I’ve taken to watching The Barefoot Contessa episodes on Saturday mornings and finding great recipes and menus to make for the rest of the week. If you haven’t seen Ina Garten’s show you must go to the TV right now, find the Food Network and Tivo the show or just sit there and wait until it comes on…it’s that good. In fact, I’m pretty sure I might want to be Ina when I grow up… that fabulous Hamptons house, endless festive get togethers with friends, the enviable garden brimming with flowers and the most amazing parsley and basil you’ve ever seen, her adorable, loving husband Jeffery and the food….oh the food! I promise, after watching just one episode you’ll feel at the same time relaxed and completely inspired!
This tequila lime chicken recipe is now one of my all times favorites. Everyone knows chicken is a great lean protein choice when you want a healthy dinner, but let’s be honest, it can be a little boring. That’s why I can’t get enough of this recipe! It’s a zesty marinade of fresh orange and lime juice, garlic and tequila with a kick from chile power and jalapeno pepper. Oh it’s so delicious and it makes chicken an enticing and best of all HEALTHY dinner choice. I love serving it with Ina’s french potato salad and some blasted garlic broccoli. You just have to try it!
