The cream cheese is the star in these enchiladas... I've never met a person who didn't enjoy these and they are so simple to put together. You can cook your chicken breasts for these anyway you want... I recommend putting a chili powder/garlic rub on them and baking them. You can also boil them in water and garlic salt, but the baking produces tender, flavorful chicken! Toss in some red pepper flakes to the chicken/cheese mixture for some heat!! Can't beat it! Recently I didn't have a can of the green sauce on hand, and had a crisper full of tomatillos! I made Recipe #51630 and WOW it was super. It takes of course a little more work and effort but it was really good. If you like tomatillos, give it a try when you have some extra time on hand.
We really enjoy this dish. It's easy to make and tastes great. I have made it with boneless chicken (baking for 35-40 minutes) and with bone-in chicken -- it's great both ways. The recipe comes from TOH Chicken Cookbook.
This recipe makes a very flavorful sauce that is perfect on chicken or used to jazz up plain rice. It is great to fix when you want to grill but the weather just won't cooperate! Even people who don't like barbecue love this sauce. I typically like to double it and set some aside for extra dipping
Prepare this dish in less than five minutes for the oven. Fast, but tastes like you simmered and fussed all day. It is similar to an Italian Chicken Bake recipe, but with a wonderful Southern Cajun Twist...thus, the name.
Spice it up as hot as you like or simmer it down for those with sensitive tastebuds. Slide it in the oven and you will have a delicious, healthy meal to bookmark in your recipe box for future meals.
In Decatur Alabama this is know through out the land. It kicks the beer can chicken to the curb and rightfully so. You will need a metal meatloaf pan or large glass meatloaf dish to fit the chicken in.
This is my great-aunt Delia's famous New Year's Day main dish, with notes for a cheaper version that my mom made most Sundays. It is so good that my sibs and I would fight (literally) over the last bits of rice clinging to the pan! Don't be tempted to replace the butter with margarine--this is a holiday meal, after all, and you just don't skimp for holidays! Also, don't forget to dry the poultry. If you don't, the butter won't stick to the skin and help crisp and flavor it. Oh, and canned mushrooms work fine instead of fresh.
I hope you enjoy this START THE DAY before recipe from TOH as much as we do. The original recipe says 1 to 4 teaspoons of salt, and so you might want to adjust it according to your personal taste. The original recipe does not specify boneless chicken breasts, but I have made this both ways. But if making with boneless allow less time in oven-about 50 minutes-you might need to remove and keep warm smaller pieces while biggest piece is getting done. This recipe reminds me of the tandori approach to making chicken. Try with toasted Panko crumbs.
