Balsamic Chicken with Baby Potatoes and Mushrooms

I love a good sheet pan recipe. Baking all things at once and in a single pan is a win, win for me. I tailored amounts to suit my family, no one is a mushroom lover but I put a few in for flavor. I couldn’t find chicken quarters at my market so I just used thighs. Small Yukon gold potatoes and an onion rounded out the ingredients. This meal cooked up in 40 minutes, I served it with a salad and it became a nice Sunday night meal. We all enjoyed this one.

Gingered-Turkey Meatball Soup

After I made pasta with cabbage, winter squash and walnuts I had some leftover ingredients. Thumbing through the list of completed recipes I found gingered-turkey meatball soup, cabbage was listed as one of the ingredients. Bingo, my next make-up recipe. I also substituted linguine as my pasta since the store I shopped at did not have rice noodles. I poached my meatballs in broth because I wanted more flavor in my broth. One of the complaints I read about this recipe was too much broth but poaching the meatballs much of the broth boiled down. I actually barely had enough broth. My husband liked this the best. He is really enjoying the infusion of new recipes at the dinner table. My son was not a fan but I think it is just his teenage brain and I should stop asking his opinion. I have a go to recipe, spring minestrone with chicken meatballs, and I don’t think this recipe is going to replace that.
