.Chicken Enchilada Simple Chicken Enchilada

I’m guilty, sue me,  I love Americanized Mexican food… And how American is this! Take a traditional dish and turn it into a delicious casserole!! I love the convenience of making casseroles, they take half the time that it takes to properly make rolled enchiladas. My Dad was the first person I ever saw make enchilada casserole, and with six children I can’t blame him! Can you imagine the time that it would’ve taken to make enough rolled enchiladas to feed a large family, no thank you!

Garlic Citrus Chicken

Garlic Citrus Chicken Garlic Citrus Chicken

After I made this chicken Dan told me he never wanted me to make it any other way!! It was delicious! We live in California and our grocery store had some rather amazing smelling oranges when we went shopping and I got the wonderful idea to use them in dinner! After I finished cooking the chicken I took all of the liquid and boiled i down a little bit and turned it into an amazing sauce that we poured liberally all over our entire dinner, I made just the sauce a few days later and have since posted the recipe and you can find that here : Garlic Citrus Sauce  (I think this will make a fantastic marinade for summer grilling!) . I made the Parmesan Potato Wedges as a side dish with this amazing chicken and the flavors were perfect together!

Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

 

Until I made this I had never actually had tortilla soup, and this was a really good choice! As always I took about three different recipes and put them all together into something that sounded amazing! After this sat in the crock pot all day our whole apartment smelled amazing! When we made it I decided to use the tomato halves and I still think that I made a fantastic choice. We strained all of the tomatoes out of the crock pot and put them into our food processor and added some flour to thicken it up and it was so good! We froze the half that we didn’t eat and ate it the next week and I wish that we had made more because it was fantastic! Please leave comments and suggestions below and enjoy!

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Chicken

So. Good. I mean seriously, one of the best dinners I’ve ever made!  The bacon was obviously Dan’s favorite part, but I loved the dish in its entirety. The sweetness of the cream cheese mixed with the texture of the chicken and wrap the whole thing in bacon?! Out of this world! We are going to a bacon and beer party in the next couple of weeks and there are prizes for the best bacon dish and I’m seriously considering making this because it was that amazing!
