Braided Chicken Calzone

Ever have a day where you really just don’t want to cook everything from scratch or really want to cook that much at all.  I occasionally do and lucky for me, this particular night, E must have know and he took over the kitchen and created quite the tasty dinner. These flavors came together well…

Chicken Meatballs & Spaghetti

Normally, when I think meatballs, I think meat – good ol’ grade a beef.   Usually mixed with marinara sauce and noodles.  But meatballs aren’t just for hamburger anymore and this tasty chicken variation really proves that.  The combination of the leaner ground chicken, flavorful pizza sauce and fresh gooeyness of the mozzarella cheese creates…

Easy Chicken Dumpling Soup

I consider this a great cheater recipe.  One that can easily be made on a weeknight and still be in bed in time for a good night sleep.  The base is going to be the same as other chicken soups, but the dumpling is really the cheater part of it.  Instead of making your own…

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

It was one of those weekends.  You know the ones – when there are so many things to get done, when you have a few events to go to and then all of the house chores that have been put off during the week…now, to worry about dinner…No Thank You!  I wanted something easy where…

Browned Butter Chicken

About six months ago, we were trying to figure out what was going to be for dinner, but I was feeling uninspired.  Maybe that isn’t something that I should admit on this blog, but it happens to the best of us.  Days can get long and balancing everything from work to home to cleaning to…

Sesame Honey Soy Chicken Breast

There isn’t much to tell about this quick weeknight dinner.  Just four ingredients coming together to make your dinner an easy one.  I had made this with the Peanut Sauce and Soba noodles in the span of 30 minutes.  It is so rewarding to make a really satisfying meal in a short amount of time….

Chicken Pot Pie

I know that I have said it before, but there is a certain satisfaction that comes from making a really good recipe for your family.  Especially when that recipe is comfort food related and you haven’t made it before.    Most of the Chicken Pot Pies I have had in my life have come from…

Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken

Vow to myself…try to use the slow cooker more.  Yes, it does take some planning, but it is soooooo easy and makes the week nights so much more productive for other things…like looking for more recipes to try out.  hehehe  But really, I don’t know that I have had a slow cooker recipe not turn…

Simple Stove Top Chicken Dinner

An old saying that is thrown around, but not always heeded is: ‘Some times less is more.’  In this case, the less can be more appealing because it’s simple to put together, easy to cook and leaves you with a quite tasty finished product.  I like dinners like this for those nights that you would…

Cider Brined & Glazed Turkey

I had the pleasure of enjoying two Thanksgivings last year.  One in the Twin Cities and one in my hometown.  The one in the Twin Cities was a large pot luck with many people and LOTS of food.  The one in my home town involved me creating the menu and really getting to try some…
