Wife Wanted Chicken Again…Weird (or Roast Chicken with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon)

January 22, 2013

So my wife loved the chicken I made last week except instead of cabbage I made it with brussel sprouts, bacon and onions tonight.  She’s sick so I made sure to include some broccoli too. 🙂  It was pretty good I have to say. so same recipe with the above changes and all you go. I’m also now all out of The Olive Scene Olive Oil and we’re in the middle of another snowstorm, oh well, its totally worth it. Pic below, enjoy.

Roasted Turkey Tenderloins w/ Brussel Sprouts AND Bacon!

January 16, 2013

Okay got a little crazy today. This recipe was inspired by my love of turkey, brussel sprouts and, well yeah, bacon. Away we go:

 

Take a turkey tenderloin (usually split into two already and usually about one and a half pounds and split the two pieces  down the middle and put them to the side. Cut some brussel sprouts in half and layer them in the bottom of a roasting pan then pour about a 1/4 cup of chicken stock over them, salt and pepper them then put the turkey tenderloins over them. Spritz everything with (I use The Olive Scene) Butter (not really butter) olive oil, garlic infused olive oil and salt/pepper. I then stuffed with them some gorgonzola  cheese (yeah I’m not perfectly paleo yet, I still have the occasional cheese so sue me :-)), toss some bacon over the brussel sprouts and turkey, cover and bake on 400 for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for about another 10/15 minutes, let it all rest for about 10 minutes, serve and enjoy.

Roasted Chicken with Cabbage (and Bacon!)

January 14, 2013

Tonight I decided to roast some chicken, well really it was preordained because I’ve been craving it and Boston Market where I would normally get “fast” chicken from now scares me. Side Note: My wife had some forgotten Boston Market in the fridge for like two weeks (yeah I know) and instead of normal food ickiness and stink there was nothing, the food hadn’t changed in two weeks, probably why I didn’t notice it in the back of the fridge. This terrified me and I haven’t had Boston Market since. Anyway back to my chicken now:

Take some cabbage and line a roasting pan with it. Next Pour about 1/2 cup of chicken stock over the cabbage and then break up some bacon over the cabbage, then take your hands and mix it all up. Pour some olive oil generously (but not too generously) over the cabbage and bacon mix.

Remove the innards of your chicken if it came that way (organic, clean, etc chicken is the way to go, we really like Bell & Evans) and wash the bird inside and out, pat dry with a paper towel. Don’t skip that last step or you’ll be sad. Put the bird over the cabbage and bacon coat with olive oil, sprinkle some thyme with salt & pepper over it and place two strips of bacon inside, YES INSIDE the birdie. Cover the roasting pan and bake 425 for an hour. After that, uncover the roasting pan and bake for another 15 minutes or so (juices run clear, proper temperature and all of that) to crisp up the chicken. Take it out, let it rest about ten minutes and enjoy. My wife claimed this was the best chicken and best cabbage I’ve ever made. The bacon just really kicks up the flavor of both the bird and the cabbage. Try it, you’ll like it, unless you hate bacon in which case you are probably a terrorist and should be arrested. 🙂 Pics below, enjoy!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Parmesan

September 14, 2012

This one was fantastic, to me anyway. Hope you enjoy.

Saute spinach in some Olivio light (or regular olive oil) until slightly wilted. Put aside to cool.

Coat a baking dish with olivio and place two chicken breasts in it. Slice a small slit down the middle, put a couple small slices of parmesan cheese in there then cover with spinach. Place two slices of bacon on top. Season the whole thing with thyme, oregano and garlic the top with grated parmesan and bake for 40-45 minutes on 350 or until chicken is done.
