This recipe can be made on a stove top grill, George Foreman(tm) Grill or even the one in your back yard.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              about 2 pounds of chicken cutlets

2 medium eggplants

about 6 good size tomatoes

Fresh Mozzarella cheese

block parmesan cheese

2 cloves of garlic

1 cup olive oil

course ground black pepper

salt

First thing you need to do is infuse the olive oil with the garlic. This is done by thinly slicing the cloves and roasting them in the olive oil at medium heat. About five minutes should be plenty. Reserve the oil as it will be used in the rest of the recipe as well.

Now, slice the tomatoes vertically and place on cookie sheet. Brush them with some of the garlic infused oil and dash them with salt and pepper. Slow roast in oven @ 250 degrees for about an hour and a half.

About thirty minutes before the tomatoes are done you may slice the eggplant into rounds, not to thin, but not so thick they dont cook well, about a half an inch is good. Brush the eggplant with the infused oil,and dash with salt and pepper as well, and grill on both sides until marks are visible and eggplant is tender. Brush the chicken with the remainder of the oil and season with the salt and pepper and grill until white in middle. About 3-4 min. on each side.

Now, you stack your ingredients for presentation. Cutlet on bottom, followed by eggplant, tomato, and thick slices of mozzarella and parmesan. top with choice of another chicken or eggplant. Enjoy!

Southwestern Chicken Salad

Boneless, skinless chicken breast or tenders

Thick cut peppered bacon

Shredded Chedder cheese, if you like a little more spice (I do) you can also use Pepper Jack cheese

Cherry tomatoes

Mrs. Dash™ Chipotle Seasoning

Avocado cubed

Lettuces of your choice

I make this on the stove top with my griddle pan, but any will do, use Pam™ or similar product to prevent sticking, and it keeps the dish healthier. If you use whole breasts trim down to tender size if you like, I do because it keeps the cooking time down and prevents the spices from burning on the chicken.

You want to cook the peppered bacon first, approx. 3 slices per salad serving, set aside.

Place chicken in pan and cook till white on the outside, sprinkle generously with the Chipotle seasoning on both sides and continue cooking until done.

While chicken is cooking you can be getting the other ingredients ready if you haven’t already. Half the tomatoes and cube the Avocado, coarse chop the cooked bacon into bite size pieces. Plate up the lettuce as this recipe is made “buffet style” individually per person.

When chicken is done, coarse chop it as well, and begin plating while chicken is warm. Plate in this order: lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, cheese, bacon and chicken.

Now top with the dressing of your choice, Ranch is best. Enjoy!!

Buffalo Tender Salad

Homemade Original and Buffalo Chicken Tenders

2 Large boneless, skinless chicken breast

2 cups flour

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

½ tsp coarse ground black pepper

48 oz. bottle vegetable oil

Buffalo  Sauce such as “Franks RedHot Wing Sauce” TM

Medium sauce pan

Trim breast and cut into strips, they can be as large or small as you like

Blend flour, garlic and pepper in large bowl

Dip cut chicken in a small bowl of water, then into flour mixture, then repeat so that the chicken is double battered. Heat nearly all of oil in saucepan on medium high heat, oil should be deep enough for chicken to deep fry with out being constricted. Add chicken gently and deep fry approx 5-7 min. depending on size.  Be sure not to over crowd the chicken, so it will cook properly. Remove and let drain. This is all you need for Original, for Buffalo place 6-8 tenders in a medium bowl with locking lid, coat with Buffalo sauce, close and gently shake to distribute the sauce, remove and place on serving dish.

For Buffalo Salad:

You can use any type or version of salad you prefer. The one I prepared consists of

Lettuce

½ cup Mushrooms

2 small Green onions

One each mini sweet pepper red/yellow

1 medium Avocado cubed

3 small Campari Tomatoes

black olives

You can use 1/2 cup Blue Cheese or chedder cheese

Ranch Dressing

Serve with Buffalo chicken cubed on top of salad with dressing over or on the side.

Serves 4 easily.
