I'm currently snowed in and a bit bored.  Don't get me wrong I love the snow.  This batch happens to be extremely beautiful, light and fluffy and gorgeous.  With all that said I'm a bit over the cold weather.  I'm longing for spring days.

Days the kids can be shipped outside without a few hundred garments layered between them and the sharp wind.

This boredom has prompted a spur-of-the-moment blog post.  People are always telling me they love the round-up posts where multiple recipes are showcased and they can then meal plan off those posts. Just reading that ONE entry gives them multiple options for dinner.

I also get a LOT of this....

"I have chicken breasts thawed and have no idea of what to do with them.  I want something that isn't bland and boring"

I hear ya.

Most of my dinner fails have come with boring, bland chicken as the main event.  Not only is the cook disappointed, but the looks on every one else's faces about make me want to crawl under the table and not come out until breakfast.

Because I'm a pleaser, because I love making people happy and because I just want to help that poor, pitiful chicken, I'm giving you 8 of my favorite mouth-watering chicken dinners. Trust me, there is nothing bland or boring about these!

Pass this one along to your friends.  Share it on Facebook.  People will love it!

These Sticky Sweet Bacon Chicken Bites are perfect for your pig and chicken lovers.  They are sweet, salty and have a hit of barbecue sauce brushed over them to make them sticky.  If you want to make them an appetizer, cook them as directed and place in a slow cooker on warm.  Serve with toothpicks of course!

My sister introduced me to these Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sliders a few years ago and I've made them a zillion times since.  Just enough heat to make them "buffalo style" they are great for crowds and family gatherings.  And don't forget the ranch or bleu cheese to drizzle down over them!

Ah....this one is my favorite.  Yes you can make your own Chinese take-out!  This Crispy Orange Chicken is stellar served over steamed rice and reheats well as leftovers {but you won't have any}. Make it just once and your family will be asking for it again the following week.

There for awhile we were having Taco Tuesday's in our house and these made the rotation a LOT. Letting the chicken cook in the slow cooker all day cuts down on the dinner prep and that melty cheese?  So good.  Top these Baked Chicken Ranch Tacos with whatever toppings you desire.

Creamy with a kick I'll call this one.  My Green Chile Chicken Casserole is hearty and filling. We eat it as a meal and we've been known to grab the bag of tortilla chips and scoop it up with those, topping with sour cream and salsa.  Either way - yum!

Can we first talk about this pastry dough?  I'd stuff anything in it and eat them up.  I usually keep these on the mild side for the kids, but feel free to add as much buffalo sauce as you like.  My Buffalo Chicken Hand Pies are great eaten fresh, as leftovers or frozen for a future meal.

As a mom I love one-skillet meals.  The less dishes to be washed the better.  My Lemon Butter Chicken is refreshing.  It's tangy, sweet, juicy and just wonderful.  Put it on your winter meal list to brighten your spirits when snowed in {like me!}

Fajitas are simple to make in the oven, did you know that?  Cut up your chicken, your veggies and let it all roast together in a baking dish.  These Oven Baked Fajitas are always fun - they come together in a flash.  Throw in peppers, onions, zucchini, corn, whatever you like, season liberally and you're done.

Which one is your favorite?

Any interest in a ground beef dinner list after this one?  That is FOR SURE another meat that can be booooooooooring.

Stay tuned!
