Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Invited the girls over for a cooking date, this dish was a hit! We combined a few recipes, therefore prep time was 45 mins, ikes! Chicken was marinated night before w/lemon, s&p, onions, garlic, paprika, chilli flakes, thyme. Instead of cutting, we actually flattened the chicken breast, by: placing chicken on cutting board, covered with saran wrap, and took my IKEA $5 mallet and beat the heck out of the breast until it was about a 1/4" thin. As for filling: Combined 1/2 cup of ricotta and 1 egg (yolk), mixed in 1/2 cup of mozzeralla cheese and 1 tblspn of grated parmesan cheese. Added s & p pepper and pinch of nutmeg. Added cooled spinach that was cooked in a skillet with butter (med heat), 1 tbspn of chopped onion and 3 cloves garlic for 3 - 5 mins before adding spinach, parsley and basil. We took filling, added to the middle of breast and rolled, using toothpicks to secure. We melted 1-2 tbspns of butter in the meantime. Breading: In a shallow baking dish we put about 1 cup of bread crumbs, seasoned with a little more black pepper and thyme (yes, lots of kick to our final product:)...Caribbean background;). We then took a basting brush, dipped it in the melted butter & covered over the stuffed breast. Then we took the chicken breast and dipped in bread crumbs. We warmed up sauce, with yes, a little more seasoning and allowed it to simmer for the 40 mins while chicken baked. We then added sauce after 40 mins, and then covered with shredded mozerella cheese.

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Just tried this recipe last night, and it turned out GREAT!! The aroma, taste and just biting into it was amazing....I ate half a loaf by myself by accident - I was testing it! Being new to the kitchen, I wasn't quite sure of the "utensils" I would need. For example: I used a potato masher to mash the bananas, a wooden spoon to combine the dry/wet ingredients mixed for about 10-20 seconds and then used the wire rack from my toaster oven to cool the 2 loaves of bread. All worked out! The only adjustment I made was substituting a cup of brown sugar, and using about 5 bananas. Very moist bread that I'm proud to bring to other people's house over the Christmas holidays! I HIGHLY recommend this recipe if you're looking for an easy, tasty, sweet dish!
