Honey Balsamic Chicken

I feel like one thing you can’t ever have enough of are good chicken recipes. Chicken is my go-to protein: it’s lean, it’s cheap, and it can be prepared a myriad of ways. But sometimes, it gets boring. This recipe will change chicken forever. Well………..maybe not forever. But you’ll dig it. It’s a pretty quick […]

Easy Alfredo Chicken in a Skillet

Alfredo Skillet Chicken

In my old college days, Olive Garden’s “Never-Ending Pasta Bowl” was one of my favorite times of the year. The waitresses would take one look at my football player/shotputter frame and order me doubles of the refills. I’d easily put away 3-4x what anyone else at my table would…and I usually got the alfredo sauce, […]

Hot Wings Made Easy

If you take me to a pizza place, odds are I’m ordering a huge side of hot wings as part of my meal. Buffalo, teriyaki, garlic parmesan, BBQ — I love any sauce you throw on there. A few years back, while planning for a Superbowl party, my wife found this recipe. Recently, we resurrected […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I’m a big fan of deconstructing meals. When I cook, it’s after a long, grueling day of training. Standing and chopping, stirring, rolling, basting, mixing, etc., is exhausting. If I can take a delicious, fancy dish and make a lazy version that tastes just as good, I’m going to do it. I’ve done it before […]

Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf

When my wife told me this was on the menu for dinner, I didn’t have high hopes. When I smelled it cooking, I thought I might have been wrong. When I saw it come out of the oven, I knew I was wrong. When I took a bite, I was glad I was wrong. This […]

Greek Lemon & Rice Chicken Soup

I think there’s a big misconception by weightlifters and non-weightlifters alike. They look at a bigger guy like me and think, “Man, his diet must be terrible.” I have to explain to a lot of people when they see me at the local Waffle House with a plate of burgers and two chocolate chip waffles […]

chicken salad with apples and pecans

Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

I find lunches to be one of the toughest meals to plan. I either find myself making a “Tom bowl” (buy my ebook if you want that recipe, among others!), or eating leftovers. But this chicken salad has become a new favorite at lunchtime, and I find myself making it weekly. I’m lucky if it […]

White Chicken Chipotle Chili

It’s fall, y’all. Or at least that’s what my wife is telling me as she walks around with the ubiquitous pumpkin spiced-everything– lattes, candles, cookies…you name it, it’s probably in my house. So when she started making more soups (in spite of 70+degree weather), I was about to protest. But it just smelled so dang […]
