 This is a recipe that I had been meaning to make for awhile but my grocery store seemed to not have green chilies so I had to go to another store to pick them up which seemed to take me forever. Now I wish I had done it much sooner!

This recipe was awesome and definitely one I will make again.

I made the chicken in the slow cooker on low for 6 hours to get it ready and I highly recommend making this specific chicken as it had so much flavour. Once out of the slow cooker I shredded the chicken and then drained it to get off the extra water based sauce so that the burrito didn't have too much sogginess. 

I topped the chicken with a mexican cheese before folding them up. I didn't add in any extra toppings but it would be awesome if you wanted to.

The green chili sauce is so tasty and I loved it! The sauce wasn't too thick when I initially put it on the burritos but it did thicken up after.

Chicken Francese

 This was a recipe that looked unique and I really like the recipes I have previously made from this blog so I decided to give it a try.

I cut the chicken breasts that I had in half lengthwise to make them flatter which worked really well. I had never put egg on the outside of the breast after using flour so it was definitely something new for me. I liked how it kept the chicken nice and juicy. 

I didn't realize until after I had begun cooking that I didn't have any white wine so I used extra chicken broth. My sauce also didn't seem to thicken very well so that is something I would have to try again and see if I could get it right. I'm not sure where I went wrong with it. 

That being said the chicken was still really delicious and I will be trying it again to get it right!

The Best Baked BBQ Hennessy Wings Recipe

This was a recipe that sounded awesome but I didn't have any Hennessy at home so I decided to switch it out for Bourbon instead.

Now I also decided to use a Chicken & Rib rub instead of the different spices because it was something I already had on hand and I am trying to use up more of those ingredients.

I love that these wings are baked and not fried but in all honesty there would be no way to tell with how incredible these turned out.

These had so much flavour and all three of us devoured them and I wished I had made more. 

This is a recipe I will definitely be making again!

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

 I was super excited to give this recipe a try as I love rice krispies and peanut butter is one of my very favorite things in the world!

I followed the recipe as directed and everything was super straightforward.

I liked adding in the m&m's into the rice krispies as it made them super colorful and fun to look at. I also liked the chocolate and peanut butter top.

Now the only thing I would have done differently is added more marshmallows as we found these crumbled and fell apart with every bite. They were good but didn't have that marshmallow texture that we love so much. I'm not sure why they fell apart so easily but we were disappointed.

I would try making it again with adding more marshmallows.

Skillet Chicken Nachos

 I love trying new things in the skillet as it almost makes it seem more fun. That being said it is definitely something that is new to me and for certain things I am still trying to figure out all the ins and outs.

I love the idea of nachos in the skillet and being able to layer everything up but I do think this is something that I really need to figure out more.

I find that the chips and ingredients on the bottom get really cooked and that the stuff on top doesn't so I would love some input if anyone has any!

Anyhow, the nachos themselves were good when you got those perfect chips. There was more good ones that not but I still can't figure out how to cook the layers evenly. 

We used a pre-shredded chicken, beans, corn and onion as toppings and they were very tasty. The kids aren't huge fans of beans but I still like trying to put them on for that extra protein!

Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Tacos with Candied Jalapeno and Bacon

 This was a recipe that looked so good to me but Mikaela will not each shrimp except for in sushi so I knew that I would have to wait for a night where it was just Bren and I. After trying this recipe I wish I had tried it sooner as it was amazing!

Now it does take awhile to make as there are many parts of it that come together to make such a masterpiece.

I started off by making the candied jalapenos. I only had about a pound of jalapenos so I did a third of the recipe. I was surprised at how good it made the jalapenos and I could now tolerate them! That being said I cut them with gloves on and my eyes did water. I had a really bad jalapeno experience years ago so it is very rare that I actually bring them into the house!

Next I marinated the shrimp in the homemade teriyaki sauce. These were so good and simple. I loved how much flavor they held! As the shrimp was marinating I began the salsa. I cut up everything and then once the pineapple went on the bbq we were good to go.

We cooked the pineapple on the bbq and then once that was done we moved onto the shrimp. 

I used a chipotle mayonnaise on the tacos and then we used a coleslaw mix and then topped with feta cheese! 

These are so delicious and well worth the effort!

Chicken Ranch Macaroni and Cheese

 There are some days where I feel like I am the only person in the house who craves comfort food and that for me is Mac and Cheese. There are those times where I just want a basic mac and cheese but of course I need to try new things so this recipe looked amazing as it has so many of my favorite things!

I really liked mixing the chicken with the ranch dressing ahead of time so that each piece of chicken had ranch flavoring to it and you could really taste it. I also love cooking bacon in the stove as it cooks so much better and in the long run really saves time when you are getting other things done at the same time. 

I did use a 1% milk instead of whole milk as that was what I had on hand so I'm sure it wasn't as creamy as it could have been but it was still really good.

This is a recipe I would make again as I loved the combination of flavors!
