Sun-dried Tomato Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Baked Chicken

Sun-dried Tomato Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Baked Chicken
“This post was sponsored by Sargento Foods as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.”

I thought I would share 5 of our favorite Easy Baked Chicken Recipes including this Sun-dried Tomato Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Baked Chicken pictured above to help ease the dinner time burden. For me the hardest part of dinner is usually avoiding falling into the rut of the same old same old. We eat chicken at least 3-4 times a week.

I created all the Chicken Recipes for 2-3 chicken breasts so you can easily adjust the quantities to feed your family.

The first recipe we are making is Sun-dried Tomato Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Baked Chicken. Are you ready for the recipe?

Red White and Blue Patriotic Poke Cake

Red White and Blue Patriotic Poke Cake

We adore this Red White and Blue Patriotic Poke Cake, and not just for 4th of July, or Memorial Day.

The combination of strawberry, and blueberry filling makes this a favorite over a lemon yellow cake. It creates the ultimate mouthful of flavor explosion. 

I used the Lemon Yellow Cake from my Strawberry Shortcake Poke Cake, because it's the perfect vessel for the filling.

I was going to make a flag out of strawberries, and blueberries on the top of the Red White and Blue Patriotic Poke Cake, but my back pain won this round. I had forgotten until we had already sliced into it.. Oh, well.. Such is life. So, we decorated each piece with a half sliced strawberry, and blueberry.

I might have to make another video just for the strawberry, blueberry, flag on the top of the cake. As you can see from my Instagram pic from a few years back it's extremely easy to make. 

Let's make the cake shall we?

Ripe Olive Potato Salad

Ripe Olive Potato Salad
Thank you to California Ripe Olives for sponsoring this post.

Ripe Olive Potato Salad screams all things summer to me, and I love it! 

With BBQ season finally upon us I couldn't wait to share this Ripe Olive Potato Salad. It's perfect when you're looking for something a little more jazzed up than traditional potato salad. The sweet, tangy dressing paired with olives, and spicy dill pickles makes Ripe Olive Potato Salad a potluck favorite! 

I was lucky enough to have been invited to The Culinary Institute of America CIA to learn about California Ripe Olives, spend time talking with the growers, and enjoying delicious food using olives, including dessert! Yes, dessert too, and it was AMAZING! 

California Ripe Olive Committee is comprised of two family-owned canning facilities, and close to 1,000 growers. The canners, and growers take great pride in producing a high quality product. I was surprised to learn a large portion of California Ripe Olives are still hand harvested. Also, if an olives falls on the ground during harvest it has to be discarded.

Not all ripe olives are cured the same way as California Ripe Olives. The secret to purchasing really firm, and delicious Ripe Olives is making sure the labels marked California Ripe Olives. Other canned olives aren't processed the same way.
