Spaghetti Genovese
Traditionally, this Italian pasta recipe combines pasta and pesto with potatoes and green beans. In our recipe for Spaghetti Genovese we give pesto a nutritional boost by adding spinach and toss it all together with fiber-rich whole-wheat pasta for a warm, comforting weeknight meal. Serve with escarole and radicchio salad…….

 
Zesty Shrimp & Black Bean Salad
Loaded with fresh tomatoes, peppers and cilantro and seasoned with cumin and chile, this shrimp and black bean salad recipe has all the flavors of a great fresh salsa and is a quick and easy no-cook recipe. Serve with tortilla chips or fresh corn tortillas……

 
Mirin-Poached Salmon with Spring Salad
Poaching fish with a little flavorful liquid may be the easiest way to cook fish! This quick poached-fish recipe stars salmon, but tuna, mahi-mahi or cod work just as well. Look for pea sprouts, also called “pea shoots,” at farmers’ markets and in well-stocked supermarkets. Or use 1 more cup thinly sliced snap peas instead…….

Today’s Menu: Chipotle Honey – Roasted Chicken w/ Stewed Pinto Beans

 

 

Chipotle Honey - Roasted Chicken 014
Just as our snow total on the ground started to dwindle we get another shot of about 2-3 inches. On top of that we got some sleet and freezing rain. Warmer temperatures on the way they say, in the 40’s. So not much going on today, did a little housework and then sofa city! Me and the remote for the afternoon. For dinner tonight a new recipe, Chipotle Honey – Roasted Chicken w/ Stewed Pinto Beans.

 

 
A couple of new recipes for dinner. These come from an issue of Clean Eating Magazine, Chipotle Honey – Roasted Chicken w/ Stewed Pinto Beans. Another one of those recipes that looked and sounded too good to pass up. The recipe calls for; Pam with Olive Oil Cooking Spray, 1 tbsp Raw Honey, 2 1/2 tsp Safflower Oil, divided ( I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil), 1 tsp Lime Zest plus 2 tsp fresh Lime Juice (divided), 1/4 plus 1/8 tsp Chipotle Chile Powder(divided), 1/2 tsp Sea Salt (divided), Pinch fresh Ground Black Pepper, 4 Bone – In Chicken Breasts (I used only two Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts), 1 small Red Onion (finely chopped), 1 tbsp Minced Garlic, 1 tbsp finely chopped seeded Jalapeno Chile Pepper, 1 tbsp unsalted Tomato Paste, 1 15 – oz BPA – free can unsalted Pinto Beans, drained and rinsed, 1 cup Low – Sodium Chicken Broth, and 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh Cilantro leaves (divided.)

 

 

 

To prepare it, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and mist with cooking spray. In a small bowl , combine Honey, 2 tsp Oil, Lime Juice, 1/4 tsp Chile Powder, 1/4 tsp Sea Salt, and Black Pepper. Using Paper Towels, pat Chicken dry and place on prepared sheet. Brush Chicken evenly with Honey Mixture. Roast for about 30 to 35 minutes, turning over halfway, until golden brown and Chicken reaches 165 degreChipotle Honey - Roasted Chicken 003es when tested with an instant read thermometer in thickest part. Remove from oven, cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Using tongs, turn Chicken to dip both sides in caramelized juices on sheet. (Alternatively, use a brush to brush it on.) Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan on medium, heat remaining 1/2 tsp Oil. Add Onion, Garlic, Jalapeno, remaining 1/4 tsp Sea Salt.Saute until Onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add Tomato Paste and saute for 1 minute. Add Beans and Broth, and bring to a simmer on medium high. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes more. Stir in Lime Zest and 2 tbsp Cilantro. To serve divide Beans on to bowls or plates and top each serving with 1 piece Chicken. Drizzle any remaining Juices from baking pan over Chicken and sprinkle with remaining tbsp Cilantro.

 

 

Chipotle Honey - Roasted Chicken 001
Fairly easy to prepare and worth anytime it takes. The Chicken is just flat out delicious! The Spices, Lime and Jalapeno all combine to make one flavorful Chicken Breast. Also the recipe turns out a good Bean dish also, that makes the perfect side dish for the Chicken. Another Keeper Recipe. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Penne alla Primavera
Penne tossed with spring vegetables, such as carrots, morel mushrooms, asparagus, peas and fava beans, along with loads of fresh herbs is a perfect example of Mario Batali’s rustic approach to great-tasting Italian food. When both fava beans and morel mushrooms are in season, by all means use them in this recipe. But if you can’t find either of those, substitute what looks best. Basic cremini mushrooms will work and frozen lima beans are a good option…..

 

 

Grilled Shrimp with Melon & Pineapple Salsa
Grilled shrimp is perfectly accented by this light, summery pineapple-melon salsa. The flavors are bright and fresh, just right for a hot day. Use just one melon or any combination of melons—including watermelon—for the versatile salsa. For best flavor marinate the shrimp overnight…..
