Chicken and Green Bean Stir Fry

I’m here to share a relatively simple recipe that I’ve been making many iterations of recently. To start, you could change the meat and/or vegetable. You could also change the ingredients and amounts…this is a working recipe you can follow strictly, but it is best if you experiment. Sometimes I need more or less of an ingredient (or cooking time) depending on how everything is cooking.

Chicken Marsala

If you had asked me for my chicken marsala recipe, I would have said, well, I add a little of this and a little of that….just check my blog. It turns out, I didn’t have a recipe on here for it. And my recipe is still “add a little of this and a little of that”. This most recent time I made it, I made sure to take pictures so I could write about it…and I discovered that Shiraz works just as well as Marsala! So, Chicken Shiraz? Sounds fancier, but no difference.

Chicken with Olives, Garlic, and Bell Pepper with Pasta

This was a recipe I made up as I went. I had some leftovers from our Halloween party that needed to get used (yes, I am still blogging about posts from the end of October/early November…sorry?). We had olives and red bell pepper for the black bean/hummus dip I made. I haven’t actually shared that recipe on here, either, although I have now mentioned it a couple times. I also had some leftover pasta but not enough extra sauce, so this was a way to throw it all together.

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Sandwich

Sometimes I get really tired of slow cooker meals. They can be easy but not always full of flavor. This one manages to still pack flavor while being relatively simple with the ingredients. I also like that it uses boneless and skinless chicken thighs, which aren’t often called for with slow cooker recipes.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Grilled Indian Chicken

Whenever I mention making some Indian food, K almost always wants chicken with some sort of sauce. And up to now, it was always roasting it in the oven and then either marinating the chicken with a yogurt sauce (and serving extra sauce on the side) or making a tomato/cream sauce. Now, I have a new method I can use when the weather is cooperating: the grill!

Chicken Ghee Skillet Roast

This was a recipe I had to make. I had all of the ingredients…I did end up buying some extra chicken to make a larger batch for leftovers, and I needed a lime, but that was minor. I love recipes where I can just use my pantry. Don’t you?

Spanish Braised Chicken with Sherry and Saffron

I know, I know, here I am with another braised chicken recipe. Well, whatever, it seems to be the thing to do these days. At least in my world. Or in my house. I’m not saying you have to do it, but here is another option to tempt you. This one seems kind of weird, but I was able to convince K when he knew egg would be in the sauce and on top. That sounds like a win for him.  I’d rate this dish as middling-fussy. You have to do a little stove cooking and then wait for a bit with it in the oven, and then finish with a sauce. But, you could read a book during the oven time, browse the internet, play a video game…I don’t know what you people without kids do with your free time. I don’t remember free time. Aaaaannnnyyyway, if you have made braised chicken before and want to try something different, or just were waiting for a different recipe to make you start braising chicken, here you go.
