Slow Cooker Balsamic Shredded Beef - HIT! - couldn't be easier to put together; slightly sweet flavor with a hint of balsamic; changes for next time - increase red crushed pepper and garlic since their flavors got lost in the sauce; great winter dinner!
White Chicken Chili - HIT! - Creamy, mildly spicy, and filling; Made two changes: Used regular cream cheese instead of neufchatel since I had that on hand, and added pre-cooked chicken at the end instead of starting with raw chicken; Next time I'll double all spices to punch up the flavor; Overall very yummy!
Chicken with Honey-Beer Sauce - HIT! - Super easy to put together; nice sweet and savory flavor; used a pale ale and the beer was not too overpowering; made 1 change - added garlic powder and dried thyme when seasoning the chicken with salt and pepper; recipe is a keeper!
Southwestern Grilled Chicken Recipe with Lime Butter
Southwestern Grilled Chicken with Lime Butter - HIT! - Tasty, not too spicy with a hint of sweet from the cinnamon; lime butter added a nice zip; made 1 change - used boneless, skinless chicken fillets instead of bone-in chicken, sliced them into tenderloin sized pieces, then marinated them in the spice paste for about an hour before grilling; Yum!
Indian Sticky Chicken - HIT! - used boneless chicken tenders instead of thighs and cooked in coconut oil instead of olive oil; nice mild spice; finished sauce wasn't very thick or sticky, so next time will add juice from just half a lemon rather than a whole; quick and easy and will make again!
Red Lentils and Spinach in Masala Sauce - HIT! - easy to make; nice mixture of spices with some smoky heat; served with rice and cooked, shredded chicken on the side for those who wanted to add meat; great vegetarian dish
