Lime Glazed Chicken

Lime Glazed Chicken

I saw this recipe and since I love chicken, thought I would make it for dinner. Of course, you know me, I never have the right ingredients so I had to substitute some of it.

Creamy Lemon Chicken Dish

Creamy Lemon Chicken Dish

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I need something other than turkey for dinner. Although I love leftovers, I was ready for something NOT turkey. So this Creamy Lemon Chicken was easy and tasted great. The creamy lemon sauce is amazing. Of course, I do love my chicken recipes.

Chicken Enchiladas

Amazing Chicken Enchiladas

Do you like Mexican food? We love it. My husband would choose a Mexican restaurant over any other restaurant. So I wanted to make some Mexican food that we could eat at home. I have made enchiladas with a bechamel sauce but this time I decided to make a tomato base sauce.

Yummy Chicken Salad

When we go camping, I love to make things that are yummy and yet don't take lots of prep time.  This week I decided to make chicken salad. I could cook the chicken before we left and mix it up and then we could have it over the weekend.

Chicken and Salsa Dish

When it comes time for dinner, sometimes I like a quick and easy meal. Although this meal may not be ready in under 30 minutes (around 45) it is easy to put together.

Honey-Mustard Pecan-Crusted Chicken

I love chicken and I am always trying new ways to serve it. The ingredients for this chicken are things you probably already have in your pantry. 

As many of you know, I always have pecans, since my brother-in-law runs a pecan farm, so this recipe was a perfect fit for me.

Balsamic Chicken with Brussels Sprouts

I am continuing my quest to eat low carb. I have found some recipes that I am either trying or making changes to. This recipe for Balsamic Chicken with Brussels Sprouts originally called for adding tomatoes. Since I am not a tomato fan, I needed to add a vegetable that would work with the chicken - Brussels sprouts. The combination was amazing.

Low Carb Pork Rind Chicken Tenders

Recently, I went on a low-carb diet. I am not a big bread eater so that hasn't been bad. I do miss dessert. I spend time looking at the carbs in foods now and it has been interesting learning about which foods have the most carbs.  I found this low-carb chicken recipe that is made with pork rinds of all things.

Kickin Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Nachos are great as an appetizer, but what about for dinner.  When my husband and I go out, sometimes we get a couple of appetizers to share for dinner. So when I saw this recipe, I thought why not for dinner.

Polynesian Chicken with Pineapple

What to do with all of those pineapples? Use them in recipes. If you follow me, you know that I am having a bumper crop of pineapples this year. You can see that post here.

We have eaten them fresh, in smoothies and frozen some. So last night I decided to add some to my Polynesian Chicken. What a great combination

Eclectic Red Barn: Polynesian Chicken with Pineapple

This is such an easy dish to prepare and you do that in one pan. 

Cut up the chicken, dice the pineapple, add in the other ingredients, stir together and bake. Easy, peasy!

I served it over rice, but you could eat it plain as well and save the extra calories. Maybe just add a vegetable.  See the nutritional information at the bottom of the recipe and you will be surprised at how few calories this recipe contains.

Easy Bubbly Chicken Parmesan

Do you love Italian?  I think my husband could eat Italian every night. He travels to Italy often for work and gets his fill there, but sometimes I just have to make one of his favorite dishes - Chicken Parmesan.

I know that there are many versions of this recipe, so why mine? I am hoping that my version with a little less sauce and slightly crunchy chicken will entice you to try it.

Easy Chicken Stuffed with String Cheese

Here is a quick and easy meal that is sure to please everyone. Chicken and string cheese, how can you go wrong. I had great ideas about dinner last night, but one thing lead to another and before I knew it, my husband was home from work. I had two chicken breasts and it seemed like everything I wanted to make, I didn't have all the ingredients. I did have string cheese, so that's what I used.

Sorry that these are not the greatest images. My husband, kept saying, "can we eat now?"

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mango, Black Bean and Corn Salsa

If you follow me, you know that I have mango trees and they produce many, many mangoes. It is that time of the year again - mangoes are starting to fall. I picked up about a dozen over the weekend. What can I make? Something with chicken and mangoes!

Chicken and Kale Soup

We love Kale in our house and I am always looking for recipes that have Kale in them. When I saw this soup recipe, I knew I had to try it. Not only was it good, but it is low in calories (279), sugar (2 g) and high in protein (37 g).

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Looking for a simple and fast dinner idea? These chicken enchiladas are easy to put together and taste great. If you use a roasted chicken, it goes together even faster. I like to make my own shredded chicken. I takes a little more time, but I love the flavor. I will share how I do this in another post. 

I did not put the onions in this batch, since my stomach doesn't like them. You can change up the cheeses to suit what you like, these make a great combo.

I divided the chicken mixture among 6 flour tortillas, that is all I had on hand. I placed them in the dish with the seam side down.

 Next I made the roux.

I added the sour cream and green chilies to the roux and poured it over the tortillas. Added the remaining cheese and baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Yummy!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas



1 lb shredded chicken breast(can used a roasted chicken)

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

8 flour tortillas, softened (8 inches each)

1 1/2 cups grated monterey jack cheese or 1 1/2 cups Mexican blend cheese, divided

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

1 (15 ounce) can chicken broth

1 cup sour cream

1. In frypan, cook onion in oil over medium-high heat until golden. Add shredded chicken and heat through.

2. Divide cooked chicken evenly between 8 tortillas; add 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese to each tortilla.

3. Roll enchiladas and place seam-side down in 9x13" baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

4. Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in flour to make a roux; stir and cook until bubbly; gradually whisk in chicken broth then bring to boiling, stirring frequently.

5. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and green chiles; pour sauce evenly over enchiladas.

6. Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese (baking dish may be double-wrapped and frozen at this point) and bake at 400F for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce near edges of baking dish is bubbly.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
