    1. Preheat the oven to 350F
    2. Place a long piece of parchment paper in front of you and fold it in half like a book.
    3. Unfold and pour about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce onto the parchment paper. Place the chicken breasts on top and coat them in the sauce.
    4. Fold the parchment paper over, and starting at one end of the parchment, fold the edges of the paper over several times continuing to make creases all around the chicken until it’s completely enclosed, and no air can escape.
    5. Place the parchment packet on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.

    Winter Farmers Market Salad

    • 4 cups arugula
    • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
    • 1/2 cup candied walnuts
    • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

    Directions:

    1. Place all ingredients in a large salad bowl and toss to combine.

    Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner

    Ingredients:

    • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
    • 1 large fennel bulb, sliced lengthwise into steaks
    • 1 zucchini, cut into coins
    •  olive oil
    • 2 lemons, halved
    • 1 1/2 pounds salmon filet, whole or cut into filets
    •  kosher salt, to taste

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. Place the first 5 ingredients on a sheet pan and toss with olive oil to coat and salt to taste. Distribute the vegetables around the pan in a single layer and bake for 10 minutes.
    3. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and push some of the vegetables to the side to make space for the salmon fillets. Season the salmon with salt and bake for 12-15 additional minutes (depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets).
    4. Turn the broiler on for 2 minutes or until the vegetables are golden.
    5. Place salmon and vegetables on a plate and offer a lemon half for squeezing over fish and vegetables.

    Vegetarian Baked Taquitos

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup cooked black beans
    • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted
    • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 12 corn tortillas

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
    2. Place the beans, corn, cheese, cumin, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl and stir to combine.
    3. Place two corn tortillas at a time in between two sheets of damp paper towel and microwave for 20-30 seconds to loosen (this will prevent the tortillas from cracking when they are rolled).
    4. With one tortilla in front of you place 2 tablespoons of the mixture on the side closest to you and roll it up. *
    5. Place the taquitos seam-side down on a foil-lined cookie sheet, spray the tops lightly with cooking oil and bake for 25 minutes.

    * If needed, use a toothpick to hold TAQUITO secure and remove it after baking.
