Hasselback Chicken

Amount Measure Ingredients
1 splash Olive oil
½ cup Fresh Spinach
½ cup Ricotta Cheese
2 Chicken Breasts
½ cup Cheddar Cheese
1 Tbsp Paprika
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Directions:

1.) Cook the spinach on a medium heat in a splash of oil for 3-5 minutes until it is slightly wilted.
2.) Stir in the ricotta and cook for a further 30-60 seconds. Allow to cool.
3.) Cut slits into the chicken breasts about 1/4 inch apart but don’t cut all the way through – about 75% of the way down is what you should aim for, but don’t stress over it.
4.) Stuff all of the spinach and ricotta mixture into the slits.
5.) Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
6.) Grate the cheddar and sprinkle it generously on top.
7.) Shake a good bit of ground paprika over the chicken to add some colour and flavour.
8.) Bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes at 400°F until the cheese has melted and the juices are clear.

Chicken Dog Biscuits (Grain Free)

Makes about 20 (3-inch) biscuits

Amount Measure Ingredients
2 1/2* cups Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo & Fava Flour (OR 1 1/4 cup garbanzo/chickpea flour and 1 1/4 cup fava bean flour)
1/2 cup homemade or low fat, low sodium chicken broth
1 egg

*Be warned that you’ll need plenty of extra flour for dusting the countertop, rolling pin, cookie cutter, and pretty much anything else that is going to come in contact with the dough. You will also use some for dusting the biscuits.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the flour in a bowl. Add the chicken broth and egg, and stir to combine.
  3. Use your hands to press the mixture together until it forms a smooth, homogenous ball of dough.
  4. Dust the countertop very generously with flour. Dust the dough with a little extra flour before rolling it out into a sheet about 1/4-inch thick.
  5. Use your desired cookie cutter to cut the dough into pieces. (If needed, dip the cookie cutter in flour to help keep the dough from sticking to it.) Arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip each biscuit over, then return to the oven to continue baking until the treats are firm to the touch and baked through, about 8 minutes more.

*These treats should be stored in an airtight container inside the refrigerator.

Big Joe and Mama’s Recipes
Big Joe and His Mamma

Joe started in radio at the age of 15 in a small Mississippi town and never looked back.

"I'm the youngest of 4 boys, so Momma had her hands full feeding us I'm sure. I watched and learned every opportunity I had with her in the kitchen. Whether it was cooking black eyed peas and corn bread or one of her famous pecan pies, my Mom seemed to know how to cook anything."

So from those years with Momma to living on my own and having to cook for one, Joe has managed to shake and bake some pretty good grub over the years!
