Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Tender chicken breasts stuffed with a creamy and garlicky filling and covered in a white thick cream.     This recipe is pretty simple and it can be achieved in 30 minutes or less. First, we need to make the filling that just has three main ingredients: Cream cheese — I use low fat cream...

Chicken and Pineapple Sandwich

Chicken and Pineapple Sandwich

  Pineapple in a sandwich. I won’t lie to you; the first time I saw this sandwich in a Portuguese bakery I had the same reaction that I had with “Hawaiian pizza” — until this day I can’t stand that aberration. I worked next to a small bakery and everybody went there for lunch. It was inexpensive, and the “tostas” (sandwiches) were kind of a legend. So, in adventurous spirit one day I ordered the infamous “tosta de frango e...

One Skillet Cheesy Chicken and Bacon Pot Pie

After years of watching how Ree (the Pioneer Woman) and Lindsay (Pinch of Yum) made chicken pot pies for special occasions — Easter, which we don’t celebrate in South America —, and licking the screen out of pure envy, I decided that this was my year to make my first pot pie. It turned out amazing and I was walking on clouds. I even made my own version and I love it.       For an inexperienced American food...

Coconut Curry Chicken Thighs

Coconut Curry Chicken Thighs

Indian food has something magical when you cook it. My entire house smells like a potpourri of exotic species. I just love it.     Indian food has that homey factor. It just makes you feel good and happy. It is highly spiced, but it doesn’t matter because the balance of the curry is amazing. Usually, every curry works incredibly well with a bowl of basmati rice. Basmati rice is completely different than the regular Occidental rice. It is longer...

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are one of the tastiest parts of this protein. You can get a generous amount of meat covered in a crispy skin that works so well with any kind of glaze. This week I wanted something tasty but fresh —in Lisbon we are at 30ºC— and I had some frozen chicken thighs waiting for some inspiration. I decided that the best way to make a fresh meal with the chicken was with a citrus glaze. Orange, lime and...
