This week Pamela of Cookies with Boys hosts our weekly recipe with Craving Ellie In My Belly group. The recipe is Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches right off the web so you can click the link and make this one your self. It’s good and it’s easy. Not much cooking, just mixing for this recipe. Naturally, I had to find a chicken substitute and it was once again that old faithful “Quorn“.
I had Ted and Teddy set up their own plates for photos. I take no credit for the cosmetic success/failure of the following:
Ted said “How did I get pulled into this one?” Guess he just likes eating and volunteering the occasional comment..no laboreous procedures please.
Should we take a vote? ____TEDDY _____ TED _____JOANNE (no pressure, but I AM the one who keeps this blog )
canola oil, chopped onion, minced garlic, tomato sauce & paste *I used left over pasta sauce made the other day using fresh garden tomatoes from Ted’s brother Richard. So I omitted the tomato sauce, paste and water. Apple cider vinegar, molasses…lets talk about molasses…
You hear the Gurus of health telling us to use blackstrap molasses over the other stuff, but what’s the difference between regular unsulphured molasses and blackstrap molasses? Blackstrap molasses has more iron, calcium, and magnesium. It is also a little less sweet since it is the result of the third boiling of the cane sugar syrup. No sulphur dioxide has been added to either unsulphured or the blackstrap molasses. The comparison between nutrition labels is as follows:
Unsulphured: Calories=60, Fat=0, Sodium=15mg, Potassium=150mg, Carbs=15g, Protein=0, Calcium=4%, Iron=4%, Magnesium 2%.
Blackstrap: Calories=60, Fat=0, Sodium=25mg, Potassium=240mg, Carbs=14g, Protein=0, Calcium=20%, Iron=25%, Magnesium25%.
Now back to the rest of the ingredients… black pepper, liquid smoke, ROTISSERIE CHICKEN, whole wheat rolls, and green leaf lettuce.
The rotisserie chicken took all the credit in our house. No recognition for Ellie Krieger and no recognition for Joanne. A simple ..”that rotisserie chicken is always so good..really tender”. Of course I chimed in “but what about the flavor..you know I added the flavors to it”. “Oh yeah. That’s good too”.
The dinner was a success once again. I really enjoyed my meatless version. I should have added some hot chile pepper to my sauce but it was pretty good even without it. I did cut the molasses to only 1 TBS for my version. Ted and Teddy loved the tender GROCERY STORE bird as well as the sauce.
Good going Pam. Great pick for this week’s CEimB. We like quick, weekday meals.
