I'm not too consistent on the labeling! Best use the search box.

http://mostlypaleo.blogspot.com/200...at-chicken.html

See, not even in the title, what a dunce, I am!

I'm pretty sure you can use chicken pieces for it, don't need to butterfly your chicken. It's just so pretty when you butterfly a chicken and it comes out all roasty brown.

I've never cooked a game hen, I'll have to try that someday. I bet it's easy to flatten though, bones would be easier to cut through.

Eh, looks like they moved the mustard crusted chicken recipe, I'll fix that link.

I just think of a cornish game hen as a small whole chiken that cooks up in half the time and even quicker when you flatten it. Plus, they're cheap and a nice alternative to chicken. I can eat a whole one easily.

Oh good, so you already know how to flatten it. The mustard crust whips up really quickly. Might want to cut that recipe in half though. I haven't ever let it marinade long, that might be really good too. I just slather it on and start cooking it. If you're missing an ingredient or two, you'll probably be fine. I didn't have the herbs for a long time.

Whoever it was who mentioned olive paste....

I made my standard spinach quiche but added 2 TBS of kalamata olive paste spread over the spinach.

Think yummy cheesey melted emmenthaler cheese, spinach, the briney-ness of the olive paste and the creaminess of the quiche filling. With a sprinkleing of smoked hungarian paprika.

Thanks for the idea!

that looks REALLY GOOD! For dinner I'm going to saute a couple roma tomatoes and garlic in some olive oil. Then I'm going to bake some scallops (they're huge--the size of small burgers!) with prosciutto on top and covered with muenster cheese and serve it on top of the tomatoes.

No, I'm definitely not tired of low carb. There's so much you can do with it!

For that same reason I can't stand tuna. Years ago, WW reguired you to eat fish 5xweek. Tuna was the easiest way. I had Tuna balls, BBQ tuna, deviled tuna, tuna salad and on and on. Can't stand the sight of it!

I'm having slow-cooker pork chops with a dried berry bbq-ish sauce (definitely not induction-friendly!), mashed cauliflower & salad for sides.
ETA - Something to look forward to as you climb the OWL ladder!

I like to make huge bowls of different salads (whatever I may crave that week) Tuna, chicken, egg or shrimp. I then use it all week for other stuff. wrapped in romaine leaves is my favorite for lunch and after dinner snack if I get the munchies, I have heated up chicken salad and eaten in warm, (egg salad too). Maybe wrap in a low carb tortilla if I get the real carb cravings but that doesn't happen much. Dinner is anything I toss in the crock pot.

Well....I just tried to make a de-contructed ravioli stuffed with ricotta and pesto. Used roasted zuchinni as the pasta. Good in concept but I have to work on it a bit. I think thicker slices of zuchinni. It tasted good but I def have to work on the visual.


So...my dinner was pan-seared halibut with ricotta and pesto deconstructed ravioli. For dessert, lemon cheesecake mousse. I ate dessert so the wine was out. Can't have both, have to choose and I chose dessert toningt.

Progress not perfection.
