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!

If you download the app you will get $3 to spend! (and then I get $3 too and everyone wins!)

 

Happy feasting!

Energy Bites

Energy Bites

Recipe from Mind Body Green

  • 1 cup soft Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free, if necessary)
  • ½ cup creamy sunflower seed butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of water, only if necessary to blend
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation

1. Process Medjool dates in a food processor until a sticky and creamy consistency is formed (may form a ball). Add in oats, sun butter, cinnamon, and vanilla and process until well-combined. If the dough is dry, you may add a few tablespoons of water to help everything stick together.

2. Gently pulse in the chocolate chips, just until they are well-incorporated into the dough.

3. Use your hands to form the dough into balls. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set. Enjoy!
