I have always wanted to make stuffed bell peppers, and finally I got around to it! This dish was super easy and we had enough leftovers to make tacos the next day!
Serves 6-8 people
*We just used 2 whole bell peppers (2 halves for each of us) and like I said, we had a ton of the meat mixture leftover, but it makes great tacos!! Or just eat it plain! :)
What you need:
**We were very adventurous with our seasonings and actually just chose random seasonings from our pantry! Almost anything would work!
What to do:
Chipotle is probably one of my favorite "fast food" places. Actually, I really don't consider that to be fast food. It's super healthy (if you opt the sour cream, guacamole, and cheese!) and it basically a sit down restaurant. It can get expensive ordering food all the time, and this is a simple copy-cat dish of their infamous Burrito Bowls!
Make rice (follow box instructions). Heat black beans on stove top until hot. Saute bell peppers, onions, and broccoli in olive oil on hot skillet. While beans and veggies are cooking, chop up cooked chicken breast (make sure to season with cumin)!
Once the rice is finished, and the beans and veggies are cooked, mix the chicken and veggies in bowl with seasoned chicken.
To make the bowl--first add in cooked rice, then layer with black beans, and finally, the chicken and veggie mix! Season with salt and pepper, or more cumin for extra spice!
I wanted to make something special for my parents because I was celebrating our "two year anniversary living together"! I wanted something different than a typical chicken dish. This was a super good dish and so much flavor!!! I would definitely make it again and my parents absolutely loved it. I served it with a side of sautéed green beans and onions.
UM HELLO SPICY BUT DELICIOUS CHICKEN. So this dish is extremely easy to make. It definitely has a bite to it, but the avocado cream sauce really helps tame it! I was doing back flips over it, and my parents enjoyed it too!! Definitely making this again! Only takes about 25 minutes!
Per Serving (1 chicken breast, 1/8 cup of cream sauce):
Friday night, once again. Boyfriend and I cooking up a storm with a bottle of wine :) So this dish was a littleeee more work than my usual dishes, BUT extremely worth it and AMAZING. If you are looking for an "Asian" style dish, this is the perfect recipe for it! My boyfriend and I devoured this dish! Yum!
1/2 cup brown rice
1/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 egg white
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 small chicken breasts (12oz), cut into 2″ pieces
salt & pepper
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 green onions, chopped
2 cups broccoli florets
I made this dish on a Friday night after work with my boyfriend. Of course we were drinking wine while cooking, but this was a pretty easy dish! It says to marinate the chicken for a good 30 minutes, but we actually marinated it over night! It was infused with balsamic vinegar and had a very tangy taste since it marinated so long, but we both like balsamic vinegar, so if you do too, then I suggest marinating over night or at least a few hours. I also would have added more honey, it calls for 3tbs but next time I might put in another one because it could have been a little sweeter to tame down the vinegar. Overall though, very flavorful and I will definitely make this again!
We made some brown rice and broccoli and poured the extra sauce over the rice :)
I give this dish full credit to my sister, Christine. She made this dish for me for the first time tonight and it was SO GOOD. The sauce....oh my...I could eat it by the spoonful! She's made this dish numerous times before, and always raved about it, but I needed to try it for myself to see what all the fuss was about. And boy was I missing out! The chicken literally just fell off the bone and the juice/sauce was so sweet! We served it with white rice and broccoli, and I highly suggest pouring the sauce over the rice! (Extremely kid friendly too! One of my nieces had seconds!)
1. Mix all ingredients, except chicken, in a bowl.
2. Place chicken pieces in a baking pan. Sprinkle with pepper. No extra salt is needed.
3. Pour sauce over chicken and make sure it’s coated well.
4. Roast uncovered at 400 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes until chicken is done. Baste several times during cooking. This is the way the chicken will look when done.
My mom and I made this one night while my dad was gone for a meeting. It was Friday night, so we had some wine before and got caught up talking we almost forgot to cook dinner! Glad we did though! This dish was pretty good--I wouldn't say "amazing", it was missing something...couldn't figure out what though. I think next time maybe we would add more mustard and soy sauce on top of the chicken because it was a little dry. I would make it again though--just with more sauce :)
A simple but flavorful (and colorful!) chicken dish. It's Monday night, who really wants to cook after working all day...and Mondays are everyone's least favorite day anyways. But this easy 1 pot chicken dish makes cooking on Monday night a breeze! With only 1 pot, the mess is easy to clean up too! Now it's time to enjoy the rest of my Monday night watching The Bachelor!
Serves 4-6 people
We needed to add more salt and pepper because it was lacking some, so you may need to do the same! I'm slightly obsessed with garlic salt, so I pretty much drench my food in this! :)
Winner winner, Chicken Dinner...
I LOVE chicken. Pretty much any type of chicken, besides BBQ...for some reason it's my least favorite. Which is defeating to my dad when he cooks it in the summer. Oh well! And since I also like eating healthy, almost every one of these dishes is healthy and full of flavor!
