Dijon Chicken

This has been sitting in my allrecipes.com recipe box for probably over a year now and I finally got around to trying it tonight.  It was incredible, much to my surprise!  It has a nice little zip to it from the mustard and has a great flavor combo with the parmesan cheese in the bread crumbs.  And I loved how incredibly easy this dish was, too, and I already had all the ingredients on hand.  Great for a busy night and will please the whole fam!

{What you need}
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus extra to sprinkle on top
4, 4 oz boneless chicken breasts

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 casserole dish.  In a shallow dish, whisk together mustard and milk.  In a separate shallow dish, mix together cheese and bread crumbs.  Take each chicken breast and coat it in the mustard mixture, then coating it in the bread crumb mixture.  Place in prepared dish.  Sprinkle extra parmesan cheese on top now, if desired.  Bake at 475 for 15-20 minutes

And they are soooo easy!!!!

Cheesy Bacon Pull-Apart Bread

AKA "Crack Bread."  Nuff said. 
(!!!Another winner from Pinterest!!!!)

{What you need}
1 uncut loaf sourdough bread, preferably round
about 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 oz. bag Oscar Meyer real bacon bits
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon ranch dressing mix

Cut the loaf of bread like a grid, without cutting through the bottom crust.  Sprinkle/pack the cheese down in the wedges and cuts of the loaf.  Do the same with the bacon bits.  Mix the ranch dressing mix in the melted butter and pour all over bread, making sure to get in the wedges and cuts as well.  Cover in tinfoil and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  Remove the tin foil and bake for about 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Stuff your face relentlessly.  But try not to eat the whole loaf by yourself......

This is a nock off of a salad some friends served at their wedding.  It was delicious!  I prefer it with the cole slaw dressing.  And it makes a lot, so it's great for entertaining.

{What you need}
2 cups spinach leaves
3 cups cooked penne, cooled
1.5 cups chopped sun dried tomatoes
2 cups raw peas
2 cups raw broccoli
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups cooked bacon, chopped and cooled
1 cup olives {optional}

16 oz. pepper jack cheese, cubed into cubes about the size of dice
2 cups mayo or cole slaw dressing

Put the spinach leaves aside.  Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl and toss.  Add spinach last and toss.  Serve chilled.
