Onion Soup Roasted Chicken! And DESSERT!


Well okay then…

Today I have an actual COMPLETE MEAL! Yay!

For dinner, we have a super delicious

Onion Soup Roasted Chicken with Veggies!

…and for dessert we have…. Well, you’ll just have to wait and see…

First of all, here is what you need for the chicken:

Ingredients:

  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (Mine came in a pack of THREE. Why???)
  • 1 lb potatoes, cut into small chunks
  • sliced carrots. The Official Recipe says two, but I like carrots. I mean, I really, really like carrots. So I used a whole bunch. So whatever you want to do is fine. They’re carrots. They’ll be like veggie candy anyway once they’re cooked… (Yay!)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450F.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bag or bowl, and mix well.

3. Dump everything into a roasting pan, and put the chicken breasts on top.

4. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is done. The usual directions say to baste halfway through, but I really didn’t. Baste with what? Olive oil and potato juices?

5. Anyway, when it’s done, you should get something like THIS:

6. Plate it up, add some greenish veggies if you want, and chow down!

7. (But save some room for dessert!)

…And for dessert we have….. (Drumroll, please….)

Strawberry Nutella Crepes!!!!

Ingredients:

  • Crepes. You can probably find a recipe online somewhere, but my entire life is not about making crepes these days, so I just got the premade ones. Premade crepes will save you at least half an hour in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove, making WAY more crepes than you will need. Ever.
  • Strawberries. If you can find some good fresh ones, use those. I got mine frozen, because they are picked at the peak of freshness and…. Okay I won’t lie. They were on sale.
  • NUTELLA!!!! aka Food of the Gods.
  • Sugar: granulated for the strawberries, and powdered for the decoration.

Directions:

1. If your strawberries are frozen, please, by all means, thaw them out.

2. If your strawberries are not frozen, trim and clean them. You don’t know where they’ve been!

3. Slice them into quarters and throw them into a bowl.

4. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar, and let them sit for a while.

5. After a while, they should look like THIS:

6. Preheat your favorite nonstick skillet to medium.

7. place a shmear of Nutella onto half of a crepe.

7. Fold in half, put into skillet, and brown on one side, flip, and brown on the other side. Like so:

8. Take crepe out of pan, fold into quarters, and plate.

9. Cover with juicy runny strawberries, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Now that wasn’t so hard, was it???

I love the onion soup mix chicken. I also like to make mine with a whole chicken in a crock pot. I can put it in, turn it on, and let it cook all day.
