ABC Sheet Pan Dinner

This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are my own.

Sheet pan dinners are all the rage right now.  I love how easy they are to make, and also to clean up.  It's also a great way to use up various veggies you have on hand  As I trimmed brussels sprouts with my paring knife, I wondered, how would apples work as part of a sheet pan dinner?

I cubed up a large apple, peeled some carrots, and added them to the pan with the brussels sprouts.  I considered turkey sausage for the protein, but then remembered that I had some boneless skinless chicken breast I'd defrosted and not cooked. I cubed that up and added to the pan too.

I sprinkled the apples with cinnamon.  I drizzled olive oil over the chicken and veggies, then hit them with some kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper.  To finish, some dried thyme on the chicken and carrots. I popped the pan in the oven and cooked it for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.  Your time will vary based on the veggies you use and the size they are cut.

Easy as ABC! Apples, brussels sprouts, carrots & chicken, of course! I served it over some a brown rice and quinoa mix.  This version makes 2 servings, but it can easily be doubled or tripled.  So delicious, and you can't beat the easy clean up!

So many great recipes being shared this week, I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am! Don't forget to enter the giveaway for your chance to win a prize package from Swiss Diamond and the other amazing #AppleWeek Sponsors!  Info on the prize packs can be found here.

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
