Mediterranean Chicken

With Artichokes Insalata On Rice

Often times I adapt recipes to suit my teens tastes. I knew this might be a recipe she may really enjoy as long as it didn’t have the tomatoes added. I left the dishes separate and plated each one to suit my families likes. 

This recipe isn’t complicated at all but, does take four different steps, and done in under an hour.

When rice is done assemble it onto your plates. Top with organic lemon fruit spread, we used Rigoni di Asiago *which we did receive for free. It gives your chicken that sweet, lemony zing and compliments this dish so well. Then garnish with a thin cut lemon wedge.

After Italian dinners there is usually sitting at the table talking. Wine, cheeses, fruit and then coffee. When thinking of other ways to use Rigoni di Asiago I thought it would be good to accompany fruit trays. Or to use on toast in the mornings. You’ll find recipes on their site too.

It’s raw and creamy, and so, so good. There are several choices of organic honey; wildflower, lime and mandarin. I am using the lime honey in a dressing for a vegetarian taco salad recipe coming soon.
