Buffalo Chicken Nachos


This past weekend I made a large slow cooker batch of Buffalo Chicken (chicken breasts, hot sauce, butter, and garlic). I used 4-5 pounds of chicken breast so that I could make several meals out of one big pot of Buffalo Chicken. One simple meal was Buffalo Chicken over egg noodles with a sprinkle of…

Easy Chicken Parmesan


Trying to get back into real life after being away for a week is tough. There are so many emails, phone calls, and things to catch up on for the schools, and kids. I love the peaceful rejuvenated feeling I have when I am away. Now I need to work on keeping it while I…

Balsamic Italian Chicken


This is a horrible picture of a really delicious dish. I wish you could have smelled our house while this was cooking. Both kids came into the house and asked what we were having for dinner. They were both excited when I told them. Verdict: This dish has tons of flavor. The moment I bit…

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits


This dish wasn’t quite what I meant it to be in the beginning. I put the chicken in the slow cooker and planned on being home about 8 pm from Lansing to make simple Baking Powder Biscuits to go with the meal. When at 9:30 pm we were still searching for book covers for the…

Simple Chicken Enchilada Verde


Every day is getting 3 to 4 minutes shorter. Night is coming earlier and earlier. You can feel it and smell it in the air. Fall is on its way in. In many ways I don’t want to admit it but as we sit on the bluff and look to the lake at 8:50 we…

Flavorful Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich


So, as we close in on the end of the month I am trying really hard to buy as little extra as possible. I had all the ingredients in my refrigerator except the loaf of bread which was on sale this week! Yes! I could have baked a loaf but I was trying to make…

Cheesy Chicken and Stuffing Casserole


I was told this was the perfect weeknight meal.  Though I would usually make my own cream of chicken soup mixture I decided to use a can.  This was super simple to put together. The hardest part was waiting the 45-60 minutes for it to bake. Verdict: I was really ready to hate this dish….

Barbecue Pineapple Chicken


When we were taking inventory of our pantry recently I realized I had quite a few extra bottles of barbecue sauce on hand. I am trying to keep the grocery budget down so I decided that using some of the extra barbecue sauce was a must. A can on pineapple, an orange pepper, chicken breasts,…

French Onion Chicken


  My family loves French Onion Soup. Even my onion hating daughter likes French Onion Soup. She says it is because the onions don’t taste like onions. I think the addition of balsamic vinegar helps in this dish. It is takes over an hour to make but most of the time is waiting for the…

Chicken Wrap Casserole


This dish was super hard to photograph and even harder to describe.  Using the rest of our crescent rolls that were on sale last week I was able to make this dish that has been on most tables since we were kids. This is one of those casseroles that most people remember from their mother…

Chicken Milanese


This is a favorite go-to meal of ours because it is so simple! Those days when you don’t know what you want for dinner or put off cooking hoping that they will all go get a bowl of cereal or pick at leftovers from the refrigerator, this meal could get you through those times. This…

Chicken Barbecue


With a busy schedule a meal with limited clean up and preparation is a must in your menu planning. During the summer next to our slow cooker our grill is the most used appliance we have. I love that I can marinate meat overnight and when we are ready to cook I can lay it…
