The Swedish Chef is back!--or--Zee Svedeesh Cheff is beck! Bork Bork Bork! The highly anticipated sequel to The Kitchen Adventures Of Chef Boyar 'B' is FINALLY HERE!
Ok, so sequels can get a bad wrap at times but every once in a while, a good one can poke it's head up out of the ground and not send everyone running for the hills...right? I mean, there was the Godfather II...
Teen Wolf Too...
Wait--how did that get there?
I am really do like putting my culinary skills to the test try to broaden my horizons a bit as far as what I eat. I try to infuse my diet with more vegetables and more variety! Who says eating clean and healthy has to be dull? I have shared some of these recipes in the past but I thought I would share again since it never hurts to find a new, healthy, fun, and great tasting recipe!
#1 Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken
I rolled the chicken in the honey mustard to give it a good coat, then rolled it in the pretzel crumbs. Baked for about 45 minutes. This turned out really well flavor wise and the chicken stayed nice and moist. I will definitely make this again as well.
I am not playing around here people! I made that honey mustard myself! Ok, I didn't go grab a bee hive or anything like that...don't get smart! But I did mix, 1/2 cup EVOO, 1/2 cup dijon mustard, 1/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup water, 3 tbsp red wine vinegar, salt, pepper. Blend together. Pretty easy and REALLY good!
#2 Crock Pot Honey Soy Chicken
1 1/2 lb of chicken tenderloin, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup honey, 1TB olive oil, 1 tsp onion powder, 2 cloves garlic (minced), 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. Put frozen chicken in crock pot and poured the other ingredients (minced together) over the top. Cooked on low over night.
I also made some brown rice and combined the two. Let me tell you, this is THE BEST chicken dish I have made so far! SOOOOO GOOOOOOD!
#3 Pineapple Angel Food Cake
So simple! Mix one box of angel food cake and one 20oz can of pineapple tidbits. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. NO FAT! REALLY GOOD! It is soft and full of flavor! A good alternative if you are really craving cake.
Making this food does take up a good chunk of time on my Sunday's, but it is really worth it in the end. It helps me plan my meals and helps steer me in the right direction to making good choices for my diet. Not to mention, it is kind of fun to try new things! Plus, I get a nice sense of accomplishment when I make something so healthy that turns out to be so good! Open your minds to new things!
Embrace Your Possibilities
