    Skewers are a BBQ must… am I wrong? Time to Marinate! I am all about a good marinade when I am going to be grilling meat.   For this marinade it is really simple … just your favorite BBQ sauce & some spices.  Yep, that’s it… BBQ sauce & spices.   SO… which BBQ sauce you ask, well let’s talk about that. I love my Homemade BBQ sauce, but I am also all about Salt Lick BBQ sauce.  If you are from Texas you know what I am talking about for sure.  Salt Lick is this amazing BBQ joint in the Austin area and there sauce is just so, so…

  • Simple Roasted Chicken

    Roasted Chicken is truly one of my staples for lunch & dinner.  I mean think about it you can pair it with just about anything & it is done in no time…making it perfect for dinner this week. All about prep… In my opinion prepping the chicken is the most important part.  This is when you can ensure there will be tons of flavor, it will be juicy and get the golden skin.  So how do we do all of this… well, hold on…here we go. First is about the flavor.  I prefer a little lemon, some herbiness (not sure that is a real word) and some delicious seasoning.  So…

  • Skillet Sesame Chicken

    Sesame Chicken just makes me smile.  It is one of my most favorite take out options from my local Chinese restaurant.  What is yours? Better than Take Out The beauty of this sesame chicken is that you know exactly what is going in it and you can change it up as needed.  If you want it a little sweeter you can add in some brown sugar or more honey.  If you want it less, then leave it out.  Want it more acidic, throw in some lime.   So many options.   All in One Pan Once the chicken is marinated (which can be done is as little as 30 minutes)…

  • Air Fryer Chicken – Your Go-To Chicken

    Do you have an Air Fryer yet?  I mean everywhere I look I am seeing new recipes, new tips and tricks & people raving about their air fryer.  I resisted on getting one as I just didn’t want another small appliance taking up space, but then I started seeing everyone rave about the Air Fryer Instant Pot Lid.  And let me tell you, I am so glad I did. Better than store bought… The beauty of making a rotisserie style chicken at home is that you can season it just how you want.  You could use lemon pepper, or cajun, or just salt & pepper.  This time around I used…

  • Chicken & Gnocchi Bake

    I have a gnocchi confession… I am secretly obsessed with it!  I like it all sorts of ways, with all sorts of things but this bake is a perfect option for a yummy, comforting weeknight dinner.  A LITTLE CHICKEN TALK I have recently become a BIG, BIG fan of chicken thighs.  I am literally using them every week.  Sometimes I just roast them up and pair them with a quick salad and veggie and sometimes I use them in a  casserole… LIEK THIS ONE! I always sear them in a pan.  This not only adds some great color to the dish but also a TON of flavor.  I also make…

    Cheesy Garlic Chicken is your new go to weeknight dinner. I love this recipe even more because it only uses a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand…cannot get much easier than that. Cheesy Garlic LOVE This chicken dish is SOOOO good.  The chicken is nice and tender cooked under a delicious layer of a creamy garlic mixture that gives this dish a TON of flavor. The base of the garlic goodness is cream cheese.  I used a whole brick (8 oz) of cream cheese mixed with a little sour cream and minced garlic…lots of garlic.  The fresh garlic is what makes this chicken stand out.  It…
