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.
Sunday is all about the fams! Whether it’s a trip to the Zoo, strolling through the mall or having fun at the park, Sunday is the one day I don’t want to be in the kitchen! Yesterday, I was able to throw ingredients in the slow cooker and enjoy a day out without worrying about what’s for dinner. Yes, this particular recipe does require some prep work, but trust me it’s worth it. I tried it once without first browning the meat and it was not as tender. After a long day out, it felt great coming home to a delicious home cooked meal. This goes great with leftover challah from Shabbat or fresh pita.
This dish is a fav of both adults and children for it’s creamy goodness. If you want to make it a healthier meal for the fams, throw in broccoli or cauliflower after mixing the cheese in, right before baking it with the crumb topping.
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.
