Dinner and dessert.

Tonight was A.J.’s choice in the meal plan. (Well, he didn’t pick it tonight, but he chose it back when I was planning, and today was his slot in the menu.) He chose a new recipe for us all to try, based on a picture in a cookbook.

I served it over brown rice, pairing it with sugar snap peas and mandarin oranges. I thought it was super-tasty, and I will definitely be adding the recipe to our permanent collection! I’ll share it, in case anyone else is interested.

Curried Honey Barbecue Chicken

  • 1 can (20 oz.) pineapple chunks
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 bottle (18 oz.) honey barbecue sauce
  • hot cooked rice

Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set fruit and juice aside. Sprinkle chicken with curry powder. In a large skillet, brown the chicken on both sides in oil over medium-high heat (6-7 minutes on each side). Remove and keep warm.

In the same skillet, saute the onion, green pepper, and pineapple until vegetables are tender and pineapple is golden brown. Stir in barbecue sauce and reserved pineapple juice. Return chicken to the pan. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Serve over rice.

Yield: 4 servings

We had dessert tonight as well, though it wasn’t planned ahead of time. I had a few apples I needed to use up, and I thought it would be nice to make fresh cookies to welcome our next-door neighbors back home. (We’ve been their ‘Quarters Watch’ for the last two weeks or so.) One of my old faves – Apple Spice Drops – fit both bills nicely. I generally use Granny Smith apples for baking, but in this case, I used up the Braeburns I had in the fruit bowl. It worked just as beautifully!

They are a light, fluffy apple cookie frosted in an apple buttercream. Oh, but I could eat a dozen of these at one time, I swear!
