Since Let’s Dish revolves so much around food, a lot of folks have asked me about recipes from the book. So I have a confession to make: I don’t have any recipes. Honestly, I just made the stuff up. However, since I’ve had so many requests, my librarian and I have decided I need to try to make some of this stuff.
This blog is not about that.
Yeah, haven’t actually tried to create many of those recipes yet, But I am a total foodie. Problem is, I never measure anything. I am a dash-of-this, bit-of-that kind of cook, so sharing my recipes requires me to sit down and think about how much a bit and a dash are.
Today, I’ll share with you one recipe that is one of my favorite go-to dinners. It’s simple, inexpensive, and even my kids will eat it. I’ve posted this a couple places before, including on the Samhellion, so forgive me if you’ve seen it before. I promise new, exciting recipes coming in the future.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chicken seasoning
16 oz jar orange marmalade
¼ cup orange juice
1 small can mandarin oranges
¼ cup white wine (instead of orange juice) for a more French flair
2 tablespoons soy sauce for a more Asian taste
Sprinkle seasoning over chicken breasts and brown in olive oil until almost cooked through. Add marmalade, mandarin oranges, and orange juice (or wine or soy sauce) and allow sauce to reduce for approximately five to ten minutes. Serve over rice.
Seriously, that simple. And quick!
Keep your eyes open for more! Next week, White Chocolate Mints. Yup – straight from Maggie’s kitchen.
