What's For Dinner?

I don't know about you, but I'm always wondering what to have for dinner. I have found some great recipes in the Simple & Delicious and Kraft Food magazines. Here are two of my new favorites that I have recently tried:
Sweet Citrus Chicken:
1 2/3 cups hot water
1 6oz. package of chicken stuffing mix
6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 lbs.), pounded to 1/2" thickness
2/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 400 deg. Add hot water to stuffing mix: stir just until moistened. Set aside.
Place chicken in 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Mix juice, sugar, and butter until well blended; pour over chicken. Top with prepared stuffing.
Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serves 6
Orange - Glazed Pork Chops:
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 Tbsp. orange juice
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
4 bone in pork loin chops (1/2" thick and 8 ounces each)
1 tsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
In a small bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice, mustard, soysauce, garlic; set aside.
In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oilon both sides over medium-high heat: sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, uncovered 10 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160 deg. Remove and keep warm.
Add marmalade mixture to the skillet: bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes or until thickened. Spoon over pork chops. Yields 4 servings!
I hope you enjoy these recipes!!

Hi, Kim. I'd love to know how you got buttons to show up on your blog. I've been trying to do buttons for a while now, but I can't figure them out. Help? . . .
