Asian Lemon Chicken
This chicken was super yummy and not as much work as this orange chicken. If you haven't cooked with cornstarch. . . it really is a life changer! It also has pineapple juice. . . so don't forget to pick up a can when you head to the store. I highly recommend adding a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce up, because it was runny side.
Baked Sesame Chicken
You might think we were on a chinese food kick, and you'd probably be right. But, really, I am feeling way more comfortable in my Oriental food making than I used to. It is so easy and equally yummy! This recipe, came on a night towards the end of the month, where I was almost out of anything worthwhile. We had chicken and rice and not a whole lot of anything. It was also carnival week, and there was absolutely NO time to go grocery shopping. My poor family suffered that week! But, I found this recipe and I had all the ingredients! That was a serious win! So, I baked these guys up right in the skillet I browned the chicken in (yes, I was lazy and yes, it's a cast iron skillet, so it can do both. . . you should buy one if you don't). My husband can't wait to have this one again!
Garlic Rosemary Pork Tenderloin
I had originally bought the pork tenderloin sitting in my freezer for a different meal. I will probably try that recipe a different day, but last month it was used for this. We really liked it, and it was super simple. I might even do the rub and slice it before freezing it and make a freezer meal with it. That way the flavors have more time to marinate and make it super easy for a weeknight meal!
