Fancy Chicken

Fancy Chicken

Dana is always looking out for great recipes to try. She spotted a chicken recipe on facebook that looked delicious. Upon further consideration we noticed that it utilized a prepackaged soup mix. We decided to break it down and come with our own take on this dish. We started with fresh herbs and went from there. I must say that this dish was freaking delicious!

Spinach, Bacon and Swiss Quiche

Bacon Spinach Swiss Quiche

I am a huge fan of Quiche.  The other night I was clueless as to what to make for dinner.  I had a bunch of eggs lying around and figured a Quiche would be perfect.  Add a little bacon and Swiss and this was going to be a great meal.  I used the basic recipe from Paula Deen and then fiddled with the recipe until it worked.

Chicken Spinach and Mushroom Pizza

The other day I wanted to make a little lighter pizza that did not have the heavy red sauce on it. So I decided to make a nice light chicken pizza. With a base of seasoned whipped ricotta topped with chicken and sauteed spinach and mushrooms. It was one of tastiest pizzas I have ever made.

On a side note, make sure that your ricotta cheese is good.  Mine had an expiration date of two weeks from now and it was moldy.  Yeah, I know.  So gross.

Bacon Crusted Quiche

I love brunch and I love quiche. However, today I didn’t feel like making a pie crust, so I made a bacon crust for the quiche. Basically you form it like you would a real pie crust. You need to blind bake it with the help of some parchment and beans. Then you fill with your egg mixture and serve. Completely amazing.
