Orange and Ginger Chicken Breasts

This is one of the easiest meals I've prepared lately. The chicken came out moist, tender, and delicious. The best part is that you only need one ingredient for the chicken.

I'm always trying new things when it comes to cooking and happened to have a bottle of VH Chicken and Ginger stir-fry sauce in my refrigerator. I thought to myself that this might be good and went ahead and made it. Was I ever glad that I did. I served the chicken over a bed of rice and made a Greek salad.


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 - 1/2 a bottle of VH Orange and Ginger Stir-Fry sauce


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray an oven safe dish with cooking spray.
  • Place the chicken breasts in the dish and pour the VH sauce over the breasts.
  • Cook for 1 hour.
  • Remove from the oven and serve over a bed of rice. 
  • ENJOY!

Mac & Cheese With a Twist

I love homemade macaroni and cheese but hubby doesn't really care for it. Today I decided I'd try something different to tempt him.

What you'll need for this delicious comfort food.

  • 1 pound of lean ground beef cooked and drained
  • 400 grams of Tortiglioni pasta (uncooked) or pasta of your choice
  • 1 can of whole tomatoes
  • 3 - 4 cups of shredded old cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice
  • garlic powder

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Start by boiling your pasta.
  3. Fry the beef and sprinkle generously with garlic powder. Drain and set aside.
  4. Once the pasta is cooked drain and rinse under cold water.
  5. In the bottom of a casserole dish add the pasta.
  6. Mix in the ground beef.
  7. Next cut the tomatoes in half and gently mix into the macaroni mixture. 
  8. Pour half of the tomato juice over the top.
  9. Gently mix in about half of the cheese.
  10. Top with the rest of the cheese. 
  11. Cover and set in the oven for about 45 minutes. 
  12. Remove covering and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  13. Serve with salt and pepper and ENJOY!

This Pampered Chef casserole dish is one of the best investments I've made. You can cook everything from pasta to chickens and roasts in it and they always come out fantastic.
