Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites - StumbleUpon

That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy, smoky and crispy chicken nuggets. If you don’t like hot, leave out the jalapenos or skimp a bit.

This family-run Italian eatery on Crystal City’s busy restaurant row, a.k.a. 23rd Street, has been dishing up plates of pasta for three generations.

Adelmo Micheli and his son, Sergio, opened the place in 1970, later Sergio and his wife Pilar ran it, and recently their son Richard, a Culinary Institute of America grad, has taken the torch. The old world feel -- think dark wood, gilded mirrors, and brocade boudoir chairs -- strikes a nostalgic chord with older couples and extended families with children who frequent the place and become regulars.

They come for classic Italian fare -- many of the plates are from longtime family recipes. Pastas include lasagna bolognese, linguine with Ligurian pesto, and veal-stuffed ravioli with sun-dried tomatoes. More substantial plates range from dishes like chicken or veal marsala, with wine and mushrooms, or piccata with lemon and capers, to rosemary-crusted lamb chops with black olive sauce.

I could go on and on about it, but I won’t, because I’m sure I’ll be talking plenty about it in a few months when it’s not cold and wet here in the Midwest, and we actually get out to use it. In the mean time, I used a grill pan to grill up some Balsamic BBQ Glazed Grilled Chicken, and steak.

This recipe is all about the balsamic bbq sauce that you use to baste the chicken while it’s grilling. While I used a grill pan with great success, I know this recipe would turn out even better using a grill. Is anyone else just itching for Spring to arrive?
