Crispy Chicken Burger with Honey Mustard Coleslaw (kitchensanctuary)

Chicken Marinade

3 large or 4 small chicken breasts, sliced into long, thick strips
1 c buttermilk
1/2 t salt
1/4 t white pepper
1/4 t garlic salt

Place the chicken in a bowl. Add buttermilk, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Mix together, cover and place in the fridge to marinade for at least 1 hour (up to over night.)

Crispy Chicken Coating

1 1/2 c flour
1 t salt
1 t ground black pepper
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t celery salt
1 t dried thyme
1 t paprika
1 t baking powder
1 t chilli flakes

Preheat the oven to a low heat (to keep cooked chicken warm). Heat a large pan of vegetable oil (or preheat your deep fat fryer) until hot (you can test by dropping a small cube of bread in there, if it rises immediately to the top and starts to bubble rapidly, it’s hot enough). You’ll need at least 4 c of oil. Mix together the crispy coating ingredients in a small bowl. Take the chicken out of the fridge. Lift a piece from the buttermilk and allow the excess to drip off. Dredge the chicken in the crispy coating mix – ensuring it’s fully covered. Place on a tray and repeat until all of the chicken is coated. Once the oil is hot enough, add in 5 or 6 of the chicken tenders. You can add more or less depending on the size of your pan, just be sure not to overcrowd the chicken. Cook for 3 – 5 min until golden brown and cooked in the middle. You can check this by cutting open a piece of chicken, if it’s no longer pink in the middle, it’s cooked. Place on a tray in the oven to keep warm whilst you cook the rest of the chicken.

Honey Mustard Coleslaw

1/3 white cabbage
1 medium carrot, peeled
4 T mayonnaise
1 T Dijon mustard
1 t honey
2 t lemon juice
pinch of black pepper

Burger

4 slices gouda cheese (can use ready-sliced kind), or slice it yourself
4 brioche buns, toasted
8 pieces Romaine lettuce
1 – 2 jalapenos, sliced
1/2 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

Now it’s time to assemble. First, arrange the chicken tenders into four piles and place the gouda on top. Grill or place into a hot oven for a couple of min until just melted. Place the bottom of the brioche buns on four plates. Top with the lettuce leaves, followed by the cheesy chicken pieces. Spoon on the coleslaw, then sprinkle on the red onion slices and jalapeno slices. Place tops of the buns on top and serve.

Homemade Pizza (gwensnest)

Dough

Easy E Bread

Stir with a wooden spoon until the dough is evenly wet with no dry spots. Cover your container and allow to rise on the counter for 2 hours. The dough should double (if using whole wheat) or almost triple in size (white flour) and begin to collapse on itself and flatten on top. You can allow it to rise longer and it won’t hurt anything. Dough keeps for up to 2 weeks and yields 2 large pizza crusts.

Toppings

1/2 t coarse kosher salt for the crust
Greek seasoning blend sprinkled for the crust
2 t Parmesan cheese
1/2 c tomato or pizza sauce of your choice
1 1/2 c mozzarella cheese (good pizza cheese)
4 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
or any other toppings of your choice! (fat free to keep this in E territory)

Preheat oven to 450º F with a pizza stone on the middle rack. While oven is heating, lay out a square of parchment paper and smush out half of the batch of bread dough into a large circle, leaving a thicker rim for the crust. Sometimes, the dough is very wet and other times it’s very elastic and tough, but it always turns out tasting great…just manhandle it however you need to. Sprinkle on the crust area with Greek seasoning (or your favorite blend). Sprinkle your crust with a few pinches of kosher (this step is important!) or coarse ground salt and add some seasonings of your choice and Parmesan cheese shreds. Slide the paper and the dough onto the pizza stone, and bake for 10 min. You can make a salad or gather and prep toppings at this time. Remove crust and spread sauce. Add any “under cheese” toppings, like fresh garlic or mushrooms, etc Add cheese in one big mound in the center, and then just spread it to the edges. Top as desired. Return the whole deal to the oven for another 10 min until it’s browned and bubbly. Allow to cool slightly, and cut into 16 pieces.

Calzone in a Mug (biggerbolderbaking)

8 T flour
1/4 t baking powder
1/8 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
6 T milk
2 T olive oil
3 – 4 T tomato sauce
4 – 5 T finely grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 t dry Italian seasoning
parsley for garnish (opt)

In a microwave safe mug combine your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Once dry ingredients are combined add in the milk and oil and mix thoroughly until you have a smooth batter (if there are a few lumps, not to worry). In the center of the batter drop a spoonful of your tomato sauce, cheese, Italian seasonings and pepperoni. Pull the batter over the center to hide the calzone filling underneath the batter. Microwave for 1 min and 50 seconds – 2 min and 10 seconds or until the top of the calzone is risen and firm to the touch (timing is based on a 1200 Watt microwave and a 1 c mug so your timing might vary.) Garnish with parsley and tomato sauce if you’d like. Enjoy straight away! Note: Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.

Buttery Cinnamon Sugar Spread

1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c old fashioned oats

Egg, Ham and Cheese Crepe Pockets (natashaskitchen)

Crepes

1/2 c warm water
1 c milk, any kind
4 large eggs
4 T unsalted butter, melted & more to sauté.
1 c flour (can sub 1/2 c whole wheat flour and 1/2 c all-purpose)
1 t sugar
pinch of salt

Filling

1 – 2 T dijon mustard (opt)
1/3 lb good quality deli ham, cut into strips
10 large eggs scrambled with 4 T heavy cream or milk
8 oz medium cheddar cheese, shredded

In the bowl of a blender, combine all ingredients in the order listed. Blend until smooth about 1 min. Scrape down sides with a spatula. Over medium/low heat, melt 1 t butter in a good non-stick skillet Add batter and quickly swirl to cover the bottom (about 3 – 4 T for a medium pan or 5 – 6 T for a large pan). Fill in any gaps with more batter as needed. Saute until golden on each side (about 1 min per side) then place on a cutting board to cool. Once crepes are at room temp, they can be stacked. Melt 1/2 T butter in a large non-stick pan and saute your scrambled eggs. Cook until fluffy but still somewhat moist. Set aside to cool. Brush one side of a crepe lightly with dijon mustard, place a generous pinch of shredded cheese in the center then top with ham, eggs and more cheese. Fold the top over and tuck it under the egg slightly. Fold in the sides and roll to close. Repeat with remaining crepes. To serve right away, saute in butter 3 min per side over med/low heat until golden brown on both sides and warmed through. Serve plain or with diced tomatoes, avocado and hot sauce. Freezing and Thawing Instructions: To freeze, wrap each pocket in parchment paper then place in a freezer safe bag. Before serving, thaw in the fridge or microwave in a single layer on high 1 – 2 min for 2 – 4 pockets just until thawed, then saute in butter over med/low heat 3 min per side. Note: The first crepe always turns out ugly so don’t panic and consider this your taste test! Its ok to freeze without the parchment paper but you have to keep them in a single row, do not stack without parchment paper. Makes 10 – 12 Breakfast Crepe Pockets.

Perogy Pizza (foodfunandhappiness)

Pizza

5 potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
1 pizza crust, homemade or store bought
1 1/2 c Mozzarella cheese,grated
1 c medium Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 t Cayenne pepper
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 t onion powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 t vegetable oil
8 bacon slices, cooked and cut into pieces
6 T sour cream, divided
1 jalapeno, finely diced, no seeds (opt)

Prepare pizza dough according to instructions or follow your favorite homemade recipe. Pre cook sliced potatoes with spices in a large covered skillet with 2 c water. Cook on medium-high heat until potatoes are tender. Remove lid and simmer until liquid is no longer present. Add oil; toss potatoes so they don’t stick to skillet. Watch carefully, as the potatoes can burn easily. Place cooked potatoes into a bowl and set aside. In a bowl, mix sour cream and diced jalapeno together. This is an optional step since the cayenne pepper should give this pizza recipe the spiciness already. The diced jalapeno gives it a little bit more kick. Assemble the pizza for baking. First, spread 3 T sour cream onto the pizza crust. Then cover with sliced spicy potatoes. Spread the last 3 T sour cream on top of potatoes. Spread grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese evenly. Do the same with crumbled bacon bits. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 20 – 25 min. Before cutting, allow the pizza to sit for about 5 – 10 min. Serve each slice of pizza with a dollop of sour cream and some green onions.

Garnish

3 green onions, chopped
dollop of sour cream for each piece
