Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala doesn’t have to be a dish you only order at your favorite Italian restaurant. This recipe is super easy and it has all the flavors! You can be a praised chef in your own kitchen with this recipe…
1 Package of Chicken Cutlets
8 oz white mushrooms
1/2 Cup of Flour
1/3 Cup of Olive Oil
1 Clove of Garlic
1 tsp of tomato paste
2 oz of Pancetta (cut in thin pieces)
1 1/2 Cups of Marsala Wine
2 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tbs of Unsalted Butter
2 tbs Chopped Fresh Parsley (optional)
Salt & pepper chicken. Place flour in a dish and dredge each cutlet in flour. Place in a heated skillet over medium-high heat with the 1/3 olive oil and cook until golden brown on each side until no longer pink. Transfer cutlets onto a plate and set aside. Now cook pancetta in the same skillet until crisp, then place on a plate. Add mushrooms to the same skillet stirring occasionally until browned. Stir in garlic, tomato paste, and crisp pancetta cooking for another 3 minutes. Stir in Marsala bringing to a simmer, stirring until sauce thickens for about 5 to 10 minutes. Pull skillet from the heat and stir in butter and lemon juice. Add parsley and pour sauce over chicken. Wa-La…Chicken Marsala!

Hamburger Soup

Sometimes you just feel like a bowl of soup! Especially, when its chilly out. So, I made an easy hearty hamburger soup and allowed it to cook on low for 8 hours in my crock pot and it was mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good! The simple things in life are sometimes more pleasing then the extravagant. At least that’s how I felt while eating my bowl of soup. Nothing fancy here with this recipe but yummy veggies, extra lean beaf, and whole wheat elbow macaroni. 🙂
1 1/2 of Extra Lean Beef (97% lean and 4% fat is what I used)
1 Can of Diced Garlic Tomatoes (undrained)
1 Cup of Diced Potatoes
4 Stalks of Celery
1 Jalapeno Diced
1 Chopped Onion (I used sweet onion)
1 Can of Corn (drained)
1 Can of Green Beans (drained)
1 squash sliced
1/2 Cup of Shredded Carrots
1/2 Cup of Diced Mushrooms
1/4 Tsp of Pepper
1 Tsp of Garlic Powder
1 Tsp of Onion Powder
1 Tsp of Dried Basil
1 Tsp of Paprika
Beef Bouillon Cubes
Low Sodium Chicken Stock
1 Pack of Lipton Onion Soup
Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni
Brown your beef. In crock pot add 2 cups of water and 3 cups of chicken stock. Add packet of lipton onion soup and 4 beef bouillon cubes. Pour in tomatoes, green beans, and corn. Add the remaining veggies and spices (you can add more spice to liking). Allow to cook for the next 6 to 8 hours or you can cook on high for half the time. The last hour add your macaroni noodles and ENJOY!
