Crispy Sheet Pan Lemon Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Potatoes & Green Beans

My daughter Grace made dinner. She made this Crispy Sheet Pan Lemon Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Potatoes & Green Beans. Unfortunately, my husband and I had to go out, so we missed it. I will ask her to make it again! I love sheet pan dinners, perfect for a busy weeknight.

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

This Chicken and Sausage Gumbo recipe is relatively quick to pull together compared to most traditional recipes. After preparing the roux, most of the time spent making gumbo is basically hands-free. You’ll just need to stir the pot occasionally to prevent sticking. You can serve it over rice for a complete meal and freeze the leftovers in gallon-size freezer bags. If there are any leftovers! Here is the recipe.

Chi Cheese Quesadilla

Sadly, our local go-to Mexican restaurant is closing in a few days. One of my favorite items on the menu:
Chi Cheese Quesadilla - char-broiled chicken or carne asada, spiced with our chipotle chile and barbecue sauce. I guess I now have to start making it at home.

One Pot Harissa Chicken with Chickpeas and Yogurt

This One Pot Harissa Chicken with Chickpeas and Yogurt is a fuss-free dish that’s easy to make at home. Spicy, fragrant harissa reduces and coats the chicken and chickpeas as they roast, and a creamy yogurt harissa sauce finishes it all off. Harissa is what my husband calls the ketchup of north Africa. Harissa is a Tunisian hot chili pepper paste made with roasted red peppers, serrano peppers and other hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic paste, coriander seed, or caraway as well as some vegetable or olive oil for preservation. It's so good, I can't wait to make it again!

Chicken Scaloppine with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce

Scaloppine is meat that is flattened by pounding and usually dredged in flour or breadcrumbs. My friend Barbee saw this Chicken Scaloppine with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce on The Chew and said it was the best chicken she had ever made or eaten! I have to agree with her, it's a winner.

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.
