Excerpt

Mandarin Spinach Salad with Sesame-Garlic Topping

Serves 4

This Asian-inspired salad uses seasoned cereal to provide a new twist to croutons.

SESAME-GARLIC TOPPING
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup rice squares cereal

DRESSING
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon light soy sauce

SALAD
6 cups torn fresh spinach leaves
11-ounce can mandarin oranges in light syrup, drained
8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, drained

In a large skillet, combine topping ingredients except cereal, stirring well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Add cereal and stir until coated. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Drain on paper towels; let cool.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients.

For salad, place one layer each of spinach, oranges, and water chestnuts in a large salad bowl. Pour dressing over salad and toss well.

Add cereal croutons and toss again. Serve immediately.


Lemon-Herb Roast Chicken

Serves 6

Try this juicy, delicately flavored roast chicken for a Sunday dinner treat.

Vegetable oil spray
11/2 teaspoons dried thyme, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4- to 41/2-pound roasting chicken

2 medium cloves garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1 bay leaf
1/2 medium onion
1/2 cup dry white wine (regular or nonalcoholic)
Vegetable oil spray

Preheat oven to 350         F. Spray roasting pan and rack with vegetable oil spray.

Combine thyme, basil, pepper, and salt.

Remove giblets and neck from chicken and save for other use or discard. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Rub outside of chicken with herb mixture. Put chicken breast side up on rack in roasting pan.

Put garlic, lemon, bay leaf, and onion in chicken, then pour in wine.

Lightly spray outside of chicken with vegetable oil spray.

Roast for about 20 minutes per pound, or until juices run clear when you pierce a thigh with a sharp skewer or a meat thermometer registers 180         F when you insert it in thigh. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before carving. Remove skin before serving chicken.

Cook's Tip on Chicken Yields
A 4-pound chicken, cooked, yields about the following:
Breast meat: 12 oz        Wing meat: 1H oz
Leg meat: 4 oz                    Back meat: 2 oz
Thigh meat: 6 oz        Total: 25H oz

Time-Saver: Make a double recipe and have extra chicken to use during the week in other recipes, such as Chicken and Broccoli in Mushroom Sauce (see page 210).

1/4 cup low-sodium ketchup

MARINADE
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (1 medium)
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary or 1 tablespoon dried, crushed
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or 2 teaspoons dried, crumbled
3 medium cloves garlic, minced, or 11/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic

1 medium red onion, cut into

24 cherry tomatoes

In an airtight plastic bag, combine marinade ingredients. Add lamb and turn to coat. Seal and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
