Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Casserole


I made the Enchilada Sauce the other day then I made this Slow Cooker Enchilada Casserole with the sauce. You can make both the sauce and casserole on the same day or make the sauce one day and the casserole the next. Whatever will best fit into your schedule. Verdict: This was a delicious spicy…

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Gravy


So, the picture is a bit strange on this dish but my kids both liked it. I needed a quick dish to drop in the slow cooker so that we could eat in shifts and I could be out the door quickly. I had a bag of chicken breasts and after a quick search through…

Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken over Roasted Potatoes


When my daughter has friends over to visit I often tone down the cooking and do “normal” family foods like chicken nuggets, french fries or hot dogs. But, my daughter has certain friends that I know are up for anything. So, as when we made the Moroccan Chicken for dinner the entire afternoon all the…

Chicken Shawarma


My family loves Mediterranean flavors and since it is summer it is a perfect time for grilling! We de-boned the chicken thighs and removed the skin before marinating the chicken. You can buy the chicken this way but for the price of $.77 a pound versus $2.29 a pound I decided we could do it…

Parmesan Chicken with Garlic Kale and Spinach


Things are a bit hectic this week. My daughter left for camp yesterday. I took her up and dropped her off. It was a bit bitter-sweet as I realized that this would probably be her last summer at this camp (even thought she could attend one more season after her senior year) but I know…

Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese


This weekend was super busy so it is time to pull out an old favorite recipe. It’s not pretty but it is oh so good! This recipe was AMAZING!¬† I knew what I wanted to make but when I saw the recipe for Buffalo-Chicken Macaroni and Cheese on Foodnetwork.com my menu changed quickly. I followed…

Sesame Ginger Chicken


(Sorry about the picture quality but my family helped my out by taking dinner pictures the other night. This is the best shot they had.) We love Chinese food but it can be very expensive and you don’t always know what is in it. If we make it at home we can control the ingredients…

Black Pepper Chicken


Last night was one of those nights that we did not want to cook. It was 7:30 pm and the last thing anyone wanted to do was cook. Peanut butter and jelly or pizza was looking good. But, we stuck with the plan and it worked! The hardest part of the dish was making the…

Old Fashioned Chicken and Rice Casserole


If you grew up any time during the 1960s, 70s or even 80s you probably had some version of this dish for dinner at one time or another. The soups may have varied and the toppings may have varied but it was a standard meal in many homes. We were talking about this dish the…

Creamy Herbed Lemon Chicken


Well, onto dinner last night. This would make a delicious simple dish if you are looking for something with lots of flavor to serve this weekend. ¬†This dish smelled amazing as soon as we started cooking the chicken. I have been planning several days for this dinner. I had to rearrange my meals a bit…

Mexican Chicken Casserole with Loaded Mexican Rice


Since it’s Cinco de Mayo we decided to celebrate! Okay, not really, but since my daughter and I will be out-of-town on Cinco de Mayo we decided to celebrate a bit early. My children love celebrating food holidays. Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year, any holiday that centers around food and culture, they will be…

Spiedie Chicken


What is Spiedie Sauce? This is Spiedie Sauce. A Spiedie is a sandwich that is popular in the Binghamton, New York area. It has a Mediterranean/Greek flavor to it. It is meat marinated in a sauce of oil, vinegar, Italian spices, and mint. The ingredients vary slightly but are pretty similar. I bought a few…
