CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Feta and Black Olives

CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Black Olives and Feta Cheese

Olives are ubiquitous at my house. They’re always on the table. Special occasions call for olives. Sundays call for olives. We eat olives just about every day. My kids’ favorite part of black olives is putting them on their fingers and pretending to be monsters. I’m not saying you have to do that to make this recipe, but if you feel so inclined, it definitely adds to the charm. Anyway, we tried this recipe recently and loved it. After a day in the crock-pot, the chicken is fall apart tender, the potatoes are perfect, and the feta and olives add … Read more

Quick and Easy Gluten-Free Cheesy Chicken with Black Beans and Rice

Quick and Easy Gluten-Free Cheesy Chicken with Salsa Beans and Rice

This recipe was inspired by the Cheesy Chicken Monterrey that I shared two weeks ago. That recipe was part of a program sponsored by Knorr Recipe Sides. The idea was to create a full meal around one of their pasta and rice side dishes. It worked really well, and the result was a flavorful, quick and easy meal. Unfortunately, I couldn’t eat the finished dish because Knorr Recipe Sides are pasta and rice mixed together. Good for flavor, bad for gluten-free diners. The recipe is so easy that making it gluten-free was really simple. Joe doubled the ingredients for the … Read more

Quick and Easy Cheesy Chicken Monterey with Beans and Rice

This post is brought to you by Giant Eagle. All opinions are 100% mine. When both parents work, you need quick and easy meals to get through the week. It’s just a fact. We don’t have time to spend 2 or 3 hours every afternoon prepping and cooking a meal. I know that to be the case for many stay-at-home moms as well. Whether you homeschool or shuttle kids from piano to soccer, many moms and dads have busy afternoons. Again, not at all conducive to spending a long time in the kitchen. Enter Knorr Sides – and the complete dinners … Read more

Easy Swiss Cheese Chicken Recipe

Easy Swiss Cheese Chicken Recipe

I spent more than ten years as a vegetarian. During that time, I learned quite a bit about common agricultural practices, and I was not thrilled. Pigs unable to lie down in their stalls, chickens stacked 5 cages high, animals that never see sunshine or grass. I can’t support that. I’ll eat meat, but I don’t want to eat that meat. A couple years ago, we discovered a local family who raises chickens and sells their extra eggs. We were giddy to find them; they even gave us a tour of the animals, enclosures, and feeding methods. We left knowing exactly how … Read more

BBQ Chicken Waffle Sandwiches – Updated Chicken & Waffles

BBQ Chicken Waffle Sandwhices

It’s a Week of Waffles at Feels Like Home! Being that I’m a Chief Waffle Officer, I’ll be posting waffle recipes featuring Eggo Waffles all week – from April 1 to April 7. I’ll share some breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert recipes, so make sure you come back each day for my most recent creation!

I knew I wanted to try some variation of chicken and waffles during our Week … Read more

Nut-Crusted Chicken Fingers (Gluten-Free)

nut crusted chicken fingers recipe

Eating gluten-free is not as hard as I expected it would be. We’ve been eating normally for the most part since I went gluten-free. We have cut out most of our pasta and bread, having gluten-free pasta only twice (it wasn’t that good) and no gluten-free bread. We’ve modified some recipes and used our gluten-free flour blends quite a bit. I am pain-free, though I can’t be sure whether it’s because I’m gluten-free, because I wear hand/wrist braces to bed every night, or because the medicine my rheumatologist gave me is finally working. It’s probably a combination of all three. … Read more
