Coconut Curry Chicken

So my new favorite gadget is the InstaPot.  After testing out the pressure cooker feature for my burrito bowls, I was eager to try something slightly more complex. I would need a recipe specifically made for the InstaPot. I found a great recipe to work from for Coconut Curry Chicken.  First, I love curry and…

Chicken Burrito Bowl

So I have a new obsession, and its name is Instapot.  For its inaugural run, I made chicken burrito bowls. Twice. The first time was a learning curve, but I’m going to share photos of both dishes. I’ve wanted to make pulled anything for a while now, but didn’t feel like fiddling with my slow…

Chicken Tacos with Broccolini Slaw

It’s that time of the week again.  That one special day that’s reserved for tacos.  But what kind of tacos?  Chicken tacos with broccolini slaw.  This recipe is really a hodge-podge of two previous taco recipes; chicken tacos and salmon tacos with avocado crema.  I really liked the chicken taco recipe, and wanted to try…

Barbecue Turkey Burgers with Cole Slaw

  Tuesday is typically Taco Tuesday in my house.  Turkey Taco Tuesday to be exact, but this week my son and I were in the mood for something different.  Thinking back to my old turkey burger experiments, I suggested turkey burgers, and he agreed.  I made them often in the past, mostly filled with spinach…

General Tso Chicken

I’ve never had General Tso’s Chicken. I’ve heard of it, but the name alone never made sense to me as the name of a dish, so I never tried it. Until now. I needed a quick dinner, and I was short on supplies. I always seem to have chicken in the freezer, so I at…

Herbed Balsamic Chicken with Blue Cheese

I have six words for you.  Herbed balsamic chicken with blue cheese.  This is recipe number two of many to come.  I’m slowly easing my way into pan cooking and I’m absolutely in love with this herbed balsamic chicken with blue cheese recipe.  It’s a very simple dish to put together, but it sounds and…

Chicken Tacos

I’m feeling pretty good as a mom right now.  I’m scoring five for five on the dinner home front.  I can’t remember the last time Miles ate every bite of every meal with compliments five days in a row!  These chicken tacos are one of the successful dinners I would like to share with you….

Turkey Taco Pie

I think I was either in college or just out of college when I was introduced to taco pie.  A close friend of mine whipped it up one night and I thought it as a revelation. One because it was a cheap filling meal for a college student who could still feel like they made…

Chicken and Biscuits with Honey Butter

My friends will be the first to tell you that I’m just an “ok” cook. I can bake, but cooking is definitely hit or miss for me. I’ll give you an example. I tried to make Swedish meatballs the other night and they were soooo salty! I think it’s because I let the liquid reduce…

Chicken Marsala

Every time my son goes away to spend the summer with his dad, he comes like with a new favorite food. This summer is was mushrooms. More specifically a cheeseburger with swiss cheese and sautéed mushrooms. We have lots of chicken dinners in our house and one day I asked if he would mind if…

Chicken, Broccoli with Pasta in Garlic Cream Sauce

I know, this pic looks like a casserole. Luckily, it’s so much better than that! I was trying to think of something new to do with chicken, because it’s the main staple in my son’s diet. Also, broccoli is the only veggie my son will eat, so it’s hard to find recipe with the right,…
