Man-Pleasing Chicken

Man-Pleasing Chicken
I have never gotten so many compliments before, let alone for a piece of chicken. David suggested calling this chicken, “So Good it Can’t Be Described, Explosion on Your Taste Buds Chicken.” Exactly. I have never encountered a dish that is so basic and simple to put together yet creates such a big pay off. This chicken, quite simply, is one of the most savory things I’ve ever eaten. If you are the busiest person on the planet and don’t have much cooking experience, but you have to prepare a meal to woo the love of your life, cook this chicken! To make this chicken, which you should absolutely do immediately, preheat your oven to 450º F. Put 1.5 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs into a foil-lined or disposable oven-proof, 8×8 inch baking dish. Put the chicken thighs into the oven, and let them bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165ºF. I adapted this recipe from “The I <3 Trader Joe’s Cookbook” by Cherie Mercer Twohy.

Taste and Tell: Cookbook of the Month Recipe - Chicken Fingers with Spicy Avocado Sauce Oven baked chicken fingers are served with a spicy avocado and sour cream sauce. 4K+ I have read that the number one pregnancy craving is ice cream. But it hasn’t been for me. In fact, I’m sure that my husband has eaten way more ice cream than I have through this pregnancy. Although my likes/cravings for sweets is slowly coming back, I still am craving savory and spicy more than anything. In fact, my favorite pregnancy indulgence has been this – take a plate and layer a single layer of tortilla chips on top.

Chicken Parmigiana Italia {Electric Digital Pressure Cooker Recipe}  This is one of my favorite recipes to make. It makes chicken breasts unbelievable soft, juicy and tender without running the risk of it becoming dry and flavorless. I’ve made this several times since I’ve had my pressure cooker and it’s time I share it here on the blog. I think I would rate the difficulty level at about a 6 because of the list of ingredients and the amount of prep work before pressure cooking.

First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website. Anyway, I just love Australia.

Doritos Cheesy Chicken Casserole This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Diane Blake. She was kind enough to share her favorite recipe with me. I've never made a Doritos Cheesy Chicken Casserole, so we gave it a try. This is one of those dishes that isn't pretty, but it tastes really good. We both really enjoyed this. I used some rotisserie chicken meat and this came together in no time.

Chicken & Shrimp Jambalaya It's not Mardi Gras unless Jambalaya is on the menu! For my Mardi Gras potluck I knew this was the dish I was going to prepare and found the following recipe on Cook's Illustrated. As predicted, this was spot on with not too much spice, great flavor and perfect as a meal all on it's own. If you wanted, you could even prepare this dish using pasta in place of the rice. To do so, prepare the recipe as follows without the rice. Boil your choice of pasta separately.

Fortunately I have one method that makes unfailingly juicy and tender boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Need some chicken for a salad, or to top some pasta?
