Oven Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini is easy and it…

…..jazzes up a quick weeknight meal. Way better than frozen or canned veggies.

We have never had leftovers from our oven baked parmesan crusted zucchini. It always gets eaten ALL up. Make it once and you will see – and taste – why.

Set the oven at 400F. Spray oil a baking pan or cookie sheet. You could line it with aluminum foil or parchment paper before spraying to make an easier cleanup.

Slice up a large zucchini in about 1/4″ slices. Put about 3 tbsp. olive oil in a mixing bowl. Add the zucchini and toss the slices getting them coated with the oil. Sprinkle with half of the parmesan, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes (optional on the red pepper flakes). Carefully toss again. Sprinkle them with the rest of the cheese and spices and toss again.

Spread the slices out in the pan and place in the oven. When the bottom is browned (about 5 minutes) switch the oven setting to broiler and give them another 4-5 minutes to brown the top.

Talk about Quick and Easy!  This Simple Garlic Shrimp is that and more, like, delicious, crowd pleaser, good for a weeknight after a hectic day and even for a Sunday sit down.

It is one of our favorites.

Along the lines of of our Pan Seared Scallops have the rest of the meal ready before you put the shrimp into the skillet.

Let’s get  the pasta going and throw together a caprese salad or…..

……any other kind of salad or veggie that YOU want to go along with your simple garlic shrimp.

Get the shrimp ready if you have to thaw, peel and devein them. Put a skillet on at medium heat and add a swirl of olive oil and half of the butter.

Chop up the garlic and when your pasta is cooked al dente drain all but a tiny bit of the water and put it on a small burner set to as low as it can to keep the pasta warm and stir it a couple of times while you work the quick and easy magic with your simple garlic shrimp.  

Put the shrimp in the skillet and spread them out so that they are all laying flat. Add the garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (optional).

Squeeze a little lemon juice and if your feeling a little adventurous also a dash of white wine. Give the shrimp about a minute a side.

When the shrimp is pink on the outside and opaque in the middle put in the rest of the butter and the chopped – or dried – parsley. Stir it all together and when the butter has melted…..

……..serve up and enjoy your Simple Garlic Shrimp. 

A nice white wine like a french Muscadet or an Italian Pinot Grigio pairs up real well with this Simple Garlic Shrimp.

Philly Cheesesteak From Leftovers – 15 Minutes – Quick and Easy

Philly Cheesesteak from leftovers-2-poppopcooks.com-cheesesteak-philadelphia cheesesteak -chilly cheese steak sandwich recipe-how to make philly cheesesteak-homemade philly cheesesteak

Philly Cheesesteak from Leftovers isn’t….

….just for those weeknights when you want to put together a no effort no brainer supper. It’s a real good meal that can be put together very Quick and Easy.

We had some leftover London Broil that I had

done pizzaiola style so…

….I rinsed off the slices and cut them into strips. You could get some thin sliced chuck or round beefsteaks or go to the deli section and get some roast beef sliced thin or even use some leftover rotisserie chicken.

Cut some onion into strips and slice or chop some cloves of garlic.

Put a skillet on at medium high and eyeball just enough olive oil to cover the bottom.

Put the beef, onions and garlic into the skillet. Sprinkle  with some salt and pepper.

Philly Cheesesteak from leftovers-poppopcooks.com-cheesesteak-philadelphia cheesesteak -chilly cheese steak sandwich recipe-how to make philly cheesesteak-homemade philly cheesesteak

Stir or toss it all a few times as it cooks. When it all is almost cooked to how you want it to be, when served, spread it all out and lay the slices of cheese on top.

When the cheese has melted put your philly cheesesteak onto some Italian bread or rolls. Or, just serve it with the bread on the side and let your tribe put it together any way that they want.

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe – Twenty Five Minutes

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-5-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

This Easy Chicken Breast Recipe uses sage which goes along with poultry real well.

My turkey dressing always goes over good and sage is an important ingredient.

Sage can grow just about anywhere except for blazing hot desert and freezing polar weather. Just plant it in the garden or in a pot on a window sill or the deck and let it do it’s thing.

And if you do live inside the Arctic circle or in the Sahara desert or if you just aren’t a plant person dried sage from the spice rack works okay.

Gammy learned growing up on a farm here in Texas that when the sage plants are blooming that means it will rain soon. So far she hasn’t convinced me about that one.

You will make this easy chicken breast recipe like a chef. It’s simple and has only a few ingredients that come together real well.

Instead of a humdrum weeknight supper you and your special squeeze will be able to close your eyes and imagine you are dining out at a fine hillside ristorante in Tuscany.

I put together a scallions – aka green onions – , peas and gnocchi in one skillet while I was doing the easy chicken breast recipe in another skillet. 

Regular old onions or shallots will work instead of scallions, if you like.

If your chicken breasts are frozen put them in the microwave to thaw out. One skillet at medium heat with about 1/8″ of good extra virgin olive oil. Another skillet at medium high with about 2-3 tablespoons of regular olive oil. Just eyeball enough to coat the bottom of the skillet plus a little more.

While the pans are getting hot clean and chop up the scallions – or onions – and put them in the medium heat extra virgin skillet and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Stir or toss them a few times as they cook.

Salt and pepper the up side of the chicken breasts and put them in their skillet with the seasoned side down and then salt and pepper the new up side.

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

While it’s all cooking coarsely chop up the garlic and the sage leaves.

When the scallions just start to get translucent add the peas and the gnocchi. Spread it all out…. 

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-4-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

……and add enough chicken broth to just barely get up to the top of the gnocchi.

Turn the heat up to medium high until it starts to simmer then lower it to medium. Mix it all together and stir or toss it all a few more times and when the  gnocchi is okay to a nibble test it all is ready to serve.

If the chicken skillet is still busy just lower the heat as low as it can go so the veggies will keep warm.

Give  the chicken breasts about 3-5  minutes a side depending on the thickness. When they are leaking clear liquid and/or are firm to a finger poke or better yet if they read 165° on a meat thermometer they are done.

Remove them to a shallow bowl that will catch the drippings.

Put the butter, lemon juice with the rinds, sage and garlic into the chicken skillet. Using a wooden spoon stir it all together while scraping the bits left from the chicken off the bottom.

As soon as the garlic gets fragrant – about a minute – add the white wine and stir it all up.

Put the breast and the drippings back in the skillet to warm back up and spoon the liquid and the veggies over the breasts. Turn them over a couple of times through the process. 

You did great!! Some sage advice here – sorry – you and your honey really should finish that bottle of white wine while dining on the results of your easy chicken breast recipe.
