Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
My chicken was tender and juicy because I decided to bake 3 (large/thick) boneless breasts in a 11X7 baking dish with minced garlic and sprinkled with garlic salt and pepper. I covered it loosely with foil and baked it at 375 degrees for about 35-40 minutes (keeping the juices to add to the brown rice I had in the fridge). I let them set for about 10 minutes on a cutting board before cutting them in 1/4-1/2" strips and shredding the strips with my fingers into bite-size pieces. I didn't change the sauce much, but I did double the recipe. I used low-sodium soy sauce, Frank's Thick Hot Sauce and then added a tsp. of the Chili Garlic Sauce with the rooster on the bottle. I also added about 1/4 cup of orange juice. I cut a red pepper into slices and added some broccoli florets and I threw them into a large hot skillet that I had sprinkled sesame seed oil in (almost enough to cover the bottom). I tossed the veggies around the hot skillet for about 4 minutes or so til the broccoli florets were bright green. Then I added the chicken strips and the sauce and let it get bubbly hot. I then mixed about a tbsp. of cornstarch with a 1/3 cup of orange juice, stirred it until smooth and added it to the pan, stirring til the sauce thickened. Wow! Yummy! I added the juices from the chicken to the brown rice in the same baking dish and warmed it in the oven while I was making the sauce etc., and it was really delicious when we added the chicken & veggie combo over the top of it.

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Very good! The corned beef was so tender. (I cooked it on low for about 8 hrs.) The only trouble I had was trying to fit everything into my slow cooker, which is a large, oblong cooker. I had to put several potatoes, part of an onion and half of the cabbage in a pan on the stove. I used a little water and some of the juices from the slow cooker, which almost reached the top rim of the cooker by then. I simmered the extras on low for the last hour or so. I'm actually glad I had to cook most of the cabbage on the stove because the cabbage that was in the slow cooker cooked down to practically nothing. The carrots were the biggest surprise! They were so incredibly sweet, I was wishing I'd added more! Everyone enjoyed the meal very much!

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I really liked this recipe, especially because it's just so different from the usual chicken dish. I forgot to buy the rotelle pasta, which would have been perfect for this dish, so I had to use something else I had handy. I'm sure I'll make this dish again.

Speedy Pear and Pecan Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Delicious! I changed it quite a bit by using Gorgonzola cheese, toasting the pecans, using a red pear and a green one and adding sliced strawberries and Craisins, since they were handy. The dressing I used was Strawberry Chardonnay by Marzetti, which is the best fruity dressing I've ever tasted. Oh, for the greens, I used mainly baby spinach and added green leaf lettuce to that.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Tasty and easy! The only think I did differently was add a chopped green onion - about a tbsp. worth.
