Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

So the other day I wrote about the delicious buttered parsley noodles. And while they were amazing the show stopper was definitely the chicken. The amount of flavour in this chicken dish was amazing. Just by tasting it you would think it would be a complex process to achieve the flavours, but I am here to tell you that’s not the case. You can have a gourmet meal on the dinner table and you won’t be slaving in the kitchen for hours to get it. In the cookbook See mentions that you’ll want to slurp up the sauce and she was right. Next time we might even serve the sauce with mashed potatoes so we don’t loose any of it. I’ve written about quite a few of the recipes I’ve made from The Pioneer Woman’s cookbooks and what I really like is with a quick google search you can find similar or even the exact recipe from the book. So here’s a link if you want to give this chicken a try. And here’s how we plated ours up ๐Ÿ™‚

100’s of Meatballs!

With another year of homeschooling just beginning I want to start stocking the freezer with some meals or meal components for those days that just seem to get away from us. I was browsing thru my Pioneer cookbooks once again and I discovered the recipe to make freezer meatballs. Now before you say but couldn’t you just buy remade frozen ones and save the time? Well of course I could but would the quality and the taste be the same absolutely not. And on top of giving us the recipe to make these meatballs the next several pages in the cookbook give you meal options of what to make with your homemade frozen meatballs which I think is genius.

This is the third or fourth time I’ve referenced See Drummonds Pioneer Woman cookbooks and you will probably get sick of me singing praises to them. But there is seriously nothing in the cookbook that I’ve made that my family and I haven’t loved. In fact I love them all so much I will link all of her cookbooks right here for you. Borrow them from your local library, order them online, ask a friend if they have a copy or even search her blog. Your family will thank you later ๐Ÿ™‚

This was one of several trays I baked, cooled, frozen on a the cookie sheet then packaged into packs of 25 meatballs.

Ginger Steak Salad

Today is another meal I tested out from my Pioneer Woman Cookbook. And this meal did not disappoint. I would serve this to guests, for a dinner party, for an at home date night or just for a regular night of the week when you wanted to eat and amazing meal. The best part about this meal is it’s not complicated but definitely tastes like something that should be serve an upscale restaurant. The ginger, the white wine vinegar, the brown sugar, the garlic in the marinate make this steak so flavourful and tender. Then you throw in the mixed greens with the green onions and cherry tomatoes it’s a winning combo for sure.

Now don’t you worry if you don’t have the cookbook I was luckily able to find a link to a very similar recipe, but I highly recommend you do purchase the cookbooks.

So what are you waiting for run to your kitchen and make this tonight ๐Ÿ™‚

Chicken Satay

I absolutely love the beauty of where I live, however having moved from British Columbia to this small town I am missing food diversity. So what’s a girl to do? Source and find recipes for her favourite take out of course. Recently I was watching and episode of Pioneer Woman and I got so excited because she was making Chicken Satay. I am a huge fan of Red Drummond and I actually own all her cookbooks. Her recipes are flavourful and always have great taste. I set out to make this recipe the day after I saw it air. I was so excited to make this meal at home because I haven’t found a Thai restaurant that was close to our house. The closest one I found is about an hour and fifteen minutes which is a huge time commitment to get take out lol. The only things I changed from the original recipe is I couldn’t find chicken tenders so I bought chicken breast and sliced them instead and I baked them in the oven since it was raining the day I made them. Also there was extra peanut sauce so I made some rice noodles with peanut sauce to not waste any of it. I am sure that I’ll be testing more of the recipes in The Pioneer Woman cookbooks. I highly recommend you get any of her books if you can, you won’t be disappointed. Now I was so excited to try this meal I didn’t care much about my plating presentation so ignore that and trust that the flavours are all there.
