Light Recipes

This is a fun recipe we made a while back that is a great way to use leftover chicken! We love making this for a quick lunch, appetizer or just as a snack!

 

BBQ Chicken Potato Bake recipe

You will need

  • 5-7 medium potatoes washed and sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (can substitute salsa or alfredo if you don’t like BBQ)
  • 2-3  cups cooked chicken diced
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • dash of oil to coat the potatoes so they don’t stick while cooking
  • Salt and pepper
Bake Time 30-50 minutes depending on oven and thickness of your potatoes

Wash you potatoes and slice in  thin layers about 1/8- 1/4 of an inch. Thinner you cut them the quicker they will cook.  Put a thin layer of olive oil on a cookie sheet and toss potato slices in it so they get an nice even coating.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or till they are fork tender.

Take out of the oven and top with cooked chicken, BBQ sauce, cheese and green onions.

Then put BACK IN THE OVEN at 350 degrees just till cheese it melted (normally about 5 minutes)

My kids love this!  If your little ones do not like BBQ sauce you can use salsa or alfredo sauce instead…yummy!

BLTA Waffle Sandwich

Sliced turkey breast, maple smoked bacon, avocado slices, red leaf lettuce and tomato pressed between two Eggo waffles. Oh boy, was this delicious. Yummy and messy, now that’s my kind of sandwich! Pass the napkins please. I love when you bite into a sandwich and get a wide variety of flavors happening all at once. This hit the spot!

Ingredients

  • 2 Eggo waffles – home style
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese
  • red leaf lettuce
  • tomato slices
  • 3 slices bacon, crisp
  • mayonnaise

Directions

  1. In a medium skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Place bacon on paper towels to help soak up the remainder grease. Set bacon aside.
  2. Set oven to broil. Meanwhile, toast waffles per packaged directions.
  3. Lay cheese slice on top of one of the toasted Eggo waffles. Place on a small sheet of foil. Stick under the broiler until cheese melts.
  4. Top melted cheese waffle with lettuce, tomato, bacon slices, sliced turkey and avocado slices. Spread mayo on the inside of the top part of waffle; top sandwich. Cut in half. Serve.

Grape Salsa recipe

  • 2 cups seedless grapes , coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup white onion , chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoon jalapeno (seeds taken out), diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
Add all ingredients into a bowl, mix well.  Cover and let the flavors blend at least an hour before severing.  Pour off extra liquid before serving.  Eat with corn chips, pita chips or wheat thins.

Almond grape chicken salad recipeThis is one of my families favorites.   I made it last night for dinner with the grapes I got for only $1.29 per lb at Albertsons.  I also made some Grape Salsa.

Almond Chicken Salad with Grapes Recipe

  • 1 pound Diced Cooked Chicken Breast
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1 cup red or green grapes halved
  • 3 stalks of celery diced small
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Combine, salt and pepper to taste, best if it has a few hours to chill, for the flavors to blend.  Keep in refrigerator and serve on a roll, tortilla wrap, bagel…. or just plain bread.  Either way it is fabulous. This my personal favorite, hope you enjoy it too.

You can cook the chicken breast any way you want.  But I prefer to roast it in the oven or do a quick boil…. but if I boil it I always add a little onion, celery, and garlic to the water.  Gives it a much better flavor.

Once the chicken is cooked thru, cooking time will vary on size of breast. I normally cook them 25-35 minutes.  Take them out, and let them rest on a cutting board to cool.

Once they have cooled down some (normally 10 minutes) chop them into small bite sized pieces. Put them into the refrigerator to cool even more.

Chop your veggies, add all the ingredients in a bowl.

Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
