Okay - here are a couple recipes from my cookbook that I published:

3 lbs. pork, chicken or beef
1-28 oz. can whole green chilies
1 small diced onion
1-14 oz. can diced tomato
2 T. chili powder
1 t. garlic salt

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook 8 hours on low. Use for tacos (low-carb tortillas) or just add shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and salsa for a taco salad.

2-1/2 lbs. chicken wings
3 T. vegetable oil
3 T. melted unsalted butter
1 T. hot sauce

Remove wing tip and discard. Season chicken with salt and pepper . Mix remaining ingredients. Coat wings. Fry chicken 10-12 minutes in hot oil, turning occasionally, until the skin is crisp and golden. Remove and drain on paper towels. Combine melted butter and pepper sauce in a bowl. Pour over wing then bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

2 T. butter
1 crushed garlic cloves
2 T. dry vermouth or dry white wine
2 c. heavy cream
Parmesan cheese
1 bunch cooked, chopped broccoli
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Sauté garlic in butter. Add vermouth or wine and reduce slightly. Stir in cream. Simmer. As mixture begins to thicken, add shredded Parmesan cheese stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Add broccoli. Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes. Serve over chicken breast. Variation: add mushrooms to the sauce when adding the broccoli or substitute small shrimp or scallops for the chicken.

I didn't realize how many chicken recipes I had in there until I pulled these.

Italian Marinated Chicken Breasts

This is pretty basic -- but really good. We marinate our chicken breasts in Zesty Italian dressing (more garlic than regular Italian) overnight. Then grill! I do 6# at a time -- they're usually gone w/in a couple of days -- great to have on hand for salads or as an entree. I've also done venison this way (it's about the only way I REALLY like venison steak). And it seems like I've heard of people doing pork chops this way too.



ps Thanks, Phyliss, for keeping us going w/these threads. They are great!

Chicken Tore (an old recipe from my mother)
3 pounds cut up chicken shaken in a bag with
1/4 cup flour (I use just 1/8)
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Melted margarine or butter.

1. Heat oven to 350 and melt about 3 tablespoons margarine or butter in pan.
2. Place coated chicken in pan, skinside down, turning once to coat with marg.
3. Put a few more bits of marg or butter on top.
4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, turning once during this time.
5. Turn oven to 450 and bake another 10 minutes. (this really browns it)

Carb count 24 with 1/4 cup flour, 12 with 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) - SO 3 carbs per serving if you serve 4. This is excellent cold, by the way.

Hey, I know I'm a week late, but . . .

Chicken Picata

You need:
olive or vegetable oil
chicken breast(s)
butter -- about 2 teaspoons for each breast, more if you like or if you have a big pan
fresh lemon(s) -- about 1/4 t grated rind and 1 tablespoon juice for each breast
capers -- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon for each breast
fresh parsley
salt and pepper

Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts between pieces of wax paper to flatten -- the idea is to make the breasts closer to a uniform thickness so they will cook quickly and evenly.

Saute breasts in sufficient olive or vegetable oil until cooked through and browned on the outside -- approximately 3 to 4 minutes a side. Remove chicken from pan and pour out or blot with a paper towel any remaining cooking oil.

With the pan still off the heat, melt the butter in the warm pan. Scrape up any browned chicken bits. Add lemon rind and juice, capers, and parsley. Heat gently over very low heat. Do not allow to boil or your sauce will evaporate! Add chicken breasts and turn to coat in sauce.

Serve right away.

This is traditionally made with white wine and lemon juice but I find the addition of the wine makes the sauce too acidic for me. I like the lemony flavour of this recipe.
