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.

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”

Five Spice Chicken Spring Rolls

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made Vietnamese Spring Rolls or Gỏi Cuốn and Spicy Peanut Sauce. I normally make them with shrimp, but Chicken sounded amazing.

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.

I love homemade Italian Dressing! The flavor is so much more amazing than anything you can find bottled in stores and you can pronounce all of it’s ingredients, which is always a plus in my book. It goes great on darn near every type of meat and vegetable! 1/2 cup Olive Oil 1/3 cup Red Wine VinegarContinue reading “2 Minute Italian Dressing”

Hawaiian Mac Salad

When I was vacationing with my family in Maui years back everything was served with this amazing Macaroni Salad, locally referred to simply as Mac Salad. It varies from its mainland cousin with its lack of mustard and minimal vinegar. It’s a simple and amazing recipe that is my go-to potluck recipe! It comes togetherContinue reading “Hawaiian Mac Salad”
