Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

IMG_20150822_161432Peel and dice two russet potatoes.

Add to large skillet which has been heated with two tablespoons of canola oil and one tablespoon of butter. Fry on medium heat until browned and cooked  (15 minutes or so), stirring often.

Slice up a one pound package of Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage and add to the skillet with the potatoes. Heat for approximately 10 minutes, until meat is hot.

Serve immediately.

 

 

 

More Italian Chicken!

tmp_23497-IMG_20150806_180655-1507886880Chicken is so versatile. I call this Italian chicken, but it’s basically CHICKEN, with any favorite spices plus a few regulars. One of my favorite spices is McCormick Roasted Garlic and Bell Pepper seasoning.

As you see in the picture above, I made chicken tenders from two chicken breasts. They were fried in extra virgin olive oil and butter. I added a splash of white wine and let the tenders get nice and brown.

The entire cast iron skillet went into a 350° preheated oven for 10 minutes. Carefully remove skillet, add diced potatoes and raise oven temperature to 450° so that everything SIZZLES.

Bake for 10 minutes, stir potatoes and rearrange chicken. Bake for 10 more minutes. Remove chicken, rest it for 5 minutes while potatoes finish roasting.

Serve hot. Enjoy!
