We had a package of the Match Meat Chicken hanging out in the freezer so I decided to see if there was something I could make with it without having to go to the store. Match Meat Chicken stuffed with spinach was it! You’ll find the recipe here, but you can’t link directly to individual recipes, so just find it in the list and click. The only change I made was to season the meat with salt, pepper, oregano and a little garlic powder before dividing and filling. Oh yeah, I also browned them on the George Foreman grill before baking rather than pan frying. These were really easy and so good! They look like something you spent way more time on than you did. See how pretty it is?
The broccoli is just steamed broccoli, but the potatoes are a new product Cosmo’s is carrying, Instant Organic Mashed Potatoes by Edward & Sons. We tried the roasted garlic version. They were good and practically instant. If you aren’t into cooking, are in a hurry, or just need another quick component to your meal, these might be a good option for you. I’m probably too cheap to use them all that often though because I don’t mind making mashed potatoes.
I’m not very good at throw together dinners unless it’s something like veggies, fake meat & mashed potatoes. Every week, I go through my cookbooks, pick things to make, make a list, go to the farmer’s market once and call it good. Kevin is a lot more free-form when it comes to cooking at home. I usually handle those details, but last night Kevin brought over some Soy Curls and Chik-Style Seasoning and said “I want to use these.”
Hmm…okay. I had planned a pasta with beets and I didn’t think the Soy Curls would go very well. So we switched things up. Kevin was in charge of the Soy Curls. He followed the directions for using the Chik seasoning with them. I remembered seeing a cheezy sauce I wanted to try so made that up. And then I boiled up the tri-color rotini I had along with some frozen broccoli. It all came together fairly quickly and turned out super yummy! And bonus, I now have cheezy sauce powder that I can mix up quickly at some future date. Yay!
Kevin always makes his food look better on the plate than I do. And you know, we both augmented the drizzled cheezy sauce with piled on cheezy sauce. Yum!
