Ultimate Chicken Fingers

I got this recipe off of the Bisquick box and it is so good. The kids eat them faster than they eat chicken from Chick-Fil-A. They don't even need any dipping sauce they are so full of flavor.

3 boneless skinless chicken beasts, cut crosswise into 1/2 inch strips
2/3 cup Original Bisquick mix or Heart Smart Bisquick
1/2 cup grated parmesean cheese
1/2tsp salt or garlic salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted

HEAT oven to 450 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with foil; spray with w/ cooking spray. In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix Bisquick mix, cheese, salt, and paprika.

DIP half of the chicken strips into egg; place in bag. Seal bag; shake to coat. Place chicken on cookie sheet. Repeat to use up remaining chicken. Drizzle butter over chicken.

BAKE 12-14 min, turning halfway through bake time with pancake turner, until no longer pink in center.

4 servings.

Apple Pork Chops with Sauerkraut - Crockpot

This is a great recipe to make in the fall and winter. Makes your house smell wonderful and it's a one hit wonder (no need to make sides or veggies). The whole family loves it. The pork chops fall apart with a fork and everything else goes together and tastes incredible! The apples & sweet pots will lose their shape so it may not be the prettiest dish to serve but the flavor makes up for it.


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin wedges (enough to cover the bottom of your crock)
1/2 small-medium yellow onion, finely chopped (you can use more if you like but my family isn't big on onions)
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced
2 Tbsp. light brown sugar (more or less depending how sweet you like things)
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon (more or less depending how sweet you like things)
1 TBS poultry seasoning
1 TBS salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon sugar
6 boneless 1" thick pork chops
15-oz. can sauerkraut, rinsed and drained

Place the sweet potatoes and finely chopped onion in bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle some brown sugar, ground cinnamon and a pinch of salt over them. Cover with apple slices. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, ground cinnamon, cinnamon sugar, & the salt and pepper and sprinkle generously over the apples.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle poultry seasoning over both sides of the pork chops. Cook them for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned slightly.

Place the chops over the apples. Top with the drained sauerkraut. Cover crockpot and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours or until pork chops are tender. Enjoy!

Chicken Fried Rice

This recipe comes from Weight Watchers - find it  here


2 spray(s) cooking spray
4 large egg white(s)
1/2 cup(s) scallion(s), chopped, green and white parts
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
12 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup(s) carrot(s), diced
2 cup(s) cooked brown rice, regular or instant, kept hot
1/2 cup(s) frozen green peas, thawed
3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce


Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Add egg whites and cook, until scrambled, stirring frequently, about 3 to 5 minutes; remove from pan and set aside.

Offheat, recoat skillet with cooking spray and place back over medium-high heat. Add scallions and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add chicken and carrots; sauté until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Beef Stroganoff

This is Holly's Dad's recipe. Super yummy and easy :)
1 lb of beef cubed (use as much of whatever beef you want, it won't really change it much)
1 c. Sour Cream
2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 cup of water (but beef broth is way better)
 2 tsp Beef Bouillon
2 Tbsp Worchestershire
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 Tbsp Butter
1 1/2 cup Sliced Mushrooms (again, use as much as you'd like. Baby Bella's have the best flavor for a small mushroom, and a variety only makes it better!)
1/2 c. Chopped Onion
1 Clove of Garlic
4 c. Egg Noodles

Mix sour cream, flour, pepper, and worchestershire. Stir in water (beef broth) and bouillon; set aside.

Melt butter on high heat. Add beef, onion, mushrooms and garlic. Cook and stir until cooked through (or until you consider it done. I like to keep mine on the medium well side).

Add sour cream mixture. Cook until bubbly.

Serve over hot noodles.
