Chicken Tacos

It’s been a while since I’ve done a new taco recipe (see Ground Turkey Tacos and Taco Pie for other ideas), and I was looking for a way to use up some extra chicken breast, and this worked out because I used ingredients that I already had on hand. Instead of making hard tacos with the tortillas though, I…

Chicken a la King

This meal got added to the menu because my husband requested it, so now I make it every few weeks. It’s pretty easy to make and you get a healthy dose of vegetables with it so I don’t have to think about making an extra side of veggies. When you google “chicken a la king,”…

Baked Sesame Chicken

Following up on the next Chinese food recipe (see Spicy Sichuan Noodles), I recently found a recipe that is a healthier version of Sesame Chicken. Don’t judge me – I know that Sesame Chicken isn’t “real” Chinese food and is more like “American Chinese food,” but I love it and order it at restaurants. Often. Having…

I had already defrosted the chicken from the freezer…

We love Thai food, so wanted to try out their Thai Peanut Chicken recipe. I didn’t notice until I was preparing the curry peanut sauce that the recipe doesn’t actually include any vegetables, so…

Chicken Teriyaki

I’ve seen a ton of different ways to make teriyaki sauce, some far more complicated than others and with ingredients that I’ll probably never use again. So instead, I decided to wing it and make my own simple sauce. Chicken Teriyaki First, I made the sauce by adding in soy sauce, water, brown sugar, chopped…

Chicken Enchiladas

It’s been a long time since I’ve made enchiladas (I’m talking like years), but everyone around me kept talking about enchiladas and tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo last week, so I decided I wanted to make enchiladas, but also wanted to do something that wasn’t entirely filled with and smothered with cheese (even though…
