So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

Okay. I didn't forget to put up today's recipe. I just procrastinated.

Which is totally different.

I found this recipe either in a magazine insert or on the back of a can. This is not one of those recipes that will make you jump up and down and slap your mama. But it is good and its different from the everyday thing. It's basically another way to cook chicken. Kind of like this one. And this one. And this one. And maybe even this one. Although I just realized I haven't given you our favorite way to eat chicken and I was sure I did already. Hmmm.

Anyway, you can use chicken pieces or chicken breasts depending on your preferences. It might be a pretty good meal to add a noodle dish to as well -- kind of do an Italian thing. It's pretty easy to make and my super picky children have always enjoyed it. If you use chicken pieces (at 59 cents a pound) or chicken breasts on sale, its fairly inexpensive as well.

Here's a tip I learned from Tightwad Gazette. Keep a gallon zip bag in your freezer and throw the heels from loaves of bread into it. When you need bread crumbs, just twirl a few of them in your food processor to get the amount you need. I keep mine in the door of the freezer because when Hubby especially, Chick or Dude go looking in there, it's like helter skelter. I'd never find them again if it wasn't in the door. They pretty much ignore the door.

So try it out. And let me know how you like it.

Parmesan Chicken

chicken pieces or breasts
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray. Combine cheese, bread crumbs, and spices. Dip chicken in butter or margarine. Coat with bread crumb mixture. Place in prepared pan. Bake 20 -30 minutes or until done.

ya know, it's funny you posted this. I made a version of this a week or more ago. My kids loved it. My version was a little different but super yummy. My kids are not into red sauce - so making chicken parm without it was awesome!

That sounds good and easy. We'll have to try it.
