Skillet Angel Chicken

As much as I love my slow cooker, sometimes I just forget to load it until it’s too late.  On days like that, a skillet can come in handy.  Skillets cook things quicker than baking them and much quicker than a crockpot, of course.

The other night I decided to make a skillet version of Angel Chicken.  This is altered a bit from the original Angel Chicken recipe.  Instead of the Italian Seasoning mix, I used Herbs de Provence.  You could use a favorite of herbs and spices in this dish, depending on what you have available and what you’re in the mood for.

Italian Herb Salted Pork Roast and Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

This is an amazing meal.  First, it only takes a few minutes to put it in the slow cooker.  And it tastes fantastic.  The pork roast is tender and full of flavor, thanks to Italian Herb Salt, garlic and white wine.

I’ll definitely be making this one again.  Next time, I will add more whole cloves of garlic.  Jim and I were searching in the potatoes to find the cooked garlic.  They were perfect with the potatoes.

I love a meal that tastes like you’ve slaved over the stove, when you really only spent five or ten minutes putting it in the crockpot.  That’s my kind of cooking.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this:  [Read more…]

Italian Seasoned Salt and White Wine Pork Tenderloin – Easy and Moist!

I made this for us on Christmas Day.  And then I made it again a few weeks ago.

Seasoned with homemade Italian Seasoned Salt and doused with white wine, this is an easy and impressive main dish.  It would make a fabulous Easter dinner.

I paired it with garlic cream cheese mashed potatoes.  Just boil the potatoes and drain them.  Add butter and 4 oz of cream cheese, along with the garlic clove from the meat then mash away.  Delicious!

Garlic Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

I’ve had a beautiful rosemary plant growing in my garden all summer.  It’s one of the few things that did well out there.  But I hadn’t used any of the rosemary.  That’s crazy, isn’t it?

So, I decided that using sprigs of rosemary along with chicken, potatoes, garlic and white wine could be delicious.  And to make it super easy, I cooked it in the slow cooker.  It turned out great, a tasty version of basic chicken and potatoes.  I used boneless chicken, but the dish would have even more flavor if you used chicken with bones.  What is it about bones that adds so much flavor?  [Read more…]

Angel Hair with Red Onion and Black Olives

This dish is full of flavor – garlic, red onion, black olives, basil, parsley and Parmesan all in white wine sauce.  It pairs up beautifully with grilled chicken, although the chicken didn’t make it into the photo.

Best of all, it is quick to fix.

Ravioli with Red Onion, White Wine, and Asiago

This tasted like something from a good restaurant.  It can be made in the time it takes to boil water and cook the ravioli.

I found the Asiago cheese in the cheese case near the deli.  It was the same price as Parmesan, which can be substituted if you can’t find it.  The label states that Asiago has a “mild and nutty” flavor.

Oh, I’m detecting nuttiness.

Name that movie.

I’m pretty sure Remy and Gusteau would approve of this dish.

Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Wine

I know there’s no chicken in that ingredient picture.  I think raw chicken is one of the least beautiful things in the food world.  The roasted whole chicken doesn’t look much better.

Thank goodness it tastes wonderful!  This can be a main dish for a really nice dinner, but it’s super easy to make.  Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

Honey Hoisin Chicken in the Slow Cooker

This dinner was waiting for us when we came in from a marathon dentist appointment today.  It was so nice to throw some rice on to cook, steam some broccoli and sit down to dinner.  We ate every bite of it too.

The prep is simple, with just a few ingredients.  In case you’re wondering what the dixie cup in the picture holds, it’s white wine.  I froze wine in dixie cups instead of using ziplock bags this time.  It works great.
