14 Ways to Use Lemon Curd—Including Your New Favorite Chicken

Lemon curd dates back to at least the early 19th century in England, but it’s changed a whole lot since then. It started not as the velvety, creamy confection we know and adore today. Rather, it was cream curdled (get it?) with the addition of lemon juice, then separated from the whey through cheesecloth.

Nowadays fruit curds resemble jams much more than cheeses. Curds differ from custards (like pastry cream) in that they hinge on fruit juice versus dairy, which makes them more tart and zingy affairs, though they are just as smooth and silky.

This vodka sauce chicken parmesan is a fun spin on the classic! Crispy chicken, rich vodka sauce and melty mozzarella cheese. It’s so good!

When dinner has a blanket of cheese on it, you know it’s going to be delish.

We love absolutely everything about this chicken parmesan with vodka sauce. It is SO flavorful, so satisfying, one of our ultimate comforting dinners that everyone freaks over. Really! 

And can you blame us? Just look at it.

vodka sauce chicken parmesan

Chicken parm is easily one of Eddie’s favorite dishes. I love to surprise him with it! Since I grew up not loving tomato sauce, chicken parm was never a dish I cared about. I probably didn’t even truly eat it until my 20s. 

It’s also a dish that Max has always loved to help me make. He loves dredging the chicken in the flour, dipping it, cooking it, covering it with sauce and cheese – you name it. He asks to make it all the time and it’s so cute.

And why not make it with vodka sauce all the time?! Only the best sauce ever. So much better than marinara!

Now that I’ve shared my favorite vodka sauce pasta and my vodka sauce pizza recipe, I’ve got one more dish here for you that uses the fantastic sauce. 

I mean, you can have a week of vodka sauce meals! I wouldn’t complain.

This is how the deliciousness goes down:

The vodka sauce is decadent and creamy. I use a base of tomato pasta, shallots and garlic then bring it together with starchy pasta water and cream. Oh and parmesan. Of course!

P.S. I offer a great substitution below in the recipe if you aren’t making pasta – you don’t need the starchy water. 

Our favorite chicken cutlets are lightly breaded with the perfect amount of crisp. We love thin-sliced chicken breasts with just a spoonful of the sauce on top!

I tend to use seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan cheese because the flavor is incredible.

Then finish everything off with sliced fresh mozzarella that gets bubbly and melty in the oven.

Because the vodka sauce is so rich, I knew I wanted to do a lighter breading on the chicken. The flour + egg + breadcrumb combo just seemed too heavy for this, plus I knew it wouldn’t stay as crunchy either with the vodka sauce. 

So I used the method of butter + breadcrumbs here and we are obsessed. I love how the chicken turns out. You lightly brush the butter all over the chicken breast so the bread crumbs have something to adhere to. Then dip the chicken in the breadcrumbs and you’re good to go!

A quick pan-fry in the skillet to get the chicken crispy happens next. Then I top with some of the vodka sauce, some fresh mozzarella, and bake just until the chicken is cooked through. It’s juicy and tender and ridiculously flavorful. 

It’s so versatile too! Eat it with pasta, on a salad, in a wrap, with a side.  (more…)

Chicken soup risotto is on the menu tonight!

chicken soup risotto

Oh YES. We have a creamy, dreamy risotto that is loaded with chicken and vegetables, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and served with so much love. It’s the ultimate fall comfort food and I can’t wait for you to try it! 

chopped carrots and celery

I’m so excited to be partnering with ALDI again today to bring you this delicious chicken soup risotto! Right now, I’m all about the cozy flavors and comforting meals. ALDI is my go-to for high-quality and affordable ingredients and seasonal eats, which is fantastic because there is one right in my backyard.

We can always find everything we need at ALDI, from snacks for school, to dinner ingredients and seasonal treats. In fact, there are lots of things that we can only find at ALDI, some of our tried and true favorites like cheese, olive oil, organic chicken and produce. You just can’t beat the prices and the quality.

rice with carrots and celery

I always get SO excited in the fall to see all the seasonal eats that ALDI has released. Shopping there is so efficient and it’s so easy for me to find what I need. When it comes to a meal like this, I can grab all the ingredients I need quickly and have dinner on the table in a little over 30 minutes!

Today, it’s allll about the coziest bowl of risotto – that tastes just like chicken soup! I call it chicken soup risotto because it technically has all the flavor of soup… without the soup part. Instead of noodles, we have rice! And instead of it being a super brothy soup, we cook the rice in the stock until it’s creamy and rich and spoonable. 

Basically, it’s fantastic.

I’m also thrilled to tell you that you can make fabulous risotto with long grain white rice. 

Yes!! 

It works so well – is so easy – and super affordable. You can make a fancy risotto dish using the Earthly Grains Long Grain White Rice and it will be absolutely delicious. 

We want all the flavors of chicken soup here, so I start with the basics: onions, carrots and celery. I’m not the biggest fan of celery, but I never leave it out of my chicken soup. So we’re keeping it in here too. Those three ingredients are the building blocks of flavor for this risotto.

I’m also using the Simply Nature Organic Chicken Breasts. This is a great weeknight meal because you need cooked chicken, meaning you can use leftover chicken! Whether it’s grilled or roasted or seared, you need some shredded or cubed cooked chicken to make this whole thing come together.

Now the secret to really wonderful risotto is toasting the rice in butter. This adds an incredible depth of flavor – a nutty almost brown butter-ish taste that will make the dish shine. So you toast the rice with some onions and garlic, then throw in the celery and carrots.

Next, I warm up some Simply Nature Organic Chicken Broth. The key is to slowly stir the warm broth into the rice and vegetables, adding a few ladles at a time. 

Risotto has a reputation of being high maintenance, and well – that isn’t untrue. You do need to stir the stock into your risotto while it cooks to develop the creamy rice texture and rich flavor, so it takes a bit of hands-on time. But it’s totally worth it! 

Once the risotto is ready, I stir in the chicken and some parmesan cheese. This flavor is spot on, because I usually use a rind of parmesan cheese in my chicken soup! Spritz in a bit of lemon for brightness, toss in some parsley and it’s ready!  (more…)

tortilla chips with cheese and chipotle ranch

I love a good weekend easy dinner. Eddie and I would call this one of my cop-out dinners. Like I just don’t feel like throwing some huge together, and maybe we aren’t super hungry or we would rather have a snacky dinner. So I make sheet pan nachos. 

But they aren’t on a sheet pan.

They’re on the grill! 

Why haven’t I been grilling nachos my entire life? Someone please tell me. Throw some chips on a pan, cover in cheese, then top with allllll the favorite things.

Also, ideal for game day!

quick guacamole

This isn’t necessarily a RECIPE per se. I’m sure you’ve figured that out by now. It’s more so a method, and I guess the chipotle ranch is the real recipe because it’s fantastic and a staple in my fridge.

Oh and the chicken!! I have to tell you about the chicken. 

P.S. doesn’t the nacho picture above give you a major microwaved-nachos vibe or what? Not that these are microwaved, but oh my gosh tortilla chips and cheese, microwaved, was my love language growing up,

Not going to lie, sometimes I’ll still do it. Maybe like once a year, when I’m desperate. It definitely tastes like 1995. 

melty cheddar chip nacho

Okay so the major secret to this smoky chicken is how I flavor it. It’s TOTALLY a cheater’s version of smoky chicken, but I’ve been doing it for years. 

I’ve made it this way for sheet pan nachos forever now and everyone always flips over how delicious it is. It could NOT be easier.

First, all you need is a rotisserie chicken! That’s it. No big deal. Keep it simple. 

Then, toss that with some smoky spices (paprika! cumin!) as well as a drop of liquid smoke. I find the liquid smoke in the spice aisle of my local grocery store and have it on hand at all times. If you want to make chicken or pork in the slow cooker, it’s also GREAT to use in there. Just remember that a drop or two is enough!

So see? Total cheater’s version. It’s not real smoked chicken, even though we do have a smoker and love it. But this is the insanely easy way out. Try it!  (more…)

BAKED CURRY CHICKEN

This combines my favorite curry spice blend and chicken. Roasting chicken with onions is such a juicy way to cook it. Also, you’ll have gravy ready to go right away. Rings of fresh chili peppers and green onions add just the right amount of freshness and extra spice to the dish. If you don’t want it spicy, remove the chili peppers. Serve with basmati rice or sticky round rice. Baked or mashed potatoes also work fine. Great with beer.

Any chicken will work for this recipe. You can take any young chicken. Cornish Game Hen or Poussin chicken (sometimes called coquelet or spring chicken) And of course you can cook regular chicken using this recipe. Just cut it into 4 pieces.

Baked Curry Chicken

Curry baked chicken with onion in oven

Recipe

PREP TIME COOK TIME MAKES
5-7 minutes 50-60 minutes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS (serves 2-3)

  • 1 small chicken (~800 g, 1 lb 12 oz)
  • 1 small onion
  • 40 g ( 1½ oz) ginger
  • 2 tsp curry spice mix
  • ⅔ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil

To serve:

  • 1 fresh chili
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onions

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.
  2. Dice the onion. Do not peel the ginger, grate it on a fine grater.
  3. Mix the onion, ginger, oil, salt, and spices.

4. Cut the chicken lengthwise into 2 pieces. You need to cut the breast first, then the back on one side of the backbone. Place the chicken in a baking dish and brush both sides with the onion and spice mixture. Place it skin down.

Curry Baked  Chicken

5. Put the chicken in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Turn it over and baste every 15 minutes. Each time the gravy starts to dry out, add 2 tbsp water to the pan.

6. After 30 minutes, increase the temperature to 220°C/425°F and bake for another 20-25 minutes, still turning and basting the chicken. Bake the chicken skin-side up for the last 10-15 minutes of cooking.

If your chicken is larger, cook for 7 minutes for every additional 100 grams (3 ½ oz) of chicken weight (for oven roasting uncovered, in a 190°C/375°F). Also, if you are taking a large chicken, increase the temperature to only 200°C/390°F. The golden crust will have time to cook.
