In Westmoreland, Tennessee, Daucia Brooks brings a little heat to supper time with this speedy meal-in-one. "Not all of my family members like to eat low-fat foods," she notes, "but they regularly request the dish."
A trip through the potluck line at a 4-H supper introduced me to this luscious cold summer salad. The ingredients sound a bit unusual, but they blend beautifully together. Besides cooking, I enjoy crafting, gardening and watching birds and wildlife that populate our rural area.
To brighten dark midwinter days, Marcy Hall relies on her mouthwatering microwave chicken with its sunny splash of citrus and warm dash of curry. “The thick sauce is also great served over rice.”—March Hall, Visalia, California
My Grandma Inky grew up in India and passed down this recipe to my mother, who then passed it down to me. The recipe brings back fond memories of the family gathered around the table, enjoying this delicious meal and catching up on one another's day. I tweaked the ingredients a bit to fit my toddler's taste buds, but it's just as scrumptious as Grandma's own.
I discovered this recipe while in college. I used a large-scale version to feed 20 hungry students. Everyone complimented the tasty combination of tomato and spices.—Tim Buckmaster, Millsboro, Delaware
I love to try new recipes for my husband and me, and I actually have cookbooks and recipes from all over the world. When I find a recipe that's well-received, I make a copy and put it in a protective sleeve in a loose-leaf binder. I now have quite a few huge binders!
I updated this chicken and rice dish by adding veggies and cashews to give it fresh and crunchy appeal. The green chilies in the tomatoes give it just the right little kick, but if you really like spice, add fresh, diced jalapeño. —Denise Klibert, Shreveport, Louisiana
