Chicken Paella Recipe

26 Jul

Chicken Paella is a Spanish dish that is full or flavor, and made easy by using a rotisserie chicken.

Chicken Paella is one of those great all-in-one dishes.  The traditional version of this Spanish dish can take awhile to make, but The Hungry Wife Chicken Paella recipe cuts down on time by using a store bought rotisserie chicken.  I love finding recipes that use a rotisserie chicken, they are perfect for weeknight meals, or when you are cooking for a crowd.  If you wish, you may add in shrimp and/or mussels toward the end of cooking for a true Spanish flare.

Chicken Vesuvio

1 May

Chicken Vesuvio is a traditional Italian dish.  This stove-top braise is incredibly delicious, full of delicate flavors.

Chicken Vesuvio, or Pollo alla Vesuvio, is another recipe from the cookbook, Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner? by Lisa Caponigri.  Chicken Vesuivo is a simple stove-top braise that is incredibly delicious, giving you super tender chicken with a wonderful light flavor.  Just be sure to brown the chicken and potatoes well before proceeding with the recipe – the caramelization adds lot of flavor and the browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan become the basis of a fantastic pan sauce.

Chicken Nuggets Recipe

5 Oct

Chicken Nuggets are a meal everyone has had before, but not like this.  A super crispy, seasoned coating and the most tender chicken.  You'll never go to the drive-thru again for nuggets.

Chicken Nuggets are something that everyone has had before at some point in time.  If you have picky eaters in your house, you might have them more often then others.  Parents often pick up Chicken Nuggets in large bags from the freezer section or at fast food drive-thru’s.  These are not Chicken Nuggets, don’t fool yourself.  They are seriously lacking in flavor and texture.  Instead of feeding your family the fake imitations, serve up some of these awesome, flavorful, and easy homemade Chicken Nuggets.

Jerk Chicken Reicpe

2 Jun

Jerk Chicken is a spicy, flavorful dish that is perfect for summer BBQs.  The sauce can be used as a marinade or at the table on top of your favorite foods.

Jerk Chicken is an amazing dish I love to eat, but have always been a bit intimidated to make myself.  This was mainly because I didn’t have my own recipe for it, and when you go looking for Jerk sauce recipes, there are many variations out there.  It seems as though everyone has their own special Jerk Chicken recipe, that varies slightly from each other.  After much searching I came up with my own Spicy Jerk Sauce recipe, made from a combination of recipes I found.  I think you’ll agree that this is a good contender with authentic Jerk Chicken that can be found at Jamaican restaurants.

Chicken Gumbo Recipe

6 May

Chicken Gumbo Recipe is a healthy, flavorful, easy dish that families will love.  Add some spice to your life, and prepare this great slow-cooker meal.

Like a lot of my recipes, this is not a traditional Chicken Gumbo Recipe.  Even though this Gumbo is not prepared in the traditional sense, it tastes every bit as amazing, with a fraction of the effort.  With no roux, this Chicken Gumbo is more thin like a soup, but works wonderfully when served on top of rice.  This more of a Creole Recipe then Cajun.  By not adding a roux to the recipe, this Chicken Gumbo Recipe is much healthier, reducing fat and calories.

Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Chicken Parmesan is a good recipe everyone should have…or two, as this is the second one found on The Hungry Wife.  Although similar recipes, this one is particularly wonderful for a weeknight meal.  Easy to prepare, I like using thin cut chicken breast halves so I don’t have to pound the chicken thin.

Chicken Enchiladas is an awesome dish, and this recipe is a bit unique.  A super creamy and flavorful white sauce is makes these enchiladas so special.  If you do prefer a red sauce on your Chicken Enchiladas, omit the soup, sour cream, and 1 cup of milk.  Stir the reserved chile peppers into 2 1/2 cups of canned or homemade red sauce.  Bake as directed.

Oriental Chicken Wings

1 Nov

Oriental Chicken Wings is a super flavorful dish, that can be served as an appetizer at a party or as a delicious main dish.  Either way, this dish is sure to please.

Last night I was staring in my refrigerator, looking for something to make for dinner.  It was the end of the week, the day before grocery day, and the options were limited.  I had thawed out some chicken pieces earlier, now I just needed to figure out what to do with them.  Flipping through one of my trusty cookbooks, I found the recipe for Oriental Chicken Wings.  I had all the required ingredients (chicken pieces instead of wings, but close enough), and even though it is cooked in a slow cooker, you can make it in two hours.  Perfect.

Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy

6 Oct

Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy will have you craving Thanksgiving dinner all year.  The herb butter compliments poultry so well, leaving turkey moist and delicious.

With the anticipation of fall food and Thanksgiving around the corner, I have been craving traditional comfort foods like your favorite bird, gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry relish.  In order to satisfy my desires I decided to cook up a mini Thanksgiving feast.  Herb and Mustard Turkey with Green Onion Gravy is the ultimate (and my favorite) recipe that meets this criteria.  To scale it down to size for a dinner for two, I used a whole chicken instead of a turkey.  This helped provide enough leftovers to make an amazing chicken salad and homemade chicken stock.

White Chicken Chili with Aged Cheddar Cheese

9 Sep

White Chicken Chili with Aged Cheddar Cheese is The Hungry Wife version of white chili.  I love white chili. And just like regular chili, there are as many incarnations as there are grains of sand in all the beaches of the world

I love how chili has the ability to be very dynamic with flavors and spices exploding in your mouth.  Each chili has subtle differences, yet they are also very familiar.  There is nothing better than red chili, but every now and then it is nice to divert from the norm and create something every bit as flavorful but completely different.

Chicken Parmesan For Two

20 May

Chicken Parmesan - no good recipe collection is complete without it. A fan asked about a good Chicken Parmesan recipe, and this instantly came to mind.

Chicken Parmesan – no good recipe collection is complete without it.  Recently a The Hungry Wife fan asked about a good Chicken Parmesan recipe, and this is what popped into my head.  Although we have not made it recently enough to have pictures, it is unforgettable.  Chicken Parmesan does not need to be complicated, and there are a lot of recipes out there that can make it harder than it seems.

This Chicken Parmesan recipe is perfectly portioned for two people, but can easily be made for extra servings.  All you have to do is increase ingredients to reach the desired serving size and instead of using an ovenproof skillet to bake the chicken, place chicken that has already been cooked in skillet into a 9 x 13-inch pan and cover with sauce and cheese and cook as directed in the recipe.  This also works if you do not have an ovenproof skillet.  No need to go buy one, simply use a casserole dish to finish that baking portion.

For many people, Chicken Parmesan is a comfort food.  To make it all the more special, be sure to cook up your own sauce with the recipe provided.  If you are short on time, you can use jarred pasta sauce.
