Easy Chicken Salad on Naan Bread

Living in Texas it gets really hot… And sometimes I just like a really nice cold salad… And I love a salad on a great piece of Naan bread. I made this recipe one night when I was really in the mood for  chicken salad and Naan Bread! So I threw this together with items I had in the pantry and refrigerator.. it was quick,easy and super delicious.

It’s great for lunch and or dinner, it’s perfect for days that you don’t have a lot of time, but want something semi-healthy, and really flavorful! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

•You can either use one can of 12.5 oz chunk chicken or Pan fry a chicken breast, cut up into chunks. I love using extra lean chunk chicken from the can.

•1/3 cup chopped red onion

•1/3 cup Reduced sugar Craisins

•1 small tomato chopped in small cubes

•1/3 cup skim mozzarella shredded cheese

•3 heaping Tablespoons of olive oil mayonnaise

•1Tablespoon of lowfat Italian dressing

•Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

Mix all the above ingredients together in a medium-size bowl. Cover bowl with lid and put in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours to chill.

Serve on fresh Naan bread. This recipe makes enough for four chicken salad Naan bread servings.

I love serving fresh peaches on the side with this… And a little bit of cinnamon to the peaches, and you have a perfect meal!

Taco Shells “Taco night brings the
(blended) family together!”
“Getting the hang of making these tacos! Fun, Simple & easy
for this busy, full-time working mom AND my kids love
them!” ~Nicole Lemire (Mike’s ex wife!)
Here is what you need:
● Corn Tortillas (we love sprouted corn tortillas)
● Avocado or Grapeseed Oil (higher smoke point)
● Garlic Salt
● Limes (optional but highly recommended)
1. Fill a small frying pan with oil and turn on medium heat*
2. Add 1 tortilla and cook on both sides until lightly crispy
3. Remove from oil and fold in half with 2 forks to create a shell
4. Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste
5. Half of our house likes to top our taco shells with fresh lime juice
*Depending if you are using electric or gas stove, you may have to
play with the correct temperature setting to set the oil for optimal
cooking of your shells. We use medium heat on a gas stove.
We usually go through a ton of tacos on taco night so add more oil
to your pan as needed. We like our tacos with ground turkey or my
crockpot whole chicken, black beans, cheese, avocado, tomatoes,
Sriracha and lactose free sour cream.

Easy English Muffin Pizza

Peyton absolutely loves pizza… He likes just about any kind of pizza. His favorite pizzas are the ones his dad makes. So when he is out on the oil rig, it’s a little difficult for me to make pizza anywhere near as good as his.

His dad will make some pizzas and freezes them so he can have them when he’s  gone. Needless to say he always wants to eat the pizza right away! 🙂

So I tried to come up with an idea so that he’ll like and still get some sort of pizza… I used to make these all the time for his older siblings when they were young. I decided to teach Peyton how to make them.

I know a lot of people make these, But I know with me… Sometimes I’m so busy I forget simple solutions to big things. By having Peyton be able to make these himself, it helps both of us out and allows him to create his own pizza.

It’s teaching him a life skill, as well as allowing me some extra time, because he’s making them himself. This way he can also decide what he wants to put on it.

His favorite one is with an English muffin, two slices of tomato, six pieces of pepperoni, skim mozzarella cheese…garlic and Italian seasoning… Sometimes he adds onions. *

We toast the English muffin lately. Then put a slice of tomato on each side. Top that with some skim mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning with garlic. We then put that under the broiler for two minutes on high. Take it out… And three pieces of pepperoni to each side… Put a little bit more cheese on top of that, and back under the broiler for a minute and a half. **

This is great for lunch with a bowl of soup or you can make a couple of them.

Ingredients needed:

English muffin

Two slices of fresh tomato

Half a cup of skim mozzarella cheese shredded

Six pieces of pepperoni

Season to taste

*As with all Recipes… check for food allergies and use caution when using broiler.

**Cheese May be really hot use caution

Enjoy and as always thanks for reading our blogs and watch for Team Awesomism launch on September 15!
