Maple Apple Chicken in the Slow Cooker

Did you know you can convert all kinds of recipes to cook in the slow cooker?  This one started out as a skillet meal.  I didn’t have time to cook it right before dinner, but I did have a few minutes earlier in the day to put ingredients in the slow cooker.

The ingredients are a bit odd – Italian dressing and pancake syrup.  Not your usual combo, but it makes for a flavorful sauce with a hint of sweet.  Here’s what you’ll need to make it: [Read more…]

Easiest Ever French Toast – Taking a Slice of Bread to New Heights

Last month when I went to the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter test kitchens they fed us some delicious foods.  Lots and lots of food.  All made with ICBINB, of course.

Leave it to me to pick out the simplest idea to share with you.  In a room full of cheesecake, stuffed mushrooms, truffles (I may still have to share those) and scones, I zeroed in on toast.   I love simple, easy, manageable, effortless recipes.

Grab that tub of ICBINB and get ready to transform your morning toast. [Read more…]

Simple French Toast

There’s nothing fancy or particularly special about this French toast.  It’s one of those staple foods that nearly every household makes, but it’s also comfort food full of childhood memories.  Crisp edges, melting butter and plenty of maple syrup make it a favorite.  I add some vanilla and spices too.  Add a cup of coffee and I could be happy with this for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Maple Apple Chicken

This is a Kraft Foods recipe. It’s easy and good.

Gather up your ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breasts
2 red apples, cored and sliced
1/2 cup sliced onions (red onions are very good in this dish)
1/2 cup maple-flavored syrup
1/3 cup italian dressing

Brown the chicken in an oven-proof skillet. Add the onions and apples. Mix the syrup and dressing together and pour over the other ingredients in the skillet. Cover and finish baking at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the chickent is done.

This would be really good served with rice, using the extra sauce over the rice.
