Breakfast Pizza

Monday, January 31, 2011

This one is easy, and really requires no cooking hardly. If you can scramble an egg, you can do it!

What you'll need:
Shredded Cheese
Pizza Sauce
Scrambled eggs

Scramble your eggs like normal. In a separate pan warm a tortilla on low. Spread on the sauce. Add cheese. Raise the temp a little bit so the cheese starts melting. Add the finished scrambled egg on top and let it melt into the cheese. I like it when the tortilla is slightly crisp.

You could add bacon, or even fresh spinach as well. It was fast, easy and delicious! A great afternoon snack too!

I don't have a "recipe" perse, just a basic way of making them.

1-2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk (optional if you use buttermilk to make)
2 teaspoons baking powder
A couple of shakes of salt
2 HEAPING tablespoons of vegetable shortening
Milk (to consistency)

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add in the shortening and then use your hands to combine it. You have enough shortening when the flour kind of holds form when you squeeze your hands together. Add milk to consistency. For a "drop" biscuit it needs to be runnier, and for a rolled out biscuit it needs to be firmer.

Also, you can add garlic powder and cheddar cheese for YUMMY biscuits (and dill!)!

Chicken a La King

Can y'all tell I make a lot of chicken?

This is something that Carl requested from me, so, I guess I had to cook it, eh?

You will need:

2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 can chicken stock
frozen veggies of your choice
biscuit mix (Or my recipe for biscuits!)
Shredded cheese (optional)
Cornstarch for a slurry

Start off by sauteing your onion in a little olive oil. Add salt and pepper. While it's sauteing, cut your chicken into bite sized pieces. Toss with the onion, and let brown. You want it to be MOSTLY done, but not dry. Once it's mostly done, add your frozen veggies. I added about 2 cups of veggies, one of corn and one of pees (it's also good with fresh carrots!). Let that cook a minute, then add in the stock. Make a cornstarch flurry and add in. Bring to a low boil.

Meanwhile, make your biscuit dough. You want to make a "drop" biscuit consistency.

Pour the chicken mixture into a baking dish. Spoon big biscuits on top. Put in the middle of a preheated 400 degree oven.

Bake until the biscuits are mostly browned. Add shredded cheese (optional) and bake until bubbly. Enjoy!

Mustard Chicken

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I know it doesn't sound all the delicious... but it is.

I got a 10 pound bag of Chicken Thighs and Legs for .48 cents a pound the other day. I get real bored just breading them and baking them though, so last night I decided to try something different.

I squeezed about a fourth of a cup of dijion mustard, another fourth of a cup of white wine, and two tablespoons or so of olive oil into a bowl. Then I added dill, garlic and pepper and mixed it up. It stays well homogenized because of the mustard. I salted the chicken, and dipped it in.

I baked the chicken at 450 for an hour. Half way through I spooned the rest of the mustard mixture over the chicken.

It was amazing. Quick, easy, and yummy!
