Juicy chicken breasts marinated in lemon balsamic dressing topped with melty mozzarella cheese and fresh tomato bruschetta is sure to become one of your family favorites! It makes an easy weeknight meal that everyone will love!

Once my chicken is finished cooking, I add bruschetta topping and drizzle it with balsamic glaze for an impressive dish that pairs nicely with grilled bread, salad or pasta – or can even stand alone!

Stuffed Cabbage is an irresistibly delicious recipe everyone will adore! Packed full of juicy ground meats and homemade tomato sauce, its vibrant cabbage leaves provide the perfect container to encase this juicy and succulent filling.
Preheat the oven to 350F and lightly grease a large baking dish before setting it aside.
Blanch the cabbage: Bring a pot of water to boil, place an entire head of cabbage (without its thick core) into it, and blanch for just one or two minutes, until its leaves begin to soften and become easier to remove from the head of cabbage.
Fill the shell: Combine ground meats, rice, bread crumbs, onion, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl before stirring in one cup of marinara sauce and mixing thoroughly.
For this cabbage dish, use a paring knife to carefully remove each leaf’s hard triangular ribs before laying them flat on a tabletop. Place a few spoonfuls of filling onto each leaf before rolling up like you would for burritos – seam side down in your prepared pan – with remaining sauce covering top. Bake until cooked through!

While your steak is in the air fryer, melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan on medium heat and add 2 cloves of minced garlic until fragrant. Use this garlic butter as a marinade for air fryer steak bites before topping with fresh parsley before serving.
