So this week I thought I’d post some step-by-step pictures of my cooking process. If this post gets more hits than the other ones I’ll start doing this more often! Since I’m still trying to gain back the weight I lost from Miami I am still eating as many carbs as I want. Yay! Who doesn’t love carbs?! Especially POTATOES! On the menu this week…
Mustard Roasted Potatoes
Inspiration from Bean Town Baker, but I pretty much changed everything around because I didn’t have the ingredients from that recipe.
• 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes
• 1 sweet onion
• 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
• 3 table spoons olive oil
• 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 1 teaspoon garlic salt
• 1 gallon Ziploc bag
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Peel onion and slice.
2. Place potatoes and onion into Ziploc bag. Add dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper. Seal and toss the bag around to coat the potatoes and onion evenly.
3. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread potatoes and onion onto pan.
4. Bake for 1 hour; until potatoes are lightly browned on the outside and tender on the inside. Toss the potatoes occasionally to prevent sticking and for even browning.
I should’ve added more onion, the onion is my favorite part!!!!
And for the protein this week… I’m back to my chicken ways.
Citrus Baked Chicken
• Chicken tenders
• 2 teaspoons Caldo de Pollo seasoning
• 2 teaspoons Grill Creations Citrus Grill seasoning
• 1 teaspoon Ground black pepper (not pictured)
• 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil (not pictured)
• Cooking spray (not pictured)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash chicken tenders.
2. Toss tenders with Caldo de Pollo, Citrus Grill, and pepper. Grease baking dish with cooking spray. Place in baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil to keep them moist.
3. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes.
I love baking chicken because it comes out perfectly cooked with very little effort. Ovens do use a lot of energy though. You just can’t ever win in life.
Anddd there you have it. Some of my meals for the week. The potato recipe actually yields more potatoes than pictured, but I ate some before I put it in the tupperware because I was very hungry.
The florescent lighting in my kitchen is really starting to annoy me because all these pictures turn out a lot uglier than they actually are. Grrr.
