Baked Chicken Parmesan

The husband requested a pasta dish for dinner and Chicken Parm with spaghetti sounded perfect! It’s a great weeknight meal, but the deep fried nature of the dish can be a bit unhealthy. We wanted a lighter option for dinners and this delivered! 3 large Chicken Breasts 2 cups Flour 2 cups Panko Breadcrumbs 1Continue reading “Baked Chicken Parmesan”

Baked Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken is kind of a pain to make at home if you don’t have a Tandoori oven, but dang it’s so worth it! The smoked paprika is key for the traditional tandoori smokiness. So delicious! Bone in-skin on chicken works the best, but this recipe also works well with chicken breast for a lighter option.Continue reading “Baked Tandoori Chicken”

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”

Chicken Fajita Salad

I had a hankering for a hearty salad. Chicken Fajita Salad to the rescue! It also works great with shrimp, steak or ground beef/turkey. You can use taco seasoning, but I love using smoky chile powders so I made my own. The Chipotle Ranch can be made by mixing bottled Ranch with Chipotle and SmokedContinue reading “Chicken Fajita Salad”

Soy Lime Glazed Party Wings

Happy Wing Wednesday! I had some Soy Lime Glaze leftover from dinner last night, so Soy Lime Glazed Wings it is! I added a drizzle of Sriracha Aioli to kick the heat up a bit. So delicious!  Chicken Wings: 4 lbs Chicken Wings; tips removed 1 teaspoon Ginger Powder 2 Tablespoons Smoked Paprika  Salt andContinue reading “Soy Lime Glazed Party Wings”

Soy Lime Glazed Chicken Breasts

It’s been pretty cold and rainy so I opted to bake the chicken instead of smoking them. Plus I forgot that I’d ran out of wood pellets. Whoops! Chicken: 3 large Chicken Breasts ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder ½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika Salt and Pepper to taste Sauce: ¼ cup Lime Juice ¼ cup Soy SauceContinue reading “Soy Lime Glazed Chicken Breasts”

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

We decided on Cherry Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps today. They were just what we needed! So light and delicious. Lettuce makes a delicious, crispy substitute for bread with this classic salad. 12-15 Lettuce Leaves; rinsed and dried Toasted Walnuts (optional) Tomato Slices (optional) Chicken Salad: 20 oz. canned Chicken Breast ⅔ cup Celery; chopped ½Continue reading “Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps”

Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl

I love Chipotle’s Chicken Burrito Bowls, but I’m not a fan of paying almost $10 for it when I can make it much cheaper and add more toppings. I also made a batch of my Cantina Style Salsa to go with it. Chicken: 3 large Chicken Thighs 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 teaspoon Ancho ChileContinue reading “Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl”

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! Stir Fry: 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil 2 large Chicken Breasts; sliced 1Continue reading “Satay Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry”
