Since we’ve been trying to pay attention to excessive carbs in our meals, I’ve been learning a lot. And I’ve also been cooking more than I used to. Actually, cooking and preparing meals that are lower in carbs seems easier than some of the meals my family used to prefer. Oh, we still have hamburgers on the grill, as well as spaghetti once in a while, and other ordinary stuff like baked chicken with rice or noodles . . . but I’m discovering that using different cheeses with chicken or riced cauliflower in place of regular rice is just as yummy and my family likes it, too. But I will admit that trying to figure out something new and different to do with plain ol’ boring chicken has been a challenge. So this week for the Home Matters Linky Party #202 when I realized that the theme was chicken recipes, I decided to broaden my culinary horizons even more than I have over the past couple of months. #Chicken #Recipes #HomeMattersParty
I have only had two slices of bread in the past almost two months, and that was because I was busy so I just quick made a peanut butter sandwich. Both times it was the same reason for grabbing the first thing at hand and slapping some peanut butter on it to give me some protein and energy. I survived, but the interesting thing is that I haven’t had any of those midnight cravings for high carb, high sugar junk food. Well, actually I rarely felt the need to get up in the middle of the night to eat . . . when I finally get a chance to sleep, I’m not interested in being interrupted for much of anything these days. I guess so many years of waking up multiple times every night with crying babies, sick kids, teenage drama, and all the other reasons that kids would wake me up at 3:00 a.m. has finally reached my lifetime quota of bolting up from a dead sleep to make sure everyone is still alive. Although there are still times when one of them peeks around the door of the bedroom and whispers, “Mom! Mom! Are you asleep?” Ummmm . . . I was until you just woke me up. “What’s the matter?” I inquire like a zombie waking from the dead. “Oh, nothing. I couldn’t sleep so I wondered if you were awake. Good night!” So pretty much no eating in the middle of the night for me!
But we were getting a bit over it with boring chicken breasts so I was really happy to find a few fun new ideas that can either be made up just the way the recipe is or can be modified to limit the carbs. So we’ll be trying a few of these chicken recipes soon, especially on these (hopefully soon!) cooler autumn afternoon and evenings when I don’t mind having the oven on for an hour or so before dinner time. Here’s what I found for this week’s chicken recipe roundup!
