Cooking Up Some MORE Pinterest Recipes!

I stayed true to my mission to keep cooking those pinned Pinterest recipes even while here in Cleveland.  Here are the ones I tried this week and my thoughts on them...

One of the two entrees I tried was a "Crock Pot Chicken Terriyaki".

INGREDIENTS:
1 pound of chicken sliced or cubed
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Terriyaki or Soy Sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 minced garlic cloves

Cut the chicken up and place it in the crock pot.  Mix the other ingredients together and pour on top of the chicken.  Set your crock pot on high and cook for 6-8 hours.  Whisk a little corn starch with hot water and pour over chicken mixture at the end of cook time to thicken up.  Serve over rice.


MY THOUGHTS:
Really good and simple dish to make, especially when you know you have a busy day coming up and need to have dinner ready when you get home.  If you decide to add broccoli and mushrooms to this dish, use fresh ingredients AND add them at the end so they won't cook apart.

The other entree' that I tried this week was actually found on Facebook; "Chicken Crescent Rolls"

INGREDIENTS:
2 cans of low fat refrigerator crescents
1 can of healthy low sodium cream of chicken soup(26oz)
1 cup fat free cheddar cheese
2 boneless skinless chicken breast

I boil my chicken breast then shred, roll out each individual crescent, place about a Tbsp of shredded chicken in center and roll it up.

Bake on 350 for about 5 minutes until just starting to turn golden. Pour Cream of chicken over the top bake an additional 10 min top with cheddar cheese and bake for 10 more minutes.



MY THOUGHTS:
This recipe was really good and super easy!  I would definitely recommend it.  Just watch those crescent rolls closely.  It took mine longer to brown and I had to flip them over once.

My FAVORITE recipe of the week, though,  was the "Baked S'Mores"! 

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars
1 and 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, and vanilla together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, stir flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into butter mixture. Press half of dough into a greased 9×9 pan. Set chocolate bars on top. Spread marshmallow fluff over chocolate and top with remaining dough.


MY THOUGHTS:
OH MY GOODNESS!  This dessert is DELICIOUS!!!  Make sure when you put the remaining dough on top, you press pieces of it it down flat with your hands first and then and lay it on top.  The marshmallow fluff will ooze up through this dessert and like the recipe says, "When was ozzing marshmallow ever a problems?!"

And so that's it for this week's Pinterest/Facebook recipe experiment...I can't WAIT to try some more out next week!!!
