Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Rating: Unrated
A healthy and tasty chicken salad with a fruity twist - great on a croissant or in a honey pita. Note: This salad is best if eaten the day after preparation. This allows the ingredients time to mingle, giving a fuller flavor. If desired, use nonfat mayonnaise.

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: Unrated
I've been making this recipe for so many years, I can't remember where I got it from. It's really quick to throw together. After fixing it several times, my husband 'discovered' that you were supposed to spread the garlic on the chicken. It's one of his favorites now. This recipe is very easy to adjust up or down. Just make sure your pan is big enough if adjusting up. I usually add more potatoes, since we like them. Serve with a mixed greens salad.

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

I sometimes substitute chicken broth for half the heavy cream called for in the recipe to reduce calories. I also use additional Parmesan.

Very good and very easy to make Asian soup. My husband is a chef, and he said that this was fantastic! (He's hard to impress.) We finished the pot in one sitting.

Easy Baked Chicken Thighs

As a college student, this is an easy recipe that requires minimum preparation work! You can season it with other spices. I do mine with cayenne powder and black pepper.

Southern Fried Chicken Livers

Rating: Unrated
Mom made them because they are cheap, and now the convenience stores sell them in the South! You must have a fry screen -- these darn things pop and will burn you! Serve with pepper gravy or a packet of chicken gravy.
