On that crazy night when you need something fast and delicious..It can’t get any easier than this creamy delightful dish.  Let’s get started with the ingredients

4 chicken cutlets (sliced thin)

1 tablespoon Tuscan seasoning (or Italian chicken seasoning)

1/4 cup Ken’s creamy caesar salad dressing

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup freshly grated Romano cheese

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4  tspn ground sage

1/8 tspn ground nutmeg

8oz box penne pasta (or half of the 160z box)

In medium bowl season chicken with Tuscan seasoning then add Caesar salad dressing and coat the chicken evenly.  Let marinade for about 1/2 hour (or to save time prepare chicken the night before and let marinade overnight)

Boil pasta according to directions on the box.  Strain and set aside.  Using a cast iron pan, thinly coat the bottom with olive oil. Heat pan on medium high heat, once the pan is hot add the chicken and brown on both sides, making sure you don’t overcook to maintain the juiciness.  Remove and place on cutting board and slice chicken.

In the cast iron skillet, add the heavy cream, cheeses and remaining ingredients.  Bring to a light boil and then simmer down stirring until thicken.  Texture should be a creamy consistency.  (Here’s where I tend to play around.. take a taste.. if you need more cheese (which I love) add a bit more to achieve your taste.

Then add pasta into skillet and blend into sauce.  Next add sliced chicken and blend.  Add a light sprinkle of black pepper.  Let simmer for 10 minutes, serve hot.

Deviled Eggs

Yum
Who doesn’t like the classic deviled eggs??  Just thought I’d share my recipe for this long time favorite.  Deviled eggs are always an easy tasteful finger food to serve.  There are all kinds of recipes out there, so here’s one more to add to the list.

6 hard-boiled eggs – peeled     1/4 cup Hellman’s mayonnaise    1 1/2 tblspn Ken’s Creamy Caesar salad dressing    1 tblspn spicy brown mustard    1/2 tblspn sweet relish  1/4 tspn Tableblend Ms. Dash  1/8 tspn garlic salt  light sprinkle of onion powder  3 dashes hot pepper sauce   light sprinkle of black pepper  1/8 tspn paprika

Slice eggs and remove yolk in a small mixing bowl.  With a fork, smooth egg yolks and add remaining ingredients.  Stir to a creamy consistency.  If needed, add a bit more mayonnaise and salad dressing to make creamier.  Even though I’m sharing this recipe, I always vary the measurements by taste.  I take little tastes to which ingredient is a bit more needed.   Using a small spoon, scoop mixture and put inside the cavity of each egg.  Lightly sprinkle top with paprika and refrigerate until ready to serve.
