Friday's Fare

Posted Friday, September 17, 2010 by Kally83
Well we've made it to Friday! We're off to my aunt's wedding reception out of town this weekend so I'll be posting next on Sunday rather than Saturday.
Today is produce delivery day! Every other Friday we receive a bin full of (mostly) local, organic produce. There's nothing more wonderful than having a fridge full of fresh, organic fruits and veggies!! Now if I could just find somewhere to buy organic meat that doesn't cost a small fortune, we'd be set

Speaking of fresh produce, I have 2 recipes today although I usually serve them both as an entree with some mashed potatoes or rice.
I got these recipes from Kraft. It’s become something of a family favourite. Super easy and super yummy!

Crispy Salsa Chicken

4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pouch chicken coating mix (sometimes known as Shake’n Bake)
½ cup salsa
½ cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat chicken with coating mix as directed on package. Place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Top each chicken breast with 2 tbsp salsa. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Yields: 4 servings

Fresh Peppers and Green Beans

2 onions, cut in thin slices
½ cup dressing, divided (anything oil-based will do)
1 lb green beans, trimmed
¼ cup water
1 red pepper, cut in thin slices

Cook onions in ¼ cup dressing in large skillet on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Add beans and water, stir. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Stir in peppers; cook covered for 5-8 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender. Remove from heat and stir in remaining dressing.

TGIF everyone!
