RECIPES FOR THE WEEK

TERIYIAKI PINEAPPLE CHICKEN SANDWICHES ON HAWAIAN ROLLS – You can buy teriyaki sauce (I like Kikkoman baste and glaze) or you can make your own – it’s really simple!Heat some water, brown sugar, soy sauce, honey, garlic powder, onion powder and ginger and cook until sugar is all dissolved.Add a mixture of cornstarch/water to thicken.(I do everything to taste, but love adding more ginger and garlic).Once you have your sauce pound out your chicken breast and marinade a day in your teriyaki sauce.Grill the chicken, once cooked through I put on a slice of ham, a slice of pineapple and then melt your cheese on top (I like pepper jack and the kids stick with American). Serve on a Hawaiian bun or on a pretzel roll!Serve up with a veg – my kids like baby carrots and cucumbers.

MEDITERRANEAN PASTA OR MEDITERRANEAN ZOODLES – If you are using zucchini as your noodles I usually spiral zucchinis with my Veggetti Pro.(If you are using pasta you could use whole wheat thin spaghetti. Boil until al dente and set aside) Cook up your zucchini noodles and spinach in some butter, garlic, salt and pepper and then drain extra water. In your pan now add in sun-dried tomatoes, capers, parsley, artichoke hearts and Kalamata olives. Squeeze in a little lemon and add some red pepper flakes and top with parmesan cheese or feta!(If you want to add a protein I recommend shrimp J )

EGG ROLL BOWLS – Make your favorite egg roll but a low carb healthier version!Heat up some garlic and ginger and add ground pork and when finished cooking set aside.In the same pan, add some sesame oil, sliced onion, and your bag of cole slaw, when it starts to get tender add your cooked pork, soy sauce and sriracha.Cook for probably 5 minutes or so until cabbage is tender (I still like it a little crisp).Top with some sliced green onions!

MY LAST YEARS WINNING GRANITE CHEF DISH JALAPENO POPPER BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN –Remember I am not the best at measuring, so just make things to taste! Ingredients: Homemade BBQ SAUCE – make and set aside. Once the meat is on the grill you will continue to coat the chicken in this sauce. Ketchup, Brown Sugar, Apple Cider Vinegar, Molasses, Honey Mustard, Honey, Raspberry (seedless) preserves, Paprika, Chili Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Ground Mustard.Mix all these up for the taste you want – sweeter add more brown sugar and preserves. If you want more heat add more cayenne pepper and chili powder.

Ingredients for your stuffed chicken: Bacon, Chicken breasts, Cream Cheese, Shredded Cheddar/Mozzarella Cheese, Precooked bacon, Jalapenos, Onion powder, Garlic Powder, Salt/Pepper

Turn on your grill on the highest heat. Slice your chicken (not all the way through) and pound it thin. Set aside.Slice the top off of the jalapeno and then slice down the middle and spoon out the seeds.In a bowl mix cream cheese, some cheddar/mozzarella shredded cheese, chopped up precooked bacon, onion powder, garlic powder.Put cheese mixture into each half of jalapeno and put the jalapeno back together.Season your chicken with salt and pepper, put jalapeno in the chicken breast and roll the chicken around, then take your bacon and wrap it around the chicken (toothpick together to hold if you need to).Turn off one side of your grill and place the chicken on the other side.You don’t want to cook on the direct heat or your bacon will flare up.Close the grill and don’t open again for 15-20 minutes. Once you do open, flip the chicken and the bacon side that is now up, and brush on your BBQ sauce. Shut the grill again and cook again for 15-20 minutes, flip and coat with more BBQ sauce. Slow cooking the chicken keeps it moist. We cooked ours for just about an hour.If you don’t pound out your chicken to make it thinner then it will take longer.Once the chicken is done and the bacon is crispy you can serve with extra bbq sauce.

NEXT WEEKEND IS A LONG WEEKEND! TONS OF GRILLING! STEAK TIPS, STUFFED CHEESEBURGERS, DOGS, SAUSAGE! ENJOY YOUR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
