Sriracha Served Glazed

If you’re like us, Sriracha has been a staple in your fridge for a while. It’s even showing up on the menu at Subway and working its way into more and more recipes — not that we’re complaining! This recipe may have already had us at the magic word (hint: it’s “Sriracha”), but the combination of honey and lime has us keeping this glaze on regular rotation in the kitchen. It calls for chicken, but you could easily use it on any variety of meats you may have already in [... more]

Fried Chicken, Perfected

If there’s one food that’s hard to disagree on, it’s fried chicken. Okay — you have to be talking with someone who eats meat and isn’t on some fad diet that restricts them from eating things that are downright delicious — but if they meet those two criteria, chances are you both like fried chicken. So, should you find yourself in the company of another fan of chicken o’ the fried kind, try this version: Brined and Battered Buttermilk Fried Chicken. There are a few different parts to this recipe that [... more]

A Go-To Grill Recipe

Grilling out is one of the benefits of warm weather. This summer, branch out from your typical burgers and hotdogs and try these delicious Honey-Lime Chicken Skewers. The homemade and oh-so-easy marinade takes less than five minutes to make, but it packs a whole lot of flavor. Fresh-squeezed lime juice and honey add freshness, while Siracha sauce, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic spice things up a bit. Once the chicken breasts have marinated at least one hour, place the skewers on the grill for six to [... more]

Nuts About This Chicken Salad

A recipe packed with flavor, Nut and Berry Chicken Salad With Strawberry Poppy Seed Dressing makes great use of all of the fresh produce available this summer. The juicy strawberries and blueberries provide sweetness, while the walnuts and goat cheese add texture and piquant flavor into the mix. It wouldn’t be a chicken salad without some grilled chicken breast, but this recipe’s author also includes a little pancetta for subtle saltiness. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, wait until you hear about the dressing. A tasty blend [... more]

Soup’s Still On

While daytime temperatures continue to warm up for good, cooler nights will linger a little while longer. That means you have a few more chances to enjoy creamy, soul-warming soups. This flavor-filled tortilla one takes no time to prepare! Slow-cooked in a Crockpot (if you don’t have one, you should invest in one ASAP), Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup works perfectly for a large gathering—or just your hungry family. If you like your dishes with a lot of heat, leave the jalapeño seeds in; if not, remove the [... more]

Crispy Goodness

I prefer kettle-cooked potato chips because they are the crunchiest chips known to mankind. So when I saw them listed as a main ingredient in this recipe for Crispy Potato Chip Chicken Strips, I was sold! Even more exciting, you can change the taste simply by choosing a different flavored chip. Just walk the snack aisle for inspiration and pick from the many flavors available: Salt & Vinegar, Jalapeño, Sour Cream and Onion, Cheddar Beer, Maple Bacon, Spicy Thai, Honey Dijon, Sriracha, and many more.

Sunday Funday

Once upon a time, Sunday dinners meant roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, and a vegetable. Before we left for church, we’d set the table and pre-set the oven to cook the roast the necessary time. As we arrived home, we were met by the most delightful aromas, killing any will power we might have summoned. You get that same result with Crock Pot Pulled Chicken: tender, juicy meat that smells heavenly and tastes divine. Pile the tasty chicken on a freshly baked bun and slather on [... more]

Party On

No game-day celebration would be complete without delicious food and drinks. Unfortunately, these traditionally unhealthy foods come loaded with fat and calories, kind of ironic considering we’re cheering on health-conscious athletes. Party favorite Buffalo chicken wings would typically have guests packing on pounds. That is, until now. This lighter version, Skinny Buffalo Chicken Sliders, contains all the great flavors you love without all the fat from deep-frying. Shredded rotisserie chicken tossed with Greek yogurt, hot sauce, and garlic powder is topped off with blue cheese, celery, and [... more]

Ooey Gooey Goodness

I walked into our local bakery last week and inhaled the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread. I had to reel in my senses; otherwise, I would have stood there frozen like a fool incapacitated by the glorious smells of baked goodies. Spying the crusty, golden loaves coming out of the oven, I remembered this recipe I had come across a few weeks earlier. Buffalo Chicken French Bread features a baguette coated with ranch dressing, chicken drenched in a spicy buffalo sauce, and gorgonzola cheese dripping down [... more]
