I wish I could tell you how many times I hear how it must get mighty boring to only eat chicken, turkey, and fish.

But for me, it isn’t.  I take the fact that we don’t eat beef and pork as a personal challenge to get and be creative in the kitchen.  Rather than looking at is as just having a limited variety.

It's all about perspective right?

So I get creative by making modified spins on traditional recipes.  For example, instead of beef stroganoff, I make a MEAN chicken stroganoff.  Instead of pork chops, we have turkey chops, aka turkey breast cutlets prepared like pork chops.

And one of my favorites is my turkey burgers that are seasoned so well and tastes so good, you wouldn’t believe they weren’t beef if I told you.  And I probably wouldn’t tell you!

So that is why this recipe is so cool.
Sauces allow me to switch things up.
Add new flavors.
And, well, get a little (or a lot) creative.

This one is simple enough and takes hardly any time.  It’s great to dip chicken tenders in after being oven fried, or to make finger licking good wings you can’t pass up.

Now that I think about it, this would be good with a spring roll too!

Now my wheels are turning and that reminds me, I have been meaning to make spring rolls.  Adding that to next week's meal plan.

Whatever you decide to make it for, I am sure you will love it!

Here is a simple, easy, honey garlic sauce recipe you will be adding as a staple in your meal planning too!
