Chicky-Chicky-Parm, Chicky-Chicky-Parm

Chicken Parm

Have I ever mentioned that my brothers are a little bit silly? Yeah, they used to sing “Chicky-Chicky-Parm, Chicky-Chicky-Parm” whenever my mom would make us Chicken Parmesan. And they always did it with this incredibly catchy but annoying rhythm to it. So now I’m cursed because what I think of every time I have Chicken Parmesan!!

Here is an easy and “lighter” (i.e. not fried) version of this dish that you can make in the crock pot. It even came out pretty crispy on the top. Don’t ya just love it when things are easy AND delicious?!

Chicken Squares

Chicken Squares

Here is a recipe from my husband’s side of the family. As I may have mentioned before, my mother-in-law is an amazing cook. She found the inspiration for this recipe in a magazine when my husband was a baby. It’s evolved over the years into a family favorite, which my husband made for me for the very first time this week. Let’s just say, I’m a believer in Chicken Squares now. The crusty, flaky, buttery pastry opens to reveal a molten hot filling of creamy, cheesy, fragrant chicken. Be careful, because these little babies are addictively good.

Get ready because I am about to introduce you to the best chicken nuggets of your LIFE! Step aside, Chick-fil-A – these are freakin’ awesome!

I made this recipe up on the fly with a new seasoning mixture that I had been wanting to try out – a new jar of Herbes de Provence – absolutely delicious, extremely aromatic, and a perfect compliment to chicken.

Chicken ‘n’ Dumplings!

This is one of my all-time favorite meals to make. Back when I was a single gal, this was my go-to dinner when I was cooking for one. It’s easy to scale to the number of portions you need. The soft, fluffy, doughy dumplings are so comforting, and the chicken and veggies complete the perfect meal.

Buttermilk Chicken

My mom has been making this dinner for our family my whole life. She got the recipe from her good friend Bobbie Kearns. The chicken comes out so tender and the creamy tang of the buttermilk sauce compliments the chicken AND the rice and veggies that you choose to serve it with!

Southwestern White Chili

This recipe is very versatile and is a great one for using up leftover chicken or turkey. It’s also a pretty lean and nutritious meal that could easily be frozen so that you can have it ready to heat up on a busy winter evening! My dad is absolutely in love with this stuff.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

This recipe is inspired by my wonderful friends – it’s sort of a blend of the recipes that you all sent me! I took it to hubby’s family Christmas celebration on Sunday, and it was a HUGE hit – people just couldn’t stop talking about it and asking me for the recipe! It always feels good when you find a recipe that gets that sort of attention. So here it is!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I was inspired to make chicken tortilla soup one cold and rainy night this week. I had most of the ingredients on hand to make the base for a soup, and just added some of hubby’s and my favorite “Mexican” ingredients. It turned out wonderfully.
