Food/Recipes

This has been a hectic week. Suppers were quick and easy on the cook.

Calzones

Calzones by Pillsbury

To save time, our Calzones were Pepperoni and cheese-no sausage. I used Ready to Eat Ekerich Pepperoni. Each piece of dough was topped with a heaping tablespoon of pizza sauce, 4 or 5 slices of pepperoni, and a 1 slice of mozzarella cheese. Then, I baked them at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. After they are baked, you could top them with melted butter and a dusting of grated parmesan cheese.

 

Baked Sweet Chili Lime Chicken Tenders

Chili Lime Chicken Tenders

by SixSistersStuff.com

These are a must-try. I left out the sesame seeds and green onions. This recipe is definitely on our Favorites List.

TIP:  Don’t use a microwave to reheat chicken tenders. They will turn to rubber. Either bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or reheat in an air fryer set to 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes.
