We've tried several new recipes recently, and this is one I can wholeheartedly recommend. Giada has never let me down, and this is another winner. Chicken or Steak with Balsamic BBQ Sauce. Hubby LOVES it, which makes it a definite keeper around here. And as Giada mentions, I think it would be good on really any meat - steak, pork or chicken.
I will link you to the recipe as opposed to posting it, but I have a couple notes on the recipe. First, it's a great one to make ahead for lunches later in the week. Secondly, because the sauce is cooked, you can add more to your finished chicken without that "cold sauce out of the bottle" taste. You'll see a better photo toward the end of this post, but we made a few extra pieces because chicken was on sale this week:
Next, I tried a second recipe that caught my eye recently. While browsing the March issue of Gourmet (a great print and online resource, and NOT difficult cooking, as the name might otherwise lead you to believe), I found this little gem: Panfried Smashed Potatoes. And let me tell you, it's definitely going into our regular menu rotation. Ohhhh so good, and not unhealthy (lightly friend in olive oil, which is great for you!). The recipe I tried reminds me of PW's post on Crash Hot Potatoes. Hers are baked instead of fried, and I may try that next. But by boiling the potatoes in the same pan I fried them in, I saved myself washing a separate baking sheet, so I will probably keep this method for now. Meanwhile, you can see our version of the potatoes in the dinner below. They came out so well and we both loved them!
