Herb Roasted Chicken w/ Roasted Garlic Brown Gravy

I’ve been dealing with a lot of styles of chicken lately. From segments to quartered from brined to smoked. But let me tell you, nothing beats a herb crusted roasted chicken with a pan gravy on the side. Ever since I made parmesan cheese a staple in my chicken seasoning blends its really changed the…

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Fun Fact! Buffalo chicken pizza was one of the first things I was allowed to solo cook as a kid. I first saw buffalo chicken pizza on the Food Network and was like this is revolutionary. When I was a kid I used to cook the chicken up, cut it into huge undesirable pieces take…

Roasted Parmesan & Lemon Chicken

So this post is sorta incomplete. I made this awesome parmesan lemon chicken. With two awesome sides lemon and sage French bread stuffing and a killer salad with a parmesan dressing with homemade croutons. Seriously top twenty best meals I’ve ever had. It left me feeling satisfied, not overworked and not too heavy. The thing…

Spicy Chicken Quesadilla

In my house everyday has potential for being quesadilla day. The protein may vary but the concept is still the same. Tortilla, meat, cheese and done.

Pineapple-Sriracha Chicken Wings

Oh man, I eat a lot of chicken wings. Chicken wings are one of those things in my eyes that are a perfect stomping ground for crazy or experimental flavor’s. I mean no harm, no foul, right? It seems like whenever one person wants wings the news travels fast and by the end of the…

Chicken w/ Bacon and Crispy Capers

So I guess the theme of today is everything crispy! Sometimes I find myself in the mood for a lot of texture but not necessarily deep frying stuff. When I utilize stuff like bacon fat to crisp or fry up stuff I find it to be less guilty because it not deep fried right? Well…

Pineapple Habanero Chicken

Pineapple habanero chicken can be alarming to some. Often times people hear habanero and panic because of its association with scorching heat. Heat from these spices are subjective and while some can handle it others cant. Paired with the proper things it can be tamed and you can rein in the heat….sorta. So I want…
