One Pan Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas


We are in the creamy, comfort food mode right now. Chicken Enchilada Verde the other night and One Pan Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada last night. Our life is out of control right now. It seems all I am doing is getting in a car and dropping one person off and running the the next spot…

Easy Honey Garlic Chicken


I am finally catching up with life. After the little glitch at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Tuesday (tax day in the US) I had a few returns that needed some attention because they wouldn’t transmit electronically. Got them all straightened out in some form and taken care of. So the additional day of…

Rustic Garlic Chicken Lasagna


I am always saying try to make do with what you have on hand. This was definitely one of those meals. I had a package of chicken that I HAD to use or I was going to have to throw it away and I hate wasting food. I knew I was going to be gone…

Chicken Quinoa Bowl with Roasted Italian Red Pepper Sauce


So even though I am trying to keep meals simple I am still trying to get vegetables and good foods into my family. The great part is that you can make the sauce for this bowl a day or so ahead of time when you have free time AND it will taste even better because…

Barbecue Chicken and Potato Skillet Dinner


I am still trying super simple dinners most nights of the week right now. I keep telling myself things will slow down and I know things are going to come to an abrupt stop very soon but until then I will enjoy the ride of senior year with my daughter and finishing freshman year with…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli


So many people are looking for leftover ham recipes. I have so many but one of our favorite is the Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli. This is great for using up 2 leftovers. After Easter dinner we don’t want ham again right away so my daughter made chicken tenders for her and her friend. I had…

Spiedie Chicken


In the Binghamton area of New York Spiedie Chicken is a huge thing. Every festival, family picnic, and barbecue seem to have some form of this on the menu. I love the fresh taste of the chicken. The chicken is usually served on white bread or a hot dog roll, plain. Now, I am a…

Chicken, Green Bean, and Stuffing Casserole


When we are stuck at home with a foot of snow falling outside and more expected over the next few days I want comfort food. Warm, stick to your ribs, casseroles. This was the first one that came to mind as I was looking through the pantry for ingredients. I usually make Chicken, Green Bean,…

Chicken with Creamy Garlic Sauce Bowl


My family has been a bit obsessed by bowls lately. I think it is such a novel idea that they can eat dinner out of a bowl rather than on a plate that they actually are eating more vegetables and grains this way. I didn’t have brown rice mix which is what I REALLY wanted…

Sesame Chicken and Broccoli


We are stuck on chicken right now. Chicken breasts were only $1.59 a pound in bulk at our local grocery store so we have 30 lbs. of chicken in the freezer! Lots of chicken dishes will be appearing this month. We are just finishing up a No Buy January when we clean our cupboards and…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili


The lower the pantry cupboards and freezer gets the harder it is to come up with quick easy meals. I am scouring the cupboards and freezer trying to put things together that make sense. We have quite a few cans of beans, tomatoes, and corn left from the November canned goods sale at our local…
