I’m so far behind in posting and cooking that I’ve stopped thinking I’ll “catch up”.  I’ll have to settle for posting what I’ve cooked and cooking what calls loudest to me for now.  It’s a challenge to work full time and volunteer semi-full time and still COOK at all some weeks!  A couple concerts and a children’s musical stage play will certainly rearrange your life!

A few weeks ago, when I was still reasonably on schedule, or doing a reasonable job of convincing myself I was still cooking on schedule, I fixed Ellie’s Chicken Paprikash as selected by Kayte….   Like all Ellie dishes, this went together so very quickly and was super tasty.  We truly enjoyed this one.  I put mine over a bed of noodles

Next up was the Parmesan crusted chicken… This tasted far better than it looks.  I lost a lot of the Parmesan crust when I turned the chicken.  Doggone it.  Still….darn quick to put together and very tasty.  Sometimes the entrees go together so quickly the sides need to be started first!!

I’m about caught up on rest and ready to jump back into the kitchen…maybe I can even get my dish done ahead…we like Bahn mi!!  We’ll see….  Easter does need to sneak in here somewhere!





EwE: Grilled Tandoori Chicken Breasts~

Ellie’s Grilled Tandoori Chicken Breasts, pg. 137 of Weeknight Wonders, was my selection for the week of Feb. 26th.  What an easy dish to put together….they all are, if you have all the ingredients!!  A few spices mixed into yogurt and smeared onto the chicken for a brief marination period, then off to the grill….or in my case…the grill pan!!

I owe my sister cooks an apology for this one… The US was hit with almost coast to coast bitter cold and snow, north to south, so grilling was a challenge at best.  Only a California gal could think “grilling” as a year ’round activity!  I’m sorry!  If it’s any consolation, by the time I had a moment to put this recipe together, we were having incredible thunderstorms and downpours.  I was glad for my grill pan….

We enjoyed this dish quite a lot.  I served the chicken with a simple steamed mixed veg on the side and steamed basmati rice underneath.  I’m looking forward to the next chicken dish as well!  Chicken Paprikash is up next!
