Ree Drummond's 'Everything' Chicken Is A Wink To Trader Joe's

One of the best ways to make a simple meal a little more satiating? Adding your favorite protein, whether it's beef, tofu, pork, or seitan. Chicken is one of the most versatile proteins to incorporate into a dish. You can add shredded chicken to sandwiches and tacos, poached chicken to salads, and ground chicken to noodles and stews. According to Healthline, three ounces or 85 gramsĀ of chicken breast possesses approximately 24 grams of protein. There are many advantages to incorporating more chicken into your diet, due to its high protein count. Consuming more chicken, along with other high-protein meals, may "enhance feelings of fullness, increase weight loss, and help maintain lean body mass."

If you are a meat eater, having a few go-to easy yet tasty chicken recipes is a must. If you are scrambling for weekday dinner ideas, you can try this grilled chicken recipe or this simple lemon chicken recipe. In an episode of "The Pioneer Woman," Ree Drummond also shared how she makes flavorful chicken cutlets, utilizing one of Trader Joe's bestselling products.

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning gives Ree Drummond's chicken cutlets some extra oomph

If you are a loyal TJ's customer, then you are familiar with its fan-favorite product: Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. This pantry staple has become so synonymous with this discount grocery store that Trader Joe's has come out with numerous spin-off products, including Everything But the Bagel Seasoned Potato Chips and Everything But the Bagel Seasoned Crackers. This special spice includes sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic and onion, and sea salt flakes, as noted by Trader Joe's. It can be used to top grilled chicken, popcorn, potatoes, pizza dough, salad dressings, or "panko-breaded everything," according to this popular chain.

Ree Drummond went with the latter when whipping up a batch of her "Crispy Everything Chicken Cutlets" on "The Pioneer Woman" (via YouTube). After sprinkling some salt and pepper on her chicken breasts, the Oklahoma native coats each one in flour, an egg and milk mixture, and her "crispy coating." The coating includes both panko crumbs and Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. The Pioneer Woman credits this seasoning for giving her cutlets an "amazing flavor."
