Southwest Chicken Wraps

Southwest Chicken Wraps

It is getting hot fast here in Arizona! The thought of turning on my oven for a hour to cook dinner is haunting me. So I have decided to use the grill and crockpot as much as possible this summer. These chicken wraps were just that! I threw the ingredients in a crockpot and grabbed a Toufayan wholesome wheat wrap and had a easy and yummy dinner for my family! Southwest Chicken Wrap 1 small bag frozen corn 2 large frozen chicken breasts, boneless and skinless 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained 1 (16 oz) jar medium salsa shredded cheese Toufayan …

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip

I am the biggest buffalo fan you will ever meet! I love it on anything and everything! So when my mom made this dip for our “Oscar’s” party I had to have the recipe! She has made it a few times since then and it never disappoints! And bonus is that it is in a crockpot! I feel like when you are throwing a party or something it is always good to throw in a good yummy crockpot recipe that doesn’t take too much time when you are trying to get everything else done!

Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles

When I started to make dinner the other night this is not what I had in mind. It started as just panko crusted chicken parmesan with a side spinach salad. I decided to have a little fun with these chicken bundles and threw in some ham to make it a chicken cordon bleu type of dish and luckily I threw in some spinach for my kids to eat and this dish was perfect! I loved it this way but it would be good with some spaghetti sauce on top too!   Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles ingredients  4-6 small chicken breast, pounded …

Buffalo Chicken BLT Pitas

Buffalo Chicken BLT Pitas

I feel like a lot of my inspiration for my family, life, and blog posts come as I lay in bed at night. And that was exactly what happened with this fun and yummy meal plus a few others that will be featured in the following weeks! It had been one of those long days! I had deep cleaned my house and then when my kids were home from school we had some friends over to play for a few hours. My clean house was not so clean anymore, my dinner didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped, and …

Hawaiian Haystacks

Hawaiian Haystacks

If someone asked me to name a few meals that reminded me of my childhood this would be one of them! In fact my older brother, Stetson asks for this meal almost every year for his “birthday meal” that my mom cooks. And being that I am headed to Hawaii next week I only thought that it would be fitting to fix this meal before we head off! The best thing about this meal is that it is so versatile. This plate in the picture would be mine: layered cheese, tomatoes, pineapple, mandarin oranges, lots of coconut, slivered almonds,Chinese noodles, …

Easy Crowd Pleasin’ Chicken

Easy Crowd Pleasin’ Chicken

Some nights I want to put as little effort into the main dish as possible. This is one of my go-to easy chicken meals that everyone loves each and every time that I make it. Also bonus is that I usually have all these ingredients in my kitchen so it makes it even easy for those crazy busy days! It will feel a little sketchy when you are mixing the ingredients together because they are definitely some random ingredients but when you smell it cooking and then taste it you will make it over and over again! Easy Crowd Pleasin’ …

Ritz Chicken

  I don’t know what is better…having a meal that only has 4 ingredients or having a meal that my husband AND kids devoured! This meal is my little sister Sophie’s favorite meal and considering that growing up my mom cooked almost every single night and has published 2 cookbooks that says alot. This meal isn’t the healthiest, but its easy and yummy! Ritz Chicken 4 chicken breasts 1 sleeve Ritz crackers 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 Hidden Valley Ranch Packet Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large ziploc bag, crush Ritz crackers and then add dry mix packet. …

Honey Hot Chicken Strips

My favorite food has always been buffalo chicken wings. I could eat them almost everyday. I am a little picky on my buffalo sauce, but recently I have loved honey hot wings just as much as buffalo wings! Buffalo sauce is a little too spicy for my young family but not this honey hot sauce. It is the perfect happy medium for my family and I hope it is the same for yours! Honey Hot Chicken Strips 1 pkg frozen Tysons breaded chicken tenders 1 cup oil (for frying) sauce: 1/3 cup Franks Hot Sauce 1 1/3 cup brown sugar …

Orange Chicken

My most popular recipe on my blog is my Sweet and Sour Chicken so when Citizen Chef sent me this Pan Asian Orange sauce I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it! And boy it did not disappoint!!!   If your family loves orange chicken as much as mine you defiantly need to give this recipe a try! Plus for all you out there that live a “gluten free” lifestyle this recipe (along with a lot of other Citizen Chef sauces) is gluten free and with how good the sauces taste you will never know the difference!  Orange Chicken 3-5 chicken breasts …

Crockpot Southwest Chicken Nachos

Many people LOOOOVE using their crockpot. And I will admit that some days I love using my crockpot too. But for some reason almost every single crockpot recipe I try comes out looking not so good. Most of them taste good, but before I put the meal on my table I usually have to explain to my husband that this is “a crockpot meal”…they are easy and delicious but not always so pretty! I received a fun package from Citizen Chef with a few of their sauces. I have the perfect recipe for their Pan Asian Orange Sauce that I will be posting soon …
