Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I’m going to do something that I don’t normally do. I’m going to take it easy on myself. Tonight’s recipe is made with all prepared ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. The rest of the time, 25 minutes, is baking time. So, grab a glass of wine, put your feet up, and wait for the timer to go off.

Warning, this can be a bit on the spicy side. Therefore not suited for everyone. Take heart, I can eat it and I cannot take anything above mild. How is that? Because the blue cheese dressing and mozzarella cheese balance the heat taking it down to moderate.

Wacky Farm Breakfast

So, don’t hate me, but I have never really understood the whole chicken and waffles concept. I understand the good plus good equals “gooder” philosophy. That’s where we get PB & J. Stay with me as I explain, the good plus good philosophy is where you take two things that are good on their own but when put together it is game over. From that point on you can’t imagine having one without the other (i.e. PB&J).

In chicken and waffles case, the waffles are better alone, and the fried chicken is definitely a force all on its own. So instead of the traditional waffles and chicken that have the two fighting for attention, I like to serve a “wacky” version of this classic with fried chicken bits served over a fried egg and wilted kale salad sautéed in a garlic confit and chili oil with waffle squares on the side served as “toast”.

Cornbread Stuffed Chicken Breast

A perfectly roasted chicken breast stuffed with a homemade cornbread stuffing, fresh herbs, and a delectable bourbon glaze.

I haven’t made this dish for some time, but I knew when I was asked to come up with some recipes that used bourbon I had to include this wonderful bourbon glaze. A delicious glaze that turns simple chicken into an elegant dish great for entertaining. The chicken is tender, the juices drip through the stuffing adding another dimension to the stuffing and the glaze…OMG! The glaze gives it deep rich tones. Beware your eyes might roll back in your head as you savor every bite. YUM!
