Red & Green Mole Chicken Enchiladas with Spanish Yellow Rice

I found this recipe from Chef Tyler Florence at The Food Network. The recipe calls for a Mexican Spice Blend, so I used the one from Genuis Kitchen. I love eating my enchiladas with yellow Spanish rice, which I found the recipe also from Genuis Kitchen. However, Chef Tyler’s recipe called for corn, green chiles, and chipotle…

Thai Lettuce Wraps

My mom couldn’t stop raving over this recipe. She loves The Cheesecake Factory’s Thai lettuce wraps and said this recipe tasted just like them. I like to add both sauces in my lettuce wrap at a time, but you’re open to assemble your wrap any way you’d like. This recipe is great because it’s pretty…

Honey Sriracha Chicken

My brother found this recipe online and knew he had to have it that night. We already had all the ingredients so it worked out well. We figured we wanted a crunch to it as well, so we sliced up a red and yellow bell pepper then added it in at the end. It was delicious…

Thai Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

This was my first time cooking with coconut milk. It’s delicious. What’s nice about coconut milk is it’s super healthy, plus it gives a unique flavor you can’t really get from anywhere else. I got this recipe from Thai Kitchen. I used their brand of coconut milk. This recipe is so easy; less than 10 ingredients…

Thai Peanut Teriyaki Chicken

I came up with this recipe by incorporating some of my favorite Asian meals during my first year of living off-campus during college. I always have all the ingredients in the house, so it’s convenient when you don’t know what to make for dinner the evening of. The preparation time varies, depending on how long you want…

Chicken Francese

I grew up eating this as a regular school night dinner. This is my mom’s recipe, but I added lemon juice from a container instead of juice from real lemons, because it’s more affordable for me and it’s easier than having fresh produce in the house (I still have not mastered having only fresh produce, plus it’s…

Light Chicken Marsala with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I’m not a big fan of mushrooms, but this recipe my mother revamped with sun-dried tomatoes gives it a lot of flavor, and using Lipton’s onion and mushroom mix still gives it that Marsala taste. It’s easy to make on a weeknight and really light because the chicken isn’t breaded. Chef Paul’s poultry seasoning is my…

Tex-Mex Chicken Fajitas

I grew up loving this recipe more than authentic Mexican fajitas. It’s greasy, it’s messy and boy, is it delicious. I prefer to eat this with rice on the side, but you may like to mix the rice with the chicken and make it almost into a burrito. Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes…

Turkey Chili

Growing up, my family was never a huge fan of chili, until one day a family friend made it at a BBQ and we all fell in love. This is that recipe. The secret isn’t just using turkey meat, which makes it healthier, but also adding dark chocolate that really gives it a richness no…

Garlic Chicken Pasta Alfredo

I love Alfredo sauce. However, my college roommate thinks it’s too bland on it’s own, so adding garlic and seasoned chicken is the best route when cooking for us. This doesn’t take much time at all after a work day. I just need to make sure I have (unspoiled) heavy cream in my fridge, then I’m…

Light Sesame Chicken

I always wondered what sesame sauce was made from, like, who knew there was honey in it? But it was so delicious, it only took 20 minutes from prep to plate, and I definitely plan on making it again soon. This is also the light version, using only corn starch and egg whites as the coating on…
