I add a small package of bacon bits (which is a whopping 300 calories by itself) and a moderate amount of Italian dressing. It is like a BLT salad and it is really good. It is enough to make 2 small salads, but I eat the whole thing. I calculated the entire thing to be 700 calories.

The original recipe reads, "In a 9x13 pan, cut 3 chicken breasts in half, add 2 cans green beans on one side and cut up red skin potatoes on the other. Sprinkle a packet of zesty Italian dressing mix over the top. Drizzle a stick of melted butter over it. Cover it with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.".
I cut the chicken into slightly smaller pieces. My mother likes to use a cup of liquid Italian dressing instead of zesty Italian Seasoning Mix and the stick of melted butter, so I tried that. I also added some Beer Can Seasoning.
I probably went overboard on the potatoes. I also cooked crescent rolls at the same time.
This is a winner. The food was fully cooked. Because my chicken wasn't fully thawed before I started cooking, I cooked it an extra 15 minutes. The end result was mostly moist but just a touch dry. I only ate 40% of it, but it was very satisfying.
However, I think that the liquid Italian dressing gave it a slightly sour taste, probably because of the vinegar in the dressing. It is not very noticeable, but next time I might stick to the original recipe that calls for seasoning mix and butter.
I find this amusing. I've tried some different kinds of Asian foods, although I don't remember if Korean was one of them, although I think so. I tried Vietnamese, but I wasn't thrilled with it. I sometimes would eat at a couple of different Japanese restaurants, one of which had a lot of fried tempura, which tastes great.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kEXWjMo3dYAs far as I am concerned, the best food I ever had was at a Persian restaurant in Salt Lake City. The restaurant was in the back of a Persian grocery store. I also really like beef brisket.
My simple recipe is to use 20 to 50% of a package of shredded cabbage with a generous sprinkling of bacon bits and a generous amount of Italian dressing. This is very good by itself, but with tomato wedges, it is almost perfect.
In the last couple of days, I have tried adding strawberries, chopped apple, and cashews. These don't necessarily make the salad taste better, but it is a good way to eat fruit and nuts. I especially like the apple in the salad.
2/5 to 1/2 package of frozen corn, thawed.
One home grown tomato cut into 1/4ths
A generous sprinkling of bacon bits.
A generous amount of Italian dressing.
I mixed this all up and it was wonderful.
Next time I want to try more ingredients like some fruit. Some apple would be nice. I'm finding that I don't have to worry about measuring the ingredients. I just throw whatever I have available into a bowl and mix it up.
