ingredients. Seal very well…this one tends to leak! Place large roast bag and sauce bag into
another gallon sized freezer bag and seal well. Freeze.
Thaw completely (will take at least a couple days in the fridge). Remove sauce bag and place
ingredients into a small saucepan. Boil sauce for about 2 min. and set aside. Place roast (fat
side up) in a large roasting pan (or 9 x 13 baking dish) and bake at 325 for about 2 hours (until
internal temp. is 185). In last 15 minutes of baking, brush roast with some of the sauce. Slice

Chili Cheese Chicken Bake
4-6 chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp Wildtree Red Bell Pepper & Garlic Blend
2 tsp Wildtree Leslie’s Chili Mix
1 tsp Wildtree Lemon Pepper Blend
1 tsp salt
At Cooking Time:
1 cup corn chips (Fritos), crushed -OR- 1 cup Japanese bread crumbs (Panko)
1 tsp Wildtree Leslie’s Chili Mix
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend)

Bake uncovered at 350 for 20-30 minutes (until cooked throughout), turning once. Cover with
corn chip/chili cheese mixture and bake an additional 10 minutes.
(For chicken that is a bit more moist, you can spoon some of the marinade on top of the
chicken, but understand that the buttermilk in the marinade tends to coagulate a bit. That’s
not a problem, but some people do not like the way it looks. It also can make the crumb
topping a bit soft.)

Savory Barley Casserole
(Double amounts for a 9x13 dish)
1 cup barley
¼ cup butter
1 cup sliced mushrooms
4 green onions, thinly sliced – including green stems
1 cup almonds, sliced
1 Tbsp Wildtree Onion & Chive Blend
1 tsp Wildtree Java Rub
2¼ cups chicken broth
2 Tbsp cooking sherry (optional) – if not using, add 2 more Tbsp water
PLAN AHEAD when preparing this dish – it bakes a long time…so if you are also baking a
main dish, the timing can be tricky, or having enough room in the oven can be an issue. If you
can’t fit both main dish and barley casserole in oven, we would suggest cooking barley first,
(or even a day ahead) then setting aside when baking main dish. This casserole is easily reheated, in oven or microwave (It’s one of those recipes that tastes even better as leftovers!)
**In lg. skillet, brown barley in butter on med. heat for about 3 minutes (until barley starts
turning golden brown). Add mushrooms, almonds, and green onions and cook one more
minute. Pour into a greased casserole dish and add other ingredients. Bake (covered) at 350
for 1½ hours, stirring once or twice while cooking.
