I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Savory Rhubarb Chicken

Did you know that rhubarb is a vegetable? We see it used in crisps, pies and muffins but it's also used in savory dishes. This one combines tart rhubarb with onions and honey for an unusually unique tasting sauce for chicken.


1 medium onion, sliced thinly 

2-3 tbsps minced garlic

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tbsp olive oil

black pepper to taste 

1 tsp turmeric

1 cup canned diced tomatoes

2 tbsps honey

2 tbsps lime juice

1/4 lb rhubarb, chopped small

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1/2 scotch bonnet pepper, finely chopped (optional)

Heat olive oil in a skillet to medium and brown chicken on each side about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, on medium low to medium heat, fry the onion for 4 minutes then add the garlic and scotch bonnet for 1 minute. Add pepper and turmeric then the tomatoes and cook 2 minutes. Add the honey, lime juice, broth and rhubarb and stir together. Finally, return the chicken to the pan and bring to a boil then simmer on medium low uncovered for about 1 hour or until internal temperature reads 165°F. 

Plated here over spinach cauliflower rice.

Serves 4
