Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken - FFWD

Another super easy and great FFWD recipe! No discernible cinnamon and no crunch but lots of flavor. This is basically  sauteed chicken in a sauce made of creme fraiche (I used half creme fraiche and half cream - more budget friendly when doubling the recipe!) and chopped spice cookies. It was reminiscent of a strogonoff or Swedish Meatball sauce. It tasted nicely complex and mysterious even though it was so easy. We served it with a version of the rice recipe from last week: Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice with Spinach...I added sauteed bell peppers. Very good!

I am making the chicken again tonight. I love how easy it is. Also this week, we made the Dressy Pasta "Risotto" from Around My French Table with the addition of some chopped cooked broccoli. Again...easy & to die for!

Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice with Spinach - FFWD

 I missed last week's FFWD because we had no power, thanks to Hurricane Irene. This week's recipe made up for it - it was sooo good! And so easy, too. We loved it so much that I am making it again tonight. I have a lot of smallish bell peppers from our garden so instead of stuffing the rice into peppers, this time I am going to sauté the peppers along with the onions and garlic and add all that to the rice and cheese. Cannot wait!
