Lemon Dijon Crusted Chicken Salad

I think most people like to have something a little lighter for dinner as the weather warms up and the days become longer. The night I decided to make a main course salad for dinner for Dennis and me. We both really enjoyed this salad, Dennis is still talking about it. My inspiration for this…

Skin-on, Bone-in Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Breasts

When I saw skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts at the market the other day, I decided to grab a package. It seems I mostly cook skinless, boneless chicken breasts and more often than not, the thin sliced breasts. I was in the mood to change things up a bit and that’s what I did. Last night…

Garlic Ranch Chicken

Yesterday, my daughter, Kylie, and I ran a few errands together. We stopped at Home Goods so I could pick up some gift wrap and cards and while we were looking around, she found a cookbook she’d been eyeing for awhile. I’ve found some really great coffee table books at Home Goods and yesterday, they…

Rustic Tuscan Garlic Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

Who doesn’t love a sheet pan dinner? It makes cooking for a family easy with minimal clean-up. I’m definitely on board with that. Even though I have a small family … just my husband, our daughter and me, I don’t mind an easy and quick solution for dinner some nights. I had some things in…

Chicken Kabobs

Marinated Grape Tomatoes, Arugula and Oregano Chicken Salad

Grape tomatoes are just like candy to me … I love them and they are as much of a staple in our home as cloves of garlic. I also love the mini heirloom tomatoes and cherry tomatoes … I’m not picky! Dennis loves to pack any of these types of tomatoes in his lunch and…

Cilantro Caesar Chicken

I bought a little too much cilantro the other day for my citrus cilantro rice, so decided to use some of it to add to my marinade for chicken breasts last night. I decided to use thin sliced chicken breasts … I like that they aren’t too large and are just the perfect size for…

Roasted Chicken and Grilled Artichoke Salad

Artichokes are such a great vegetable, full of antioxidants and low in calories and fat. I decided I’d make a salad for dinner tonight consisting of nothing more than chicken that I’d roast in the oven, mixed greens, grilled artichokes and shaved parmesan cheese. I started by cutting the top inch and most of the…
