Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner – 20 Minutes – Gluten Free – Paleo

easy blackened salmon dinner-9-poppopcooks.com-quick and easy-weeknight recipes-quick and easy recipes for busy people

This Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner is…

…….. also very very good. 

Skinless salmon filets work best for this recipe. If you buy the salmon fresh the person helping you will skin them if you ask. If you buy them frozen look for some that have already been skinned.

You could use a lot of different combos of ingredients in the dry “rub” to get a lot of different flavors. Tonight I went with salt, dried basil, cayenne pepper, dried dill weed, lemon pepper and garlic powder. You could mix them all together in a small bowl or just sprinkle them on the filets right out of their containers.

The veggies are going to take a little more time than the salmon so let’s get them going.

Gammy likes pan fried potatoes with onion and fresh rosemary so,,,,,,,,yup, I do it for her pretty regularly. You can cook another veggie right along with the potato and onion if you want. I went with zucchini tonight.

Put a skillet on at medium high with enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Slice up the veggies and put them into the skillet with the rosemary. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Toss a couple of times to get everything coated evenly.

While the veggies are cooking put a smaller skillet on at medium high and swirl in some olive oil. Top off the salon filets with half of the “rub” on the side without the gray stripe.

Put them in the skillet with the spicy side down and the gray striped side up.

Then spice up the stripe side and cook for 2-3 minutes a side depending on how thick they are and how well done YOU like them. 

Toss the veggies a few more times as the salmon cooks. When the veggies and the salmon are done……..

……enjoy your Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner.

A light bodied white like a pinot grigio or a soave or a muscadet would go along real nicely with your Easy Blackened Salmon Dinner.

Oh, yeah and some of Poppop’s easy homemade bread is good tag along.

Spicy Easy Chicken Breast Recipe

Spicy easy chicken breast recipe-7-poppopcooks.com

This Spicy Easy Chicken Breast Recipe is a real good one for a busy weeknight. You could include some  potato slices when you put the carrots in the skillet and have the whole meal in one pan.

I wanted some pasta tonight so that’s why you will see some fettuccine in the pics. But, you could do it with any veggie combo that you want. The jalapeño peppers are what make this chicken breast recipe stand out on it’s own. So, after the peppers it’s up to you.

Let’s get it going. Put a skillet on at medium high and swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Salt and pepper the up side of the chicken breasts. Lay the breasts in the skillet with the salt and pepper side down and jazz up the new “up” side.

Cook each side about 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts. When the juices run clear and/or they are firm to a poke. I just check ’em with an instant read meat thermometer and when the thickest part is 165°F they are done. Remove them to a dish that will catch the drippings.

Add the chopped jalapeño peppers and whatever other veggies are tonight’s pick.  I went with some baby carrots and some thick zucchini slices. Salt and Pepper them.

You might like to add a pad of butter and squeeze in some lemon juice. B ut that’s up to you.Toss the veggies a few times as they cook. When they are done like you like them push them off the side of the pan and put in the breasts, the drippings and the chicken broth (or white wine).

Turn the breasts a couple of times as they warm back up and the liquid reduces.

Then when the breasts are warm serve up and enjoy your Easy Chicken Breast recipe. Spoon some of the liquid left in the skillet on top of the breasts and grate a little parmesan on too. You deserve it!

Oven Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini

oven baked parmesan crusted zucchini2-2-poppopcooks.com

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.

Oven baked parmesan crusted zucchini-poppopcooks.com

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.

Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner – One Pan – Easy Cleanup – Tasty – Gluten Free

Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner one pot stovetop-5-poppopcooks.com

Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner

You can use a stovetop grill like we did here or do it on your outside barbecue grill or just a big skillet – or two or just put everything on a cookie sheet and into a 400°F oven for about 10-12 minutes. Tonight’s method of choice is a stove top grill. It finds it’s way into our routine once or twice a week and it always puts out a good looking and tasty meal.

Put the grill on at medium high and spray or wipe it with olive oil. Salt and pepper the chicken and put the filets on the center of the grill. Cut the zucchini into about 3/8″ slices, crossways or longways, it’s up to you. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them also into about 3/8″ slices. Salt and pepper both sides of the veggies. Spread them all out on the grill.

Turn it all over when they get seared and grill the other side.

Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner-2-poppopcooks.com

Sometimes the chicken gets done before the veggies. If that happens to you just snuggle the sweet potatoes up and put the chicken on top to stay warm while the potatoes finish.

Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner-3-poppopcooks.com

When the chicken is firm or reads 165°F on an instant read meat thermometer (about 3-4 minutes a side) and the veggies are soft to a poke with a fork (about 4-5 minutes a side) serve up and enjoy your Quick Easy Grilled Chicken Dinner.

PS – Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on the zucchini. It’s good!
