Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
I totally went off on a beaten path with this one. One thing led to another and next I knew I had a casserole. Where I started wrong was pulling boneless ckn thighs instead of breasts, BUT IT TURNED OUT SOOO DELISH!!! It's a must share...
After cooking the thighs as directed in the recipe, I cut them into chunks letting them shred the was they wanted. I sauteed 1/2 each of a red, yellow, and orange pepper. Threw in a 1/2 can of black beans, corn, and jalapenos letting them saute in a little of the seasoning mentioned in the recipe as well as a squirt of lime until peppers were just tender... The I took a box of Zatarain's Black Bean and Rice and stirred it into my veggies (cooking as directed on the box w/ less water).
While the rice was fluffing, I decided to make a cheese sauce out of Hollandaise. Now this is the secret, as the hollandaise was starting to thicken I added pico de gallo style salsa to it, cilantro and mexican style shredded chz (can't tell ya cup measurements as I just added a little bit at a time until I reached the desired texture). cooked until chz was melted and hollandaise was thickened.
Then I pulled out my casserole dish and stirred in the ckn and my rice creation, topped it with my chz mixture and popped it in the oven at 375* for about 20 mins, turned my oven on to broil LO and hit the top layer for a sec to make the chz layer just lightly browned and bubbly. Topped with some grn chives and ate with tortillas... REALLY WORTH A TRY!!!! SOOOO YUMMY
