Mediterranean Chicken with Harissa-Yogurt Sauce and Pistachios (Gluten-Free)

Mediterranean Chicken with Harissa-Yogurt Sauce and Pistachios; 2015 Jane Bonacci, The Heritage Cook

 

If you are anything like me, you are always looking for new ways to prepare chicken. I tend to fall back to my comfort zone, repeating similar flavors and techniques over and over. One of the things I like the most about developing recipes for clients is that it forces me to think outside my normal boundaries, challenging myself to come up with new and creative ways to make meals.

White and Wild Rice Pilaf #SensationalSides

White & Wild Rice Pilaf; 2015 Jane Bonacci, The Heritage Cook

This week’s Food Network Sensational Sides theme is asparagus, the queen of springtime vegetables. I never liked it as a child because my mom always use canned vegetables for our dinners (bleh!), but when I got older I discovered how delicious fresh vegetables were and now it is my favorite. There is nothing better than the beautiful pencil asparagus arriving in stores and farmers’ markets when the sun is shining and the days are getting longer. Seeing the bright green stalks lets us know that the huge piles of freshly picked produce heaped on each table at the market is right around the corner.
