Baked Apple Tarragon Chicken Recipe Cards


Early in June I developed a new recipe for baked chicken breasts using apple juice and tarragon that turned out so great it's become one my favorite dishes. I'm not a big apple juice drinker but now I always have at least a couple of sippy boxes of apple juice around for this dish (and the occasional Apple Martini!)

I finally got around to making the free recipe card design for it! Enjoy - it really is one of the best chicken recipes I've ever had!

Curried Coconut Catfish - Happy Accidents = Great Food

I had opened a can of coconut milk to make a martini and wanted to use it up before I forgot about it sitting in my fridge. I also had some catfish fillets I'd taken out of the freezer for dinner. Ordinarily the idea of fish and coconut milk wouldn't thrill me but I had also just bought a whole new jar of curry powder and it started me down the road to Thai flavors.

This recipe is the result and it was absolutely delicious when I finished. The fish was flaky, flavorful and moist and I loved the coconut and curry flavors with just that little bit of sweetness added. I didn't have any lemon grass but the lime brought in the citrus element and, frankly, wasn't as bossy as lemon grass can be!

This goes great with coconut rice, here's a simple recipe:

1 Cup Basmati or Jasmine Rice
1 Cup Coconut Milk
1-1/4 Cups Water
1/2 Tsp. Salt
Small Pat of Butter
Directions for coconut rice: Rinse your rice and drain. Bring all the ingredients to a boil, stir, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 10 minutes - check the cooking instructions on the rice package for appropriate cooking times. Fluff up before serving.
You can toss in some toasted coconut, some pineapple chunks, some crunchy pine-nuts, sliced green onions or anything else that complements your main dish!

Try it out with one of my coconut martinis from The Martini Diva - like the Pina Colada Martini or The Blue Hawaii Martini, or search for my other coconut martinis using the search bar on that sight. BTW, you can also search for recipes here using my search bar too.

Ham is a naturally pink food so it's perfect for Think Pink! This is a savory canape that is a mixture of cream cheese and green onions with some seasonings rolled up in Black Forrest ham - want to sweeten it up a bit? Take out the green onions and paprika and add pineapple and curry! Yum!

BANANA CHICKEN FRITTERS - It's Banana Week in PopArtDiva Land!

It's banana week in the land of PopArtDiva - I've already posted my Bananas Foster Martini, a tribute to the famous Brennan's of New Orleans Dessert - and here is my first banana tiny food. It's an appetizer that will have your guests jumping like monkeys for more!

I'm a fool for bananas and I love them right out of the peel, baked, sauteed, deep fried, covered in chocolate, flambeed and on top of cereal and ice cream. I can't eat corn flakes without them.

This recipe for Banana Chicken Fritters is a wonderful savory appetizer that reminds me a little of a Monte Cristo sandwich - only better because it has bananas. Don't tell anyone but I absolutely love Elvis' favorite sandwich, a grilled peanut butter and banana delight, and this recipe is sort of a savory take on that without the peanut butter! They're really good and half the time I'll eat more of them than I end up serving to guests!

Stop by Thursday for the Banana Bacon Rumaki - OMG - bananas and pork fat - you can't get any better than that!

Here's a little Lagniappe (that's a little somethin' extra in N'awlins speak) - a link to the authentic Bananas Foster recipe directly from Brennan's Website for their famous Bananas Foster. There's also some great history on that world famous restaurant and their famous dessert!

Bon Appetite and may your day be filled with Joie de Vivre!

RASPBERRY LEMON BUTTER - Flavored Butters

I got a bunch of fresh raspberries this week and was hunting for new recipes to use them in. This is a great recipe for Raspberry Lemon Butter which is a great condiment for fruit breads, muffins and bagels - in fact I used it on my raisin bagel this morning.

I'm also going to try it with roasting chicken and a few other little experiments! I'll let you know how they work out. In the meantime, enjoy this on whatever - oh, try it on pancakes too!

I'm also posting a Raspberry Lime Martini today over at The Martini Diva so click over and download that free recipe card too!
