Life has been so busy, I haven't had a chance to post my menu plans for the past two weeks. Well I'm back with a couple of new recipes. One recipe I have made once and it was soooo delicious, that's the Bruschetta Chicken bake. My husband, John said it was the best meal I ever made. I was raving about it to my family and my sister made it for a dinner party she had with her BFF Jacqui and they LOVED it too. I even think my Gram is going to try this recipe too. Hope you like it Gram!!! I will post the new recipes at the end of this post.

Combine the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over chicken. Loosely cover baking dish with foil. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until top is browned.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over the chicken. Return to the oven for 3-5 minutes or until tomato mixture is heated through. Yield: 4 servings.

Lemon Garlic Chicken recipe.
I haven't tried this yet, but it got great reviews on recipezaar.com
Remove excess skin and fat from chicken, rinse and pat dry.
In a small bowl combine oregano, seasoned salt and pepper, rub mixture onto chicken using all of the mixture.
In a large skillet over medium heat brown chicken in the butter.
Transfer chicken to slow cooker.
To the skillet add the water, lemon juice, garlic and chicken bouillon.
Stirring over medium heat bring mixture to a boil, loosening browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
Pour over Chicken, cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on low for 5 to 6 hours until chicken is almost tender.
Add parsley Cover and cook on high for 15-30 minutes more!
combine everything in bowl, then place in freezer bag. leave cheese out, place in smaller bag. heat skillet to med-high and saute with 2 T water for about 8-10 min until all is bright tender. transfer to platter, sprinkle with cheese if desired.
roast on baking sheet 475 until browned, about 10-15 min., then add cheese if desired.
I always roast them in the oven. They are so delish!!!
This is the second week I am trying this new format for the weekly meal planning. In previous weeks, I would specifically decide what meal we eat when. This time I am trying to be a little more spontaneous. But I still don't know if I like it. I was so used to the other way, but I thought I would try it again this week. Who knows, maybe I will end up liking doing it this way.
