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.
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.
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.
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.
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 🙂
My brother Joe used to love chicken grilled this way and often had extra in the freezer.
It is similar to the chicken we can get at the fair. It uses an easy marinade and is best if made early morning.
As the weather cools down, hot soup is a very easy and filling meal. This recipe has been adapted from a recipe that Mom M. gave to Angie who passed it on to me.
The turmeric is very subtle and more could be added easily without overpowering the other flavors. If you like ginger and garlic, go sparingly at first. They are not super strong, but will quickly overpower the chicken.
Serve as is with some fresh bread.
