Q I just remodeled my kitchen and would like to have a few people over for dinner. However, I've never been much of a cook. I would love to serve a simple, quick and healthy chicken dish, perhaps a one-dish meal so I do not have to worry about timing different parts of the meal. Can you suggest something?

Now that you have spent time remodeling your kitchen, you'll definitely want to spend some time using it! One-dish meals are a perfect entrée into cooking, and the variety of ingredients often means a colorful and nutritious dish as well. Try any of these tasty chicken dishes like the Calico Chicken with Penne, the versatile Pepper Chicken Pasta and the mouth watering Ranch Chicken and Rice Bake. Offering a tossed green salad or a special beverage – maybe fresh-squeezed lemonade or fresh-brewed iced tea – are other ways to make the meal extra special without extraordinary effort.

Enjoy your new kitchen!
