This crispy chicken sandwich is my go-to recipe every time I’m craving a chicken sandwich. The chicken cutlet is slightly spicy, juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. the chicken burger is then served with creamy mango sauce, gourmet sesame bun, and red cabbage coleslaw. To make the spicy crispy fried chicken first you need to brine the boneless chicken breast or thighs with hot sauce and spices and let it chill in a fridge overnight. The next morning grab your chicken and dredge it in a dry batter, then dip it in ice-cold water. Repeat the process once more and set aside for 5 minutes then fry the chicken until golden brown.

Slow Cooker Salmon Bowls

Slow Cooker Salmon Bowls

For perfectly cooked salmon, look no further than your slow cooker! The gentle heat of the slow cooker is ideal for rendering salmon fillets flaky and moist. In this recipe, a quick chili spice rub gives the fish loads of flavor, although you can use any spice mix you like, or you can keep it simple with just salt and pepper. The salmon is delicious all on its own, but I like to turn it into a nutritious, flavor-packed meal with cooked grains, shaved red cabbage, avocado (or any veggies you like) and a Creamy Cilantro Yogurt Sauce or Green Sauce (make the sauce while the salmon cooks). The salmon is also delicious in tacos! Wrap the flaked salmon in tortillas with shaved cabbage, avocado and the yogurt sauce, or keep it simple with shredded Romaine lettuce, sour cream and your favorite salsa. Be sure to use low heat for this recipe, not high (high heat isn’t as consistent and will overcook the fish). This fuss-free technique can also be used for other fish varieties, such as halibut or swordfish. For more slow cooker fish recipes, check out my book, Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker!

Ultimate Romesco Sauce Recipe (Gluten Free, Vegan)

Ultimate Romesco Sauce Recipe (Gluten Free, Vegan)

It’s a sauce; it’s a spread; it’s a dip!! This sweet and smoky romesco sauce recipe is the superhero of condiments. Grilling the peppers and tomatoes imparts a delicious smoky flavor (I LOVE my Spark Grill), but you can cook them under the broiler instead (see the Tips below). This version is thickened with just almonds and pine nuts, making it naturally gluten free. Serve the sauce with this incredible Romesco Chicken, or on steak, fish or veggies. You can also toss it with pasta and gnocchi; slather it on sandwiches and burgers; or serve it as a dip with potato chips and Grilled Potatoes. For a gorgeous appetizer, spoon the sauce over grilled crostini (see the Tips below) with baby arugula and/or sliced basil and shaved Manchego cheese.

Back To School Lunchbox Ideas (Vegan+GF) – Sincerely Tori

Back To School Lunchbox Ideas (Vegan+GF) – Sincerely Tori

So it’s back to school time again and that means it’s time for some lunch! Whether back-to-school time represents making lunches for yourself or your kids, it’s never a bad thing to get some great ideas. Maybe you’re needing something to take to work or you do meal preps. I’m not really in any of these categories and I still love fun lunches. So while I’m not in school anymore (thank goodness) my youngest sister is going back to school soon. It’s had me thinking about I always seem to miss this opportunity every year to share these kinds of ideas. And that’s what today’s post is. It’s definitely more about the inspiration than a rigid recipe but I have included the links to some of the recipes I’ve used here.     Sushi Box: for the sushi I’ve used this recipe and added a little soy sauce. On the side are some carrots, zucchini slices, strawberries, green grapes, and sliced mango. For a small treat I added a peanut butter cup from this recipe.   Berries + Granola: for this one I’ve used some homemade muesli (but you can use any cereal or granola you’d like) and the chia pudding from this recipe. Along with that I added some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and sunshine raspberries. Then I added a little bit of homemade trailmix made from buckinis, cacao nibs, and pepitas.   AB+Banana+Strawberry Sandwich: So the sandwich is simply some thinly sliced strawberries and bananas spread with a little bit of almond butter. You can use any nut or seed butter you prefer. On the side I added some kiwis, apples, snap peas, and red bell peppers with some guacamole to dip in. I added some energy bites from this recipe. Now I know kids can be pretty particular so if you’re making these for a young one, definitely feel free to make swaps. I hope you’re getting as excited as I am about the coming season and I hope you got something from these ideas. 🙂
