May 27 - BBQ Chicken

We had an extra little one for dinner tonight (we watched my friend, Sarah's little guy while she and her husband went to a rehearsal dinner), so I wanted to make something I knew everyone would eat (especially since it went so well yesterday!). I decided to do BBQ chicken, braised carrots and garlic red potatoes. It tasted so good and all three kiddos cleaned their plates! I've posted both recipes before, but they're so delicious, I'll post them again. Enjoy!

Braised Carrots
1 lb bag of baby carrots
1/2 cup water or chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Combine all ingredients in large saucepan.
  2. Simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until water/broth evaporates.

Roasted Garlic Red Potatoes
2 pounds red potatoes, quartered
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used low-fat)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
  2. Place potatoes in an 8x8 inch baking dish. 
  3. In a small bowl combine melted butter, garlic, salt and lemon juice; pour over potatoes and stir to coat. 
  4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over potatoes. Bake in preheated oven for at least 60 minutes (often a little longer).
