People love skillet dinners because they’re easy and quick. Chicken and Rice with Tomato Skillet Dinner uses leftover cooked chicken and is made and baked in one pan. Any meal that’s low on the budget and cleanup scale while being high in the flavour department is a winner.
As kids we loved when our mom made Coq au Vin. Because we got to say cock out loud. For the same reason, we were also mesmerized by the musical stylings of Engelbert Humperdinck. But seriously, this classic French dish that translates simply to Chicken in Wine is a delicious slowly braised stew. Surprisingly, the wine used in this recipe is red.
I’m pretty sure there’s nothing authentically Cantonese about these wings, but my mom has been making Cantonese Chicken Wings since we were kids. It’s a simple recipe with just a few ingredients but the result is tasty zesty tender wings. I’m guessing this is one of those women’s magazine recipes but don’t be fooled by the basic ingredients. The flavours really work together. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
I just saw a new product in the grocery store. It’s a frozen Chicken Pot Pie from a certain chain restaurant that sounds like a ski cabin in the alps. I asked one of the staff about it and she said it’s really good. But then I thought a homemade version would be better and probably have a million less grams of sodium. The next day, coincidentally, my neighbour Rob brought over a Pheasant Pot Pie he’d just taken out of the oven. It was incredible. So I’m totally copying his recipe.
These creamy Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas can be made with a deli chicken or leftover turkey. The white beans add some protein and fibre so they move up a notch on the nutritional scale. Every little bit helps! This is Mexican comfort food at its best.
