Honey Lime Sriracha Chicken

We grill out a lot in the summer so I am always thinking of new marinades. I've been on a Sriracha kick lately, so I decided to marinate our chicken in a mixture of honey, lime and Sriracha. We let the chicken hang out all day in the marinade and soak up as much flavor as possible. We threw it on the grill and it smelled amazing as it cooked! We both took one bite and were blown away. SO good! There isn't much heat in the chicken since the chicken was just marinated in the Sriracha. It would have more of a kick if you basted the chicken in the Sriracha. We served this with some of the Black Eyed Pea Salad and Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni. It was all fabulous!

Amaretto Pound Cake {KitchenAid Mixer Giveaway}

Pound cakes are one of my favorite desserts to make. They are so easy to make. I can whip up a pound cake in my KitchenAid mixer in the time it takes my oven to preheat. The key is to have all your ingredients at room temperature and measured out before you start.

This pound cake is SO good. It has incredible almond flavor. The cake is soaked in an amaretto syrup while it is still warm. The syrup keeps the cake super moist. I topped the cake with a quick almond glaze and some sliced almonds. YUM! I love almonds, so I was in heaven eating this cake!

Our friends at AllSouth Appliance are going to give one lucky Plain Chicken reader this 
KitchenAid Artisan Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer in Boysenberry.

I am in love with the color! I want it!

King Ranch Bubble Up

This was the best thing we ate last weekend. I made this for lunch and it was SOOOOO good! I wanted to eat the entire pan myself. Crazy good! I modified my Rotel Chicken Spaghetti recipe and turned it into a bubble up. It worked great. Serve this with some Mexican rice, black beans and/or a salad for a complete fiesta! 

I use Pillsbury Grands Jr. biscuits, not the big Pillsbury Grands biscuits. I think the smaller biscuits work better in the bubble up recipes. They don't crowd the pan and cook all the way through. If you want to use the bigger Pillsbury Grands biscuits, cut them into 6 pieces and throw one of the biscuits away. That will help ensure that the biscuit dough gets cooked all the way through.

Music City Eats {Nashville, TN}

We spent 4th of July in one of our favorite cities, Nashville, TN. 
We went to the Hot Chicken Festival and took a road trip to Kentucky (I'll tell you about that next weekend). 
We also ate at all new places and added about 10 new spots that we have to try.

We stayed downtown at the Hilton. It is such a great location. Right next to the Bridgestone Arena, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the new convention center and a block off Broadway.

French Onion Potato Casserole

NEW FAVORITE ALERT! We are in love with this potato casserole. I've made it so many times over the last few months. We just can't get enough of it. The recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Pam. She was given this recipe by an elderly lady at her church. She said it was delicious. I read over the recipe and was intrigued by the French Onion Dip in the casserole. Why hadn't I thought of that?!?!

This potato casserole is so creamy and delicious. I prefer to use Kraft French Onion Dip. I think it is the best! It makes the potato casserole so much creamier than using plain sour cream. This casserole makes enough for about 8-10 people. I divide the mixture between 3 foil pans and freeze them. I love being able to pull one out of the freezer for dinner. We love these potatoes! This is my "go-to" potato casserole now. Thank you so much for to Pam for sharing this recipe!!

Caprese Chicken Pasta

This chicken pasta has all the wonderful flavors of a Caprese salad - tomatoes, basil, balsamic and fresh mozzarella. I marinated the chicken in some balsamic vinaigrette. I let it hang out in the fridge all day so it could soak up all that wonderful flavor. While Chicken Legs grilled the chicken, I made the pasta sauce. The sauce had a few simple ingredients and came together in minutes. My favorite part of the dish might have been the fresh mozzarella. We both really enjoyed this chicken pasta. It will definitely make another appearance at the dinner table this summer!

All-Purpose Marinade

One of our favorite quick dinners is chicken marinated in Dale's sauce. It was one of the first things we grilled. We wanted to grill some chicken for lunch the other day and didn't have any Dale's. I whipped up this All-Purpose Marinade and we actually like it better than our beloved Dale's. It is definitely less salty than Dale's.

The marinade takes just a minute to whip up and uses ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. I like double the recipe and keep the leftovers in a mason jar in the fridge. We used this on chicken, but it would also be great on pork and steaks.

Pull Apart Cinnamon Rolls

A few months ago, I shared a recipe for Pull Apart Garlic Bread. It was to-die-for! I decided to make a sweet version of the bread. It was equally delicious! As with the Pull Apart Garlic Bread, I ate WAY too many of these Pull Apart Cinnamon Rolls. They are SO addictive. I kept telling myself "Just one more."

I spread the cut rolls with butter and then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. You could also use my Cinnamon Honey Butter recipe and just sprinkle sugar on top for a little crunch. These are great for a quick breakfast, brunch or even dessert.
