Fun Monday

Mariposa is hosting this week.

Our task is as follows:
(1) Please share to us how the NAME of your BLOG was made? I can't wait to hear interesting funny stories!

(2) Please share to us (in words or photo, though a combination of both will be a bonus!) your favorite/ most common dish!

1. I named my blog Heather's Recipes for very boring reasons. My husband had been blogging for several years, and I decided I wanted to give it a try. I thought that I'd post a recipe weekly, and other musings as I saw them. I figured the recipe would help me post regularly. It did at first, but then I just posted recipes very sporadically. ANYWAYS, I picked The title for my blog because Heather is my first name and I like to share recipes!

2. I do not have a picture of my best dish, but will share the recipe with you. I had a hard time picking, so I asked my husband, and he mentioned my Golden Delicious Apple Tart, my Sweet Potato Casserole, and my Country Chicken Kiev. I was thinking about my Baked Ziti, but in the end I realized that the Country Chicken Kiev is probably one of my best dishes, one I'm proud to serve to company and make for special occasions.

So, here's my recipe:

Country Chicken Kiev

2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. salt
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup cooking wine
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tsp. dried parsley)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt butter. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, garlic salt and salt. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumb mixture to coat. Place in ungreased 13 in. x 9 in. pan. Add wine, green onions and parsley to remaining butter. Pour over chicken. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.


Hope you enjoy it!

I am going to make a copy of this recipe and make it. I am always looking for new chicken recipes. You have a beautiful smile and face! :D And well defined arms, I might add!!!! hee hee

Well Heather this recipe sounds wonderful but I understand how it gets hard to post a lot of recipes. I like to throw them in here and there. It helps if you are accountable to a recipe meme or something like that. You asked what was in the Kensington Dream drink on my blog (it's a hefty one)
Amaretto, brandy, creme de cassis, juice of half a lemon, (shaken with ice) pour into wine goblet and top it off with champagne. They don't call it a dream for nothing cuz you'll soon be dreamin after you drink it! :)

Ellen,

Thanks for sharing the drink recipe. sounds heavenly!

Junebug,
I know what you mean about the men noticing different things, but I'm glad it's that way. It keeps me balanced.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Mmmmm, all this food is making me hungry. My hubby would love it if I was known for my cooking, but I am definitely not. Ah well. :D

Cynthia said...

This looks so yummy. My daughter Ella loves anything chicken. I will have to make it for her.

ChrisB said...

I too like the sound of your recipe I have never thought of making Kiev but I have already saved your recipe to give it a try so thank you!

JennV said...

Heather, thanks for stopping by my site! I love recipes too and that Chicken Kiev sounds super yummy! Now, where can I find that Leek soup recipe??

Carrie Sue said...

That recipe looks really great! I'll have to try.

Hootin' Anni said...

It's simple it's to the point...and that is what you titled it so it makes it all the more personal if you ask me.

jennifer said...

Recipe sounds good but I may have to have it at your house since I don't cook! And your title isn't boring, just straight to the point! Jennifer

Faye said...

What a great chicken recipe--worth the effort it probably takes. Your idea of using a regular recipe post is a good thing. Sometimes you just run out of something to say and the recipe is at least a starting point that can be expanded into a full post.

Celeste said...

I wonder how that would work with tofu.....

Loved the post below about the difference between men and women. So true.

Mariposa said...

Michelle said...

Sounds yummy. I'm gonna have to try it now!!

lisa marie said...

I love anything chicken! That sounds good. And my naming is kinda self-explanatory too. Happy Fun Monday!

Sandy said...

That sounds so wonderful!

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

Yummy, that sounds good. I think if you have something to share, blogging is great. You share recipes. I'm not quite sure what I share yet... still figuring that one out.

Pamela said...

I'm soooo copying down that recipe.

Alison said...

Oh, Heather that chicken sounds wonderful...I will have to try it this week!!! thanks for the recipe!

JennV said...

Thanks for the Leek Soup Recipe! I can't wait to try it!
Have a Great Week!

Irish Coffeehouse said...

Hmm... maybe I'll have to scout out your archives one day for some new recipes!

And your chicken recipe sounds awesome. It sounds somewhat similiar to Chicken Parmesean.

Thanks for sharing!
