Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sandwich

Have you all heard of Chick-Fil-A?   It has always been a family favorite fast food restaurant for us.  I love their Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich with pickles!   I love the chicken nugget’s because they are 100% real chicken for my son,   I love their salads and I even love all their dipping sauces.   I love how they always have a fresh flower on the table and the staff is always polite and refer to everything as “My Pleasure” If you can’t tell I  just love this place!!

  At first they were only in the malls but now they are all over the valley.   Which is awesome cause I really hate dragging a 2 year old into the mall just for some delicious lunch.   The point im getting at,  is you need to try this Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sandwich recipe and if you are unfortunate and don’t have one anywhere close to you then give this recipe a try.   Because it’s so close to the original it is amazing!

Sweet Firecracker Chicken

This dish is Panda Express inspired!  I have never really been a fan of Panda Express until they got their Sweet Fire-Cracker Chicken.  It is has became my all time favorite dish that they offer.  So what is a girl to do, start looking around on the internet to find an awesome copy-cat recipe.  

There were a few different recipes on line but I choose this particular one because it sounded the most like the original recipe.  This was actually my second time making this Sweet Fire-Cracker Chicken.   The first time we had it was great.  I even brought some of left overs to my parents house for them to try and my dad actually thought it came from the restaurant.  It was pretty tasty but I decided to make a few alterations to the original recipe I found and I think it tastes so much better.  It’s still really similar

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

My grandpa has been making  this Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for years!  Of course along the way it was been slightly modified but it is still just as delicious as it was when I was little girl spending the night at my grandparents house with all my cousins.  It has always been a family favorite and it always will be my favorite.    I love when recipes are passed down from generate to generate.  I love the memories that come along with all the recipes.

There is nothing better the having a nice warm bowl of soup on a cold Winter day!  The best part about homemade Chicken noodle soup is the noodles.  I personally think they need to be homemade.  The honestly make the soup taste so much better!

I love preparing a nice warm meal.  Then being able to sit down in a nice comfortable chair  wrapped around a fuzzy blanket watching the snow coming down or reading a good book.  There is just something so peaceful with watching the snow fall.  When everything is covered in fresh white layer and the fresh crispness in the air.   So make sure you think of this recipe the next time you see snow falling.  This recipe will soon become one of your family favorite recipes and they will fall in love with it.

With any good soup recipe, I always think the soup tastes better the next day after all the juices are able to soak into the noodles.   So feel free to make this the night before.  It does make a lot of soup and I have tried to half the recipe but some how I always end up making a huge batch still.  Which is fine because we always still eat all of it.  I only wish I could find a way to freeze this recipe without the noodles turning into a mush.

Easy Chicken Alfredo

It’s 5 o’clock!  You just walk in the door from a long day at work!  The kids are hungry and grumpy and you have no idea what to make for dinner!!

Well ladies and Gentleman this Easy Chicken Alfredo recipe is the winner!  Its super easy, I can have dinner on the table in about 30 minutes.  Everykid loves pasta, chicken and I was even able to sneak in some veggies.   I love meals that are full of color, makes me happy knowing my family is getting a variety of vegtables.

The original Easy Chicken Alfredo recipe was for a slow cooker but I didn’t have the time.  So I simply modified it just a little bit and I think it turned out great.  It has now become a family favorite and even the leftovers are just as good as the day before.

Crockpot Cashew Chicken

Here is another great recipe to add to my list of crock-pot recipes!

We love Chinese food in this house!!   I would eat it all the time if I could but my husband is so picky we can only go to 1 restaurant that he has been going to since he was a little boy. The same restaurant was actually our first date back when we were dating in high school.  But sadly its half way across the valley or we would probably go at least once a month.  

So instead I have to get creative in the kitchen and try to make my own Chinese dishes.   I’m not complaining though because this recipe was so simple and easy to make and it actually tasted great.   The best part it’s made in the crock-pot which means less dishes to wash and you don’t have to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen preparing dinner!

Chicken Pillows

We have been making this recipe for the longest time.  My mom always use to make this recipe for us when we were kids.  Now im happy that I am able to make it for family and it has quickly became one of our family favorite meals to make.  I like this recipe because it is easy to throw together and I usually always have the ingredients on hand.
Im also a big fan of sauce!!  The more sauce I have the better.  So definitely make sure you have the sauce!
 
Plus if you are a small family like me, this recipe makes a lot.  So make all the “pillows” and place the extras in the freezer, just don’t bake them until you are ready to eat them.

Chicken Ranch Pasta

Here is another fantastic recipe I got off of Pinterest.  I love when I find fast and quick recipes.  I also just so happened to have a rotisserie chicken sitting in the fridge that I needed to use up and it was a perfect!  If your like my family we love anything with ranch and we consider it an added bonus when we add bacon on top.  The bacon makes the perfect addition to this fantastic recipe.

Rumbi Teriyaki Rice Bowl

We love going out to dinner…but honestly who doesn’t!  We love Rumbi’s because it is quicker then a restaurant but classier then the a fast food restaurant.   Plus with a 1 year old we only have about 20 minutes to eat before he is ready to start running for the door.

  There is just something about not having to worry about what to make for dinner.   I don’t have to worry about going to the grocery store and again with toddler sometimes that can be nightmare.  I don’t have to cleaning it up.  Because if your like me I put off emptying the dishwasher all day and now I have both sided of the sink full of dirty dishes.

 Well in the real world I wish I could afford to go out to dinner every night, but since we are unable to do that we have to go ahead and make some copycat recipes instead.   My mom came across this recipe awhile back and she told me made again recently and that it was really good.  So I thought why not add to our families menu for the month.

I’m so glad I did because it seriously it the spot!
