Bargain Meal of the Week
copycat Chick-fil-a sandwiches
1 pound of chicken ($2.50)
pack of buns ($1.50)
french fries (generic should be available for about $1.50 or so a bag)

Entire meal for about $6.50-7 when you account for conidments and other ingredients.

Now, I don't have a pressure cooker so I think I'd be tempted to use a regular skillet or maybe cast iron and fry these. I've not made this recipe before but I do like their sandwiches so I think it'd be a yummy dinner to try.

Copycat Chick-Fil-A-Chicken Sandwich

Yield: 4 servings

3 c Peanut oil
1 Egg
1 c Milk
1 c Flour
2 1/2 tb Powdered sugar
1/2 ts Pepper
2 tb Salt
2 Skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved
4 Plain hamburger buns
2 tb Melted butter
8 Dill pickle slices

Heat the peanut oil in a pressure cooker over med. Heat to about
400F.

In a small bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pepper, and salt.
Dip each piece of chicken in milk until it is fully moistened.
Roll the moistened chicken in the flour mixture until completely coated.

Drop all four chicken pieces into the hot oil and close the pressure
cooker. When steam starts shooting through the pressure release, set
the timer for 3-1/2 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, spread a coating of melted butter on the face of each bun.

When the chicken is done, remove it from the oil and drain or blot on paper towels.
Place two pickles on each bottom bun; add a chicken breast, then the
top bun.

To make a deluxe chicken sandwich, simply add two tomato
slices and a leaf of lettuce. Mayonnaise would be a great addition as well.

Come back next week to see what meals I find for Food Lion!
God bless,
Amanda

I love to make these. I don't have a pressure fryer so I use my regular deep fryer and it works great!

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

Ingredients:
½ stick of butter
1 tbsp oilive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 yellow onions, diced

2-3 cups of cooked chicken breasts, diced

8 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups of half & half
Salt and pepper to taste

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
