Baked Chicken

This was truly a simple recipe to make and perfect for a busy weeknight. The sauce was pre-made from a week ago. It’s called Hawaiian Garlic Chicken Sauce and I had prepared it to go with another fried chicken dish. The sauce was so delicious that I made extra and stored in a jar in the fridge.

Not only was the sauce perfect for chicken, but it would also do nicely with a stir fry dish. Or fish. Or tofu. It’s so versatile that I am planning to make another jar to last me a few weeks.

Check out this post and the recipe creator for the sauce. You won’t be disappointed. It’s truly delicious!

Lentils and Naan for Breakfast

I’m sure I’ve recently posted some dishes eaten at breakfast time. My ultimate goal is to eat foods high in protein, fiber, and moderate levels of carb for breakfast (and lunch). This way, I am able to burn the calories throughout the day since I am constantly on the go anyway.

This breakfast consisted of madras lentils by Tasty Bite and Naan bread from Aldi. I love the convenience of opening a package and having the meal ready in a few minutes like this madras lentils.

Have you tried Madras Lentils by Tasty Bite? It’s pretty awesome and frankly, my go to product for something delicious and affordable.

Clean Out Soup

On days where I buy meat in bulk I make time to portion them into meals I might later cook. For instance, I take time to debone chicken thighs and rid the skin. I keep the bones in a separate bag and use it for chicken stock or in this case, meat for my chicken soup. Sometimes, I also use the meat for stir fry dishes. I try not to waste anything from the carcass as it can yield another meal or two.

A soup like this is comforting and easy to make. I usually throw it whatever appropriate vegetables I have on hand or add other things. In this case, I added a can of baby corn. I also try to use up whatever noodles I have. Don’t you hate it when you have a quarter left of dry noodles in a box? Use them for soups like this. Thus soup has somen noodles. Somen noodles are great for soups.

Korean Spinach Salad

First time making this salad and it is garlicky and full of flavor. You can eat this by itself or with rice. Pair it will baked or grilled meat or fish and it will be perfect.

It is so easy to make and takes no time at all. Plus, it’s healthy and spinach has all the iron you need.

French Toast

I’m sure you’ve read that I love, love breakfast. In fact, I’m broadening my breakfast selections to mitigate the mid morning snacking.

This French toast breakfast was super fun to make and I was able to use up the white bread. I typically don’t buy white bread but needed it for something so of course, I had to buy a loaf.

I don’t usually make French toast, but in the occasion that I do, I make sure I enjoy it with syrup. I also love that the fruits are getting sweeter now that Spring is here.

And, oh, reaching 50 followers the other day is super sweet, too. I know it’s not much – but in my collective blogging it is rather a significant number.

Thank you, followers! Check my IG page @spoonfulofcrumbs. I guarantee you’ll find amazing recipes there.

Brussel Sprouts

When I was a kid, I remember hating this vegetable. I commented about it’s disgusting smell and ugly appearance. I didn’t understand why anyone would eat brussel sprouts.

That was then.

Now I’m in love with brussel sprouts. I’ve been in this stage of loving it and enjoying it for about a decade and a half. A friend of mine prepared it with bacon and, yes, the bacon changed me but even without it I am just as satisfied.

These roasted brussel sprouts were easy to prepare and quick to have ready for a weeknight meal or side. When I have a chance to eat at a restaurant I find myself perusing the appetizer side to look for brussel sprouts. And usually, I get it just to try.

Roasted Chipotle Chicken

If you like a little bit of kick, try this recipe. You can adjust the heat and make it to your own liking. I might have gone a bit overboard and added more chipotle peppers than I’ve wanted.

Perfect for grilling or baking, you can use chicken thighs or drumsticks. I often buy in semi-bulk quantities and process the meat by dividing it into meal size. Usually, 1-2 pounds of meat per meal is what I aim for. I might de-bone the chicken thighs and save the bone for stock or leave it as is. I usually take the skin off of the chicken thighs. Plus, processing it like this makes it easy to prep meals on a busy weeknight.

Do you prep your meat?

I love breakfast. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I really do! I rarely skip breakfast even if I’m only eating toast with butter or a bagel.

This particular breakfast consists of hotdogs that were air fried, avocados, and fried egg. It was very filling and delicious. Plus, it kept me full for a few hours before I raided the snacks.

Chinese Style Pork

This is a recipe intended for pork ribs but since I didn’t have pork ribs I went with it anyway.

So delicious and full of umami flavors, it is not only easy to make but the ingredients are probably right there in your pantry/fridge.

I’m partial to rice so I’ll say this is best served with rice although you can serve with noodles or a side of steamed vegetables. I imagine it would be great with corn or broccoli. But, really, whatever you like.

I recently looked up breakfast ideas from around the world because I’m not satisfied with my half bagel and butter in the morning. Even if I ate a whole bagel, you will find me constantly snacking by 9:30-10a. Not to mention I wake up super early and eat breakfast by 5:30ish.

So I got to thinking that maybe I need some high protein meal with carbs to curb my snacking. It’s no surprise that other countries eat foods one might find ideal for lunch or dinner. Some examples of breakfast food include curry and naan bread, which I would eat for lunch but couldn’t imagine eating for breakfast.

So I started changing my way of thinking to satisfy my hunger and keep me full at least until 12:30. This rice, corned beef, and egg combination is a common breakfast in the Philippines. I have prepared this for breakfast on the weekends but not (or rarely) on weekdays. I believe my excuses were: I don’t have time, that’s too much to eat, I’ll stick with waffles or bagels.

This kept me full! I wasn’t snacking at 9:30 and I didn’t eat lunch until 12:30 plus I made myself eat fruits for dinner since I consumed all kinds of carbs for breakfast and lunch.

Amazing, I think.

What are some of your breakfast meals that keeps you full?
