I  found some easy to make and healthy recipes ,that I would like to share .
Eating healthy food is very important for everyone of us . Most of us Muslimas dedicate our lives to our families .So we have to be extra concerned what our family members are eating ,what our children are eating and how healthy it is .
I personally don't like spending too much time on the kitchen .I enjoy doing other things ,especially spending more time on studying my religion or doing my hobbies ,but I do enjoy cooking also .
I prefer to be organazied with food ,this way cooking doesn't keep me busy ,or doesn't take my entire day on cooking and cleaning .
I prefer to plan what to cook for the whole week .I choose the recipes or write down what I will make and put things that we need to buy in a grocery list .
Ok these are few recipes I would like to share with you and this is something I'm planning to make this week inshaAllah
Enjoy :)

2 medium green peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

2 clove(s) garlic, crushed with press

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven, heat oil on medium-high until hot. Sprinkle chicken all over with salt and black pepper; cook, in 2 batches, about 6 minutes per batch, until lightly browned on both sides. With tongs, transfer chicken pieces to small roasting pan (13" by 9") or jelly-roll pan (1 1/2" by 10 1/2").

Cover roasting pan with foil and bake chicken 25 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear when thickest part of thigh is pierced with tip of knife.

Meanwhile, in same Dutch oven, cook green peppers, garlic, and onion about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in paprika and cook 30 seconds. Add tomatoes with their juice, broth, water, and rice; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in frozen peas and olives.

Grease two 2- to 2 1/2-quart glass or ceramic baking dishes. Spoon half the rice mixture into each prepared baking dish. Carefully tuck thighs into hot rice mixture. Cover and bake one dish 25 minutes or until rice is tender and most of liquid is absorbed. Fluff rice to serve. Meanwhile, prepare second baking dish for freezing (see Thawing and Reheating Tips).


Instead of Dutch oven you can use normal pan.

JazakAllah for the awesome recipes and and an interesting blog. I have added you to my blog list.

A question regarding 1 can chicken broth. What exactly is that? Is it like chicken stock and where can one get halal ones from? Or is it just flavouring?

salam aleikum I use water instead of chicken stock .Or you can boil the chicken in water and then save the stock ,broth .
It says in the recipe 1 can is 14 ounces .
Its better to make your own stock,I have no idea where to get halal one ,but I used water instead of stock .
Thanks for adding me ,i will check your blog also inshaAllah
