Smoked Beer Can Chicken


This smoked beer can chicken is a juicy and affordable way to make dinner for your family. It’s better than any grocery store rotisserie chicken. I try to buy whole chickens at Sams Club as they come two to a package and are pretty cheap, I hear Costco has the same offering two to a package. Chicken Rub I don’t like to use a lot of sweet rubs when smoking meats mostly because I’m a diabetic, and my wife is always watching what I’m eating. So my go-to chicken rubs are Salt Licks Garlic Dry Rub and Killen’s Texas BBQ Rub. […]

Easiest Fried Rice


I love great Chinese takeout, and fried rice is always a must get! This dish is my homemade version with all of the flavors you would expect from a fried rice dish. Chicken Fried Rice is so easy to make at home, so ditch the takeout this week and give this homemade version a try – you’ll love it! You can use any leftover protein (beef, chicken, pork, shrimp) with this recipe. I love using leftover rotisserie chicken or smoked pulled pork.

This recipe is the easiest and full of flavor, and kids love it!  Well, at least my nieces and nephews really like it. This recipe is super easy. All you need is already made pie crusts, left over chicken my favorite is left over rotisserie from the grocery store.

Classic Comfort Chicken and Dumpling Soup


This Comfort Classic Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings recipe is a TX Foodie favorite.  It’s the ultimate comfort food dinner and is super easy to make!  Let’s face it; chicken for dinner is always a winner! When I talk to people they often times shy away from making this dish because they think they need to make homemade dumplings. Thats not correct, I use biscuit doe from the grocery store and it tastes fantastic. Now don’t get me wrong if you can make homemade dumplings then go for it it will be even more amazing!
