Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 

This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

  6. Oh my kids might actually EAT this. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. I'm not likely to buy a bottle of Italian dressing. Would some Italian herbs steeped in olive oil and drizzled on be worth a try?

  8. We love chicken in my house and have it at least twice a week. I just grilled some breasts last night on my new Lodge oven top grill and loved the taste! Your recipe looks delicious and will have to try it:)

  9. Wow--that looks really good. We have either chicken or turkey most days at our house. I love finding new recipes. I'd make it tonight if my chicken was thawed. Thanks for the recipe.

    StephenC, I'm usually not big on Italian dressing, until I tried Robusto. Your Italian herbs would be incredible, I'm sure!

    The Wife of a Dairyman, that new grill sounds great and I'll have to send my chicken over your way to try it!

    Sheila, we eat a lot of chicken also and Bill wishes we would eat a lot more turkey.

  19. Rita, cool! Then you know exactly how delicious it is!

  20. love baking chicken with breading never tried the seasoning mix what a great idea!

  21. Sounds yummy; love your site. I bet you served a mesclun salad though since mescaline is a psychedelic hallucinogen derived from peyote cacti. ;-)

  27. Can't wait to try this one. Love your recipies.

  28. Looking good--I love chicken and maybe Mr. Ken would eat this too.



  29. So I've just started eating chicken again (putting my vegetarianism on hold for a bit) and this recipe looks like a perfect dinner meal. I would love to serve this with a fresh loaf of Italian bread. Yum!

  30. This sure looks good! Can't wait to try it out!

  31. Pegasuslegend, it's good. Thanks for the visit!

    musingegret, thanks. Strange, I see it both names. Mesclun works.

  35. Looks scrumptious and so easy! Thanks for sharing!

  36. YUM! That pork looks incredible! I love the great little trivia too!

  37. Oops...I meant to post that on your pork tenderloin post! sorry :)

  38. I make my own Italian dressing so if you don't have the store bought kind it's still easy to whip it up. Oil, vinegar, and Italian herbs. has a great recipe for it.

  39. it look so good,
    visit my blog too

  40. Do you cover the chicken when it is baking or leave it uncovered? Also, what form of Parmesan cheese do you use? i have the grated kind from Kraft i was hoping to use.

  41. I love poached fish or chicken, but I seem to do something wrong. I think I should have been starting with cold water instead of simmering. I am going to try your technique. And the leek sounds like a good idea also. 🙂

  42. "This sounds wonderful and I’m making it tomorrow night! The question I have is: I don’t have Sherry (or any alcohol) is there something else I can use? I don’t want to buy a bottle use a little then have it go bad.

    I love your recipes and have tried quite a few of them!! Delete Skype Account Watch Cartoons Online Sports Streaming Sites Movie Streaming Sites Speed Dating Questions

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
