It’s a weeknight dinner win with this super easy and flavorful Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken that’s just as delicious as it is easy!
Summerrrrrr! I know you’re out there. We saw a glimmer of it in May, but lately it’s been cool and drizzly and much more Spring like than summer. No matter, in this household there is no grilling “season.” You’ll find my husband next to the grill in the snow, sleet, rain, wind, hurricane, tornado, tsunami, zombie apocalypse… Man loves his grill. And I love giving him all the things to grill, like this new Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken!
Fresh Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken. It just sounds like it took a lot of time, doesn’t it? Bah. It’s way easier that you’d think and it tastes like you slaved away for it.
You guys already know how much we love chicken dinners in this house. But usually it’s either thrown in the trusty Crock Pot or baked. I have no idea why, but for some reason we hardly ever braise it… until now. This Green Bean and Mushroom Braised Chicken has seriously upped our chicken dinner game!
1. Dear Crock Pot, I love you. 2. Sometimes, I look back on our lives about 5 months ago and think about when I said we were “so busy,” and laugh and say, “Ooh you silly silly kids.” Needless to say, having a baby drastically alters your concept of the word “busy.” In addition to the adorable little human who eats, poops, and drools all of the time, throw in a couple of Daycare plagues (seriously I had no idea what a little cesspool daycare would be…), buying a house, and packing? Yup, that’s our lives right now. Busy for sure so exciting! Our new house is quite literally twice the size of our house now, and AND ohmygodohmygod not just one real adult sized refrigerator, but TWO (an extra storage fridge/freezer in the garage)! I’m so happy I could cry. But that could also be because I’m so tired, too 😉
Have I mentioned how “Quick and Easy” is the theme in our house for dinner, lately? I loved our Crock Pot before, but now, oh now, it’s a life saver. This whole working mom thing is seriously kicking my ass. Shout out to all the other working moms out there to little ones. Solidarity, sisters! I’ve got an easy dinner for you: Crock Pot Honey Mustard Chicken!
Chicken and garlic: two ingredients you will invariably find in our kitchen. This household loves us some garlic and chicken and recently they came together for some Garlic Chicken Piccata which was uber tasty. Then I realized that although we use garlic in nearly all of our dishes, we don’t have many garlic chicken recipes. >Gasp< Therefore, I give you these Garlic Honey Chicken Thighs.
Who else loves healthy, simple, fast, and easy dinners? I knew we weren’t alone. Cooking from scratch often conjures up images of slaving away in a kitchen for hours on end. Au contraire, that’s not what it means at all. At least not in this super busy household. Yes, we have some recipes that are a total labor of love, like our Feta Cheese from scratch, or a from scratch pasta dish, but we both have full time jobs and lives that we need to attend to on a daily basis so for a majority of the time, we’re cooking from scratch dinners like this easy Mediterranean Grilled Chicken.
