This is a quick dish that's great for summer. I came up with it on a Thursday after school when Mom asked me to get dinner ready before she got home. Nice and light.

I think this is a great base recipe but could really benefit from some vegetables or something integrated into it rather than over a salad. I haven't come up with something else quite yet but I'm definitely going to try this one again. Read More

This was a great surprise. I was looking for a recipe to use up fresh spinach and this turned out to be excellent. I served it with a side of pasta with ratatouilee and together they made a very nice meal. Don't skimp on the lime juice since you want the limey sauce from the chicken to flavor the spinach. Yum.

Excellent! Could have used a little more garlic and a little less lime but we loved the flavor anyway (and we love garlic a lot). My roommates don't like spinach so I added French cut frozen green beans (thawed them with hot water and drained them first so they wouldn't water it down) and served it all over rice. Yum! Read More
