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.

Butter Chicken

We love Indian food. But, it’s pretty expensive to eat out at the good restaurants all of the time so we like to make our own. Today, we made Butter Chicken in the crockpot so it could cook while we were gone all day.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 of an onion
  • 1 can (13.5oz) coconut milk
  • 1 can (6oz) tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 3 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder (add more for spicier and less for more mild)
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro

Directions:

  • Dump everything into crockpot
  • Cook 5hrs on low
  • Eat with rice and roti

Notes:

  • We like our food spicy, and with only 1 tsp of chili powder we found it pretty bland. Next time we make this we will be upping the amount of chili powder for sure.
  • We chopped the cilantro and added it to the crockpot, but you’re supposed to use it as a garnish after it’s dished. I say, do what you want.
  • With the whole can of tomato paste it came out a little bit too strong. Next time we will be cutting that down a little bit.
  • Our efforts in finding a decent roti recipe have failed us thus far, but we find that homemade tortillas are a suitable replacement.
