I made this tonight for the 4th time since I discovered it on pinterest like a month ago. It’s blackened chicken with cilantro-lime quinoa.  It’s super delicious, and I imagine somewhat healthy!

We also make kebabs a lot.  Just marinate steak or chicken in this marinade for two hours and then put on skewers with bell peppers, mushrooms, grape tomatoes, or whatever else you want and grill.  Really, really good.  I’m a wimp, so I half the cayenne.  The first time I made these I made it with the full amount, and I drank a few too many beers because they were so spicy.

Pea or lentil soup are my favorite go to recipies. 

1 pkg split peas or lentil

1 onion diced

1 tomato diced

3 cloves garlic minced

1 tbsp chicken broth

thyme

salt pepper to taste

ghee (or oil, or lard)

water

Saute the onions and garlic in ghee in a dutch oven. Fill with water add peas (or lentils), tomato, broth and salt and pepper. Cook on med to med-low for 1 hour or so. Add thyme at end. I usually use a lot of salt, pepper, and thyme to give it a lot of flavor. This can also be made in a slow cooker.

You can add carrots, parsnips, potatoes, bacon, or sausage.

Another recipe that can done in a slow cooker is spicy chicken wings. It’s 1 jar of Hunts chili sauce and a jar of peach marmalade or other jam.

Tacos are a big go to. As is a baked chicken breast with roast vegetables (potato, asparagus, sweet potato and squash).

I also do a fair amount of stuffed pita pockets. Usually stuff with chicken marinaded in garlic, cumin, coriander and oregano, lettuce, cucumber and yoghurt.

Skinnytaste’s cajun chicken pasta recipe is AWESOME and only 300 some calories per serving. Highly recommended and easy to make!

If I’m trying to make something quick, I make our version of chicken divan (aka heavenly chicken – it’s a cream of chicken casserole with broccoli, chicken, cheddar cheese, and curry powder), or my current obsession, masaman curry – you just buy a little can of premade spice at the Asian food store (I like Maesri), saute the spice paste in coconut milk, and simmer your chicken, sweet potatoes, and onions in it. Serve with rice and peanuts – it’s delicious and easy.

We like to cook and do it together almost every night, so almost everything else we make takes a long time haha
