What is Broasted Chicken?
It is defined as being made using special equipment that combines deep-fat frying and pressure cooking.
Foods are first marinated and then covered with a special coating before being cooked.
Deep-fat frying produces a crispy coating on the chicken, while the high pressure holds in the moisture and juices without allowing the fat to penetrate
Making it at home I use a deep fryer and an oven. No restaurant grade special equipment here!
I make it by marinating and breading the chicken first. Then I deep fry it. I dry it off and oven bake until it is done.
This chicken is delicious! It tastes like fried chicken, but there is literally no grease and it was so tender!
I eat a lot of chicken meals and my favorite has to be broasted chicken.
This tried and true recipe is so moist and yummy and I love the fact that it is mostly baked and not deep fried.
I almost feel guilt free when I splurge.
Adding a fresh salad, glazed carrots, and smashed redskin potatoes rounds out this comfort meal.
If you make homemade rolls this meal is fit for a queen.
There is a very popular little chicken shop around the corner of my previous home.
The aroma of the broasted chicken can be smelled in the parking lot.
This recipe is very close to theirs. My family loves it!
This American Goulash was dinner a few weeks ago when I was too sick to bother much with raw meat.
Don’t get me wrong I am not squeamish when it comes to preparing liver or cleaning a chicken.
I eat my meat on the rare side, especially off the BBQ.
But when I am not feeling well or the meat has been in the refrigerator over night I tend to not want to work with it.
I guess that is a left over pregnancy phobia when I couldn’t even look at raw meat.
This goulash was the perfect recipe for a quick dump and go meal. A one pot wonder.
A comfort meal. With garlic bread.
Ready in under an hour. My kind of meal.
I hope your kind of meal too!
The noodles were al dente. The veggies perfectly seasoned.
Just the kind of dish that my entire family enjoys.
The addition of garlic bread, even the frozen kind, topped off the night.
Think Peanut Butter and Jelly is just for kids?
Or maybe a nice appetizer on crackers or celery?
Think again, my friends.
Because today I took it to another level.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake!
It is made with my go to classic cheesecake filling, with a bit of crushed peanuts and strawberry jam, sitting in my basic graham cracker crust looks a bit plain at first glance.
Looking closer you can see a hint of jam swirled in the top of the cheesecake.
It is the perfect blend of familiar flavors all wrapped up in a nutty deliciousness just for you!!
Sorry folks there is no chocolate or Hot Fudge here!
If you are a die hard it is easy to add. Totally sweet enough without going overboard even when you add your homemade or store bought topping.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake can be made with any preserves you choose.
You can even add a bit of fresh fruit on the side for those special occasions when you serve it to guests.
A dollop of Homemade Whipped Cream will make that extra statement on the plate.
The other day I had been craving some peanut butter goodness but wanted to add some unusual flavors to it.
As I was making my shopping list I found myself adding peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese and graham cracker crumbs along with other items I needed.
Since I need to be careful with how much I have on hand due to a smaller pantry, I convinced myself I needed to use up the end of my favorites.
I knew I had plenty of time to make the cheesecake and run to the store for my few items.
When I got back I saw my granddaughter had pulled out the cheesecake and was letting it cool on the rack.
Later when it was ready to serve I cut her the first piece.
After all, she did help make it!
The family loved the flavors. I never gave away what the flavors were to make it a surprise.
The look on their faces as they realized it was a Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake made it all that more special.
I will definitely be making that cheesecake again.
I hope you will give this recipe a try.
Let me know the changes you make in the comments. Enjoy!
Full of nutritious and warm goodness this meal can be ready to serve in under 30 Minutes.
Celery, onion, garlic, chicken, milk, peas and broth nestle inside a light fluffy pastry make this a perfect dinner or lunch option.
When you want something ready in a hurry and provide a fully healthy and delicious entree for your entire family. This is the answer.
Hungry hubby and the kids will ask you to make this pot pie as much as mac and cheese or hot dogs.
Substitute beef or turkey, or leave out the meat and add broccoli or green beans to change up your dinner!
This dish can be changed up to satisfy any dietary restrictions you may be asked to make.
This pot pie is delicious and frugal as well. It is the answer for the family on the go.
