Need ideas for a quick family supper? Chicken for Dinner provides plenty of satisfying options. On a busy weeknight, try stir-frying slices of chicken breast with fresh ginger, shiitake mushrooms and snow peas. Broiling is another fast way to prepare chicken, producing crisp, golden skin and succulent meat. To make broiled chicken even better, add a flavorful mustard-herb topping.
Chicken is also a natural for easy yet elegant entertaining. For a sunny taste of Provence, serve rustic braised chicken simmered with white wine, diced tomatoes and Kalamata olives, seasoned with herbes de Provence. Petite Cornish hens roasted with juicy oranges and sweet onions are sure to delight your guests.
When it comes to memorable meals, Fish for Dinner will provide lots of creative options. A savory suppertime hash showcases chunks of tender salmon and Yukon Gold potatoes enriched with a bit of cream. Or whip up an Italian-inspired meal featuring garlicky sautéed shrimp with a pan sauce of lemon, butter and fresh parsley.
Halibut is an exceptionally versatile type of fish, lending itself to an array of international flavors. Dress up roasted halibut fillets and crisp fingerling potatoes with a lively tomatillo salsa spiked with lime juice and cilantro. For a dinner party dish with Provençal panache, bake halibut fillets with fresh tomatoes, garlic and herbs.
