Welcome to the Dining Room…Now Serving Jerk Chicken Pasta

Welcome to the dining room at Cady Reporting, where our staff masters the kitchen!  Much like court reporting, cooking takes preparation,  skill, and confidence.  Over the next few months, our court reporters and staff will show that their on-point skills are well up to the task of both court reporting and cooking.  Stay tuned to the blog for more delicious recipes for all occasions you can master in your own kitchen.

This recipe comes from one of our reporters, Katrina Dearborn.  Katrina says, “Almost ten years ago I went to lunch with a client. This was the dish I ordered. I analyzed it and kept tasting for flavor. After a few days went by I decided to try to replicate the recipe….this was before recipes were readily available online.  I made it and everyone in my family loved it. It became a favorite in my household.  I make mine a little spicy because we love spicy.”
