Broiled Brown Sugar Grapefruit

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I hope that you have a wonderful day with your family and friends.  Because today is a day for family, I decided to make an old recipe Broiled Brown Sugar Grapefruit.  I hope you enjoy it.



My mom used to make Broiled Brown Sugar Grapefruit for breakfast when we were kids.  You know how some foods are just comforting when you think about, see, and smell the.  This is one of those for me.  My mom is visiting and I made this yesterday, and it was a good as I remembered.  

This is an easy simple breakfast, and it looks lovely.

Ingredients:

1 grapefruit (cut in half)

I hope that you like this recipe.  It is an old favorite, kind of like an old blanket that you put around yourself to feel comfy.

I always love hearing from you.

Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca

On my way back from Italy, I was reading my Cooking Light and came across this recipe for Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca.  It looked delicious, and since Saltimbocca is one of my favorites, I decided that I was going to make this for all of you.  It is a pretty simple recipe and one that I loved. 


Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca

Ingredients:

4 4 oz chicken cutlets ( I used 4 large breasts sliced in half to make them thinner)
1/8 tsp salt (I just sprinkled it on the chicken and didn't measure)

24 sage leaves
2 ounces sliced prosciutto cut into 8 strips ( I used 3 packages of proscuitto which has 6 pieces in each package and I wrapped 2 pieces around each breast)
4 tsp olive oil divided ( I used 2 TB per pan)
1/3 cup chicken broth (I used 2/3 cup)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice ( I used 1/2 cup) (this was too lemony so I would just use 1/3 cup of lemon juice)
1/2 tsp cornstarch (I used 3 tsp)
4 lemon wedges optional (I cut them and forgot to use them).
Shaved Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

First thing to all of you.  The changes I made are in blue.  I was making this for 6 people, so I doubled some ingredients and just changed others. One reminder, my lemon sauce was a little too tart, so I would cut this to 1/3 cup lemon juice.

I sliced my chicken in half to make them thinner while cooking.  Sprouts breasts are huge.  Four breasts weighed two pounds.

Sprinkle each breast with salt.

Then lay 3 sage leaves on each chicken breast.

Wrap 2 pieces of prosciutto around each chicken breast.

Put olive oil in 2 frying pans, and heat over medium heat, then add your chicken breasts.



Cook for 7 minutes on each side, and prosciutto is browned.


While the chicken is cooking mix chicken broth, lemon juice in a bowl. 

Whisk cornstarch into chicken broth mixture.



Once chicken is cooked remove from pan.

I added the drippings from the one pan to the other.

Then over medium heat I added the chicken broth mixture to the pan drippings.


Stir constantly until boiling.  Keep cooking stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened.

Pour sauce over chicken



Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese

Your done.  Time to serve dinner.

Serves 8

I served this with bow tie pasta, and it was delicious.  

I hope that you enjoy this recipe.  I love it.  I always love hearing from you, so send your comments.

Enjoy!!!

Wisdom



Today,  I will just be giving a few verses on Wisdom from Acts.  I felt led to share them with you.


Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
Acts 6:3


And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
Acts 6:10

And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.
Acts 7:10

And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds. 
Acts 7:22

I just felt that these were beautiful.  I always love hearing from you.

Have a Blessed week.
