This week has me caught up on new recipes. Hopefully I can stay on track now.
The first recipe is Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken. As usual I made a minor change to the recipe. I left out the spinach this time and used chicken tenders. I already had the chicken tenders in the freezer. I loved how quickly the dish came together. It had three steps: cooking the chicken, cooking the mushrooms, and making the sauce. I opted to serve this with mashed potatoes as I had some that needed to be used. W said that he would rather have it with potatoes. He loved the dish and was happy to learn that it had cheese. At first he thought I had made lumpy gravy. This will definitely go into our regular rotation. I neglected to take a picture of the finished dish so hope over to The Recipe Critic to see her lovely photos.
Keeping with the forgetful theme - I did not take photos of the Seasoned Rice Pilaf from Good Cheap Eats. I was pressed for time the day I made this. I ended up just tossing everything in the rice cooker. At first I thought it was going to be bland, but it turned out really good. I might up the amount of chicken broth next time. It was better than the boxed variety as it was not overwhelmed by salt. This is definitely a budget friendly recipe. It made a large amount with inexpensive ingredients especially if you make your own chicken broth. I will absolutely make this again
I am planning to make wheat thins next week. I know stores sell them, but I am trying to get away from processed foods.
