Chicken With Feta Cheese Sauce

As most of you know I have an obsession with cheese…  I love feta, cheddar, parmesan, blue, swiss, mozzarella, basically any kind of cheese… that comes from a cow.  That being said I was super excited to try this recipe.  The kids were not fans! 

I liked the flavor a lot but the color was a little off putting.  I used real butter and it tends to turn brown when it melts plus the bottom of my pan was brown from cooking the chicken and when I added all the sauce ingredients it became this weird gray color.  While the flavors were ok I feel like if I make this again next time I will use two different skillets instead of the same one.

4 Chicken Breasts
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
1 TB Butter
4 Tsp. Flour
1 ½ Cups Milk
1 Cup Feta Cheese
2 Tsp. Garlic Salt
2 Tsp. Onion Powder

Heat skillet over high heat. 
Coat chicken lightly with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add the chicken to the skillet when the pan is HOT.
Cook approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
Remove chicken from skillet.
Melt butter in the same pan over medium heat.
Add flour and whisk until light brown.
Slowly add milk, stirring constantly.
Simmer 5-7 minutes (it should thicken).
Add cheese and stir till melted.
Add in garlic salt and onion powder.

Spoon sauce over chicken.

Parmesan Potato Balls

Just a couple of nights ago I made an amazing side dish that my family raved about.  In fact I think it made my husband fall in love with me all over again.  The dish is super simple and doesn’t take too much prep time.  The worst part of the whole thing is making sure you have no lumps in your potatoes.  So gather your ingredients and let’s get cooking!

1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups mashed potatoes (room temp)
2 cups parmesan cheese
2 cups Italian style bread crumbs
3 eggs

Place mashed potatoes in a large bowl.
Add in garlic salt, butter and lemon juice.
Next go ahead and mix in your parmesan cheese.
Roll the potato mixture into balls.
Whisk the eggs in a small bowl.
Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish (I use a pie plate).
Dip the balls into the eggs and then roll in the bread crumb mixture.
I do this step a couple of times so that they have a nice coating.
Heat approximately 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large pan.
Fry potato balls in batches (they take about 3 minutes each).
Drain on paper towels and then devour them!!!
