4 words that sound beautiful together: ‘Chicken Enchilada Quinoa Bake’

   July 23, 2014 11:13 am    0

Sometimes, I just don’t feel like remembering/digging for an old recipe on a weeknight. It’s really much easier to just find a new one. They roll through my life like tires down a hill and I can’t catch most of them. When I’m vigilant, they wind up in little piles of want-to-make dishes at work,…

Jennie Geisler: Chicken Enchiladas disappear almost as fast as they go together

   February 24, 2014 3:41 pm    0

The headline for this recipe for Fast Chicken Enchiladas was “Make These Chicken Enchiladas in 10 Minutes.” Yeah, well, no. Obviously, you can’t make enchiladas in 10 minutes, but I read it anyway, intrigued. They mean the prep. Apparently the 20 minutes it has to spend in the oven don’t count. But even knowing this,…

Ever find yourself asking someone what they want to eat, and they say “I don’t know. What do you want to eat?” This goes on for a while before you finally pour yourself a bowl of cereal. Or you decide to go out. “I don’t know. Where do you want to go?” Usually, I can…

This recipe for a Turkey Tart from Parade magazine was originally meant as a turkey leftovers recipe, but after one bite, it vaulted into my in general favorites pile. Part of the appeal could be that I used corn instead of broccoli. My MIL grows bushels and bushels of sweet corn, and brings me grocery…

Recipe e-mails flow into my mailbox every day, and I often find myself sorting the keepers into two categories: Fast, easy ones to try at home and “more interesting” ones to share with readers. I always want to write about something new and challenging that I can gas on about for my column, but I…

Lemony Chicken & Orzo fast, healthy, springy

I made lemon squares the other day to fill a craving I’d never had before. In the past, when I baked, it almost always involved chocolate. Lemon squares didn’t make it onto my radar. For some reason, though, that’s all I wanted last weekend to go with a special rib-eye steak dinner. I got the…

I was just eating creamy tomato soup from Panera and was fondly remembering it when I went looking in my saved recipes for this post. I didn’t have to look farther than Skillet Chicken With Tomato Cream Sauce, which promises simplicity and a crowd-pleasing, regular-rotation-worthy dinner. I’d bet it’s a version of a classic dish…

Halve your chicken and eat it, too

For years, out of pure squeamishness, I bought chicken breast meat and dumped it from the package into the pan to cook. I had no desire to touch it, cut it, pound it or even trim it if that meant touching the meat with my bare hands. Well, as you might imagine, this treatment of…

Some people like Beyonce’s legs. Other people like the leg lamp in “The Christmas Story.” My infatuation with chicken legs grows deeper with every meal. This recipe, for Chicken in Dill Mustard Sauce caught my eye, and dragged it. I’m still learning where and how to find chicken pieces that aren’t boneless, skinless breasts, which…

Chicken with Chipotle, baked and sauced

It’s not every day that I find a recipe that looks both exciting and comforting and delicious. For some reason, those three don’t come together all that often. Then I come to find out it has exactly 7 ingredients, and one of those is salt. The rest is easily obtained. If you don’t believe me,…
