First Two Chicken Recipes for Use with Six Meals from One Chicken Recipe

There are so many ways the chicken from the Six Meals from One Chicken recipe can be used. Here are two I think you will enjoy.

Chicken Quesadillas

1 container of chicken from Six Meals from One Chicken recipe
1 cup medium salsa
2 tsp. garlic
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt.
8 flour toritillas
sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided into fourths

Put thawed chicken, salsa, chili powder, garlic, pepper, and salt in a saucepan and simmer until bubbly. Warm electric skillet to 300 degrees.

Place 1 flour tortilla in the skillet. Using 1/2 of one of the divided cheddar cheese, sprinkle cheese on the tortilla. Spoon 1/4 of the chicken mixture onto cheese. Top with other 1/2 of the divided cheddar. Place another tortilla on top, and press down. Cook until bottom is browned and cheese starts to melt. Using a large spatula, flip quesadilla and brown the other side. Lift out onto a plate. Repeat this process three more times. Serve with sour cream. Serves 4.

Chicken and Chile Casserole

1 medium to large tomato
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. oil
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 small can (4 oz.) diced green chilies, drained
1/4 cup sour cream
6 corn tortillas, torn into small pieces
1 container of chicken from Six Meals from One Chicken recipe
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Chunky salsa

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Chop the tomato. Add tomato, onion, thawed chili powder, garlic and oil to a small skillet and cook until onion is almost clear. Stir in soup, peppers and sour cream, and remove from heat. In a 9x9 inch pan, spread about 1/2 cup of the sauce over the bottom, then layer half of the torn tortillas and 1/2 the chicken on top. Cover with 1/2 the cheese, and repeat the layers. Cover with foil and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with your favorite chunky salsa, refried beans, and fried rice. Serves 4 to 6.
