Chicken and Dumplings

Who doesn’t like chicken noodle soup!?!? Well, since I am on a soup kick, why not continue?  This is my version of chicken and dumplings. When I was little we would roll out the dough and cut each noodle by hand. Such great memories and such a great soup. I have made a few tweaks…

Almond Crusted Chicken breast

I am always looking for a good/healthier  substitute to my favorite foods. Ones that are good enough I can convince my family  to eat them in lieu of their not so healthy favorites. The almond coating adds a crunch to the outside of the chicken without using bread crumbs. So, if you are trying to…

Stuffed Chicken Breast

I am sure you have heard it before, but chicken breast is a great source of lean protein.  It is however a very tricky meat to cook because it is easy to overcook, and undercooking can make you very sick. It doesn’t matter what you do to season it, a dry chicken breast is hard…
