FFF: Memories

Today's Fun Food Friday took me back. Actually this day got away from me and I kinda forgot about FFF. Because of this we didn't have a dessert tonight, maybe tomorrow. Dinner tonight is my very favorite dish at one particular restaurant. The problem with this is that the restaurant is the Huddle House. There is no Huddle House here. Sad thing. I'm pulling this off the top of my head from what I remember. The dish is Chicken Melts with Scattered Hashbrowns. Love, Love, Love, Love it. The ingredients are:

Enough boneless, skinless chicken breasts (one for each sandwich) for people eating
A couple of slices of cheese
1 large onion
1 Tbls butter
1 heaping Tbls of bacon grease or butter for hashbrowns
4 cups of frozen tater tots
1/2 cup Italian dressing
4 slices bread

I made 3 pieces of chicken, 2 for the hubby and I and 1 for the kiddos cut up into bite size pieces. Put chicken in a large ziploc bag and close. Take a rolling pin or mallet and pound on chicken until it is slightly smaller and then add dressing and let it marinate for about an hour. Place your chicken in a hot skillet and cook until cooked through, flipping occasionally. In another pan, melt your butter and add your chopped onion and cook until soft and translucent. Remove from the heat and set aside. When chicken is done, put on a plate and clean your pan for the hashbrowns. These are the easiest and yummiest hashbrowns. I stumbled upon this method when I was pregnant with Big Man about 6 years ago. Add your bacon grease or butter to the pan. When it is melted add your tater tots and stir. While they are cooking, butter 1 side of your bread. Place 1 slice of bread, butter side down, on a grill pan or a George Foreman. Add chicken, a tbls of the cooked onions, and a slice of cheese, then top with other slice of bread, butter side up. It's kinda like making a grilled cheese. Lower the Foreman lid, or if using a grill pan, flip when down side is browned. Check your tots and keep stirring. As they cook, start breaking them apart with the spatula. After they have cooked all the way through, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, stir in about 2 tbls onions and put a few slices of cheese on top. Remove from heat and let cheese melt. Take sandwiches off the Foreman or grill pan and serve. So yummy. If you have any questions, just let me know. All for now.
