Roasted Red Pepper-Stuffed Chicken

Recap: Try Something New Tuesday 148

Hey hey!

How are you doing today? First of all, thank you guys SO much for all of your comments on the juicing videos I posted on Monday! Hearing and watching myself recorded still feels pretty awkward (hence I haven’t watched the videos more than 3 times) but I’m glad to hear many of you enjoyed them!

Alright, it’s recipe time!

1. Recipe of the Week. While taking inventory of the chicken dishes I’ve posted to date on Eat Spin Run Repeat, it occurred to me that I haven’t posted many recently and those that were published ages ago aren’t the most visually appealing. Voila – instant inspiration for this week’s featured recipe. I’ve turned into much more of a seafood eater than a chicken fan over the years. This is primarily because chicken costs more, and then there’s that nasty hormone crap that gets pumped into them that I’m not so on board with. However, I’ve realized that organic, free-range chicken really does taste a bazillion times better than the non-organic, cooped up kind (pardon the pun), so for this recipe I splurged and bought my chicken from The Healthy Butcher.

You’ll be pleased to know that this one is super simple, requires very few ingredients, and can be on the table in just over 30 minutes. It also features one of my favourite and convenient foods, jarred roasted red peppers.

Feel free to roast them yourself if you like, or just buy a jar like I do and save yourself the time. Simply blend up the peppers, tomato paste, basil and garlic, and stuff it inside the chicken breasts.

Pop them in the oven, and 25 minutes later…

2. Pom Tango from David’s Tea. To say I was excited when this little email rolled into my inbox last week would have been an understatement:

David's Tea Spring Collection

Weak at the knees, warm fuzzy feelings inside, nose ready to sniff teas to your heart’s content and hands moving together to clutch an imaginary mug. If you’re a David’s Tea addict too, you may have exhibited similar symptoms. I know I sure did.

The Spring Collection is full of all sorts of tropical twists and fruity notes, and I had a lot of trouble making a decision when I rolled into the store yesterday to pick out my new teas. Honeydew Mate was on sample, and despite its great smell, the taste was a bit underwhelming. Torn between the Pom Tango black tea (mango cubes, pomegranate seeds, black tea) and Cobabanana (apple, cinnamon, banana, coconut, cocoa, orange peel, vanilla), I opted for the Pom Tango.

(Don’t worry, I bought the Copabanana too. It’ll be my morning tea at work today!)

Pom Tango smelled amazing and super fruity. Since our weather has been feeling springy over the last couple of days (FINALLY!), I made this my first iced tea of the year. The flavour was really pleasant – not as strong as the smell of the loose tea had me anticipating, but still a tasty choice and a repeater for sure. I’ve currently got a big pitcher steeping away in my fridge!

So tell me…

  • Have you tried any of the spring collection yet? What are your favourites?
  • Tea or coffee: Which camp are you in?

      Ooh have a nice tea date with your dad, Cathy! If he’s into more traditional teas, they have an organic breakfast tea and an earl gray. But… if you’re feeling adventurous, I had the Copabanana earlier today and it is AMAZING! I like it even more than Pom Tango.

      I agree – let’s hope this snow goes away ASAP – we’ve got running to do! :)

    I gave up coffee In January for a cleanse. I never thought I would stick with it, but so far I have for the most part. I drink Yerba Mate in the mornings now, then green tea, then switch to herbal in the afternoon. Sometime I drink Pero too, if I’m having a coffee craving that helps sometimes.

    I don’t know about David’s tea, it sounds like a magical place.

    I’m usually more of a coffee person, but sometimes a great tea will really get me. (For example Good Earth’s Vanilla Chai and Teavana’s My Morning Matte.) David’s tea sounds amazing!

    That chicken recipe looks delicious!

    And definitely coffee. I do like a good tea at night (love Yogi ‘bedtime’ tea) but I will never be able to lose the coffee habit :)
