Lighter Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

(Disclosure: I received free samples of Sabra Spreads mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.) Even though I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I just love a good Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.  There is just something about a chicken sandwich smothered in hot sauce and blue cheese that says "come to mama". However, a typical buffalo chicken ... Continue Reading

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Zespri Kiwifruit and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.) I love tacos.

Healthy Habanero Chicken Wings – Get Ready for Game Day

Dan (the hubs) is a chicken wing snob connoisseur...he's eaten chicken wings all over the world and 80% of the time that we go out to eat, he orders wings. He loves them, plain and simple.

However, since Super Bowl Sunday hits 2 days before the end of our 21 day sugar detox, I needed to make a snack that we ... Continue Reading

Greek Pesto Chicken Flatbread

This lunch is so simple but soooo good!!! I made it last week (and posted on Instagram) and I honestly only had about 10 minutes to make lunch but was craving something more than lunch meat and cheese (a regular staple around here lately). A quick trip the grocery store, a few minutes at home mixing ingredients and presto...lunch was made. I took a couple shortcuts to save even more time...I purchased pre-made pesto and used rotisserie chicken breast (rather than cooking my own chicken)... Continue Reading

The Best Chicken Burger

  However, I can't eat a big burger like that all the time, unless I want to be overweight with insanely high cholesterol. So, I save those bad-ass burgers for a special treat, which actually makes me enjoy them even more.   In the meantime, I try to find meals that are equally as flavorful, but with less calories and artery-clogging saturated fat. This recipe is probably my favorite Chicken Burger to date (and I've made a lot of chicken burgers). It's relatively simple ... Continue Reading

Chicken & Spinach Meatballs – Flavors of Fall

  This recipe has become a go-to in my house and it fits with this week's fall theme because it just screams "cozy dinner" to me. I can picture serving it on a rainy weeknight, with a glass of red wine, candles lit, maybe some jazz playing in the background....that's my dream dinner world. In real life, there is probably a football game on tv, cheerios leftover from breakfast stuck on the table, and not a candle in sight. But a girl can dream!   These Chicken & ... Continue Reading
