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.

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.

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-3-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

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.

Shrimp Zucchini Onions Garlic – 20 minutes

Shrimp Zucchinni onions garlic-4-poppopcooks.com-Shrimp recipes-easy shrimp recipes-cooking shrimp-shrimp dishes-shrimp meals

Shrimp cooks fast. Zucchini cooks fast. Onions cook fast. Garlic cooks fast. 

So, It looks like we are going to put together a quick and easy meal. 

BTW,,also a very tasty meal.

Whenever I start some pasta to go along with this recipe it turns into a race to see if the pasta or the Shrimp Zucchini Onions Garlic skillet is going to finish first.

If you want to turn this into a one pot meal you could add a little chicken broth or just water with a little lemon juice squeezed in and put some gnocchi’s in when you add the shrimp. The gnocchi will take about the same time to cook as the shrimp.

Alright, lets get going!

If you have to thaw and/or devein the shrimp get it started. They will thaw quicker in the microwave then in water.

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

Rinse off the zucchini and slice it into about half inch thick slices. Cut the onion into strips. Add the zucchini and onion to the skillet. Salt and pepper. Toss or stir as they cook.

Shrimp Zucchinni onions garlic-poppopcooks.com-Shrimp recipes-easy shrimp recipes-cooking shrimp-shrimp dishes-shrimp meals

Chop up the garlic.

When the zucchini and the onion have started to brown…….

Shrimp Zucchinni onions garlic-2-poppopcooks.com-Shrimp recipes-easy shrimp recipes-cooking shrimp-shrimp dishes-shrimp meals

…….push them to the outside of the skillet and add the shrimp and the garlic. Squeeze in the lemon juice and toss in the rind.

Shrimp Zucchinni onions garlic-3-poppopcooks.com-Shrimp recipes-easy shrimp recipes-cooking shrimp-shrimp dishes-shrimp meals

Cook cook until they are pink on one side and then pink on the other and opaque in the middle. Enjoy!

Baked Chicken Breasts are a great way to…

…..put together a quick and easy supper on a busy weeknight.

Add the veggies and you could have your entire dinner all in one pan and leaving you free to tend to other matters while it’s in the oven.

This is what we used  along with the chicken tonight but you can make it with all kinds of variations of the meat and the veggies.

Baked Chicken With Vegetables-poppopcooks.com-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-chicken breast recipes-easy dinner recipes-baked chicken

About ten minutes in the oven. When the juices run clear from the chicken or it reads 165°F on an instant read meat thermometer switch the oven to broiler and push the veggies off to the side of the pan.
