Grilled Chile-Lime Chicken
Made this chicken, but doubled the marinade recipe. Very good. The lime taste is refreshing. I was afraid it might be too spicy for my husband, but he liked it. Actually, I did not double the jalapeno, since I only had one, but it added a nice taste. We will make it again. served it with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

Italian Pepperoni-Vegetable Quiche
Made this last night for two of us. Had some left-overs, but not much. My husband loved it and I thought it was really good. There were two problems with it, though. First off I could not find the type of frozen vegetable called for. The recipe stated that this type of frozen veg. had a sauce with it. I bought a package of Tuscan type frozen veggies, since this seemed the closest, but it did not have a sauce. Still, for frozen veggies, it was pretty good. I ended up adding carrots to it, and microwaving them together with the other veggies. After this experience, I figure you could add fresh veggies of your choice, as long as they are partially cooked before adding to the crust.
Second, I bought the refrigerated crust as specified in the recipe. It was very easy to use, but did get soggy on the bottom. Really unappealing. Next time I make this recipe, I will either make a crust from scratch, or lightly bake the crust first (most likely!). Hopefully, this would solve the problem of the soggy bottom.
Also, since my husband is not a fan of pepperoni, I used Italian turkey sausage in it's place. Delicious!! I browned this first, let it cool slightly, then added as specified in recipe. This recipe is easy to make, with a lot of flavor. It is easy to change with different ingredients, and serves about 4 adults as a main course. I will definitely make this again.

Oven-Fried Chicken Tenders
A great recipe for chicken tenders. Very crispy with lots of flavor and super easy to make. Took longer to bake than recipe stated, but worth the wait. Served with coleslaw and baked potato wedges. First time I ever used packaged chicken tenders. They were a little more expensive that regular boneless chicken breasts, but worth the price if time is short. Thanks!!!
