Basil Pesto Alfredo Chicken

enough said right? YUM!

Do you ever get in one of those moods that you just absolutely need to try something new? I picked up this magazine the other day that was just chicken recipes. Everything from what to do with those roasted chickens you buy at the store, to how to properly cut the chicken, and chicken wings… its just absolutely full of new recipes I just can’t wait to try!

The BF and I have been talking about getting more healthy and watching portion sizes. We started splitting meat such as steak and pork chops into bags of one each, so we can have a full meal with vegetables and starch and meat. Well just starch and meat for the BF I guess.. I wish he would eat more veggies. But hey, this was definitely a huge hit with him so thats a plus!

 

Basil Pesto Alfredo Chicken

spaghetti for two
 1 (1o ounce) jar of alfredo pasta sauce
1/3 cup basil pesto
1/4 cup milk
2 chicken breasts
1 cup broccoli cut up

Cook spaghetti according to package. Grill the chicken until cooked all the way through and slice/pull apart. Also, while the spaghetti is boiling, in a bowl combine the pasta sauce, pesto, and milk. When there is only a couple minutes left on the spaghetti add the broccoli.

Once the spaghetti and broccoli is done drain and add the sauce and chicken. Mix well until heated through. Serve with garlic bread.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

As I sit down this morning with my warm cup of coffee I realize, I’m in my happy place. You may have noticed every now and then I get down on myself, and depressed. Sometimes its a real fight with myself to make myself even feel like getting out of bed. But, over the past couple weeks I have been taking Cipralex, a new drug for depression.

I have noticed a huge difference in all my day-to-day things. Everything from the amount of energy I have in the mornings, to wanting to do things again, like scrapbooks and cooking! YAY! Even my BF has noticed. I let him go out to the casino with the guys last night! What is wrong with me I keep asking myself! Three months ago I never would have agreed to such a thing, since I absolutely hate gambling and see no point in wasting money that we work so hard to save up.

So as things are getting better for me and I can find my happy places easier and just feel at ease with life, I have decided I need to start-up my blogging again. After a couple of month break its time to come back to it. So, with that. Here is my newest recipe:

 

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts – cooked and cubed
1/4 cup ranch dressing
2 tbsp butter
1 cup hot sauce
1 prepared pizza crust
1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450F. Prebake the crust for just a few minutes.

In a medium bowl combine chicken, butter and hot sauce. Mix well. Spread the ranch dressing over the pizza crust. Top with chicken and spread the cheese overtop.

Bake in preheated oven until cheese is golden brown and bubbly. About 5-10 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before serving!

cajun chicken anyone?

I have leftovers…

I ended up being the only one home tonight, Dan talked Ryley into linesing the game. So he was off like 15 minutes before the game started. I don’t think its fait to Ryley, and we did talk about it, that he has finals and needs to study and is getting talked into reffing and linesing the hockey games. But I guess when Dan decides for you, you don’t really have a choice. Anyway, I made myself blackened chicken, salad, and rice.. yum!

Blackened Cajun Chicken

1/2 cup cajun seanoning
4 tbsp oil
4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts

Preheat indoor grill, and pour the seasoning into a deep dish.

Fry the chicken breasts in oil until browned, coat with cajun seasoning and place on the oiled grill for about 20 mins or until done.

Dan taught me how to make this chicken. We go to Earls’ alot in Saskatoon and I usually order their blackened cajun chicken. This comes very very close… Its kinda spicey so watch out!

Back to work yesterday was good. I had a couple people bug me about taking and EDO.. not impressed.. honestly my life is more important than my job.. I need to e-mail about another job opening here in town and maybe get on with them sooner than later!
