Fiance and I are doing our own little Christmas tonight, and I was thinking we could make a nice dinner together. Anyone have any ideas…something not too hard but yummy and out of the ordinary? 🙂 I’m hungry already and it’s only 10;30…

It’s not too hard, especially if you buy the chicken already cut up. SO good.

What about a filet roast? you tie it up, wrap it in bacon, and pop it in the oven? Make a horseradish cream sauce or bernaise for it, some veggies, and some baked potatos!

@sloth: I am printing that recipe.
@cherrycoke: I have another suggestion: Chicken Marsala. Hubby and I made that with honeybutter drizzled croissants, and garlic broccoli on our One Year Anniversray when we were dating.

What kind of foods are ordinary for you?
I just made this really yummy quinoa dish. Cooki Quinoa in chicken broth then mix with one orange segmented and then diced, then squeeze the juice out of the remaining orange. Zest 1/2 the rind. Roast asparagus with olive oil and cut into 1/4s.
Mix asparagus, zest, orange pieces, orange juice, quinoa, salt and pepper to taste and finish with a drizzle of olive oil– sooooo good.
And maybe do a new york strip. Pat dry and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and cook in a very hot pan to your desired doneness. Take off and let sit. In same pan add sliced mushrooms and red wine or sherry. Cook and top the steak.
Get some dates, cut in half and stuff with goat cheese.

What about goat cheese, basil, and scallion stuffed chicken breasts? You literally just stuff them and then bake in the oven for like 20 mins.

What about cornish game hens? They take less time than other birds and are festive and different. Something like this: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Stuffed-Cornish-Hens/Detail.aspx
