Food on Friday # 28 Mostly Chicken

Chicken is a really useful, (cool, nifty, neat), main ingredient for a lot of tasty and easy recipes.  However, chicken can be quite boring ~ but not in these fabulous recipes.

So, from the lovely San Diego girl Averie Sunshine there’s this easy lemon chicken with caramelized lemons.  I like easy and this dish both looks and sounds interesting.

Another citrus chicken dish from Anne at Tasting Everything; spicy citrus chicken, she says is an awesome chicken breast recipe!  ( the bang is hers )

I really like meals I can make in just one pan ~ in this case a skillet.  Heather Christo has this fabulous looking recipe for creamy tomato baked chicken and pasta.  I have to try this.

Another one pan dish, this time from Chungah at Damn Delicious.  One pan garlic chicken and veggies ~ as well as garlic this recipe uses ranch dressing, which I know is a big favourite with my friend from Southern California.

As well as one pan dishes, I really like 20 minute meals.  From Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest there is this 20 minute basil cashew chicken.  Chicken and cashews are a great combination.  I think my friend in Orange County will like this dish because not only does it take 20 minutes from start to finish, it also calls for 4 cloves of garlic…

Also from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest we have Kimchi chicken and bacon fried rice.  cool.

OK, this isn’t chicken, but the title of this Friday’s post is Mostly Chicken.  From Petra at Food Eat Love, how about cauliflower mac & cheese with guinea fowl in a sticky lemon sauce?

Chicken does not just need to be the main course.  Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower has a cool recipe for a delicious spicy Thai chicken coconut soup with okra and mushrooms.  (for me, I would leave out the okra…OK I hate okra)

What to drink with chicken?  Other than a very light beer, club soda, or sparkling water…   for really good white wine, what about an Italian Verdicchio?

A great big thank you to all the cool cooks featured in this week’s Food on Friday.

  1. It’s been ages since I’ve seen okra used in a meal. I’m from the Caribbean living in the US 20+ yrs so in many ways I’ve lost touch with some of my ethnic food as finding some of the ingredients can take a bit of work. So fun to see it here. Lovely dishes all around. You’re inspiring me to revisit old recipes and try some of your suggestions too. ☺

    Have a great week! ☺ 🌷

  2. I eat a lot of chicken, but usually the dark meat. The breast I find bland and tasteless, but these recipes sound fantastic!!
