This Friday night dinner was a serious favorite. I needed to pull something together from what I had at home. I had two little chicken breasts leftover from something so I breaded those with an egg I added some hot sauce to and panko bread crumbs. Then I pan fried them (just a little Kerrygold butter) and then topped them with blue cheese and more hot sauce (leftover from the buffalo chicken chili). Like a healthier boneless wing. Plus some steamed broccoli and roasted blue potatoes.
Next, crockpot falafel. These are before they were cooked. These were, unfortunately, not a winner. The recipe said it was fine to overlap them, but it wasn’t. Any part touching another falafel didn’t cool. And they did not get even remotely crispy. They taste fine, but the texture is so terrible I don’t think I’ll find them.
When I felt so sick on Monday I couldn’t bring myself to eat falafel. So I went and bought these Stacy’s pita chips. I had never tried the garden veggie medley ones and they are GOOD! I’ve had way too many of those with hummus over the last few days.
Finally, lightened up creamy cajun chicken pasta. I ended up using 8oz. of pasta rather than 6oz. so I made four servings. I thought a pound of chicken between three servings seemed like a lot. I didn’t increase the sauce at all so it wasn’t really saucy, but I still really liked it. This is definitely a winner.
