Grilled Chicken with Pesto and Marinated Tomatoes

Share

 

 

I love quick, flavorful summer meals and this is one of them. I modified the recipe below slightly. It was easy to start with, but I wanted to make it easier so I didn’t bother butterflying/pounding the chicken. I also cheated and bought some pre-made pesto. I dumped the pesto into a bowl, forgot to […]

Chicken Florentine Style

Share

Ok, so this isn’t the best picture, I didn’t arrange the dish very well, but boy was this a great dinner. I can’t wait to make it again. The sauce on the chicken is to die for. I actually wish I had made some extra sauce, it was that good. The shallots, wine and garlic […]

Cajun Jambalaya

Jambalaya, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is derived from the Provençal word ‘jambalaia’ which means mish-mash or mixup. It also means a pilaf of rice.

The other day was cold and damp and I wanted to make some easy comfort food. This recipe fit the bill perfectly. It’s a great one-pot meal that doesn’t take […]

Mitzi's Chicken Fingers

Share

Ok, I’m a little embarrassed to say that these chicken fingers are deep fried, but let me tell you, they are the best chicken fingers I have ever eaten, never-mind made. The seasoning on the chicken is amazing and they’re nice and crunchy. They’re also delicious hot or cold and surprisingly not greasy. Now if […]

Chicken and Dumplings

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. Filling and delicious, it’s pure comfort food that’s great to serve on a chilly evening. We’re finally having some chilly nights here in NYC. We’ve had quite a mild winter so far.

This is a great weeknight meal, although it takes a little bit of time to […]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

Share

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Share

This is a perfect weeknight meal because it doesn’t take very long to assemble and it only cooks for 35 minutes. The secret is buying a rotisserie chicken that’s already cooked. The meat practically falls off the bone, so it’s very easy to shred. The only step that really […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I went shopping to buy the ingredients for my mom’s summer pies. As I was standing in line with a basket full of fruit, heavy cream and cream cheese, the woman behind me asked me what I was going to make. I told her about my mom’s pies which are […]

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

The recipe for this salad came to me in a weekly email full of recipes that I receive from Saveur magazine. This chicken salad is very similar to one that my mother made when I was growing up. We usually had it when company came over. It was […]

Chinese Chicken Salad

Share

As I’ve mentioned before, I love recipes by Ina Garten and this one is no exception. It’s a very different take on chicken salad. The dressing has a nice Asian flavor. I have made the salad a couple of times now, and this last time I used hot chili sesame […]
