Easy Oven Brown Rice
I used 2 cups of rice, 4 cups of water, and 1 Tbsp of butter. It was perfectly done after 60 minutes and I always have trouble cooking brown rice.

African Chicken Stew
Changes: I used 3 lbs of chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken, added 2 sliced carrots at the same time as the onion and potatoes, and used an extra half teaspoon of cumin and a squeeze of lime instead of the coriander because I didn't have any. I found it needed just a little extra pop: I topped it with fresh cilantro and just a touch more salt. It also was a bit too peanutty, and I think I will cut the peanut butter to half a cup next time like others. We didn't feel that the potatoes added anything in this, and next time I'm going to omit them or use a sweet potato instead and some diced red bell pepper, and keep the carrot. My bf liked it over brown rice, but personally I found it a bit starchy that way and I think I will serve it over steamed spinach next time. Don't misunderstand me: it's a lovely rich, creamy, luxurious dish and I very much enjoyed it, but for me I think a little bite of the spinach will make it a little more balanced and make the creaminess even more enjoyable.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid
We really enjoyed this. My guy kept saying "wow this is so good" over and over while he was eating. I think it's a very adaptable meal (and the other reviews would imply this too.) I halved the recipe for the two of us, used just a couple of tablespoons of reduced fat mayo, and subbed pecans for the almonds and low fat crescent rolls. I used a yellow bell pepper because our market had some beautiful yellow ones and the red ones looked pretty sad, and a higher proportion of broccoli. 1 half of a chicken breast fed both of us, and it was really delicious. I used a bit less dill too.
