Since my husband and I don't like dates, I didn't use them, and this dish still was great! I had a hard time with the breading staying on the chicken while it simmered in the broth mixture. But, that really didn't effect the whole of the dish. This was great the day after, too. The sauce was thicker and had a fuller, richer flavor to it.
This was great! I have to say that this was one of the most flavorful chicken dishes that I have gotten from this site. It was moist, yet the outside was crunchy enough. I didn't use as much butter, so the coating didn't get soggy. The dill was great! I served it with baked french fries with cajun seasoning. The two flavors mixed quite well together.
This was great! My husband and I loved this recipe. I followed it to the letter with just a little less butter. I also cut the chicken into strips, so they cooked in half the time. Thanks for such a great and quick recipe.
These are very good. I am glad that I read some other advice on them, though. I used the juice of half a lemon and omitted the extract (bc I didn't have any) and the zest of one lemon. I also used 2 tbl. of applesauce and 1 tbl. of oil to cut down on fat. I did add 2 tbl. of milk to thin it out a bit. Also, I made a glaze as someone else suggested with about 1/3C powdered sugar and the juice of half a lemon. What I did notice was how dense these were. I don't know really know why. So, I will just have to try them again. Great combination of zing and sweetness but not too sweet!
This was a very nice and easy soup. I made just a few adjustements. I added 3 carrots and 3 cloves of garlic. I also used homeade chicken stock and frozen corn. Using the frozen corn cuts down on the sodium. I also added a half of a green pepper and 1/2 tsp. oregano. I really like the carrot texture with the beans. Thanks!
This was a really neat dish. I really enjoyed it, and so did my husband who is a bit nervous about polenta (especially in the tube :) I did make some variations and changes. I added half a chopped red pepper and red onion for color. I used two zuchinni because I didn't have eggplant. I also used taco mix because I didn't have fajita. I didn't use the whole packet (to cut down on sodium). I also didn't put the salsa or olives on the casserole. I think the salsa could make it a bit watery, so I decided not to. Also, I sprinkled oregano, pepper and garlic powder over the polento circles before adding the bean mixture. I also think that you could cut down on the amount of beans (personal preference) as it seemed to overwhelm the vegetable mixture at times. I used 1 can of kidney beans and half a can each of garbonzo and cannellini beans.I also used a fiesta blend of cheese isntead of the mozzarella. I served the casserole with salsa, olives and sour cream. The flavor was great. Will make again! Thanks Karen. :)
This was a great meal to make quickly! I used 1 lb of turkey breast, cut into tenderloins. I also cut down the sauce half and only used 2 tbl. of low-fat margarine; could use more pepper. I poured off 3/4 of the liquid in the pan about half way through to allow the turkey to brown and the sauce to carmelize on the meat. Right before serving, I used some of the leftover sauce and drizzled it over the turkey. Will try again with chicken and maybe the curry powder like another reviewer mentioned. Yummers!
This was great! I did add some spices to the tops of the chicken breasts. I added garlic powder, pepper, red pepper flakes and some rosemary leaves. It really was a great dish and definitely one that will impress dinner guests. I served it with linguine noodles mixed with olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, rosemary and garlic, which was a great complement to the flavors of the chicken. Thanks!
I have to say that I wasn't very happy with the way that these turned out. I did increase the spices and added only 1/2 cup of raisins. But, they just weren't muffin like enough for what I was expecting.
This wasn't as punchy as I would have like. I added a 1/2 tsp. of ginger, but I should try a whole teaspoon as another review suggested. They were good, though.
This was a great recipe. I do have to say that I did change some quantities and added some extra ingredients. I used 8 cups of water and 3 1/2 tsp. of chicken bouillon. I also used more chicken and more noodles, 2 cloves of garlic, 3/4 tsp. ginger, 1 tsp. dried rosemary, 1 medium onion, and 1/2 tsp. of pepper. I also didn't saute the chicken or vegetables in oil. I just softened them up with spray oil. Thanks for the great starter!
This was the first time I have attempted making a curry, and it was a HUGE success! I had to use dry spices, and I didn't have the cardamom. But, it was still great! I used light coconut milk to cut down on the fat, which was a great substitute. I also added two sliced carrots and a handful of raisins for color and texture. I'm sure the leftovers will be great for lunch today. :) Thanks Kristi!
