So, Soy Me!

I can’t imagine a refrigerator without a bottle of soy sauce in it.  For our household, it’s a staple, like salt, pepper or ketchup.  It is readily available, versatile and admittedly underused in my daily cooking repertoire; more often brought out only when we order Chinese take-out but don’t want to exhaust ourselves opening those

Panko Crusted Oven Fried Chicken

Five years ago, I posted a recipe,  Low Carb Oven Pan Fried Chicken and have made it a couple of times.  It’s a good recipe, but it is labor intensive with the use and clean-up of a cast iron skillet.  I stand by the recipe, but on this occasion, I was less concerned about my

My Chick-Fil-A Rip-Off Recipe

Chick-Fil-A has one of the best chicken sandwiches around.  At least that’s what I’ve heard.  Honestly, I haven’t eaten one since they were just another food-court option in most large, big-city shopping malls.  Chick-Fil-A started as strictly a mall fast food retailer in the late 60’s and didn’t establish free-standing restaurants until the mid-80’s.  I

Potluck Chicken & Rice Casserole

This dish reminds me of those potluck suppers I used to have to go to as a kid.  There would invariably be a good twenty-percent of the total available casseroles dedicated to just chicken and rice, along with chicken-noodle, tuna-noodle, lasagna and green bean casserole.  The great thing about this dish is that there can

Two Recipes with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Marinated Artichoke Hearts

My Number One Fan deserves all the credit for these two outstanding recipes.  She did them just a couple of weeks apart, which fascinated me.  To be able to take two really good ingredients and combine them in different ways and with different meats was just brilliant!  And delicious! In this post, you will get

Pan Seared Paprika Chicken Thighs with Sour Cream Gravy

You will need a cast iron skillet for this dish.  It’s inspiration came from the classic recipe, Chicken Paprikash, which is a method of browning and then stewing chicken with onions in a savory paprika sour cream sauce.  My version yields a very tender, crispy chicken with the savory sour cream gravy made after the

Prosciutto Prosciutto Chicken with Sweet Onion Compote

The title is not a redundant typo.  This delicious recipe is made with boned, skinless chicken thighs and prosciutto both in it and on it.  I made this on a lark simply because we happened to have two packages of prosciutto that were about to fall outside their expiration date.  One package was cubed prosciutto,

A Mexican Supper

Hungry for Mexican food, but trying to watch the calories, I decided to make an oven-fried chimichanga recipe that my Number One Fan and had previously prepared one evening.  This recipe came from the Easy Recipe website and was a re-post of the original found on the the Creme de la Crumb website.  Since we

Crock Pot Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Did you know that most, though not all, of the wild rice sold in this country comes from the state of Minnesota?  Wild rice is in fact their state grain and a major cash crop.  Wild rice isn’t rice, but an aquatic cereal grain and has a delicious nutty flavor.  Minnesotans are famous for their

Easy Breezy Roast Chicken and Rice

Nearly everyone has a roasted chicken recipe.  In fact, roasting a chicken in the oven is in itself so easy, you almost don’t need a recipe.  Any number of rubs, spices and seasonings and stuffing can make a roasted chicken flavorful.  About the only specific science to engage in chicken roasting is to neither over

Roasted Spicy Boneless Chicken Thighs with Crunchy Asian Slaw

I find it interesting how grocery stores catch up to the public’s ever changing cooking trends and appetites.  Prior to the the fat-free craze that came out in the early 1980’s, boneless, skinless chicken breasts were rarely seen.  But soon thereafter, all supermarkets stocked them in their meat departments’ display cases, and consumers would pay

Chicken Enchilada Soup

My Number One Fan found this recipe on the Yummly recipe site, but altered it considerably to her tastes.  This is a hearty dinner soup which worked very well with some corn chips for dipping and a side of guacamole. The original recipe called for this soup to be served over Spanish rice, which she
