One pan chicken and rice

I am on a roll of easy, as few steps as possible recipes these days. Between moving yet again to a new place, finding my steps in a French speaking town, going back to school to learn a new trade and not breaking my neck in the ice and snow outside, I am tired. But… Continue reading One pan chicken and rice


Perfect Grilled Chicken Breast

My husband is the ‘man meet grill’ kinda guy. Rain or shine, he is ready to jump outside and char us some meat. Since we (ahem) tend to find ourselves living in remote, frozen locations because of our (ahem) jobs, it is a good thing he isn’t thermally challenged. This chicken recipe is a must… Continue reading Perfect Grilled Chicken Breast

Slow Cooker Succulent Turkey Breast

It really can't get easier then this, or more delicious. Slices from this turkey breast recipe feed my family for days, are great warm or cold (my personal favorite) and make kick ass sandwiches, salads and stir-frys. It is very tasty serves warm with mashed potatoes, but even better chilled overnight, then thinly sliced. Love… Continue reading Slow Cooker Succulent Turkey Breast

Slow cooker Chicken in wine and mushrooms

I should really be fancy and call this dish something along the lines of "Coq au vin blanc et champignons". Doesn't everything sound better in French? It does, if you take a moment to ignore my accent. French pronunciation aside, this dish does, excuse my French, kicks b*tt. It is rich, comforting and elegant. A perfect company… Continue reading Slow cooker Chicken in wine and mushrooms

Baby Countdown #6 Slow-cooker Spanish Style Chicken breast

Last night I thought that was it. Labor I mean. I have been contracting every ten minutes since 8 PM, and throughout most of the night. Not being able to get any shut eye, I lovingly suffered the increasingly intense labor pains and waited for the desired 5 minutes mark. Which of course never came.… Continue reading Baby Countdown #6 Slow-cooker Spanish Style Chicken breast

Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry

This delicious chicken curry recipe is dairy free, relatively low fat (yes, I know there is coconut milk in there but I did skip on the butter, cream and heavy yogurt) and definitely hassle free. It couldn't be easier to prepare. Similar to my Hungarian stew recipe, all the ingredients except the chicken are pulverized to form a… Continue reading Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry

Slow cooker Greek style Chicken and Potatoes

 This easy and flavorful dish was the fruit of my efforts last week to clear my fridge and freezer from a myriad of forgotten ingredients. It really doesn't get much easier than this. Just pop the potatoes and chicken in the crock, brush with some sauce and wait. The only laborious part is skinning the legs,… Continue reading Slow cooker Greek style Chicken and Potatoes

Grandma’s braised chicken

  Lately I find myself craving (and cooking) comfort foods. Maybe it's the weather. Or the lack of sleep. Perhaps it's spending the holiday so far away from my family. Whatever it may be, I long for simple, good dishes that warm you from the inside out. My grandmother passed away recently, at the advanced age… Continue reading Grandma’s braised chicken
