Chicken-Fried Fish With Rice

Chicken Fried Fish


  • 4 6-ounce tilapia fillets
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups minute rice
  • 1/4 cup Newman’s Own Organics Olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh/dry  parsley

Meanwhile, sprinkle the fish all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Combine the flour and paprika in a shallow dish. Beat the eggs in another dish. Dip each fish fillet in the eggs, then dredge in the flour mixture, turning to coat. Reserve the flour mixture.

Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry the fish until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for a nice golden brown. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe out the skillet when finished with fish.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the reserved flour mixture, then add the chicken broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil, whisking. Add the milk, cream cheese and parsley; cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat up the required water in a pan for your minute rice and cook as directed.

Divide the rice and fish among plates and top with the sauce and sprinkle with paprika. Serve with the fresh green beans, asparagus, or potatoes.

This is a great recipe for someone who loves fish and for those who may not. For those who do not like this I promise you would forget you were eating fish! Don’t believe me give it a try and let me know how it turns out.

Honey Roasted Potatoes

This recipe is truly the easiest and the tastiest one yet! We, as a family of six had to triple the recipe and it took about an hour to cook thoroughly. My suggestion if you are to double or triple the recipe be sure to start cooking ahead of time so that your meal will be complete. I made the mistake of starting potatoes as I was cooking my main dish and everything was done except those potatoes and the wait was not fun.

So try it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

Looking for a frozen treat for you or the kids these are great all year around. Grapes are a great fruit and good for you!

Thoroughly rinse your grapes and pick all of them off the vines and dry them well. After you had dried all the grapes get a freezer safe plastic bowl and put the grapes into the bowl.

Within a few hours you have a cold frozen treat for your family!

May sound a little odd but they are a must try 🙂

Also, great way to keep your wine in chilled. Just throw a few of them in your glass and enjoy!

Chicken Noodle Soup Or Chicken And Dumplings

1 large stock pot
2 whole chickens
4 bay leafs
1 onion
12 chicken bouillon cubes
1 whole bundle of celery
1 bags of whole carrots
2 10.5 oz cans of cream of celery soup
3 Tablespoons Accent powder
2 Teaspoons Salt

Estimated cooking time 3 hours including prep.

This recipe feeds 6 or more might want to cut it in half for smaller family but, we have a good amount of  leftovers as well.













First fill your pot half way with water and turn it on high and place 2 whole chickens in the pot make sure there is enough water to cover the chickens. Second take the onion and chop it up finely and toss it into the pot and bay leaves in as well. This will boil for about one hour and a half depending on the size of the chickens when they are done you will notice the meat falling off the bones. Once that happens you will turn the burner off take the chicken out and put aside into a bowl to cool off but be careful not to burn your self. While the chicken is cooling you will gather your carrots and celery wash them well and dice them to your preferred size.  Canned carrots work just as good as the fresh. Once you get them all cut turn your pot back on high and add your vegetables and your bouillon cubes add more if you prefer a stronger taste and add three tablespoons of Accent powder and stir well to make sure everything is dissolved. Now it is time to tackled that chicken you will have to take all the meat off the bones and add it into the pot just check thoroughly because you don’t want any bones in your soup.( Also important note make sure you are alone if a man is in the kitchen at the time he may eat the chicken.) Stir it up well. Once you get your desired taste open both cans of cream of celery soup and stir that in as well gives a great flavor to the soup.


Now here is where you decide Noodle or dumpling?

If you are going for the noodle option I would advise the wide egg noodle

4 cups of egg noodles or more if desired

If you choose dumpling there is more work involved.

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon salt
Ice cold water

To prepare the dumplings: Mix the flour with the salt and mound together in a mixing bowl. Beginning at the center of the mound, drizzle a small amount of ice water over the flour. Using your fingers, and moving from the center to the sides of the bowl, gradually incorporate about two cups of ice cold water. Knead the dough repeatedly and form it into ball and yes it gets very sticky and I think to myself every time this isn’t going to work but it always does. so once you get the dough done sprinkle a  good amount of flour onto a clean work surface. Roll the dough around to form a nice ball and grab your rolling pin a out and start rolling out the dough. The dough will be firm and it will seem to bounce back it takes a little elbow grease to get it in it’s place. Once you get a nice slab of dough sprinkle some black pepper over it and take your rolling pin back over it to make it stick. Now the fun part is cutting it into small pieces I love to use a pizza cutter fast and works like a charm. Cut about one inch and a half or to your preferred size. Now we are done with the dumpling, just slowly drop a few into the boiling pot you don’t want to throw a lot in at one time because they might tend to stick together. After all dumplings are in make sure to turn your heat to a medium setting and let it cook for another 15 minutes and it will be ready to eat. 🙂

I hope you can get some joy out of this recipe as we do and if you do make it be sure to let us know how it went.
