Chicken Shawarma

A recipe Adrian discovered and adapted. Great on salad or with flat bread and shredded vegetables.

Butter Chicken for Instant Pot

A friend brought this over for dinner. It was so good, I asked for the recipe 🙂 This is a mild recipe, so adjust the seasonings if you prefer spicier.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

This is basically the inside of a pot pie. Instead of a crust, either serve with fresh biscuits or, like Audrey recommended, cheese crackers! While this is good the first day, leftovers for lunch was even better.

Chicken Tikka Masala (with dairy free option)

This is a simple recipe that can be made ahead. It is wonderful for company or just a fancier than normal dinner. Use our tikka paste recipe or your favorite blend. One green Serrano chili is not very spicy, but it is needed in this recipe. If you prefer a spicier dish, add more chili’s and serve dry tikka spice on the side. If the dish is too spicy, add a little cream or yogurt. This is very good served with naan!

To make this dairy free, replace yogurt with full fat coconut milk. Either omit the butter or use your favorite plant based butter if you want to use before grilling.

White Chili (with Chicken)

This is an easy, make ahead soup for cold days. We usually keep it on low all day in the crock pot and serve with corn chips or corn bread. Also, to reduce the cheese a little, instead of putting it all in the soup, set some aside to use as garnish.

You will need at least 2 cups of broth, but we usually use more. Use your favorite method to poach the chicken breast, or use this recipe. Leftover broth can be saved for another recipe.

Athenian Chicken

The weather has been perfect for grilling. We wanted a new recipe and discovered this one. It is best grilled over a charcoal fire.

You can cook it whole or placed over an aluminum can half filled with chicken broth and a few tablespoons lemon juice. Or, spatchcock the chicken by removing the backbone and laying it flat to grill. Another option is to buy your favorite chicken pieces instead.

However served, it is extra nice with a greek salad on the side and fresh lemons to squeeze over the top. Or, make a nice honey mustard dressing to drizzle over chicken.

Chicken Nuggets

Other than birthdays, we rarely have chicken nuggets. For birthdays, the kids enjoy dinosaur nuggets eaten in a very specific way. Make them some dinosaur nuggets one day and ask if you are curious.

The other day, Andrea really wanted some nuggets, so she made some along with homemade chips. Thank you camp Patmos and Career Center for teaching Andrea the proper way to deep fry 🙂
