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!

Chicken Noodle Soup + Shirley J Biscuits

I love making soups but unfortunately the look on my husbands face when he comes home from work and sees soup on the table doesn’t correspond to my love for soups. So from February to October soups are not put into the weekly menu. But right when fall hits the soup recipe brainstorming begins! And that is when I start making soups once a week. I still get the same look on my husbands face every time and that is why I have starting making some type of homemade bread that day too! I have LOVED making breads recently! And …

Crockpot Pork Chops

Peanut Butter Chicken Pad Thai

When I was collaborating ideas of peanut butter recipes to post a peanut butter pad thai was one of the first things. I was trying to think of something different then just peanut butter desserts. With almost 2 million views, my sweet and sour chicken has been the top viewed recipe on my blog. So I decided to make the chicken the same as that chicken, but just add the peanut butter sauce instead of the sweet and sour sauce. I know most pad thai recipes do not have big chunks of chicken in them, but this one does. I will admit …

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 …
