Green Bean Casserole Remix

This is NOT your regular green bean casserole!  No canned beans, no soup cans, and no french fried onions required!

Instead, this yummy-down home-delectable-creamy-goodness-of-a-dish is going to please your inner bean-lover self!

Found at Pioneer Woman,THIS is the recipe.  It creates a wonderful sauce that we also used to top a bed of white rice.

To compliment such great side dishes, I decided to go with something found on Pinterest during my one visit there.  I haven’t yet committed to the Pinterest craze — mainly for fear that I will be hooked!  Still, the one time I did look, this garlic chicken recipe really stood out.

All you do is saute’ 4 minced garlic cloves in 3 teaspoons olive oil until tender.  Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar.  Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.  Add salt and pepper to taste, then bake uncovered for 15-30 minutes at 500 degrees.

Once again, the family showered me with praise and insisted on doing the dishes thanked me for such a great dinner.  The boys ate without complaint.  Hubby (who doesn’t normally like chicken) thought it was wonderful, and Daughter 2 devoured her dinner (even thought she thought it was a pork chop instead of chicken, lol).

All-in-all both were wonderful new dishes for my Cooking Extravaganza week!  I’m going to slow down on the food now and try to post something more than recipes.  After all the eating we’ve done in the last several days, maybe I should make Fitness and Weight Control my next subject 😉
