Cuban Chicken and Black Bean Quinoa Bowls With Fried Bananas

I am on a huge “bowl” food kick right now. I think it’s all this healthy, fresh eating that I’m currently into at the moment. It seems that when it comes to healthy, fresh food it just works nicely in a bowl!

I don’t know, either that or I really just like making giant bowls of delicious food.

o….these Cuban Chicken and Black Bean Quinoa Bowls with Fried Bananas…..YES!


It is not an exaggeration to say that Japanese curry rice (カレーライス, pronounce it as “karee raisu”) is the national home cooking dish. Katsu curry is just a variation of Japanese curry with a chicken cutlet on top. Everyone, particularly children, love it. When Japanese people say “having curry tonight”, it is the Japanese curry that is made from the store-bought block of curry roux. Chicken cutlet (Japanese version of chicken schnitzel) brings the Japanese curry up to the next level. It’s so delicious and filling.


I am all for easy and delicious dinners. This one just takes a couple of minutes and tastes amazing.

And the best part is, it’s healthy. You can also cook in your other favorite vegetables like carrots, peas, broccoli, or water chestnuts.

If you are looking for a simple, delicious, inexpensive meal, the whole family will love, this is definitely one to try.

It is also full of vegetables, but your kids will love the flavor so much, they won’t even care.

This is one of the only ways I can get my husband to eat vegetables, and he loads up on this dish. But I can’t blame him, it’s so good, and so easy to make.

Taco Chicken Salad: Paleo, Whole30, Keto

One thing I love most about this Paleo chicken taco salad is how quick it is to whip together. After weeks of always prepping a regular chicken salad with the traditional ingredients, like mayo, grapes and celery, I needed to change it up. That’s when I started playing with different seasonings and veggies to add. It’s also a really great way to use up leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken!

I basically took the taco seasoning I use in my chicken taco soup recipe and mixed them in with the mayo here. Most mayo brands at the store aren’t Whole30 or Paleo. You’ll either have to make your own mayo, or pick up a compliant option. Primal Kitchen (code PALEOBAILEY for 10% off) has an awesome one made with avocado oil. You can get it from stores like Whole Foods, from Amazon, or Thrive Market at a cheaper price.

Garlic-Yogurt Baked Chicken

Baked Chicken can often be dry, but thanks to my wonderful yogurt marinade with garlic and thyme, our chicken breasts are not only moist and tender, but they are also super flavorful!

The marinade takes just a couple minutes to put together and creates an absolute amazing flavor. I like to marinate the chicken breasts anywhere from 2 to 6 hours, but even 1 hour is good enough.

Gonna let you in on a little secret. I like chicken, a lot. It could be the only reason why I haven’t gone the vegetarian route. If you look around zee bloggy, you’ll find a bunch of vegetarian-friendly meals, but very, very few meals that involve meat.

We had this lovely Garlic-Yogurt Baked Chicken for dinner. I treat my family very well. This is a serious, melt-in-your-mouth chicken dinner. I can’t even begin to tell you how often this appears on our table.
