Crispy oven fried chicken without the mess! This is a perfect week night meal because not only is it easy to prepare, it tastes great too. Whip up some mashed potatoes and you've got a real comfort meal!
I'm posting this as a reply to someone who was looking for tender pork chops without using a crock pot. I've had this recipe for so long, probably even before there WERE crock pots! (BTW - this recipe can also be made in a crock pot.)
My family loves these pork butt steaks. I got this recipe from the butcher at Wegman's when they were out of the prepared pork butt steaks. These can be done on the grill but baked in the oven is best.
When I was doing Weight Watchers and the boys were home, I got really tired of fixing 3 sets of meals each night. When I came upon this recipe - I just didn't tell them this was WW and to this day they still don't know. When the boys come home now - this is one dish they will request. Super fast & easy to fix on work nights.
4 oz. = 4 WW points (without rice)
*Note - in response to some reviews that experience the sauce being too runny or thin...extend the reduction time (after removing lid). It may take another 5-10 minutes to thicken and have the consistency you desire.
A beginner-easy recipe that tastes harder to make than it is. This is one of my fallback, "I don't know what to make for dinner tonight," standards and the family never gets tire of it. The meat just falls off the bones! Its also a flavorful way to prepare chicken for use in the hundreds of recipes that call for pre-cooked chicken. With a family of 6 including low-carbers and hungry teens I usually double it in my 6qt oval but I wrote it the way I learned it 20 years ago.
When I got out of college I bussed tables at a wonderful, little restaurant. "Diet Chicken" wasn't on the menu, but customers knew to ask when they wanted it. The olive oil in the dressing keeps these simple, grilled chicken breasts moist. Its absurdly simple and completely delicious. Eat as is or cut in strips to top a salad or fill a wrap.
When I was first married we used to go to a Chinese restaurant that had the tastiest chicken -- spoiled by a greasy breading. After some trial and error I duplicated the flavor in this easy, economical dish. The long cooking that would dry out white meat gets the grease out of this dark meat and gives the skin a delicious crunch.
It's quick to make, converts to any quantity, and is a great favorite with kids and adults both. It also holds well and the leftovers are good cold.
Note: I've noticed in the last couple years that if you're not VERY CAREFUL about reading the fine print you'll end up with chicken pieces that have been "enhanced" by injecting it with some kind of "flavoring solution." Not only does this injected chicken make my DH ill from a reaction to the "flavoring solution," but it also seems to make it impossible for the chicken to pick up the flavorings you add. No matter what I do to it, "enhanced" chicken always tastes the same. So beware what you're buying. :)
I had a busy day and came up with this easy recipe for soft tacos. It's good, fast and inexpensive. I usually make two at a time but if you have a tortilla warmer, that will make it easier for everyone to eat at the same time.
