Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Bowls


I know this says it is a bowl but my picture is of a plate. I love having my food spread out rather than in a bowl like the rest of my family so I can get the perfect forkful of each piece. Plus you can easier see all the parts of the meal. Why…

Anchor Bar (The Original) Buffalo Wings


Having lived in Western New York for almost 20 years we love our Buffalo wings. The problem is that outside of Western New York few wings live up to our standards. The crispiness, the tang of the sauce, the slight but not overpowering heat is the sign of a good medium wing. Verdict: We love…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders


We are still waiting for Covid test results. I think it was easier waiting for our children to be born than it is waiting for these test results. At least then we had the anticipation of something good coming. Right now we are in kind of this limbo. Can we go get groceries on Thursday?…

Grilled Mexican Chicken with Cheese Sauce


I love cheese! Grilled chicken with cheese sauce? Even better. We use this cheese sauce on lots of things – Nachos, warm pretzels, and now chicken. Verdict: This is a delicious warming dish. It felt like a big comfort food hug. My son added lots of hot salsa to the top of his chicken (see…

Grilled Sweet Asian Chili Chicken


We are still in the high 80s and low 90s here. It has been a weird summer in that we live less than a mile from the beach and we haven’t been at all this summer. We are still staying away from most people which means lots of family time. We have always been close…

Grilled Mediterranean Chicken with Dill Sauce


Have you noticed a chicken theme to my recipes lately? Boneless, skinless chicken breasts has gone back down to about $1.88 a pound after raising in price right after the pandemic started.

Orange Chicken


When we order Chinese takeout I know that my daughter will choose Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken, or Honey Chicken depending on her mood. With the Covid-19 shutdowns the two Chinese restaurants in our little town were closed for several months. There are only two things that my kids think that I don’t make better than…

Grilled Caprese Chicken


This year since we have been home we started a container garden off our back deck. We tried this once before but we are normally gone every weekend and a few weeks in June, July, and August except for maybe one or two. Not good for a garden. Needless to say, our last attempt ended…

Grilled Chicken Piccata


My daughter’s favorite meal is Chicken Piccata. Every time we go out to eat if the restaurant has Chicken Piccata I can count on her to order it. The funny thing is 90% of the time 1/2 way through the meal she will turn to me and say, “Yours is so much better.” My secret?…

Chicken Strip Wraps with Boom Boom Sauce


We are getting to the bottom of our freezer! In our No Buy June we are cleaning out our freezer that we used to stock up on during the “Stay Home. Stay Safe.” time. We know that there may be another time that we are limited in movements again so we are cleaning out the…

Huli Huli Chicken


Huli Huli Chicken is a Hawaiian dish. Huli means “turn” in Hawaiian and refers to the way the chicken is cooked. It is usually cooked between two large racks that are constantly flipped to get a good char and lots of surface cooking. I don’t have two large racks to cook on my grill but…
