Copycat P. F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

We don’t eat at P.F. Chang’s much any more. Not because it isn’t awesome, but because where it is located. Crazy traffic, crazy people in crazy traffic. We avoid that area. The two things I miss the most are the Kung Pao Scallops and the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Even the Veggie Lettuce Wraps are awesome….

Cuban Chicken Chop, Yellow Rice, Black Beans with Chimichhurri

Here in Greenville, SC, where I live, we are blessed with amazing restaurants. Not just highfalutin, fancy ones, but an amazing array of all kinds. It really is crazy how many and with such variety. One such place has become a lunch time favorite, Tropical Chicken Grill. The food there is Cuban and comes at…

Panera’s Thai Chopped Chicken Salad Recipe

Chicken Parmesan with Arrabiata and Spaghetti Rigati

Basically he goes through his day repeating daily occurrences with the “Nationwide is on your side” theme. At one point…

Herb, Garlic, Lemon Roasted Chicken with Tuscan Farro Salad

Another example of “on hand” ingredients thrown together to a great result. The chicken is good. I’ve made it a ton. The salad, well I thought I had totally made it up until I started Googling it on the interwebs. It turned out to be a pretty common Tuscan thing, so there you have it….

Chicken, Shrimp and Udon Noodle Soup

My take on chicken noodle soup. This was an unbelievable throw together meal. The weather was chilly and we wanted something soothing and comforting. What’s more comforting than chicken noodle soup? I had some leftover rotisserie chicken, frozen shrimp, and box of udon noodles that had been in the cabinet for a while (I’ve been…

Thai Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza? I eat it just about twice a week (make it one night and leftovers another). Infinite possibilities exist with pizza and I enjoy trying to sample all of them. I bet I haven’t ordered pizza delivery in eight years. With the availability of quality ingredients and the fact that most grocery…
