"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

My secret weapon for fat loss is, and always has been, meal prep. If I'm crunched for time or feeling lazy, my food is right there, ready to reheat for lunch or dinner. And then I have no excuse to stray from my meal plan! I have always loved Buffalo chicken (especially since so much of my family is from Buffalo, NY!). And I am so excited that this is an Instant Pot recipe - it cuts down on my weekend meal prep time like crazy! If you're looking to reduce your carbs even more, you could swap out cauliflower rice. And this could also easily be paleo if you use cauliflower rice & paleo mayo! Happy meal prepping! <3

These marinated grilled veggies make THE BEST summer side. My husband and I like to make this to impress company. Follow the recipe exactly below or add your other favorite vegetables! As long as you give them some time to marinate, they will be bomb after grilling. You don't need to double the recipe if you're feeding a group - this makes a TON!

Strawberry & Chicken Salad

Strawberry & Chicken Salad

Strawberries come into season right at the beginning of summer here in upstate New York. I love using fresh-picked, local strawberries in my cooking. This salad has strawberries on top as well as in the dressing! Don't be afraid of having fruit with protein in a salad - it tastes amazing. Pro tip: make your own salad dressing. It's super easy and way healthier. I did an IGTV video on making an easy one-minute honey mustard salad dressing the other day - follow @rachel.reaches on Instagram for that content!

Chili Lime Salmon

Chili Lime Salmon

This sheet pan chili lime salmon is a zesty dish ready for any time of year! And it's QUICK - most of the time is spent letting the fish & veggies marinate. I love the heat of the red chili pepper flakes, but you can totally tone that down, if you want. I bet this could be done in foil on the grill, too! I encourage you to look for wild caught salmon and use local veggies & honey when you make this - let me know how it goes!
