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 […]

Sweet ‘n Sour Chicken

Do yourself a favor and make this Sweet ‘n Sour Chicken ~ TONITE!! I found this recipe at Mels Kitchen Cafe last year and did an immediate post on it after I made it.  But since then, I’ve actually improved a bit in my photography and felt it was only right to retake this picture for […]

Chicken and Rice Casserole (with NO creamed soups!)

I believe there are two types of people in this world.  Those who love casseroles and those who don’t.  Which are you? I, personally, am a huge fan of casseroles because I am a mom afterall, and us moms LOVE these types of dishes.  They only mess up one pan, you get your protein, carb […]

Tomato Basil Chicken

The name, Tomato Basil Chicken, probably gives away that this recipe is best made in the summer months, so I won’t point out the obvious.  But there really is nothing better than picking your own tomatoes fresh from the garden and using them that night in your dinner.  If you pick them when ripe, they are just […]

Smoked Mozzerella, Chicken, Spinach and Penne Salad

  I’ve been on a carb kick lately for some reason.  Usually when I see recipes with some sort of pasta I tend to shy away from them not because I’m a low carb guru, but because of the refined white flours and sugars in the pasta itself. We are still experimenting with whole wheat pasta.  […]

Chicken Enchiladas

  I have another Chicken Enchilada recipe on this site.  That one is very simple and only involves chicken, cheese and enchilada sauce.  It’s quick, it’s easy and perfect for a weeknight, especially if the chicken is already precooked.  You can find that recipe here. This Chicken Enchilada recipe is different in that it includes […]

Mediterranean Chicken

Do not let this dish fool you.  It is one of the least time consuming dishes I make.  It sounds very fancy, but it’s anything but. This one skillet meal is called Mediterranean Chicken and yes I overstuffed the chicken breasts with a little too much cheese, so don’t be alarmed. Chicken breasts are stuffed with […]

Baked Garlic Chicken

Yum This baked garlic chicken recipe has FAST become one of our favorite ways to eat chicken in our house right now.  It has the most wonderful garlic flavor that’s not too overpowering but you can taste it in every bite. I initially made this with absolutely zero expectation that my kids would eat it.  After […]

Slow Roasted Rottisserie Chicken

I don’t know about you, but I don’t own a slow roaster like they do in the stores, and since I find it almost impossible to find an ORGANIC Rotisserie chicken, I had to take matters into my own hands. So I grabbed an organic chicken and some spices and starting experimenting.  There is enough […]
