Layers of corn tortillas, chicken, enchilada sauce and cheese are melted into one casserole. Though it's not as quick as pouring from a can, the dish still comes together easily and can be prepared in advance so that you can simply pop it in the oven to heat it through when you are ready to eat.
We liked our Clam Pasta from a while back so much that we made it with lemon chicken this time. It is a light and colorful pasta dish full of some of our favorite summer vegetables: zucchini, summer squash, peppers and tomatoes.

Pozole (also commonly spelled posole) is a traditional Mexican soup made with hominy and meat, such as chicken or pork. This version which comes from my world-traveling friend uses chicken breasts and comes together quickly, but the longer you let it simmer the more the flavors will develop. But in my opinion, it is all of the garnishes that "make" the soup, adding color, texture and a myriad of flavors to each spoonful.
These enchiladas come together quickly because the tortillas, chicken and sauce can be prepared in advance. Using homemade ingredients produces the yummiest result but if you are short on time or energy you can always substitute store-bought versions.
Inspired by the lettuce wraps at Asian-fusion restaurants such as P.F. Chang's, this Italian rendition is satisfying and light and makes a perfect lunch, appetizer or light dinner. It is also a great way to turn leftover chicken parmigiana into a new meal, combining the main course chicken dish and the salad all into one.
This version of Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic is easy because you put all of the ingredients in a casserole dish, bake it in the oven and forget about it. The end result is a rich, comforting meal. If the thought of forty cloves of garlic frightens you, there is no need to worry. The garlic flavor mellows as the cloves cook and when they are done, they are rich and buttery, perfect for slathering on your favorite bread or even the chicken itself.
Serve your favorite chili in baked potato "bowls" for a hearty and nutritious meal. The chili helps to disguise the skins of the potatoes which are actually the most nutrient-dense part of the potato.
I've received such good reviews about my homemade chicken sausage that I decided to transform it into meatballs. Spinach is the star ingredient that earned these meatballs a spot on my Tapas For a Cure menu, but I also love the fact that they are made with chicken.
