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

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.

Dinner tonight for me and my brothers. French Onion Chicken Sandwiches with Rosemary Parmesan Red Potatoes and a side salad. Thumbs up across the board!

SameContinue reading “French Onion Chicken Sandwiches”

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”
