Italian Marinated Chicken
thank you for the stove top version of this italian marinated chicken. it is excellent for a hot day when you don't want to grill or warm up the kitchen with the oven. i used non fat italian dressing and it still tasted fabulous. also after i have taken the chicken breast out to rest, i tossed into the pan, some cut up button mushroom and sauteed it. i also added a bit of water and more italian dressing and drizzled the mushroom/gravy over the chicken. bf and i really enjoyed it.

Blackened Fish
great recipe, made it yesterday and it was a hit with everyone. i fell in love with blackened fish when i first had it at cracker barrel and it tastes just like it! i served it up with some wilted spinach, which in retrospect would have tasted better on a bed of rice. i also added garlic powder and used seasoned salt, it was very flavourful. i did not use a cast iron pan but just panfried it on a skillet with a little bit of vegetable oil. i am sure with a cast iron it would have tasted even better! thanks for the recipe! this one is a keeper!

Singaporean Chile Crab
Thank you for the recipe. It was very good and just as I remembered it in Malaysia! I didn't have any cili padi, so I used habanero instead. And I left out the lemon juice, just because i didn't have any. It still tasted food though!
