Chicken Recipe Rally
I've got two for you...
Hobos? aka Boy Scout Dinners, Camp Fire Dinners, Pouch Meals
Cut chicken into bite size pieces, season to taste. Cut vegetables of choice. Fold large heavy-duty foil double and make a "bowl." Place chicken on bottom, then put veggies on top. Spoon 1/4 to 1/2 cup sauce of choice on top. Seal foil at top very securely. Bake in oven at 350 for 45 minutes or until chicken is done.
Ground beef/turkey is also yummy. Tender roast meat works. I like corn, onion, potato, okra, tomato, squash/zucchini, diced chiles. The Mighty Hunter likes jalapenos too!
Sauce? I do my rotelly chicken sauce. 1 can Rotel. 1 equal sized can tomato sauce. 2 T brown sugar. The Mighty Hunter wants Worcestershire in his - lots of it. Stinkerbell likes Worcestershire and brown sugar.
****Low WW Point Chicken Quesadillas
(2) 8" Whole wheat tortillas (98% fat free)
1-2 Tbs all white meat chicken
1 Tbs Rotel, drained
1 tsp diced chiles
Chopped onions, raw or sautéed in olive or canola oil, your choice (1 Tbs or as preferred)
Cubed hot pepper cheese – substitute milder variety pepper jack if preferred
Sliced jalapenos (to taste)
Pre-heat non-stick pan over medium heat. Drain all water off chicken. Transfer chicken to a bowl, sprinkle with chili powder and cumin. Using a fork, "shred" chicken into thin "slivers", mixing chili powder and cumin into meat. Lightly spread approximately 1-2 Tbs of chicken onto one tortilla. Spread Rotel, chiles, onions and jalapenos evenly on top of chicken. Distribute approximately 8-10 cubes of cheese on top. (If using shredded cheese, use 1-2 Tbs). Carefully slide into pre-heated pan and cover with 2nd tortilla. Allow to cook until bottom tortilla is golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Using wide spatula, carefully flip tortilla and allow to cook an additional 4-5 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from heat. Slice with your favorite pizza cutter and serve with fat free sour cream.
I also substitute cooked onions from time to time. Depending on what you use to cook them and how many you use, they probably add a point.
One quesadilla = 3 points*, approximately. The points were determined by using points calculator and calorie, fat, etc of ingredients. Rotel, chiles, jalapenos and raw onions are 0 points. 2 tortillas are less than 1 pt. Chicken is approx 1 pt. Cheese and cooked onions are approx 1 pt. All this WW point stuff is by MY estimation, which I readily admit is flawed and not scientifical at all.
Ok, not two. three...
******Chicken salad - nothing special, just yummy
2 cans chicken, drained completely and smushed with a fork
sm pecan pieces
This one of those non-recipe recipes. The only exact measurement I have for this is the canned chicken. I put in enough mayonnaise to moisten the chicken but not make it runny. I slice the seedless grapes and put enough in there to get a piece of grape in every or every other bite. I put probably 2 Tbs of the small chopped pecans. I put in enough onion to give it a little flavor, probably 3 Tbs.
This is great on some fresh loaf bread, on a cracker, in a bowl, you name it!
