Chicken Baked with Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes

This recipe comes from Julia Moskin in The New York Times. It’s a simple meal, inspired by Italian techniques. I left the chicken to marinate while I prepped the potatoes. My teenager is responsible for washing the dishes after dinner; he was definitely psyched that this was a one-pot meal! […]

 

Simmered Chicken and Vegetables

The traditional version of this recipe comes from northern Japan, and includes lotus and taro root, konnyaku (preserved konjac potato), and dried shiitake.

Braised Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

I pulled a recipe for chicken thighs with sweet potatoes and prunes out of an issue of Real Simple last fall; it sounded delicious. We ad libbed to create Whole Life Challenge-compliant Braised Chicken and Sweet Potatoes by replacing prunes and honey with dates and farmer’s market-fresh plums and pluots. […]

 

Chicken White Bean Salad

I was preparing dinner for one, so I wanted to make something fast, inexpensive, and delicious. A lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing fancies up this simple salad, made of pantry staples – canned chicken breast and canned cannelloni beans. This salad is fresh and light on a bed […]
