Sunday Dinner

Last night as I was sitting around mulling what to eat for dinner, I googled Chipotle Chicken hoping to find the chain restaurants secret recipe.  I didn’t.  So, I thought, why not try one myself.

After some further research, a trip to Kroger, and a prayer, this is what I came up with.  It takes some preparation, but the reward is worth the effort.

1.  Cut 2-3 pounds of chicken breast into 3/4″ – 1″ square pieces.

2.  In ziploc bag, combine chicken and 2 cans of Chipotle Pepper with Adobo Sauce.

3.  Marinate overnight, turning and mixing every few hours to ensure thorough coating of the chicken.

4.  Heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil in skillet or wok.  (I chose a wok because I can get more chicken in it.)

5.  After wok is heated and oil runs easily, dump a portion of ziploc contents into wok.

6.  Cook until chicken reads about 155-160F on thermometer.  Remove chipotle peppers after 3-5 minutes of cooking.

I had just over 3lbs. of chicken to c0ok, so I separated it into 3 equal batches.  After cooking the final batch, I put all of the chicken back into the wok for a final heating and to add a little more flavor.  Below is the third and final batch.

This isn’t exactly like the chain restaurants chicken.  It has a little more spice (could be minimized with only one can of peppers) and it’s not grilled.  However, I love it.

Egg and Veggie Recipe

Today's Breakfast

I tried a new breakfast recipe this morning and was impressed.  I think I saw this on the CrossFit message boards, but I’m not sure. There is no good name for it, so I guess I’ll call it the “Reverse Omlet”.

1.  Layer a baking dish with your favorite diced meats and vegetables.  I used some bacon I had already cooked and both white and green onions.

2.  Add as many eggs as necessary to cover without allowing the yolks to overlap.  I used three eggs for this small dish.  I probably could’ve squeezed a couple more in there.

3.  Bake for 35 to 45 minutes.  I went with 35 and some of the onions thouroughly cooked.  Next time I’m going to add five minutes and see what happens.

4.  Enjoy!

I considered adding some cheese over the top about half way through baking but decided against it.  Overall, a quick and easy meal.
