Chicken with Potato and Preserved Lemon Tajine

  There are two Moroccan meals that I learned first.  This is one of them (the other is Moroccan style lentils). Although I now can make any number of tajines and other dishes, chicken with potatoes and preserved lemons brings back really nice memories. It took me many tries to get the spices right and many more tajines where the potatoes burned or the chicken wasn’t quite done. But, sometimes getting there is half the battle. My little sister – well she’s not so little anymore – loves this tajine with carrots mixed in. I’ve been dying to try it…

Mediterranean Baked Chicken Honey Vinegar

Mediterranean Baked Chicken with Lemongrass Coriander Honey Vinegar

Have you been following me on Pinterest? I’ve started a weekly meal plan board that I switch out the recipes for every week.  There was a time when I was really picky when it came to meal planning and I loved the structure that it provided me.  But, I never found something that let me put a week of meals into it’s place and then pick and choose the recipes as we went through the week.  That’s why I love Pinterest!!  So last week I had a plan to make this Pollo Loco chicken, but just as I was about…

Milk and Honey Chicken

The last month has been a very busy time for me.  There were more family activities than normal, a nephew was born,  a birthday party was planned and carried out (K turned 5), and a terrible toothache that led to having my wisdom teeth extracted.  I’m kind of tired reading that.  Thankfully I had many things to share with you because honestly, I didn’t cook much at all. The things I did cook were fast, easy recipes that I’ve made a hundred times. We ate out a lot more than I care to admit and frankly I was too tired…

Steamed and Stuffed Moroccan Chicken

For some reason I really have an affinity for stuffed poultry.  Maybe it’s my American roots and that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Or maybe it’s just that it’s oh so tasty!  There are many varieties of Moroccan stuffed main dishes.  Of course there’s stuffed chicken but there are also stuffed fish dishes.  I haven’t played with fish too much because I’m still working my way up to dealing with an entire fish.  I’m going to try and tackle it soon.  Today’s recipe is an interesting take on the traditional stuffed and baked chicken/turkey.  I rarely steam meat…

Chicken Oat Cutlets and Mashed Potatoes with Lemon Sauce

This weekend MarocBaba tried some bread at a barbeque.  I think you might be able to guess what the results were..yea a big tummy ache and other side effects.  We’re pretty convinced now that he does have some degree of gluten intolerance so it’s back to eliminating gluten completely.  I’m getting better at this, but I’m desperately in need of a good gluten free bread recipe that doesn’t have 100 pricey ingredients. I whipped up this dinner quick one night when the kids were begging for mashed potatoes.  I swear I should open a potato farm.  I actually ended up…

Lemon Grilled Chicken and Minty Asparagus

Summer is finally here!  We’ve managed to have several weeks of temperatures in the 70’s so I think it’s safe to say now.  A little over a week ago we embarked on a new journey. MarocBaba has always had stomach problems from the time he was a small child.  If you know anything about Moroccan food you know that it’s heavy on the bread.  Heavy like bread with every single meal at least 3 times a day.   We have been to a lot of doctors and have cut out spicy and greasy foods thinking that these were the things…

Skillet Lemon Chicken

One of my favorite restaurant’s is PF Chang’s.  Since we have moved, the closest one is well over an hour away.  I don’t get to go very often anymore.  Every time I do go I order the Lemon Chicken.  Sure I could pick other things but why – this is what I love!  I do think I have figured out how to make something close to this recipe at home. Ingredients 1 lb of chicken breasts cut into cubes 1 lemon 1/2 tsp ground ginger 1 tsp garlic 2-3 tsp water 1 egg white beaten panko bread crumbs 2 tsp…
