Layered Chicken Mason Jar Salads

Layered Chicken Mason Jar Salads Have you started with the picnic festivities yet? Because I sure have! It’s so wonderful to be outside with friends and family, enjoying the sun and some really good food. I will take any excuse I can get to go on a picnic, even if it’s a quick one on my lunch hour. Just get me outside!

Craft Beer Can Chicken

Craft Beer Can Chicken How do you kick beer can chicken up a notch? Swap out that Budweiser for a specialty craft beer! When you get tired of burgers, hot dogs and ribs (or in addition to all those burgers, dogs and ribs!), a roasted chicken on the grill is a great way to shake things up at your yearly barbecues. Remember Memorial Day is just around the corner! This is the perfect way to celebrate.

What to Eat Before Drinking All Night on St. Patrick's Day

What to Eat Before Drinking All Night on St. Patrick's Day

Guinness Floats

We're kind of obsessed with St. Patrick's Day this year. From Guinness Floats to Jameson, green beer to endless green shots, we know we'll be feeling the pain come Friday morning. That's why we're giving you a little two-part low down on how to avoid that hangover you are already dreading. So what should you eat before drinking all night on St. Patrick's Day? Let us break it down for ya. First of all, don't skip dinner and eat BEFORE you start drinking. That whole building a base layer for the booze to settle into only works if you're building it before the booze enters your system. Get that nosh in your stomach early so you can change the outcome of your all-night drinking binge.

Second, eat right and eat smart. The best thing to do to avoid feeling like death on March 18th is to eat these killer foods that'll get your mind and body right. Food really does counteract the effects of alcohol... who knew? - Spaghetti (or other carbs) - yep, carbo-load all night long baby. It's a real thing and it works. Try our Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread... - Chicken - protein-rich so it'll stay in ya longer and it will slow the blood alcohol level. That means you can drink longer and enjoy the entire night before you feel like passing out! Go for the small servings like a burrito bowl or even our delicious Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings. - Avocado - protein + healthy fats will actually digest slower than carbs so whip out that guacamole like there's no tomorrow. - Low-fat yogurt - if you're worried about consuming too many calories on this delicious, boozy holiday, start off with some yogurt and granola. You'll get the healthy fats and vitamins in you before you go pigging out on beer and corned beef. - Water - this one's a no-brainer, but don't forget about it. When it comes to hangovers, water does a body good. Pro tip: always take a couple of ibuprofen and chug a gigantic glass of water before bed (or when you wake up with cotton mouth at 4AM). Thank us later.

If you do happen to skip dinner in all the craziness that is St. Patty's Day, never fear. Just load up on nuts and olives at the bar because they've got the fats and vitamins to help you out. Martini with 10 olives, anyone? Happy St. Patrick's Day! Stay tuned because we've got some more knowledge to drop on ya to fight that hellish hangover...

Campfire Nachos

Imagine this… You’re sitting around the campfire, drinking a couple beers and joking with your friends. Then someone says, “dinner’s ready” and you all gather around a large cast iron skillet. The aluminum foil gets peeled off and you instantly smell the best campfire dinner smell ever – barbeque. Campfire Nachos

Now I’m turning that imagined experience into a reality for you with these campfire barbeque nachos! Featuring Pig of the Month meats, all you have to worry about is preparing shredded chicken prior to packing up and heading to your campsite. Then simply assemble all the ingredients, cover with foil and cook directly on the campfire until everything’s warm and the cheese is melted.

Campfire Nachos

You’ll end up loving the three-meat combination on these campfire nachos so much, you’ll be building fire pits in your backyard just for an excuse to eat them on a weeknight! DIG IN!

INSTRUCTIONS: Layer the tortilla chips on the bottom of the cast iron skillet, filling it approximately 1/3 of the way full. Add the pulled pork, brisket and pulled chicken in an even layer on top of the chips.

Top the meats with black beans, sliced jalapeños, and cheese. Cover the cast iron skillet with aluminum foil and place directly on the campfire. Cook until the dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can also cook this under the broiler on low for approximately 5 minutes at home!

Remove from heat, peel off the foil and top with the fresh tomato chunks. Serve immediately with either barbeque sauce or salsa and hot sauce.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

It's March and that means one thing in my foodie-obsessed brain - March Madness parties for days. That's right, that means chips and dip, guacamole, sliders, jalapeño poppers and, most importantly, crispy sticky chicken wings. Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings, to be exact.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

If you ever have a snack attack, March Madness-related or not, your next go-to recipe absolutely has to be these wings. They are baked to crispy perfection in the oven, and the sticky spicy and tangy glaze makes them positively finger-licking good. You'll need the wet wipes for these, folks.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

The Sriracha and lime juice make this super simple glaze full of flavor that you simply can't find anywhere else. No need to go out for chicken wing perfection - time to stay in with your friends and family watching the next March madness game, or just enjoying a leisurely spring afternoon with a couple of hearty beers.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Sriracha-Lime-Wings-Ingredients

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 5 Tbsp unsalted butter. Once melted, whisk in 1 Tbsp flour and brown for approximately 1 minutes. Add in the hoisin sauce, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice, stirring to combine. The mixture should become nice and thick pretty quickly, in less than a minute. In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings, 2 Tbsp melted butter, vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat the wings evenly.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Add the wings in an even layer to the lined baking sheet.

Brush the wings with a layer of glaze. Bake the wings for 25 minutes, turning them over halfway through and adding another coat of glaze. After 25 minutes are up, brush the wings with a final layer of glaze and broil for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.

Want to get everyone to the dinner table on time? There's nothing like a heaping cheesy helping of Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta to get everyone's mouth watering! I LOVE chicken parmesan. It's that Italian comfort food that is perfect to whip out once the temperatures start dipping. However making a true chicken parmesan in the middle of the week can be a little bit of a pain. By the time I am done with work, I want to kick back and eat. I don't want to deal with a bunch of cooking and baking when I'm finishing a hard day.

That's why this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta is such a perfect recipe. It can cook while you are at work so when you get home, all you have to do is boil some pasta and add the cheese. In less than 15 minutes of actual active cooking time, you will have a hot and fresh dinner to comfort you after a rough day.
