Spicy Cajun Chicken Stew

Rating: 4.85 stars
This is my version of a spicy low-carb chicken stew I created while starting a flat belly cleanse. I don't measure so the measurements are approximate - adjust to your taste! It just turned out so good I had to share!

Hot Wing Stroganoff

Rating: 4.6 stars
This is a delicious fusion recipe my husband and I discovered. It's a blend of American hot wing flavors with Brazilian stroganoff flavors. We serve ours Brazilian-style over savory rice (cooked with chicken stock, onions, and garlic) with crushed potato chips on top, but the sauce is also good with noodles, tortilla chips, potatoes, or any carbohydrate.

Greek Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars
I'm not sure how 'Greek' this is. However, my father made this, his parents came from Cephalonia, and he called it 'Greek stew.' As with many such recipes, the leftovers are even better a day or two later.

This is an old, personal favorite recipe of mine. While not totally authentic, it celebrates the fabulous flavors of Cajun cuisine. Serve this thick sauce over rice.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Rating: 4.67 stars
Delicious white bean chili. Cha Cha says: 'It's kinda spicy, so watch out!' Substitute mild green chiles for the jalapenos if you're scared! Use more chicken and cheese as desired.

Oven-Braised Chicken Stew

Rating: 5 stars
With the convenience of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, you can have your dinner cooked in right about an hour, start to finish! Starting on the stovetop and moving to the oven allows double-duty for the oven, so you can bake bread for dinner at the same time.
