  1. Hatch Chile Chicken Enchiladas

    August 28, 2013 by Victoria

    Wow. I totally made dinner two days in a row. And, looky here, I’m actually posting two days in a row. Don’t die of shock or anything.


    This is a recipe I used to make frequently, but I guess it kind of fell off my radar. I made a few changes. Mostly to unhealthify it. Whoops. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts because that’s what I had on hand. And more cheese because… cheese.


    For the green chile sauce, I used hatch chiles because they’re here! And delicious. Although I feel like we got a particularly spicy crop this year or something. Brent made chili a few weeks ago that could burn your face off.

    These are seriously so delicious though. Um, also I only got 8 enchiladas. So, uh, definitely not 8 servings. Overall though, winner winner chicken dinner. Seriously, make these. With the hatches, while we have them.

    I’ll leave you with a photo of Cormac realizing he can get things off the counters now. The look of excitement on his face is pretty priceless.

  2. Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Salad

    April 18, 2013 by Victoria

    Cormac is still sensitive to soy, and I miss it! Sushi, pho, edamame, soy lattes. Anyways, we haven’t been eating a lot of Asian food for the past five months, and Brent and I both miss the flavors. So I was psyched when I saw this chicken salad in Food & Wine.

    The recipe said 50 minutes using leftover fried chicken, but I just baked some chicken thighs I had on hand and it still only took 45 minutes. I just baked the chicken while I made the sauce and chopped the rest of the ingredients. Super easy. And I loved this! Brent added tons of sriracha and said it was “OK.” Whatever. He’s clueless.

    Cormac initially seemed excited about the meal.

    But he spit out all the chicken, covered himself in rice noodles and threw the plate on the floor. So… Maybe not a baby favorite. Yet.
