Copycat Chicken Bryan

This restaurant favorite has seasoned grilled chicken topped with goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, and basil and drizzled in a luscious lemon butter sauce

This recipe has multiple parts to it and it does seem a little daunting, but if you time everything and read through the recipe a few times, you'll be good to go. I did include little tips for timing before the specific instruction set for different parts, so it's a little less overwhelming. The many parts come together and make this meal astounding. I have never been to Carrabba's and I'll be honest and say that the name made me think it was a Mexican food place. I was surprised to find it was an Italian grill restaurant (and I definitely want to go now). I am up for any recipe that has tomatoes and basil at this point. They all seem like winners. This recipe is different in the grill seasoning - that is one of my favorite spice mixes I've ever used - especially on chicken - and the recipe uses goat cheese rather than mozzarella. I'm still relatively new to goat cheese, but I do enjoy it thoroughly. Last but not least, you have the amazing wonderful lemon butter sauce that is too good it should be illegal.

Bacon Cheeseburgers with Spicy Mayo

A classic bacon cheeseburger topped with a kicker - spicy sriracha mayonnaise!

We eat cheeseburgers about every other week for the most part. I love burgers and like to make different variations. Honestly, this one is nothing too crazy. It's kind of just your basic bacon cheeseburger but the spicy mayonnaise is key. It's nothing too hard or crazy either, but the mayo, ketchup, and sriracha combined are the perfect condiment for this burger or really any burger.

Italian Baked Eggs

This delicious breakfast can be ready in under 30 minutes and it's SO easy to make!

For whatever reason, this week I'm posting my egg recipes :) This was before I went on my no-egg yolk deal, but I'm sure it would be too easy to just do egg whites. I love how absolutely easy this recipe is. You really just throw everything in a ramekin and bake it and that's it. I mixed our eggs slightly because Nick and I don't really eat our yolks runny. I may occasionally have a sunny side up egg, but it's very rare.

Chicken Pot Pie Noodle Soup

All the flavors of pot pie turned into a hearty soup that is ready in under 30 minutes!

I'm sure I've talked about it briefly over the years here and there, but I don't really care for pies - including pot pie. However, Nick and the big kids do like pot pie. So about as far as I get for compromising is making pot pie-like recipes without the pie crust like this soup. You can absolutely get away with canned chicken OR rotisserie chicken if you'd like - rotisserie chicken especially in the lemon pepper variety, I think, would make a fantastic substitute. This is totally comfort food and it pairs perfectly with a good hearty buttermilk biscuit.
