We're amidst a rainy streak here in SF, and as we do with most occasions, we're trying to make the most of it with delicious dishes. Susannah's got warm and hearty chili on the brain, and I'm planning to drown my sorrows in spicy chicken soup this week. How about you — what's your go-to dish when the storm blows in?
The technique and ingredients are simple, but the resulting chicken is juicy, succulent, and intensely delicious. Now is the perfect time to make this chicken because oranges are in season, and they're the major flavoring agent. The zest seeps into the chicken and permeates it with orange essence. I served it with white beans, but it would pair nicely with potatoes or rice. Get the recipe, after the break.

It's cold and rainy and while I was trying to eat healthy for the first couple of weeks in January, lately all I crave is comfort food. Think steaming soups, roasted meats, melted cheese. Since you may be feeling the same way, I've rounded up our best Winter comfort dishes.
On my first go around, I made the meatballs a little too large, so next time I'll aim for a more bite-sized meatball. Fans of simple chicken noodle soup will be blown away by these chicken meatballs combined with fresh cheese tortellini and delicious broth. This soup is wonderful the night it's cooked and, like many other comfort foods, even better the next day.
