Zingy BBQ Chicken in the Slow Cooker or Oven

I love a 3 ingredient recipe.  Three ingredients means it’s got to be fast to fix.  This one has the bonus of being able to cook in the oven or slow cooker.  You can choose your appliance of choice based on time available.

This is a great way to use up small amounts of bbq sauce and salad dressing.  Get creative and experiment. Here’s how I did it this time: [Read more…]

Maple Apple Chicken in the Slow Cooker

Did you know you can convert all kinds of recipes to cook in the slow cooker?  This one started out as a skillet meal.  I didn’t have time to cook it right before dinner, but I did have a few minutes earlier in the day to put ingredients in the slow cooker.

The ingredients are a bit odd – Italian dressing and pancake syrup.  Not your usual combo, but it makes for a flavorful sauce with a hint of sweet.  Here’s what you’ll need to make it: [Read more…]

Angel Chicken

I’ve seen this recipe floating around the internet for a while now.  A friend even gave me a copy written in handwriting on a recipe card a few months ago.  I’d put off trying it though, because it calls for Cambell’s Golden Mushroom Soup, which I can’t seem to find.  Finally, I decided that I could substitute.  I’m glad I did.  This is yummy, creamy and satisfying.  And for a bonus, it’s a crockpot recipe.

Grilled Chicken with Soy Marinade

This is a simple way to dress up grilled chicken. Ingredients – equal parts soy sauce, sugar and Italian dressing. I used about 1/2 cup each.

Mix up the marinade ingredients and pour it over boneless chicken breasts. I put the chicken in a ziplock bag. You could marinate the chicken the night before you plan to cook them, or the morning before your dinner or if you’re like me, about 30 minutes before they hit the grill. Just be sure to put them in the fridge while they’re waiting for grill time.

Yes, the chicken breast in the middle is a little pale. My grill doesn’t cook even, but it does cook.

That’s it! Easy and fast. Leftovers pack up the next day as part of a salad, wrapped in a tortilla with lettuce, on a roll for a sandwich etc. I had a salad at Chic-fil-A the other day that would be easy to create at home with this chicken. (I know this blog is about eating at home, but that doesn’t mean you can never eat out!) The Chic-fil-A salad had grilled chicken, lettuce, apples, grapes, mandarin oranges, cran-raisins and a berry vinaigrette dressing. Yum! I may have to make that for dinner sometime soon!
