  • Baked Chicken and Root Vegetables

    An easy, but very tasty, one dish wonder. The chicken sits supremely on top, dripping its lovely juices into the vegetables.

    Although this elegant dish is low on calories, the melted Brie-and-onion combination creates a rich-tasting, buttery consistency

  • Chicken and Black Bean Burritos

    A kid friendly Tex-Mex lunch or dinner.

    Eaten on our "Chasing Picasso" trip to Spain and France

  • Chicken Florentine Roll-ups

    Perfect for entertaining, these chicken cutlets are stuffed with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, walnuts and just enough cream cheese to hold the filling together. Make a double batch and freeze half the roll-ups (individually wrapped in plastic), then just defrost and bake as you like. Serve topped with fresh diced tomatoes or marinara sauce and a sprinkling of chopped fresh basil.

    Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3 and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
    Look for soft sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil) in the produce section of most supermarkets. If you can only find dry (and hard) sun-dried tomatoes, soak them in boiling water for about 20 minutes before using.

    To toast whole nuts, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes. To toast chopped, small or sliced nuts, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

    If you can’t find chicken cutlets for this recipe, you can start with regular boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pound them until they are thin. Start with four 10- to 12-ounce chicken breasts, remove each tender and cut each breast in half into 2 roughly equal portions for eight 4-ounce portions. Place the chicken between pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch.
