Roasted Chicken Breasts with Caramelized Shallots

You can’t ever go wrong with caramelized onions especially SHALLOTS!! They’re so good. This recipe takes very little prep time and is ready in approximately 20 minutes. It’s a great recipe for one of those busy week nights. 


Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 large shallots, peeled and diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 thick chicken breasts (make sure they’re all of the same thickness for even cooking)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 
  2. In a large baking dish (I used the 13″ by 9″ glass baking dish), mix in the olive oil, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, diced shallots, salt and pepper. 
  3. Toss the chicken in the mixture. Flip them over. Make sure they’re coated in this sauce and the shallots. 
  4. Roast for about 20 minutes. Halfway through the roasting time you should flip the chicken breasts over. 
  5. When 20 minutes is up, I continue to cook the chicken breasts under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to give it a nice color. 
  6. Serve with caramelized shallots on top of each chicken breast.

Panda Express’ Mushroom & Zucchini Chicken

My husband loves Panda Express and this is his favorite out of all their dishes. Why waste money on takeout when you can make it at home? And it’s much more healthier as well.

Chicken Fajitas

We love fajitas in our house here! What makes this chicken fajitas recipe special is the marinade. It gives the chicken so much flavor and doesn’t dry the chicken out when it’s being seared on the flattop grill or in the cast iron pan.

Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs

This is a foolproof recipe and is very easy. You probably have everything in your kitchen pantry except for the chicken thighs. This makes a great weeknight meal!


Ingredients:

  • 8-12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce 
  • 4-5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Put flour in a small bowl. 
  3. Coat the chicken thighs with flour and shake excess off. 
  4. Place chicken thighs in a greased baking dish. Make sure they don’t lay flat (they should be rolled up the same way as they were in the package). 
  5. In a small bowl, whisk honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Make sure you mix it well since the honey is very thick. 
  6. Pour sauce mixture evenly over the chicken. 
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. 
  8. Remove the cover and baste again. Bake for another 15 minutes. You should baste again for 1-2 times during that 15 minutes period so the thighs don’t dry out.

Chicken Lombardy

This chicken will quite possibly be the BEST you’ve ever eaten. First of all, I love cooking chicken with wine. For this specific recipe, we use Marsala wine. And who doesn’t like cheese? This recipe is worth the try and you will not regret it!

Crispy Buttermilk Chicken Breasts

I cannot believe I forgot to take pictures of this when I made this yesterday! I’ll have to remember to take pictures the next time I make this. I had leftover buttermilk when I made banana bread over the weekend. I hate the thought of wasting food and I had wanted to find ways to use up the rest of the buttermilk. I came across this recipe and modified it to what I had on hand. It was a smashing delicious success! Marinating the chicken in this buttermilk mixture makes the chicken moist and tender. Sautéing the chicken seals the juices and develops a nice crispy crust just before transferring to the oven. It’s a must try! Read the rest of this entry »
