Marinated Kale and Chicken Bowls with Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

recipes May 14, 2024

 

I was in the mood to make a healthy bowl for dinner tonight, and came across this great dish from Lindsay at Pinch of Yum. 

Kale? I had just picked and washed fresh kale from our garden a few hours earlier!

Avocados? They were on sale this week for 3 for $1 and I have a HUGE bowl of them!

Chicken? I picked up a rotisserie chicken from Costco a couple days ago and hadn't used the chicken breasts yet.

Sun dried tomatoes? I had been eyeing a jar in my pantry for days, thinking how good they sounded.

Lemons? Our neighbors have a tree and had given us a big bag of them.

So...that was that, and I was off to the races, augmenting the recipe by just shaking some lemon pepper on the already cooked chicken that I had. And doubling up on the avocados because they are just sooo good and good for you, too.

We all loved it and I think you and your family will, too! Enjoy!

Marinade for the kale and chicken:

1/3 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon...

"It will knock out most sicknesses in three days," according to health teacher Barbara O'Neill, when she talks about her "flu bomb" recipe. 

This natural remedy, recommended by Barbara O'Neill, provides the body with the environment it needs to heal, without the negative side effects that come with pharmaceutical drugs. (It's also cost-effective!)

Each ingredient in this recipe serves a specific purpose in promoting healing within the body.

  • Garlic, a "natural antibiotic" also helps with boosting the immune system. (One study cited that one clove of garlic is 6x more potent than the antibiotic Tetracycline) It's also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-yeast.
  • Ginger has anti-inflammaory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and is best known to help reduce nausea.

Cinnamon Tea Ring

recipes Jan 16, 2016

Had it not been for the invention of the breadmaker, I am not sure I would have had the patience to carry on this lovely and delicious holiday tradition. But with this tool, it is fast and fairly easy. True confession: I have 5 breadmakers (most passed on to me by friends), and I typically use them in groups of at least 3 to make the most of my mess and efforts. Here is one of my most requested recipes.

 Ingredients

2 ¼ tsp. yeast

4 ¼ c. bread flour

¼ c. sugar

heaping tsp. salt

2 eggs

1/3 c. oil

1 c. milk

½ c. water

You will also need: cinnamon, sugar, powdered sugar, and milk. Pecans are optional.

Directions

Add the 8 ingredients into your breadmaker in the order listed. Set on “manual” or “dough” mode and press “start”.

When dough is ready (about 1.5 hours later), divide the dough into 3 parts. Roll each into an oblong rectangle about 15”x9”. Melt 3+ Tablespoons of butter and spread. Mix 1 c. sugar...
