Steak Fajitas

Intensely flavorful and spicy but not too hot, these steak fajitas are ready fast. I’ve got nothing against marinating the meat before cooking, but if you forget to marinate, like I did today, worry not – simply season the beef and the vegetables well, saute them quickly, and these steak fajitas will turn out just as delicious and flavorful as fajitas made with marinated steak.

Moo Shu Chicken

My interpretation of moo shu chicken uses shredded, pre-cooked chicken. The flavor combination is amazing and I’m glad about my last-minute decision to add red pepper flakes. I made this dish for lunch today because I had some leftover chicken and pre-shredded coleslaw mix that I wanted to use up. As with most stir-fry recipes, the cooking itself is very quick – it’s the prep that takes most of the time. Click for the recipe

pulled chicken

This incredibly flavorful pulled chicken is spicy and tangy, with just a hint of sweetness. It’s amazing on top of shredded cabbage – the combination of the warm, spicy shredded meat and the cool, crunchy cabbage is delightful. Obviously, you could also serve this pulled chicken over rice, or in a bun, but I highly recommend trying shredded cabbage! Click for the recipe

Chicken Stroganoff

I wanted to make beef stroganoff, but all I had in the fridge were boneless skinless chicken breasts. So I thought, how bad could it be – succulent chicken breast cubes cooked in a delicious sauce of onions, mushrooms and sour cream?

Indeed, chicken stroganoff turned out to be a delicious dish. As per usual, I don’t serve it over noodles – it’s good on cauliflower rice, on shredded lettuce or cabbage, and it’s also very good on its own. Click for the recipe

Pesto Chicken

Whenever I have leftover fresh basil leaves, I use them to make pesto sauce, then search for ways to use it. Pesto sauce keeps for a few days in the fridge, and for about a month in the freezer, but it doesn’t last forever – and it’s way too delicious to throw out.

Tonight, staring at the chicken breasts in my fridge and trying to decide what to do with them, it occurred to me that I could use my basic recipe for juicy baked chicken breast and adjust it to include pesto. The result was delicious. As it turns out, pesto goes incredibly well with chicken! I also love how easy this recipe is- it’s perfect for a weekday dinner. Click for the recipe

Paprika Chicken

Paprika chicken – an easy, tasty dish that practically bakes itself, simply throw everything in the pan and forget about it until it’s done. The chicken comes out incredibly juicy and flavorful, and the onions and olives add flavor and depth to this simple, rustic dish. Click for the recipe
