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.

Spinach Lasagna is a healthy, super flavorful pasta dish that the whole family is sure to love.  A few weeks before my son was born, I decided I wanted to stock the freezer with pre-made dinners that only had to be reheated in the oven or stove top.  This would help us in the first weeks after bringing baby home, and ensure we were still eating well.

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.
