Do you need a fun idea for your kids’ lunch? I have a simple lunch idea for you. All you need is flat bread, meat, and cheese. You can use different meat and cheese each time.

Meat and cheese kabobs are very fun to eat. My girls, Katie and Sophia, loved eating the kabobs. I placed deli turkey meat and cheddar cheese on top of flat bread. Katie’s kabobs also had pepperoni on top of the turkey. I melted the cheese and then cut the flat bread into bite size pieces.

Here is my recipe for meat and cheese kabobs.

Do you love sweet peppers? Do you love bacon? If so, then you would love sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

My husband and I were grilling one evening and we were trying to think of a different side we haven’t had. He asked, “Do we have bacon?” I said yes. We then thought that grilling sweet peppers (we had in the fridge) wrapped in bacon would be perfect.

I played with the flavor of the sweet peppers and bacon and added seasonings that I thought would taste great on the sweet peppers and bacon. The first time we made these peppers, we used a half slice of bacon with no toothpick. Withhold a toothpick, the bacon fell off of the peppers very easily. So the second time we made these peppers,we used a whole slice of bacon and purchased toothpicks to hold the sweet peppers and bacon together.

What would be a perfect main dish to go with these sweet peppers wrapped in bacon? Steak kabobs or steak would be perfect.

Check out my recipe for sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

One of my husband’s favorite chicken meals is chicken cordon bleu. He especially loves the honey mustard sauce that is drizzled over the chicken. The flavors of the chicken, ham, Swiss cheese, and honey mustard sauce is a perfect mix.

The recipe I use to make my chicken cordon bleu is based on the recipe in the Cook This Not That! cookbook. Instead of buying panko bread crumbs, I make my own croutons and crush them to make bread crumbs. It is very easy to do if you have a toaster oven. The recipe calls for a Dijon mustard, but I use whatever mustard I have on hand such as Grey Poupons’s deli mustard.

Here is my recipe for chicken cordon bleu.

Do you love having options of simple and easy meals to make for dinner? There are days that I don’t have time or don’t feel like making a complex dinner. Do you have those types of days? I totally do. Especially after a long day. I have a great healthy chicken sandwich idea for you.

I created the marinade for the chicken with what I had in my fridge/pantry. I put ingredients together that I thought sounded good together. The flavor of the chicken turned out great. I melted mozzarella on top of the chicken and added spinach and a slice of tomato to the sandwich. For a side with the chicken sandwiches, add fruit such as pineapple, strawberries, and raspberries.

Here is my recipe for raspberry Italian chicken sandwiches.

Do you have those days that you don’t have much time to prepare a dinner? Do you need a meal idea that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare? I have something for you.

These honey bbq chopped chicken sandwiches are perfect to make when you are in a rush to get dinner on the table. Additional toppings can be added to your preference. A side with the sandwich can be something like carrots sticks and slices of apples.

I love making these honey bbq chopped chicken sandwiches in the summer time. It tastes great on a hot summer day. Sometimes I add a creamy flavor to the top of the chicken – freshly smashed avocado made into guacamole.

Below is my recipe for honey bbq chopped chicken sandwiches.

I cook chicken with two sides every week. To make things different, I like to switch up the flavor. I love cooking lemon chicken as well as orange chicken.

Orange chicken is a healthy option for a meal. The citrus from the orange gives the chicken a sweet flavor and leaves it nice and moist.

Here is my recipe for orange chicken.
