This dinner smelled really good while cooking. The mustard and barbecue sauce gave off aromas which reminded me of chicken wings on a summer picnic. This recipe idea came from the Hannaford’s Fresh magazine I picked up at the health expo. You may be able to find the original and others at the Hannaford site. I offer my version here and keep in mind, all you Vegetarians, I used Quorn Naked Chicken breasts. For my husband, we used 4 boneless chicken breasts, flattened with a mallet to make them thin.
- 1/4 cup Barbecue Sauce – your favorite
- 1/4 cup mustard – your favorite
- 2 TBS olive oil
- 2 TBS Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper – use as much or as little depending on how hot you like it
- 4 boneless chicken breasts or 4 to 6 QUORN naked cutlets
- 1 1/2 cups panko* or regular bread crumbs
- celery and low fat ranch dressing on the side
Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix the first 6 ingredients together and put in a large food bag. Add your chicken/quorn and let marinate for 15 minutes. Spray a foil pan lined with foil with non stick spray. Put the crumbs in a dish so you can coat the chicken/quorn. Remove the meat/pseudo meat, and coat with crumbs, place on foil lined pan. Bake 15 minutes.Turn over and cook an additional 10. If using Quorn, bake 10 minutes, turn and cook another 5 – 10.
Serve with Rainbow Cauliflower
- One head of cauliflower, steam until tender.
- 1/2 each of a red, orange/yellow, green bell pepper – thin sliced
Preheat oven to 350 F. Put cooked cauliflower in baking dish. Top and toss with pepper slices. Pepper and salt to taste. Add a sprinkle of dill and bake for 20 – 30 minutes.
*The Japanese refer to bread crumbs as “panko”. They make it differently than we make our bread crumbs. A softer, more tender bread is used and only the centers – no bread crust. This will result in a more crunchy, lighter texture.
This morning, the news was reporting that on this day, we celebrate the anatomically impossible Barbie Doll birthday. Now, I have a calendar that indicates it was a few weeks ago! Good thing I didn’t pay for that calendar. Makes me wonder when it will indicate we should be celebrating Easter?!!!!
Hope everything went your way today.
