This is from Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) The Best Light Recipe. It's shockingly good. The sauce is also fantastic on fish tacos.
EDIT: THIS RECIPE IS AN APPETIZER. It will not magically turn 2lbs of chicken into a full meal for 10 people. You may serve it as a main course, but please adjust your expectations or multiply the measurements.
You will need thirty 6- or 8-inch bamboo (or wooden) skewers for this recipe. The cooking time will depend on the strength and type of your broiler. Under-the-oven drawer-style broilers tend to take a few minutes longer than in-oven-style broilers. A small clove of minced garlic (about 1/2 teaspoon) can be substituted for the garlic powder in the sauce, if desired.
I made this dish to go with lasagna one day,I needed something just a little bit different to add to the dinner in addition to the usual garlic bread and salad. I think they liked this better than the lasagna.
I had this dish for dinner at Longhi's Restaurant in Maui when my husband and I went to Hawaii on vacation recently. My husband had the same dish for dinner a couple of days later, but his was made with scallops instead of shrimp. We both fell in love with it. What's not to love about seafood cooked in a scampi-style sauce then served over garlic toast? The original recipe was developed by Chef and Owner Bob Longhi. I've changed a couple of things to reflect our preferences. And as an aside, be sure not to toast the bread too long, or it becomes too hard and crunchy to eat!
This is as close as I have gotten to the mussels my sister and I got addicted to in Italy this summer. All the recipes I've seen so far lack something, but there are a few distinct flavors: white wine, garlic, olive oil+sea salt or butter. No tomatoes! I could eat this everyday. Make sure you have a nice thick slice of crusty-ish bread on the bottom or side of the bowl, plus tons more for dipping in the leftover steaming liquid!
This is similar to Shepherd's pie! No need to serve up mashed potatoes on the side, as they are baked right on top of the casserole! Prep time includes cooking the potatoes and browning the ground beef. You will LOVE this! Throw in some canned mushrooms also into the beef mixture if desired!
These are the most wonderful potatoes. My family all really love them. How nice to have wonderful and easy in the same recipe. When new potatoes aren't available I have used the bags of very small potatoes available in any supermarket. This recipe is too good to be left for only one time of year!
DH and I have made this dish for dinner on several occasions and think it is delicious. It is another winner from Keiko O Aiko's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." What really makes the dish is the sliced onions--don't be afraid to use more!! One thing to watch out for is that the thin chops tend to dry up quickly and the sauce reduces quickly, which can leave you wanting for more sauce. We have also used thick chops with great results. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).
