Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Thighs

honey mustard chicken thighs 010

Warning: The chicken thighs are cooked in a pan in the oven. Be careful when taking the pan out, so you don't burn yourself like I did! I used an oven mit first, but when I went to take a picture of it, I forgot the oven mit. Ouch that kind of hurt somewhat, but only for a couple of seconds. Hot pan, hot pan! These chicken thighs are flavored with every persons favorite dippin sauce: honey mustard, and then topped with bacon. No need to dip the chicken in any sauce here. Unless you can find a ...

Have you ever cooked just a bunch of chicken in a crock pot before? If you haven't done that yet, you should do it one time.

Orange Balsamic Chicken Kabobs

Orange Basalmic Glazed Chicken Kabobs 018

Grilling season is almost done with. *Sigh   Although we grill here when it's -25 degrees outside. How bout you? ;)   I was browsing my pinterest boards and saw this recipe for orange basalmic glazed chicken, and then I thought it would be really fun to make chicken kabobs. It's fun to put food on a stick. Food is better on a stick. Kabobs take no time to make on the grill. For chicken all it takes is 4 flips, with 2 two minutes per side. The chicken comes out really moist.  So, I used ...

Buffalo Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Ranch Pizza 002

This pizza is all my favorite ingredients combined into one. Buffalo chicken + bacon + ranch + and pizza!  I didn't want to use buffalo wing sauce as the pizza sauce, so I used ranch dressing instead.  What a good idea that was, it made the perfect sauce. Buffalo wing sauce would have been way too spicy for me. I like a little heat, but not that much. I'm not really sure where my love for buffalo chicken anything started. It could be all those nights spent at Buffalo Wild Wings watching h ...

Baked Chicken Parmesan

chicken parmesan 008

Baked Chicken Parmesan is a lighter version of the classic. I skip out on the noodles to avoid all those extra carbs and not use a ton of marinara sauce on top. Instead of frying the chicken you bake it in the oven.  Have a side of steamed broccoli or green beans as a side. I am a fan of any type of  breaded chicken for dinner now. Now that I know how to get the bread crumbs to stick. I've tried other recipes before and the bread crumbs just wouldn't stick to the chicken. It also helps to use ...

Ina Garten’s Perfect Roast Chicken

roast chicken and potatoes 027

  Ina Garten's Perfect Roast chicken is so moist and flavorful. It's seasoned with some fresh lemon, thyme, and garlic.  I never would have thought that just stuffing some aromatics like this inside a chicken would make a chicken taste so good. I was wondering how these three ingredients would even begin to flavor the chicken if they're just inside the cavity, but I could taste hints of lemon and thyme in there.  The only thing I wish I would have had was the head of garlic. I thought about ru ...

Baked Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings (in this case drumsticks) is gonna be your favorite new wing! The Sriracha gave the wings a spicy flavor and the honey made it sweet. I just love the combination of sweet and spicy. I've got to tell ya, I've never really made buffalo wings at home before. I always loved the buffalo wings at Buffalo Wild Wings and going there to watch sports. Mostly hockey games. Now since I know the method of creating these, I can come up with my own flavor combinations! It has ...

Crispy Chicken with No-stir Lemon Risotto

risottochicken 013

  I picked up a new magazine recently called Better Homes and Gardens. Lots of yummy recipes, the one on the front cover really caught my interest. No-stir lemon risotto was the 4 words that dragged me in. C'mon let's face it people. Risotto is HARD to make sometimes and this one came out perfect with no troubles at all. Except for the fact that some of the lemon broth had boiled over the pot and kind of stained my oven but cleaning can fix that. I just don't really like it when that ...
