This is my all time favorite chicken recipe that has it all. It’s like a whole meal tucked into a juicy chicken thigh. 
The filling is mixed with Cinnamon, dried fruits, and pine nuts. The chicken is brushed with a sweet and tangy sauce with herbs, honey, and lemon. The whole dish is baked in the oven, low and slow, until juicy, sweet, savory, tangy, and tender perfection. 


Now, stop drooling on your keyboard and check out the recipe below!!!

Recipe Round-up – Great Tasting Leftover Holiday ‪Ham‬ ‪Recipes

Welcome back, everyone.  I hope you had a joyous and blessed Easter with a chance to reconnect with friends and family. Holidays truly bring out the warmth and love in people with an open generosity of spirit.  And for us Foodies, we have the added benefit of being able to load up our holiday tables with our favorite recipes!

I am the one who usually does most of the meal preparation during holidays, but this year I fell ill with a bad cold.  The kind that went right to my chest. Yuk!  Needless to say, I wasn’t up to spending hours in the kitchen, to say nothing of spreading a bunch of germs.  Thankfully, my dear sweet daughter came to my rescue and pulled together a delightful and tasty meal.

Not being one to enjoy being idle, or sick for that matter, I decided to take the time and scour the world wide web looking for some great leftover recipe ideas for using up our holiday ham.  For those of you who also made ham, I think you will be inspired by the recipes I am sharing with you below.  I know they certainly gave me a ton of ideas and I can’t wait to give them a taste.

Here are some of my favorites:
