The ingredients are simple and probably already in your pantry and refrigerator. All you do is blend everything together then throw it in a zip top bag with your raw chicken. Let it marinade overnight and it is ready to grill. I like to reserve some of the sauce the night before in a small ...

Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

I woke up today with snow falling from the sky. What a good day to make Crock Pot White Chicken Chili. This is an easy recipe where everything can be added in the crock pot, frozen chicken included, turn it on low and let it cook all day. Just before serving pull out the chicken, shred, then return to the crock pot. My kids love adding a few extra ingredients to top the chili in their own bowls. It is a great way to customize the chili to their own tastes. Serve this with some delicious ...

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

I love nights when I can dump and go. This Chicken Broccoli Casserole is one of those easy recipes. The hardest part is cooking and dicing the chicken. To make it even faster use left over chicken or thanksgiving turkey, canned chicken or even rotisserie chicken. The recipe calls for frozen broccoli because it is ready to go, no need to thaw. In fact the extra water makes the sauce a little more soupy which is the way we like it. You are welcome to use fresh broccoli, just make sure to cut ...

Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad

Do you ever have a night where you want something light and easy? Salads seem to fit that description in our house. We love this Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad because it seems to have little prep work. But then when I think about it the only reason it has little prep work is because we have done the cooking earlier in the day, or the day before. We always have frozen chicken. Once thing I have learned is to defrost the chicken most of the way in the microwave. When it is still slightly firm ...

Grilling on the BBQ in the Winter…..Sure Why Not!

We thought we would mix things up a bit and make a dish that is usually prepared for summer barbeques in the WINTER! And yes, we broke out the BBQ Grill in the winter, with snow on the ground! My Little Chefs thought it was so much fun. We came across this delicious Chicken recipe when a good neighbor of mine brought us dinner one night. Our Chef Dad was out-of-town for work, and she knew that when he is out-of-town, us Chefs take a break from the kitchen and pretty much eat cereal for ...

Breaded Ranch Parmesan Chicken

We seem to have chicken at least once per week in our home. The Little Chefs like it and it seems you can make it in so many different ways. I have heard of ranch chicken before, but I have never tried it myself. I have never eaten it, nor have I made it. This seemed like a great opportunity to figure out a new recipe. One of our goals this year is to be a little more adventurous with food. Last year we definitely were with letting the Little Chefs choose the meal and execute the meal. This ...

Chicken Enchiladas

    We have one recipe for enchiladas we have been using since I was little, well I added some beans to it over the years. I found this Chicken Enchilada recipe and had to give it a try. I already had my shredded chicken so putting this together wasn't very difficult. I did adapt this recipe quite a bit so that the prep work wouldn't be as time consuming. The onion and garlic was sauteed. Then all the spices were added in to toast for a quick minute. The corn and chilis were added and ...

Spicy Moroccan Glazed Chicken

I knew from the recipe selection this was going to be either a hit or a miss. The spices were in our pantry as my sister can attest. She was just here helping me and wondered about some of the unusual spices we had including some for this recipe...that is unusual to her! Little Chef C was ready to begin with her apron on anxious to do her job. She first measured out the lime juice then the yogurt. It's a good thing we had the plain yogurt from the Creamy Cucumbers to use up as we are not fans ...

Little Chef A is improving her knife skills. She finely diced the ...

Chicken Francese

Chicken Francese was shown by Chef Robert in one of the Restaurant Impossible episodes. This was one of the times Little Chef C said she wanted to make that recipe. I do have to say she is disappointed sometimes when all the recipes shown are not available online for her to make at home. Little Chef C cracked the eggs very well into a small bowl by herself, then broke them up with a fork. She was very proud she completed this small task alone. She went out of the kitchen for a moment and ...

Oven Fried Chicken

   Chicken seems to be a staple in our home. We loved the Citrus Braised Chicken Breast with Sweet Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Chicken with Orange Maple Glaze.  Oven Fried Chicken from Paula Deen seemed to be a good fit for Little Chef D. She never refuses chicken so when asked if she wanted to make a chicken recipe she was very excited. The other Little Chefs did not know what she was making for dinner. So when I pulled it out of the oven (because Little Chef D is not able to safely ...

How NOT to brine a turkey!

Five Little Chefs - How NOT to brine a turkey Little Chef A thought it would be fun to make a turkey. While we were cooking she said over and over she wished it was Thanksgiving so we could have a lot of cousins to play with! That is usually what happens when we have turkey for a meal. After defrosting the turkey for days and taking up so much space in our refrigerator it was time to start preparing. Little Chef A was overly excited to take it out and put it in the freshly cleaned kitchen ...

Chicken Fajitas

Five Little Chefs - Chicken Fajitas     We bought a lot of fresh vegetables at the store. In our house that usually means Chicken Fajitas for dinner. Little Chef A wanted to help. This recipe has a lot of slicing which is why in the past I've made this alone.This is her day to learn how to slice! The first step for Chicken Fajitas is to make the marinate. She needed to squeeze a lime. Little Chef A immediately took the lime and started rolling it on the counter. I asked her ...

Rosemary Chicken with Orange Maple Glaze

Five Little Chefs - Rosemary Chicken with Orange Maple Glaze We frequently eat chicken, but are always looking for an even better recipe. Little Chef C wanted to try this Rosemary Chicken with Orange Maple Glaze recipe.   We had a chance to talk about substitutes for wine.

Before the ...

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Five Little Chefs - Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas     At  one of my regular sites I visit there has been a buzz about these Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas for over a year now, probably two.

Little Chef A and C made the marinade. They are so careful with measuring now they are getting to be very independent. ...

Rumbi Island Easy Mango Chicken and Rice

Five Little Chefs - Rumbi Island Easy Mango Chicken and Rice   Little Chef C wanted to make Rumbi Island Easy Mango Chicken and Rice for dinner. I told her this one was a little different because she would be able to put the chicken and spices in the crockpot then she didn't need to do anything until dinner time. At lunch time she said, "My chicken takes a long time to cook."     The recipe said cumin and lemon pepper to taste. My Little Chefs do not like recipes that say that. ...
