So without further ado, here's what I remade and enjoyed in November.
Skinny Greek Yogurt Chicken is one of my favorite recipes. The topping is great and so flavorful, plus it's easy to make. I have made it ahead of time (like the night before) and just tossed it in the oven when needed. This time I made it with thin chicken because it was all I had and it worked better than I expected. It's definitely better with thicker chicken but the thin was good. John, who is not a yogurt guy, said "What kind of cheese is this? It's so good!" The topping can really trick even the most reluctant eaters.
Chicken pesto pasta bake is a great recipe for using up rotisserie chicken. I buy a rotisserie breast 1-2 times a month so I am always looking for ways to use it. This is such a family pleaser in our house so we were all happy to have it again.
BBQ chicken pizza is probably the pizza I make most frequently. I love it! I love the combo of flavors and I always have the ingredients on hand. Such a family pleasing meal around here!
Tortellini soup is one of Landon's favorite foods. I make it slightly different for him (I use frozen chopped spinach and instead of red peppers I throw in peas/carrots) but it's the same base recipe. He eats so much of this and it's great because I get a ton of veggies in him this way. Luckily he's still at that age where he eats everything- we haven't entered the picky toddler years yet.
Revolutionary macaroni and cheese is another of Landon's favorite meals. A few months ago we were really struggling with Landon's eating. When he started daycare and I returned to work he refused to take a bottle/cup. He was used to nursing and was not willing to take a bottle. Everyone told me to give it time, he would take it. Well, he never did. Three months later he is just starting to drink water from a sippy. He also went on a strike at daycare and refused to eat there too. So he was going all day with no liquids or no food. Now he's a whole new little man and eats a LOT of food. To the point where we sometimes have to say, "That's enough Landon." This macaroni and cheese is one of all his all time favorites and I love it because it cooks in the milk. I don't bake it when I make it for Landon and I add peas and carrots.
Pizza Italiano is a great recipe. The pesto and oil make the chicken amazing. The cheese is light and spread evenly over the pizza so it's not a heavy meal. We loved this as much the second time around as we liked it the first time.
...Corn casserole- this is hands down my family's favorite side. I make it for Thanksgiving and Easter and it is the most popular thing I make.
...stuffing- This is the only stuffing recipe I use. This year I used half regular bread cubes and half cornbread cubes because the store was out of just regular bread cubes and it was still really good. I also never use the fresh parsley anymore. I just throw in some dried and call it a day.
...Spinach dip is another part of the meal that my family expects. I've been making this version since 2008 and rarely make another variety. And when I do I typically regret it and wish I made this one. I have changed it over the years- I use 16 ounces of sour cream and about 1/3 cup of mayo. I don't love mayo so I prefer it this way.
...Brownie bottom delights were excellent for dessert. I could eat these daily.
I can't wait to see what I remake in December! I forse many cookies in my future...
