Herb Roasted Chicken

September 6th, 2017 Posted by Mains 0 thoughts on “Herb Roasted Chicken”

I’m not the biggest fan of plain chicken breast, but roasted whole on the bone, well seasoned with salt and a herb butter is irresistible. I recommend using the smallest chicken you can find as they tend to be more tender and juicy.

Salting the chicken at least a few hours before roasting, preferable overnight, helps to season deep in the flesh, and make for a juicier bird. If you don’t have the time to preseason the chicken, don’t worry, it will still be delicious. I use 1 teaspoon of kosher salt per pound of chicken.

Beet, Berry and Avocado Salad

August 15th, 2017 Posted by Mains, Sides, Veggies 0 thoughts on “Beet, Berry and Avocado Salad”

A new take on beet salad that’s both delicious and very nutritious. This is my version of Jeremy Foxes beet salad at Rustic Canyon restaurant . This is an easy salad to make once you roast and pickle the beets. The quick pickle of the beets adds a nice complexity and greatly enhances their flavor. The berries add a nice tart sweetness. You could also add some roast chicken to make it a substantial meal.

Shishito peppers can be mild or spicy, but always delicious. I look forward to making them every summer. This East Asian chili is great roasted or grilled and are the perfect healthy snack with a cold drink. This recipe is made with roasted corn and Pecorino cheese. The cumin-lime vinaigrette really makes them shine.

Who doesn’t love a good, simple “meat” (turkey) sauce? This one doesn’t come with the guilt though using zucchini “tagliatelle” noodles adding freshness and nutrition.
