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.

Oven Fried Fish

If you didn’t know, now you know! I’m an oven cooking Mama! Although I know my way around in the kitchen…… I’m all for easy peasy!

I don’t fry our food often. So, baking is my thing. I’m not saying this is healthier because I do use oil to coat my pan. But if you have kids around you while you cook, not frying on top of the stove makes me feel a little bit better that grease isn’t popping everywhere.

The first time I made this, my husband thought I fried it. He couldn’t believe that it was baked in the oven. Here’s how to do it & I’m going to keep it simple for you.

Step 1: Preheat oven at 450. I know this is higher than the usual 350 but in order to get the crisp taste, 450 is it.

Step 2: Prepare your favorite fish! Tilapia, catfish, perch etc. Rinse it, season it & batter it with fish batter or your traditional flour & cornmeal mixture.

Step 3: Oil (w/vegetable oil or oil of your preference) your pyrex or your favorite oven cooking pan. I’ve been using the pan that came with our stove for broiling. If I told you what happened to my large pyrex, you would laugh.

Step 4: Place your pan in the oven for approx. 4min. What you want is for the pan & oil to get hot.

Step 5: After taking pan out of oven, place your battered fish on it.

Step 6: Place fish in oven for 7-8 minutes. Flip over after the 7-8 minutes & cook the other side as well.

Step 7: Remove from oven & place on paper towel to remove any excess oil.

Step 8: Enjoy

Pancakes Fresh From The Oven

No matter how much I enjoy cooking a creative meal for my family, there  are a few things I continuously have a hard time perfecting. Rice, I make Uncle Ben look like Uncle Sam, potato salad & pancakes.

Every time I make pancakes it would always end in tragedy! I know. Wait until they’re filled with holes on top & flip them over. Been there done that & it never turns out the same way twice.

So, a couple weeks ago I was cooking pancakes & was thinking that I needed to buy a pancake griddle. Then I thought about the way I’ve been frying my fish lately.(That’s another post) the light bulb came on! That’s it! I’ll put them in the oven!

Step 1 preheat oven 450 (yep 450)
Step 2 mix up batter (in this batch I added frozen blueberries)

My little helper

Step 3 take a cookie sheet or any other oven pan you may have. I use the pan that came with my stove. I think it’s intended for broiling.
Step 4 lightly coat your cooking surface with vegetable oil.
Step 5 place cookie sheet in oven without pouring pancake mix on it. This is to get it nice and hot.
Step 6 take cookie sheet out of oven.
Step 7 pour pancake mix on sheet. (Large or small it’s up to you)


Step 8 place in oven.
Step 9 after 2minutes check on them. What your looking for is for the top of the pancake to look smooth & done. They’re not going to be done but this will let you know to flip them over. Flip them over & allow to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the opposite side.

There you have it! Some beautiful pancakes. I’ll NEVER EVER! Cook pancakes the traditional way again.
