Recipes

Last night on my facebook page, i asked what everyone was having for dinner and shared what i was making!! I always love hearing the meals that others prepare and getting new ideas!! I made honey garlic chicken, cilantro lime rice & steamed asparagus and had a couple of people ask for the recipes, so i figured i would post them here! It was a super simple meal and very very tasty!!

*Honey Garlic Chicken*

3 lg chicken breasts (i used skinless/boneless but the recipe says any chicken pieces will work!)
1/2 C brown sugar
2 tsp dry mustard
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 C honey

lay the chicken in a 9x13 baking dish.

spread each ingredient over the chicken in order and do NOT mix.

bake uncovered for 1 hour in 350 degree oven & enjoy!

**i only cooked the chicken for 45 minutes and it was even a little dry at that point ~ the cooking time will need to be adjusted to what kind of chicken pieces you use!**

**i think i am going to try this in the crockpot next time i make it, so i'll be sure to let you know how that turns out!!**


*Cilantro Lime Rice*

1 C uncooked long grain white rice
1 tsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 can chicken broth
1 C water

In saucepan, combine all of these ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low 15-20 minutes, until rice is tender. Remove from heat.

1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

In a small bowl, combine these 3 ingredients. Pour over hot cooked rice and mix in as you fluff the rice. Enjoy!!

**we all really enjoyed this rice ~ the flavor was perfect! not too much and just enough!!**

So what did y'all have for dinner last night?! Or what are you making tonight?! We are going to have crockpot creamy italian chicken over pasta w/ broccoli tonight!! I have a little love affair with the crockpot y'all! Hope you all have a blessed day!!

The chicken sounds so good! I bet the crock pot idea works out great too! We love watching Food Network so I joined their website. When they cook something that looks good I add it to my favorites. Thanks for sharing your recipes!

Tonight we are making little english muffin pizzas. We ate a late lunch and aren't very hungry. :o)
