How to Make Chicken Stock With a Pressure Canner

…t writing this guest post, I thought it would be good to have another option for you to be able to make your own chicken stock (turkey and beef, too – it’s all in the bones!) – in addition to the traditional way to make stock on the stovetop and the Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Stock I’ve written about previously. Whatever way you find that works best for you, I’m happy to do what I can to encourage you to make your own…

Monday’s Menu

…the “thwack” of a paper hitting something with a fly on it. Lovely. Anyway, I’m breading some chicken for dinner as this friend and my husband are watching. I’ve gotten out the baking sheet and put it on the counter in front of them, then turn around to get something from the fridge. My husband comes in the kitchen and I hear a “clap” and then laughter. Turn around and see him pick a dead fly off the baking sh…

Slow Cooker Spiced Whole Chicken

Spiced Slow Cooker Chicken

Chicken is one of our family’s favorite food- we like it all different ways. And for pure convenience and frugality, you can’t beat a whole chicken cooked in a slow cooker. It takes about five minutes to prepare, 4 hours on high (7 to 8 on low) to cook and you can serve it for dinner one night, use any extra meat for another meal, and then make a soup or broth with the bones and remaining meat. Three meals from on…

Mexican Chicken-Corn Soup


…en jalapenos), or use fresh from-the-garden. It’s good either way. It also works well with chopped, cooked chicken leftover from another meal, although you can use raw cut-up chicken breasts as well as a couple cloves of chopped garlic, a chopped onion and grated cheese. Not pictured is the sweet red peppers that I was out of- but you know I never want to run to the store for an ingredient because of our cottage mentality “of making d…

…ar anything (this slaw is fabulous, and we eat this classic dressing often), so I was pretty sure that combining chicken, lettuce, parmesan and Caesar dressing was going to go over well around here. Yeah, they’re already asking me when we can have these again. Even better than that, this meal comes together quickly whether I use my Spiced Whole Slow Cooked Chicken or a rotisserie chicken from Costco (seriously yummy and…

…of fashion- what were we thinking?) is how easy meal prep is, and this recipe is no exception: Simply coat the chicken (I usually skin the chicken in slow-cooker recipes because, well…ummm, I just find the skin is often soft and rubbery, but it’s optional) with  a flour mixture – see how to cut a whole chicken into pieces for recipes like this if you’re interested. Now just start layering the other vegetable ingredients….

…rst experience with Ikea’s oak butcher block counters (link to the exact type we purchased). In our former kitchen we used pine a friend helped us sandwich together, since there was no Ikea in Oregon at that time. In our current house, we installed a beech Langan wood counter in our bathroom and were planning the same counter for the kitchen. But Ikea has trouble keeping them in stock at our Portland store and after waiting a year (we’…

Chicken-Lime Enchiladas

chicken-lime enchiladas

Chicken-Lime enchiladas are a nice change from regular enchiladas. The lime adds just a light, citrus-y flavor and the sour cream gives it a bit of richness (though I wonder if Greek yogurt would work, too?). Try it – I think you’ll like it! First, saute chopped onion in some olive oil, then add cubed chicken breast and cook until no longer pink. Add any vegetables you’d want like corn or pepepers. When using leftover chicken

You want enough to fill a large pot, about 8 cups. To make this really easy, I usually use cooked, leftover chicken that I add later, but you can start with uncooked chicken and add it to the broth to cook while you’re prepping the vegetables. Grab an onion,…
