I need a recipe, please!

I am not the cook of the family, but every now and then I like to cook for my husband. I am looking for any kind of recipe (one highly recommended) to surprise him for dinner some night. He is allergic to mushrooms, and I don't care for seafood. Almost anything else will work! Thanks for any help!

  • I cook every night just about. I love to cook. Do you like spaghetti? Chili? Is it cold enough where you live for chicken and noodles or chicken and dumplings? Tell me what you would like and I'll tell you how to make it easily enough and your hubby will be SO PROUD!

  • .

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a 3-quart baking dish combine strawberries, vinegar, and jam. Sprinkle salt and pepper; set aside.

    2. Cut a horizontal pocket in each chicken breast half by cutting from one side almost, but not through, to the other side. Cut Parmesan cheese in six 3x1/2-inch pieces. Wrap a basil leaf around each piece of cheese; stuff into chicken breast pocket. Secure pockets closed with wooden toothpicks or skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    3. In 12-inch oven-safe skillet cook garlic in oil over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to oven. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes. Add baking dish with the strawberry-jam mixture to oven. Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F) and the berries are softened and jam mixture has thickened. Serve chicken with melted strawberries. Sprinkle with basil.
