Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Goat Cheese, Corn, Peppers and Green Onions combine to stuff a chicken breast crusted in taco seasoned shredded potatoes. For a spicier dish use Chipotle chili powder. If you prefer your dishes a little milder then go with smoked paprika. A nice side salad is perfect to round the meal out. Note: reserve any remaining taco seasoning in an air-tight container.
I had a ham shank and some greens that I wanted to use up, but I was also on my way to work so I wanted it to be something I could cook in my slow cooker. After combining bits and pieces of other recipes, this is what I came up with. We ended up loving it so I decided to post it for safekeeping.
I took Aida Mollenkamp's recipe for Garam Masala Chicken with Roasted Vegetables and changed it to suit my purposes (using cornish hens, etc). I also reduced the oil simply because I didn't think that amount was necessary. For this recipe it's really important to have a probe thermometer that can stay in the hens while they're in the oven. After a few changes, this ended up delicious! Hope you like it too.
