5-4-2011 Quick and Easy Dinner

Tonight, I made Oven Schnitzel, Unfried French Fries, and Zesty Green Beans, all of which were quick and easy to make. Our dinner was delicious!

I also made up a really yummy horseradish ketchup dipping sauce.

Here are pictures and recipes:

Oven Schnitzel

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 C. bread crumbs with sesame seeds (found in the kosher section)
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the chicken breasts into a large ziploc with a few drops of water. Using a meat mallet pound chicken until it is thin and even thickness.

Crack the eggs into a bowl, and lightly beat.

Pour the bread crumbs onto a plate.

Dip the pounded chicken into the eggs, then the bread crumbs.

Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non stick spray.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned, turn chicken over, and bake another 10-15 minutes.


Unfried French Fries

Do you scrub your potatoes? If you don't definitely buy a potato scrubber and start. Once you see how much stuff comes off of it, you will never skip scrubbing potatoes again.

4 potatoes, scrubbed and cut into sticks
olive oil
Lawry's salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place the potato sticks on a baking sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Sprinkle with Lawry's salt.

Bake for 15 minutes. Toss the potatoes around, and bake another 10 minutes, until browned on all sides.


Zesty Green Beans

1 large bunch green beans or haricot verts, trimmed
1 T. salted margarine, such as Smart Balance or Earth Balance
1/2 t. Mrs. Dash original blend
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. salt, or to taste
1/4 t. pepper

In a small bowl mix together the Mrs. Dash, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Steam the green beans in a pot with a lid and an inch of water, to your liking. Pour out the water, and add the margarine to the pot. Toss the green beans with the margarine. Sprinkle on the spice mixtures.


Horseradish Ketchup Dipping Sauce

This sauce is similar to a cocktail sauce, except the horseradish with beets makes it a bit sweeter.

1/4 C. ketchup
1/4 C. horseradish with beets, preferably Meal Mart Brand

In a small bowl mix together the two ingredients.
