Feeling Spicy

Thank you for all of your sweet comments on yesterday's post.  I now have a new-found respect for working moms.  Seriously, how do you do it?  I came home last night exhausted, but I couldn't have been happier to see my little guy. 

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you'll know that I'm kinda obsessed with chicken.  I think it's a blank canvas and love trying new things with it.  I guess you could also say the same for tofu, but I don't think I can get the hubby to eat it.

Before heading back to work, I thought it would be a good idea to defrost a bunch of chicken and cook it so that when I come home, I can heat it and eat it without thinking about anything else.  I was really in the mood for buffalo chicken, but didn't have any blue cheese dressing hanging around in the house.  I used the next best thing-ranch dressing.

Ranch dressing and hot sauce

Poured it over the chicken and baked until done.

It was delicious!  The hot sauce baked right into the chicken and gave it a little kick that made it taste amazing.

Question of the Day:
Are you a fan of spicy things? 

For me, the spicier, the better!

Until next time!

I love spicy things, but I didn't always. When I met my husband he always hid spice in my food to train my taste buds, so I could eat spicy food like him! LOL!

I love spicy food. I always have to calm down the spice when cooking for others.

I think I am definitely in the minority on this one because I can't eat a whole lot of spicier foods. I can definitely do a little cayenne here and there, but too much tends to overpower my palate and plus I have a super sensitive tummy! BTW, your comment about Michael leaving The Office..I totally agree! I don't know how they'll do it without him!

I love chicken too, I make it several times a week. Tonight I took 3 chicken breasts, cut them in half lengthwise, (to make skinnier chicken so it would cook fastster). So then I had 6 thinner chicken breasts. I seasoned with salt and pepper, sprinkled with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, and sauteed them in a little olive oil. I had leftover pasta sauce, so if anyone in my family wanted, they could pour pasta sauce over it. It was fantastic!
