CROCKPOT PINEAPPLE BARBECUE CHICKEN 🍍

Looking for a quick, easy, delicious dinner idea? I gotcha covered. This 3 ingredient crockpot meal is soooo good! I made it the other night, and it was a hit.

Here’s what you need:

• 4 boneless chicken breasts

• 1 8oz. Can of crushed pineapples

• 1 16oz. Bottle of barbecue sauce

Here’s what you do:

• Place chicken breasts in crockpot. Mix the barbecue sauce with drained pineapples in a bowl, and then pour it over the chicken. Cook on high for 4 hours. When it’s done shred the chicken in crockpot. I served it over cauliflower rice. Make sure to drain the pineapples, or else the sauce may end up watery.

EASY APPLE CRISP 🍁🍎

Have some apples you need to use?! We took the kids apple picking a couple of weeks ago, and got one too many apples! So I decided to use them up before they went bad, and made a quick and delicious apple crisp!

What you need:

• About 5 medium sized apples

• Graham crackers (I used 5 large squares)

• Butter

• Coconut oil

• Sugar

• Cinnamon

• I used a 6X10 in. Baking dish.

What you do:

• Slice apples into thin pieces. I didn’t skin mine, but you could.

• Grease baking pan with coconut oil and layer the apples in it.

• I put the crackers in a ziplock bag, and smashed them into little pieces, then sprinkled it on top of apples.

• Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar to your liking on top (I used a generous amount;)).

• Slice butter into thin pieces and layer it on top. I used about 10 little slices.

• Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.

• Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

GARLIC AND PARMESAN BAKED CHICKEN WINGS

Didn’t have a marinade at home, so I put this recipe together on the fly, and it ended up being so yummy!

What you need:

• Package of chicken wings or drums (I used about 3lbs)

• Salt and Pepper

• Parmesan Cheese

• Garlic

• I used a grapefruit infused olive oil, but regular olive oil and lemon juice would work just as well.

What you do:

• Place chicken in a large bowl, and add the oil, salt and pepper (I don’t really measure it out, just use my best judgement), about 4 cloves of crushed garlic, and about 1/3 cup of cheese. Mix it all together.

• I then line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray a little olive oil spray over it. Place the chicken on the sheet, and bake at 400 for 35-40 mins, flipping half way. I served it with a simple spinach salad dressed in a homemade vinaigrette dressing.

CAULIFLOWER SHRIMP FRIED RICE 🍤

As you can probably tell, I’m obsessed with making different kinds of bowls. Wether it’s with cauliflower rice, quinoa, couscous, or mixed veggies, its my go to for dinner most nights. Tonight’s meal was delicious and low carb!

Here is what you need (serving for two): 2 bags of frozen cauliflower rice, 1/2 a bag of frozen shrimp peeled and deveined, 1 bundle of chopped green onion, 2 cups of chopped baby carrots, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, 1 tablespoon of fresh minced ginger, 1/4 cup coconut aminos, 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons sesame oil.

Here is what you do:

1) Heat a large wok or pan over medium heat and add coconut oil. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper before adding to hot pan.

2) Cook shrimp in an even layer, turning once until pink (about 90 seconds per side.) Remove cooked shrimp from the pan and set aside.

4) Add cauliflower rice to pan with the baby carrots, sesame oil, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger. Cook for about 15 minutes or so until done.

5) Add the shrimp and scallions to the rice, and cook for an additional 2 minutes to warm shrimp back up.

6) I did not add an egg or peas to this recipe, but it would make it more like a fried rice and probably be delicious as well! I topped my dish off with some green dragon hot sauce from Trader Joe’s.
