Not healthy, but so good!

I got to cook dinner again for my parents, and decided to make something completly different. Granted, I knew my mom wouldn’t eat it because it was a milk based sauce so I had to make something different for her, but my dad really loved it. Today was the first day that I didn’t make a desert to go along with dinner, but being as we had pasta, potatoes and a milk based sauce, it was ok. That, and I got Baskin Robbins with my mom later on in the day.

Creamy Ranch Chicken
6 slices bacon
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons ranch dry salad dressing mix
1 1/4 cups milk
3 cups dried medium noodles
1 tablespoon finely shredded Parmesan cheese

  1. Start your water for your pasta. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  2. Cut bacon into narrow strips. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels; discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings.
  3. In the same skillet, cook chicken in reserved drippings until no longer pink, turning to brown evenly.  Sprinkle flour and salad dressing mix over chicken; stir well to coat the chicken.  Stir in milk.  Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir 1 minute more.  Stir in bacon.
  4. Serve the chicken over the noodles.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Parmasean Roasted Potatoes
1 1/2 lbs. new potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1-inch chunks
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. salt (kosher or sea is best)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 cup grated parmesan
8 sprigs fresh thyme (or 1 tsp. dried)

1.  Heat oven to 400 degrees (F).

2.  In a medium bowl, stir together all the ingredients, transfer to a roasting pan or 13×9″ baking dish.

3.  Roast, stirring/flipping once, until golden brown and crisp, about 50 minutes. Serve hot
