Peruvian Chicken Salad with Aji Verde

Do you guys have Alpaca where you live? They have the best Peruvian chicken and we love eating there. I also love making any variant of the dish at home. The Aji Verde (green sauce) is really the star, but the chicken is amazing too. This recipe turns the dish into a salad with theContinue reading “Peruvian Chicken Salad with Aji Verde”

Double Lemon Chicken

This recipe comes from Ottolenghi’s Test Kitchen and it is a take on Chinese takeout lemon chicken, but lightened up and with a much deeper flavored sauce, achieved using preserved lemon paste. I had bought a jar of the above preserved lemon paste to make these Preserved Lemon Chicken Skewers and I had a quiteContinue reading “Double Lemon Chicken”

Fish Taco Bowls

Fish tacos are one of my favorite things to order at restaurants, and I also make them at home on a regular basis.

Garlic Balsamic Olive Oil Dip

We have been trying to eat a bit healthier lately, and that makes a weekend splurge even tastier! I saw a picture of this sandwich on social media and really wanted to try it.

Mexican Chicken with Cheese Sauce and Rice

I saw a picture of this recipe and it looked so satisfying. It is a pretty simple meal, but I like the combination of highly spiced, grilled chicken, cheese sauce and rice. Ideally you should always marinate chicken breasts the day before, unless the marinade contains a lot of citrus or vinegar, in which caseContinue reading “Mexican Chicken with Cheese Sauce and Rice”

Grilled Jerk Chicken with BBQ Sauce

Jerk chicken is one of my favorite ways to eat chicken.

I had extra chicken breasts in my freezer so that isContinue reading “Grilled Jerk Chicken with BBQ Sauce”

Konigsberger Klopse (German Meatballs in Caper Sauce)

They were discussing German recipes and this one came up and my family is crazy about capers so I knew I wanted to try it (thank you ladies, for the idea). According to the recipes I read,Continue reading “Konigsberger Klopse (German Meatballs in Caper Sauce)”
