Tangy feta and juicy tomatoes roast together in the oven, creating a creamy sauce that clings to ruffly campanelle or corkscrew-shaped cavatappi pasta in this easy bake sheet pan dinner. The whole dish comes together in under an hour as the chicken, cheese, and aromatics bake in the oven while the pasta and kale quickly cook on the stove. Serve hot, room temperature, or as a chilled pasta salad.
White Chicken Chili
Rating: Unrated
This creamy, spicy, and boldly-flavored White Chicken Chili cooks in one pot in under an hour. It gets its luscious texture from creamy navy beans and chopped corn tortillas, which thicken the broth and give it a long-cooked flavor. A lightly piquant combination of fresh jalapeños, diced green chiles, ground cayenne, and chili powder lend heat without overpowering the chili, while fresh and cooling cilantro, stirred in at the last minute, balances each bowl.
Naturally gluten-free, cornmeal is the classic (and perfect) coating for tart fried green tomatoes. Be mindful when shopping for cornmeal; many brands are actually cornmeal mixes, which include flour and leavening agents. Keep your eye out for stone-ground cornmeal for the best texture; Bob's Red Mill is one of our go-to brands.
In the market for perfectly tender and juicy chicken thighs with golden crispy skin and loads of roasted lemon and garlic flavor, all totally achievable on a weeknight? Then this is your recipe. As a bonus, you'll blend the pan drippings into a velvety and deeply savory sauce that tastes terrific alongside mashed or roasted potatoes. You can even assemble the dish a day in advance and store it in the fridge, ready to bake for an hour as you prep any side dishes.
