Skinny Shrimp and Broccoli (even for those that dont like broccoli)




I started making this when i was doing meal prep and wanted a variety in the fridge. My husband loved this so much and he does not even like broccoli!
Ingredients
  • sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Separately needed Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and de-veined 
  • 4 cups(ish) broccoli florets
Directions
  1. For the sauce:
    whisk together the soy sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and cornstarch in a bowl
  2. To cook:
    Heat the sesame oil (1 1/2 tablespoons) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once warm, add in the shrimp and stir constantly until pink - about 4 minutes. Add in the broccoli and continue cooking until the broccoli is bright green and tender; about 3-4 minutes. Add in the liquid mixture, stir well to coat the shrimp and broccoli, and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. 

Eat over rice to make it go further. This is a great make ahead meal for meal prep weeks.

Let me know if you've made this and what you have/would change!

Easy Hot Wings - My favorite Hot Wing Recipe



Ever since i got pregnant 7 mos ago, I constantly have the craving for hot wings. I usually make my own sauce, but for this recipe I used already made store bought wing sauce that I had in the cabinet. These are the best hot wings I have ever made and Im considering making more for lunch tomorrow.

For 6 wings, you will need:
1/2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
(I also threw in some cajun seasoning I had from back home Louisiana)
Wing Sauce

-Preheat oven to 450°-Rinse chicken under water and drain
-Whisk together flower and seasoning in a bowl
-On a cookie sheet, line with foil and spray with non stick spray
-Dip the raw chicken into the flour mixture, and lay on the cookie sheet
-Bake for 20 minutes, flip and bake for another 20 minutes
-Once baking is complete, add wings to a bowl and pour wing sauce over it.
(I use a bowl with a lid, and close the bowl and shake the chicken inside so the sauce gets all over, but thats just me)




results were amazing!
If you try this recipe, please let me know how it turned out, or what you altered to make it yours!

Crock Pot Sour Cream Chicken with Stuffing

Ok, so I'm HORRIBLE at remembering to take pictures...but I'm going to make it up to you by sharing this recipe  that takes 5 minutes to make. Best part is, it's OK to put this chicken into your crock pot straight out of the freezer!



Crock Pot Sour Cream Chicken with Stuffing


Ingredients:

1       can cream of chicken

4              chicken breast halves

½             cup sour cream

1              packet (or box) chicken stuffing

1              can water



Directions:

Mix water, sour cream and cream of chicken in small bowl

Place chicken in crockpot

Pour chicken stuffing over chicken

Add fluid mixture

Cook low for 4 hours

Keep an eye out, as I always need more water throughout cooking, but don’t add too much or it will make your stuffing runny

EASY Chicken Casserole



This is a favorite of my husbands, and it's really easy to make!

This recipe is so easy -- no need to get wrapped around the axle on measurements of the ingredients -- just do portions as you see fit for your family. Some like more chicken, some like more noodles.

You will need:
1. Chicken, shredded (your own or some already hot and ready from the grocery store)
2. 1 can cream of chicken (see my recipe for home made cream of chicken here)
3. Yolk noodles, boiled
4. Cheddar cheese, i like to use kraft slices of cheese but shredded is fine too
5. French fried onions

Directions:
Mix chicken, cream of chicken and noodles in a bowl

Place in 8x8 (or larger if youre making more) Pyrex dish

Add cheese and put in oven @ 350 for 5-10 mins, or until cheese is melted

Add French Fried Onions and enjoy.
