So this is the first of what I hope will be many posts, offering all you frustrated cooks suggestions for something different for dinner. If your family is tired of the same old meals week in and week out, and you’re tired of trying to come up with something new, only to discover that nobody likes it, then relax, I’ve got you.
I’m going to be sharing some of the best recipes from my favorite sites – meal ideas that are quick and easy to prepare, and will have your family asking for more. My plan is to break them down by the main ingredient, but I’ll also be adding in some recipes that are a mix of foods, but are cheap or quick or easy… or all three. I hope you enjoy them – happy cooking.
Spicy Chicken & Salsa
Don’t be put off by the thought of having to make a salsa from scratch with this first recipe from Something New for Dinner, if you don’t have time to make it a day or so in advance (and perhaps use over a couple of meals, it’s quick and easy enough to rustle up while the chicken is cooking. In fact, the whole meal is so quick and easy, yet deliciously tasty, it makes a perfect weeknight dinner when you’re in a bit of a rush.
Chicken is such a versatile and easy to cook meat that there’s litter lay no end to the great dishes you can make with it… you just need a little imagination. One way to make a chicken dish taste even better is to combine it with some other great flavors. This recipe adds in some potatoes and prosciuotto to make delicious kabobs that are great as a quick and easy dinner during the summer.
If you’ve not heard of Chicken Marbella, where have you been? This oldy-but-goody recipe has literally been around for decades and was on pretty much ever dinner table in the 80s. The great thing about this recipe is that it looks as thought you’ve spent hours preparing it, when in fact it doesn’t take very long to prepare at all – plus, it’s perfect at dinner parties or just as a weeknight dinner.
It seems the lovely people over at Something New for Dinner liked our idea of suggesting some great chicken dishes for people who were looking for something a little different for dinner, and they came up with their own list.
