1/4 Cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T soy sauce
2 t dried oregano
1 t garlic powder
6 skinned chicken breast halves – I used a cut up fryer
Combine first 6 ingredients. Place chicken in an ungreased oblong baking dish. Pour half of butter mixture over chicken.
Bake at 375 for 45 minutes, and pour remaining butter mixture over chicken.
Bake 15 more minutes or until no longer pink.
Remove excess fat from pan drippings with a fat separator, and serve the pan drippings over hot cooked rice, if desired.
Here was another new recipe – Burger Boats. This is good for a quick, easy supper or lunch.
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 16 oz. loaf French bread
1/2 C shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Brown ground beef, green peppers, and onions in large nonstick skillet, stirring until beef crumbles; drain fat.
Add soup and next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium high heat; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally; set aside.
Cut a wedge of bread from the top of the bread loaf. Remove pieces of bread from inside of loaf, leaving a 1-inch shell.
Position knife blade in food processor bowl; add bread pieces and wedge. Process until crumbs are fine and uniform in size; spread evenly on a baking sheet.
Bake bread shell and crumbs at 350 degrees until lightly toasted; cool.
Stir 1 1/2 cups toasted breadcrumbs into ground beef mixture; reserve any extra breadcrumbs for other uses.
Spoon meat mixture into bread shell; top with cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees until cheese melts. (For a softer loaf, wrap in aluminum foil before baking) Yield: 4 servings
I made our Valentine Dinner on Saturday because we have plans to be away for “V”Day. =)
I used ginger ale instead of beer, since we don’t drink it or buy it, and they didn’t turn out as great as the reviews! Oh, well, live and learn!
Toasted Parmesan Bread
When I made the asparagus, I did NOT boil it. I simply added it to the pan that the breadcrumbs had been cooked in, added a little olive oil and cooked for about 3 minutes. I like my asparagus on the crisp side. This was a good side dish.
And for the Grand Finale’… Chocolate Cherry Cake
So, now tell me, what’s been cookin’ in your kitchen?
Happy Valentine’s Day,
