  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip (8 ounces)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
Directions
  1. box lemon cake mix
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray Cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, cool whip, and egg. The combination will be VERY fluffy. Just keep mixing until well combined.
  4. Use a small cookie scoop or two spoons to drop rounded cookie dough into powdered sugar. Roll dough ball until completely covered. Set cookies on cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake at 350F for 8 minutes or until very lightly golden around the edges. Let cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Notes
Store at room temperature in airtight container. These are best within a day or two of baking but will probably not last a day.
This cookie dough is a little easier to handle if you refrigerate about an hour before dropping in powdered sugar, but it’s not required.
You don’t want to make these cookies too big; the key is to keep them small.
Since the cookie dough is sticky and to keep your cookie size small and consistent, try using a small cookie scoop to drop cookie dough into powdered sugar, for better handling

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans
(Cuisinart Convection steam oven directions included.) Gluten free. Low Carb, Diabetic Friendly and so simple to make
Source:
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • ¼ -½ cup olive oil
  • Juice of 2-3 lemons
  • Several cloves of garlic, cut in half (I buy the pre-peeled cloves – they’re so easy! And I put in probably 10-15 because I LOVE to eat them once they roast and get all soft)
  • Salt or seasoned salt & pepper to taste
  • A bunch of green beans (¾ pounds, ends trimmed)
  • 8-12 red baby potatoes, cut into halves)
  • Chicken 8 thighs or 4 breasts, bone-in, skin-on. (About 3 ¼ lbs)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic cloves.
  3. Add the green beans and potatoes to the oil mixture and toss to coat. Using tongs (salad tongs work great), transfer the veggies to a baking dish (9×13 is good). Potatoes to the outside and green beans on the inside
  4. Using the tongs, swirl each piece of chicken around in the oil mixture before placing on top of the green beans in the baking dish.
  5. If any oil remains, drizzle it on top of the chicken.
  6. Roast for 50 minutes or an internal temp of 180 is reached for the chicken.
Notes
For Cuisinart Convection Steam oven directions
Place the pieces skin up on top of the green beans and the potatoes to the outside on the boiling/steaming rack fit into the baking pan. Put in the oven with the rack in the lower broil position. Set to bake steam at 450° F for 35 minutes or an reach an internal temperature of 180° F

Using actual lemon slices can make this dish bitter the lemon juice solves this problem.
