Yummy Recipes

Basil Pesto
Alfredo Sauce
1 Chicken Breast (cooked and cubed)
Mozzarella Cheese
Spinach (optional) 
Pizza Crust (recipe below)
2 1/2 cups Flour
2 3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 to 1 cup water
Mix dry ingredients together. Then slowly add wet ingredients. If too sticky, add more water. Kneed dough until smooth and elastic.

After the crust dough is prepared, form into a circle onto a greased baking sheet. Spread about 1 to 2 tablespoons of pesto onto the dough. It should have just a thin layer covering the dough. Then spread about 1/2 cup of already prepared Alfredo sauce. We just use the store bought bottle, and it takes great! Then top with cooked and cubed or shredded chicken. ( I boil my chicken, already cut up, because it cooks faster, for about 15 minutes.) Then add chopped spinach. Spread mozzarella cheese on the top. We like cheese so we add a good helping, about 1 cup to 1 1/2. Cook at 350 for about 12 to 15 minutes. ENJOY!

1 box Giant Shells
15 oz. Ricotta Cheese
1/2 Basil Pesto
1 cup Mozarrella
1 large egg
2 cups Spinach
1 jar Red Sauce 
Cook the shells via the box instructions. Mix the ricotta, pesto, mozarrella, egg and spinach. Stuff the shells until they open slightly. Pour about a cup of red sauce on the bottme of a baking dish. Then place stuff shells close together in a baking dish. Pour remaining sauce on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Or until the suace is bubbling. Enjoy!

2 Chicken Breasts (cooked and shredded)
1 cup Onions (chopped)
2 Garlic Cloves
1 tsp dried Oregano

1 (15oz) cans of Corn
2 (15 oz) cans Great Northern Beans
Green Chilies
2 (15 oz ) cans Chicken Broth
3 Tbsp Lime Juice
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro
Boil the chicken until it is white and cooked. Remove chicken from water and shred it. Then add all of the above ingredients to the chicken water. Once shredded, add chicken. Let simmer and heat up. Serve with fresh cilantro and crushed tortillas on top! Perfect for a cold night!
Pita Bread
Romaine Lettuce
Roma Tomato
Red Onion (half)
Cucumber (half)
1 Chicken Breast
Feta or Mozarrella Cheese
Greek Dressing: 3 Tbsp ed wine vinegar, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 cloves garlic, 1 lemon, 2 Tbsp oregano
Wash and cut lettuce into chunks. Add cut tomato, cucumber, and red onion. Marinate the chicken in half of the prepared Greek Dressing. Cut the chicken into chunks and cook with the dressing used to marinate. Toss the salad with the rest of the Greek Dressing. Top the salad with cooked chicken chunks. Heat pita half's in either the oven or toaster ( the toaster is fast and works great). Put the salad into the pita half and eat! You'll love the fresh, healthy flavors!!  

Taco Shells (18 tp 20)
2 lbs Hamburger
1 small Onion (diced)
1 can Refried Beans
1 can Green Chilies (drained)
1 can Tomato Sauce 
a little more than 1/2 package taco seasoning (to taste)
cheese (of your choice)

Brown hamburger until all pink is gone. Drain any excess grease. Add refried beans, tomato sauce, green chilies and taco seasoning. Mix well and cook until it is heated through. Fill the taco shells with about 2 large scoops of mixture. Place into a baking dish, lined so they are standing up. Sprinkle cheese on top of the mixture. Place in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. After cool, top with your favorite taco toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, etc.) and Enjoy! 

1 Chicken Breast (cut in half so you get two thin pieces)
BBQ Sauce
Pepper Jack Cheese

Place the chicken on a lightly greased cookie sheet into a 350 degree oven.Smother the chicken with your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook for about 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked. Separately cook the bacon. 
( You will be able to fit about two to three pieces of bacon per piece of chicken.) Once the chicken and bacon are both fully cooked, place the bacon pieces on top of the chicken. Pour more BBQ sauce on top of bacon. Then top with a slice of pepper jack cheese . Place back in the oven until the cheese is melted. Then its ready to eat! This dish is delish, super fast and easy!
