Even though I grew up in a major avocado growing state, California, I never actually tried an avocado or eating guacamole until I was in college. Let's just say I was a little picky as a kid. ...

5-Ingredient Sweet Chicken {Gluten-free}

After posting only desserts thus far, I figured it was time to post a long-time favorite main dish.  We love chicken around here, and this sweet chicken is definitely on my list of favorite meals.  The chicken stays moist and the honey-sweetened sauce tastes great over the chicken and rice.  While it bakes in the oven you have just enough time to get your  table set and a side of veggies or salad ready.
