Balsamic Chicken & Vegetables

This is a recipe that I should’ve tried a couple of months ago but I kept putting it off because I never seemed to have all the ingredients at one time. Last week I ended up getting everything I needed so I decided to give it a go anyway and hope for the best. 

First of all, the food came out looking beautiful! I almost didn’t want to eat it because it was so pretty (we still ate it though). Secondly, this recipe includes a good amount of carrots (I hate carrots), but surprisingly I still enjoyed it. I don’t cook just for myself so sometimes I make dishes that include foods that I don’t necessarily enjoy eating (i.e. carrots, salmon, etc.). Both of the vegetables in this recipe were tasty though, and that’s probably due to the sauce that they were cooked in. Lastly, the recipe calls for you to remove the chicken from your pan and put it on a serving plate prior to cooking the vegetables… don’t do that if you have no way of keeping the chicken warm. No one wants to eat cold chicken and warm veggies. I don’t have a serving plate that has the ability to keep the food warm so I kept my chicken in the pan with the vegetables and my chicken wasn’t burnt at all.

Baked Ravioli

There is nothing better than a cheap and easy to make recipe that tastes great. This 3-ingredient baked ravioli is the epitome of a cheap and easy recipe. All you need is the frozen ravioli, pasta sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. It doesn’t take long to cook; about 5 minutes of prep time and 45 minutes of baking and it’s done! And there’s not a lot left to clean up afterwards. Everything is baked in one dish and you don’t need measuring spoons or anything, so you really can just throw your serving dish in the dishwasher when you’re done.

One-Pot Chicken Lo Mein

This one-pot recipe was really easy and fun to make. Literally, all you have to do is put all of the ingredients in a stock pot and turn on the stove. It took about 30 minutes and had my kitchen smelling really good! I also had enough to take leftovers to lunch for a couple of days so it’s a money-saver as well. I only had one issue and that was cutting the carrots; I had never done it before, so I had to ask my fiancé for help since he’s stronger than me. Who knew that carrots were so hard to cut? It doesn’t taste exactly like the chicken lo mein that you would get from a Chinese restaurant. That may be a good or bad thing depending on your taste buds, but my fiancé (who’s actually half-Chinese) and I loved it. And lastly, the best part is cleanup. Since everything is done in one pot, there’s no real mess to clean up once you’re done cooking.
