Skillet Chicken Parmesan #SundaySupper

Reclaim Sunday Supper! Take the Sunday Supper pledge and make dinnertime a priority in your life. With all the activities and racing around that we all do, it is so hard to actually sit down to enjoy dinner with our families every single night- actually its pretty much impossible sometimes!

But Sunday nights or any ONE night a week, I try to make a family meal, that everyone enjoys, so we can slow down a bit and maybe share some time together at the table to reconnect and maybe, just maybe create some memories over a shared meal.

I like this Skillet Chicken Parmesan, because it tastes a lot like the one that takes hours to make in the oven, but it’s fast, uses one skillet, and is less caloric than the heavier baked chicken parmesan that you have in a restaurant. I also love this because I serve it with pasta for the kiddos and with some sauteed kale for my husband and I who try not to indulge in the pasta too much- we all win here! Serve with some crusty garlic bread for the kids and you are set! Enjoy each other and share some food!

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Ingredients:

1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
4 split and boned chicken breasts (or two whole boneless breasts)
3 8-ounce cans tomato sauce (no sugar, no salt)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
extra salt and pepper for seasoning the chicken

In a small bowl, combine the basil, oregano, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. Mix. Set aside.

Using a serrated or sharp bladed knife slice the chicken in half like this:

I know! Raw chicken pic- not appealing, but I want to show you how to slice in half!

You should have 8 slices total. Season with the extra salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil. Saute three chicken pieces at a time, to avoid overcrowding in the pan, about 5 minutes each side, until cooked all the way through. Remove and continue until all the chicken is cooked.

Add the chicken back to the pan, overlapping the pieces. Pour the sauce over the top and sprinkle the spices over it all. Simmer covered for 5 minutes.  Flip the chicken pieces over and sprinkle the cheese all over the top, cover and continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Garnish with some chopped parsley and serve!

This serves 4 servings, of 2 half-cut breasts each person or 8 servings of 1-half cut breast. This recipe is easily doubled (or cut in half) and will serve my family of 6 (2 adults and 4 smaller eaters)!

Cranberry Sauce

T.R.’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

The Sunday Supper bloggers are honoring  T.R. Crumbley, a fellow blogger and friend to many, who passed away this summer. We are making some of T.R.’s recipes or creating a gluten-free recipe of our own as T.R. was a gluten-free recipe creator.

While T.R.’s site is not up anymore, his recipes are archived in the WayBack Machine- something Sue Lau, of Palatable Pastime, reminded me of- she thinks just like a librarian! As it’s name implies, the WayBack Machine has a record of old and forgotten websites. As a librarian, I have used it a ton, to find old sites that just disappear. Sue, reminded us of the Wayback as a place to find T.R.’s recipes and I am so glad that I can honor him in this way and make a recipe directly from his own recipe collection. This is an exact copy by T.R.:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 27, 2010, UPDATED ON MAY 7, 2016 BY T.R. CRUMBLEY

Not for the diabetic

You’ll need:
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup Orange Juice
– 16 oz organic cranberries
– 1/4 cup dry white wine
– whisk
– pot with lid
– potato masher

Directions:
– Whisk together sugar and oj and bring to a boil on medium.
– Add cranberries and let boil until cranberries have popped
– Mash cranberries and add wine.
– Keep stirring for about 5, let stand to thicken and serve.

This is exactly how I did it, except I used non-organic cranberries. Just perfect. I love cranberry sauce – especially after Thanksgiving on my favorite sandwich, loaded with turkey and stuffing, and this yummy sauce- so good! This sauce is a 4-ingredient, 10 minute wonder…Thanks T.R.~

Here it is in my own words, and printable for you- worth making for sure!

Cranberry Sauce

“Knowing” someone only virtually, is a strange thing. I never got to meet T.R. face to face- but I chatted with him regularly…on Twitter in our Sunday Supper chats. Appropriately, this week is the last twiiter-chat for SundaySupper bloggers as we will no longer be chatting there on Sunday nights. The sun-downing of that social interaction, will hopefully bring new things to light, and hopefully T.R. would be honored by this. I am glad to have had the opportunity to “know” you a bit, T.R. Rest in peace~ For more recipes that honor T.R. and his gluten-free recipe legacy, check out the rest of the SundaySupper bloggers:

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites #SundaySupper

Need a 10 minute dish to bring to your Halloween party using just 4 ingredients? This little “recipe”  for Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites is your new fun dessert to bring, that both kids and adults will devour!

I know this of course, since it is VERY difficult to get these out the door without popping at least a couple in my mouth- they are finger food!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

There really is no “recipe” for this- it’s just buying some things at the store and making this in about 5 minutes- the hardest part is unwrapping the  chocolates!


Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

Ingredients:

One bag of square shaped (waffled) pretzels
1 large bag of chocolate covered caramel candy (I used Hershey Rolo®s)
1 small bag of candy corn
coarse salt for sprinkling

Here’s what to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 350*.
  • Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment.
  • Place pretzels in a single layer all over the pan.
  • Place an unwrapped Rolo in the center of each pretzel.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

  • Bake for 5 minutes- you want them soft, not melted!
  • Take the pan out of the oven and quickly press one candy-corn in the center of each Rolo, pressing down to squish it a bit.
  • Sprinkle the whole pan with coarse salt.
  • Set up in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
  • Serve!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

I love these little bites because they are SO easy to make- Of course if it is not Halloween, you can press a little M&M on top instead of a candy corn, in the color the holiday represents: blue and white for Hannukah, red and green for Christmas, pink or red for Valentines….so easy.
