Plate with chicken marsala and noodles.

Chicken Marsala

This dish is a guilty pleasure for me. I can’t say why exactly, it’s not as if it’s difficult to find in a restaurant. In fact, Chicken Marsala even shows up fairly often in non-Italian restaurants.

It could be because even though it might taste complicated and expensive, made well with good ingredients it’s actually a very simple affordable dish.

I know some of you will say, I’ve had it and it wasn’t great. Me too. But I’ve had it many times when it was great and I’m never going back.

So let’s do this.

Time to make supper and a chicken breast sliced thin and quickly sautéed with a lemon and parsley sauce sounds like the perfect entrée tonight. Once again, proof that simple food can taste amazing. This dish falls under my pantry simple recipes.

Chicken breasts should thaw in the refrigerator overnight. We all know that. But what if I didn’t plan ahead? (‘Cause that never happens….)

No problem.

A bowl of egg, lemon, and chicken soup.

Egg, Lemon, and Chicken Soup

My wife regularly gets after me to make this soup. Most people know it as the Greek dish Avgolemono but there are versions of it all over the Mediterranean and Middle East.

Like grilled cheese and apple pie, the name of the dish pretty well describes it. It’s based on a simple sauce of eggs and lemon juice (great by itself over meat or vegetables) which is then added to a simple chicken soup.

No more, no less, but super easy and pantry simple. Singing my song.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Of all the soups I routinely make, chicken noodle soup happens most often.

Very often it is a spur-of-the-moment thing, usually the day after a roasted chicken dinner or when someone in the house isn’t feeling well. I believe strongly in the healing power of this soup.

You will only need this recipe one time – then you’ll know how to make it without thinking.
