Moroccan Chicken

Recipes posted a year ago:

The best part about having a slow cooker is that you can toss a bunch of ingredients into it in the morning, and when you get home you’ve got a tasty one-pot meal ready to eat.  This was exactly what I did this past Sunday, when I knew I’d be out running errands most of the day.

Basil Roasted Chicken and Squash

Recipes posted a year ago:

This recipe came about while we were recently on vacation in sunny Arizona (where we were able to get plenty of Vitamin D).  We had the opportunity to spend a week with Karen’s parents in a vacation condo – which afforded us the chance to cook our own meals instead of spending a week eating at restaurants.  We made a point to bring a handful of different spices with us, and then made a stop at the local grocery store as soon as we had checked into our condo to stock up the fridge.  After a lazy morning followed by an afternoon at the pool, we threw this together in just a short time (aside from the time in the oven).

Chicken Fajitas

Recipes posted a year ago:

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo – so what better recipe to post today than one inspired by the great flavors of Mexican and Southwest cuisine.  While purists may complain that fajita traditionally refers to a specific cut of beef, no one can argue that the word today has been broadened to include any number of meats seasoned, grilled, and mixed with sautéed bell peppers and onions and served with a healthy helping of guacamole.

This recipe needs to marinate overnight, so you’ll want to run out and get the ingredients today so that you can have these ready to serve at your fiesta tomorrow!

Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

Coconut ‘Yogurt’ Chicken Skewers

Recipes posted a year ago:

These grilled chicken skewers have a great mix of flavors, and the prep is really easy.  If you don’t have metal skewers, then be sure to soak your bamboo skewers at least 30 minutes prior to using so they won’t burn when on the grill.

Bengali Roasted Chicken

This recipe uses a unique blend of ingredients common to the Bangladesh area with a mixture of veggies and sweet potatoes to make a complete meal.  Roasted in a very hot oven, the yogurt sauce reduces down to a thick glaze coating.  This recipe will make a lot, so you’ll have plenty for leftovers, or enough for about 6 adults for dinner.  Set aside a few hours for preparing and marinading before cooking, and then about an hour to cook before serving.
