Honey Ginger Wings

Honey Ginger WingsI love me some wings!  We have a turkey deep fryer that we used for Thanksgiving and since there is so much costly leftover oil, I keep it around and fire it up a few more times.  Most of those coincide with football watching and fried finger foods.  This was a deviation from classic buffalo or garlic parm which we have made before and as much as I love good ol hot buffalo I welcomed some new flavors.  This recipe was cool since it uses fresh ingredients like ginger and garlic.  I made it twice and achieved more of a thick sticky glaze the second time around and no dipping sauce was needed.

Garlic Parmesan Wing Dip

Garlic Parmesan Wings are one of our most popular posts.  Go figure.  I tried to take that concept and apply it to the idea of a Buffalo Chicken Dip with roasted garlic and jalapenos, and a wing sauce base.  Debuting at the Superbow  – uh I mean big game this easy and deeply tasteful dip was a great success.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

We are back from Christmas break and starting it off with a pretty simple dish of chicken cordon bleu and creamed spinach.  It is just chicken pounded thin then rolled up with ham and cheese inside.  As easy as it sounds.

Braised Chicken with Butternut Squash Stuffing

If you haven’t noticed we’ve been on a bit of a pumpkin kick lately and originally the idea for this dish was to make a pumpkin stuffing. Well, a butternut squash arrived in our CSA and one thing lead to the next and here we are. I had never cooked with butternut squash before and I was up for the challenge. I decided to work off the recipe I used the one other time I’ve made stuffing from scratch and developed a tasty recipe!

Roasted Chicken Enchiladas Suizas Stacked Casserole

Whew that title is a mouthful… a delicious mouthful at least! We received tomatillos two weeks in a row from our CSA and felt inspired to make some yummy green-sauce enchiladas. I searched the interwebs and found this recipe. I liked the idea of “suizas” or Swiss cheese flavored enchiladas and though I typically shy away from Rachael Ray recipes this one seemed pretty fun to make and rather unique. Not only did the flavor profile intrigue me but also the idea of a “stacked casserole”. The whole rolling up the enchiladas into cigar shaped tubes can be very messy and painstaking so why not skip it? I made a few modifications to her recipe both while making it and afterwards (link at the end of the post).

Street Style Chicken on a Stick with Teryaki Bourbon Glaze

I had a hankering for Chinese street style chicken on a stick and decided to expand and make my own glaze.  I have used Soy Vay brand teriyaki sauce before but wanted to make my own and make it spicier and alcoholier.  These are boneless skinless chicken thighs with my improvised recipe of a bourbon teriyaki glaze.

Lemon Almond Chicken Salad


We had a coupon for a few dollars off any prepared food at Giant Eagle Market District and picked up some of their lemon almond chicken salad and I knew instantly upon eating it that I would soon be recreating it in my own kitchen. So here it is!
