Friday Faves: New Recipe Favorites

Here's the final round-up of my new recipe "keepers." Last week I shared my new favorite fish recipes, and before that I shared my new favorite salad recipes.  Today I am sharing a bunch of others, including some for chicken, beef, and even a meatless recipe.  Don't forget to follow Everyday Fabulous on Facebook for your nightly recipe inspiration with my #DinnerTonight posts.

This was soooo good.  As we are controlling our portion sizes, we did not toss this with the pasta, and instead measured out 1/2 cup of the angel hair apiece, then topped with lots of the other yummy ingredients.

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, undrained
  • 1 (6 ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into quarters
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced olives, drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (12 ounce) package angel hair pasta
  • 1 (8 ounce) package crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 pound raw chicken tenders or strips
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) package spaghetti
