I’ve been indulging in some chicken the last few months - I gave it up for a few years but find myself having cravings now and then. I’m conscious of what I buy - doing the best I can to know the chicken lived a full life. It affects your karma - really!
Chicken and Yogurt is HEAVEN I tell you! I have two recipes to share that are not only super easy but also guilt free and loaded with taste. Bon Appetit is my favorite source for new dishes. Click the titles for the recipes.
Roast Chicken Breast with Garbanzo Beans, Tomatoes and Paprika
I have made this more than once and the left overs are even better. It has so much taste and it only takes like 15 minutes to prepare. The chicken and beans equal protein and fiber - a perfectly guilt-free meal. The dipping yogurt is the best part.
Before and after baking.
Pan-Roasted Chicken with Carrots and Almonds
I made this on a Friday night for Jersey and I and the carrots are roasted with honey and almonds. It’s so so so good. The chicken breasts with bones start on the stove top then make their way to the oven. Greek yogurt is served on the side. This will not disappoint - and Friday nights are cocktail nights - so it’s quick and easy too.
As a Friday night appetizer I made my first tart a couple weekends ago. Geez the puff pastry sheets are like impossible to work with! I ended up throwing most of it out. LOL.
Artichoke and Feta Tarts but they also gave other options like black olives, thyme and roasted red peppers - so I did half and half. Light and crispy.

I’ve become obsessed with onekingslane.com. I got all this stuff for my kitchen for $60! Don’t you just love the colors?!
Salmonella in ground turkey. Meat is not safe and I wanted some turkey burgers this weekend!
