Hey everyone! I'm back in the kitchen and loving the new recipes I've tried. I made pan seared chicken and onion cheddar mashed potatoes yesterday. Yumm!

I followed this recipe for the chicken. I didn't shred the chicken. I used breast halves with the bone in. I also seasoned with Italian dressing (it's what I had) and seasoning salt, garlic powder and black pepper.

For the potatoes I followed this recipe:


5 pounds yukon gold potatoes
3/4 cup 2% milk
3 tablespoons butter (we use Smart Balance)
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 white onion chopped and sautéed
salt and pepper, to taste

Cut potatoes into large chunks; rinse well. Cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and boil gently for about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Add the milk and butter; beat until you like the consistency. Mine are a little chunky. Stir in shredded cheese and onions. Add salt and pepper to taste. (original recipe before my modifications can be found here)

By the way, if you try any of these recipes PLEASE let me know how they turned out for you and if you made any modifications. I have some salmon marinating in a teriyaki sauce I made... I'll post that recipe and the outcome later this week. I'm still working on the book as well. Im sure I'll have some more pages ready for posting this weekend!

Until then ciao!
