Cheesy Chicken

My good friends brought over a harvest from their garden and I made one of my favorite meals of Cheesy Chicken, with the cherry tomatoes and fresh green beans.

Cheesy Chicken

This is my go-to for an easy, yet impressive meal!


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, or about 10 chicken tenders
  • 1 and 1/4 cups sharp cheddar, grated (or use whatever kind of cheese you like)
  • 1 rounded teaspoon grainy mustard
  • 3 ounces cream
  • a handful of  cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice chicken breast, by butterflying them, or use the chicken tenders.
  3. Place the chicken in a sprayed baking dish, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Mix cheese, cream, and mustard.  Dollop on top of the chicken.
  5. Scatter the cherry tomatoes on top.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

Two of my granddaughters and I had a tea party this past week.  We've had such dreary, rainy weather, that we had it indoors.  They had blueberry lemonade, party sandwiches, and veggies and dip.

Cissy and Ella are cousins.  They resemble each other, don't they?  They decided to wear skirts and pretty tops.

Mochi balls were our dessert.  Cissy chose cookies and cream, Ella chose blueberry vanilla and I chose strawberry.

The girls wanted Vanilla Chai and lots of whipped cream on top!

We sat at the coffee table on little kid chairs, and it was perfect!  We are already planning our next tea party.  Of course, Nana took them shopping afterwards! 

My Daughter, Molly, and three of her four kids came over on the 3rd, which was my late hubby's birthday. She made a big breakfast of scrambled eggs, with ham, and cheese, maple sausage, yogurt parfaits with berries, and granola, and then red velvet cupcakes for dessert.  Wasn't that thoughtful?  We had the best time laughing and talking!  There's nothing like laughing with loved ones.

Thank you for your visit!  xo
