2014 ONIE Nutrition Calendar

The 2014 ONIE Nutrition Calendars have arrived and distribution has begun!  Each month features a recipe prepared in the ONIE Test Kitchen to make sure it is healthy, tasty, and hearty. These recipes are easy on the budget, and fit your busy schedule. You may pick up your calendar at any statewide DHS office, an Oklahoma City Metropolitan library, and a Norman Public library. For your convenience, just follow the link to connect to the website for locations. The recipe for January is Skillet Chicken.  I tried this recipe myself last evening, and everyone just raved about it.  I served it with a side salad and some steamed brown rice for a tasty, healthy, and hearty winter evening meal.
