I’m trying to clear out my cupboard so I don’t have to move (or throw away) a bunch of food when I move to Los Angeles at the end of July. This goal has led me to experiment with ingredients. Last night, I created a concoction I call “Chicken Peach Cobbler”:

3 chicken thighs
1 can of peaches in light syrup
3/4 cup frozen veggie mix (I used Trader Joe’s Vegetable Melange)
1 1/2 cup pancake mix
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
1 egg
3 tbsp butter, melted
grated cheese (for garnish)

I trimmed the fat off the chicken and placed it in a greased cake pan. Then I drained as much of the syrup off the peaches as I could and tossed them on top of the chicken. Then I put the veggies on top of that.

In a bowl, I mixed the pancake mix, soy milk, egg and melted butter together until all the mix was moist. And then I spread that on top of the chicken. Then I put some grated cheese on top of that.

I baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then dropped the temp to 350 and baked for another 10 minutes.

Because the chicken was still a little frozen, I ended up having to bake another good 20 minutes at 300 to 350 degrees.

I liked it. Rich thought it was “interesting.”

What would I do differently?

I would cook the chicken before putting it in the cake pan so that it doesn’t require such a long baking time. I’d probably cook it in some the peach syrup from the can, because baking the chicken with the peaches gave it a nice peachy quality.

I think I’d also add some more veggies … maybe 1 cup or 1-1/4 cups.

I think its the carpet …

Today, despite feeling better, I tanked again on the Body Test. I think its because I’m now using the balance board on carpet instead of tile. Erg.

Yesterday I really enjoyed my meals. We had gone grocery shopping on Friday and I had purchased some butter lettuce and strawberries. So, I had strawberries on my cereal for breakfast. Yum! And then with dinner I did something daring … I put strawberries in my salad. Double Yum! You might want to try it:
