So how was your Easter?
We usually attend the sunrise service but decided not to this year. Although I think we missed out a little bit on a fun family tradition, I have to say I enjoyed sleeping in and having all the extra time to get ready. Next year though, I think we’ll be back at the sunrise service.
So…it’s another edition of “What’s For Dinner?” – Part 2!
We tried out several new recipes over the last couple of weeks and, although some were bland and downright gross, some were really amazing!
The recipes below are the ones that are here to stay!
What’s For Dinner? – Part 2
1. BBQ Chicken Pizza (pictured)
I made this for the first time this week and it was a HIT!! I used two different recipes to make this BBQ Chicken Pizza. I used a Paleo Pizza Crust recipe and this Homemade BBQ Sauce recipe. The Homemade BBQ Sauce recipe didn’t come out as thick as I would have liked so I added a few tablespoons of tapioca flour and mixed it with an immersion blender. It thickened up beautifully! For those who are sensitive to dairy, you can leave the cheese off of this pizza, as I did for my kids, and I promise you, you’ll never know it’s not there. I topped the pizza with chicken, of course, and caramelized onions. Delicious!!
2. Sweet and Savory Thighs
Mmmm, these Sweet and Savory Thighs are heavenly. I baked mine in the oven, covered with foil, in a glass Pyrex dish. (I lined the dish with parchment paper which saved me a ton of time when it came to washing dishes.) They came out oh so tender and tasty. The kids gave these a big thumbs up! We had these thighs with a side of steamed veggies and a salad.
3. Curried Chicken
Curried Chicken is one of our favorite recipes!! To make it grain-free we will often use steamed veggies in place of the rice. I make this at least once a week. We are addicted to it!!
4. Homemade Hamburger Helper
This Homemade Hamburger Helper recipe reminded me of being a kid again! It used to be one of my favorite meals! This recipe is much healthier than the boxed version! To make this recipe allergry friendly, leave out the cheese and use cubed butternut squash in place of the noodles. Yum!
5. 7 Layer Mexican Dip
I’m not sure why this is called a dip… This 7 Layer Mexican Dip is definitely more of a meal than a dip! You can eat it with a fork like I did or with a few gluten-free, non GMO tortilla chips, if you can tolerate them! Sooooo yummy!
I hope you all enjoy these as much as my family did.
Do you have some great new recipes to share? I’d love to try them out. Just leave me a comment below!
