Creamy Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Originally published on April 2, 2015 This dish might seem like a lot of work at first. I mean, there’s the chicken that needs to be cooked and two different pasta sauces that need to be made, and, well – is dinner really worth it? Well yeah, when the end result is as delicious and satisfying […]

Somen Noodles with Chicken in a Peanut Sauce

Originally published on April 10, 2015 I get so excited when I’m at the grocery store and see something that I’ve never seen before. Often this happens in the ethnic foods aisle and usually that excitement is quickly squashed by seeing that the item I’m looking at includes a great amount of shellfish or worse, […]

Maple Marinated Chicken Kabobs

Originally published on April 27, 2015 There is little that is more Canadian than maple syrup. The real stuff, that is. I’m lucky enough to live in the “Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario” and even luckier to know someone that makes their own, which is what I used when making these Maple Marinated Chicken Kabobs. This past […]

How to BBQ a Whole Chicken

Originally published on July 11, 2015 Throwing an entire chicken on the grill and barbecuing it can seem like a daunting task. But if you forget about the fire and gas and just focus on cooking the chicken, you’ll find it’s not much different than roasted chicken that comes out of the oven. Of course, with that […]

Stir Fry Chicken with Garlic Sauce

Originally published on July 20, 2015 I’ve always tackled my stir fry the same way. Stir fry the meat, add a large mixture of vegetables then your sauce, and serve over rice or noodles. I’m not sure what inspiration I was feeling last time I made chicken stir fry, but I suddenly wanted to try something different, beyond just the […]

Chicken Marsala

Originally published on November 3, 2015 I’ve always wanted to make Chicken Marsala at home, but never remember to buy Marsala wine, a key component in the dish that was named after it. On a recent trip to the liquor store, a bottle caught my eye and I started chatting with the clerk about it. Here are […]

Perfectly Pan-Roasted Chicken

Originally published on January 15, 2016 Whether you’re using them as a main course, or you just need juicy chicken for tacos or a salad, there’s more than one way to cook a good bird. Pan-roasting is a quicker way to cook chicken, and I find that because you have so much more control over it, it doesn’t dry […]

Grilled Maple Butter and Herb Chicken

Originally published on September 19, 2016 I’m crazy about maple syrup. It’s a relatively new thing, but in the past few years I haven’t been able to shake it. I try to put it on whatever I can get away with, and while at the CNE last month, I bought a jar of maple syrup in one of […]

Estonian Chicken

Originally published on November 1, 2016 I’ve talked a lot about my grandma on my blog, but I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned that she’s Estonian. She fled from the country when she was in her late teens/early twenties, and she’s got one of the most interesting stories of anyone I’ve ever met. Scratch […]

Mexican Stuffed Chicken

Originally published on January 21, 2017 I’m going to be honest with you. I’m not a huge fan of chicken breasts. I know, I know, the white meat is preferred by many, and KFC will even charge you extra if you ask for a bucket of “all-white” meat. But chicken can already be somewhat boring […]
