Sweet Baked Chicken with Summer Veggie Saute and Whole Wheat Penne

3 recipes posted here ~ The chicken recipe was one of the freezer meals I had put together with my first Freezer Meal Workshop. I have really enjoyed pulling these pre-prepared meals out on busy days and knowing that dinner is taken care of. I also love the taste of fresh summer squash and zucchini so I sauteed them and served them over buttered garlic penne. (If you are interested in a Freezer Meal Workshop ~ let me know.)

So first off, here's the chicken recipe. It does call specifically for Wildtree ingredients and I would be happy to help you get your hands on those. We ALL loved this chicken, especially my husband.

Sweet Baked Chicken
  Provided by Nancy from Madison, WI

  • ½ cup Wildtree Sweet Onion Spread
  • 2 tablespoons Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Wildtree Garlic Galore Seasoning Blend
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, boneless, and skinless

Place the first 4 ingredients into a zip lock bag, then add the chicken and massage until the meat is well coated. 
Place in freezer until needed. 
Thaw in refrigerator overnight. 
Place all ingredients in baking dish and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Halfway through baking, turn thighs and baste. Repeat just before serving. 

This could be prepared in the crock pot by cooking on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Buttered Garlic Whole Wheat Penne
I just cooked the penne according to package directions then tossed a little butter in with two pressed garlic cloves. 

Summer Veggie Saute
I sliced two summer squash, to zucchini and tossed them into a skillet with Wildtree's Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil. I added two fresh chopped tomatoes and some whole Baby Portabella Mushrooms then squeezed the juice of one lemon over the mixture and seasoned with a dash of Wildtree's Rancher Steak Rub. (You could use whatever oil you have on hand and regular salt and pepper for seasoning.)   

The entire meal was incredibly SIMPLE, incredibly DELICIOUS and incredibly HEALTHY ~ all part of what makes it appealing to this busy mama!
