spicychickenI think this is the first recipe I’m posting in 2010, which is interesting because this is a dish I started making years ago when we lived in Hoboken. In fact, according to the printout of the recipe I’ve been making it since February 6th, 2005.

Adam loves this, so I’m not sure why I hardly ever make it anymore. It’s really easy, but I guess I have so many other recipes competing for space. It’s adapted from the Spicy Shrimp and Spaghetti Aglio Olio recipe by Rachael Ray. It’s equally good with the original shrimp. I have no idea why I started making it with farfalle instead of spaghetti, but now that’s the only way it gets made.

This year we’re also trying to pay attention to the calories that are in everything, so we’re trying to keep food logs. A serving of this dish (and when I make it there are about 3 big bowls) is apprx. 650 calories. Not bad for dinner.

finished pork tenderloinThis is my variation on a recipe I first found in Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats. I’ve moved on to different cookbooks now, but still I’ve been making this for years, one of my fastest and tastiest go-to dinners, and over time I’ve tweaked it into my own thing. Her recipe cooks 25 degrees hotter than mine, she uses coriander, garlic, more lime juice. Her recipe doesn’t add onions and peppers. So I’ve posted my variation. I serve it with yellow rice and sour cream, and it’s awesome.
