Crispy Baked Chicken Tacos with Avocado Dip

All I can say about these crispy baked chicken tacos with avocado dipping sauce is…. YUUUUUMMMM. The chicken inside these has a ton of flavor and combined with red onion and Oaxaca cheese, it makes a perfect filling for crispy tacos. The chicken here is marinated in a mixture similar to carnitas marinade with aContinue reading “Crispy Baked Chicken Tacos with Avocado Dip”

BBQ Chicken Skewers and Ranch Salad

This meal was a last little taste of summer before we move on to colder weather, although here in NC we often have fake fall followed by more warm weather so I probably could fit this one in again before it gets too cold 🙂 This is a really simple supper, but the bbq chicken/ranchContinue reading “BBQ Chicken Skewers and Ranch Salad”

Roasted Chicken and Peppers with Rice, Crispy Feta and Lemon Vinaigrette

This dish sounds simple and it is, but it has a few special touches that make it SO good. I’m still thinking about this meal days after I made it, and I want to make it again.

Paprika Chicken with Olive Walnut Vinaigrette

These oven baked chicken seasoned chicken thighs are flavorful on their own, but topped with this unique vinaigrette they make a fantastic dinner.

Pesto Chicken Sandwiches

This sandwich is way more delicious than it has a right to be for how easy it was to make. My family loves pesto and I usually make a few batches of homemade pesto each summer. I used Wegman’s pesto here though to save time, and we loved it, so I may just buy thatContinue reading “Pesto Chicken Sandwiches”

Double Lemon Chicken

This recipe comes from Ottolenghi’s Test Kitchen and it is a take on Chinese takeout lemon chicken, but lightened up and with a much deeper flavored sauce, achieved using preserved lemon paste. I had bought a jar of the above preserved lemon paste to make these Preserved Lemon Chicken Skewers and I had a quiteContinue reading “Double Lemon Chicken”
