Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli

Day 29 of my #PantryChallenge The last 2 days have been pretty ick, so it was broth and sleep for me. But, I finally felt up to cooking! I got winded easily and had to take a seat more than I care to admit, but it got done. Very rustic Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli withContinue reading “Teriyaki Chicken & Broccoli”

Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Day 36 of the #PantryChallenge  I had a lot of the Curried Sweet Potato Soup I made last night left over so I repurposed it. Chicken & Vegetable Curry is what’s for dinner! I normally add cauliflower, sugar snap peas and zucchini but didn’t have any on hand.  Chicken & Vegetable Curry Servings: 5 CookingContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”

Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

Day 34 of my #PantryChallenge Dinner tonight is Sweet & Sour Meatballs over farfalle pasta! I normally make my meatballs with a 70/30 pork to beef ratio, but didn’t have any ground beef defrosted. 🤷‍♀️ So pork it is! This recipe also works great with ground turkey. You can, of course, use bottled sweet andContinue reading “Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs”

Chicken & Veggie Egg Rolls

I LOVE chicken egg rolls! They’re amazing with tangy sweet and sour sauce! ❤️ They’re much cheaper and tastier if you make them at home. Plus, they’re really not that hard to make and you know exactly what’s in them. No 10 syllable preservatives here! Shrimp and chicken are my personal favorites, but you canContinue reading “Chicken & Veggie Egg Rolls”

Copycat Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken

Copycat P.F. Chang’s Crispy Honey Chicken

Day 7 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge No eating out, no take-out and no new groceries. Another part of this challenge is to stop food waste in my kitchen.

Chang’s Crispy Honey Chicken”

Leftover Beef Bulgogi Fried Rice

Making fried rice from leftover Chinese, Thai and Japanese dishes is one of my FAVORITE things to do and it’s why I always order too much. It works with so many different main dishes and is such a filling, inexpensive and quick way of clearing out the fridge. You can add any vegetables you mayContinue reading “Leftover Beef Bulgogi Fried Rice”

Jerk Chicken Skewers

I made enough of the spice mixture to fill the mason jar, it was that good! I prepped all the skewers last night, then just threw them on my griddle for lunch. Served with steamed rice and sautéed Cinnamon Butter Sweet Potatoes, they’re a quick, low calorie, high flavor supper!  Jerk Chicken Skewers Servings: 2Continue reading “Jerk Chicken Skewers”
