Five-Spice Chicken Noodle Salad

August 17, 2010 | By andrea | 5 Comments | Filed in: Asian, Grilling/BBQ, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Salad.

  This is a great summer recipe because it’s light, cool and refreshing. Be liberal with your use of the fresh mint and cilantro…it brings a ton of flavor to the salad! I’ve made this salad with different types of rice noodles, and rice sticks work as well as rice vermicelli. Whatever type of rice noodles you • Read More »

I know it’s officially Spring but it’s still soup weather here in the Pacific Northwest. I made this delicious and healthy Chicken and Vegetable Minestrone recently to combat the chilly weather. It was exactly what I was craving! I substituted white beans for the garbanzo beans (chickpeas), 1 can of diced tomatoes for the fresh • Read More »

Chicken Mole with Chipotles

March 19, 2010 | By andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in: Chicken, Chocolate, Main Dish, Mexican, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Soup/Stew.

Mole, a Mexican specialty, is a rich, thick sauce with complex flavors. It is usually labor-intensive and includes a long list of ingredients. This quick version of a mole (pronounced MOH-lay) uses canned chipotle chilies and diced tomatoes to form the sauce for tender chunks of chicken. The smoky, spicy sauce includes chocolate, an ingredient commonly found in some moles. • Read More »

Chicken Curry Soup with Coconut and Lime

December 29, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Chicken Curry Soup with Coconut and Lime | Filed in: Asian, Chicken, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Soup/Stew.

  Here’s a quick curry-flavored soup that is delicious and easy to make. You can even change up the flavors each time you make it by using different curries. I used curry powder this time (doubling the amount called for); next time I’ll try red, green or yellow Thai curry paste. Although the soup would be • Read More »

Hot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

December 28, 2009 | By andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in: Chicken, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich.

If you like Buffalo Chicken Wings, you’re going to love these sandwiches! They’re easy to make, delicious and way more satisfying than those scrawny little chicken wings. I love the spicy red pepper sauce that coats the tender chicken breasts, and the tangy, extremely flavorful blue cheese spread that gets slathered on the bun tops. Basically, this sandwich ROCKS! I pretty much followed • Read More »

Pumpkin-Turkey Goulash with Caraway Noodles

November 14, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Pumpkin-Turkey Goulash with Caraway Noodles | Filed in: Chicken, Main Dish, Pasta, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Turkey.

I have to admit that this recipe sounds a little weird. It was originally published in an October issue of Bon Appetit a few years ago and referred to as “ghoulash”, a play on the word goulash. I ran across it when I was looking for a savory recipe that used canned pumpkin. Since I had everything • Read More »
