Easy Chicken and Rice Pot Pie

This chicken pot pie recipe came out of a need to use up the leftover rice I had in my fridge, so I purchased a store-bought rotisserie chicken and whipped up an easy white sauce.

The result is this delicious and easy chicken recipe that nobody would ever guess came from leftovers. Especially if you take a minute to add those fun little carrot and pea cut-outs to adorn the top pie crust. Adorable!!

Breaded Baked Italian Chicken Legs

This is my updated riff on the old favorite of Shake ‘n Bake chicken from when I was growing up.

This recipe for Baked Italian Chicken Legs actually has nothing at all to do with the flavors of  Shake ‘n Bake (which was far too salty for my taste). It’s only the preparation method that is the same. The ingredients are put into a bag, the chicken is added, and then it’s time to shake…and bake. What could be easier?

Apple Cider Braised Chicken Breasts

I had chicken breasts in the freezer, apple cider in the fridge, a half a box of gingersnaps left in the pantry, a few sweet potatoes that I needed to use before they went bad, and friends coming for dinner.

The result was this Apple Cider Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Gingersnaps. This dinner FAR surpassed my expectations, and was a massive hit with our guests! Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!!

Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.
