win_20170107_21_31_21_pro-2

We love these non traditional burgers using fresh ground (16 ounces) Chicken (or Turkey Meat), 2 cups baby spinach, optional feta cheese crumbles, black pepper, to taste, dash of Worcestershire sauce. They can be grilled or baked.

In a large mixing bowl add ground chicken, chopped fresh baby spinach, feta (if using), black pepper, Worcestershire, mix well form 4 large patties, 4 rolls/buns of your choice, any condiments you love (lettuce, kale, spinach, tomato, onion, cheese, etc.). I love to bake these on a rimmed baking sheet pan @ 400 F for 12-14 minutes, (turning them at the hallway point).

Serve with pickles and chips.

Enjoy.

Baked Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

win_20170102_22_27_11_pro-3

I made a bunch of foods for the freezer before we left on our trip on our boat. This was one of them and is a yummy dish. I use 16 ounces spaghetti, 2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 1 cup milk, 1/4 stick melted butter, one garlic clove minced, 2 cups cubed cooked chicken, grated parmesan cheese for serving.

Boil spaghetti in salted water until cooked al dente, drain, add into a mixing bowl, add milk, minced garlic, stir well, add melted cheese and butter, cooked chicken cubes, stir well again, transfer to a baking dish. Now, for convenience I froze the dish before baking. If you are going to make several servings they can also be frozen until ready to bake and serve. Just thaw in the refrigerator overnight, Place in a hot 350 F oven for 25-30 minutes, covered.

Serve with a side salad and garlic toast for an easy, yummy hot meal!

Enjoy!
