Lime Roasted Chicken

Because my Tomato and Hearts of Palm Salad needed something sturdy to accompany it, I decided to make a roasted chicken. If you haven’t roasted a chicken in a while (or ever, for that matter) I am going to suggest you roll up your sleeves and give it a […]

Farfalle with My Favorite Color Sauce and Roasted Vegetables

If you can’t tell what color the sauce is from this picture, here are a few clues:    A Kitchenbelle.com original.

Chicken Picadillo

I’ve been slacking a bit in the dinner department lately and I haven’t liked it one bit!  A combination of plans filling the last couple of Sundays, very hot weather that makes me a bit lethargic and less than eager to hang out behind the stove, […]

Easy and Light Weeknight Corn and Chicken Chowder

I don’t usually make rich meals on weeknights, however, for some reason this recipe caught my eye.  And, as it turns out, it isn’t actually all that rich! It wasn’t super heavy the way chowders typically are. I used 1 % milk and not an […]

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

After an indulgent holiday weekend, I was flipping through America’s Test Kitchen Light & Healthy 2010 in search of something fresh and light to get us back on track.  These Asian Chicken lettuce wraps caught my eye.  A little over a year ago now, I […]

Rosemary Chicken with White Beans

This meal is the definition of an easy and quick weeknight meal.  The tomatoes make this almost like a chunky soup/stew.  In fact, I wish we had some fresh bread on hand because this is a perfect dish for dunking!  I served this with a simple […]

Game Day Loaded Quesadillas

The New England Patriots are a big deal in our household.  Autumn Sundays revolve around the game and I love that it gives me a reason to cook hearty and delicious food.  My husband made a request for some quesadillas yesterday (I love when he makes specific […]

Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

It has been a difficult week in the land of Kitchenbelle.  While enjoying the weekend at BlogHer Food ’09 in beautiful San Francisco (at the fabulous cocktail party hosted by The Mushroom Channel, to be exact) I learned of the unexpected death of a dear friend of […]

Curried Chicken Salad

As I previously mentioned, I have been in search of low-fuss no-cook appetizers.  There is nothing worse than slaving over a hot oven in the middle of summer!  (That kind of heat makes me grumpy and that is no way to greet guests!)  Again, with […]

Middle Eastern Quinoa with Chicken and Apricots

After my first experience with quinoa, I’ve kept my eye out for  other appealing recipes. My husband wasn’t home the last time I made quinoa so I was interested to hear his feedback on this dish.  He really enjoyed the chicken but the quinoa did not […]
