(Lightened Up) Chicken Sausage Alfredo Bake

Pasta bakes are one of my husband’s favorite dishes. I threw this one together using whatever “healthy” options I had available in my refrigerator and pantry. The “healthy” portions it consists of are: whole wheat pasta, al fresco chicken sausage, and light alfredo sauce. Six cheese Italian blend rounds out the dish, topped with grated […]

Sausage Noodle Soup

I threw this sausage noodle soup together on a whim a couple of months ago. It has beef broth, chicken broth, vidalia onion, egg noodles, kielbasa sausage, and spinach inside. For a basic soup, it is very hearty and quite tasty. My husband loved it, although next time I will use fresh spinach instead of […]

(From Scratch) Chicken Noodle Soup

I have made chicken noodle soup countless times over the years, but this was the first time making my own stock. It is much simpler than it sounds, and all you need is some bone-in chicken breasts and a large pot of water to get you started. Bring the chicken to a boil, and simmer […]

Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

I have seen varieties of sesame honey chicken circulating Pinterest, but the picture from Family Fresh Meals really caught my eye. I adapted their recipe, using two large one pound frozen chicken breasts, extra honey, extra cornstarch, and voiding the red pepper flakes. After slowly cooking for hours, our house smelled somewhat like a sweet […]

Chicken Divan

        Growing up, chicken divan was one of my all-time favorite recipes that my mom made. I knew when I walked in the door from school and smelled that glorious chicken roasting in the oven that I was going to have one of two treasured meals: chicken and biscuits or chicken divan. I remember vying […]

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I love trying out new slow cooker recipes. When I saw the cream cheese chicken chili on Plain Chicken and then again on Six Sisters’ Stuff, I couldn’t wait to try it. I have a very large slow cooker, so when I make recipes in it, I often double the ingredients to make a huge […]

Slow Cooker Chicken-Mexi Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken-Mexi Soup      I love to make chili in my slow cooker. Usually I make a recipe from my grandfather called Aztec Chili, using ground beef. It is a delicious recipe, and I promise to post it one day. In the meantime, I was searching for lighter fare. My chicken-mexi soup is […]
