For some reason I was drawn to recipes featuring chicken this week. I did substitute pork for one of them, but I know I'll eventually try it with chicken too. Chicken is so quick-cooking and versatile, it's always a winner around here!
Clockwise from top right:
1. Stir-fried Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. Since we were already having chicken twice, I made this dish with pork (cubed pork chops) to change it up a little. This is a very adaptable recipe; it's easy to change up the meat and vegetables to use whatever you have on hand. It had such great flavor. Even the next day I couldn't wait to eat the leftovers...always a sign of a good meal.
2. Chicken Francese - Lightened Up from Skinnytaste. Well, the recipe is lightened up...my version wasn't quite. I used whole eggs instead of egg whites, and I served it with a pile of angel hair pasta rather than a salad. With a lemon butter sauce though, I feel like you need some pasta to soak it up. Yum!
3. Lazy Girl's Chicken Enchilada Casserole from Iowa Girl Eats. Any recipe that starts with "lazy girl" is always a good sign. Dinner time during the week is usually a whirlwind, and the more quickly I can get dinner made, the happier everyone is (right before dinner time is cranky time around here). This really was easy to make, and it was so good! The only change I made was using flour tortillas instead of corn, mostly because I just like them better. Also we buy them in bulk for Mr. Quesadilla.
What's for dinner for you tonight?
Be sure to come back on January 30th for a Weekly Eats linkup. I'd love for you to link up and share anything you've done in the kitchen lately!
