Tonight I did my version of Chicken Sorrento, which is a nice blend of winter comfort food casserole and diabetic-friendly.

      Felix,
      Would you share your Chicken Sorrento recipe? That looks wonderful, and since it's diabetic-friendly, I would like to try it. Most recipes that I googled have too many carbs for me.
      Thanks,
      Bill

        It hasn't been approved and made public on the site I use yet so I can't post a link, but this is it. It's a bit higher in carbs than I'm supposed to make for her, but I can get away with it every now and then, especially if I keep the meals on the surrounding days down.
         
        Chicken Sorrento

        6 cups water
        1/4 teaspoon salt
        1 1/2 cups whole wheat penne (uncooked) (I often use Dreamfield's pasta instead because I like the texture better)
        6 tablespoons whole wheat flour
        3/4 teaspoon salt
        1/2 teaspoon black pepper
        2 teaspoons dried parsley
        6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
        1/4 cup vegetable shortening
        4 ounces mushrooms (canned, drained)
        1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup
        1 teaspoon dried oregano
        1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
        16 ounces low-fat sour cream
        1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
        1 teaspoon paprika
         
        Step 1
        Preheat oven to 350F; spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
        Step 2
        Bring water with 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil over high heat; add pasta, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, 12 minutes or until tender.
        Step 3
        Combine flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and parsley in a large zip-top plastic bag; add chicken and shake well to coat.
        Step 4
        Melt shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken pieces and brown 8 minutes per side.
        Step 5
        Drain pasta and set aside (I usually thaw the peas in a colander, then just dump the pasta over top to drain).
        Step 6
        Remove chicken from skillet to a plate; cover and keep warm.
        Step 7
        Add mushrooms, soup, oregano and garlic powder to skillet, scraping up the browned bits to combine; cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes.
        Step 8
        Remove from heat and add sour cream, stirring to completely combine.
        Step 9
        Combine peas, pasta, and half of sour cream mixture and spread in bottom of prepared baking dish.
        Step 10
        Lay chicken pieces over pasta; spread remaining sauce over chicken pieces.
        Step 11
        Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 40 minutes; remove foil, sprinkle with paprika and bake an additional 20 minutes.

          Tonight I just went easy. I stopped at one of my favorite markets, Antojitos Mexican Market. I got a carne asada burrito for dinner. I combined it with some Frijoles Negros I had and topped the beans with Queso Cotilja and fresh scallions from the market. Dessert was a fresh honey tangerine from the market. 

           

           

           
          Yes, that is a nice glass of Cazadores Tequila to go with the dinner.
           
          I also bought fresh chili peppers, bell peppers and chili powders for tomorrow night's dinner----Bison Chili. Stay tuned!
              FYI---the carne asada burrito was $2.99!!!!!

              Not since a few weeks ago. I did a private pre-event tasting for an event I'm participating in. I sampled Herradura, three types. One was aged in a sherry cask and one aged in an oak barrel. They were amazing!

                      Thanks, Felix. I will give that a shot. The carb count is within my allowance.

                          It's a tasting dinner. A different tequila matched with each course. I just did the same with MacCallan Scotch a few weeks ago. Fun-----and good stuff!

                            Well, tonight was chili night. Last night I bought my ingredients from Antojitos Latino Market. 

                             
                            I also bought a package of New Mexico Chile Powder and a package of Chie de Arbol Powder, plus a container of fresh grated Queso Cotilja cheese. Everything went into the pot to make a nice "pot of red".
                             

                             
                            An hour and a half of simmering and it was ready. I had it with a side of frijoles negros and some homemade spinach and cheese tamales (not made by me, but made by a friend's mother).

                             
                            The chili, topped with fresh grated Queso Cotilja cheese, was delicious.

                                  Thank you, Michael. I would have never thought to cook it outside. Although the neighbors did give me funny looks when the horses that pulled the chuck wagon started munching their lawns.

                                    Yes, I can understand that happening. I suppose chuck wagons there are normally pulled by alpacas. Speaking of alpacas, remind me to show you some of my golf sweaters.

                                      Nice day outside so I fired up the grill. New York steak, Himalayan Red Rice and Brussels Sprouts with Bacon cooked in foil on the grill.

                                            Those look like yummy pork chops, Lisa!
                                            Bill, yeah, I've gotten the hang of cooking for one. As you see, I'm not exactly starving!

                                              I have not been in a cooking mood. 
                                              So, I had a KFC chicken pot pie for dinner.  Fast food but quite satisfying.
