Once those temperatures drop and the chilly (and sometimes snowy) winter weather kicks in, it’s the perfect season for some cozy recipes that leave you feeling oh-so-toasty inside. While many reach for the typical winter comfort foods like chili, soup and stew, I’m happy to tell you that PCHSearch&Win can help broaden your cooking horizons with some fantastic winter meal ideas that will leave you feeling warm, full and satisfied!
So PCH fans, what prompted my search for a new cozy recipe? Well, after a long day of work with some super chilly temperatures all I wanted was a warm dinner and a cozy blanket! I could have easily turned to the tried-and-true winter foods that I have always loved but this time I was in the mood for something different. I immediately headed to PCHSearch&Win and searched for “cozy recipes for winter.” I think I hit the jackpot because I got a ton of results with step-by-step instructions, photos and more. Now the hard part was going to be deciding on which recipe to make!
After searching through a few of the recipes I was most interested in (as my stomach was growling!) I finally decided on “Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Red Potatoes and Sautéed Green Beans.” Now you might think that this sounds challenging to make, but the prep took about 15-20 minutes and the cook time was about a half-hour.
My first step was to wash, cut and season the potatoes. The recipe called for olive oil, some oregano, basil, parsley, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and regular salt and pepper. I mixed the potato wedges into the seasoning and put them on a coated cookie sheet into the oven. Next step was to prepare the chicken and the balsamic glaze. I cooked the chicken in a skillet until it was almost fully cooked, then threw in the ingredients to make the balsamic glaze. As I let that cook it was time to start my green beans in another skillet, all while the potatoes were baking in the oven. It was a pretty simple multitasking meal if you ask me!
Once everything was fully cooked it was finally time to eat. I threw a little parsley on the plate for added taste and scooped up a little of each item. The warm feeling of oven roasted potatoes and the hearty chicken was the perfect choice to make me feel cozy. I even had enough leftovers for lunch the next day.
