3 tablespoons oil
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 tablespoon ginger diced
1 tsp. chopped chili
1 lb. chicken breast cut into chunks
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoons corn starch
In a small bowl combine the above ingredients and mix well to dissolve corn starch.
Heat a wok or frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil and saute onion, ginger, garlic, and chili pepper until tender. Add chicken chunks to pan and cook until no longer pink. Once cooked, remove chicken and onions from pan and set aside. Add 2 tablespoons oil to pan and saute mushrooms until soft then add the chicken back to the pan and mix with the mushrooms. Slowly pour sauce over chicken and mushrooms and stir together until sauce thickens. Serve over steamed broccoli or rice.
*Tips & Tricks: If you don’t have fresh ginger you can use ginger powder instead. Just add it in the sauce. You can swap mushrooms for any of your favorite stir fry veggies!
1 whole chicken cut into 8 pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt & pepper
1 onion cut into thin slices
3 cloves of garlic diced
1 cup of seedless raspberry jelly
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
Wash and clean chicken pieces. Pat dry with paper towels. Place the chicken in a large ziplock bag with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes. Put chicken in a large baking pan and fill the pan up slightly with water. Cover with foil and cook in oven on 400′ for an hour. While the chicken cooks, saute onion and garlic in a pot on the stove. Once golden and tender add the raspberry preserves and stir until smooth. Add the balsamic vinegar and stir together. Cook until boils. Uncover chicken and pour some of the glaze on. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. Once cooked you can glaze again with raspberry sauce if desired.
Tips/Tricks:I saved some of the sauce to serve with steamed green beans. Simply steam the green beans, then toss with 1 tablespoon of the raspberry glaze.
This is a great recipe for Meatless Monday! I also included it in the Passover section since many people eat Quinoa on the holiday. Please note, that not everyone eats Quinoa on Passover and you should consult your Rabbi before deciding what your customs will be for the holiday.
Ingredients for Meatballs:
1 small onion diced
3 cloves of garlc diced
1 8ox package of mushrooms diced
Salt and pepper for seasoning
2 cups of cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil
Egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon water mixed together. If you want to keep this recipe vegan, you can use PAM or egg substitute instead)
These came about by accident, as I had leftover taco meat from dinner and decided to use them along with some ravioli dough that I had in the freezer. I have used both ravioli dough as well as wonton dough for this recipe and both came out great. The dough gets nice and crispy in the oven which makes these taste like real tacos!
1/2 pound ground beef
1 package of taco seasoning
I package of frozen ravioli dough pre-cut into circles, defrosted OR 1 package of wonton wrappers
Brown beef, then add taco seasoning. Cook for an additional 10-15. While the meat cooks, cut out circles of dough if using wonton wrappers and place onto slightly greased baking sheet. (If you are using ravioli dough that is pre cut into circles, place them on a slightly greased baking sheet.) Wet the dough with some water then place 1 tsp. of taco meat filling in center of each ravioli circle. Pinch the sides together, forming a triangle. If it won’t stick together, wet it again, this helps it stick together. Bake in oven on 350′ for 10 to 15 minutes until golden and slightly crispy. Serve them with all of your favorite taco toppings such as guacamole, salsa and shredded cabbage.
1 cup of quinoa, uncooked
2 cups of vegetable broth, chicken broth or water
1 onion, diced

1/2 cup of bread crumbs plus more for topping

5. In a large frying pan, saute the diced onion and 4 garlic cloves until tender. Add the can of diced tomatoes, chopped mushrooms, chopped parsley and salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes.

8. Place in a greased baking dish, and fill the center of each chicken cutlet with the quinoa mixture, then fold over in half so the quinoa mixture is covered.
9. Drizzle tomato sauce on top of stuffed chicken, or spread honey mustard on top of chicken, then sprinkle bread crumbs on top.
10. Bake, covered with foil in oven on 400′ for 30-45 minutes until cooked through.
