Chicken Stroganoff


Tonight I decided to make one  of my quick dinner recipes, Chicken Stroganoff.  It is so easy but yet so tasty. I make this for two but you could double or triple the recipe for more.

Here is what you will need to create this dish.

  • one chicken breast
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 4 to 5 cremini mushrooms
  • one garlic clove
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups of chicken stock
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp of All Season Salt
  • Salt and pepper
  • wide noodles

So lets get this going. You will be so excited on the taste but you even love that it is low in calories too.

I prepare the chicken buy cutting the chicken in to bite size pieces and then saute them in the olive oil.

While the chicken is cooking I slice the mushrooms and dice the garlic clove.

When chicken is cooked through add the mushrooms and cook them until softened. Add Garlic and let it saute for a few minutes.

While this is sauteing cook your noodles per directions on package. I use whole wheat noodles because of the calories but you can use whatever is your favorite.

Then add the chicken stock to pan and bring to a boil.

While this is coming up to a boil, cut the 4 oz’s of cream cheese into even pieces.

Add this to the chicken stock when it boils.  I know it will look like it is not melting together but keep stirring it until the cheese has melted completely. Turn down to low and let it thicken. I add a tsp of All Season Salt because it just gives this dish a great flavor.

Your sauce should look like this.

Drain and the butter to the noodles. Top the noodles with the sauce and you then have created Chicken Stroganoff. You will not be disappointed.  I figured the calories and it is about 375 calories a serving and so tasty.

I hope you try it. You can always add more veggies too. Green beans would be good and would not add that many calories.

Meatloaf and My Version of a Loaded Baked Potato.


Bare with me as I muddle through my first food blog entry. Tonight I made meatloaf and a my new version of a Loaded Baked Potato.

First the meatloaf.

You will need a cup of chopped onions, one carrot chopped fine, two cremini mushrooms chopped and two garlic gloves chopped. I forgot green onions chopped too.

Saute all these in a saute pan until all are soften and cooked through.

I use both hamburger and sausage in my meat loaf a pound of each.

Mix them both together but don’t over mix them otherwise your meatloaf will be tough.

After I mixed the meats together I added some havarti with dill cheese chunks to the meat mixture. Then I topped the meat with the cooked veggies after they cooled down.

Then I added one egg and about a cup of Panko crumbs. I know I just throw it in but if I had to guess it was a cup.

After you mix in the eggs and the bread crumbs throw it in a bread pan and put in in a preheated oven at 375 degree oven for around an hour. I always check it to make sure it is completely done in the middle before pulling out. Depends on your pan it might take longer.

On to my new version of Loaded Baked Potato.

So I cleaned two Russet potatoes. Sliced them but not all the way through.

Added butter in between each slice. Then top with sliced green onions. Cover and put in the oven with the meatloaf.

When they come out of the oven add cheese between the slices you made in the potato and then put bake in the oven until the cheese melts. Then I put sour cream and bacon and green onions on top. Delish.

Here is my finished dinner. Jon loved it but then again he was away and had to eat out every night this week. So he might be just craving home cook dinners anyway.

So thanks for bearing with me on my first blog. It will be a lot of fun. I can tell.

Enjoy.

Starting my adventure in blogging.


Well let’s start this off with an introduction. I am Amy and I love to cook. I was told awhile ago that I should start a food blog. Well after much thought here it is…my food blog. So I decided to name it Sassy and Savory. Sassy because one of the definitions of Sassy is lively, bold, and full of spirit. I think or would hope that Sassy in that definition describes me. Savory because two of the definitions for Savory is piquantly pleasant to the mind and pleasing to the sense of taste especially by reason of effective seasoning. This is what I love about cooking with simple seasonings, herbs and techniques you can change your whole cooking experience. Not to say I haven’t ever failed at my attempts to add Savory to dishes but when you get it right you are so in for a treat.
