Chicken Enchilada Dip

We had friends coming over the other night for what I thought was AFTER dinner, only they were running late and hadn’t had dinner.   Have you ever been in that situation where you planned on putting one thing out only to have plans change and you needed something quick! I wanted to throw something together with […]

Shredded Chicken Enchiladas

Yum I haven’t made a Mexican dinner in a while, shocking I know, considering how much we love Mexican around here. But in all honesty I’ve been trying to avoid dairy and animal products since my cholesterol came back so high and also as a result of the research I’ve been doing on animal products. And […]

White Bean Chicken Chili

I’m not sure if this white bean chicken chili deserves the title ‘chili’.  Does substituting chicken for ground beef still count as a chili? Well, you can look at this yummy dish as a chili or a very hearty soup.  Either way it’s loaded with goodness. Cannellini beans, if you aren’t familiar with them, are large white […]

Healthy Chicken Chili

Roasted Chicken in a Wine and Butter Sauce

  I have a love/hate relationship with my camera. This is one of those dinners that I wish the picture showed how good it really was.  But, as any food blogger knows, the kitchen is the WORST place for photography, especially since my overhead lights are half LED bright white and other others are old […]

Chicken Parmesan

Yum Why am I doing a post on basic Chicken Parmesan?  Well I guess it’s to share with you some of the issues I’ve had when making it and not being all that happy with the results time and time again. For starters: I used to quick fry the chicken in a cheap processed vegetable oil to give it […]

Blackened Chicken

 Yum Blackened chicken is NOT the result of burning your chicken … or cooking it too long…. or from it sticking to the pan. The ‘blackened’ part of the chicken is the result of a medley of spices, usually Cajun, that when put to high heat, gives the chicken an outer char. A nice blend of paprika […]

Oven Fried Chicken

I used to think there was only one way to get chicken crispy and that was by frying it. My friend Suzy invited us over for dinner one night and made the most delicious chicken cutlets.  She used panko breadcrumbs.  I really liked the texture it gave her chicken.  She fried in first in a […]
