My First Experience With Sriracha Sauce (Can You Believe It)! Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli

I tried sriracha sauce for the first time… Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli. It was Sunday morning, and my husband was preparing the food list  for the week. “What are we having for dinner this week?” Ugh, the dreaded question he asks me every week!  I hate having to pick out dinners. It’s stressful to find new recipes because, what if it isn’t good? What if it’s too difficult?  What happens if I screw it up (pizza delivery, anyone?).  

I love Skinnytaste recipes, so I started with her blog, and found this Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli recipe and had to give it a try. I literally just said to my husband last week that I have never had sriracha! Not only was this meal SO easy, it was equally as delicious.  I even made extra for lunches this week. 

I hope you enjoy this meal as much as me and my family did!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day… blah blah blah. Yea, we know, but we also don’t have time for it. If it is not easy, I am not eating breakfast.  My goal is to come up with quick, easy, and healthy breakfast recipes, so here it goes…

I think I’ve been living under a rock, but I just went to Trader Joe’s for like the 2nd time in my life and discovered their Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. OMG this is life changing. I have been coming up with new “recipes” or “concoctions” to use it on. This morning I tried out a new way to use it, which was delicious and took all of 5 minutes to make. I might make myself another one!

When I say I am obsessed with this seasoning, I am not lying! Please share other ways I can use it!

                    Taco Pizza

                    Ok so this next one is one of my specialties. I call it the “Taco Pizza” only because I use a taco shell as my crust, there is nothing else “taco” about it. I have told you all before that I am really bad when it comes to eating lunch. I usually skip it, because it is too hard for me to come up with something easy to make. The one day I was in the mood for pizza, but the kid was napping, and I had no cash for pizza delivery. I brainstormed, and came up the the perfect solution! Let me introduce to you to… the Taco Pizza! Easy, healthy, and delicious, especially if you are a pizza lover like me.



                    “Taco” Pizza


                    1 soft taco shell – I used a low calorie one, I think it was Fiber One

                      2 tbsp marinara sauce (or you could use a pizza sauce, but I didn’t have that available)

                        ¼ cup of mozzarella cheese (shredded)

                          Toppings: broccoli, oregano, garlic power


                            Preheat oven to 375 degrees

                              Line a baking sheet with foil

                                Put just the shell on the baking sheet and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until browned

                                  Add sauce, cheese, and toppings

                                    Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted
