Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

This is another recipe of several that I'll be posting using the all-purpose homemade dough. My wonderful boyfriend gets the credit for this recipe and for putting up with me having to pause to write everything down and take a million photos! This recipe is great because you only need half of the dough that… Continue reading Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

We had a rainy, chilly day last weekend. I needed to go out and run some errands, but I also had a couple of house projects I needed to start. A friend asked me to bring tools over to help her hang some things in her house, so I did that too. I wanted something… Continue reading Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Lemon Pepper Chicken Kabobs

Grilling is a great way to end the week. I made these last night for dinner, and a friend came by for a late dinner and some cocktails and enjoyed some of these, too. The marinade is very simple, and if you don't have a lemon pepper seasoning, you could easily make it with lemon… Continue reading Lemon Pepper Chicken Kabobs

Grilled Chicken Caprese

I can't take all of the credit for the delicious chicken you see pictured. My boyfriend first made this for me a year ago. I was a little skeptical that I'd like it since I'm not a huge fan of balsamic vinegar, but I loved it. It had just enough balsamic to give it some… Continue reading Grilled Chicken Caprese

Chicken Fajitas

The boyfriend and I made chicken fajitas the other night. It was a nice easy dinner to make at the end of a work week. We used the rest of the chipotle lime crema from the mahi mahi tacos, too. We also had grilled corn on the cob on the side. I know the Italian… Continue reading Chicken Fajitas

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite things to make for a party. I have a few variations I make, including this one. I think this version I made is my favorite so far. I made it for the Super Bowl last weekend. My boyfriend isn't really into buffalo sauce, but he couldn't stop… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Dip

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday was a bit of a surprise snow day. It was supposed to snow a little bit, but not all day long. I took half the day off to work on some projects around the house, so I knew I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time making dinner at the end of the… Continue reading Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

One of my friends hosted a potluck brunch last weekend. This was originally supposed to be a filling for crescent roll spirals similar to these buffalo chicken spirals I made before. That turned out to be a disaster. I spread the filling onto the crescent roll dough, rolled it up. and it didn't hold up… Continue reading Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

Sheet Pan Chicken With Garlic Lemon Potatoes & Green Beans

I made this for dinner tonight (with leftovers for lunch tomorrow). This would be an easy weeknight meal - I'll definitely be making it again after work one night. I thought the green beans would be overcooked, but they came out perfectly. I feel like the amount of potatoes was a bit disproportionate to the… Continue reading Sheet Pan Chicken With Garlic Lemon Potatoes & Green Beans

Easy Chicken Tacos

I volunteer to cook at a local shelter with my church, and this month I'd signed up to prepare the main dish. It seems like every time I'm there cooking, I'm always rushing to finish on time, like I'm on an episode of a cooking show. I was able to prepare the recipe for 60… Continue reading Easy Chicken Tacos
