Besides dessert what can I make to incorporate fall spices into my dish? I had apples leftover from apple picking and wanted to use them since I plan on apple picking again LOL . Why not make an apple cinnamon sauce to serve over grilled chicken and use the leftovers for dessert?! Perfect! It was a nice sweet dish that had FALL written all over it. This was definitely a hit in my home and this apple cinnamon sauce will be a go to this fall season.
I decided to make a part II on What to Do and Make with Leftovers. There are so many ways to incorporate your leftovers instead of tossing them in the trash! Of course, if you are not planning on using them right away then make sure to freeze them! Don't you love going to restaurants where there is a salad bar with a ton on roasted vegetables to add to your salad? I love that! I have thought of doing that on many occasions. Preparing a bunch of vegetables to add to my salads. Using my leftovers gives me the same results without having to make extras for salads!
Chicken can become boring especially when you have it most days of the week. Chicken is versatile and you can serve it in so many ways. One of my go to meals is corn salsa served over grilled chicken thighs. It is simple and super tasty. If you read my blogs you may have noticed a pattern here. EASY and SIMPLE meals with TONS of flavor. That's my motto.
I made a cilantro sauce marinated in chicken and mixed the sauce into a corn orzo salad. Cilantro by far is my favorite herb. I use it on just about every dish. If a dish calls for basil or parsley I end up using cilantro. Why? Because I always have it stocked. I can't live without it. Three things I always have in my kitchen is cilantro, lemons or limes and fresh parmesan cheese. Must haves, to make any dish!
