Mr. Rife Chicken

Mr. Rife Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken with #mushrooms #peppers #onion #recipe

A healthy chicken dish seasoned simply with onion, peppers, and mushrooms, created by a teacher and good friend of ours who had a profound effect on my son’s (and, consequently, all of our) lives. Mr. Rife was our TaeKwonDo instructor, who befriended my son and invited him to play D&D with him and his friends. […]


Minted Cantaloupe Chicken Salad

Minted Cantaloupe Chicken Salad with Minted Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #melon #salad #recipe

My dad gave me one of his first few prized cantaloupes from his garden. Dad absolutely loves cantaloupe and always plants an abundance of them in his garden. We await them eagerly every year. They are sooo sweet and juicy and wonderful. When you put a piece in your mouth, it practically melts on your […]


Apricot Almond Chicken Salad

Apricot Almond Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese, Vidalia Onion and a Honey Chipotle Apricot Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

with Goat Cheese, Sweet Vidalia Onions and a Honey Chipotle Apricot Vinaigrette With all the apricots my dad gave me from his tree, I HAD to make a salad. And he gave me a jar of apricot puree that he’d made too … that was just begging to become a dressing. I didn’t realize just how […]


Watermelon Mint & Feta Salad

Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #refreshing #summer #salad #recipe

with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette I like to garden, but most of my property is forest, so there isn’t much light for gardening. I have a little pond on the edge of the forest with a waterfall. Years ago I planted a bee balm next to the pond. I heard […]

Harissa Moroccan Chicken w/Roasted Peppers & Olives

Harissa Moroccan Chicken w/Roasted Peppers & Olives ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mediterranean #chicken #dinner #recipe

It’s always a delight for me when I can sit down and thumb through the pages of a good cookbook. If it’s a really good one, I need lots of bookmarks, one to mark each recipe I want to try. So when I was asked if I wanted to review my friend Alice Phillip’s new cookbook, […]


Chicken Strawberry Salad w/Goat Cheese

Chicken Strawberry Salad w/Goat Cheese & Roasted Strawberry Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #strawberry #salad #recipe

and Roasted Strawberry Lemon Vinaigrette Hurrah it’s spring! It doesn’t feel very spring-like here right now, but a week ago it did. The stores are tempting us with loads of springtime treasures … there are strawberries a-plenty and, although they are not exactly local strawberries (because let’s face it, it might technically be spring here, but there […]


Shrimp, Pork & Chicken Egg Rolls

Shrimp, Chicken & Pork Egg Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Eggroll #Recipe

So there’s this thing that happens in my house every year around St. Patrick’s Day and it has to do with cabbage. I love corned beef and cabbage and my kids love corned beef, but they aren’t so crazy about cabbage. I love cabbage, but I have a hard time eating a whole head of […]


Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese

Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #spicy #GrilledCheese #sandwich #recipe

Does it ever happen to you that you get so busy doing ridiculous things like hosting a virtual party on facebook or editing photos or perusing Pinterest or running your kids to their various appointments that you forget to do something really basic like feeding yourself? Yeah, that happens to me more than I’d like […]


Thai Peanut Noodle Salad w/Chicken

Thai Peanut Noodle Salad with Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #chicken #noodle #salad #recipe

Adapted from The Cafe Sucre Farine My cooking class last week was the first in a series of “lunchbox madness” classes. There was a lot of interest in salads and a request for non-dairy, so my mind turned to an Asian inspired chicken salad. I am giving you the full version here that I made for the class, with homemade […]


Chile Lime Chicken

Chile Lime Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #lime #chicken #recipe

Adapted from The Honour System I wanted a spicy chicken recipe for a salad I was making, so I looked up Chile Lime Chicken on the interwebs and, lo and behold, there were lots of recipes! I picked the most beautiful photo I could find and started making my marinade. I gave my chicken a little […]


Lemon Artichoke Chicken w/Capers & Feta Sauce

Lemon Artichoke Chicken with Capers & Feta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #artichoke #chicken #recipe

Inspired by the creamy feta artichoke chicken dip I made not long ago … that dip was so scrumptious, I decided that chicken and artichokes and feta were destined to go together in more ways than one. And so I threw together this chicken artichoke concoction with some feta sauce for pouring over … oh man, was […]


Sausage & Shrimp Southern Gumbo

Shrimp & Sausage Southern Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shrimp #sausage #gumbo #mardigras #soup #recipe

It’s almost time for Mardi Gras! Although I live in the north, I’ve traveled to the south and tasted some pretty dang awesome southern food–and one of the dishes that tops the yumminess charts for me is Louisiana gumbo. I’ve always wanted to make an authentic gumbo at home, and since Mardi Gras is coming up, […]

Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip

Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip & Induction Cooking with Swiss Diamond Cookware ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #creamy #chicken #feta #artichoke #dip #recipe

It’s Superbowl Sunday today … I’m not watching the Superbowl because I’m not a big football fan, but I totally LOVE all the superbowl food. Instead of watching the big game, though, I’m trying out induction cooking, mostly because I want to be able to actually COOK at my monthly cooking classes at work, where we […]


Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

#Buffalo #Chicken & #BlueCheese Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #appetizer #recipe

After I made those Buffalo Chicken Wontons, I seriously could not believe there could be any better buffalo chicken appetizer recipe possible. But then I had the idea to try that same creamy spicy chicken filling stuffed into a juicy mushroom … and could not believe how WONDERFUL that tasted! The juices from the sauce and the […]


Baked Buffalo Chicken Wontons

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wontons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #buffalochicken #appetizer #recipe

with blue cheese crumbles Like so many others, I am totally smitten with buffalo chicken. Not so much in wing form, because buffalo chicken wings annoy me. They’re too little and fatty and messy and boney for my tastes, but just about anything else buffalo chicken is heaven in my book. I have some wonton wrappers in […]


Turkey Florentine Sandwich

Toasted Turkey Florentine Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #cheesy #grilled #turkey #sandwich with #spinach & #sundriedtomato

Let’s take a break from all the holiday goodies for a gosh awful good sandwich! A grilled turkey sandwich with melty Italian cheese, spinach, sundried tomato, cream cheese, Greek yogurt and garlic. I made this sandwich the first time as a way to use up some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, but it was so good, […]


Spinach & Sausage Strata

Spinach & Sausage Strata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #dinner #recipe

If you have never had a strata, it is the savory cousin to bread pudding. It’s made with stale bread, so if you have old bread about that you don’t want to go to waste, all you need to do is add some sausage, eggs, cheeses and spinach to make a flavorful and easy yet cozy […]


King Ranch Chicken Soup

King Ranch Chicken Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #green #chile #chicken #soup #recipe

I’m a northern girl, but my ex-husband is from Texas. Many, many years ago when we lived a lot further south than we do now, he mentioned King Ranch Chicken to me, I think hoping that I would make it for him. I did look up the recipe and thought it looked good, but not […]


Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza

Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza with Goat Cheese & Maple Balsamic Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thincrust #pizza #recipe

with goat cheese, zucchini ribbons, sweet onions and a maple balsamic drizzle  … Inspired by ChinDeep … plus a collection of fig recipes Or perhaps, since I “cheated” on the crust and used a tortilla in place of the pizza crust, we should call it a Tortizza?  Whatever you call it, it’s easy, delicious, and on […]


Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #enchilada #recipe

Chicken enchilada saga: part 2. I tried to finish the enchiladas my daughter requested for dinner in one night, but I just couldn’t do it on a weeknight. On a weekend, yes, absolutely, but you can’t rush a good enchilada TOO much. So the first night I made the chicken and the enchilada sauce while […]


Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken

Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #teriyaki #chicken #recipe

A super simple chicken recipe you can have on the table in 20 minutes. It is seriously that fast to make. While the rice cooks, you can have the chicken DONE. Toss in some veggies and you have a complete meal. If you add lots of vegetables, you might need to make more sauce. Fortunately, […]


Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad with Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

With Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing I bought a mango a while ago, dreaming of a mango chicken salad. At the time I bought the mango, I had intended to make it with strawberries, but then the mulberries started and I just HAD to use them on my salad. I went out with my […]
