Chardonnay Chicken

This chardonnay chicken recipe is super easy and is just the thing to fancy-up a regular weeknight meal. I used a chardonnay gifted to me by Prescription Vineyards and chicken from Omaha Steaks and the combo was perfect (we drank the chardonnay with the chicken also and that was...

Chicken chili — an easy one-pot dinner

Chicken Recipe: Sweet Potato With Chicken Chili

This might be my favorite new chicken recipe. While there are many white chicken chili recipes out there, somehow I’ve never made it until this week. I decided to use this version as a sweet potato topping, but it would be good on its own or rolled into a...

Chicken Recipe: Soup with Saffron & Vegetables

This chicken recipe started with me flipping through one of Julia Child’s cookbooks and seeing something called “Pot-Au-Feu.” It looked good, if a little complicated. In Julia’s recipe, she trussed the chicken and stuffed it with homemade dressing before placing it in the boiling water. That sounded great, but...

Easy and healthy Asian-inspired chicken

We love getting takeout from a local Chinese restaurant, but occasionally we want the flavors without the unhealthy stuff sometimes added by restaurants. This dish is an easy take on the flavors we love and is just as nice served in a lettuce cup as it is alongside rice....

The easiest and fastest chicken noodle soup

Yesterday was a work from home day like all the rest, except the kids were out of school for a holiday. I, of course, forgot about this holiday and wasn’t prepared to serve them lunch. It was a little cold and windy, so a quick soup sounded good. This...

White chicken chili topped sweet potato

Brussels sprout salad

There is a restaurant near my house (if you are local you will know Pacific Table ) that makes the best, BEST, Brussels sprout salad. I made my own version at home, and while it pales in comparison, was my favorite meal this week. I’m pretty sure there is no...

Cookbook review: The Pho Cookbook by Andrea Nguyen

I’ve been a huge pho fan since I was a teenager and my dad took me to a little place in Oklahoma City. He told me “it’s this great chicken noodle soup. You’ll love it.” And I did… so much that pho was my go-to hospital takeout when I...

Tangy White Bean Salad

This bean salad is exactly what a summer barbecue or cookout needs. It’s good warm or cold, packs creaminess from the white beans, crunch and sharpness from the onion and bell pepper, and flavors galore. The “secret” ingredient is horseradish, though this salad wouldn’t be the same without the...
