Roasted Potatoes

Roasted Potatoes

I hope your New Year started amazingly beautiful and continues to be that way throughout the year. Usually, I do a recap of the most popular posts, but I changed it. Instead, I am sharing roasted potatoes. Is there any better way to start the year?

I love potatoes. You can prepare them in so many ways and I don’t think there is one dish that I will not like. You already know that if I could dive into the bowl of mashed potatoes I certainly would, I am seriously not joking at all.

I serve these, usually with some leftover protein; either pork chops, chicken, ribs or in this case Xmas leftover Turkey. Boy… was this delicious! It totally makes a complete meal, with a salad on the side, bit of sauteed peas and freshly baked bread… Could the meal get any better? I don’t think so…

If you love potatoes as much as I do then you got to make them asap. These are very flavorful, easy and delicious.

  • 5 large Potatoes approximately the same size (about kg and a half to 2 kg)
  • Sea Salt to taste

  • Oil to grease the pan and drizzle over the potatoes before baking  (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into equal size wedges. If you are not going to bake them right away, soak in the cold water so they don't turn dark.
  2. Season the potatoes with seasoning/herbs above. You can add to please your own taste. I added a little more than 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt.
  3. Grease the baking pan and place potatoes in the single layer. Drizzle a bit of oil all over the potatoes.
  4. Preheat the oven at 400F (200C) and bake the potatoes for about 40-45 minutes or until they are crunchy, golden brown and soft/tender on the inside.

Also, from time to time I would add eggs and sometimes I would skip including them.

The best part of this kind of salad is that you can use any chicken breast, although I would totally recommend rotisserie chicken.

Most of the time we do have leftovers after getting a large rotisserie chicken from the store and this is what we make.

It is just such a delicious and easy way to make lunch or even dinner.

My husband and I devoured this tray of lettuce wraps. I did not even miss bread or additional carbs.

That being said, I will probably slice some tomatoes and avocado the next time I serve these.

Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

This salad reminds me greatly of my Russian Olivier Salad, except that I did not add smoked ham and boiled potatoes.

Oh, I can’t even tell you how much I love that salad that’s why I created this one. Something similar, but still somewhat different.

Please do check out my delicious and extremely easy Russian Olivier Salad because I have a feeling that you guys will love it.

Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Easy and tasty lunch or fun appetizers. Sometimes you really do not need a whole lot to create an amazing meal. Just look at these tasty Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps. They look fire and taste even better.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2-2 cup pull apart rotisserie chicken breast
  • 4 large boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted (optional)
  • 2 kosher pickles, diced
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 Butterhead lettuce

Instructions

  1. Use any leftover chicken breast such as oven-roasted chicken or even boiled, however, my recommendation is rotisserie. Take the skin off and pull off chicken breast meat off. Shred and pull apart with two forks or with your hands. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Boil eggs, 6 minutes in the boiling water. Submerge eggs in cold water, break them a bit and leave for 5 minutes before peeling. Peel eggs and chop into small pieces. Add eggs to the mixing bowl.
  3. Add diced pickles, lemon juice, a dash of salt and pepper, then mix it by tossing it.
  4. Now, add mayo and mustard and mix it to coat everything very well. Keep salad in the fridge before serving.
  5. Wash and separate butter lettuce or any lettuce on hand and add about 2 tablespoons of the salad in the middle of the lettuce cup.
  6. I like garnishing it with a dash of black pepper and sweet paprika or red hot chili pepper flakes. This really depending on your personal preference.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

The salad could be refrigerated and in airt tight container for up to 3 days. That is for the best taste.

If you do not like peas, please omit or add corn or carrots.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner is the best. Not only that you can mix and match vegetables, but it is all year round kind of meal. Don’t you agree?

One of our favorite fish is salmon. We just love salmon made any way possible; smoked, grilled, poached, baked. It is amazing in baked dishes or sandwiches.

What is your favorite fish?

On the other hand, sheet pan dinner is just phenomenal. You can add chicken, sausage, beef, pork or any other fish. Also, it is fantastic to clean your fridge day when you do not have so much food, but it has to be used.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

I have made this dish many times and the best way to not overcook fish was to actually wrap it in foil. If you hate relationship with Alum foil then just use parchment paper.

I cooked it at the same temperature and pulled salmon 10 minutes earlier so it ended up cooking in the foil before serving. It was absolutely divine!

Yes, you can absolutely bake fish on top of your veggies but I found this way tastier.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

The whole point of my blog is to inspire you to get back to cooking your own meals, so you can use whatever protein or vegetables you wish to use or whatever is in season.

However, ever since Sitka Salmon Shares announced on their website that we are going to have Salmon in the next shipmant I could not wait. I love all their fish.

If you ever tasted then you must agree with me, but since salmon is family favorite we were eagerly anticipating our subscription box to come.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Easy, Delicious and a perfect family dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1- 1 1/2 pound Salmon Fillet, defrosted (Wild Alaskan)
  • Kosher Salt a good pinch or two, rub on the salmon
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground black Pepper
  • Lemon slices from 1 lemon
  • 1 teasoon dried Oregano
  • 5 tablespooms of Garlic-Herb Butter (if available)

Vegetables

  • 1 pound New Potatoes, I used red
  • 1/2 pound Green Beans
  • 1/2 pound Baby Carrots
  • 1 pound Broccoli, I used frozen florets 
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  • 4-5 Garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375F

SALMON:

  1. Defrost salmon, and take it out of the pack. Take a large heavy-duty aluminum foil or parchment paper and then, season salmon with salt, pepper, herbs. Rub on both sides well, then place the sliced lemon on each slice of salmon and a tablespoon of butter. Wrap nicely and prep vegetables.
  2. Place Salmon to bake at the same time you will bake vegetables.
  3. Make sure to take it out after 25 minutes. That way salmon will not overcook. It will continue cooking in the foil until it is ready to be served. So do not open it until you are ready to eat or until vegetables are ready.

SHEET PAN VEGETABLES:

  1. Wash Potatoes and either cut them in half or the quarters.
  2. Season each vegetable with salt, pepper, and herbs, then place each vegetable next to each other but do not overcrowd the sheet pan. Make sure it is somewhat in one layer.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 40 minutes in 375F preheated oven.
  4. If the potatoes need a bit more time to cook, then remove all the other vegetables and allow potatoes to cook additional 2-3 minutes under the broiler (medium temp).

Notes

You may use any vegetables that you have or are in season; Cauliflower, asparagus, peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc. Possibilities are endless

You may cook vegetables in the air fryer, but potatoes might take a bit more time to crisp up.

If you do not have garlic and herbs butter available, then just add a pinch more salt, add more dried parsley and a teaspoon or two of garlic powder, that's it!
