I hate chicken!

But I have some in the freezer that I need to use up.  Any suggestions for what I should make?  

I think what I don't like about it is that chicken tends to dry up a bit and I just don't find it very flavorful.

No Time To Cook Chicken

1/2 onion, cut into rings
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 cup sour cream

Put half of your onion and garlic in crock pot, top with chicken.  Put remaining garlic and onion over chicken.  Top with both soups and cook on low about 6-7 hours.  Thirty minutes prior to serving, stir in sour cream.  

This is great with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

I just made chicken tacos. Put the chicken breasts in a crockpot with some salsa and let it cook all day for like 6-8 hours and then eat it on tortillas with the fixings.

I'm drooling over here....

I'm doing this tomorrow night.  (He's working tonight.)  I try to keep a bag of frozen breasts in the freezer at all times.  All I have to do is thaw and boil for this recipe.

FAST AND EASY CHICKEN ENCHILADAS


1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese (low-fat is fine)


1 c. red salsa, your favorite (you can control the heat here for little ones)


2 c. chopped or shredded cooked chicken breast meat 


1 (15.5oz) can pinto beans, drained (black beans would work, but pintos are softer)


6 (6") flour tortillas


2 c. shredded Colby-Jack cheese


1 small can green salsa,optional (I added this one, basically more for garnish/looks)


Various garnishes, such as lettuce, tomatoes, chopped cucumbers or sour cream




PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9"x13" baking dish.


IN a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the cream cheese and red salsa.  Cook, stirring, until melted and well blended.  Stir in chicken and beans.  Fill tortillas with the mixture, roll, and place into the prepared baking dish.  Spread cheese over the top. (This is where I drizzled the green salsa over all.) Cover with foil.


BAKE for 30 min., or until heated through.  Garnish with your favorite toppings.
