I got this recipe from my SIL. It looked so yummy I had to try it. And it was so easy. Being in the last several weeks of pregnancy I haven't wanted to cook very much, and so I look for easy yet still very tasty meals. This one, is definitely going on my list of things to cook again! These were a little spicy, you can put less cajun seasoning in if you wish, but my kids scarfed this down. My 4 year old kept saying, "Mommy, my mouth is stinging, but I can't stop eating, it's good!" So adjust the "spiciness" to your liking. :)
You'll Need: -4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts $2.00 -3 tbs. olive oil $.15 -2 tbs. Cajun seasoning $.25 -1/4 c. mayo $.50 -2 tsp. dill $.10 (I didn't have dill, so I substituted with thyme and it was so yummy!) -1 tsp. minced garlic $.05 (I grate mine so you don't bite on chunks of garlic, or you can use powder) -4 slices provolone cheese $.50 -4 slices tomato $.25 -Lettuce $.10 -4 hamb. buns $1.00 (I used homemade rolls and made them sliders, so for me this part was about $.25)
total: $4.15 for me. and about $4.90 for you. Not bad!
DIRECTIONS -Butterfly the chicken breasts and pound them out to be about 1/4" thick. -In a bowl mix, the cajun seasoning and the olive oil. -Baste it all over the chicken and then cook chicken on the grill or in a skillet. About 5 min. on each side or until done. -While chicken is cooking, in another bowl mix, mayo, garlic and dill. -Toast buns. Spread mayo mix on buns. -Add chicken on buns, then put cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce on top. So yummy! *I served this with homemade potato wedges and steamed broccoli.
I was in an experimental mood and wanted something spicy and simple. So this is what I whipped up. Surprisingly my hubby couldn't get enough of it and the kids too! It probably took me about 40 min. to make it, from start to finish. This recipe makes a 9x9 pan. Just add a little extra of everything if you want to make a 9x13 pan. p.s. Like my new hot pads underneath the pan? I made them! I'm obsessed now. :)
You'll need: -1 can shredded chicken $1.66 (you can use cooked chicken breasts, but I was in a hurry) -1 c. sour cream $.49 (bought 16 oz. on sale for $.99) -1-8oz. pkg. cream cheese $.99 (bought on sale and frozen-this works great as long as you give it time to thaw ahead of when you need it. I buy it at Christmas time when it's on sale and just stock up like crazy) -1 small can of diced chilies $.50 -2 c. mozzarella cheese $2.00 (bought 2-8oz. bags on sale for $.99 each) -1 can of cream of mushroom soup $.69 (bought on sale at a case lot sale) -5 or 6 flour tortillas (medium sized) $.90 -Salt and Pepper to taste
total: $7.23 (serves about 6 people-with normal portion sizes. Or 4 if you really like them. haha)
DIRECTIONS: -Preheat oven to 350. -Put cream cheese, sour cream, chicken, cream of mushroom soup, chilies & salt and pepper into a medium sauce pan. Heat it up till it makes a nice and smooth mixture. -Spoon some of the mixture into the bottom of your 9x9 pan. Just enough to barely coat the bottom to keep the tortillas from sticking to the pan. -Spoon a hefty amount of sauce into a tortilla. (Make sure you leave enough of the mixture to go on top of the enchiladas) Top it with cheese. Roll tortilla up "burrito style" and place in the pan. Repeat until your pan is full. I used about 5 or 6 tortillas. -Spoon remaining mixture of the sauce onto the top of the enchiladas making sure it's covered. Then top it with cheese. -Pop it in the oven and cook for about 15-20 min. or until cheese is melted and the sauce is nice and bubbly. -Enjoy! *I served this up with steamed broccoli and some leftover salad from the night before.
