She asked if I had some simple recipes that would leave enough for a second meal.
Translation: four pieces of chicken.
Found 10 easy recipes.
They can be increased if you have a bigger family.
Or want more leftovers.
Chicken doesn't get any respect.
It's a regular main course in many homes.
Cooked following the same regular recipes.
I know... the family has a few old favorites.
And the cook has a few old standbyes.
So the family gets bored.
Well, it's time to try something new.
It's also time to use up some more of those spices.
You did buy spices a few months ago, right?
Well, if you didn't, they're still in the stores.
So get some.
A couple of days ago I posted about Thyme.
Well, it's time to use it with chicken.
Sorry about the pun.
But I'm not sorry about this recipe.
It's chicken with a Mexican touch.
About the 'Serve with' line...
They're just suggestions.
Use what you've got.
Or what's on sale.
