Chicken Pot Pie just got real! And easy! The creaminess is pure comfort. Soooooo easy to make! Watch!
I’m enjoying this month of slow cooking. My poor slow cooker is all confused. Like, girl, when did you decide to put me to work! lol It’s making me lazy! Just throwing everything in one pot, putting on the lid, and going about my business has been a game changer for me.
Feel free to use any veggies you’d like. Pearl onions, corn, green beans, hey, it’s your Crock pot! I hope you enjoy this one! And keep the recipe requests coming in!
I’m over here excited! Just jubilant ya hear me?! Why you ask? Well, for one, I’m posting a second recipe this week! You guys know I’m NEVER this productive. And, most importantly, I’m beyond myself, because this chicken just blessed my soul! My WHOLE soul! Chile, you know I love a good sauce! But, Honey, this sauce right here?! Mannnnn….just try it!
I’m LOVING this slow cooking month! I hope you guys are finding these recipes helpful. This one has to be my new favorite. The sweet and tangy chicken will literally fall apart if you breathe on it. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but it’s just good. lol
You can use chicken breasts instead of thighs and add some red pepper flakes for a little heat. Have it your way! But, definitely give it a try!
Happy National Comfort Food Day!!!!!! Yeah, I know. These folks come up with all kinds of food holidays. But, I’m with it! I’ll play along! When, I think of comfort food I think of my favorite cook. My Mommy! More specifically, her super delicious Chicken and Dumplings! This was my absolute favorite childhood dish. Only hers though! I asked for her recipe. Why? I don’t know. My mother doesn’t use recipes! She just uses measuring cups to hold liquids. She’s a pro. But, she gave me the run down on the technique and told me to pray for the rest. Thanks, Theresa! I hope my take on this classic makes ya proud, Girl. Let’s cook!
I needed a flavor shock in my life. When I think of flavor explosions, I think of Jamaican food. So, today, we’re making Jerk Chicken Sliders with a sweet, tangy pineapple slaw! I love it! The perfect blend of comparable herbs and spices is just delightful! Jamaicans know flavor!! Of course, I had to make this Coop style. You know, I’ll use any excuse to eat pineapples! But, coleslaw gets a bad rep. I’m trying to change that with this slaw. Watch me make this….
Okay, do yourself a huge favor. MAKE THESE WINGS! They are sweet, savory, spicy…Honey, they’re just EVERYTHING! This is my take on Bourbon Chicken sauce. It’s called “Bourbon Chicken”, because it was created on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. You can add Bourbon if you like. I don’t. Doesn’t even need it! Watch me whip this sauce!
Your girl has been on a roll, Cookies! I’ve cooked everyday this week! Proud of me? Don’t be. I’m ending this madness today! lol But, I’m sharing Wednesday’s dinner with you. I made Chicken and Steak Fajitas. But, I ended up ditching the tortillas. And, omgoodness! It was so good! It was kinda like a burrito bowl minus the rice. Delish! And then I realized how good the meat and veggies were by themselves. You could just serve them with rice and boom!! Another easy, yummy dinner! Healthy too. So, I’m just going to share how I prepared the meat and vegetables and let you decide. Tell me how you’d like to serve it in the comments!
Chicken Cordon Bleu is perfect as it is. Elegant and delicious! But, in true Coop fashion, I added a slight Cajun twist. Incorporating a few Cajun spices woke that chicken up! This is my take on a wonderful, French classic! Check out my YouTube video for this recipe. Here, you’ll see step by step instructions. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy title. This entree was a breeze! It was also a lot of fun to make.
You MUST have thin chicken breast, so break out the mallet, Cover the bird with plastic wrap, and beat it like it back talked you or owes you $$ whatever works. Wait, preheat your oven to like 350.. Whatever feels safe. Ok now back to the ? season it.Here’s where my Cajun twist comes in. Add those Cajun spices! Yum
Now grab a slice of ham. Any kind except honey! No sweet meat today! Now a slice of cheese. I used Gruyere because it made me feel special that day, but Swiss works! Roll the chicken and let him chill in the fridge for awhile.
Take him out after 15-20 mins. Throw way that plastic wrap. We can’t eat that, boo! Now, secure him with toothpicks if it’s being a jerk and unrolling.
Plate some breadcrumbs and season it with salt, pepper, onion & garlic powder. Then put an egg and some milk in a bowl (egg wash!) Now, roll that guy in some flour, dip in egg, then breadcrumbs.
Take him over to the stove that should have a hot skillet with a lil oil in it waiting for him, because I mentioned that earlier right? ? Brown ALL four sides of this guy. Then, place him in a greased dish (or leave it in the skillet if it’s an oven safe one) and bake for 15-20 mins or however long it takes until he’s no longer pink inside. But don’t over cook!
Now, I’ll be honest. This sauce was an accident that ended up making sense (story of my life??) But, it’s honestly soooo yummy! So, don’t skip it!
