The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Sriracha Glazed Chicken with Onions & Broccoli

Sriracha Glazed Chicken & Onions

There was a major victory for me in our house this week! It was succesfully feeding my husband brown rice after years of resistance. My husband is half Filipino and he grew up eating white rice everyday, he found it offensive whenever I even mentioned brown rice or when I ordered brown rice on my sushi rolls. Then the other day I decided to lay out the health benefits for him of brown rice compared to white rice; fewer calories, higher in fiber, fewer carbs and more magnesium. Once this caught his attention, I grasped the opportunity to serve this Sriracha Glazed Chicken over brown rice. He was quick to give his approval and now it's all history!

Now onto the Sriracha Glazed Chicken, it makes for a super easy weeknight meal. Nothing fancy, but for a Sriracha addict like myself it really hits the spot. You can throw it together in 20 minutes and it's healthy too! Keep reading for the recipe I adapted from MyRecipes, I add a lot of Sriracha so adapt how much you add based on your preferences.

Ingredients
5 tablespoons hoison sauce
2 tablespoons of ketchup
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons sriracha sauce
1-1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1 medium onion, sliced
3-4 cups broccoli, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced 
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 pound boneless chicken breasts, sliced
sesame seeds, for serving (optional)
cooked rice, for serving 

Directions
Stir together hoison, ketchup, soy sauce and sriracha and set aside.

Heat oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat. Add onion and broccoli and cook for 7-10 minutes, until tender. Add garlic, ginger, curry powder and chicken breasts. Cook for about 7 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Stir in hoison mixture, simmer for 2 minutes. Taste and add more sriracha for heat or hoison for sweetness. Serve over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
