This Cubano Chicken Roll Up idea came to me after having a serious pickle craving! I wanted to make a hot dish utilizing dill pickles in some way and decided to stuff a chicken breast with everything you'd normally find in a Cuban Sandwich – pickles, mustard, Swiss, and ham. But I took it a step further and brined the cutlets overnight in pickle juice for extra flavor, the results were outstanding!!!

Orecchiette Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Broccoli is one of my favorite weeknight pasta dishes, a real crowd-pleaser, and my husband even goes back for seconds. This is the only way I can get Madison to eat broccoli, I cook the pasta and broccoli at the same time all in the same pot, which creates a pesto-like broccoli sauce the kids can't pick out (trust me, it's so good!).
