Pub Style – Maple Bacon Chicken Wings

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section” _builder_version=”3.22″][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row” _builder_version=”3.25″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” _builder_version=”3.27.4″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”]

At least up here in Canada, maple bacon chicken wings have been all the rage. From quaint pubs to bustling restaurants, everyone whos anyone has been scrambling to jump on the maple bacon bandwagon, adding their own unique spin on them to become the best of the best.

I ended up missing the maple bacon bandwagon and had to walk 40 clicks, but hey I’m here now and I’ve got something to say.

It’s time to put some freaking salt on those things!

It seems that so much emphasis is put on the sweetness of these wings that people completely forget about just how much the flavors of both sweet and salty  (my personal favorite flavor combination), can change a dish. As the lovely chefs in beautiful Banff, Alberta say: “No dish is complete without a little salt.”

So without further ado, the best of the best maple chicken wing recipe is here. (You can thank me later)

For my fellow keto lovers, this recipe can easily become lower carb by swapping out regular all purpose flour for almond flour, with the only noticeable change being slightly crispier wings. Of course, let’s not kid ourselves here… this recipe will be higher in carbs than most keto recipes thanks to the maple syrup and the maple sugar in my Backwoods Bacon Sea Salt Blend (see? again with the sweet and salty!)  but that’s exactly what makes them maple chicken wings!.

Personally, I’m a bit of an easy peasy, half-ass keto-er (as shown by my slightly squishy tummy and my neverending love for ice cream)  so a few extra carbs don’t bother me any.

Perhaps my diet is a bit more ‘slow carb’ than ‘low carb’.

So if you’re anything like me, ditch the carbs of regular flour by using almond and then embrace the maple-y goodness of the carbs you do keep. If you’re a die-hard keto fan (kudos to you!), save this recipe for your future treat meal and go all out. You won’t regret it!

Now -this time for real, if you’re ready for the best of the best maple chicken wings turn up “Sugar Sugar” by The Archies and let’s get started!

That’s all there is to these incredible, impossible to beat pub style maple bacon chicken wings!

Enjoy!

Freezer Friendly Gluten Free Keto Low Carb Recipes Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken | Low Carb – Keto Friendly

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]

As the workload gets harder, the house gets messier, and the days seem to get impossibly busier the last thing anyone wants to do is come home and slave over a hot stove (oh, and then proceed to spend another 20 minutes washing dishes -don’t even get me started).

My slow cooker has been my knight in shining armor on busy days like these for years… that is until I broke it while scrubbing it in the sink shortly after making this recipe.

As if I needed yet another reason to hate doing dishes.

Admittedly, I stared heartbroken at my shattered dinner hero for several minutes (all while wondering to myself why bad things happen to good people)  before finally moving it to its final resting place -the trash. So… I’m just saying that if you’ve ever been even mildly curious about trying flavored gourmet sea salts first hand, now’s a good time. Momma needs a new slow cooker.

But I digress, let’s not drag on with the (albeit overdramatic) sad stuff. As one last tribute to my lost dinner helper, let’s turn up “Want You Back” by the Jackson 5 and just get right into it!

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]

Want to turn up the heat?

Substitute the mineral sea salt with a sea salt that definitely packs a punch. Try Bold Jalapeno for a gentle heat, Prairie Fire for a dish that’s hot and smokey, Diablo’s Ghost if you don’t mind sweating while you eat, or go one step further and try our hottest salt to date: Hell Fire!

That’s all there is to this incredibly simple, tantalizingly spicy slow cooker buffalo chicken. All that’s left to do now is to sit back, relax, binge some Netflix, and enjoy the rest of your evening.

Health & Happiness,

Savannah

Spinach And Tomato Stuffed Chicken

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb”]

Extra veggies are never a bad thing, and in this case stuffing chicken with spinach and tomatoes (not only gets you eating another serving of vegetables) but makes this plain dish taste extra-ordinary! That was a little cheesy, I know. Let’s just pretend I’m cooler than I actually am.

What I’m trying to say is this stuffed chicken is absolutely to die for. It’s easy, moist, and jaw-dropping presentation wise. You know what they say, you eat with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth.

My family absolutely gushed over and fell in love with this dish, so much so that I’m actually making this exact dish again tonight. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with this recipe -and who knows? This may just become your family’s favorite dish too.

So what are we waiting for? Turn up “Dive” by Ed Sheeran and let’s just get right into it! …I’m on an Ed Sheeran kick right now guys…no regrets.

Serves: 4   Prep Time: 10 minutes   Total Time: 30 minutes   Preheat: 375

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_blurb title=”Ingredients” admin_label=”Blurb”]

 

  • 4 cups of baby spinach
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 12 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts, thawed
  • 4 tablespoons of feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste
  • Tuscan Sun Sea Salt Blend to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

 

Want a different taste?

 

Instead of Tuscan Sun, add a pinch of Roasted Garlic, Burnt Timber, Spicy Curry, or Prairie Fire Sea Salt for dramatic flavor in every bite!

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_blurb title=”Directions”]

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wash and drain baby spinach with a coriander very well. Go on and shake that thang!

In a large saucepan over low heat combine olive oil, baby spinach, tomatoes, and minced garlic. Saute until the baby spinach begins to wilt, which will only take a couple minutes. Remove from heat.

Slice the chicken breast lengthwise, about 3/4 of the way through the chicken -essentially creating a pocket. Place chicken breast onto a prepared baking dish.

Spoon spinach and tomato mixture with a slotted spoon into each chicken breast ‘pocket’. In each pocket, sprinkle roughly 1 tablespoon of feta cheese.

Top the chicken with oregano, salt, and pepper.

Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until cooked through. This depends on the thickness of the chicken breast, check at 20 minutes and gauge from there.

Once done, sprinkle the tops with parmesan cheese, then dish up and savor your little slice of heaven!

That’s all there is to this spinach stuffed chicken. Pair this with roasted garlic and rosemary mashed potatoes then start ringing the dinner bell because dinner is served!

Health & Happiness,

Savannah

Cowboy Up Salad

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”The Best Chicken Salad Recipe”]

Coming from a meat and potatoes kind of family, my mother fought a constant battle for years to get us kids to eat our freaking vegetables. While I love them now, (thank you mama) it wasn’t always the case. Now that I’m older and moved out like a big kid now, I’ll occasionally find myself falling into the same rut.

Why have a salad when I can have pizza, right?

My mom came to the rescue once again with this beauty and it’s meat & potato only eaters, cowboy approved! Time to saddle up, and get this salad on the table! In country spirit, turn up “Where The Green Grass Grows” by Tim Mcgraw and let’s get right into it!

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” src=”http://thehumblekitchen.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/tomatoes.jpg” animation=”off” sticky=”on”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb”]

Serves: 6   Time: 15 minutes   Total Time: 15 minutes

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”Ingredients”]

  • 2-3 chicken breast, cooked and diced
  • 1/2 cup of couscous, cooked
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup of sweet corn
  • 4 cups of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup of asiago cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup of red onion, diced

 Dressing:

 

 

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”Directions”]

For the dressing: In a jar or other sealed container, combine all ingredients and shake until well blended. Alternatively, you could put all the ingredients into a blender and blend it together (..but who wants to wash a blender, am I right?)

If you’re aiming for presentation: In a large bowl, toss in all the romaine lettuce. Then add all the other ingredients being sure to give each ingredient it’s own little section of the bowl so that they touch but hardly overlap. With its stark contrasting greens, reds, and yellows you can bet your family or friends will have their socks knocked off with a glimpse of this salad. It’s B-E-A-U-tiful!

Toss salad together with the dressing at the table when you’re ready to eat.

If you don’t give a damn: (Hey, no judgments here -I get you!) In a large bowl add all ingredients and toss together with the dressing.

This salad will keep for a week, but good luck keeping it uneaten for that  long!

[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” src=”http://thehumblekitchen.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/pumpkin-seeds.jpg” animation=”off” sticky=”on”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb”]

So there we have it! A filling, delicious ‘cowboy’ approved salad that will leave you wanting more!

Health & Happiness,

Savannah
