Instant Pot Butter Chicken

  Last fall I purchased the Instant Pot after hearing about it from a friend. Apparently, it is all the rage with Indian professional women who want to prepare Indian food for their families after a full day of work (who knew?).  My mom made Indian meals almost nightly after a full work day when […]

Skillet-Roasted Lemon Chicken

So I got myself this cookbook for my birthday recently and thought I’d cook through it over Christmas break.  It ended up being a busy time so I didn’t get too far into it but I did have a chance to try this recipe.  We eat a lot of whole chickens in our home.  It tends […]

My New Favorite Roast Chicken

I make roast chicken.  A lot.  It’s a weekly menu fare around our house, usually on Friday nights.  Some think it’s daunting to put a whole bird into the oven but I love that after it’s prepped, you can stick it in the oven and walk away.  I’ve made Ina’s roast chicken and Lucinda’s roast […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

I realize it’s been eons since I’ve last posted a recipe.  Truth is life with three kids has turned my world topsy turvy.  Between chauffeuring kids to and from places, an almost 6 month old that requires her mother around the clock, buckets of laundry, keeping house, etc, blogging has taken a backseat.  But that doesn’t […]

Pesto Chicken Burgers

I found this recipe in my latest edition of Everyday Food. It looked easy enough and I had a few of the ingredients already on hand…love when that happens!  I was able to use fresh basil from my garden (love summertime!), the fresh mozzarella was on sale at Whole Foods and I swapped the focaccia […]

Baked Chicken Fingers

Who doesn’t love chicken fingers?  I realize it’s a very kid friendly food but secretly, we adults love them too.  I’ve done different variations of chicken fingers in the past but when I ran across this recipe where the panko crumbs were already toasted, I knew I had a winner.  My kids enjoyed it although […]

Chicken Koftas

This is a quick and easy weeknight supper.  The chicken has only a few ingredients and the pitas are easy to assemble.  I have only used ground chicken but ground lamb would be a yummier and more authentic substitution.  I served the koftas along with baby carrots and baked steak fries.  If you don’t want […]

Homemade Chicken Stock

I don’t throw a lot of food out.  It probably has much to do with how I was raised.  I feel terrible when I throw out a moldy piece of cheese (especially if I paid quite a bit for it) or produce that is looking less than prime.  This recipe is my best attempt to […]

Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

I’ve made enchiladas before but I’ve never tried one with green sauce.  You know, green from tomatillos and green chiles.  I’ve actually never tried tomatillos before but I really loved their tartness.  If you can’t find them, feel free to substitute green tomatoes.  (I actually added a few green tomatoes from my garden and it […]
