The Cooking Channel: Enchilada Chicken Bake Recipe

This past week our air conditioner went out.  I was suppose to cook this dish Tuesday, but there was no way I was turning on the oven.  No way.  Today, I was able to make this Enchilada Chicken Bake, a simple quick meal and so many things you can use to substitute these items if you don’t have them on hand.  Here’s what you will need to make this dish.

6 – 8 pieces of chicken tenders (cut them into strips)

1 Packet of Enchilada Sauce Mix

1 Yellow Bell Pepper ( cut into strips)

1 Green Bell Pepper (cut int strips)

1/2 Onion

1 tbl spoon Minced Garlic

Handful of Basil

Shredded Cheese

Preheat your oven on 375 degrees

Cut up and prep vegetables.

Lay chicken strips inside dish.  Depending on how much fat your chicken has on it make sure to remove it. I do leave a bit on for flavor.

Now, we’ll pour on the enchilada sauce mix and after we’ve done that mix it all together well.

I served mine over brown rice.  It can be served over jasmine rice, quinoa, kale, spinach…….  or inside corn or flour taco shells.

Easy Chipotle Chicken Recipe

 

 

Here’s a quick and easy dish that doesn’t lack heat nor smokey flavor and only using minimal ingredients.  There are many days that I need a meal that allows me to multitask while I cook.

image

Ingredients:

8 Chicken Leg Quarters
Salt
Pepper
2 small cans of chipotle peppers or 1 large can
Another thing you’re going to need is a cooking dish that can go from stove top to oven and preferably has a lid.  I’m using my LeCreuset and it’s perfect for this.

Take your cleaned chicken and season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Next, add olive oil to the bottom of your pan and allow to heat up.

image

Make sure the olive oil has evenly distributed throughout your pan before adding your chicken.

Add your chicken laying face down so the skinned side has the opportunity to brown.  Once it has browned to your liking flip over and arrange neatly in your pan.  At this time your going to turn on your oven to 400 degrees.

image

Once all your chicken is arranged add your chipotle peppers laying them on top of the chicken.

image

Place top on pan and allow to cook 15 minutes on top of the stove.

image

Now it’s time to place your chicken in the oven.  I set my timer for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  If you like yours more on the rare side you can lessen the time. However, I like mines DONE! Done! DONE! Once your time is up remove from oven….

And your done!  Falling off the bone GOOD! Perfect for those that enjoy a little smoke and heat.  Another thing I love to do with the chipotle peppers, add them to a Ziploc bag and meat of your choice.  Marinate over night.  Throw on the grill or pop in the oven.  Superb!  Hope you enjoy the heat.

From Garden To Table: Sauteed Swiss Chard, Chicken & Feta Cheese Salad

A hot salad from the garden pleases every gardener.   Late yesterday evening I ran into the garden to find some extras to go along with some chicken tenderloins I baked in the oven.  I grabbed some….

1.Swiss Chard
2.Red Onion
3.Banana Pepper
4.Snap Peas
5. Cherry Tomatoes

image

I cleaned them all and chopped them up.  Drizzled a little olive oil in a hot skillet,  placed in my onions and snap peas first.  Let cook a bit and then I added everything else with the exception of my cooked chicken tenderloins (I chopped into bite size pieces).   While cooking I sprinkled in some pink himalayan salt, lemon pepper and goya seasoning and sautéing for appropriately 7 minutes or less.   Lastly, I added the chicken tenderloins (chopped into bite size pieces), stirred in and cooked for an additional 2-3 minutes. I wanted the swiss chard tender, but still having a bit of crunch and texture to all of the vegetables.

Served with crumbled feta cheese on top.

image

We love salads!! I think it’s time that I start making more hot salads.

Andys Fish Fry Seasoning

 

Just wanted to share with you one of our family “must have” in the kitchen cabinet. Andy’s Fish seasoning is the “BOMB!” I started using this seasoning 2 years ago while on vacation. Where we went we had to bring our own grocery. With a family of 5, it helps us cut down on the costs. Also we had to make sure we weren’t bringing a whole lot of grocery. Otherwise I would have to bring: cornmeal, flour & seasonings along. So, not only does the Andy’s seasoning help us cut down on cost it’s also Convenient. With a capital “C”.

Any-who, we’ve been fans every since. This is how I use it:
I take a Ziploc bag. Pour in the seasoning then place my fish in the bag, zip it up and shake.
Place my battered fish in very hot cooking oil & fry.

TIP: How do you know when fish is completely done? When it floats.

When fish is done. Take it out hot oil and place on a paper towel so that the oil will drain.

TIP: What is the best oil to use? Oil that has been used at least once. (drain oil after first use and use at least 1 more time. It helps fish to fry really well.)

If you too are a fish lover next time you’re in the grocery store pick up a pack.  You will not be disappointed.  When I checked out the website, I found out that they also have it for chicken and seafood.  That’ll be our next purchase.  We get ours from WalMart (cost approx: $2.50 sorry threw away the receipt) and they only carry the fish seasoning.  I was using this seasoning on my fish, shrimp, chicken & fried green tomatoes.  One bag was able to make my family of 5 both of these meals. 

This is Andy's Fish Seasoning on our ChickenIMG_0026-1

This is the fried chicken

 

Disclosure:  This is the view of my family.  We were not paid by Andy’s nor were we given the product to test.  This is one of our very own favorites.
