Chicken Picante

By Heather Solos | March 11, 2008

Heather says: Way back, a hundred years ago, I used to work for a Spanish restaurant. Yes, Spanish as in Spain. One of our top selling lunch dishes was very simple and not exactly Spanish, it was a variation on fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and sweet peppers. My husband requested this dish so often that…

Chicken, Roasted and Marinated in Balsamic

By Heather Solos | January 20, 2010

Heather says: This recipe for roast chicken tastes like effort marinated in herbs and vinegar. Really, it’s a throw together and toss in the oven kind of dish.  I won’t tell if you don’t, sometimes I like to pretend I’m working harder than I am. The chicken can be set to marinate the night before…

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | April 9, 2013

Heather says: This recipe for balsamic marinated chicken is sort of a repeat. Why? Because sometimes you don’t want to cook a whole chicken and grab the super-value pack of chicken thighs or leg quarters when they go on sale. Like the garlic and soy chicken thighs, this recipe is simple, the only drawback is…

    @ajacksonmom That sounds wonderful. I just use this technique for dumplings: http://www.home-ec101.com/how-to-make-drop-dumplings/ and drop them into a regular chicken soup

    We love your chicken pot pie! Thank you for the recipe!! Do you have a chicken and dumplings recipe?

    Small addition to the pot pie: I’ve been adding one boiled egg and one small or med. sized red potato boiled and cut up. Yum!
