Sweet and Spicy Roast Chicken

Sweet and Spicy Roast Chicken

This Sweet and Spicy Roast Chicken has a chile-flecked, honey-imbued marinade spiked with fresh citrus juice gives this chicken its fiery, syrupy character. Dates and carrots give the sauce texture and additional sweetness while a garnish of fresh herbs and pistachio nuts lends freshness and crunch. The ingredients can be assembled up to 24 hours in advance, then all you need to do is pop it in the oven just before your guests arrive, and garnish it at the last minute. Serve it with couscous, polenta, rice or another soft grain to soak up the sauce.

Roasted Chicken Breasts with Grapes and Sherry Vinegar

Roasted Chicken Breasts with Grapes and Sherry Vinegar is very tangy and flavorful. Sherry vinegar is made from sherry wine, which is produced in the Jerez (Xérès or Sherry) denomination of origin in southwestern Spain. The unusual thing about the vinegar (and the wine) is that it’s aged and blended so that younger vinegar picks up the characteristics of the older vinegar: complex, harmonious, deep, rich, nutty, slightly sweet, and very sharp. Sherry vinegar has no true substitute.

Lemon Mushroom Chicken

I am having a hard time adjusting to being an "empty nester". The only good thing is that I can make things the girls hate, like mushrooms! This delicious creamy lemony chicken is prepared in a skillet and sautéed with mushrooms. This is pretty much a chicken piccata, but without capers and with mushrooms.
