Asparagus and Tomato Sauté with Balsamic and Feta

Asparagus and Tomato Sauté with Balsamic and Feta

by Pam on March 5, 2014

We eat a lot of asparagus around here this time of year. I decided to do a quick sauté with the asparagus spears and grape tomato halves until crisp-tender. I drizzled the top with a really good balsamic vinegar and feta cheese crumbles. It was delicious, healthy, and it paired nicely with the Spicy Roasted Chicken Drumsticks[1] and the Basmati Rice with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Fresh Parsley[2].

Heat a large sauté pan with olive oil. Add the asparagus spears then cook, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes (longer if the asparagus is really thick – shorter if they are really thin), until crisp tender. Add the grape tomato halves and cook for 2 minutes. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place the asparagus and tomatoes on a serving plate then drizzle with a good balsamic vinegar, to taste, then top with feta cheese crumbles, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Spicy Roasted Chicken Drumsticks

Spicy Roasted Chicken Drumsticks

by Pam on March 4, 2014

We have been eating a lot of drumsticks around my house lately because my kids are “over chicken”. It seems that drumsticks are the only part of a chicken that they seem to enjoy, so drumsticks it is. I did a semi-spicy dry rub for this recipe and it was a hit with all of us. The chicken was quite simple to make, spelled delicious while it roasted, and tasted moist, juicy, tasty. I served this chicken with the Basmati Rice with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Fresh Parsley[1] and some asparagus for a healthy and delicious dinner that we all liked.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all the seasonings together in a bowl; mix until well combined.

Season the chicken drumsticks evenly with the seasonings. Heat an OVEN PROOF pan that’s been coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add the chicken drumsticks to the HOT pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the chicken over and place into the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy.
