• Coq Au Vin


    Slow Cooker Coq au Vin

    As we get closer to fall, you may be doing more slow cooker cooking. Last winter I made this slow cooker coq au vin recipe I found on the Williams Sonoma website and saved it to share for this fall. I followed the Williams Sonoma recipe pretty closely the only changes I made were that I added potatoes and when I took photos of this I didn’t have kitchen twine so I just fished out the bay leaf, thyme sprigs, parsley sprigs, and leek at the end. For this recipe you’ll need: Pinot Noir fresh flat leaf parsley sprigs fresh thyme sprigs bay leaf leek bacon chicken legs salt &…

  • Salsa Fresca Chicken


    Salsa Fresca Chicken

    I hope you’re all having a good weekend so far! Today I’m sharing a recipe for Salsa Fresca Chicken. I found the recipe on Pinterest last year and mostly followed it. I made my own pico de gallo consisting of: red onion, lime juice, roma tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeno. For the recipe you’ll need: boneless, skinless chicken breast cumin salt black pepper garlic powder pico de gallo shredded monterey jack cheese The recipe also has you sprinkling fresh cilantro on top, but if you’ve been following me on here for a while you know I can’t stand cilantro so I left that out. The recipe is so easy, but does…

  • Thai Peanut Sauce Chicken


    Chicken with Thai Peanut Sauce

    I love peanut sauce, do you? Luckily, I’m not allergic to nuts, because I love all the peanut components to Thai food. Today, I’m sharing an easy chicken recipe with a thai peanut sauce. The original recipe has the chicken on skewers, but I didn’t put mine on skewers. The original recipe also has the sauce as a dipping sauce and I drizzled the sauce on top of my chicken just to keep things easier especially since I wasn’t skewering them. Other than the skewers, the only other thing I changed from the original recipe is that I used ground ginger instead of fresh because when I was making this…

  • Chicken Stuffing Bake


    Chicken Stuffing Bake

    Happy Saturday! I’m back with another recipe post and I have to preface this by saying this chicken stuffing bake is not the prettiest, but it does taste good! I found this recipe through Pinterest and I followed the recipe except I halved it. Even after halving the recipe, the dish came out more liquid-y/runny than the photos of the original recipe. I read a few comments that said it came out runny, but those people had used homemade cream of chicken soup and I used canned so I thought I’d be okay. Nope. It was still runny when I made it so it’s not the prettiest dish, but as…

  • Slow Cooker Cheesy Salsa Chicken


    Slow Cooker Cheesy Salsa Chicken

    I love slow cooker recipes, but they can be hit or miss. But when they’re good, they’re good. This Cheesy Salsa Chicken is an example of a really good one. It was a Pinterest find a few years ago and I’ve made it multiple times so trust me when I saw it is extremely easy and extremely delicious! The pin is still on Pinterest, but the recipe seems to be gone from the website so I can’t link to it, unfortunately. However, I know the steps for the recipe and the ingredients are still on Pinterest so I can still share all the details with you. For this recipe you’ll need:…

  • One-Pot Paprika Chicken


    One-Pot Paprika Chicken

    This is going to be a super short post, in terms of actual writing, today because I can’t find the recipe I used for this One-Pot Paprika Chicken! I didn’t save the website like I usually do and I can’t find it on my Pinterest board. I also didn’t have time to go searching for it, but I didn’t want my photos of this delicious meal to go to waste. So my food post today will just have to be photos for you to follow along. It’s annoying that I can’t find the exact recipe, but you can tell I coated the chicken in paprika and I’m sure other spices…

  • The Elevated Cook - Chicken Hook


    Chicken Hook

    At my new townhouse I’m spending a lot of time cooking, but one thing I haven’t made – nor do I plan to – is a whole chicken. Although roast chicken is one of my favorite foods, there’s just no way I could eat a whole chicken so I would never make one for myself. But, like I said roast chicken is one of my favorites, and so when The Elevated Cook sent me their Chicken Hook I knew I had to bring it over to my parents’ house so that we could enjoy some chicken together. The Chicken hook is made of top-grade stainless steel and due to it’s suspension…

  • Bruschetta Chicken


    Bruschetta Chicken

    I love bruschetta and I love when Italian restaurants give bruschetta out along with the bread basket. So good! As much as I love classic bruschetta, bruschetta chicken is delicious too. Coincidentally, I had been looking at this bruschetta chicken recipe (here) when I was sent two generous sized wedges of parmigiano reggiano and this recipe calls for freshly shaved parmigiano reggiano. I followed the above recipe as its written. I made my own balsamic glaze using the directions in the recipe and the chicken turned out so good! Click on the link above for the exact recipe and scroll through my photos below for the step-by-step process! First, I…
