In these four recipes we use them shredded in a Chinese chicken salad; diced and stir-fried with vegetables; grilled with Indian spices; and sautéed and served with an apricot sauce. Try one of these gourmet chicken recipes tonight for a delicious dinner that won&#039;t take long to prepare. &lt;em&gt;Breast Reduction:&lt;/em&gt; Boneless, skinless chicken breasts range in size from about 5 ounces to over 12 ounces each. For recipes calling for one 4-ounce breast per person, look for 5-ounce breasts and remove the “tender”—the thin strip of meat from the underside (about 1 ounce of meat)—­before using. Wrap and freeze the tenders; when you have enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers. If you cannot find 5-ounce chicken breasts, use 8-ounce breasts and cut them in half crosswise.</div> <div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html' target='_blank'>Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/indian_spiced_chicken_pitas.html' target='_blank'>Indian-Spiced Chicken Pitas</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/seared_chicken_with_apricot_sauce.html' target='_blank'>Seared Chicken with Apricot Sauce</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chinese_chicken_noodle_salad.html' target='_blank'>Chinese Chicken &amp; Noodle Salad</a></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/4_gourmet_chicken_recipes#comments Jessie Price Recipes & Menus - Recipe Slideshows Mon, 24 Aug 2009 15:46:10 +0000 Sarah Hoff 10315 at http://www.eatingwell.com Farm Fresh Dinners http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/farm_fresh_dinners <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/farm_fresh_dinners" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/5_Farm_Fresh_Dinners.JPG" alt="Farm Fresh Dinners Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" title="Farm Fresh Dinners Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div>These easy weeknight suppers are inspired by the bountiful fruits and vegetables that are ripe and ready to eat at the farmers’ market now.

Our office in Charlotte, Vermont, a rural town of about 3,500, is located in the midst of farm fields. We have dairy cows across the street and a flock of woolly sheep just down the road. The compost from our Test Kitchen feeds a pair of black pigs at a nearby farm. Each spring we plant big pots of herbs, chard and kale outside the front door. And all summer, we stop by the Charlotte Berry Farm after work to pick strawberries, raspberries and blueberries or head down to a local “secret spot” to forage for chanterelles.</p> <p>As the food editor at EatingWell, I am passionate about savoring seasonal produce. In May it’s asparagus seven nights a week, and then in October I give myself stomachaches from eating too many apples. In early July I rush to my mom’s house to pick sour cherries before the birds eat them. When those cherries are in season, it means weeks of cherry tarts, cherry preserves, cherry pie and even sour-cherry cocktails with dark rum.</p> <p>And I’m not the only one here who’s so crazy about seasonal produce. Test Kitchen Manager Stacy Fraser ran a small organic vegetable farm when she first moved to Charlotte. People around town still miss the amazing blend of salad greens she and her husband sold at their farmstand, back before you could find mesclun in plastic boxes at every supermarket. Now she puts her green thumb to work as the coordinator of the vegetable garden at her son’s school. Associate Editor Carolyn Malcoun is especially partial to dark leafy greens, which she tenderly refers to as “DLGs.” She gets DLGs from her CSA, grows them in her garden and one of her favorite stops on Saturday mornings is Pete’s Greens’ stand at her local farmers’ market. At Pete’s she picks up some of Vermont’s finest greens, from wild arugula to Italian dandelion</p> <p>This wealth of wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables surrounding us inspires and informs our recipes at EatingWell every day. When I’m looking for ideas for an easy summer recipe, the first place I turn is my backyard garden. I got the idea for <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/poblano_skirt_steak_fajitas.html">Poblano &amp; Skirt Steak Fajitas</a> when I was harvesting scallions and hot peppers from my garden. Carolyn had no problem coming up with <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_winter_greens_recipes">recipe ideas for dark leafy greens</a>. </p> <p>Besides the inspiration that these fabulous local ingredients provide, they also happen to synch perfectly with our mission—to help people make healthy eating a way of life. After all, there’s no more enjoyable and delicious way to eat healthfully than to cook and eat whatever produce is best at the moment. Of course we also pepper in lean meats, cheeses, whole grains and dairy products. But the tart Honeycrisp apples in October and the ripe tomatoes in July are what make cooking exciting and make our recipes taste great.</p> <p>And we strive to make these recipes as easy as possible so that eating well in season is a joy rather than a chore. In our Test Kitchen we test each recipe, on average, seven times to make sure that you get the same great results when you cook our recipes at home. Plus we stick with simple methods and easy-to-find ingredients to keep our recipes streamlined.</p> <p>EatingWell in Season, The Farmers' Market Cookbook is a collection of some of our favorite recipes that highlight the best produce of the year. We’ve organized the recipes by season so you’ll find, for example, that the dishes in the Summer chapter feature produce that “peaks” during the summer months. Our Seasonal Produce Chart shows how we’ve organized the produce by season.</p> <p>Of course, “peak” season is different depending on where you live. So what’s ripe around you locally at the moment is your best guide to what to cook next.</p> <p>You’ll find recipes for the most iconic seasonal vegetables, such as peas in spring or citrus in winter, in this collection. And we’ve also included some more underappreciated seasonal beauties (just the sort of thing you might pick up at your farmers’ market), such as dandelion greens in spring or celery root in winter. And of course, I wouldn’t leave out the sour cherries. You can enjoy our delicious <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sour_cherry_fruit_slump.html">sour cherry slump</a>.

Eating at home more often is one easy way to cut costs. But by how much? We started calculating the price tag for recipes in EatingWell a couple of months ago. It turns out that eating healthfully at home can be pretty affordable compared with going out. And we’re not talking about converting to a strict beans-and-rice diet every night of the week. We’ve even included New York steak and wild Alaskan salmon in this lineup of weeknight meals and they all come in at $4.50 or less a serving—a fraction of what they would cost in a restaurant.</p> <p>These meals are so affordable, in part, for the same reason that they’re so good for you: we don’t overdo it on meat. Eating less meat or even vegetarian meals occasionally is healthy. When we include meat or fish in our recipes, we recommend a reasonable-size portion of 3 to 4 ounces per serving. That may seem small if you’re used to plate-size porterhouse steaks, but we promise that these recipes won’t leave you hungry. We make sure they also include plenty of whole grains, veggies, fruit and flavor. Besides the New York steak (on kebabs with potatoes and peppers) and the salmon (with a spicy red pepper sauce and grilled zucchini) we’ve also got a pizza topped with arugula and fresh tomatoes, huevos rancheros with green salsa and oven-fried fish-and chips. I definitely can’t fix the stock market for my mother-in-law. But I can offer these five recipes as a personal financial stimulus plan that’s both tasty and healthful. </p> <p>MONDAY: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/huevos_rancheros_verdes.html"> Huevos Rancheros Verdes</a>—Huevos rancheros or “ranch eggs” is a classic Mexican dish that is great for a quick dinner. Traditionally, it’s made with a red tomato-based sauce. Here we use tart and tangy green salsa instead. Serve with: brown rice and slices of avocado.</p> <p>TUESDAY: Steak &amp; Potato Kebabs with Creamy Cilantro Sauce—Steak kebabs get a Southwestern spin with poblano peppers and a creamy sauce spiked with cilantro, chile powder, cumin and vinegar. The potatoes are partially cooked in the microwave before putting them on the grill so they’re done at the same time as faster-cooking steak, peppers and onions. Serve with: Green salad and Spanish rice.</p> <p>WEDNESDAY: Grilled Salmon &amp; Zucchini with Red Pepper Sauce—Jazz up simply grilled salmon and summer vegetables with a zesty sauce based on the classic Spanish romesco. Made with roasted red peppers, tomatoes and almonds, this sauce is a great match for any seafood, poultry or vegetables. Using smoked paprika brings out the flavors from the grill. Serve with: Grilled baguette.</p> <p>THURSDAY: Arugula &amp; Prosciutto Pizza—Sautéed onions, prosciutto and fontina cheese flavor this white pizza. Topping the hot-out-of-the-oven pizza with fresh greens and diced tomatoes gives it a delicious, summery twist. We use store-bought pizza dough to keep it quick. Serve with: Crunchy vegetables and your favorite dip.</p> <p>FRIDAY: Oven-Fried Fish &amp; Chips—Fish and chips are traditionally sold wrapped in paper to soak up all the grease—not a good sign. To cut the calories in half and reduce the fat, we coat the delicate fish in a crispy cornflake crust and then bake it along with sliced potatoes. Serve with: Coleslaw and malt vinegar or lemon wedges.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/quick_healthy_cooking/quick_weeknight_dinners/5_budget_friendly_weeknight_meals#comments Jessie Price Healthy Cooking - Quick & Healthy Cooking Tue, 18 Aug 2009 19:21:47 +0000 Paula Joslin 9711 at http://www.eatingwell.com 4 Gourmet Chicken Recipes http://www.eatingwell.com/4_gourmet_chicken_recipes_0 <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Jessie Price </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 4 delicious ways to dress up chicken breasts. </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html">Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/indian_spiced_chicken_pitas.html">Indian-Spiced Chicken Pitas</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/seared_chicken_with_apricot_sauce.html">Seared Chicken with Apricot Sauce</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/menus/chinese_chicken_noodle_salad_menu">Chinese Chicken &amp; Noodle Salad Menu</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>When I first started dating my husband he lived in Incline Village, Nevada. Every time I visited, his housemate Patrick would rush in from work to fuel up with a meal before heading to the gym. Patrick claimed that he was on a “chicken and broccoli diet” that would, along with all of his weight lifting, help him get buff. His routine went something like this: he’d walk in the door, usually yakking on his cell phone, go to the kitchen, take a boneless, skinless chicken breast out of the refrigerator, put it on a baking sheet along with some broccoli, douse everything with Mrs. Dash and throw it in the oven. Then he’d go watch car racing on TV for 15 minutes and come back and eat. He was in and out of the house in 30 minutes most days.</p> <p>And that’s part of the beauty of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They are the ultimate healthy, quick convenience food. They are lean and cook up in minutes. But what Patrick was overlooking was that they’re also endlessly versatile. In these four recipes we use them shredded in a Chinese chicken salad; diced and stir-fried with vegetables; grilled with Indian spices; and sautéed and served with an apricot sauce. Patrick may not have been working any magic with his diet from a culinary perspective. But he was onto something. Chicken breasts are just plain easy. And with delicious recipes like these, you may decide to start your own chicken diet plan.</p> <p><em>Breast Reduction</em>: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts range in size from about 5 ounces to over 12 ounces each. For recipes calling for one 4-ounce breast per person, look for 5-ounce breasts and remove the “tender”—the thin strip of meat from the underside (about 1 ounce of meat)—­before using. Wrap and freeze the tenders; when you have enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers. If you cannot find 5-ounce chicken breasts, use 8-ounce breasts and cut them in half crosswise.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/4_gourmet_chicken_recipes_0#comments Jessie Price May/June 2009 Tue, 18 Aug 2009 15:59:28 +0000 Paula Joslin 9685 at http://www.eatingwell.com
