On Chicken Satay & Cucumber Salads

I finally had a weekend to myself and I thought, why don’t I go ahead and make something different? Lo and behold, I had been hankering for some chicken satay, and happened to have a FANTASTIC recipe for chicken satay by one of my go to’s: Recipe Tin Eats! I have been eyeing her recipe…

On Smitten’s Chicken Chili

I know it’s getting really warm out, BUT I was craving something hearty, so I went with a chicken chili from Smitten Kitchen! This one I made on the stove instead of the crock pot (I was too late in my day to go that route), and while it is VERY GOOD (naturally), I do…

Chicken Kebabs!

FUN FACT! Did you know, that to keep your broiler on for more consistent amounts of time, you should actually keep not only the broiler door (if your broiler flame is underneath the main area of the oven) but your actual oven door open/cracked to stimulate better airflow and a more consistent cook? This chick…

Tempura Chicken Nuggets

Or as we like to say in our household, Chimkin Nuggers…because that’s how dogs pronounce Chicken Nuggets…yes it’s a little weird, but also incredibly adorable, and if you need a smile during your long day of work, check out @doggosbeingdoggos2 and @doggosdoingthings on Instagram. I promise it will be 15-20 minutes of your life well…

Christmas Party 2018

It’s that time of year, when we pull out our most festive threads, put up & decorate the tree (which I think Frankie did a TERRIFIC job of doing this year), and deck our home in Christmas lights and ornaments in all the vases I almost never put any flowers into. Let’s just say, I am…

Cornish Game Hens: A Thanksgiving Upgrade

Or downgrade if you think about the sizes we’re talking about…MINI CHICKENS!! And oh so good! Yup, just spoiled the ending of this post – DE-LICIOUS! It even came complete with stuffing!!! I was originally just going to make the stuffing and leave it to the next day, but then I realized I was halfway…

Chicken & Chorizo Empanadas

Since moving and getting my adult side of life in sync again, I have been on a cooking BINGE! Also – meal planning, yeah, I’m a newfound convert! I know I tried meal planning before, but I did it wrong for my life, and by that I mean, I was meal planning so that I…

On Benihana at Home

How many of us have gone to Benihana’s (or some other hibachi restaurant)? *RAISES HANDS* And how many of us have fallen in love with that delicious, yellow yum yum sauce?! *RAISES BOTH HANDS* Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Back when I was still living in the States, Benihana’s was where I always wanted to go…

On A Better Chicken Sandwich

Since completing Whole30 with plans to go back to a Whole30-esque diet from here on out after the holidays until the wedding, one of our favorite fast food/late night meals was 100% ruined in the process: Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwiches. We’ve tried them a couple times since whole30—always late at night, and always when we…

On Healthy Eating [After Whole30]

If I haven’t already said it, and I’m pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it’s no longer appealing either. Not that that’s a bad thing, because it totally isn’t (better on our budget and better on our waistbands too), but…
