Chicken Chipotle With Rice

Recipe from Food Nanny Cookbook

serves 4 |  time: 30mins


Ingedients:

3/4 lb bacon, cooked and torn/cut into pieces

4 small boneless/skinless chicken breasts

Fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbs olive oil

2 cups sour cream

1/4 cup milk

1 7oz can of Chipotles in Adobo Sauce


Directions:

1. Start frying bacon.  If you are like me and have a hard time doing multiple things in the kitchen at once. Or if you are also like me and hate bacon grease popping on you and hide behind a screen then cooking bacon in the oven may be a better option. 🙂 lay bacon on a baking sheet that is lined with foil. Bake at 400 for 10-15mins, or until bacon reaches desired crunchiness.

2. Pound chicken breasts with meat mallet.

3. sprinkle generously with black pepper

4. In a large frying pan over medium heat add the olive oil. Saute the chicken for about 3 min. per side. Remove from heat.

5. Place the sour cream, bacon pieces, 1 to 2 chipotles from the can and 1/4 cup milk in a food processor or blender and blend well.

6. Pour the sauce over the cooked chicken and return to medium heat and bring to a boil. Stir the sauce into the chicken juices. Cover and let simmer until the chicken is fully cooked and sauce is like gravy.


Serve with rice and corn tortillas.

Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey
2-inch piece peeled carrots, diced into tiny squares
3 cloves garlic, chopped finely or a shake of garlic powder
2 Tbs cooking oil
1 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs oyster sauce
1/4 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cornstarch
1 stalk scallion, finely chopped
1 fresh and cold iceberg lettuce or butter lettuce


Mix all ingredients, other than garlic (unless using garlic powder) and lettuce, together and let sit for 15 minutes to marinade.

Place chopped garlic cloves in a pan with oil, lightly brown. Add the turkey to the pan. Stir fry, breaking up lumps so that the turkey becomes small little pieces. Stir fry until cooked.

Carefully peel off lettuce leaves, being careful to not tear leaves. Scoop spoonfuls of the turkey into the lettuce leaves.

You can top the turkey with or dip the wrap in different condiments such as: sriracha or sweet chili sauce.
