This dish is fairly simple to make and the whole family will love it. I ate two pieces with the remaining broccoli on the side for a perfect meal.

Sesame Chicken Sesame Chicken I have whined and complained before about my plight of living without Chinese takeout. Well this is how I cope. Sesame Chicken is my favorite on the all you can eat buffet, well along with the Crab Rangoon. This is a recipe that I adapted from one my sister-in-law gave me. The secret is definitely in the sauce here. Mom's Spanish Chicken and Rice Chicken and rice, otherwise known as arroz con pollo is a delicious one pot meal the whole family will love. Arroz con pollo can be made so many different ways and also varies from country to country. In fact, I don't use a recipe when I make this, I just use whatever I have on hand so it may never turn out the same twice. This is my Mom's version, which I've lightened up and recently altered slightly. This recipe first appeared here in 2008 but was in desperate need of a new photo so I hope you enjoy it!

One Pot Creamy Chicken, Vegetable & Parmesan Orzo (Risoni) - RecipeTin Eats A fantastic recipe to add to your mid week meal rotation, a complete meal made in one pot, on the table in 15 minutes. A creamy, parmesan sauce (made without cream!) and with plenty of vegetables, this is just like risotto, except it won’t take you 45 minutes to make. Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges, and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent. I love orange chicken, and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home.

Skinny Buffalo Burger Quesadilla 100% grass-fed buffalo burgers with melted cheddar jack cheese and pico de gallo wedged in between two whole wheat tortillas. This was inspired by a lunch I had at Applebee's, although this sandwich is far leaner! Sure, you can make this with lean beef, turkey or even use veggie burgers, but I wanted a fun way to introduce my first buffalo recipe on Skinnytaste. Avocado Stuffed Meatballs (Low Carb and Gluten-Free) Guys, I’m trying to grow an avocado tree from a seed.I’m super pumped about it.The other day, I ate an avocado, washed the pit and suspended the broad end down over a water-filled glass - using toothpicks. Put in a warm place out of direct sunlight. As per instructions.I’m now waiting for the roots and stem sprout.There’s a problem though, I'm horrible with plants. Seriously challenged.Outdoor plants, indoor plants, annuals, perennials. I kill them off in record time. For instance, I buy potted fresh herbs (such as basil, thyme, rosemary, etc) at the grocery store all the time.I adore fresh herbs, they lift the simplest dish onto another level.
