Honey Sriracha Chicken

Are you a fan of sweet and spicy? SAME. This quickie marinade is now my go to for anything chicken. This time I tried it out on Chicken thighs!

  • 2 tablespoons of honey

  • 2 tablespoons of Sriracha (less if you want less spice)

  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 1 tsp garlic salt

  • 1tsp onion salt

  • a dash of seasoning salt

  • a little water if it needs to be thinned out.

Whisk ingredients together until a barbecue like texture forms. Add water if needed. I recommend marinading over night if you can but if not, take your chicken of choice (I used thighs) and coat it throughly in the sauce. Drop it in a hot pan with some olive oil over medium heat and cook until done. Serve with…ANYTHING.

Loaded Avocado Toast

Loaded Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is one of the easiest breakfast dishes you can make! I found a way to get some extra veggies in and still maintain the ease and the flavor.

  • One slice of bread

  • Half a ripe avocado

  • Mushrooms

  • Tomatoes

  • Spinach

  • One scrambled egg

  • Sriracha

Toast the bread and spread the avocado on the toast. Top with scrambled eggs. Cut up tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms and sautéed briefly in olive oil with salt and pepper, onion salt, a little garlic and whatever else you want! Cayenne pepper may be nice too ;) Add to the top of the scrambled egg and then FEAST. Add some sriracha on top if you want some spice!

Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet Potato Wedges

Cut one whole sweet potato into wedges. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder and a little seasoning salt. Drizzle with olive oil and bake on 400 for 20 minutes. If you want an extra crunch- broil for a few but watch them closely!

Sprinkle parsley on top and serve with a sriracha and ketchup combo!

Dairy and I do not get along. But recently I was craving Chicken alfredo and realized I could make some with Cauliflower!

 

I based my recipe on this one from a Pinch of Yum and varied it based on what I had in the kitchen!

  • 1 Tbsp of Garlic Powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 6-7 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (more to taste)
  • 1/2 cup milk (more to taste)

I sautéed the cauliflower florets in the olive oil and the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and onion salt and added them into boiling water for one minute. Then I added the the milk, one cup of water, and the cauliflower to a blender. I blended until creamy and served with sautéed chicken, broccoli and whole wheat noodles. BOWL LICKIN' GOOD!
