It’s been a busy week so far and I needed a quick fix dinner. I found a binder of recipes I’ve been printing off and haven’t found time to try. This creamy chicken seemed short and sweet, yet didn’t contain any seasoning so I added to it. Turns out it’s one of those “it was ok dish, but I would do things different next time” kind of meals. I have to agree with my husband that this tasted more like a casserole then meat that goes in a tortilla. I think I would definitely add some other flavors such as cilantro. If I used it in a tortilla again it needs cheese and tomatoes, but something is missing. It might work well over rice and topped with breadcrumbs and cheese. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s not not what I was expecting. It’s a simple recipe and took less then 30 minutes so it earns a badge for try it again for a quick meal.
Creamy Spicy Chicken
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast haves, cubed
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
½ tablespoon dry chopped onions
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Dash of cayenne pepper
½ tablespoon Mrs. Dash
1 tablespoon flour
½ cup chicken broth
½ cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon ketchup
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken and all seasonings then cook, stirring frequently until juices run clear.
Stir in the flour and ketchup, then the broth.
When sauce begins to thicken, reduce heat and stir in the cream.
(It looks yellow, but that’s because of the overhead oven light. I also had a hard time taking a picture and holding a spoon. 🙂 See the better picture below.)
Simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon the mixture into flour tortillas and serve.
So with that being said it’s a so so meal, just had higher hopes for it. Oh well on to trying new things, just makes you realize how good food really is until you come across something not so great.
What would you do different to change up this dish?
