What's for Dinner? Week 5

Not nearly as busy of a week, thank goodness!  I roasted two chickens yesterday and we had one for dinner and will use the other for some basic chicken and bean burritos served with the yummy Cilantro Lime Rice like Chipotle has at their restaurant.  

Monday:  Chicken Burritos, Cilantro Lime Rice (Chipotle style) Green Salad

Natalia has said that she could eat pork chops and applesauce every day.  I'm thinking that we'd get pretty sick of it, though.

Tuesday:  Pork Chops and Applesauce, 3 Bean Salad, Bread

Wednesday:  Chicken Paprikash with Noodles and mixed veggies

Kelly's Chicken Paprika  This is a recipe I've used many times but instead of in a big pot I put it in the crockpot, except for the sour cream and noodles, let it cook all day, remove the chicken and add the sour cream, then cook the noodles and serve.  Recipe is from

  • 1 whole chicken Cut into pieces
  • 2 medium sized onions, chopped
  • 1 16 ounce can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 pound of medium Egg Noodles
In large pot over medium heat, heat oil and onions until onions are clear, add paprika and stir. Add chicken pieces and brown. Add can of tomatoes (whole can, juice and all), green pepper and spices. Reduce heat and simmer for one hour to hour and half until chicken is done. Pull chicken pieces out and let cool until you can take the bones out. (Yes you need to cook it with the bones because of the flavor that it adds to the gravy). While the chicken pieces are out add the sour cream and stir well. Add the chicken pieces back in and simmer. While Chicken is simmering, boil water and cook Egg Noodles according to package directions. Serves chicken over noodles. Makes a great meal with a loaf of french bread and a green salad.

Thursday:  Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork, German Potato Salad, Green Salad

Friday:  Homemade Pizza and veggie sticks

Treat This Week:
Un-fried Fried Ice Cream

I heard they use coke (or pepsi?) for Cafe Rio pork -- is this Dr. Pepper version similar to that?
