Take a piece of foil, put a little salsa on the bottom, put the chicken on top and top with more salsa. Close the packet up and bake until done.

I marinate chicken with fresh lime juice, garlic and olive oil, then grill it. You can eat it like that or cut it up and put it into tacos.

That leftover garlic lime chicken can make a white bean chili.

Pork carnitas. I put a pork tenderloin in the crock pot, squeeze an orange and a lime, add 5 whole cloves of garlic, some chicken broth, cumin and salt and let it cook all day. You can make tacos with that meat, enchiladas, or the white bean chili as well.

Spaghetti with whole wheat pasta

Turkey burgers. Made these the other night. I sautéed up a poblano, onion and garlic. Added that to the turkey with some salt and pepper. Put that on a whole grain bun. It was quite good. I served it sweet potato fries.

Just tried this one yesterday. I put 1.5 C applesauce, 1 T apple cider vinegar, 1 T dried onion flake, 1/4 t cinnamon and 2 cloves of garlic over 4 chicken breasts and cooked in the slow cooker. Served over orzo. That was a hit.

Just a few ideas...

My challenge this weekend is to make a meal completely from local food products. Thankfully, today is farmer's market, so I'll head on over to see what I can purchase fresh...and then whip up a great meal.

Should be interesting.
