Eggplant parmigiana is a great way to get your family to eat eggplant because by dredging it in egg and flour, it becomes soft and tender and the flavor mellows out. In this rendition of eggplant parmesan, I have combined chicken and eggplant parmesan strips into a sandwich. When mixed in with the chicken strips, your family may not even notice that eggplant is included.

The origins of chicken cordon bleu are unclear but it is thought to be an American dish, not French, as the name implies. I baked the chicken to make the dish lighter, and added a creamy mushroom sauce to complete this rich, comforting (and guilt-free) meal.

Chicken Tacos

Monday, June 7, 2010


We liked the carne asada tacos that we made a while ago so much that we decided to make them with chicken. The marinade is very similar to that which we used on the steak. It is such a simple dinner to pull together but the flavors are so satisfying.

The dish, literally meaning "rice with chicken," is thought to have originated in Spain and has definite similarities with the popular Spanish dish, paella. The pimiento-stuffed green olives in this version are a signature addition from Puerto Rico.
