Easy Roasted Potatoes

This is another of my favorite easy recipes! These go with anything and are great for when you are tired of mashed potatoes. Just chop up your potatoes, (I like the red because they cook faster) then melt some butter, as much as you like to put on, and then add salt, pepper, and any other seasonigs that you want. I have started adding either dill or oregano and it is really good! Josh loves to put cheese on these as well. Mix your potatoes, butter and seasoning well, and bake in the over at 425 for about 45 min., stirring occasionally. I like to malke these with the chicken and I can bake them at the same time and be done with dinner all at once! (Sorry the picture is sideways)

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Here is a recipe that I have found and vastly simplified, but it tastes great and is so quick and easy! All you do is put your chicken in a glass baking dish, dice up 1-2 small apples, slice some mushroooms and throw those on top, and then add a bottle of Kikomann's Sweet and Sour sauce,(or any brand, or make your own) if you do use the bottled kind I add just a little bit of water to help spread it, stir everything around and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked! We love it! (Yes, the pink sauce tends to make the chicken still look a little questionable!)
