I started by cooking strips of chicken breast on the stove with EVOO. In a separate pan, I put minced garlic, EVOO, diced zucchini squash, tomatoes, fresh tomatillo salsa, and fresh salsa. Then I cooled and shredded chicken and added both this and stove ingredients to the glass pie dish with shredded cheese! Baked at 375 for about 20-30 and enjoyed. Healthy, fresh, and delicious!
Begin by baking sweet potatoes, I made a big batch of 8 potatoes and baked at 400 until they were very soft. Remove the skins (not necessary but a safe bet in a larger crowd) and combine with butter salt and milk in a mixing bowl. Taste as you go to find the perfect flavor! Can be served hot or prepared the night before and cold. The chicken salad is a combination of chicken (boiled or rotisserie), cilantro, mashed avocado, walnuts, halved grapes, S&P, olive oil
One of my challenges is to make meals my boyfriend will enjoy, he’s got a sweet tooth and was brought up with southern cooking. He liked this one:
Oven to 375, half an acorn squash (remove seeds) and bake until tender (my small squash took 40 min)
While baking brown 1/2 lb of ground beef and onion. Transfer this to bowl and add two strips of cooked chopped bacon, dried cherries, and eventually squash insides. Remove squash from oven and scoop insides, leaving 1/4 inch of shell. Put insides back in shell, add some butter and bake another 15.
BLT. Bacon Lettuce Tomato. We used to eat these on Sunday growing up. I found an awesome healthy mayo, used Boars head thick bacon, ripe tomatoes, Mashable avocado and romaine lettuce. And for bread my go-to Ezekiel sprouted toast
