Fajita Seasoning
I make something very similar, almost the same really, but I add powdered chicken broth. I use this as a base for seasoning almost everything I make: Add a little herbage, basil, oregano, etc and you can adapt it to chicken fish, almost anything. It's very similar to Emeril's "essence" and that gives you a clue as to where he got it.

Chef John's Empty Mayo Jar Dressing
Great way to use up what is basically something unusable. One reviewer stated they didn't know what herbs de provence was, and asked for "normal ingredients". This is what's wrong with society today

Easy Chicken Cutlets with Apples
Good recipe with just a little modification. There's really no point in salting and refrigerating the breasts, it does nothing but make it too salty. Skipped. Marsala is rare here in Mexico, so I used a Riesling, as other reviewers did, and it turned out fine. Also cut down on the brown sugar, and added a bit of corn starch to thicken sauce. My wife likes dishes a little sweet, and we both liked it.
