Weekly Recipes Worth Sharing 4/20-4/27
This list is kinda short again this week because I have been so busy plus I forget to take pictures of dinner two nights in a row because the kids were going bananas, but here are the few I have to share!
Smoked Apple Chicken Patties on top of Sweet Potato Cakes
This is one of those recipes that tastes gourmet but is really super simple. Here are the ingredients for the chicken patty/”burger”.
– 1 lb ground chicken
-1 apple peeled and diced
-1 bunch of spinach, chopped
-Grill Mates Apple Wood Rub (to your liking)
Combine all of the ingredients and then form into patties and grill. Yup, that simple.
I can’t take credit for the sweet potato cake/bun and mine was a little underdone because I was starving and didn’t have the patience to wait until it was crispy. The recipe came from Inspiralized.com and here is the link to it. The combo of flavors from the smoked apple chicken and the sweet potato was amazing. Definitely one of those recipes I am going to add to my go-to dinner list!
Tarragon-Mustard Baked Chicken
-1 1/2 to 2 lbs of chicken tender cuts
-1 bunch of carrots (or like 5 medium size carrots) sliced into sticks
– 1 large onion, sliced
– 3 or 4 russet potatoes (depending on size and quantity you want in your dish)
– enough dashes of tarragon to equally cover all tenders
-generous dashes of mustard powder to equally cover all tenders
-salt and pepper
-1/2 cup of water or enough to just cover the bottom of the baking dish to prevent burning
Once prepared and assembled, bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, chicken is done when juices run clear. The bake time really depends on your oven so keep checking to make sure chicken isn’t overdone. This came out really amazing and moist when I made it and had a bit of a kick to it because of the mustard powder. It didn’t take too long to prepare and everyone loved it including my children!
