Baking and the crumbs that go with it…

Fiesta Chicken – ahora! September 29, 2009

Most of my posts are about baking. Well this time I’m throwing in a bit of actual FOOD! It’s easy, quick and easy on the belt and the kids will eat it up (whew).

Preheat skillet with about 2 tbsp olive oil.

Chunk some raw chicken (it’s easiest to cut while still partially frozen) and throw it in the pan. Brown the sides.

While it’s cooking, sprinkle with cumin, chipotle powder, salt and galic to taste.

When done, remove and sprinkle with cheese. Toss into the microwave if you like it melted.

Lastly, top with some of your favorite salsa. Serve atop some yummy rice with a side of warm black beans. This, my friends, will go FAST!

Happy cooking!

January. That was my last post. It’s not because I was angry at post, or post was bad. It’s because…oh, who cares. What matters is I’m here now, lovin’ post. The sweet universe has brought a sweet friend back into my sweet life who has inspired me to write again. Thank you universe for bringing Wade back into my life.

Okay, this is a blog about baking. I have a new recipe that everyone seems to love. It fits right into my lifestyle and is super duper yummy.

Granola Bites

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly spray a 13″x9″ pan

In one large bowl combine the following ingredients:
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Press into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

Cool completely. Seriously. If you try to cut too early, they will crumble.

When cool, cut into 1″x1″ bites.

These are a great alternative for commercial granola bars!
