Materials from Sulyn, Bazzill and Glue Dots will be on-hand. While Michael's says the free project events will be held at all of their US and Canada stores on Saturday, June 19 from 10am to 2pm, we still think a call-ahead can't hurt.

Free Project at JoAnn Fabrics: Another possibility for a fabulous, crafty free card is JoAnn's, where every store will welcome kids on Saturday, June 19 from 1:00 to 3:00 to make free cards for Dads and Grandpa. It's another one of their Make It-Take It Events.

Italian Chicken & Potatoes Recipe

Posted by Centsable Andersons Tuesday, June 8, 2010 0 comments

People often ask us if weactually eat the stuff we buy. Well, yeah, of course we do! Recently, we bought 10# bags of frozen leg quarters from Food World ($.39/1#), and this Sunday we decided to break out a bag for the week!

Obviously, 10 pounds is a LOT of chicken, but with 5 of us to feed, this makes for several meals and lunches, too!

Italian Chicken and Potatoes
5 Chicken Leg Quarters
4 Large Idaho Potatoes (10# bag bought at Burris Market for $1.99)
1 Bottle of Kraft Italian Dressing or Italian Pesto Dressing
1 Salt & Pepper
1 Italian Seasoning
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (more is okay, if not better!!)

We took 5 of the leg quarters, washed and cleaned them. Lay them in a casserole dish and use about half of the bottle of dressing on the chicken. Coat well! Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, as well as a few shakes of Italian Seasoning.

We washed and cut the potatoes up into quarters. We put them into a bowl and poured the rest of the dressing over the potatoes. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Put the lid on the bowl and shake it up! I let the chicken and the potatoes marinate over night, but at least two hours is plenty if you are short on time.

I lay foil down on a large cookie sheet, lay the ckicken and potatoes on the sheet. Cover with foil and cook at 405 for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 30 minutes. Sprinkle your Parmesan Cheese over the chicken and potatoes and cook until it melts.

This is so yummy!

The rest of the chicken was seasoned with Montreal Chicken seasoning (bought on sale at Publix) and grilled. Everyone was excited to take some for lunch and have again tonight for dinner. ENjoy!
