Spiced Chicken with Warm Hummus

Sometimes the most difficult part for me when creating a blog post is the title.  I want to entice you to open the post so it has to lure you in.  This recipe is an amalgamation of two components: warm hummus and spiced chicken. But I made the decision to put the spiced chicken in […]

Pulled Chicken with Korean Flavours

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of recipes with pulled pork and pulled brisket for sandwiches, sliders and even tacos. Well, I don’t eat pork and I’m not a big beef-eater but I do like chicken a lot, so I started researching pulled chicken recipes. I guess shredded meats is the way to go this year.  […]

Although I followed most of the […]

Persian Chicken with Walnuts and Pomegranates

It may have been the […]
