The other day I made chicken fajitas and of course the only side dish I could think to make with those is rice. So sticking with my pledge to eliminate boxed, pre-packaged foods from our lives, I found a great recipe to make my own Mexican rice.
Well another day, another awesome chicken recipe. As you may not know about me is that I’m a chicken fanatic. But plain, simple chicken can get very boring after a while. So, I’ve been forcing my husband and I to try some new flavors.
I made a minor error in my meal planning this week, I pretty much based all my meals off of grilling of some sort. That doesn’t exactly work out so well when it’s a rainy week and your grill is not sheltered. Luckily I had at least one non-grilling dinner planned so the other day became rainy day baked ziti.
Chicken is a staple in our house, especially grilled during summer months. But plain chicken gets so very boring. So to give it a little kick, I like to try different sauces and marinades.
Yesterday I gave this spicy maple barbecue sauce recipe a try. It takes a good while for this sauce to thicken up but you do end up with a nice and sweet sauce.
