The Girls Wanted Chicken

Recipe Link HERE!

The girls wanted chicken, I wanted something easy.  So off to my pinboard!  I ran across this.  It’s not a pretty picture that was pinned- which being the visual eater I am I was surprised I pinned it, but the description said 4 ingredients (they description at the bottom of the pin is wrong- its not sour cream).  So I thought let’s try it!!!  I made some steamed veggies and mashed potato balls with it- another Pinterest recipe- but I’ll save that for another day!

Changes



I marinated the chicken in a little Italian Salad dressing for like an hour before I cooked it- other then that I didn’t do anything different!

Difficulty

0- Anyone can make this – I think Dennis could make this!

Did They Clean Their Plate?

Yep- everyone- Hadley had seconds!!!  It was really moist and really quite good!  We all liked it- I think it would warm up well for left overs.

Keep or Delete

It’s a keeper- it would be something easy to make on a school night when I have 100 things to do!  To be honest I could delete it because its so easy, but I’ll keep it there to remind me to make it every once in a while!

Recipe HERE!

 

Ok – so I did something I don’t usually do- I kinda did a comparison- a what????  I followed the recipe- sort of- and but changed a few things……  PS- I won’t make two very often- especially two ways so enjoy it while you can!!!

Changes

1- I had some ground beef and since I only had 1 can of chicken I did a half and half- I added a small individual chili can to the beef, some salsa, half of the cream cheese and put it inside the tortillas.

2-  I used Recipe Bacon Bits- way, way, way faster!!!

3- Who has time to cut those little circles- so I put the filling in half of the tortilla and folded it- worked awesome- you can cut them in half or thirds- really easy to eat!  A little harder to fry though

4-  I didn’t have fresh avocado, but I did have some Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie packs- so I added some sour cream, mayo, dill, a dash of onion powder and garlic (it already had the vinegar in it and onion powder and garlic, but I like those so I added more!!!)

5-  I don’t like frying so I baked half in my oven at 425- just had to put a little cooking spray on the outside of the tortillas!

Difficulty

Easy- Hadley helped with most of it- she did the guacamole and mixed the chicken mixture- I fried and did the oven.  Baking is MUCH easier then frying.

Did they Clean Their Plates???

Mom-  I liked the baked better then the fried- and I LOVE fried tortillas!  It was warmer and crispier!  The filling needed some spice- maybe some salsa or garlic- was a little bland.

On a scale of 5 I give it a 3.5

Girls- Hadley had both- she liked the baked chili tortillas.  Harper only had the chili.

4 year old eat half  7 year old ate 1 bite of the chicken and all of the chili.

No Dad tonight- he is working!!!

KEEP OR DELETE

Probably keep- it would make a good app for a party and the dipping sauce ROCKED!!!  Not sure I can eat plain old guacamole again!!!

Sorry for the crappy photo- didn’t feel like getting out the good camera- I served Birds Eye Southwest Protein Mix on the side- would be good mixed into either.  Left is fried and right is baked.
