Greek Chicken Hash

Greek Chicken

This recipe Greek Chicken Hash  comes from one of my favorite blogs, Health Bent.  They have healthy Primal/Paleo type recipes.  The common theme is that they all taste amazing!

I changed this up a tad, added a little more peperoncini since I like it hot, also added a little peperoncini juice and about 1/2 cup chicken broth to make more sauce (Remember, I am a sauce girl!  I also added about 1/2 bag of baby spinach at the end of the cooking (it was begging to be used and it’s healthy!).  Click here for the recipe.  Greek Chicken Hash Recipe.  Enjoy!!!

 

Italian Wedding Soup

italian wedding soup 2

This soup is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Back to Basics by Ina Garten.  When you are craving a hot comforting bowl of soup, this is a satisfying, healthy option.  I always make a double batch and freeze the rest.

Cook whatever pasta you want on the side.  If you add it to the pan, the leftovers won’t freeze well and get really soggy.  I tend to grab whatever pasta is open and needs to be used up.  In this case, I cut up some spaghetti.  You can skip the pasta if you are Gluten free or Paleo.  Continue reading Italian Wedding Soup

Mexican Crockpot Chicken Quesadillas

You know those days you just don’t have time to make dinner?  Or those days when you don’t feel like cooking?  Or are you one of my friends that hates to cook?  Then people this is the recipe for you!  It tastes fantastic, is so easy it shouldn’t even count as “cooking”, it’s healthy and your house will smell fabulous all day.  I made it yesterday for Dinner and when Brian walked in the house he asked if we were having tacos for dinner.  You can use the mexican mixture a lot of different ways.  Last night Bill had it on rice, I had it as a soft taco on a tortilla and Brian had it on a hard taco shell.  Today, I made a quick-lunch for Bill and I using the leftover chicken mixture as a base for some fantastic quesadillas.  Looking at this photo now, I could have another.  Look at that melted cheese…..yummy!   Enjoy :)  Continue reading Mexican Crockpot Chicken Quesadillas

Sausage and Beans One Dish Dinner

003

This is a great weeknight one dish dinner.  The recipe is very forgiving.  Don’t have wine?  Double the stock.  Like beans a lot?  Add 2 cans.  I usually make 1/2 chicken sausage and 1/2 pork as Bill hates the chicken sausage.  I like to serve it with a salad and a spoon to make sure to get all the sauce!   Continue reading Sausage and Beans One Dish Dinner
