Tastes like 1987.

28 06 2010

This recipe tastes like 1987. My Mom used to make this one growing up. I remember requesting this meal for my Birthday meal on more than one occasion. It is simple, kid friendly and cheap! Tastes pretty darn good too.

Mom’s Picante Chicken
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1/2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1 T. olive oil
1 c. mild salsa or Picante sauce
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 c. cooked white rice

While large skillet heats up to medium heat, combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in shallow dish. Dredge chicken strips in flour mixture. Add oil to skillet. Fry strips in oil until golden brown and crispy. Remove from skillet. Remove any excess oil from pan. Place rice, salsa, and cheddar in skillet and combine. Fold chicken strips in and serve!

Chicken is a food aversion for me right now. I was thinking about you yesterday as I was staring into my pantry and looking at various food ideas that sounded yummy to me…spaghetti, fettuccine Alfredo, most Italian stuff. But the frustrating thing is, if it doesn’t taste as good as it does from a restaurant it’s not satisfying to me. I have such picky pregnancy taste-buds. And I thought to myself, “I bet everything Sherri makes always tastes better than a restaurants. I need her here.” šŸ™‚

Kristen- You are too sweet! Hope your aversions don’t last the entire pregnancy šŸ™‚ Oh, and I make my fair share of meals like pb&j, grilled cheese, mac n’ cheese šŸ™‚
