Chicken and Mushroom Empanada
The empanadas can be made ahead of time and chilled until ready to bake. For less heat, seed the jalapeño peppers after roasting.
Have a filling you want to make but need an empanada dough recipe? This Whole-Wheat Empanada Dough is light and flaky and can be baked rather than fried. Wine in the recipe adds yeast flavor and aids in flakiness; its acidity also breaks down the gluten, allowing you to stretch the dough easily when forming the empanadas.

Mu Shu Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Four Citrus-Herb Chicken
Citrus zest perfumes the chicken while it marinates. A fresh salsa of citrus segments and herbs doubles down on fruit flavor. The natural sugar from the citrus in the marinade creates a caramelized glaze on the roasted chicken while the serrano chiles add a layer of heat. Buying a whole chicken that still has the skin on and bones-ins will add a depth of flavor that skinless and boneless chicken breasts lack. Even though the chicken will be roasted in the oven, the citrus and herbs keep this dish very light and fresh. Pair with a fresh orzo or quinoa salad to let this zesty, roasted chicken shine as the main dish.
Craving salty and crunchy chicken fingers? You can have them for dinner but this time they are covered in hazelnuts, crispy panko, with half the calories and so much more flavor. This oven-fried chicken recipe delivers full flavors of Dijon mustard, hazelnuts, sage, and red wine, and is ready in less than 40 minutes. If you don’t have ruby port, you can substitute it with a sweet red cooking wine such as dry sherry or Marsala wine. This is a weeknight chicken meal the whole family will enjoy with the crunchy, oven fried chicken and elevated port sauce - ketchup or a homemade ranch would pair well if children do not like the port sauce. Serve with roasted butternut squash as a side to complete the meal.
