If you ask anyone that truly knows me, they’ll tell you that when it comes to cooking, I rarely follow a recipe. Recipes, to me, are more like inspirational reading. (Unless of course I’m baking. Let’s not get crazy here).
Some of my very favorite “culinary creations” are dishes that I throw together when the pantry and fridge are looking stark.
Grocery shopping is scheduled for tomorrow; so tonight was one of those nights.
I am by all accounts, a novice chef. That being said- I couldn’t get enough of tonight’s accident- er, recipe. Obviously, I had to share (and posting it while it’s fresh in my mind means that MY family will get to enjoy it again- because I never remember how I make things, haha!).
*note: because I was using the last of some ingredients and because I never measure things, the recipe will be approximate and random. Not sorry. This is how I roll*

- 1/3 Onion
- Garlic or garlic powder
- Red bell pepper, chopped
- Herbs d’ Provence (1tbsp)

- In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1/2 cup of chicken broth over medium-high heat.
- Chop onion and add to chicken.
- Season with salt, pepper, herbs d’provence, and garlic.
- Add chopped red pepper and simmer until Chicken is cooked through.
- Remove chicken and set aside. Add brown rice and 1 cup of chicken broth to same skillet.
- Bring to boil and then lower heat. Cover and let simmer until rice has absorbed most of the liquid.
- While the rice cooks, cube the slightly cooled chicken.
- Add chicken and several “dashes” of Siracha to the rice. (Depending on how spicy you like it!)
- In another skillet or in the microwave, place a little cheese on tortillas and heat until tortilla is warm and the cheese is slightly melted
- Add chicken/rice mixture to tortillas, and finish with ranch (or which ever substitute you choose!)
I honestly had no idea how it was going to taste. And then I had seconds.
You’re welcome. 😉
