Lemon pepper garlic roasted chicken & then some

It’s been a while and I have quite missed the cooking. Today, my first weekend off from work, I decided I would make dinner for the family. Tonight’s menu:


Lemon Pepper Garlic Roasted Chicken:

  • 5 pre-cut chicken thighs (you could use chicken breast too, but this is what I had)
  • 5 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
  • pinch of garlic salt and pepper for each piece
  • 1 head diced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

-Preheat oven to 375. Wash each piece of chicken and pat dry. Brush a thin layer of olive oil on each piece of chicken. Season each piece with the lemon pepper seasoning, salt and pepper on both sides of chicken. Place about a quarter tsp. of the diced garlic between the skin and the meat of the chicken. Place chicken pieces in a 13×9 baking pan. Top chicken with a light drizzle of olive oil and the remaining diced garlic you may have. Cook for 1 hour and then set the oven to broil on high for about 2 minutes.

Garlic & Parmesan Cheese Mashed Potatoes: (not for the health conscious…what? i’m southern. haha.)

  • 4 large red creamer potatoes (this will happily feed 5 kind of hungry people)
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp. miracle whip
  • 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

-Boil potatoes on high heat until soft enough that a fork easily goes through it. Mash potatoes in a bowl with a fork. Add the butter gradually, while mixing. In a seperate bowl, add the miracle whip, mayonnaise, and garlic paste and then stir together. Add mixed ingredients into potatoes and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add grated parmesan to potatoes and stir again until well added.


Sauteed Green Beans: (ah yes, something green!!)

  • 1 bag frozen green beans
  • 1/4 cup fried onions (you can buy these at the store. they’re used alot for casseroles, from what i was told)
  • 2 cloves diced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

-Set stove to high heat and add olive oil to sautee pan. Once hot, add green beans and sautee. Then add fried onions and the diced garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.


Once my auditors go, once busy season is over, and once I move, I will be back into the swing of things and hopefully kick out as much yummy stuff as Lina has! ^___^
