First of all, you’ll need a little chicken. What I’m working with today is one grilled chicken breast leftover from a few nights ago, and the remnants of a rotisserie chicken we used earlier in the week. Grilled, rotisserie, or whatever you have on hand works JUST FINE for this recipe. You can add as much or little as you want – it’s just serving to beef up your bowl to make it more hearty and provide more servings.
I was never a fan of Broccoli Cheese Soup until I tried it at Panera. From that first moment I’ve been in love! I’ve tried several times to recreate the recipe at home unsuccessfully until now. This simple recipe for Copycate Panera Bread broccoli cheese soup comes together perfectly and may even be better than Panera’s (if that’s possible).
The only thing that would make Panera’s better is the fact that it saves me from cooking and cleaning up the mess afterwards. Serve this copycat Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup with a nice crusty loaf of bread and a salad for a fabulous meal.
Jamie here! Bi-Lo has whole chickens on sale this week for 89¢/lb – I’m picking some up to make my simple roast chicken and thought I’d re-share it in case you missed it before
Jamie here, if you’re looking for a simple roast chicken recipe – here’s your guy. No kidding – if I’d ever realized in the early years of marriage that making a beautiful roast chicken was this easy, I would’ve saved my husband from years of Hamburger Helper
I learned this tip from my friend Meg, who is an amazing cook and the type of woman you secretly kind of hate, who makes a home-cooked dinner every. single. night. She’s also cute - which is just unfair (right?). But while hanging out with her recently she told me that she roasts chicken pretty often to make chicken salad for the week – or soup, tacos, pasta or other recipes.
After she shared her secret, I had to try it right away.
I love easy recipes! Especially those that I can throw in one pan together and bake so I can focus on other tasks at hand. This recipe for Rosemary Chicken and Veggies in Mustard Sauce turned out amazing!! I used all fresh veggies including carrots, onions, red potatoes, and green beans. You could use any kind of chicken you want, however my kids requested legs (which I hate) so I bought a whole cut up chicken. Serve with a simple green salad for a healthy easy dinner.
This recipe is AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge friendly.
Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook. Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe. So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.
Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste. We loved this recipe, although it was a little spicy. I made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal. If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes, I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.

If you’ve been searching through Memorial Day dessert recipes, you may want to consider making this Patriotic Punch Bowl Cake. It’s super easy to make and so yummy! You can use a store bought angel food cake, or make a cake yourself. The great thing about punch bowl cakes, is that you can vary the ingredients and type of cake to suit your fancy. Yellow cake, white cake, and pound cake are just a couple of varieties that could be substituted. This Memorial Day recipe looks very patriotic with the red, white, and blue color combination from the strawberries, blueberries, and whipped topping. [Read more...]
