Good food

I'm have never posted recipes, but I have a few friends who have and I love getting new good recipes. So I want to share a couple of mine I found! Maybe i'll do it more often.

As someone who doesn't love to think of something to cook, or even cook much, I love it when I get excited about a good recipe. Don't get me wrong, when I plan my meals or know what i'm cooking, I like it, it's just thinking of something that sucks. I love baking more though! I'm a picky eater so I love it when I love food. It's exciting.

ps: I like EASY food.

These are awesome recipes, you should try.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

3 Boneless chicken breasts
6 thin slices of ham
3 slices Swiss cheese


bread crumbs

Flatten chicken with a rolling pin. Lay the slice of ham on the breast, then the cheese. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Dip each roll in beaten egg and then bread crumbs. Place into lightly greased baking dish and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Add water if it appears dry.

A couple tips I will use next time.

To make the egg and bread crumbs set and stay thicker you can refrigerate it for a little bit before putting it into the pan. Also I used a pasta sauce, called parmesan something. It was AWESOME. Also you could use mozza instead of montery jack ontop, it's cheaper and would be just as good.

And then one of my favorite things to order is chicken parmesan, and this recipe is so good that I will make it now because it's pretty much the same!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

2 eggs beaten

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

7 oz seasoned bread crumbs

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 tbsp vegetable oil

12 oz pasta sauce

6 slices monterey jack cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Pour beaten eggs into a shallow dish or bowl. In another shallow dish or bowl, mix together the grated Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Dip chicken breasts into beaten egg, then into bread crumb mixture to coat.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add coated chicken and saute for about 8 to 10 minutes each side, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
  4. Pour tomato sauce into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Add chicken, then place a slice of Monterey Jack cheese over each breast, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.

Your welcome.

I hate trying to think of what to make for dinner too. I so want to make both of these. Too bad I live out in the boondocks so I can't get all the stuff to make either of those tonight.
