Chicken and Rice Parmesan


We found this recipe. I have no idea where or how long ago. What I do remember though, is that we wrote it on a piece of paper and stuck it in a notebook. For the longest time I never made it. Suddenly one day I decided that it was time to try it. I sat there and wondered, why in the world did I never make it before? It’s amazing. My family gobbled it up. There was nothing left! I was happy about this, but sad too. Only because I didn’t get to have it for lunch the next day.

All Purpose Marinade


I love chicken. It’s my second favorite love. I love my grill too. What I love about this recipe is it’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s salty, it just blends well. I invited a cub scout parent over once while he was having a rough time after a separation. We were just trying to be nice. Now every time I see this fellow, he says…About that chicken! LOL

3/4 cup soy sauce

1/3 Cup lemon juice

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon black pepper

2 large garlic cloves

Chicken, Beef, or Pork. You could possibly use another meat, but I’ve not tried it.


Add all ingredients together.




Marinade 8-24 hours. Grill or bake


BBQ Chicken Nachos


Eight years of marriage and my husband takes me to this restaurant called Copper River Grill. We had this really sweet waitress named Denae. She suggested we try these BBQ chicken nachos. We did and we loved them. We decided to try to cook it ourselves at home and maybe we could reminisce about our sweet eight year anniversary.

1 bag tortilla chips

3 chicken breasts

Mexican dipping cheese

1 bottle of bbq sauce


Mix 1/2 cup water with half a bottle of BBQ. Add the chicken. Cook in crockpot for 6-8 hours. Separate into chunks and add back to bbq sauce. Add tortillas to a plate and heat in microwave for about 40 seconds. Also prepare the Mexican dipping sauce per directions.

Monterey Chicken


Monterey chicken is the best thing that I’ve ever eaten. I love it. The guys love it too. The first time I went to make it, I asked my husband to light the grill. He goes to light the grill and it wouldn’t light. so he decided to light it from below. Big mistake. He ended up with the ends of his hair, eyebrows, and eye lashes being singed. It was so funny.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken


I like this recipe. I used to make it ALL the time. Then I made it so much that I just didn’t want it anymore. That tells you how much we were cooking this dish. Eventually, I came across it again and decided to make it. I remembered how much I loved the recipe. It’s a recipe that you do need to play with. It has some heat to it from the vinegar. Some people like to add a small amount, while others like to bring more heat.

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/3 cup Sugar

1 tablespoon Water

1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup Soy sauce

3 cloves Garlic

1/2 teaspoon Ginger

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix sugar and cornstarch. Add water and mix. Add garlic and ginger and mix. Add soy sauce and cider vinegar. Mix well and heat until thick. Put chicken into a pan and top with sauce. Bake 350 degrees until chicken is finished.  Make sure to pour sauce over chicken often.

She is older now and she doesn’t do as much as she used to, but I did get handed a bunch of her recipes. She taught me to make each of the one’s I have. The great thing about having her recipes is no matter where life takes me I have her with me.
