Friday Feasts #6: Parmesan Crusted Tilapia July 22, 2016

I think it’s only appropriate that today’s Friday Feast post involves seafood while I’m at the beach. Today’s recipe is from HelloFresh and can be found here.

This was another family pleaser, excluding Bug. She’s still inĀ  her picky stage. I was extremely pleased that I was able to convince Punk to give the tilapia a try. I was the only one who enjoyed the carrots in this recipe. Hubs isn’t a fan of cooked carrots. This was an easy and quick recipe to fix.

Tilapia is a wonderful mild fish. I am not a big seafood fan, but I love tilapia. I really thought I had more pictures from my preparation to show the steps in my post.

Friday Feasts #4: Pan-Roasted Chicken with Dijon Mushroom Sauce and Brown Rice July 8, 2016

This week’s Friday Feasts post is another HelloFresh recipe, but not one that I did as a box. Hubby’s mom came to visit, so we decided against ordering a box that week. However, when I was pausing our subscription, I spotted this recipe. I had to make it. It looked scrumptious and it did NOT disappoint! Once again, this was a family pleaser! The full recipe can be found here.

(HelloFresh’s finished plating and my ingredients!)

Hubs & I love mushrooms, so I did more than called for! I’m enjoying using out herb garden for more than just homemade spaghetti sauce this year. I did have to buy some though since some of ours weren’t ready to start harvesting.

I cut the chicken breasts into smaller chunks so that they could cook a bit faster, and easier to manage once on the plate! The sauce smelled so amazing while it was cooking! I may have taste tested a tad more than necessary. Sheesh. I’m craving this now while I’m working on it! I did also add more garlic than is called for. As usual!

The chicken also smelled good before I let it cook in the sauce for a while. Picky Bug and Punk didn’t like the rice. They’re like their daddy and not a big rice fan. This would be super yummy over some egg noodles or maybe even spaghetti or linguine noodles too. Both kiddos gobbled down their chicken and asked for seconds! My mother-in-law also enjoyed this recipe.

What do you think of the Pan Roasted Chicken? Does it sound like a recipe you would try?
