Spicy & Sweet: Chicken Tenders with Mango Curry Sauce

I love fried chicken tenders. Last time I made chicken tenders, I went big and bold with my Chocolate Fried Chicken. This time, the fried chicken is normal, but the sauce it’s served with is out of this world fantastical! It is spicy and sweet, a jazzed up mango chutney with such an interesting flavor profile. The orange juice adds extra acidity to the store bought mango chutney, the soy sauce adds salt, the jerk seasoning adds spice and depth of flavor, the gochujang adds a spicy, funky flavor, and the lime adds acidity and brightness. This sauce is so amazing that you’ll be glad it makes more than you can dip your chicken tenders in. I mean, it truly is perfect for any application.

Updated Veggies: Buffalo Cauliflower

Let’s be real here. Vegetarian meat substitution products that claim to taste like the real thing really suck. Companies just can’t seem to make these frozen foods any good. And buffalo chicken wings? Best thing ever! But for those vegetarians or people watching their meat consumption, those spicy, saucy, finger-lickin’ good buffalo chicken wings have to be resisted. And that is one reason why this Buffalo Cauliflower is absolutely amazing! It tastes just as scrumptious as buffalo chicken wings, but is completely meat free! They are tender yet crunchy, smooth yet spicy. They are completely addictive and a healthier option to those tempting buffalo chicken wings!

Everything But The Kitchen Sink: Completely Customizable Quiche

Quiche, what a funny word. And what a funny concept: a pie made of cheesy eggs and any other random savory ingredients desired. But those funny things in life are some of the best things in life. I love quiche. I make it all the time. It is so easy and so delicious (I mean, what’s not to love about a savory cheesy custard pie with any meat and veggies of your choice?). I love it hot, room-temperature, or left-over straight from the fridge. And as a bonus, it uses up all those odds and ends stuck in the back of your refrigerator. So what’s keeping you from making it? Turn up that oven and start whisking!

Mug Cakes Don’t Have To Be Savory: Completely Customizable Microwave Mug Cornbread

What? A microwave mug cake that isn’t cake? A microwave mug cake that is, in fact, cornbread??? How is this possible? Yes, it is true. And it is, like the title states, completely customizable. You can add cheese and jalapeno to make the cornbread gooey and spicy, or you can add bacon and maple syrup to create the perfect sweet-savory balance. And no matter your taste buds, I recommend adding fresh or frozen corn kernels to add a sweet pop of extra corn flavor. So what are you waiting for? Let’s make some cornbread!
