Poached Salmon II
My husband and I really enjoyed this one. I skipped the butter to cut calories and accidentally added basil (wasn't paying attention), but it turned out delicious with all 3 spices. Will make again.

Southwest Chicken Bake
This was really good. Had to give it only 4 stars because I really screwed up. I had decided on making this dish early in the day, so by 6:30pm when I started to making it I realized I didn't even have all the ingredients. Argh! So, I improvised and even with my screw up it was so good. I had to use red onion (didn't have green) and I cooked it with the chicken. Then I had no black beans, only non-fat refried. I smothered those on the bottom of the casserole, then topped with the chicken. We love corn so I used closer to 1 cup. Then I realized I only had about 2 Tbs salsa. So I substituted 3/4 a can of diced tomatoes with chili, garlic and cilantro and mixed in some more diced green chilis. Stuck that in the oven, covered. Then to top it off I only had Colby Monterey Jack, not Mexican, and served it over brown rice. But it all worked. You know its a great recipe when you can mess up and it still turns out good. I'm keeping this one for sure!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II
Really moist chicken. We enjoyed the flavor. I did add more water (1 cup), so that I could make a sauce for the pasta I served along side. Wasn't crazy about having to brown the chicken before placing in the slow cooker. I like to just throw everything in & go. I'm wondering if results would be the same if not similar if I just cooked it all up in the saute pan?? I might try it that way next time. Who needs extra dishes to wash anyway?
