When I was a young mom with little ones under foot, I used to think there were only two ways to cook chicken. Skin on breasts bathed in melted butter, sprinkled with salt and pepper and baked in the oven, or skinless breasts on the grill. That's about all I knew. So much has changed since then!

I am constantly stalking recipe sites like AR and others in search of yet another new recipe to try. When I found this recipe for chicken in walnut sauce I was a little leery due to cinnamon being on the ingredient list. But I forged on and man am I glad I did! This is an amazing recipe with delicious flavor. Juicy chicken with a savory sauce, you'll love it if you try it :)

We love chicken, and normally would think of pecans with chicken... But, I love walnuts also [Dr. Oz says walnuts are good brain food! LOL]. Saved this recipe and hope to make it for my family in the near future. tyvm

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
