Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Let’s face it. It will never be really be soup weather where I live, so I have to get my fill of warm, comforting soups when I’m wearing T-shirts and pretending it’s cold. I’ve previously made a more gourmet version of buffalo chicken soup with blue cheese biscuits and all, but I wanted a more everyday…

Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

You’d never know there was pumpkin in these enchiladas except for the slightly orange color of the sauce. The pumpkin puree replaces the traditional tomato base and just tastes of Tex-Mex goodness when mixed with jalapeños, garlic, and all of the works. The sauce is made in the blender and then you just pour it…

Zucchini Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers with Hatch Chile Ranch Dressing

Zucchini Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers with Hatch Chile Ranch Dressing

Perfect for football season, these baked zucchini crusted buffalo chicken fingers are a good way to get a little extra veggies in without realizing you are actually eating vegetables. You can’t taste the zucchini beneath a healthy layer of Frank’s hot sauce. Dustin commented that there couldn’t be very much zucchini in there, but there…

Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Sorry for a summery recipe when we are in the heart of September, but when peaches were in the peak of their season several weeks ago, I really wanted to make a version of Pioneer Woman’s Whiskey Peach BBQ chicken using actual peaches instead of peach preserves. Obviously fresh peaches aren’t in season all year round,…

Butter Chicken Lasagna

Butter Chicken Lasagna

The idea of an Indian lasagna jumped into my head, so I googled butter chicken lasagna and stumbled across this recipe from the Canadian Food Network. In the end it took me a lot longer to make than I originally anticipated, but it was a labor of love to create a more elaborate meal for…

Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

We had some of the best fried chicken—truffle honey laced fried chicken with a most delicious slaw—  I’ve ever tasted at Manhattan Beach Post for brunch a few weeks ago. I really wanted to try to recreate it– I think it would be the perfect fried chicken for chicken and waffles since it has a…

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

There are a lot of B’s in that title, but everything is so important to the flavors of the dish that I just couldn’t bear to leave one out! I’ve seriously been in a creative run lately when it comes to new dinner idea. Browsing foodgawker, I stumbled upon an impressive looking chicken burger that…

Cajun Beer Can Chicken + Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Cajun Beer Can Chicken + Avocado Mashed Potatoes

We bought an entire case of Coors Light just so we could make this beer can chicken. The chicken itself was a fancy Jidori chicken, then we cooked it with Coors Light…I had to laugh at this disparity in the quality of ingredients. We really wanted to grill our chicken, but there was no way…

Cool Ranch Doritos Chicken Fingers

Cool Ranch Doritos Chicken Fingers

This isn’t really a new meal (see our Doritos crusted chicken fingers from before), but this time around we used Cool Ranch Doritos instead of the Nacho Cheese version. They were just as delicious as we remembered, and by far some of the best baked chicken we’ve ever tasted. This time we also soaked our…

Seared Chicken + Red Wine Cherry Sauce + Thyme

Seared Chicken + Red Wine Cherry Sauce + Thyme

Now that it is cherry season, it would be a good time to try this seared chicken covered in red wine cherry sauce. Some friends cooked us dinner once and combined cherries with thyme, a flavor combination I wouldn’t have thought of on my own, but it really stuck with me. We decided to experiment…
