Night One of the Family Dinner Challenge!
No, it's not pretty, but it's real. Here's night one's meal (E's dish with a salad, not pictured). We had Honey Mustard Chicken and it was dee-lish! I know chicken is good for you, but I always find it so bland. Not so with these toppings! (Naturally, you can use less, to make it lighter and healthier). Miss P set the table, and we actually did have the TV on since it was the final game of the world series (thank God that is over).
After we played some games. One was "Rattlesnake Tag." One person closes their eyes and the other shakes a rattle or bell. The blinded person has to try and tag the rattler. A third person observes to make sure everyone is safe! Then, we played "Graveyard." (Also can be called "Statues.") One or more people have to lie down and be still. The other has to try and make the still player(s) laugh. In the 'statues' version, the players have to pick a pose and remain still. Fun night at home!
OK, here is the recipe:
Honey Mustard Chicken
4 chicken breasts
8 strips bacon
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. honey mustard dressing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook bacon strips (I like to microwave cook them), break into pieces and set aside. Brown chicken until no longer pink. In a baking dish, layer as follows: chicken breasts, bacon strips, cheddar cheese, and then drizzle honey mustard on top. Bake for 10 minutes. Voila!
