As I stated in my Menu Planning blog post, I’m part of the launch party for Eat at Home’s newest cookbook. (For more information about the cookbook, click here.)
Tonight Hubby and the boys are going to have the Memphis BBQ Chicken Tacos before heading to either work or our town’s block party. The recipe calls for cooked chicken. I used my Instant Pot to poach the chicken.
Since our area has a heat advisory, it was nice not having to warm up the kitchen in order to poach the chicken.
I used fresh chicken breasts today but you can use frozen chicken breasts instead.
What is needed for this recipe:
chicken breast or thighs, fresh or frozen
water or chicken broth
seasoning: 21 Seasoning Salute, Trader Joe’s seasoning salt, Everything but the bagel seasoning, or salt and pepper
My aunt came into town and helped me rearrange my pantry. Once I knew what was in my pantry, it was easy to decide what to make for dinner.
I had some Pasta Roni’s Butter and Garlic noodles, sundried tomatoes, black olives, chickpeas, and canned chicken in the pantry. What could I make for dinner?
I cooked up one box of the butter and garlic noodles and added the drained chicken to the noodles.
Once I cooked up the other box of the noodles, I placed half of it in the other bowl. With the other half, I added sundried tomatoes, black olives, and drained chickpeas. YUM! It sort of reminded me of my favorite dish at Piada.
This could also be called “Clean Out My Fridge Frittata.” We had a potluck breakfast at church on Easter morning. I woke up that morning trying to decide what I wanted to bring to church. Nothing like waiting until the last moment.
I thought about how I had spinach in the fridge. It was at that moment I decided to make a frittata. The rest of the ingredients were in my fridge or pantry so it was easy to put together.
You ca certainly add more ingredients to the fritatta instead of just spinach, mushroom, and onion. It would be delicious with cubed zucchini (add with the rest of the veggies), cubed bell peppers (add with the rest of the veggies), and olives (add with the Feta cheese).
