    Talking What's For Dinner?

    You don't have to include a recipe, unless you so desire.

    This is just an informal thread asking the question, what is for dinner?

    I'll start....

    I am making a cheezy bacon chicken dish that is really easy. And I will include the recipe for anyone who loves chicken, cheese, or bacon!

    BACON CHICKEN
    ~Serves 6~

    • 6 slices bacon
    • 1 Tbsp. butter
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/8 tsp. pepper
    • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar or colby cheese


    Cook bacon in 12" skillet until crisp, about 4-6 minutes.
    Crumble bacon and set aside.
    Pour bacon grease out of skillet, but don't wash or wipe it. Add butter and olive oil to skillet.
    Sauté chicken breasts in this mixture over medium heat, turning once, until chicken is almost cooked and just barely pink in center. The internal temperature should be 150 degrees F. This should take 8-10 minutes.
    Place chicken in ungreased 12x8" baking dish.
    Cook onion and garlic in drippings remaining in skillet.
    Cook until onion is softened, then stir in salt, pepper, and cooked bacon.
    Spoon over chicken breasts and sprinkle with cheese.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked to 160 degrees F and cheese is melted.


    Yummalicious!!

    Oh no, I don't have that kind of talent/patience, lol.

    I purchase the shrimp dumplings fresh, then steam them at home. Taste mighty fine, I must say!

    Tonight will be fish and chips and a lovely Tomato-Feta Salad. And hot tea.

    Spicy Mango Jalapeño Chicken Sausages sautéd in olive oil. I was given a pack of 5 sausages of these as a gift and was asked to give them a try.

    Since I'm not a spicy food enthusiast I will have a backup of my curried peas/cream of chicken concoction with some veggies: either fresh spinach or broccoli. All chased down with my filtered water/apple-cider vinegar/orange fiber mix.
