Main Dish

Chicken Stew with Salsa Verde

As we’re coming out of the produce wasteland that’s been happening during Bountiful Basket’s annual break, I had to take stock of what was actually in my refrigerator and come up with something for dinner. I managed to find some tomatillos (from the Mexican pack that was offered the last […]

Mini-Chimis

My family loves chimichangas.  They can be made with chicken, beef, pork, or just veggie. These are great to make with the wrap pack add-on.  Use the spicy wraps as your base.  If you have leftover chicken, roast, or hamburger, these are easy to assemble and have for dinner. These […]

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Anyone who has received butter lettuce in their Bountiful Basket knows that it can be a little unsettling to put something that claims to be “alive” and comes with a dirty root ball into your refrigerator. We also know that it’s delicious. Both times I’ve gotten it, I knew I […]

Sesame Chicken

This is the best sesame chicken I have ever eaten! I got the recipe from a friend and made few changes. When I make this, I feel like I’m eating at a Chinese restaurant, only this is healthy fresh ingredients and I am saving money by eating at home! I […]

Brussels Sprouts and Parmesan Frittata

My chickens have an incredible ability to produce more eggs than we can eat at breakfast, so we are constantly on the lookout for dinner recipes that have the ability to use a ton of eggs!  This recipe fits the bill, and could only perhaps be improved by a smidge […]

Crunchy Panko Chicken Tenders

If you love fried chicken but don’t want the grease, then try baked chicken tenders.  Baked chicken tenders are a huge hit with kids and adults of all ages! Baking the chicken instead of frying is just as tasty, healthier and easier to clean up! To simplify the process I used […]

Tangy Cran-Orange Coconut Chicken

When I was a small child, I would awake Christmas Eve morning to the smells of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, oranges and cranberries that wafted around the clinking sounds of Grandma in the kitchen preparing everyone’s favorite dishes for our dinner later that day.  Grandpa would be in the his chair […]

Harvest Stew

I was calling this hungarian stew (not sure why) until I asked a friend what she called it.   Harvest stew…..as in what is fresh for the season.    I thought that fit.    I have been known to sub what I can to save money.    I love to […]

Chicken Enchilasagna Casserole

One of the things that participating in Bountiful Baskets has done has helped to expand my food horizons. A couple of years after I started participating in Bountiful Baskets, our local Farm Education Foundation started to host a Food Swap (disclaimer: I’m on the board, and the food swap is […]
