GINGER-SOY CHICKEN THIGHS

ginger-soy

Calories 355 per serving (serving size – 2 thighs, ½ cup rice, 1 ½ TBS sauce)
Makes 4 servings
Tags: chicken – boneless, rice
NOTES:  Easy to make and Delicious!
We always use the apricot preserves with ginger as a substitute and it works very well.
If you will be making less than the full recipe remember to use a smaller pan, so the sauce doesn’t spread too thin and burn.
The recipe and timing is designed for boneless chicken and it makes a difference.
Neither of us use boil-in-bag rice – we make rice as we normally do and then add the scallions.  You can also add peas or other cooked vegetables to the rice to complete the meal.

NOTES: Delicious easy soup.  This is a “go to” soup – can use this basic recipe and with a little imagination and changing the cooking times you can use this for lots of different vegetables and combinations of vegetables – keep the spices or change them, keep the walnuts or leave out.  You can also try roasting the vegetables or just the onions before.

ROASTED ASPARAGUS SOUP WITH CRISPY PROSCIUTTO

ROASTED ASPARAGUS SOUP WITH CRISPY PROSCIUTTO

Calories 166 per serving
Makes 4 servings
Tags: asparagus, prosciutto
NOTES: Delicious soup.  A creamy tasting soup without the cream.  The Arborio rice (short-grain Italian rice) thickens it just a bit, but still a very smooth texture.  Lemon isn’t necessary nor the prosciutto, but are welcome additions.  The next time you are making asparagus as a side dish, make extra for this soup.  This soup becomes a meal with a salad or a lovely starter dish to a larger meal.  Check out the tips at the bottom of the original recipe for some variations. If you like asparagus, you will enjoy this soup….
