From Salad Wraps to Spinach Bites: Sunday Dinner

I love Sundays. Usually my husband golfs, and I go to the gym, and church. We’re both home about 2pm or so, and ravenous.  Today, I wanted orange chicken in lettuce wraps but I didn’t have any romaine. So spinach bites were born!

The recipe is easy and quick, and tastes so good. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top to finish off the Chinese look.

Orange Chicken

  • 1 tablespoon olive oilIMG_20170723_133338
  • 4 chicken thighs, diced
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 heaping tablespoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground garlic powder

Place diced chicken and olive oil  in a medium-sized skillet pan and heat on medium until white and fully cooked, or about 10 minutes.

Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated and add to the pan. Cook about 20 minutes on medium until the sauce has thickened. Use romaine to make lettuce wraps or spinach leaves like I did, for Spinach Bites, and enjoy!

Crispy Chicken Wings With Spicy Buffalo Sauce, Garlic Sauce and Orange Chicken Sauce (Paleo)

Happy National Chicken Wing Day! To celebrate, use my Crispy Chicken Wings  recipe to bake your wings to perfection and add one of my favorite sauces to finish them off!

Crispy Chicken Wings20160729_150650

  • 10 chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place a metal drying rack on the baking sheet.

Combine ingredients in a plastic bag or mixing bowl and make sure that all the chicken is well coated with the mixture. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.

Take the wings out of the oven and raise the temperature to 425. Cook an additional 40-50 minutes in the oven.

Coat the wings in your favorite sauce and enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons water

Make sure to thoroughly combine the ingredients (to disperse the cayenne pepper) in a large bowl. Coat your wings and serve.

Garlic Sauce

  • 20 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Completely de skin and peel the garlic, place into an oven safe container and add your olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake in the oven, covered with aluminum foil, at 325 for about an hour or until the garlic is roasted and soft in texture.

Take out of the oven and mash up the garlic mixture with a fork. Add in the butter, combine with the wings and serve.

Orange Chicken Sauce

  • 5 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground garlic powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds

Mix the ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated. Toss the wings in the sauce bowl and serve.

Chicken wings are easy and so versatile. With endless flavors and even more dipping options, they can’t be beat.

Orange Chicken

My take on orange chicken is sweet with a hint of spice and just delicious!
