Quick dinners, that are bursting with flavor, are something we all need. Only when I’m forced into eating quick on the road, do I opt for fast food and then I feel guilty. I prefer to make my own fast food and that is what this post is all about. I like to know I’m eating good, healthy food.
When the first snowflakes fall and the wind starts to blow, I get a huge craving for comfort food. I had a big package of chicken thighs in the refrigerator (I think I had chicken and noodles on my mind already) so I grabbed them and I was on my way, turning them into this casserole.
Football season is in full swing and that means that tailgate foods are in high demand around my house. Saturday the weather was nice enough to grill some wings, so I made one of our very favorite recipes. Tropical Hot Wings are full of great flavor and combine sweet, salty and hot. It’s a recipe I have made for over ten years and have many great memories associated with it.
Sage, rosemary and thyme are an unbeatable combination of flavors. I used chicken breasts with the skin and bones for this recipe. There’s a reason, I wanted the skin to hold my herbs and garlic in place and I wanted the chicken drippings to make a fantastic sauce. I also sliced a lemon and laid the slices on the breasts.
Fresh cooking, doesn’t that just sound great? This is one of those flavorful fresh dinners. Chicken Cacciatore is a common dinner at the time of year when there are good fresh local tomatoes at the markets around me.
This year I grew my own, I put some in my flower bed and have containers of herbs on my deck. If you can get your hands on some, you should make this. If you can’t, then do the next best thing and use good quality canned tomatoes…But either way, definitely make this. You won’t be sorry, I promise!
