oven baked bbq chicken

Im not the biggest chicken fan but I was able to get 2 packs of chicken legs from Meijer for .84 after a nice coupon. So I decided to make bbq chicken legs but inside since its rainy and not grilling weather here in Michigan. Oh boy did they turn out yummy! Here’s my easy recipe:
10 chicken legs
Mrs. Dash chicken grilling blend
Paprika
1bottle bbq sauce ( I used krafts brown sugar kind)
Preheat oven to 400
Rinse off chicken and season both sides to taste with Mrs. Dash and paprika ( I didnt measure)
Bake for 20 mins then brush some bbq sauce on bake for 25-30 more mins until done every 5 mins brush on more bbq sauce on chicken ( I used almost the whole bottle and what I had left I added to my baked beans)
These turned out great yum!

country corn casserole!

country corn casserole!

I can not believe this was my first time ever making or having this dish its so good. I think I found my new side dish to take to get togethers instead of green bean casserole. This dish was simple to make, and cheap all ingredients I already had except creamed corn (yuck lol) I only made two changes in the recipe I added a few sprinkles of sugar and some shredded cheddar cheese in the mix. This new recipe is gonna be made more often, I hope your family enjoys it as well!

Italian shrimp so good and simple!!!

After searching onling for a shrimp recipe I food a fool proof delicious simple recipe. So I decided to give it a try I never make shrimp or rarely eat it but this just looked good. After going to 3 stores. I found a bag of frozen medium shrimp at Aldi for only $3.99. About half the price at my other two grocery stores. Now I wish I brought two bags of shrimp cuz its so yummy I just want to eat more lol. Plus dipping fresh french bread in the sauce is amazing. I made a bag of Knorr creamy garlic shells pasta and a garden salad and french bread with the shrimp what a great meal! Here is the super simple recipe:
Preheat oven to 350
Melt one stick of butter and pour in your pan
Cut one lemon in slices and layer the slices on top of the butter
Add defrosted shrimp sprinkle with one packet of Italian seasoning ( found in the salad dressing Aisle)
Bake 15 mins enjoy!!!
