Chicken Paella Recipe

26 Jul

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, 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 Pot Pie

There is nothing better than a Chicken Pot Pie to comfort you, especially on chilly nights.  This is one of my all time favorite dishes, but I never really made it that much until I found this awesome Chicken Pot Pie recipe.

Chicken Nuggets Recipe

5 Oct

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.

Chicken Divan Recipe

12 Jul

Chicken Divan Recipe is another great dish for those busy weeknights.  Super simple to prepare and delicious, Chicken Divan is a great recipe where you are cooking the veggies right along with everything else.  If you have picky eaters that are resistant to trying new veggies, cooking them along with chicken that is smothered in a cheese sauce is a wonderful way to sneak them in.

Jerk Chicken Reicpe

2 Jun

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

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 Swiss Casserole

2 Mar

Chicken Swiss Casserole is easy to make and uses only six ingredients, things that many people have around the house.  You don’t need much extra seasoning in this dish, the ingredients bring the flavor and work together perfectly.  The Swiss cheese has a delicate but distinct flavor, and it melts so perfectly.

There are a lot of chicken casserole recipes out there, but this is my ultimate go to recipe.

Chicken Parmesan Recipe

10 Feb

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 Recipe

2 Feb

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.
