Delicious Chicken Dinner

Lately Pinterest has been such a great place for recipe and food inspiration.
you can view my food pin board { here } It's where I found our latest favorite meal!

Just last night I made blackened chicken with cilantro lime quinoa.
We topped it with an avocado cream sauce.
This dinner turned out much better than I had imagined.

Although my husband says he likes everything I cook (like a good husband should),
I actually think he really really enjoyed this meal.
I'm sure we'll be having this meal again sometime soon.

Meal planning has never really been my thing, but it is something I'm trying to get better at.
Finding great looking food on Pinterest has made me want to try more new things that I may have not come across on my own.

This weekend I'm making Macadamia Nut Chicken... yum!

I definitely don't have much time to sit around (thought I do try) and watch
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, read food magazines, or eat out more often...
although those are my ideal ways to learn more about food. (:

For now, browsing the beautiful photos on Pinterest will have to suffice.

Have you found any great recipes lately?!
Or do you have a favorite that you want to share?


  1. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! That first meal looks and sounds AMAZING! And is def something I can eat!!!! YUM!

  2. both of those recipes look delish. we just bought a super pack of chicken breasts from costco and i'm stumped when it comes to creative ways to cook them. i added both of these to my list for the week!!

  3. Duuuuuude! Cilantro lime anything floats my boat... Looks amazing! I think my favorite recipe I found was one called Almond crusted chicken.. Basically it's chicken dredged in an almond meal/breadcrumbs/egg/seasoned mix and then fried in a skillet in some oil.. It's fantastic! I make chicken tenders out of it with a homemade honey mustard sauce..and maybe some baked potatoes for a side.. The best!
