111. Twenty-Minute Chicken

leave a comment »

Recipe source:

If you like mushrooms – and I mean really, really like mushrooms – you’ll like this. It also has a healthy topping of mozzarella cheese on top, and that always makes supper better.

It’s simple and quick to put together, and it tastes good. The name is a bit misleading, in my opinion. I buy big chickens, and it takes longer than 20 minutes for this dish to cook. But, it’s so easy, I don’t mind the extra time.

I served it with a made-from-a-box porcini risotto.

110. pesto chicken and pickled beets

leave a comment »

Recipe source: for the chicken; for the beets

This was very good. We used pesto that I made this summer with basil from BP’s garden, and the beets also were from BP’s garden. It was the first jar we’ve used from our stash.

The chicken dish especially caught my eye because it not only used pesto but it also used pancetta, which is always delicious.

103. go green chicken sammies

Recipe source: Rachael Ray magazine

When God created the avocado, He knew what He was doing. It is the perfect texture and has just the right flavor to make any meal better.

BP requested these yummy sandwiches, which I had made once before a couple of years ago.

These sandwiches are fresh tasting with a little bit of a kick from the jalapenos, red onion and pepper jack cheese. Definitely a good, fresh meal to enjoy prior to three days of Thanksgiving lunches and suppers coming up this week!

101. penne with chicken and pesto

Recipe source:

Even though this dish goes together really quickly, it still has that restaurant-quality taste.

I used pesto that I made this summer (using basil from our garden) and froze.

100. Colleen’s slow cooker jambalaya

leave a comment »

Recipe source:

I do not know Colleen, but she makes a mean jambalaya.

This was very good, but mine was definitely too spicy – the kind of spicy that makes your nostrils burn when you smell it.

Next time, I’ll choose a milder sausage and cut down on the cayenne pepper.

96. tangy chicken fajitas

leave a comment »

Recipe source: See post #48

Well, it finally happened. I duplicated a recipe I already made this year.

I hadn’t been to the grocery store. I had some chicken in the freezer, tortillas and sour cream in the refrigerator and a couple of late-season green peppers BP pulled from the garden sitting on the counter.

I knew I could throw this meal together in a matter of minutes, and it was something we would actually enjoy eating!

95. broiled chicken and steamed broccoli

leave a comment »

Okay, so my time spent in the kitchen has been dismal. Life has been busy. Evenings have not been spent at home.

BP and I have resorted to far too many pre-prepared meals than we care to acknowledge.

So, I finally pulled together a home-cooked (though admittedly a little boring) meal that was both (mostly) healthy and tasted good.

I simply broiled the chicken (about 10 minutes each side), which we topped with spicy pineapple rum sauce from The Pampered Chef, and served it alongside pure, classic steamed broccoli.

The pineapple sauce also tastes good poured on top of cream cheese and served with crackers. (And yes, we ate that as a meal one evening recently. It’s something I do not recommend. It’s not good for you.)
