Chicken with Ginger

Now that’s it’s really hot out I’ve run out of recipe ideas so I’ve been trying out some new ones. Here’s what was made:

from Barefoot Contessa Cookbook
I’ve always wanted to make pesto and this was my first try. It was good but all the flavors were really strong. Next time I wouldn’t saturate the pasta as much with it and maybe use less garlic?

Lettuce Wraps

Jordan posted about these so I gave them a try. Really good. Really healthy and a perfect summer meal. It was even better the next day for lunch- cold.

I’m always game for new chicken recipes and this one looked really good. It was really easy and very tasty but the amount of ginger was little much. I’d use less next time. Overall, better than most stirfrys I’ve made previously.

Chicken Gyros
with Tzatziki

I make the chicken gyros all the time and they are really good, but I had never made the homemade tzatziki with it. Delicious!


I have a ton of basil in my garden. I’m going to try the pesto today.

Thanks for sharing these. I’ve been needing some new recipes to use. By the way, I LOVE the lime chicken soup recipe you shared a while back (can’t remember the exact name right now).
