Garlic and Cheese Biscuits

Okay, I am not a big Red Lobster fan, but I would go there just for their Garlic Cheese Biscuits. This recipe tastes just like them...and you don't have to go to Red Lobster to get them! They are super easy, super delicious, and...well, try them!

Printable Version

2 1/2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup cold whole milk
4 Tbs. cold butter
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 heaping cup cheddar cheese, grated

For top:
2 Tbs. melted butter
1/4 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 pinch salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix bisquick and cold butter with a pastry blender or fork. Do not mix too thoroughly, there should be small chunks of butter, about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk and garlic. Mix, but do not overmix.
Drop 1/4 cup portions of the dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until tops of biscuits are a light golden brown.
While biscuits are baking, combine melted butter, parsley, garlic powder and salt. Brush biscuits immediately after removing from the oven. Serve.

Makes 12-15 biscuits.

Raspberry Balsamic Glazed Meatballs

This was supposed to be an appetizer, but I whipped it into a meal by simply adding rice! These would be great served with just a toothpick in them as well. I made simple homemade meatballs, but frozen meatballs would be an even easier meal.

Raspberry Balsamic Glazed Meatballs

2 pounds fully cooked meatballs
1 cup raspberry preserves
3 Tbs. sugar
3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 Tbs. worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 Tbs. ginger

Coat crock-pot with nonstick cooking spray. Add meatballs (thawed if pre-frozen). In a small bowl, combine preserves, sugar, vinegar, worcestershire, and pepper flakes. Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds. Stir; microwave 3o seconds or until melted. (Mixture will be chunky). Pour mixture over meatballs and toss gently to coat well. Cover, cook on low for 2 1/2 hours. Stir in ginger, if desired. Cook uncovered 15 minutes to thicken slightly, stirring occasionally. Serve with rice for a main dish or toothpicks for an appetizer.

Serves 4 as a meal, 15 as an appetizer.

Honey Sauced Chicken

Hi Pinterest visitors! This recipe is delicious, but I have a few others that we LOVE EVEN MORE! 

to be pointed to my main page with the most recent recipes, or 
to get to all of our favorite Chicken recipes! Thanks for stopping in!

Oooo this meal was good...probably because it was a piece of cake, and because it was delicious! My hubb took one bite and complimented me, which is a hard thing to get sometimes...well, that immediately anyway! I really loved just throwing this in the crockpot and coming back 3 hours later to a finished meal. However, if you want to make it a 30 minute meal, I think cooking it in the oven would be equally as tasty. (P.S. The recipe actually used chicken WINGS, I substituted chicken breasts).

Honey Sauced Chicken

3/4 pound chicken (of your choice)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion (or 1/16 cup onion flakes)
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours or on high 1 1/2 hours. Chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.

To bake chicken as a 30 minute meal:
Dice chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper, place in 8x8 pan. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.

Serves 2.
