Southwest Chicken Salad

Southwest Chicken SaladI love salads.  This is one of my favorites and I make it a lot in the summer.  You can work with whatever you have on hand.  If I have left over corn on the cob in the summer, I will slice it off the cob and add it to salads.  I also like to have some black beans in as well.  You can add any vegetables you like, use up what’s in that produce drawer!

You want to make sure you season the chicken really well so that each bite has some of the Cajun seasoning on it.   Enjoy! Continue reading Southwest Chicken Salad

Chicken Enchiladas

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie.  It is super easy to make and the sauce tastes really rich and creamy but it’s still light from just using low-fat cream cheese.   I will make this the day ahead when I know it will be a busy day and just pop it in the oven for a quick dinner.  Add a salad and you are good to go.  The leftovers are great too (if you have any) :) Continue reading Chicken Enchiladas

Fusilli with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Chicken

fusilli with sundried tomatoes and chicken

I have a secret……..I have a new love in my life….De Cecco pasta.  Any kind.  OMG.  Yes, it’s that good.  I tried it last week for the first time, spaghetti.  It was life changing.  Serious.  If you had told me before a brand of dried pasta could totally make the difference I would believe you..to a point.  However, this De Cecco cooks absolutely perfect, the texture is amazing.  It is imported from Italy and just amazing.  I used to be a Barilla fan, but no more, De Cecco all the way for me now!!

This is a great recipe, if you like sun dried tomatoes, I highly encourage you to make this! Continue reading Fusilli with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Chicken
