    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

    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…

    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

    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…

    Tiny House Cooking Cookbook:Chicken Cacciatore

    Have you seen those tiny houses that are becoming increasingly popular? HGTV has series on tiny houses too. I think they look really cool and cute, but I could never live in one. I am not a minimalist at all and could never survive in one! A few weeks ago I was gifted a copy of the Tiny House Cooking cookbook. You don’t have to live in a tiny house to use these recipes obviously, but they’re so great because all the recipes use as few cooking utensils and vessels as possible. I believe all the recipes are for 2 people as well so it’s great for if you’re cooking for…

    Italian Chicken – 2 Ways

    I’ve got 3 days of work left to the school year and the stress levels are high with trying to get everything done and packed up. Tonight is graduation for the seniors and with that comes more anxiety as I’m set to host once again this year. Once I’m there and get started with the show I’m usually fine but just the thought of it (mainly speaking into the microphone) always makes me nervous! I’ll be sharing my graduation outfit on here next week! In the meantime, I’ve got a quick food post for you today. Making chicken by marinating it in Italian dressing is nothing new at all. Many…

    1-Pot Chicken, Olives, & Potatoes

    I really enjoy 1-pot meals because it’s so convenient to create a whole meal using 1 main pot. This 1-Pot Chicken with Olives & Potatoes is a recipe from the Cooking Channel by Tia Mowry. I followed the recipe with no adjustments so I’ll just be posting pictures and not the whole recipe so if you want to check out the recipe then click here! Chicken, olives, and potatoes + yummy spices? You can’t go wrong! Let me know if you try this!

    Dorito Chicken Tenders

    I love to share food/recipes for things I’ve been making for a long time as well as things that are first times for me. Usually I post things that turned out well or at least well enough for a first time. Today I’m sharing Dorito Chicken Tenders which I found multiple posts for on Pinterest. Unfortunately, this was one of those recipes that I’m not sure I’ll make again. It’s not that it tasted bad – it was completely edible and I did eat it. But it didn’t wow me although perhaps if I make it again I would jazz it up some more. In any case, I thought about skipping…

    Spinach & Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

    How’s everyone’s week going so far? I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! I’m trying to savor this last 1+ week before I go back to work. I have a food post for you all today and I filmed it as well for a short less than 2 minute video! Of course, I also have some pictures for you to walk you through this easy dish. I diced some tomatoes, cut the spinach into smaller pieces, and cooked and cut up the mushrooms ahead of time. Put the ingredients inside the chicken breasts and be careful not to overstuff them because then it will be hard to close them up. Dust…

    Rustic Chicken

    Before I get into summer food posts, which will consist of quicker, lightweight, and/or refreshing foods, I have one last hearty food post for you (at least for a little while). This Rustic Chicken is not new to me and it’s inspired from something I saw on the Food Network years ago but I can’t remember now who’s recipe it is! First, I brown the chicken thighs and boil some potatoes. Then, I put the chicken, potatoes that I either half or quarter depending on the size, grape tomatoes, oil, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a roasting pan. Cook in the oven for about 40 mins-1 hour at 375…
