Chicken Cottage Pie

I know, I know. Cottage pie is filled with beef and not chicken. But I love to switch it up from time to time. Whatever you’d like to call it, it was stinking amazing! I actually ended up liking it more than the traditional cottage or shepherd’s pie. Filling: 2 large Chicken Breasts; cubed 1Continue reading “Chicken Cottage Pie”

Herb Chicken & Bacon Mushroom Gravy

I’m getting better about cooking meals for just 2 people instead of an army. Chicken with mushroom gravy sounded really good and I had everything I needed in my kitchen. I love when that happens! You can add more herbs to the gravy if you’d like to amp up the flavor.  Chicken: 2 Large ChickenContinue reading “Herb Chicken & Bacon Mushroom Gravy”

Smoky Italian Tomato Bisque

It’s a bit dreary today and tomato soup sounded so good!

A little goesContinue reading “Smoky Italian Tomato Bisque”

Satay Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry

I haven’t had Satay Chicken Stir Fry in a hot minute. It’s definitely one of my favorites, but it’s a smidge calorific. You can use whatever vegetables you like best and you can swap beef or pork for the chicken with great results! 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil 2 large Chicken Breasts; sliced 1 cup BroccoliContinue reading “Satay Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry”

Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but this is my weakness. I grew up eating banana pudding and love love LOVE it! Folding whipped cream into the pudding makes it so light and airy. 10-12 Pepperidge Farms Chessmen Cookies 1 cup Nilla Wafers 3 large Bananas 3 1/2 cups Whipped Cream; divided Pudding: 3Continue reading “Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding”

Green Chile Chicken Flautas

First time making and trying flautas! I was forced to eat frozen taquitos when I was younger and haven’t been interested in rolled tacos since. But I had some rotisserie chicken I needed to use up and I saw a post on instagram that looked so delicious!  15 uncooked Flour Tortillas 4 cups Rotisserie ChickenContinue reading “Green Chile Chicken Flautas”
