I like to marinate my chicken breasts in lime(or lemon) juice and garlic and EVOO for an hour then slowcook it on the stove. Then I chop up an avocado, a white onion, and some cherry tomatoes...toss that with more lime(or lemon) juice and a littl bit of salt...top your chicken with the mix...sooooo yummy. I serve it on brown rice
sooooooo many to choose from :D
I made this last night and my family loved it:
3 large chicken breasts
1 jar of organic tomato sauce
Teaspoon of minced garlic
1/4 cup of oil (your choice, I used canola because I was out of olive)
3/4 cup of cheese (I used fresh shredded parmesan)
Cut the breasts into small pieces. Sautee the garlic in the oil for a few minutes, then add the chicken ( I had to do two batches). Cook chicken until it is done, should be lightly browned. Put in a roasting pan, then cover with the tomato sauce and bake for about 20 minutes. When there is 10 min left, add the parmesan cheese and cook until it's melted. My family loved it.
I take chicken and put it in the crock pot with salsa and you can add black beans or whatever you want to it and cook it for several hours til done serve it with rice or again what ever you want.. it is great my kids love it and always want more..
