Not Your Typical Chicken Lazone

Chicken Lazone sounds intriguing. It has an international ring to it. At lease to these American ears. Nothing could be further from the truth. Chicken Lazone is a dish born right here, in America. While Chicken Lazone has been around since the 1990s, recently with more people cooking at home, it’s achieving renewed popularity.

Buffalo Spicy Chicken Tenders

While these Chicken Tenders might not look like your typical Buffalo Spice Chicken, believe you me they bring on the heat. There’s heat in the flour coating, buttermilk dip and Panko breading.

Is the Great American Pot Pie Really American?

Today is the Great American Pot Pie Day. Ask my husband and he will tell you emphatically that a true Pot Pie is made with both a bottom and top crust. It’s the way he grew up. We didn’t eat much in the way of pot pies except an occasional Swanson’s TV Dinner Pot Pie. Back then, I wasn’t a fan of cooked carrots or the texture of frost-bitten peas, so I ate the top crust, then picked out all the vegetables before eating what was left.

Care to Guess What Day It Is?

Yep, it’s National Chicken Boy Day. I gotta tell you, I never had the opportunity to eat at his restaurant. In all my travels to Southern California, I’ve never seen the giant Chicken Boy and until recently, had never even known of him. But now that I know he exists, I find Chicken Boy strangely fascinating.

One-Pot of Deliciousness!

I gotta tell ya, this was one of the most difficult dishes to make. And not for the reasons you might think. The first time I had this one-pot wonder on our meal planner was the day after restaurants closed for the second time in California. Don’t ask me why, but I felt very rebellious. Fine, if we can’t eat out, I won’t cook at all was my attitude. We can starve. That in itself made no sense since we don’t eat out very often. It was just frustrating to have options removed.

Chicken Breast with Rosemary Butter Sauce

This year we planted some Rosemary in the front yard. I had tried (foolishly) to grow Rosemary in my herb garden. Let’s just say that an herb that grows into a big bush has no business in a small clay pot.

Summertime Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli

Kiddo is a fan of Chicken Cordon Bleu, as am I. Hubby, not so much. He’d rather eat thighs than breasts. He’s not a fan of cheese stuffed into chicken, but he does like a ham and cheese sandwich. Go figure.

No Ordinary Grilled Chicken Fajita Foil Packs

The beauty of Grilled Foil Packs is that you can prep the pack early to cook later. Having company? Make the Fajita and Tortilla Packs in the morning, clean up the mess. Once guests arrive, toss the foil packs on the grill. By the time the first batch of Margaritas are ready, dinner is served.

Alfredo Smothered Chicken

Do you like bacon? How about Pesto? And Alfredo? If you said yes to all three, this is a dish for you. Alfredo Sauce all on its own over chicken is delicious. Add to that the creamy herbs of pesto and the smoky crunch of bacon bits, and you are talking beyond delicious.

Nacho Chicken Casserole

I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of casseroles. Everything you’ll want all piled in a single dish. Maybe add a side of salad or some warm rolls, and there you go – dinner in a snap. And just about anything can be transformed into a delicious casserole.
