Not long ago I made Sweet Pepper Chicken and it was good. But I wanted to up the game a bit and make it even better. Then I decided I needed to make it a one pan meal. I reinvented the Sweet Pepper Chicken and created One Pan Sweet Pepper Chicken Meal.
My days weren’t busy last week. I spent the entire week in bed. Once again the doc was less right than I’d hoped with his diagnosis and I was in a lot of pain. He now believes I have a torn muscle in my abdomen and wanted me completely quiet. But after a week of not really cooking I was losing it. So I made Busy Day Lime Vinaigrette Chicken.
If you’re in the mood for sweet and spicy chicken you can’t go wrong with Honey Sriracha Chicken! It’s sweet but with plenty of heat. It’s a way for me to serve food that’s reminiscent of Thai food without going too hot.
A while back Pete brought us a chicken pizza with Alfredo sauce. I expected not to like it but I did. Chicken in Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce is a way to get those same flavors in a delicious, easy to prepare meal!
I’m a big fan of chicken thighs and drumsticks but this recipe makes such juicy, flavorful chicken breasts I had to share it. The combination of bell peppers, onions, and chicken breasts is perfect with rice or egg noodles. And Sweet Pepper Chicken makes a great freezer meal!
This week for our family dinner I decided to make things a little less “formal.” By that I mean forks were optional! The grand kids are always happy with whatever I serve but this week I wanted to make it a little more fun for them by making something they could eat with their hands without getting in trouble. I thought of chicken strombolis but I couldn’t decide which one to make. So I made Chicken Strombolis 2 Ways!
The last couple of weeks have been really rough on my physically. I think the weather played a large part since it was in the 60’s one day then the 30’s the next and continued to roller-coaster that way. I’ve also had a flare of the CRPS which scares the heck out of me. And the worst part was that I felt so awful I didn’t want to cook and we ate take-out twice! I finally decided I needed to restock my freezer meals and I thought I’d share what I made with 10 Freezer Meals to Make This Weekend.
My very dear friend, Peg is coming for dinner and I’m going to serve chicken. That may seem like a kind of cheap and commonplace dinner to serve to a close friend but I’m making this chicken in a way I know Peg will love. I usually call Peg my Guinea Peg because I like to try recipes on that poor woman but I’ve already tested this recipe and all I can say is I have no problem serving it to people I care about! It’s simple but very tasty and since it’s the recipe of a world-famous chef I call it Keller Whole Roasted Chicken.
Chicken thighs, oh chicken thighs! We love those juicy little thighs and I serve them frequently but, like anything you make a lot they can start to seem like the same old thing. I’m not going to stop making chicken thighs. They’re delicious and inexpensive. But I don’t have to make them in the same old ways. I saw a picture on Pinterest that intrigued me so tonight it’s Roasted Balsamic Cranberry Chicken Thighs.
Lately I’ve seen a lot of recipes for whole chickens cooked in a slow cooker. This seemed like a great idea. I could get the chicken ready, pop it in the slow cooker, and forget about it for most of the day. So I decided to follow the basic instructions for Slow Cooker Whole Chicken and see for myself.
