Thai Turkey Sliders

Serve with Asian broccoli slaw-

We could not get enough of these (even the picky eater in the family)! It’s the perfect blend of all that we love about Thai food- a little spicy ginger, a little heat from sriracha sauce, salty fish sauce and fresh herbal cilantro. These make a fun dinner or a great appetizer at your next get together.

Slow Cooker Sweet Soy Braised Chicken Thighs

I am always testing Asian-inspired chicken recipes in the slow cooker but had yet to find one that stood out. I am a big fan of the podcast The Splendid Table with Lynn Rosetta-Casper. She also has great cookbooks and this recipe is adapted from a slow roasted chicken recipe found in her cookbook, The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Supper. It is very family-friendly receiving two thumbs up from my girls and I think the secret is taking some of the liquid and reducing it in a skillet as the sauce to be served with the chicken. I typically serve this with jasmine rice and steamed bok choy.

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Rice Bowl

The Green Lemon in south Tampa has crave worthy rice bowls that inspired me to make this slow cooker version that was a huge hit with my family. This is one of those easy, add everything to the slow cooker and walk away for most of the day recipes. We could all use a no brainer at dinner time for our most harried days!

Gyro Burgers

Serve with baked sweet potato chips-

I love gyros so much that I suffer through most crowded fairs just so I can eat this classic Greek sandwich. Now I am not equipped at home to make the shaved lamb/beef mixture, but I wanted to make a version of it at home to satisfy my cravings. I knew I could make a burger version with pita bread instead of a bun. Craving satisfied!

Ttzatziki sauce, a Greek cucumber yogurt sauce, is traditionally served with the gyro, but I have made the sauce optional, substituting plain yogurt instead. If you have the time and/or inclination, I highly recommend you make the tzatziki; it’s so worth it! You’ll find the recipe below in “The Whole Meal Suggests” section. It will not be added to the shopping list, so you will need to add these ingredients manually to your weekly list.
