Chinese No Clay-Pot Chicken with Soy & Ginger This was one of the first entries in our Best Healthy Casseroles contest, and I knew right away that it was a favorite. Why? Because I wanted to cook it immediately! This simple dish from reader Nancy takes just a few ingredients, and through the magic of the oven, transforms them into an aromatic dish of perfectly cooked rice studded with chicken and shiitake mushrooms, flavored with soy, ginger, and garlic. Skinny Chicken Tikka Masala Tender chunks of boneless chicken breast cooked in an aromatic creamy tomato sauce. Chicken tikka masala, probably the most popular dish on the menu of any Indian restaurant here in the states, but ironically this dish is claimed to be originally from Britain and is actually Britain's national dish. I've attempted a skinny version of this dish many times without all the cream and ghee (clarified butter) yet never felt quite satisfied with the results. I almost gave up figuring this is probably just one of those dishes that does not lighten up well, after all it's also known as Butter Chicken! There is no standard recipe for chicken tikka masala; a survey found that of 48 different recipes, the only common ingredient was the chicken so I am sure we all have different ideas of what it should taste like. This week I stumbled on this recipe from a throw down with Bobby Flay from the restaurant Saffron on the Hudson.
Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken I have been running fast this week in preparation for the annual family Labor Day Weekend at the lake. There were bed linens to wash, beds to be made, the refrigerator cleaned, floors moped and an extra table added to the porch so that we can seat fourteen. I have been doing prep work in the kitchen; things that can be done ahead of time like making glazed pecans for salads, blueberry muffins baked and in the freezer, lemon cake layers made and a raspberry curd whipped up for a special birthday cake. There has been little time to think about what’s for dinner.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore Believe it or not, I actually put this in the crockpot before I realized I was in labor early on Sunday morning! I only had a few bites, but I was so thankful I had prepared this because my mom, dad, sister, and brother in law all came over at some point and they were able to enjoy some lunch too. It was really nice to have them over, it distracted me from the pain and I was able to labor at home for about 5 hours before going into the hospital. Anyway, this was obviously a super easy recipe! Everyone raved about it and the house smelled wonderful.
