New Food: Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

December 22nd, 2012 Comments off

If you subscribe to my Pinterest page, my @douglaswelch Twitter account or my Google+ feed, you know that I am always finding recipes I want to try. This series, New Food, will highlight some of those finds as we make them for the first time in our own kitchen. Then, I’ll report back to you on the results — for better or worse! — Douglas

Sweet and Spicy Chicken - 2

Sweet and Spicy Chicken - 1

I discovered this recipe for Sweet and Spicy chicken via Pinterest on Jennifer Poole’s Pinterest account. This is basically a way to dress up boneless chicken breasts and it works quite nicely. In the past I have made a prosciutto-wrapped and stuffed chicken breast and this is somewhat like an American version, using smoked bacon as the wrapper.

The spices worked wonderfully with the dish and the addition of the strip of back brought a huge amount of flavor without adding a ton of calories. Due to time constraints I cooked these entirely in a skillet on the stove top, but I think it would work even better baked, as called for in the recipe, I had trouble with the bacon coming off when I turned the chicken breasts. It wasn’t something that ruined the dish but baking would have made it easier.

If you are looking for a great way to dress up plain chicken breast, in a way that brings new flavors to the game, give this recipe a try.

Recipe: Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt – 4 ingredients

October 15th, 2012 Comments off

Only four basic ingredients, so that is goo right from the start. It also means that there are a lot of possibilities to use different sweeteners, add-ins and more. I don’t eat a lot of ice cream, but I have grown very fond of making my own instead of buying from the store. The host of frozen yogurt recipes I find are also helping to expand my recipes and tastes for different types of frozen treats. Looking forward to trying this one.

Food: Baked, Wonton-Wrapped, Mozzarella Sticks

September 24th, 2012 Comments off

I am always looking for a way of getting that bad, bad, (yet good) taste in a good, better, healthier package. While these are certainly not something you would want eat every day, it is a lighter, baked, version of traditional deep-fried mozzarella sticks. I have made some baked mozzarella sticks in the past, which were OK, but I think these wonton wrappers would give them a nice crunch and percent the cheese from oozing everywhere, too. Definitely something I am going to try.

Food: Polenta-Pistachio Cake

September 15th, 2012 Comments off

This looks to be such a leap above the typical box cake. I will be making this as soon as I can. I love cornmeal and I love pistachio and I love the idea of combining them into — what I consider — a fairly rustic cake. I could see the Sicilian relatives making a cake like this. Simple, unadorned, but wonderful.
