Crispy Honey BBQ Chicken Bites


We are always looking for ways to make simple meals that are a bit different to add a little bit of something to our everyday dishes. We eat quite a bit of chicken breast cut into bites and tenders and am always trying different ways to cook them or top them. These would be great…

Mongolian Chicken with Broccoli


The hardest part of this meal is cutting the chicken, broccoli, and making the rice. Seriously. It is very simple. When my daughter was making dinner she thought at first it was going to be too much but in the end she said how easy it really was. Mongolian Beef is generally served as thin…

Chicken Tetrazzini (with/without canned soup)


Sometimes we use the cream of soups in our meals because it seems easier. My kids both think the canned stuff is icky and smells weird. They don’t mind it cooked into the casserole but actually opening and mixing it in they both squirm and try to get out of it. There is a simple…

Creamy Parmesan Skillet Chicken and Rice


When you need a meal that can be made in a little more than 30 minutes skillet dinners are often a great choice! I love one skillet meals. Seriously. I can make a whole entree in one pan? I am on it. I hate doing dishes. This is why we have a dishwasher but we…

Simple Slow Cooker Orange Chicken


Has anyone else noticed that bloggers you have followed suddenly gone? My following list has dropped some people off and I just noticed that some of you I have followed for years are missing. If you see I am not following you anymore let me know! I will be happy to follow you again. Sorry,…

Tuscan Chicken (Marry Me Chicken)


My son made this dish on his own with my just giving him a few guidelines. He learned a lot from this dish. Like to have your spices ready to go before you turn the pan on so the olive oil doesn’t burn. Yes, he started over again. But, in the end he did a…

Orzo, Goat Cheese, and Craisin Salad


Back to school time is tough not only for me but for my kids. They both start feeling a bit anxious before school starts. Thought they have been through this many times now it always surprises us when they start to get moody and acting out a bit two – four weeks before school starts….

Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu


We have found that grilling for us really cuts down on the amount of time it takes to get dinner on the table. I try to have the meat pounded down and marinating (if necessary) early in the morning so that by the time we are all home for dinner it is putting together a…

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas Verde


This is a great use for leftover chicken. I would recommend doubling the chicken when you are cooking it one night to have leftovers for this meal. I love to cook meat once and have 2 meals!  Also, several of the recipes I have in my stash contain canned cream of … soup. I try…

Cheesy Chicken and Rice


As we were coming to the end of the month I was digging into the bottom of the freezer (remember we do one big grocery shop a month) and we found more chicken breasts. I was feeling in the mood for comfort food (it is getting chilly at night again and I can see one…

Grilled Lemon Chicken


Still giving our grill a workout this summer. My kids both LOVE lemon chicken and we have had lots of chicken as it has been on sale at least once a month so we are buying 20-25 pounds at a time. We had a small bunch of asparagus so we grilled that too with butter,…

BBQ Chicken on Texas Toast


This was one of the days that it was almost 110 outside with the heat index. Even grilling seemed difficult because you had to stand outside in the heat. Dinner was made in our slow cooker. It could cook all day and barely raised the heat in the kitchen. Add to that homemade bread in…
