Citrus Chicken and Mango Habanero Mushroom Tacos

Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo and I was definitely going to be making Mexican food for dinner in celebration. I made sure to make my time spent in the kitchen as fun as possible while preparing our dinner. I usually have my favorite stations that I ask “Alexa” to play for me, but yesterday I…

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…

Mediterranean Angel Hair Pasta

It’s always great to find things in your pantry in which you can pull together a dinner in a quick and easy way. The dinner I made last night was just that type of dinner. I had everything I needed, but the chicken (thawed, at least) so when I was at Trader Joe’s grabbing a…

Nut Crumb Chicken

A dear friend of mine had given me a package of Nut Crumbs as a hostess gift a couple weeks ago. I’ve been looking forward to trying these, so made chicken using them last night. They were so good!

Sicilian Seasoned and Prosciutto Wrapped, Breaded Chicken Breasts

This may just be my favorite chicken recipe that I’ve come up with! I actually came up with this recipe while chatting with my sister on the phone. We were chatting and laughing, having a great time. I love the phone calls with my sister! It seems they mostly happen on a Sunday late afternoon,…

Pesto Chicken

This pesto had such great color. It looked so fresh, which also made it look so healthy to me as well. I made a batch of pesto to pour over chicken for tonight’s dinner. I made my pesto using 3-1/2 cups of fresh basil, 1 entire head of garlic, 3/4 cup of walnuts, grated parmesan,…

Chicken Thighs in a Balsamic Mustard Sage Marinade

Last night’s dinner reminded me of a simple, comfort supper that is great for any weeknight, but also works for impressing your guests. I simply sprinkled kosher salt and pepper on chicken thighs and poured over a mixture of olive oil, dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, and dried sage. I let the chicken sit…

Salsa Verde Chicken

As I was grocery shopping the other day, I noticed Trader Joe’s had a new salad I hadn’t seen before … southwest chopped salad. It is a salad kit, like others they offer.  In it you will find green cabbage, romaine, cotija cheese, roasted pepitas, tortilla strips, green onion, cilantro and spicy avocado dressing.  This…
