Some nights I crave carbs like pizza and pasta. Then there are the nights when all I want is a fresh garden salad topped with juicy slices of perfectly grilled chicken. This marinade blends together some of my favorite ingredients to create a sweetly glazed chicken with a kick of lime.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons honey
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tablespoon of ginger, diced
1 teaspoon Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning.
Combine the olive oil, soy sauce, lime, honey, garlic, ginger and steak seasoning in a large zip lock bag. Place the chicken inside and marinate for several hours. Heat grill pan to medium high and grill chicken for approximately 6 minutes each side, or until juices run clear. Squeeze some fresh lime on top before serving.
My husband loves chicken pot pie however his only reference for it is the frozen kind you find at the supermarket! I knew I had to remedy that and so I called my sister Tova for her easy, classic recipe for creamy chicken pot pie. She uses leftovers from her soup on Sunday night, however I never have leftover soup after shabs, so I cooked chicken breast cut into cubes. If you don’t like the classic veggie mix of peas, carrots and corn you can use broccoli, potatoes and sweet potatoes cooked and cubed. Also, if pressed for time you can throw the mixture into a ready made deep dish pie crust and top with puff pastry.
I’m a hungry mama and winter definitely brings more cravings than my pregnancy did! When it’s cold out, and I’m inside trying to stay warm my body screams for tasty comforting dishes to help fight the winter blues. Creamy Mac and Cheese and Tuna Casserole are just a few of the dishes I have been making in my search for the ultimate comfort food. This recipe for slow cooker Salsa Chicken not only fits the list, it’s also super easy to whip up. I usually reserve my slow cooker for Shabbat cholent, however I decided to bring it out before the weekend for some easy week night cooking.
My husband is often traveling for business and upon his return home, I like to greet him with a nice home cooked meal. Of course this is really dependent on how well my son behaved that day. For if it was one of those hectic counting down to bedtime sort of days, I would sooner order him his fav takeout than enter the kitchen! However; if I have the energy to chop, dice and cook, then I’ll prepare a dish that will allow him to savor the comfort of being back home.
