FOLEY'S FOLLIES

Chicken Oscar

Possibly my favorite meal other than a Fillet Mignon from Forbes Locker in Spirit Lake.  I don't make this often and for the life of me I don't know why!  It's so easy to put together and so well worth the effort.


You start off with two toasted English Muffins, topped with a chicken breast, top that with some roasted asparagus spears, top that with some creamy Hollandaise and crown off the entire creation with some tender crab meat.  You're drooling aren't you???

I only had some chicken tenders on hand so I coated them in an Italian style Panko crumbs and slowly pan fried them.  You can use a nice piece of steak also if some in your family prefers that over chicken.  Fix a nice small salad as a side, a dish of tart raspberry jello with raspberries topped with a dollop of whipped cream and you have a meal that would please anyone.  (Sorry about no pics of the salad and dessert but they were consumed before I realized I hadn't taken photos)  Even decided to make the meal a little more special by using some of the dishes I had stored away...time to bring out more of the dishes I have and start to use them for everyday.



NOW, what to do with the leftover Hollandaise ????  Sounds like I just may be having Eggs Benedict with a refreshing Mimosa soon!

Even though we're having Thanksgiving at my sisters house I put together my own little fall centerpiece for my dining room table... love the candleholders with their own little "snuffer" attached.  (Yes, I know I should have burned the candle before the photo..just forgot)






Want to wish my beautiful great niece Mackensie a very Happy 13th Birthday tomorrow!!


 


Thanks for Stopping By.....

You had me right up until the crab. No shellfish for me.
Mimosas? Yes please.
By the way did you know that there are some half dressed hunks on your sidebar? I couldn't believe my eyes and had to look through the photo 4-5 times to make sure but yup they are in there. Lol.

Are you trying to kill me? It all sounded fantastic, until I got to the crab part, then all of a sudden I got a couple hives, and my breathing got slow. It looks fantastic! and I love Hollandaise! So count me in for the Eggs and Mimosa's! Kathleen doesn't drink, I'll have her cocktail :)

Happy birthday to your beautiful niece :)

Hi! I am visiting from Cuisine Kathleen. I see you're in NW Iowa. I am in Omaha, so we're almost neighbors. Your Chicken Oscar looks delicious. I enjoy eating it but have never made it before.

Your Chicken Oscar has me drooling at 11pm :-) Looks DELISH! I love the bread part on the bottom. The first time I ever had Steak Oscar was at a restaurant in my home town that is no longer there. They used grilled Pistolette Rolls in the same way. I never realized those rolls were regional but I can't find them here to recreate that Steak Oscar. They are little rolls with cornmeal on the outside...much like english muffins!! So maybe I have my substitute. Your Thanksgiving decor is pretty. I have none! HB to your sweet niece.

A beautiful looking meal on some wonderful looking dishes. I love the leaf pattern ones and the dot edging on the solid ones.

Those candleholders are fantastic.

I can see why you love that niece of yours. She is a pretty one!

Those candle holders are pretty cool. I never seen ones with their own snuffer.
