Chicken and Kashi Casserole

Kashi is labeled as a breakfast pilaf and is often found with the hot
breakfast cereals in the grocery store. But it is a wonderful wholegrain
side dish for any meal. You'll love the chewy texture in this pilaf and the
spices that are reminiscent of stuffing.

½ medium onion, diced
¾ cup diced celery
¾ cup sliced mushrooms
1 ½ teaspoons chicken flavor base
1 ½ cups hot water
1 6.5-ounce package Kashi
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
4 chicken breasts, bone in, skin removed
Mrs. Dash seasoning
Salt as desired

Preheat oven to 375°F. To a 3-quart or larger covered casserole or dutch
oven, add vegetables, chicken base, and hot water. Mix well. Add Kashi and
poultry seasoning and stir. Arrange chicken breasts on top, bone-side down.
Sprinkle chicken with Mrs. Dash and salt as desired. Cover, and bake in oven
for 1½ hours. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Grilled Pork Loin Steaks with Rosemary

Be sure not to overcook pork steaks. Use a meat thermometer to be sure that
they stay moist and juicy.

1 pound thick-cut pork loin steaks
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
½ teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring (optional)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

Cut pork into 4 pieces. Place all ingredients in a resealable plastic bag.
Shake well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to
overnight. Grill or broil pork steaks just until they reach 170°F. Serve

Grilled Salmon Fillet

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Choose fish several
times each week. The fish can also be baked in a foil packet in a 400°F oven
for 20 to 30 minutes.

1 2-pound wild salmon fillet
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup soy sauce
Mrs. Dash or lemon pepper seasoning

Preheat barbecue grill. Rinse salmon fillet and pat dry with paper towel.
Cut a piece of foil 4 inches longer than the length of the salmon. Brush it
with olive oil. Lay fillet, skin-side down, on foil. Curl edges of foil up
around salmon to prevent juices from running out, leaving the top uncovered.
Spread garlic evenly across salmon. Combine lemon juice, Worcestershire
sauce, and soy sauce, and pour over fillet. Sprinkle liberally with
seasoning. Place salmon fillet on foil about 6 inches from coals or gas
flame. Indirect heat is best. Cover grill. Cook 15 minutes. Do not turn.
Check salmon. Salmon is done when flesh has turned paler pink and flakes
with a fork. Do not overcook.
