Fried Chicken Breasts with Roasted Red Potatoes and Peppers

This was a very yummy dinner! I didn't use a recipe for the chicken but will tell you round about what I did. Sorry for no exact recipe.

I got a package of boneless skinless chicken breasts at Kroger and asked them to butterfly them (only separated completely). I hate touching raw chicken so I was thrilled that they would cut the chicken for me!

I rinsed the breasts and then put the between pieces of wax paper and pounded them a little thinner. Then patted them dry with paper towels.

In a bowl I put about 2 1/2 cups of flour and sprinkled in some italian seasoning, season salt, salt, and pepper. I didn't measure any of these just eyeballed it. Mix well.

In another bowl, I pour in about 1- 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk. Then added about 1/4-1/2 cup of buffalo sauce.

I first dipped the chicken in the buttermilk/buffalo sauce and then in the flour mixture.

In a medium nonstick skillet I had about 1/4-1/2 inch of oil heating. When it was heated I fried the chicken a few pieces at a time until done. I checked with a thermometer to make sure it was done.

This was really tasty. I think if I had thought ahead it would have been awesome to let the chicken marinate in the buttermilk/buffalo sauce mixture. And I would increase the buffalo sauce. This was so tasty!

Roasted Red Potatoes with Peppers
3 1/2 pounds of red potatoes (chunked, about 1-1 1/2 inch pieces)
3 bell peppers (chopped in large chunks, I used red, orange and yellow)
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/4 cup of oil
1-2 tbsp of italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine butter, oil and seasonings. Then in a larger bowl, add the potatoes and peppers. Pour oil/butter mixture over the potatoes and peppers. Toss with your hands to get well coated.

Spread out on a large heavy baking sheet. Bake covered with foil for 45 minutes. Then uncover and finish cooking for another 20-30 minutes.

On the potatoes, I actually used 1/2 stick of butter and 1/3 cup of oil. However, that was way too much. It was still yummy but I kept thinking about all of those extra calories and fat I was consuming. So I have lightened the oil in this recipe. You might could even take the butter down a little too. I will leave that up to you. :)

I felt everything was well seasoned but you could also just combine the butter and oil and then place on the baking sheet. Then you could add salt and pepper. That way each one gets enough. These potatoes and peppers are so yummy! Hope you try them soon!

I also wouldn't have thought of covering with foil the first 45 minutes so I need to credit that to The Pioneer Woman and her recipe for Roasted Garlic and New Potatoes. Don't they look yummy?

Happy Eating!

I decided to add that this meal cost me less than $5! The chicken was on sale for $1.88/lb (Total cost was almost $3), the peppers were on sale for .99 for a 3 pack at Aldi's and the potatoes were on sale for $1 a 5 pound bag and I didn't even use the whole bag. So a very frugal, yet tasty, meal!

That looks really good. What is buffalo sauce? fivewinks(at)cox(dot)net
It's in the hot sauce area. It's the kind of sauce you use for buffalo wings. It's very yummy!

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

1 tbsp oilive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 yellow onions, diced

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

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 …
