Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

At Gabriella’s Italian Grill and Pizzeria in Oklahoma City, I ordered chicken piccata served over roasted Brussels sprouts. It was one of the gluten-free options on the menu.

halibut with red curry sauce

Red Curry Halibut

Devils on Horseback

Wichita salmon

Wichita Salmon

I suppose this dish could be called Salmon over Cannellini Beans and Spinach or something a bit more descriptive, but I’ve always called it Wichita Salmon. Years ago on an RV trip through Kansas, we ate at a restaurant in Wichita whose name I long ago forgot. After I raved […]
