Peach-Glazed Chicken

  • 1 can (about 16 oz) peaches in heavy syrup, undrained
  • 1 pouch dry onion soup
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1. In covered blender or food processor, combine peaches, soup mix, brown sugar and lemon juice. Blend until smooth; set aside.
2. Meanwhile in a 10 inch skillet over medium-high heat, in hot butter, cook half the chicken 10 minutes or until browned on both sides. Remove; set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken. Spoon off fat.
3. Stir in peach mixture. Return chicken to skillet. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, stirring occasionally.
4. Serve chicken and peach sauce with rice.
This is a super fast and easy meal and a nice summer meal too!


These are super YUMMY!

2.5 Cups flour
1 Cup Margarine
3/4 Cup milk
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 egg yolk, beaten

FILLING: Mix all together
5 apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 Cup sugar
2 TBSP cornstarch

Mix flour, margarine and salt. Mix egg and milk into the dry ingredients to make pastry dough. Divide the dough in half and roll to fit a 12x16 cookie sheet (the cookie sheet I used was only 9x13). Fill with the apple filling. Roll top dough and crimp the edges together. Brush the top with milk. Bake at 400* for 20-25 minutes. Drizzle with glaze made with powdered sugar, water and vanilla.

Chicken Tetrazzini

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 can (13 3/4 oz) chicken broth
  • 1 package (8 0z) cream cheese, cubed
  • 3/4 (3 oz) grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
  • 1 package ( 7 oz) spaghetti, cooked, drained
  • 1 jar or can (6 oz) whole mushrooms, drained
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken or turkey

1. Cook and stir onion and celery in butter in large skillet on medium heat until tender. Add broth, cream cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; stir on low heat until cream cheese is melted.

2. Add remaining ingredients except remaining Parmesan cheese; toss lightly. Spoon into 12 x 8 inch baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

* I used 1/3 fat cream cheese and about 1/2 the butter and it turned out fine!

Tomato and Basil Baked Fish

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 firm mild white fish fillets (cod, flounder) about 1 1/3 lbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped and seeded tomatoes (or more)
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chopped basil

1. Heat oven to 375. Coat bottom of 13x9 pan with 1 Tbsp oil. Chop bread to form bread crumbs (I used my food processor).
2. Saute crumbs in remaining oil over medium -high heat. Stirring often, until they begin to brow. Stir in garlic and Italian seasoning. Cook and stir until golden brown. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper.
3. Pat fish fillets dry; place skin side down in prepared pan. Season with salt and pepper. Combine tomatoes and bread crumbs; cover and top fillets with mixture. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Bake 20 to 25 min until fish flakes easily. Top with fresh basil.

* Thing I did different I used skinless tilapia fillets. And I used dried basil not fresh and then I mixed it in with the tomatoes. It was a really simple dish and super delicious.

Bacon Turkey Southwestern Wrap

I had a great wrap at hoagie place and duplicated it at home. It was nice to have something different than a sandwich for a change.

- Spinach Tortilla ( That is what I had at the sandwich place but didn't have any at home so just used my whole wheat tortillas)
- Shredded Lettuce
- Turkey breast deli meat
- Cooked bacon
- Shredded cheese
- Chipotle Mayo ( this is the key ingredient. I got it at my local Ridley's, trust me it is awesome!)

Warm tortilla, add everything inside of tortilla and wrap it up.
Simple, easy and delicious!
