Easter can mean many a thing.
but often it will a family bring.
For a visit, a meal or a weekend fling,
what can be better than when they sing?
Happiness , smiles, giggles and hugs too,
a weekend full of love, I am all a goo.
Many a great meal we did brew,
one I will now share with you.
We had lots of company and of course lots of meals. When cooking for a .. hmmm crowd, easy is well.. easier, it allows more time with guests too.
Keeping in my theme though, cooking for two, I am going to shrink this down so it is more appropriate for two to munch on.
Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
cream cheese 4 oz (half a pack)
sour cream 3/4 cup
salt & pepper
2 garlic buds chopped fine
1/2 cup of milk or cream
1/2 a red pepper chopped
1 medium onion chopped
3 tablespoons of oil
The garlic, onion and red pepper are optional.
This can be served over rice, noodles or on its own.
How to do it:
Chop the chicken breast into strips that are bite size.
Dry them off with a paper towel, meat that is wet when you cook it, steams or boils. Season it with the salt and pepper.
Warm a frying pan on a medium high heat with the oil in it, add the chicken and stir it so it browns a bit, but doesn’t burn or cook. Just a few minutes.
Take the chicken out and put it in a casserole dish.
Do the same with the onion. Cook it until it is translucent. (you can see through it) But not browned. You may need a bit more oil in the pan.
Add it to the dish with the chicken. Put in the red pepper and the garlic.
In a dish use a fork to soften the cream cheese, add sour cream in small amounts, perhaps a tablespoon at a time and mix it together. Add the milk and carefully mix until smooth.
Pour it in the dish with the chicken and stir carefully.
Cover with a lid or tin foil and bake at 350 for about an hour.
Serve over the noodles or rice and watch Dad smile. 😉
If you like mushrooms, they are great in this, chop them up and brown them with the onion.
