Easy Lemon Herb Chicken

Lemon Herb Chicken Breast1200_8653You only need four ingredients to make this easy chicken recipe. Well, four plus the chicken. For anyone just learning to cook or simply short on time, this oven-baked chicken is quick, easy and healthy. I make a basting sauce of fresh lemon juice and garlic with olive oil and herbs. The chicken bakes in the oven, you baste it a couple of times, and it’s ready in 30 minutes. And get this: I line my baking pan with foil so there’s no cleanup!

For my herbs, I use a prepared formula of Italian dried herbs that includes basil, rosemary, thyme & oregano but you can use your own favorite mix. Or just use one herb that you like. Once the chicken is cooked, you let it rest for 10 minutes, then slice it and pour all the juices left in the pan over the chicken, making sure you get all the bits of garlic too. The combination of garlic, herbs, and lemon goes perfectly with chicken.

I’m having it tonight with roasted vegetables. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

Cinnamon Rolls Without Butter

Cinnamon Rolls1200 _8516It’s Sunday and that’s my day for making cinnamon rolls. I always make them entirely without butter and they always turn out beautifully. I use a trans fat-free spread for the filling and I don’t miss the butter one bit. This time, to keep the edges from over-browning, I used a cake strip and it kept the edges nice and soft, just like the middle.

I can see why it’s one of my most popular recipes. It’s easy and healthier than most other recipes that use sticks of butter. The only problem I have now is… How do I keep from eating all of it by tomorrow?! Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

I Made Sandwich Buns

IMG_8464 copyWe are heading to Las Vegas for a few days and I always make sandwiches for the drive. I decided to see if I could make sandwich buns from my simple whole wheat bread recipe and look how they turned out! They will soon be salmon sandwiches with lots of lettuce along with a bag of sliced carrots and peppers.

I used the exact recipe for my simple whole wheat bread without changing a thing but instead of shaping it into a loaf, I cut it into 8 pieces, shaped each one into a ball, put them on my baking sheet and flattened them with my hand. Here’s how they looked before rising…

IMG_8461 copyAnd here they are after 35 minutes in my warming drawer…

IMG_8462 copyI baked them at 375° F for about 12 minutes. I’ve already made dinner rolls from this recipe and now if you’re wondering if you can make whole wheat sandwich buns or hamburger buns like these, yes you can.

Easy No Knead Rye Bread

No Knead Rye Bread1200_8252I never dreamed I could make my own rye bread as good as the one at the deli but I did. And it’s not only as good, it’s easy too…  because there’s no kneading! I grew up on rustic breads and rye is my favorite, especially with caraway seeds and now I’m making my own!

I have made this bread using the faster method using hot water, and also the overnight method that uses cool water. They both turn out the same. It’s not a big loaf, usually measuring 7 inches across and 3 inches tall.

Caraway seeds give it that “rye bread” taste but you can leave the seeds out and you still get a nice rustic farm bread. I think this is my 6th variation of no knead bread. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

CHRIS MADE MY STRAWBERRY CAKE
“Hi Jenny, My name is Chris and I’m from Manchester NH. Here are the pics. The first one is the “deconstructed” version and the second shows the caked assembled. We decided against adding more strawberries on top and frosting the outside of the cake with the remaining whipped cream. Everyone wanted to add the remaining toppings to their individual slices of cake so they could customize it to there tastes. It worked out great and was a good conversation piece.  I’ve been tasked with bringing this cake to every family get together from now on. Thanks.”

TROY MADE MY CINNAMON ROLLS
“Hi Jenny, I’m not a cook by any stretch of the imagination however, due to very high bad cholesterol levels I have had to change my entire lifestyle. As you can imagine, this included reducing all dairy and animal fats as much as possible….which is how I found your recipes. So….today…I worked on my car, continued a woodworking project in the workshop, and made my first cinnamon rolls. They didn’t turn out quite as delicious as yours look..but I was pretty happy with my first attempt! 🙂  …now, I’m going to work on a few of your other recipes…”
