Chicken was on sale 2 weeks ago and I really stocked up. The last 2 boneless, skinless breast were haunting me. Paul requested Chicken Parm. I had never made it before, but this is what I came up with.... It got a rave review from Paul. This was so much food... so even though its only 2 breasts... it could have fed 4!
A fantastic summer side dish and very healthy also. Had a lot of zucchini and yellow squash in the garden one year, so we invented this.
I use the minced garlic in jar for this because it has a milder flavor and this only cooks for a minute or 2. I found that if you use fresh garlic... its REALLY overpowering
I just recently was given a crock pot. I love it! I made this for dinner last night and it was melt in your mouth good! I used just a 3 pound roast, I am sure any kind of roast will work fine. I also made real gravy with the juice. When I made this, I used vermouth because thats what I had, but red wine, beer or even white wine would work just as well.
What a great way to get a summer evening started. Let the marindae sit with the chicken overnight for best results. The orange juice and the beer make the chicken REALLY tender.
Its an easy thing to mix up in the morning for dinner that night!
These burritos were made with left over pork we had from a pig roast. The meat was roasted over an open fire at low heat for 10 hours, so it was smoky and fantastic, but you could use any kind of pulled pork. Check out the recipe for my own BBQ sauce, its a fantastic combo. I like to serve this with salsa, sour cream and sliced olives
