Simple Teriyaki Chicken

Simple Teriyaki Chicken is so easy and quick, it’s barely even a recipe!  However, I wanted to share this super simple way to prepare chicken with you all.  We love to eat it over rice, but it would also be excellent on a salad or even in sushi!  The chicken cooks in less than 15 minutes, and with the use of a sheet of foil, cleanup is a breeze.

Chicken Stir Fry

Whenever I find myself with an excess of vegetables on hand, I like to make Chicken Stir Fry.  It’s simple, and I almost always have the rest of the ingredients on hand.  When served over rice, it is a complete meal that is quick enough for a weeknight meal.

Salt & Pepper Chicken

Salt & Pepper Chicken is yet another dish that I had to learn how to make after working at an Asian/Fusion restaurant in college. It flavorful and crispy, and very juicy as it is made with marinated dark meat chicken.  While this was not one of the menu items at the restaurant, our chef, “Ma”, would make it for the staff because she knew how much we enjoyed it.  After much searching online for a recipe, I finally found one that I was able to modify to taste about as close to Ma’s recipe as I think I’m going to get.  If you enjoy bold flavors, I think you will love Salt & Pepper Chicken.

Orange Cashew Chicken

I love cashews.  I also love mandarin oranges.  And chicken.  Combine those with a sauce that’s a little salty and a little sweet, and you’ve got a winning dish that comes together in about 30 minutes or less.  We love to eat this for dinner in our house… My husband even claims that it is “Better than takeout!”, so I hope your family enjoys it, too.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza is an excellent way to make a little bit of leftover chicken go a long way.  I crafted this pizza after that of a certain pizza chain, and I think you’ll enjoy this adaptation!  Of course, you can always adjust the toppings to suit your tastes, and to fit what you have on hand!

Sweet & Sour Chicken

I have come to love recipes that can be made in the slow cooker.  I love being able to throw everything together in the morning and come home in the evening to a meal that’s ready to go!  Some meals, such as this one, don’t require quite as long to cook.  If the recipe only needs to cook 4 or 6 hours, I mix it up and ask my husband to put it in the slow cooker and turn it on at lunch! Sweet & Sour Chicken is an excellent addition to your list of slow-cooked dinners!
