Sauteed Chicken with Green Peppers and Onions

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts, chopped/cubed into very tiny pieces
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 green bell peppers, sliced thinly
  • 3 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 Tbsp dry oregano
  • 1 cup chopped scallions/green onions
  • 2 cups of water
Season chicken in lemon and black pepper. Pan fry on one side in a little bit of olive oil and butter while seasoning the uncooked side with oregano. Flip and season the other side. Cook until brown on both sides. Add sliced green peppers, onions, scallions, and salt. Add 2 cups of water, cover and simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Recipe modified from this one.

Buffalo Wings

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
Stir butter, hot sauce, black pepper, and garlic powder on low heat, save for later. Mix flour, chili powder, and salt together and coat the chicken wings. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Bake chicken at 500 degrees for 20 minutes (turn after 10 minutes). Coat with hot sauce.

Sweet Corn Muffins

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
Mix all dry ingredients, add wet ingredients. Pour into cupcake liners. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Turns out really yummy/moist if you do 20 minutes instead of 25. Original recipe found here.

Apple Cheddar Sandwich

Who would have thought this combination exists and is actually good? As simple as a slice of cheddar cheese with sliced apples on bread (I used Arnold's multi grain sandwich thins). Toasted.
