I've baked chicken from frozen quite a few times. Just rub on some olive oil and sprinkle some seasonings on and bake a little longer.

I'm having an experiment for dinner tonight, I'll report back if it's edible. If not, you won't be hearing from me because I don't have a backup plan.

You can do that?! I've never tried it, but next time I make some baked chicken I will test it out. Thanks!

For us, a big pot-o-chili. Hopefully it will last a few days so I don't have to cook again until the weekend.

Can and should are two different things. You want meat to sit out at room temperature for a little bit for best results.

Alright, I ended up thawing some frozen pesto sauce and put that on spaghetti noodles and threw in some chopped up tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Broccolini on the side.

Spring, if you guys are pesto fans, you really need to try this stuff. It's my favorite store-bought pesto, heavy on the garlic and so delicious. And it's locally made so you can only get it at a handful of places. Art Ibleto - The Pasta King

Thanks for the suggestion! DH doesn't like parmesan, but we've made great strides in what he will eat now vs. what he wouldn't dare touch before so it's worth a try. I'll look for it next time we're at Whole Foods since it says the one in Santa Rosa carries it.

We had chicken tenders in this marinade cooked on the grill, yellow rice (I used basmati) and sweet corn.

Southwest chicken salad. It's something for which I can prepare all the parts and people can eat what they want as they come and go.

I don't really like pasta very much, so I may not eat it...but instead grab a frozen chicken burrito that I made yesterday.

I'm not much of a pasta eater either (unless it's pesto). Do people look at you like you're crazy when you say that? I get that all the time.

We are having chicken fajitas tonight...a huge favorite in our house!

Making a huge meal for the DH's family and friends (10people!) Roasted cream of tomato soup, lobster risotto, and individual stuffed Cornish hens w/ roasted mushrooms and brussel sprouts. I made vanilla custard and almond macaroons for dessert. Hopefully these chocolate bowls don't crack when I pop the balloons (fingers crossed)
I've been cooking since 7am hopefully this dinner party goes well.

Jaynee, that's cause you are crazy.

(Totally joking, I can't stand when someone thinks someone is crazy for simply not liking a particular thing. We all have different taste buds, people!)

BrettyU, I failed to get my invitation so what time should I be there?

I have a perfectly ripe tomato that if not eaten today may meet a terrible fate. So we're having BLASTT's again (yay! ) with chips that are YTBD since I'm going to Target today and I'll pick some up.

Yes! I like tortellini, or ravioli, but I'm just not a huge plain pasta fan, no matter the shape. I sometimes eat barley with tomato sauce with veggies in it - it has more bite to it. It doesn't matter the sauce - it's the pasta for me, although I do like teeny pasta (orzo, ditalini, the mini varieties) in my soup sometimes.

Normally I do defrost first, but sometimes you're short on time but still need to eat.. maybe I'll try it out over this long weekend. If it sucks, oh well.. I can give the chicken to the dogs. But if it works out I may do it again on occasion.
