    Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich

    July 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been resurrecting a lot of classic recipes that I find in my Grandma’s cookbooks and giving them a modern day makeover. I came up with this recipe for an Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich using a classic kitchen hack where you marinate your chicken breasts in Zesty Italian Salad Dressing. This Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich reminds me of a play on a Vietnamese Bahn Mi Sandwich. A Bahn Mi Sandwich is a typical Vietnamese Sandwich on a French Baguette and stuffed with marinated meats, cucumbers, herbs and pickled veggies.  Last Sunday we were having Mister Tipsy’s Dad over for…

  • Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire

    My Aunt has been talking about this recipe for Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire for years. It was the first recipe she made for my Uncle on their one year wedding anniversary.  It has now been over 40 years and it is still a recipe that she makes to this day.  I was visiting for a few days and I asked her to show me how she makes this Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire and she did. Boy was it delicious. It is a very simple recipe that requires minimal ingredients, it has such great flavor. It is perfect for special occasions but it…

  • Shredded Chicken Taco Meat

    Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best ones. This Shredded Chicken Taco recipe is one I have always made in my crockpot and it is a quick and easy recipe for busy weeknights. It is also perfect for parties and you need to cook for a crowd. While it works perfectly in the crockpot I recently started making it in my Instant Pot on the days I forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. I have made this shredded chicken taco recipe from frozen chicken thighs and it also works really well. You will need a…

  • Chicken In Lemon Cream Sauce

    This recipe is fairly simple, but it is definitely not a easy weeknight meal. This is a nice dinner to make when you have some time to pour a glass of wine, put your favorite show on television and are prepared to spend some time in the kitchen.  I can’t remember where or when I have a Chicken In A Lemon Cream Sauce, but I know I have and that is why I wanted to make it.  The recipe sort of came about in a Fridge Forage situation, these are the ingredients I had on hand. I needed to make…

  • Summer Pasta

    August 28, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I am forever looking for new uses for the gifts from my garden, especially as Fall draws near. You can only freeze so much, and lets face it, frozen herbs and veggies just don’t taste as good as when they are fresh. I think anyone who has a garden also shares the same overwhelmed feeling as the tomatoes and basil pile up. I did some kitchen experimenting the other night with some of the items from our garden and came up with a Summer Pasta dish that everyone, even the kids, loved! Even better, we were able to use the…

    I love a good Chicken Parmesan dish, but frankly it’s A LOT of messy work to make it. Made the traditional way, it’s definitely not a recipe for a busy work week.

I got creative and did a little food research and came up with what I think is a pretty solid representation of the dish. All you need are a few simple ingredients. I got…
