Apple Gouda Chicken Sausage and Corn Risotto

Apple Gouda Chicken Sausage and Corn Risotto

We almost always have AmyLu Apple and Gouda Chicken Sausages in our fridge or freezer from Costco.  They are so good…gluten free, few ingredients, nitrate-free, easy to prepare (i.e. fully cooked), and did I mention that they have gouda in them?  Sold.  They come in […]

Gluten-free Chicken Avocado Spinach Burgers

I found myself with spinach and avocado in the fridge, and some ground chicken in the freezer and remembered seeing a pin about chicken and avocado burgers, so I pulled the chicken to thaw overnight.  This recipe is really customizable because the burgers take on […]

Baked Chicken Meatballs (non-gf)

Baked Chicken Meatballs (non-gf)

Friends of ours had a baby in June and we hadn’t been to see them yet, so we signed up for the “meal registry” Mealbaby, that their friend set up for them.  Basically, you sign up to bring a meal after a new baby, (or […]

Chicken Enchiladas with Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Chicken Enchiladas with Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Casserole recipes never look very appealing for photos….. The other night we had some extra chicken breasts in the fridge that needed used up, along with an extra pack of corn tortillas, so enchiladas was a no-brainer (plus it wasn’t very hot outside, so it […]

I got a big craving for chicken salad with dill seasoning a couple of weeks ago.  Kelley made it a couple of times a few years back and I started making it, but then I just forgot about it.  When I did my pantry organization, […]

I have no idea how I came to the decision to make Shepherd’s Pie.  I don’t know if I have ever made it before, and I don’t think of it as something that sounds amazing.  I do know that when I made the decision, I […]

Slow Cooker Spicy Asian Chicken

Slow Cooker Spicy Asian Chicken

We love spicy Asian food around here, so this Spicy Asian Chicken was a hit with both of us.  I love that you can throw this in a crockpot to cook all day long and then finish it up 10 minutes before you eat.  I […]

Gluten Free Chipotle Meatloaf

Gluten Free Chipotle Meatloaf

I had it in my head that we’d have lentil meatballs, pasta, and Private Selection Arrabbiata Sauce that I got for free as a part of my Private Selection BzzCampaign.  I asked Lo to pull the meatballs out of our chest freezer this morning, but […]

Ginger Chicken Soup for Chilly Weather

Ginger Chicken Soup for Chilly Weather
