Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Share

This recipe is apparently a take-off on a dish served at P.F. Chang’s, a Chinese restaurant chain. The recipe is easy to throw together and you get a big bang for your buck in terms of flavor. It reminded me of an Asian sloppy Joe (Sloppy Joe’s were one of my favorite school lunches growing […]

Easy Cold Sesame Noodles with Shredded Chicken

Share

I know that I haven’t posted in a while. My life has taken on a new focus – homework – now that the triplets are in middle school.  I make sure the boys successfully complete the mounds of homework that they are assigned. I am also the official question-answerer. Their math homework is definitely keeping […]

Crispy Chicken and Apple Salad

Share

This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, […]

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Share

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

Thai Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts

Share

This is now one of my go-to summer chicken recipes. I have made it numerous times and each time I didn’t let the chicken marinate for nearly as long as I should have. Despite my blunder, the chicken was incredibly moist and flavorful each time. There’s something about letting boneless chicken breasts sit in coconut […]

Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Share

This is one of the quick recipes that I made the other day when my parents dropped by. About a month ago, we went to a barbecue to celebrate my nephew’s graduation from 8th grade, and my sister grilled some yogurt-marinated chicken that I couldn’t get enough of. It was so moist and flavorful. I […]

Chicken, Ham and Cheddar Roll-Ups

Share

I made these the other night and they were delicious. I almost made them two nights in a row, they were that good. I make another version of chicken roll-ups that are pan fried. These are slightly different because they are breaded and baked. I was surprised by how nicely these roll-ups browned in the […]

Chicken and Rice Soup

After all these years of blogging, I can’t believe I haven’t posted a classic chicken and rice soup recipe.   Well here it is!  This is a delicious, simple chicken soup and if you have a rotisserie chicken, the soup will come together in no time.   It’s perfect comfort food for a cold night, or for […]

Pressure Cooker Chicken Piccata

Share

Guess what I got for Christmas? A pressure cooker! This past fall, I read about the resurgence in popularity of pressure cookers. They sounded a lot more appealing than the one my mom used when I was growing up. She used hers fairly frequently and it had a valve on top that made a terribly […]

Grilled Chicken with Pesto and Marinated Tomatoes

Share

 

 

I love quick, flavorful summer meals and this is one of them. I modified the recipe below slightly. It was easy to start with, but I wanted to make it easier so I didn’t bother butterflying/pounding the chicken. I also cheated and bought some pre-made pesto. I dumped the pesto into a bowl, forgot to […]
