Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

Most days the last thing many of you want to do is worry about dinner, or worry about how you can get dinner on the table quickly. Thin cut meat is the answer to those who are short on time. They cook in virtually minutes no matter the application.

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

Having a crispy coating on meat or fish is a must in my book. To get that crispy exterior usually means a dipping station…..flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Who has time for all that, and the mess….ugh!

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

On a whim, I tried spreading mustard on some thin cut chops and then dipped them in seasoned panko breadcrumbs. They fried up perfectly. And in record time. It took all of 6 minutes. The side dishes took longer!

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

The beauty of this dish is it can be used on chicken or fish also. Be sure to use very thin cut meats or the panko will burn before the meat is done.

Quick Crispy Dijon Prok Chops are your new go-to dinner when you are short on time, but still, want a scrumptious meal that your whole family will love.

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

We first posted this burger back in 2014. Apparently Spring was not anywhere to be seen in 2014 either…..after last nights snow…yes, I said snow and hopefully this is the last of it. Winter has stuck around wayyyy too long this year.

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger was originally called Apple Bacon Chicken Burger, but I discovered it’s a no no to use the same post title twice??

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

Making this burger again was not a no no, it was a great idea! 

I said it a million…slight exaggeration …times, but I love ground chicken for a burger in place of turkey. For me, it has a better flavor, but if you are a lover of the turkey, please substitute it in this recipe.

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

As anyone who has used ground chicken (or turkey) knows it can be a little dry, but in the case of this burger, the add-ins make it nice and juicy. One other tip, I know its poultry and you do need to cook it through, but do not over cook it. If you do, no matter what you have added, it will be dry. A little bit of bacon, onion, sage and maple syrup add a nice flavor to the burger and a topping of Maple Dijon sauce and grilled granny smith apples and wow!!!

Since we revisted this recipe we decided to revisit the pictures too! Funny when you start a blog you think your pictures are really good, then later you look back and …YIKES!!! It’s an understatement to say we have improved. 

Bacon Apple Chicken Burger

So, brush off the snow, drag out the grill and try Bacon Apple Chicken Burger. If the snow won’t stop where you are, cook them inside until summer shows up!!

Dijon Carrot Salad

Dijon Carrot Salad

We all know about traditional carrot salad…….mayo based,with *gag* raisins…….I know I should not bash food, but I really dislike raisins!

I don’t know if it’s a texture thing, or if it’s the actual taste…….or the fact that they can disguise themselves as chocolate chips……..then bam…..it’s a raisin. Very disappointing when your mouth is set for sweet chocolate…… Continue reading “Dijon Carrot Salad”
