Chicken and Veggie Alfredo done easy. Doesn’t get any better than that, does it? I don’t think so. The flavors in this dish are just phenomenal and it’s so quick and easy to throw together, you won’t believe it. And if you’re serving friends, they’ll never believe that it took, literally minutes to make. It would be one pot, but it’s easier to cook the chicken and make the sauce itself in a skillet. And the veggies cook better separately in a pan. Still, the clean up isn’t bad, just the skillet, pan and then plates and silverware, of course.
For those who don’t know the Trim Healthy Mama lingo, MIM is ‘Muffin In A Mug’. These really turn out well. I thought I was going to have issues with the texture of these but I usually don’t. As long as I use the right amount of flour and cook them long enough, anyway. You have to be careful not to OVER cook them, though. Because then they get dry and tough. No one wants that!
This MIM is super yummy. I have seen several recipes floating around for berry MIM’s and nothing that really excited me much, so I thought I would just throw some things together and see what happened. I went with things that sounded good together and this is what I came up with… It did not disappoint. I did revise my written recipe before sharing here, because it came out a little dry. I adjusted the cooking time and the amount of flour. This might just be my favorite yet!
Wow! Posting two days in a row, people!! Its getting real all up in here! REAL! Hehe. No, I just happened to cook something new two days in a row. Some times that’s how I roll, sometimes not…I knew I was going to do that this week, because the recipes I saw last week were amazing and I HAD to try them. Of course, I switched them up a bit to make them my own, but they inspire my creations!
Check these babies out…
Originally these were chicken nachos. I am not against using chicken. I wanted to use beef because that’s what I had on hand. Use whatever meat you want. Cuz, hey…I’m not the boss of you.
Today I’m sharing a fabulous recipe called Egg Roll In A Bowl. It’s super easy and super yummy. It is supposed to taste like an egg roll but not be fried and unhealthy like an egg roll. It definitely does not disappoint! It’s actually pretty versatile, too. You can use any ground meat in it and you can adjust seasonings to your liking. Also, you can omit ingredients as well. Don’t like onions? Don’t add them. Don’t like purple cabbage? Don’t use it! Get the idea?
Add oil to pan and melt; add onions and brown in oil.
In a small bowl, mix garlic, soy sauce and ground ginger well.
Add garlic mixture to pan and mix into ground pork.
Immediately add cabbage slaw mix to pan after mixing in garlic mixture into pork and onions.
Stir cabbage slaw into pork and garlic mixture, making sure to mix everything well.
Cook for several minutes, stirring often.
Cook 8-10 minutes or until the cabbage slaw is softened to desired texture and everything is warmed through.
I used turkey sausage for this because that is what I had on hand. While it was good, I think ground pork or chicken would have worked better. I am also going to work on the seasonings to get them just right. I will probably update this post when I get the seasonings just right. As written, this is an S meal for all my THM friends! :)
**I also used the cabbage slaw mix that is prepackaged in the store. It is a great time saver and works perfectly for this dish!!
I have a yummy smoothie to share with you guys today. Yes, I know it’s fall and y’all are drinking everything warm now, but I just had to try this recipe. It sounded so good and I finally had everything I needed for it. I am so glad I did, too. It’s delicious!. Just bundle up in a blanket and try it! You won’t be sorry, I promise! And since it was so good, I had to share it with all of you!
As you can see from the photo, I did not peel my apple. You can if you like. It’s up to you. I washed my apple well before cutting it up. I just cut it into large chunks before throwing it into the blender.
I have seen several recipes for these apple pie muffins online. Some call for oat fiber, some for whole wheat flour. I have seen some that called for greek yogurt and some that didn’t. So I looked at all of them, compared them and came up with one that I thought I would like. I wasn’t disappointed. I don’t think you will be, either… At least I hope not. I added a couple things I didn’t see in any of the recipes I saw online. You know, my little stamp to make them my very own.
Don’t they look delish?? MMhhmm…I thought so, too! Yes, of course I’ll share the recipe with you!!
Have you ever made your own hot cocoa? I don’t mean opening a package and dumping it in a cup and adding some hot water…I mean making it from scratch. It’s pretty amazing. Especially the recipe I just made today! The best part? It’s SUGAR FREE!! And it still tastes AMAZING!!!
And if you put it in a pretty mug, it looks pretty darn spiffy, too!
