Very Basic Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

THE BEST shredded Mexican chicken in the slow cooker. Good in tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, burritos, or in salads! Chicken breasts and homemade Mexican seasoning cook in the crock pot with green chiles for an easy Mexican chicken.

I am weirdly into Mondays. They seem like the day to set the tone for the rest of the week, and one of the most important Monday predictors of how my week will go is: what is the food situation in the fridge looking like? A typical Monday in my life involves crockpotting. This is […]

Roasted Strawberry Chicken

Roasted Strawberry Chicken | An easy, no-marinade chicken that’s perfect for weeknights! This recipe uses strawberry jam for a sweet strawberry flavor. Chicken breasts bake in a strawberry-balsamic sauce that glazes onto the chicken as it cooks.

We were in the throws of packing up our apartment when I got the sudden and insatiable urge to know what would happen if chicken were to be baked in strawberry jam. Perfect, I thought, I’ll get rid of a partially-used jar of strawberry preserves AND make a delicious dinner. I am the best packer […]

One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta

One pot pastas became all the rage a few summers ago after this recipe came out, and I have to say that I am INTO it. One of my least favorite kitchen tasks is draining pasta. It’s a heavy pot that’s awkward to carry and is also full of boiling water. The likelihood of a […]

Jerk Chicken Rice Bowl

I get food cravings. The mood will strike and I won’t want to do anything until I eat a jalapeño chip or a clementine or drink a chocolate milkshake. It’s like I’m Stanley from The Office and every day of my life is Pretzel Day. Except instead of pretzels it’s just whatever I’m in the mood […]

Chicken Bog - One Dish Chicken and Rice

This is a comfort food meal that is also a one-dish dinner, so is a WIN on all counts in my book. If the name of this recipe has you wondering, “since when can you eat a bog?”, I really don’t know. Southern Living says this is called a bog. And bog feels mysteriously Southern […]

One-Pan Asian Noodles

Upon first forkful of these noodles, Husband declared, “these taste like takeout!” Hedging any possible offense by comparing my home cooking to that of a takeout-style joint, he quickly added, “and I mean that as a compliment!” But no disclaimer needed, Husband. Tasting like takeout is the gold standard of homemade Asian food to me. […]

Kale Salad with Bacon Croutons

Lemon Kale Salad with Homemade Bacon Croutons

My husband is unafraid to share that he does not like kale. In fact, he wants you to know that he does not like kale. The more popular it becomes, the more adamant he is: Kale has no place on his plate. So when I told him mid-dinner prep that we would be having kale […]

Baked Chicken Shawarma

Isn’t it funny how quickly things can become comfort food? Before living in Michigan, my Ohio-grown tastebuds had never experienced chicken shawarma. Early on in Husband’s law school years, we discovered a Mediterranean restaurant that was legit cheaper than fast food, just as fast as fast food, and (the best part!) en route home from […]
