This recipe really satisfies my craving for Chinese food. I serve it over rice and steamed vegetables on the side. The sauce makes just enough to glaze the chicken. I usually double or even triple the sauce recipe to have enough to pour over our rice and veggies. It is a nice low-fat alternative to the restaurant-style Sesame Chicken.
I have been making this for over 10 years and is the most requested recipe I have! This is everyone's favorite chicken dish I make! It's a nice change from "ordinary" chicken! Goes well with steamed broccoli. (Note: This is a "Diane" recipe, therefore has a mustard taste to it!!)
Nice, fresh-tasting dish that comes together in a snap. Make it even quicker by preparing the chile lime butter ahead of time. It can be made 1 day ahead, covered and chilled. Just make sure to bring to room temperature before using. I like this served atop jasmine rice. -adapted from Gourmet
Romantic little recipe for two that wont leave you too full to flirt!
Yummy garlic and wine sauce coat the shrimp and pasta. A salad and some crusty fresh bread would be very nice with this and a nice chablis or chardonnay wouldn't hurt either!
I came up with this after totally revamping a recipe found on healthycookingrecipes.com.
"PLEASE adjust the seasonings to make it perfect for you and DO let me know how you change it up."
UPDATE! As listed yes the portion is quite large as you would find in a restaurant. Feel free to reduce the amount of pasta to save calories. We always have leftovers which is fine by me! I remove the shrimp to reheat. Zap pasta in micro for a few minutes then add the shrimp on top for about 20 seconds to remove the chill! Also feel free to experiment! More tomatoes, canned tomatoes (just use organic or add a pinch of sugar) less red pepper, more red pepper. You get the idea. Enjoy!
Prep time approx. 40 min (I found this in the May 2003 Canadian Living Magazine) This is a quick and easy recipe. Garlic becomes mellow when roasted,(so don't let 12 cloves scare you away) and roasting the tomatoes brings out the rich flavor. The two compliment each other. Using cherry tomatoes saves time so if you use other kinds of tomatoes it may take longer. I have two kids age 11 and 14 who love this recipe and always have more than one helping.
I was trying to think of ways to make my OAMC recipes for crock pot use...you know they sell those crock pot box recipes at the grocery now. This is one of the ones I found that work and is simple. There may still be some fiddling but it's pretty good as is. Hope you will give it a try.
I like to think of this vegetarian dish as Egyptian-style chilli. I was first introduced to it during a trip to Egypt four years ago, where it was nearly all we ate for a week! It's served in "fast food" type restaurants, sold from carts by street vendors and made in the home. There can be many variations, but this is close to the one I grew to love. By the way, this is a great recipe when you need to feed a crowd on the cheap.
This has to be the most requested recipe in my way-too-vast collection. It comes from Chiffonade Chef on the FC site, and she submitted it to Gourmet magazine some years ago. It was accepted and printed almost immediately. It's so easy, and so tasty, you will see why.
Yesterday was my turn to bring snacks to my Cuban salsa class -- the dance that is. After scanning dozens of recipes, I couldn't find what I wanted so I created this one. After watching my classmates tip the bowl, I decided it was worth posting. While the ingredients are familiar, the ratio of tomatoes, beans and corn is quite different from the dozens already here. So easy, its a crowd pleaser.
