Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken – Hobo Style

Here’s another recipe I found through Pinterest that I tried during Spring Break. Here‘s the original website where the recipe came from. It’s a delicious cheesy bacon ranch chicken baked hobo style. What do I mean by hobo style? You dump everything in some foil, seal, and bake. Easy!!!

Ingredients:
1 package Stuffing mix; chicken flavor 
1 1/4 cups Water
4 Boneless skinless chicken breast halves
4 cups Broccoli Florets
1 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices Cooked bacon; crumbled (or bag of real bacon bits)

4 tbsp Ranch dressing divided

Directions:
Heat over to 400 degrees.
Tear off foil into 4 large strips and spray with non-stick spray.
Mix Stuffing mix and 1-1/4 cup water. Spoon 1/4 of mixture onto each foil.
Place 1 chicken breast on top of stuffing
Place 1 cup of broccoli florets on chicken
Sprinkle 1/4-1/2 cup cheese over broccoli
Sprinkle 1/4 of bacon bits over the cheese.
Pour 1-2 tablespoons over bacon. (I like a little more than the recipe calls for.)

Fold foil and seal the edges, leaving it tented for good baking. 
Place each foil package onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 35-40 minutes at 400 degrees.
Your dinner should look like this when it comes out of the oven.
Slide the food on a pretty plate and enjoy! We really liked this meal and will definitely be having it again!

Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding Cake

I love dessert. I really love EASY desserts. And let me tell you, this is an easy dessert! It is a recipe I found on Pinterest and made during Spring Break last week. Doesn’t it look yummy?

Ingredients:

Gingerbread Mix
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of raisins (I left those out…on purpose!)
2-1/4 cup water
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter

Directions:

1. Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
2. Mix gingerbread mix and milk. Batter will be thick. Pour into cooker and spread out evenly.
3. Put the water, brown sugar and butter into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes uncovered.
4. Pour mixture over the gingerbread batter in the cooker. It will seem like there is way too much water, but that is okay. It is what makes the ooey gooey pudding part.
5. Turn on high and cover with a lid. Cook on high for 2 hours.
6. Turn off and uncover. Let sit for 30-45 minutes to cool a little bit.
7. Serve warm! And add a little vanilla ice cream on top!

Delicious! What’s been your favorite Pinterest recipe that you have tried out?

Roasted Garlic, Pesto and Chicken Pizza

With Spring Break giving me some much needed time to just “be”, I decided to try some Pinterest recipes I’ve pinned. So last night I made Roasted Garlic, Pesto and Chicken Pizza. (the original site from the Pinterest pin is Pie Birds, Buttons, and Muddy Puddles.  There is a step by step tutorial on this site.). FYI: I did not make my own crust, but bought some artizan pizza crust at Walmart.

Ingredients:

2 pizza crusts
Jar of pesto
Head of garlic, roasted. See how to roast garlic at Pie Birds, Buttons, and Muddy Puddles.
2 cups of mozzarella cheese
1 cup of Parmesan cheese
2-3 cups of chopped chicken

Preheat oven to whatever the package of crusts says.
Mash roasted garlic and spread 1/2 over one pizza crust.
Pour 1/2 a jar of pesto onto the crust and spread evenly.
Place 1/2 of the chopped chicken onto your crust.
Top with 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup Paemesan cheese over the mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on the crust and what the packaging says.

I have to say that my family loved it! It was different and had great flavor. We will definitely be making this again! Doesn’t the picture look yummy?
