SWEET & SPICY CHICKEN

Ingredients:
2-3 lbs skinless/boneless chicken cut into 1" cubes
Dry Taco Seasoning
Red bell Pepper/Green Bell Pepper/Onion Diced
1 1/2 cups Salsa (Mild/ Medium/ Hot)
1 1/2 cups Peach Jam/Preserves/Jelly (should be smooth textured, not chunky)
Steamed Jasmine Rice

Sprinkle dry Taco seasoning over chicken, brown in 2Tbs. oil along with peppers and onions just until peppers start getting soft.
(Hint: If you use Chunky Salsa, you can skip adding peppers and onions)
Add Salsa and Peach Jam, stir until well mixed, cover and simmer low for about 15 minutes.
(Another hint: After you stir well, taste. Now is the time to adjust sweeter or spicier by adding more salsa or jam)
Let set 10 minutes and serve over the steamed Jasmine Rice.

James

1 Stick Butter
2 Cups Powdered Sugar

Optional add on's: Chocolate Chips,Butter Scotch Chips, Any Form of Chopped Nut.


In a Double Boiler Melt Butter, Add Peanut Butter Mix till Smooth over Medium Heat, Stir in Powdered Sugar SLOWLY so that it does not clump. When all mixed and Smooth pour into a Buttered Baking Pan, Cover with tin Foil and Cool in the Fridge.

VERY SWEET be careful if you have to watch your Sugar intake.

Here's my favorite. It's easy, and delicious. It's a whole dinner BTW.

What you need:

Boneless Chicken Breast (I use one per person)
Potatoe Rolls (but others work too, I just like potato rolls)
Mozerella cheese
American cheese
Fresh Brocceli (you can use frozen too, but fresh is better)
Spray butter
Spices: Thyme, sage, basil, seasoning salt
Italian dressing

About 2-3 hours prior to cooking, pour Italian dressing into a bowl and put thawed chicken breast in it to marinate. Also add some spices to the mix at your wish. I like flavorful food, so I add quite a bit. Don't forget to flip the chicken every hour or so.

When you are ready to begin cooking, get your brocceli and cut it into bit size pieces, and put it in a microwaveable safe bowl. This is also a good time to start the grill.

After the grill is started, put the brocceli in the microwave for 5-7 minutes on high with a cover on it. I use press ans seal to cover it.

Put the chicken on the grill.

In a small bowl, mix spray butter, thyme, sage, and seasoning salt and mix. Cut the rolls in half and place on a tinfoil lined cookie sheet. Spread a small amount of butter/spice mix over them. Once the butter is spread on (use a spoon) place a small amount of mozerella cheese on top.

Go check the chicken. Flip it when the edges start to turn white. Times will vary, depending on the grill, location of the chicken on the grill, weather, etc.

When the brocceli is done, mix it a bit, and place in microwave for 3ish more minutes.

When the brocceli is done, put pieces of american cheese over it so the heat from the brocceli melts the cheese.

Check the chicken, it is done when it is no longer squishy. When it's hard, it's done.

When the chicken is done, turn the grill off, and put the rolls in the oven and broil them. Grab the chicken off of the grill, and place on plates. Get the rolls out of the oven when the edges start to burn.

Place everything on the plates, and serve. It's amazing. I made it last night...haha

Rosemary Garlic Roasted Chicken
1 whole chicken, rinsed
salt (kosher) and pepper to taste
1 small onion, quartered
chopped fresh rosemary or a few sprigs
minced garlic 2 cloves maybe

add quartered/halved red potatoes, and baby carrots to roasting pan. Add chicken broth so veggies are 1/2 way covered, or more for leftover chicken & veggie soup!

Rub chicken with kosher salt and pepper. Put chicken on rack in roasting pan and stuff with onion, garlic and rosemary. Make rub with olive oil, garlic powder, and chopped rosemary. Baste before going into oven, and every 10-15 min throughout cooking to keep skin moist. Bake at 350 for 2/12 hours or until juices run clear. Do not baste the last 30 min or so to get nice, crispy skin. Serve with drained veggies from bottom of pan, and a salad. (the carrots take up a lot of chicken flavor, the potatoes don't soak up as much, very good!)

I didn't give exact directions on how to season... just go by your sense of smell I usually add 2-3 sprigs of rosemary in the cavity, and add enough to the rub to make it look nice. I also use garlic powder in the olive oil to distribute the flavor evenly, but some minced can also be added. The last time I made this was with a 9 lb home grown chicken... wow!

* Can be done with cornish game hens... just adjust seasonings accordingly.

I work in institutional foodservice, so I don't have any "normal" sized recipes, lol. I have one if someone finds themselves having to feed a small town in Nebraska or something.

Meatloaf for a whole lot of people (approximately 235)

50 lbs. ground beef
6 medium onions - diced
6 medium green peppers ( bell peppers)-diced
1 1/2 cups garlic powder
1/8 cup cumin
1/4 cup celery seed or celery flakes
1/2 cup seasoning salt
1/4 cup regular salt
1/2 cup pepper
90 medium eggs
4 loaves of bread, finely ground

Mix above ingredients by hand. Portion with a 4 oz. ice cream scoop and place on lightly greased sheet pan. Press down to form a patty. Bake at 325F until almost done.

Topping:

Two gallons ketchup
Two bags of brown sugar
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
5 oz. worchestershire sauce

Apply 2 oz. of ketchup sauce over each patty , then place meatloaf back into oven until ketchup begins to carmalize ( look thick and a slightly darker color).

My meatloaf..
1 lb ground beef{I like sirloin}
1/4 chopped small sweet onion
1 egg
3-4 pieces stale bread of any type
salt,pepper, & garlic powder to taste
milk
ketchup

Preheat oven to 400*
In a large bowl mix meat, onion, spices & egg. In another bowl pour about 1/2cup or more milk over bread ,smush up & pour into meat mixture.{should be pretty sloppy} Place mixture into loaf pan.{ square will do,just form the meat with your hands} top with ketchup,bake for 1 hour. You can put some baked potatoes alongside the pan as it bakes, or even better make homemade mashed potatoes.

i do shepherd's pie like this, since i've been a vegetarian for the past 10 years.

1 lb. of soy ground beef sauteed in a pan with cumin, salt, pepper and minced garlic until cooked through. preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
and i do that while boiling 4 decent sized russet potatoes that have been quartered.
i mix in yellow squash that has been thinly sliced and the slices quartered, then one can of corn and one can of green peas.
i also cut up about 20 or so peeled baby carrots into fairly thin chunks.
i cook the soy meat, carrots, peas, corn and squash until the squash goes faintly transparent.
i strain the water from the potatoes and mash them in a bowl with milk, garlic salt and a fork. i might add pepper as needed.

spread the mashed potatoes (skins and all) into the bottom of a larger casserole pan. spread the soy meat and vegetables on the top and top all of that off with a thick layer of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese.

i put that in the oven for maybe 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted.

mmm, delicious. easy, fairly quick. and it's always easy to substitute any vegetables that you prefer. i also like my carrots pretty crunchy. soggy carrots are not tasty to me whatsoever.

enjoy! i will post my mexican lasagna recipe tomorrow.

Keep them coming i am a carnivore but my 12 year old daughter has chosen to be vegetarian and hasn't ate meat other than fish in over a year and its hard for dad the massive meat eater too cook for her!The really funny thing is that this is the child that at 2 years old would have her mom call me at the bar/steak house i worked and and insist that i bring her home Fillet Mignon Or Prime Rib and at 2 she even knew which days they had prime rib. She loved her Medium Rare Steaks i think more than i do. But she has Stuck to it for over a year! She even got us a free meal on a bet with my boss, she at 2 ate a 32 oz medium rare steak and then started on mine!
