Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

I discovered Greek food this summer, and when I finally tried the chicken salad that the Greek place at the mall makes, I knew I had to come up with my own recipe. This Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing recipe is great for meal-preppers like myself or people who don’t have a lot of time to cook, because you basically do all of the hard work the night before and then throw everything together when you’re ready to eat it.

Pan Roasted Rosemary Chicken and Mushrooms

We just got our very first cast iron pan (a cast iron grill pan, no less!) so I decided to try it out with a pan roasting recipe. If you don’t have cast iron, any heavy pan will do — just make sure that it’s safe to go into your oven. This recipe is another potential one-pan recipe that utilizes your oven, so it’s great for the colder months when you’re feeling a little lazy and cold, but want some great food.

Chicken Carbonara-Inspired Salad

Gluten Free Chicken Carbonara Salad

So I recently discovered Chicken Carbonara… oh my. It’s heaven in my mouth, but weighs a little heavy on the guilty-pleasure scale. But I’ve always been a firm believer that just because food is healthy, it doesn’t have to be boring. So I found a way to create guilt-free Chicken Carbonara: in salad form, of course! I tried to take all of the fresher elements of the dish and replace the useless filler-calories with plant-based things, and I have to admit, I’m pretty pleased with it. This was definitely a flavorful, interesting salad to eat. And I kind of really just like looking at it, too!
