baked to absolute creamy, cheesy perfection! If I had to choose between shrimp scampi pasta versus this shrimp scampi dip, I choose this dip hands down every single time. No questions asked. Because, really, the pasta form doesn’t even come close to this. You get tons of cheesiness and creaminess that you just don’t get in the pasta. Just be sure to have some extra bread slices for dipping. One of the best (and easiest) dips I've ever had, baked to absolute creamy, cheesy perfection! Ingredients Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Notes *Chicken stock can be used for white wine as a non-alcoholic substitute.

Pierogi Lasagna I love Pierogies. Those little bundles of dough filled with potato and onions and sometimes sauerkraut. Come to think of it, anything stuffed in dough is pretty delicious in my book. Do I get to eat Pierogies often? No. Does anyone in my house like them besides me? Would I make a whole batch just for me? So when I found this recipe for Pierogi Lasagna just before the holidays I flipped. I made this for my New Years Eve party. The original recipe came from Mr. Even my husband, whose not a big onion lover loved this. Pierogi Lasagna adapted from a recipe at Mr. Preheat oven to 350.
