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”

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 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika Salt and Pepper to taste Sauce: 1/4 cup Lime Juice 1/4 cup Soy SauceContinue reading “Soy Lime Glazed Chicken Breasts”

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”

Montreal Pork Chops & Creamy Rice Bake

I haven’t had pork chops for a while. 😋 Time to change that! Baked Montreal Pork Chops & Creamy Rice. It’s a quick, easy recipe that doesn’t need babysitting. My favorite kind of meals!

Hawaiian Huli-Huli Chicken Tacos

Taco Monday, Hawaiian style! Chicken Huli Huli Tacos with Pineapple Pico de Gallo and Wasabi Mayo. I thought I’d made way too much Hawaiian Mac Salad, but it vanished. You can bake, grill or cook the chicken in a slow cooker if you don’t have a smoker, but I strongly recommend smoking it.   2Continue reading “Hawaiian Huli-Huli Chicken Tacos”

Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

Still mourning Taco Bell’s Fiesta Taco Salad. I added some things that don’t normally come with it and I baked the chicken in my toaster oven so I wasn’t babysitting my griddle. You can air fry the tortilla bowl too. Or you can do what I did and give yourself a second degree burn. Chicken:Continue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad”

Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks

I love chicken drumsticks! They’re easy to cook, affordable and make a great canvas for a variety of spices. I may or may not have forgotten that I pulled out 5 lbs a few days ago and needed to cook them tonight. Prep took all of 5 minutes, which was so awesome! Plus, I onlyContinue reading “Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks”

Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I was all set to make my BBQ Bacon Burgers last night, but I remembered last minute that it was my niece’s 12th birthday. Time to script the flip! We did Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash instead because…reasons. So the burgers are dinner tomorrow and I promise to post the hamburger bun recipe. Squash: 2Continue reading “Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash”

Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet

I had some leftover corn, homemade black beans and Mexican rice from the other night, so I tossed them all together. Cooking it all in one skillet means less dishes to clean which is just fine by me. It would have been better with cream cheese, but all of mine is frozen. What’s a girlContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

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.  1 quart Chicken Broth 3 large SweetContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”
