There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

We have been enjoying this dish for many years. I have served it at my Sunday dinners, more than once. It would be safe to say this is one of our regularly enjoyed dinners. The first time I made up this recipe, I used pork chops, and they were delicious!

Before I knew it, we tried chicken thighs, again, dinner was delicious! Now I make this up from time to time and I usually double the marinade and increase the meat in each packet. That way we have four packages of 6-8 pieces of meat in each packet. There is nothing better than a great dinner and leftovers......the combination of Oregano and mustard, cannot be beaten!

Mustard Oregano Chicken or Chops
adapted from: Fix Freeze and Feast
makes 3 packages of 4 servings

12 large bone-in chicken thighs OR 12 pork loin chops

1/2 c prepared mustard
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/4 lemon juice
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 T honey
3 t dried oregano
3 t minced garlic (about 9 cloves)

Remove skin from chicken, remove excess fat from chops if needed.

Place 4 chops or thighs in three freezer bags, set aside.

Combine all marinade ingredients, mixing well.

Divide between the three (or more) bags.

Seal the bags, removing as much air as possible.

Massage the bag gently to place the marinade over all the surfaces of the meat.

Lay bags flat and smooth into place on a large flat pan. Place in the freezer and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and stack in the freezer as you wish.

To cook:

Outdoor cooking ~
Thaw completely in the refrigerator. Prepare a medium fire in your grill. Cook chops or thighs, turning occasionally until internal temperature is 160 degrees for chops OR 165 degrees for thighs. Remove from heat and let rest 5 minutes before serving

Indoor cooking ~
Arrange chops or thighs on a prepared broiler pan. Broil meat under high heat 5 inched from the heat source, turning frequently for 15-18 minutes or until meat tests "done" with a thermometer, 160 degrees for pork and 165 for chicken. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.

Have a wonderful dinner!
