If you haven’t checked out the Meat Counter at your local Festival Foods, I highly recommend it!  You can find plenty of standard meat options; beef, chicken, seafood, etc. …things you would expect to see.  BUT you will also find some specialty items you might not be familiar with.  My favorite items to buy are the encrusted chicken breasts.  They come in a variety of flavors; pecan, parmesan, buffalo, and tortilla are the most common.  If you are lucky, you might find a different flavor from time to time.  They are sold individually or pre-packaged as a pack of 2, depending on the store location. You can typically find some of each in our freezer for a quick and easy weeknight meal.  Most commonly, I will bake the chicken breasts and serve them with a side salad or slice the chicken to eat on top of a bed of lettuce.  You can play around with different flavor combinations … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas are another way to enjoy a popular dish.  If I can find a way to eat buffalo chicken or find a way to make it into a new dish…. it’s going to happen.  And these quesadillas don’t disappoint!  They come together quickly, only take a few ingredients, and can be doubled or tripled if you need to feed a crowd. The recipe can be found here. Start by shredding or cubing the chicken.  I like to use rotisserie chicken because it’s tender and flavorful (and precooked), but you can easily bake your own chicken if you prefer.  Add the chicken to a mixing bowl and pour in the buffalo wing sauce.  Toss to coat.  You should also sample some, for quality assurance 😊 Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add one tortilla. Top with ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese (use more or less to your taste). Completely optional, but you can also add a … Continue reading

Sliders are one of my go-to ideas when it comes to meal prep.  I want something easy to make that will also last a few days.  Let me tell you, they are delicious!  If you’re unfamiliar with “sliders” they are basically small sandwiches that are served warm with various meats, cheeses, condiments and toppings (think finger sandwich size).  You can mix and match the sandwich ingredients to create different flavors and serve as an appetizer or entrée.  I like to make sliders for lunches.  Two of the mini sandwiches are the perfect sized lunch plus they hold up very well over the course of a few days and are perfectly tasty when reheated. I have 4 recipes to share with you today for sliders.  All are yummy in their own unique way! First up is Balsamic Dijon Ham Sliders.  All the flavor comes from the balsamic Dijon sauce.  It’s very … Continue reading

Taquitos are a fun hand-held treat that are crunchy and delicious.  You can customize the filling and change up the flavors to create different versions of the same dish and cook them in different ways.  They can be deep fried, baked in an oven or cooked in an air fryer.  I bet you could even use an Instant Pot, but I haven’t figured that recipe out yet 🙂 I’ve use Taquitos as both an appetizer and dinner.  They work well as an appetizer if you are hosting a party and want finger foods or if you plan to bring them to a potluck.  They are a quick grab-and-go item as you typically don’t need a plate or silverware.  Dinner is also an option if you want the Taquitos to be the main event. I think you can convert anything into Buffalo Chicken so that is the recipe I want to … Continue reading

Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese is a great one-pot meal that will blow your mind!  It’s a twist on traditional mac & cheese that is easy to make and done in minutes.  It’s super cream, full of tender chicken, and has a great spicy and tangy flavor from the addition of buffalo sauce. The recipe can be found here. Start by slicing the chicken into bite sized pieces.  Add the chicken to a bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Toss to coat all pieces. Turn on the sauté function of the Instant Pot.  Add a small amount of oil.  I like to use avocado oil or coconut oil, but olive oil works just as well.  Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.  Make sure to stir the chicken while it cooks so it doesn’t stick to the bowl of the Instant … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken is an obsession of mine and seems to be a very popular food item in general.  Most people I talk to have a favorite buffalo chicken dish of some kind.  I don’t know what it is that draws me back but it’s SO juicy and flavorful…. I could eat it every night of the week. Recently, we made Crock Pot Pulled Buffalo Chicken.  I have a long list of why I love this recipe but the gist of it is, it’s juice, spicy, simple to make, and absolutely delicious!  It can be a meal by itself or used in sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, dips, on pizza, and more.  We chose to use it in sandwiches.  It’s a crock pot meal and makes a healthy portion so you’ll be able to eat it for a few days or serve to a crowd. The recipe can be found here. Make … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bread is a meal in itself.  I typically think of buffalo chicken as an appetizer or side dish but could seriously make a loaf of this bread and eat the entire thing as a meal.  I probably wouldn’t feel the best after but at least I’d be happy, right? 🙂 All joking aside, this Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bread is amazing!  It’s huge flavor packed into a loaf of bread…. think creamy, cheesy, spicy and crunchy.  You get a little of each in every bite! The recipe can be found here. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven preheats, make the buffalo chicken dip and prepare the bread loaf. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese (softened), sour cream, mayo, hot sauce, ranch seasoning, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Add the blue cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and chicken.  … Continue reading
