Tasty Tuesday: Chicken Rollatini

First off, let me just say that thinking back on it, I actually did not make this EXACT recipe. It's low fat! I'm a high-fat low-carb kind of gal. Low fat makes me cringe. So though I didn't make this exact chicken rollatini I can talk to you about what I did make and what I would do differently next time. Without further delay...Chicken Rollatini with Spinach Alla Parmigiana!

I don't have any prep pictures because I hate raw chicken. Actually, I hate raw chicken so much that I almost hate cooked chicken. I try to avoid its grossness. Lucky for you there are prep pictures in the recipe post if you're into that whole raw chicken thing that is. I found this recipe several years ago and it's sat languishing in my Pinterest feed ever since. The other day as I was looking through my Recipes to Try board I saw it and thought why not?



I bought all the stuff, put the chicken in the freezer to make it later in the week only to not take it out in time and have to go out and buy more chicken, but hey, it was cheaper than going out to eat! So the recipe itself was easy enough once I had chicken that wasn't a brick. I think instead of just buying thin cut breasts I would pound them a little next time. The rolling part was a little easier than I anticipated. I mean they really stuck together and held their own. I did use whole eggs instead of egg whites for the egg dip. Next time I'll probably use straight up butter because fat is good for you! Oh, I wonder if olive oil would work? Note to self: try olive oil next time instead of butter, because olive fat is better for you than milk solids...


So I made them up, used some leftover pizza sauce from the Sicilian Pizza we had the day before. Plopped down some fresh mozzarella,back in the oven to melt and dinner was done! Overall, it wasn't bad, but it was low fat and because of that I felt like something was missing. I will try it again. Until then, it's been bumped to the Meh pile.


PS The kid didn't like it much at all, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up. The rule of thumb is that you have to try something three separate times before you discover you like it.

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
