Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine salt, Creole seasoning, paprika powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and flour. Dredge the chicken in the seasoning mixture and shake off excess. Reserve any leftover spice/flour mix for the sauce.
  2. Preheat large saute pan, add olive oil and melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken tenders until done, about 8 minutes (3-4 minutes per each side). Remove from the pan.
  3. Add 4 tablespoons of butter to the empty skillet and add remaining seasoning mixture into the butter and cook it until flour is no longer raw. Add more paprika and heavy cream into the skillet. Bring to a boiling point.
  4. Lower heat and simmer 3-4 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  5. Pasta
  6. Boil pasta in salty water, drain, but do not rinse. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water. If you think the sauce needs thinning, add reserved pasta water to the sauce. Add it slow - as much as you would like to have according to your liking.
  7. Add cooked pasta into the sauce and stir until fully coated. Add chicken into the skillet with pasta to reheat.
  8. Serve with sauce spooned over chicken and pasta, and sprinkled with chopped parsley.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Spread rice in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish; set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan melt butter or margarine and stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk, bouillon granules, seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper. Stir all together and bring to a boil. Let simmer and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; add chicken, cheese and sour cream. Stir until cheese is melted. Mix all together and pour mixture over rice.
  4. Melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine in saucepan and toss with crushed cracker crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture over casserole. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through.
Recipe Notes

I'm going to make this for my mum, who has food allergies, and is lactose intolerant.  The internet says Velveeta, etc, are generally worse for lactose intolerant people than regular cheeses, so I'm going to try substituting 2% lactose free milk for the milk, and a mix of 3/4 mild cheddar and 1/4 mozzarella.

Instructions
  1. To a medium skillet add paprika, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and cardamom.
  2. Cook over medium heat until slightly toasted and fragrant, stirring frequently, about 1 - 2 minutes. (In a rush this step can be skipped, it just adds a little more flavor).
  3. In a large mixing bowl whisk together Greek yogurt, oil, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, spices from skillet, and season with salt and pepper (I use 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper).
  4. Add chicken thighs and toss well in mixture to coat evenly.
  5. Cover bowl and transfer to refrigerator and let marinate at least 3 hours and up to 10 hours.
  6. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 425 degrees.
  7. Clean grill grates and brush with oil.
  8. Grill chicken about 10 - 12 minutes per side for bone-in thighs (5 - 7 minutes per side for boneless thighs), while basting once lightly with oil if desired to reduce exterior drying, until chicken registers 165 on an instant read thermometer in center near bone.
  9. Let rest a few minutes off heat, serve warm with cilantro.

Instructions
  1. Slice the chicken into bite-sized chunks. Combine the cubed chicken with the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, salt, cumin, garam masala, and paprika and stir until well-coated.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 500°F (260°C). Line a high-sided baking pan or roasting tray with parchment paper.
  4. Place the marinated chicken pieces on bamboo or wooden skewers, then set them over the prepared baking pan, making sure there is space underneath the chicken to help distribute the heat more evenly. Bake for about 15 minutes, until slightly dark brown on the edges.
  5. Make the sauce: Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, then sauté the onions, ginger, and garlic until tender but not browned. Add the cumin, turmeric, coriander, paprika, chili powder, and garam masala and stir constantly for about 30 seconds, until the spices are fragrant. Stir in the tomato puree, tomato sauce, and 1 ¼ cups of water, then bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes. Pour in the cream.
  6. Remove the chicken from the skewers and add to the sauce, cooking for another 1-2 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve over rice or alongside naan bread.
  7. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Original Recipes:  https://tasty.co/recipe/homemade-chicken-tikka-masala

The comments for the original recipe were that the wooden skewers should be soaked to prevent burning, and that there should be more spice.  Since nothing is really spicy that I know of, I increased the seasonings by 50%.

Also, these can be air fried at 350F for 20 minutes, very tender and juicy, but didn't have the charred corners.  And we think maybe our oven runs a bit hot, so do please beginning checking after the first 15 minutes and adjust as needed.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut diagonally into the chicken breasts about 1/4 inch deep in an x shape to allow the bbq sauce to flavor more of the chicken. (like how a holiday ham has the top cut into an x shape).
  3. Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and toss well together until mixed.
  4. Add the chicken to a sheet pan, then pour the sauce over the chicken breasts.
  5. Cook for 25 -30 minutes or until caramelized, browned and cooked through.
  6. Shred the chicken with the forks and serve in your favorite bun, spooning the sauce over the chicken.
  7. If the sauce didn't cook down enough (if you use a pan that's too small it may not), then add the sauce to a saucepan and cook on medium heat until thickened (likely 15-20 minutes).
Recipe Notes

Original Recipe:  https://dinnerthendessert.com/bbq-pulled-chicken/

I had a bit over 2 lb, so I think I should have had more sauce.  Also, we shredded the chicken, then mixed it together, covered the pan in foil, and put back in the oven for a few minutes, maybe 10-15 minutes.  Awesome!

I plan to do more work on the sauce - I think I can make it better!  🙂

Recipe Notes

UPDATED: After receiving lots of mixed reader feedback, I've went back into the kitchen and reworked this recipe. I think you will be wonderfully surprised with the results! This recipe is inspired from a recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Christmas Favorites. When I say stir it well during the cooking process, I mean stir it all around. Top to bottom, bottom to top...all around. Toward the end of cooking (the last hour or so), you will want to watch it very closely. I wasn't sure how long exactly this would take with reworking the recipe, it took right at 3 and a half hours for mine. If I would have left it for another 30 minutes, I am sure it would have been mush instead of perfection. So, I cannot stress enough, watch it closely. As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed. crock pot recipe https://www.recipesthatcrock.com/crock-pot-creamy-chicken-and-rice/
