TT w/Linky: Hawaiian Chicken ~ Baked or Crock Pot Style

My kids LOVE Hawaiian pizza, so I figured they would easily go for some Hawaiian Chicken with out too much of a fuss.  My kids aren’t THAT picky of eaters but when ever I try something new, I know I’ll get the “look”….especially from Paige, the six year old….and the dinner battle ensues.   Soooo, after bribing them by dangling a glass of Chocolate Yogurt Mousse in front of their disappointed little faces when announcing Hawaiian Chicken was for dinner last night, they became extremely enthusiastic to eat the Hawaiian Chicken.
The bribery worked….this time.  They cleaned their entire plate, even the brown rice that was hidden underneath.  But they truly DID enjoy their meal.  I’ll be doing this one again.

Here’s what you need……plus salt {entire recipe below}

Mix the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, crushed pineapple and brown sugar together.

Salt and pepper {if you wish} the chicken breasts and thighs and place in to a baking dish.  I used my Dutch oven……or you could totally prepare this in a Crock Pot as well.  Pour the mixed ingredients over the top of the chicken.  

Bake at 350 degrees, add pineapple chunks, bake some more.

Serve over your favorite rice.  I used brown rice.  Really good and I think there’s some left over today for lunch!







Hawaiian Chicken

Ingredients:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and or thighs
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 cup crushed pineapple with juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can pineapple chunks…your choice on size

Directions:
Mix all ingredients together except the pineapple chunks.

Salt and pepper the chicken, place in a baking dish and pour the mixture over the chicken.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  For the last 20 minutes of cooking time, add the pineapple chunks, without juice.  Cook the remaining 20 minutes.

Serve over rice.

If you go the Crock Pot route, cook for 4-6 hours.

Pinot Shredded Beef Burritos

If your kids are like mine, you can wrap {or hide} just about anything in a burrito and they’ll eat it up.

We have burritos quite often in our house…chicken, black bean, barbecue chicken, ground beef or turkey but just a few days ago I discovered,…

Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles of Joy

I can always count on my brother-in-law to serve bacon wrapped something for Christmas dinner and this year he AND my niece, Ami, did NOT disappoint.  
Christmas evening I tasted the BEST green beans I have probably EVER had in my life.  My niece wrapped green bean bundles in bacon, drizzled them with a butter, garlic and brown sugar mixture and baked.
Now THIS is my kind of baking, without a doubt.  I think I gobbled up about three bundles right at the start………


but not before I had a few bacon wrapped prawns my brother-in-law had made.

Okay, I start back up on my workout routine and low-cal eating regime next week……with everyone else.
Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles of Joy

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh green beans

10-12 slices of thick-cut bacon

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish
with non-stick spray.

Wash and thoroughly dry green beans, then season with salt
and pepper. Bundle together about 5-8 green beans – this will depend on your
size of beans and the amount of beans you get for one pound, I use the French Beans…they’re thin and easy to wrap together.  Wrap a slice of bacon around the center of the
beans to hold it together. Lay the bundle bacon seam side down in the baking
dish to hold it together. Repeat with remaining beans.

Heat a small saucepan over low heat. Add butter, brown sugar
and garlic and whisk until melted and combined. Using a pastry brush, brush the
mixture over top of each green bean bundle. Cover the bundles with foil and
bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10-15 minutes more.  A little piece of heaven emerges!
