Creamy Buffalo Chicken Taco Boats


We all love Buffalo Chicken. Anything Buffalo Chicken flavored is going to peak our interest. When I recently saw Buffalo Chicken Tacos on a menu I thought we could easily make something similar (or better!) at home.  That is the problem with our going out to eat is often we look at the menu or…

Barbecue Chicken Tacos


I am always looking for new ways to combine the flavors my family loves into new things. I hit upon tacos the other night. Why can’t I stuff tacos with Korean beef or barbecue chicken? Buffalo chicken or pizza toppings? Of course I can! We are trying to conserve money this month and clean out…

Chicken with Garlic Sauce


We love garlic. This chicken uses about 1 bulb of garlic (15-20 cloves). If you love garlic give this a try. This chicken is delicious and super quick to make on week nights. Pound the chicken down and it takes less time to cook and cooks more evenly. No dried out edges when the center…

Southwest Pasta Salad with Chicken


Slowly, slowly, slowly, the weather is turning. It has been almost Spring like the last couple days so my mind is turning to picnics, parties, and fun days at the beach. As we were driving home yesterday I remembered the chicken I had taken out for dinner and I really didn’t want to make what…

Chicken Parm Lasagna


Okay, so this was NOT the prettiest meal I have ever made but it was good! We had some extra time where everyone was home for one evening so I wanted to have a special meal. This takes a bit of preparation but I was also able to prep some meals for later while making…

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup


Breathe. Breathe. This is the mantra I keep repeating to myself all day. We are trying to keep things super simple right now. It seems that every year the schools, lessons, and classes try to pack more and more into May and the first week in June. Every class seems to have a recital or…

Creamy Firecracker Chicken Pasta (revisited)


I am revisiting a few of our favorite dishes on the weekends to see if the recipes still hold up. I first posted this recipe for Creamy Firecracker Chicken Pasta in April 2016 (click for link to original post). This dish is a great week day meal as it takes about 25-30 minutes to have…

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, 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…
