Simple Roast Chicken

Yield: 1 3- or 4-pound roasted chicken feeds 4 This recipe is super simple. If you’ve never roasted a chicken, you must try it.  Leftovers are great for soup, salads, or again for dinner!

Grilled Chicken with Mango-Sesame Sauce

Yield: 4 servings This Mango-Sesame Sauce has become a family favorite. I especially like it because it relies on pantry staples. In a pinch, I have substituted apricot preserves for the mango chutney and it was equally as delicious. This sauce also works well with grilled vegetables and salmon. Pass any extra sauce at mealtime for dipping. […]

Turkey Meatballs with Pesto

Yield: 2 servings (about 8 meatballs) These tasty meatballs come together quickly; I consider this week-night material. The pesto packs such a flavor punch, you won’t miss the fat typically found in the beef version. I doubled everything in this recipe but used just one egg (or rather, flax meal/water substitute for a dairy-free version). It worked just fine. If […]

Chicken with Dijon, Sage, and Parmesan

Yield: 4 servings Dijon mustard is a common – and tastey! – pairing with meat, poultry, and fish.

Ingredients: 1 cup Panko bread crumbs 2 teaspoons dried rubbed sage 3/4 […]
