Parmesan Crusted Chicken (lightened up)

Parmesan crusted chicken is a favorite of ours. However, it's full of mayo which is not good for you. So, I've lightened it up! This definitely has a different taste but is yummy in it's own way!

3-4 chicken breasts
2/3 cup of plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup of parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon of black pepper
3/4 teaspoon of season salt
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

Preheat over to 425. Trim your chicken breasts and use a meat mallet to make them uniform in thickness (about 1/2 an inch). Please in a 9x13 dish). Mix up the other ingredients. Spread evenly over chicken. Cook for 25 minutes.

If you are needing to make more chicken, it is very easy to bump up to 1 cup Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup of parmesan. Just sprinkle a little more of each seasoning to compensate.

Cheeseburger Soup

I found this recipe online, bought everything to make it, then went back for the recipe and the blog is gone! So, I winged it. It is pretty darn good! Just like  a burger without the bun, and all warm and comforting,  perfect for that "burger fix" in winter!

1 pound hamburger
1/2 of an onion, chopped
3 cuos beef broth
4 tablespoons of tomato paste
1.5 tablespoons of yellow mustard
3 tablespoons of worschteshire
8 Oz of velveeta, diced
1/2 a head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
3/4 cup  (give or take ) of cherry tomatoes, halved
Bacon, nice and crispy and crumbled
1/4 cup of pickle slices, chopped

Brown hamburger with onion, drain and set aside. In a large pot, mix broth, tomato paste,  mustard, worschteshire,and Velveeta. Hest over medium until cheese is melted and it is bubbling. Add lettuce and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly and add tomatoes,  pickles and bacon. Serve and enjoy!!!
