Chicken Philly Cheesesteak


I’m in love. This is soooo good. I tried it two different ways. First I ate it just like this- then another day I ate it and put it in a low carb tortilla. Everyone loved it. I’ve been asked to make it again, several times. I’ve been back on the wagon. I’m trying to lose weight. I think my biggest issue is that I try to do fast. That usually ends up processed, or take out. I’m struggling, but I’m for sure getting back on track. I’m determined it’s happening. I found this recipie at easy health llc

4 pieces of chicken (I prefer thin sliced)

2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

black pepper

1/2 chopped onion

1/2 a green bell pepper chopped

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

cheese of your choice

slice chicken into small thin pieces. mix worcestershire, onion and garlic powder, and add pepper to taste. Cover chicken. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to a skillet. Add chicken and cook to brown. Remove. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil and onions, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook to tender. Add chicken and mix. Cover with cheese until melted.

Ginger Garlic Chicken


I really like to try new things. This was given to me from a friend and I thought I’d give it a try. It looks great, but I made a mistake and used the  low sodium soy sauce. It was a mistake. It needed more salt. I think having regular soy sauce would be better. Next time I plan to try it. I also wonder about adding the cornstarch later. I tried to adapt this from a crockpot recipe. I’ll say overall it was really good. My guys ate all of it, but I had to salt it. I was expecting a rich spicy taste because of the garlic and the large amount of ginger, but it’s not. It’s actually great.

I really hope ya’ll like this!!

Herb BBQ Chicken



I found this recipe in a 1960’s cookbook. It’s interesting. I didn’t marinade it as long, but I wish I had. I think it’d have tasted much better. It was bland in the middle. I really wish I had done that. I could kick myself….but hey you learn. I only did an hour because well…time and it has vinegar and usually that can be a really strong if you marinade too long.

I was talking about getting stuff cleaned up around here, because we are trying to move. Selling a home is so much work. That isn’t cool ugh. Anyway, I’m dreading this a lot, because if it’s anything like Christmas stuff, I left the attic with my hair soaked because I was sweated so much. I just want the house to look good when people come look at it. My house is really like a farmhouse. Everyone likes it, so I’m hoping it’ll sell quickly. Now if only we can find something we like, so we can buy it.

2/3 cup canola oil

1/2 cup wite vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teasspoon thme

1/4 teaspoon marjoram

1 garlic clove

Chicken pieces

Garlic gravy and chicken


I have moments when I want to cook so much. Then there’s other moments when I drag my feet so much that cooking is out of the question.  Tonight, I wanted to cook.  I wanted something easy and this popped into my mind. I wanted something good. Unfortunately, I had an unwanted visitor from my past which totally ruined my appetite. I never understand people. It’s so weird. Enough about that though, it doesn’t even deserve acknowledgement.

I like this recipe, because it’s so simple. It makes it where I can multi task and it takes very little time. I used thin cut chicken breasts. It literally took 15 minutes and dinner was served. If you give this a try- let me know! I’d be interested to see how you like it. Coop LOVED it!

2 tablespoons canola oil

chicken pieces

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

2 tablespoons all purpose flour

3/4 cups white wine

1 cup chicken broth

3/4 teaspoons dried thyme

2 tablespoons butter

Put oil in a dutch oven. Salt and pepper the chicken. Place in dutch oven and brown. Once browned remove from pan and place in a plate. Put garlic in pan until browned. Mix in the flour and stir. Put in the chicken broth. Once thickened, add back the chicken and pour juices into pan. Cover and cook until chicken is done all the way through. Add white wine and cook until thickened. Add thyme and butter. Serve.

Orange Chicken


It snowed last weekend. It was horrible. I wasn’t able to leave. We had 14 inches in some places, 16 in others. It was a lot of snow for here. The last time we had that much snow was 18 + inches in 1993. I remember that snow. It was crazy. We did lose power this go around. It wasn’t for a long time, but it was like 5 hours.

It upsets me a little, because my hubby has occupational therapy tomorrow, but I’m worried about taking him. I’m afraid to drive in the bad weather. I’m going to call my dad in the morning and see if he’ll take him for me. I just don’t want to  injure him more if I were to have a car accident.

We may be going in for another surgery, unless his wrist heals. Hopefully, it wont take too long to happen and we can skip the surgery all together. Hope that happens!!


4 pieces chicken

Sweet Asian Chicken


I really love this. It’s probably my new favorite recipe. It’s spicy- it’s sweet…it’s delicious.

Today was crazy. I had so much school work. I finally finished my work. I had two tests to do. It took forever. I’m in a class called Intro to Religions. I really like it. This chapter was on Hinduism. I’ve always been really interested in other religions.

It’s been a long day and as I sit here my mind feels so blank. It might be the first time in a while that I felt that way. I’m not complaining though. Sometimes you just need moments of quiet.

I’ve started to limit Coop on his video games. I noticed he had a bad attitude. He was having problems going to bed on time. He just in general wasn’t doing so hot. We’ll see how that goes!

4 lbs chicken

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 teaspoon curry powder

3 Tablespoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

Combine sugar, soy, lime, curry, garlic and red pepper flakes. Marinade chicken. Can freeze. Thaw completely before use if frozen. Grill and baste in sauce.

BBQ Crusted Chicken


A while back I used to buy old cookbooks from this antique store that they’d sell for 1.00 each. They sadly don’t do that anymore. Which is a good thing, but it’s a bad thing, because man what a deal I’d get!!! So I find this poultry cookbook and I buy it. It’s an ok cookbook. It’s not my favorite. I’ve found a few recipes that I really like out of it though.

This one I have passed by 100 times. I mean seriously….bbq sauce…cornflakes?? uhm….am I the only one who is thinking how weird?

I kept Coop home from school today. He wasn’t feeling well. He was having some sinus issues. Poor kiddo. He just really needed a resting day. So we all were lazy today and hung out around the house. I worked on some homework…and that was that.

Chicken (you can use bone in or boneless)

1/3 cup bbq chicken

4 cups crushed cornflakes

Roll bbq sauce onto the chicken. Then roll in the cornflakes. Line a baking dish or cookie sheet with foil. Spray the foil and put the chicken on it. Bake until cooked through.
