We made chicken and dumplings.

1. Get a small, whole chicken and take off the skin.

2. Boil it for about an hour, skimming as much fat as you can.

3. Take chicken out of the pot. While it’s cooling, mix the fat with a little flour to make dumpling dough.

5. Cut out your dumplings. Toss ’em in the boiling broth.

6. Shred up the chicken meat and put it back in the pot.

7. Simmer it for about another half hour.

That’s it! Two ingredients, unless we’re counting water.

@caffeiney:  It’s sooo easy. I don’t have the link handy but it’s basically this:

Pound down your chicken or turkey so that it’s thin

Mix mozzarella, pizza or italian seasoning, salt/pepper, garlic and pizza sauce. I didn’t really measure anything I just kind of mixed and tasted until I thought it was right.

Spread mixture evenly onto the meat and roll up.

Put seam side down on a baking sheet with foil (I used a pan with sides and I’m glad I did because I didn’t seal them enough and they leaked).

Spread more pizza sauce over the meat and add a few slices of pepperoni (we used turkey pepperoni because it’s a little healthier). I also added some more mozarella.

Bake on 375 for about 30-35 minutes. 

I know if you follow the exact measurements from the recipe it’sonly 180 calories per chicken breast and I was full after 1 and a little bit of another. I made a little more of the mixture than they called for but not much.

 

This weekend I’m making slow-cooker jambalaya with pepperoni and shrimp. Yummmmm.

@bestbuddies:  I guess I could have just used the quinoa (it was already prepared) but I had my heart set on the cheese sauce so I put it in the fridge for tonight 🙂

Ooh, I love reading what other people are making/eating. Gives me so many good ideas for the nights when I cook (DH LOVES to cook, so he does most of it. I like to impress him when its my turn).

Tonight I made buffalo-ranch chicken strips (roll chicken breast pieces in ranch and hot sauce, and then in wholegrain bread crumbs, bake), coleslaw and sweet potato wedges. Yum!

That bacon-wrapped chicken sounds super yummy. And those Crockpot Tacos sound fantastic, too.

Tonight, we’re having leftover meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and some kind of vegetable! Probably steamed broccoli (yum)

Tonight it’s roasted butternut squash soup with infused chili oil, because I’ve been craving it for days.

DH was home sick today and made Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crockpot.  It was delicious!
