What’s Cooking – Honey

I’m just not a food blogger.  I forgot the picture again!

This week I made One Pan Chicken and Potatoes from the Tasty Kitchen website — with a few changes.  I’m getting where I cook like I quilt — can’t do anything according to the directions 🙂


  • 1/2 cup oil  – I used canola since that’s what I had
  • 1/4 c Balsamic vinegar – I used Regina Balsamic Vinegar since it was in the cabinet
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard (is that the same as the spicy brown mustard I used?)
  • 2 teaspoons Honey (no one said how much honey qualified for a honey recipe)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic  (I guess that’s about 3 cloves minced)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons Tony Chachere’s Creaole Seasoning (the recipe called for Italian Seasoning — but this is what I use on pizza, so I figured it would work)
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika – mine wasn’t smoked
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (got mine from a green can)
  • 4 good sized red potatoes
  • 5 frozen chicken tenders

Preheat the over to 425 degrees F.  Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and place into a gallon zip top bag with the frozen chicken tenders.  Mix everything else in a blender until smooth. Pour into the bag. Close and mix until everything is coated evenly.  Pour out into baking dish, putting the tenders on top of the potatoes.   Place dish into preheated oven for about an hour.  Turn the tenders every 20 minutes.  Roast until the potatoes are tender and the juices in the chicken run clear.

The recipe indicated basting would be required, but the ‘vinaigrette’ was rather thick, so I found I didn’t need to do anything, but did flip the chicken.

I’m a simple cook — 2 or 3 ingredients, so it is surprising that I was able to make this from mostly from my pantry.  I  had to get  garlic and potatoes.  The best news, is that both my husband and  I enjoyed the meal.  I won’t make it next week, but it will be put in the rotation — perhaps w/a bit less garlic.
