- Honey Mustard Pretzel Crusted Chicken
Rebecca over atStrengthen and Sunshine has a titillating meal that only calls for THREE ingredients. That’s right. THREE! (Who knew you could even make something that wasn’t from the box that had such few ingredients?) You really can’t get any easier than that! Her Honey Mustard Pretzel Crusted Chicken gives a good crunch while combining the sweet and salty mix that is sure to please every crowd. Plus, her simple to follow instructions make it super easy to make.
- Orange Chicken
In the mood for some Asian dishes? Then you need to hop over toSheena’s site at Noshtastic for some savory Orange Chicken! Don’t let the preparation time fool you, though. More than half that time is spent marinating the chicken—which means you don’t have to do much else. Just let that chicken do all the work and absorb all the yummy ingredients on its own. The blend between the ginger and the orange juice really comes together to give your mouth a good zangy kick. And if you’re someone who eats strictly paleo, she even provides alternatives for your diet! Serve it over a bed of cauliflower rice and you’re good to go!
- Rustic Kale Soup wit Sausage and Sweet Potatoes
For the particularly cold days, maybe you need something to warm you up instantly, like a nice bowl of soup! If that’s the case, then you need to try thisRustic Kale Soup with Sausage and Sweet Potatoes from Sheena over at The Gluten Free Goddess. Don’t worry, you’ll be satisfied after eating this hearty soup with a fun and spicy kick to it. And if you’re feeling extra Jolly, you may want to serve these gluten-free Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls as a nice companion to your soup. They’re light and fluffy, and taste divine! You’d never know they don’t contain any gluten. She suggests using an almond blend flour that helps make them super tasty (And yes, there is even a dairy-free version recipe for them!)
- Bacon Wrapped Scallops Pasta
Seafood lovers will fall head over heels for this Bacon Wrapped Scallops Pasta from Regina over at LeeLaLicious. (And let’s be honest, is there anything that doesn’t taste good that’s been wrapped in bacon?) This one scores extra points for masking yummy vegetables in it, too! Her alfredo-like sauce is made from cauliflower. (Your kids wont have any idea they’re eating something healthy!) We love the easy to follow step-by-step video, and Regina also provides great alternatives to make your dish dairy-free as well!
- Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore
If you’re one of those crazy busy people constantly on the go, then this last recipe is sure to be your favorite. Taryn at JoyFilledEats provides a simple low-cost recipe for Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore. With only a few minutes of prep, and a good stir in the crockpot, you can go enjoy your day, and then come home several hours later to a nice warm meal.
