We eat lots of chicken in our house. It's a very versatile meat and can be found on sale quite often. There are so many recipes for chicken. Here are 3 of our favorites:
1. Chicken Alfredo-
2 lbs of boneless chicken, cooked & cut into strips or chunks
3 jars of Ragu alfredo sauce
2 lbs of angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti
1 onion, diced (optional)
1 pkg of mushrooms, sliced (optional)
Put chicken, sauce, onions & mushrooms in large pot and simmer for 30 minutes.
Cook pasta according to package. You can combine the pasta & sauce together before serving or dish it up separately on the plates. We prefer the latter. This recipe will serve 8 - 10.
2. Chicken Georgia-
4 lbs of boneless chicken breast, cut in strips
1 cup of butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cups of mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
2 lbs of angel hair pasta
Heat the olive oil & butter in a large skillet on medium heat. Add the chicken and saute until chicken is no longer pink. Add the onions. Cook for 2 -3 minutes then turn the heat down to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Remove the lid, cover the chicken with the mozzarella cheese then replace the lid and simmer until cheese is melted. Serve over angel hair pasta.
3. Southwest Chicken Stew
3 - 4 lbs of boneless chicken thighs
1 bag of frozen stir-fry peppers & onions
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
1 packet Sazon Goya seasoning
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup water
Put everything in the crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Serve in a bowl over rice and top with cheddar cheese & tortilla strips*.
For the tortilla strips, I just cut corn tortillas into strips and fry them in hot oil until crispy.
Those are just the beginning of my many chicken recipes. If you try one. let
