Healthy Lemon Garlic Chicken

So one of the things that cooking has taught me is that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or bland. As I confess, that is one of the reasons why I find eating healthy quite challenging. But now that I have been cooking for the past few years I have a different outlook on cooking and eating healthier. I found a statement on Pinterest that I liked because is 100% true: “just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it has to be boring or bland.”

This Lemon Garlic Chicken has undoubtedly confirmed that quote as it was so tender, juicy and delicious! The lemon juice added the perfect zing to the chicken.

I couldn’t believe the ease of preparation. The only thing I had to do was sear or brown the chicken for a few minutes on the stove then toss them into my crockpot along with a few ingredients. It was nice because I had the rest of the day to myself to do some chores and other stuff.

I’m sure that you are going to love how easy it is to prepare this recipe and your family is going to enjoy the taste.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken


1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 C. low-sodium chicken stock

2-3 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp. Black pepper, to taste

fresh parsley, garnish, optional


1. Combine the oregano, seasoned salt and black pepper (to taste) in a small bowl, then rub mixture all over the chicken breasts. Heat olive oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken breasts on each side for three four minutes.

2. Pour the chicken stock and lemon juice into the crockpot, then add in minced garlic and stir everything together. Place the browned chicken breasts into the crockpot, then cover and cook on high for two – three hours, or until cooked through.

The Greatest Healthy Chili

I had intended to prepare this chili recipe on the stovetop on Monday evening. But Luke my brother had two basketball games about the same time I planned on cooking. I was bummed because I wanted to watch and support him and his team. However, I was excited to see that the chili can cook in the crockpot. I immediately got busy with cooking the meat and tossing everything in the crockpot so that it would be ready to eat when we got home from my brother’s games. My brother’s team did a pretty good job overall but they unfortunately lost. I’m proud of my brother he’s a really good ball player.

Anyway, this chili was amazing, excellently spiced and healthy. It’s made with lean ground turkey, kidney beans, and corn. This version is the greatest! My family loved it, and I’m sure your family will enjoy it too!

The Best Healthy Turkey Chili


2 tsp. olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

1 pound extra lean ground turkey or chicken

4 Tbsp. chili powder

2 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 -1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

1 (28-oz) can diced tomatoes

1 1/4 C. Progresso chicken broth

2 (15 oz) cans Goya dark red kidney beans, optional

1 (15 oz) can sweet corn

For topping: cheese, avocado, tortilla chips, cilantro, sour cream


1. Pour oil in a large pot and place over medium high heat. Add the onion, garlic and red pepper and saute for five-seven minutes, stirring frequently. Next add in ground turkey and break up the meat; cooking until no longer pink.

2. Next add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt; stir for approximately twenty seconds. Next add in tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for thirty-forty five minutes or until chili thickens and flavors come together. Taste and adjust seasonings and salt as necessary.

Court’s Cooking Notes: To prepare this recipe in the slow cooker reduce the chicken broth to 1/2 cup and brown the turkey and onions before adding to the slow cooker. This is an awesome tailgating or football party recipe!

Crispy Onion Chicken Dinner

This delicious crispy onion chicken recipe called for two and a half cups of French’s fried onions but I discovered that I didn’t have enough. So I decided to use breadcrumbs to make up the difference. It wasn’t as crispy, but the breadcrumbs did not take the yummy flavors away from the chicken. I also didn’t have enough honey mustard, so I made another change by combining regular mustard and honey. It surprisingly worked out great!

I am very proud of myself. I am getting more and more confident with substituting ingredients and working through the difficulties of cooking. This is one of the several reasons why I enjoy cooking so much. It involves a lot of learning and discovering new things. I hope that cooking is just as beneficial for you as it is for me.

This chicken dish is 100% crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside onion chicken. The flavor is amazing!

Crispy Onion Chicken


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 C honey mustard

1 1/2 C French’s fried onions, crushed


Preheat oven 375° F. Grease a baking sheet with non-stick spray or cover with foil (and spray foil w/ non-stick spray) for easy clean-up.

1. Place honey mustard in a medium shallow bowl. Place crushed fried onions in a separate medium bowl.

2. Coat each chicken breast in honey mustard then coat in crushed fried onions. Carefully lay coated chicken on baking sheet. Sprinkle tops of the chicken with a little more of the crushed fried onions.

4. Bake for thirty-fifty minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Crazy Addicting Buffalo Chicken Pasta

Earlier this week I had a serious craving for Buffalo chicken with a little comfort food tied into it. As We all need a little cheat now and then, right?  And this one is completely (and I mean TOTALLY) worth the splurge.

Delicious, rich, addicting, cheesy, creamy and just the right amount of spicy…. Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta. In the crockpot. Almost every step is done in your slow Cooker. Isn’t that nice? You hardly have to do anything! Have I convinced you yet?

I usually don’t indulge in any pasta too often. So this recipe was indeed a real treat. But when I do indulge I always try to get a small serving size with a vegetable or a side salad. However, I confess that I didn’t do it this time. Haha! I stuffed my face with this tasty, cheesy, gooey pasta. And then I got extremely excited about the idea of sharing it with all of my readers.

Some of you know that I’m a big fan of anything buffalo chicken. I’ve stated that once or twice (or a billion times) that it’s only been a few years that I found the excellent spicy flavor and now I can’t seem to control myself.I hope you don’t mind. But I think I could eat it every day. Just kidding!

This pasta dish would make a great dinner for a busy weeknight or the weekend with a good movie with your family or friends.
