Monday Motivational Meal—The Perfect Poached Chicken

Monday, March 8, 2021

 

The Perfect Poached Chicken Served Up on Livliga's Aveq Dinner Plate


Poached chicken can be a delicacy for dinner right after it has been cooked. The next day more of the same meat can be cut up in chunks and used in a Cobb salad. Additional dishes can be made where it can be included in omelets, chicken salad nestled in a half of a cantaloupe or used in an Asian wrap. The uses for poached chicken are not only versatile but also almost infinite. Our succulent poached chicken was served up on our Aveq dinnerware plate.

Monday Motivational Meal—Turkey Veggie Meatballs

Monday, March 1, 2021

Cooking Light Turkey Veggie Meatballs

 

We have many family favorite recipes we have discovered and claimed over the years. One such recipe from Cooking Light includes a homemade Marinara Sauce and the delicious Turkey-Veggie Meatballs to go with it. I haven’t found a kid yet who doesn’t love a meatball. The wonderful thing about the Turkey-Veggie Meatballs is that they are packed full of delicious veggies yet are so tasty no one, including kids, realizes how healthy they are for you. I also like the fact that they are not greasy like classic meatballs with beef can be. Make your own sauce or use your preferred store bought…whatever works! We served this delectable meal up on Vivente.
