Easy, pretty and company-worthy, seriously.

I added green and red peppers to my skewers, and next time, I also will add pineapple chunks.

BP really liked these, too!

Healthy, quick and delicious? Yes!

These open-faced veggie melts are going directly on the Make Again list.

Dad, BP and I all gave these two thumbs up, and the portobellos made the meal super filling, too. This is a great way to get your vegetables.

40. roast chicken with balsamic bell peppers

Recipe source: Cooking Light, January/February 2010

Last week, BP and my schedules were crazy full, and I failed miserably at planning healthy meals for us to enjoy during the 30 minutes of meal time we had on any given night, and so we resorted to pizza and pizza again and leftover pizza and leftover pizza again.

We live beside a pizza shop, and they had a buy-one-get-one special, which we felt was the economical way to go since we could eat the leftovers again and again and again. In hindsight, not such a great idea.

By today, all I really wanted was a good, home-cooked meal. I was excited to get home from work and into the kitchen. It was worth the wait.

With balsamic vinegar and bell peppers, you pretty much can’t go wrong. And this wasn’t wrong. It was so right.

I also made mashed potatoes to go with the chicken and peppers. They were okay, but nothing special – basic boiled potatoes, some cream cheese, salt and pepper.

35. one-pot paprika chicken with potatoes

Simple and easy, this was a very good meal that I will make again.

The red pepper added to the vegetables gave it just the right boost of flavor, and the chicken came out just perfect.

As an added bonus, I used my new old cast iron Dutch oven! It was super swell. If you don’t have one, I suggest you find one – or find a really, really nice coworker who is willing to give you one.
