Orange Chicken

Slow cooker recipe here: http://team-t-adventures.blogspot.ca/2010/03/crock-pot-orange-chicken.html

I used to do it in the slow cooker like in the recipe above, but somehow I don’t always have time to slow cook stuff so I adapted the recipe to be able to do it in a frying pan.

  • 1/3 cup of flour

Step Two

2

While the chicken is cooking, mix the salt, the balsamic vinegar, the ketchup, the orange juice and the brown sugar together in a bowl.

 

Step Three

Lasagna Rolls

Ingredients:

P1110291 P1110292

  • 8 Lasagna noodles, cooked
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup of Ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg white
  • Pepper
  • 3-4 tomatoes, sliced

Marinara sauce:

  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion
  • 28oz of crushed tomatoes
  • salt and pepper

 

Step One

P1110293

Preheat your oven to 350º. Whisk the ricotta cheese and egg white together, then mix in about 12oz. of the shredded mozzarella cheesse and put pepper to taste.

 

Step Two

P1110298

Saute your onions with olive oil for about 3 minutes then add the crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 25 – 30 minutes (or until you’re done with step three like I did).

 

Step Three

P1110296

While your marinara sauce is simmering, align your cooked lasagna noodles on parchment paper placed on a baking sheet. Put some of the mix on the noodles (I actually had to make another batch of the mix because I didn’t have enough) then add the sliced tomatoes.

 

Step Four

P1110297P1110299

Roll your lasagna noodles then add some marinara sauce on each of them. Make sure to cover the edges of the rolls so they don’t dry up. Then add some mozzarella cheese on top of the rolls. Bake for 30 minutes.

 

Final Product

P1110300

Don’t mind the black spot in the corner, it’s just burnt sauce on the parchment paper. There was nothing burnt on the lasagna rolls. They were delicious!
