Cooking for two ~ Creamy chicken casserole

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.

 

Watcha need:

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.
