Easy Chicken Burritos

Four ingredients and 20 minutes are all you need for these Easy Chicken Burritos. Get everyone to the table and off happy & fed in no time.Side view of melted cheese on chicken burritos

Does this time of year leave you running around like crazy?  Soccer, baseball practice, end of school trips?  Trying to be 10 places at once leaves little time for your family to actually sit down for dinner together let alone spend time in the kitchen making dinner.

What does dinnertime look like in your family?

Growing up sitting down to dinner with my family was something that my mom made a priority.  Even though she was a single mom and worked different shifts as a local factory she always made it work. I’m thankful to her for that because I carried on the tradition with my family.  If we are at home, we are eating together no matter what.  No tablets or phones just eating and having conversations about our day.

A piece of Easy Chicken Burritos on a spatula ready to serve.

The beauty behind this dinner is using already cooked chicken.  I always keep shredded chicken on hand for shredded chicken recipes like this or my Chicken & Mushroom Subs.  The same holds true for pulled pork.  I will make a double batch so I can make BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza one night then save the other half to make Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese another night.  Double duty cooking is another way to make dinnertime doable on busy weeknights.

How to make Easy Chicken Burritos:

Start these easy chicken burritos by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and greasing a 9×13 pan.

To the bottom of the pan add about 1/4 cup of the thick and chunky salsa to the bottom.

Shred the cooked chicken into a bowl then add the rest of the salsa to it and stir to combine.  Add the chicken mixture to a flour tortilla one at a time then roll up and place seam side down in the pan.  Reserve about a 1/2 cup of the chicken to add to the top. 

Roll up and repeat with the remaining 5 tortillas.

How to make chicken burritos with just a few ingredients.

Once all the chicken burritos are made finish by adding the remaining chicken to the top then top with the cheese.

Bake uncovered in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is all melted on top.

Shred some lettuce, chop up tomatoes and any other toppings you like.

And here you are….

Chicken & Mushroom Subs

Not looking to spend a lot of time on dinner? Then I have the perfect sandwich for your busy Friday night. Chicken & Mushroom Subs on a steamed bun. Using pre-cooked chicken, sliced mushrooms and shredded cheese this is a one-pan wonder that will easily become your go-to meal.

Chicken & Mushroom Subs | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Well, we are heading into Mother’s Day weekend with lots of rain and dreary weather on this Mitten Movie Night. Trying not to get too down because we have really had great weather lately and it really was a long time coming.

What beer pairs well with Chicken & Mushroom Subs?

The beer: Michigan Honey Amber from Latitude 42.

This beer is such a unique mix of honey and citrus. The nice thing about this chicken sandwich is that it pairs so well with a big flavor craft beer like this.  For me, the perfect meal is this a great beer and a sandwich.

What movies pairs well with beer and sandwiches?

Tonight we are watching Super Troopers! We had a date night last weekend and watched Super Troopers 2 so naturally, we have to go back and re-watch the original classic.

How to make Chicken & Mushroom Subs:

Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and grease a sheet pan.

This sandwich is a great use of cooked chicken. If you have a rotisserie chicken on hand shred it up.  Did you cook some chicken in the crock-pot and have some leftover? Great!  Even boil 2 chicken breasts on the stove top. Whichever way you choose to cook your chicken breast shred it then add to the pan. 

On top of that add the sliced mushrooms. Pop into the oven and cook for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes take the pan out of the oven and add the cheese then put the pan back into the oven for another 5 minutes to let the cheese melt.

Chicken & Mushroom Subs | Bottom Left of the Mitten

For the buns, I decided that I wanted them to be steamed and not toasted.  I tried a little trick to steam buns in the microwave that I found online and it worked really well! Just leave them in the plastic bag (of course remove the bag tie first which could have metal on it) then microwave for 30 seconds, voila! Fresh steamed buns.

The sauce is simply made by combining 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 2 Tbs Caesar dressing.  This adds a creamy layer of flavor to the sandwich.

Slather the sauce on the buns then slide the chicken, mushroom, and cheese filling on to each bun.

Pair with some chips.  I recommend Better Made Garlic Dill Pickle!

Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic

How would you like to make up a chicken dinner that can be made all in one pan and bake while you lounge on the couch reading or watching movies? Am I speaking your language yet? This Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic is the perfect dinner for a great night in.

Break out the cast iron skillet and enjoy this Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic. This one-pan meal that is perfect for a great night in. | Bottom Left of the Mitten

So tonight for Mitten Movie Night I made one of my favorites, a simple chicken dinner.  I love nothing more than chicken with a light gravy and mashed potatoes.

What beer pairs well with Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic?

The beer: White Chocolate Blonde from Grand Armory Brewing

We picked up when we were out hunting for Hopslam.  With only a hint of chocolate, it went great with the meaty mushrooms, tender chicken, and light sauce perfectly.

What movie pairs well with a one-pan chicken dinner?

Recommended to watch: The Secret of Marrowbone.  This movie had me thinking about it long after it was over.  A little bit of horror with a surprise twist at the end.  So cuddle up because the weather is still cold and let’s get to the recipe for skillet chicken, mushrooms & garlic.

Break out the cast iron skillet and enjoy this Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic. This one-pan meal that is perfect for a great night in. | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Do you have a cast iron skillet?  If not this skillet chicken dish works well in a dutch oven too.  I’ve been using my cast iron like crazy since I got it this summer.  Before having one I always thought that it would be too intimidating but I was simply wrong about it. Easy to clean and you can make everything from burgers to dessert in it.

How to make Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic:

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.  On the stove heat the pan and add the 1/4 cup olive oil. On a plate add the flour, salt, pepper, and thyme.

Combine the spices and flour together then dredge each chicken piece into it then add them skin side down to the pan.  Cook for 5 minutes, flip over and cook another 5 minutes on the other side.

While the chicken is cooking chop the onion, clean the mushrooms and get the garlic peeled.

Once the chicken is cooked remove and put on a separate plate.  The chicken does not have to be cooked you just wanted to crisp up the skin.

To the same pan add 1 Tbs of butter.  With a spatula bring up the little bits on the bottom of the pan and add the onions.  Brown them until translucent for 2-3 minutes.  By now the kitchen should be smelling amazing!

Now that the onions are cooked add the liquids: wine and chicken stock.  Add the chicken back to the pan.

Then finally add the mushrooms and garlic on top of that.  Turn off the heat to the skillet on the stove top then put the whole pan into the oven.

Cook the chicken for 60 minutes but to keep it moist every 15 minutes take a spoon and pour the juices from the pan over the chicken.

While it’s cooking make up some mashed potatoes and a vegetable side.

Plate it up and here you are…..

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad #SundaySupper

Pecan Crusted Salad is full of flavor! Chicken, romaine lettuce, crunchy apples, dried cranberries, and an apple cider vinaigrette.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Next week is Thanksgiving already! Can you believe it?  Time to hit the ground running with the shopping, baking, school activities, and family gatherings wouldn’t it be nice to sit back and relax and still have a filling and satisfying meal that won’t weigh you down?  This salad is very easy and perfect to make between all the hustle and bustle.

Coating the chicken breasts in a pecan and cheddar mixture just adds an almost buttery crunch to it.  Then you get a sweet bite of apple and cranberries.  Add the creamy zing of the vinaigrette.  It just hits all the right notes.  Did I also mention that it’s really quite easy to make?  Yes, yes I did.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad | Bottom Left of the Mitten

How to make Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad:

Start by heating your oven to 375 degrees.  Taking the 2 chicken breasts split them down the center so you have 4 total thinner pieces.

In a food, processor chop add the nuts and the cheddar cheese.  Pulse until it has been finely chopped together.  Take a plate and add the flour.  Whisk one egg in a bowl.   Then on the final plate add the pecan & cheddar mixture.

On a baking sheet add parchment paper or tin foil, spray with cooking spray then get ready to assemble the chicken.

Dredge the chicken in the flour on both sides.  Now dip into the egg.  Finally, cover the whole chicken piece with the pecan/cheddar mix.  Place on a baking sheet.  Repeat with the last 3 pieces.

Place in the oven for 35 minutes.  Make sure to check and make sure chicken is cooked completely through before serving.

Chop the lettuce and apple and add them to a large salad bowl.  Sprinkle with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds.  Slice or chop the chicken and add to the salad.

Serve the dressing on the side or drizzle over as much as you or your guests like.

And here you are…..

Chicken a la King

Comfort food! Comfort food! Do you love comfort food?  If you do I’ve got a dish for you.  Creamy chicken, crunchy vegetables then ladled on top of cheesy potatoes (or noodles if you like) make for the ultimate comfort food. Make Chicken a la King for your family tonight.

Chicken a la King

What is best about Chicken a la King is that it doesn’t take too long.  Here’s a tip:  When I make any type of soup with chicken I usually take a whole large pack of chicken and cook it in a crock pot then freeze the leftovers for when I make recipes like this.  Cooking it in the crock pot not only saves time it makes it tender and tasty.  Now on to the recipe.

Chicken a la King

To start chop up the onions, carrots and celery.  In a pan heat 2 Tbs butter then add the vegetables and start to sautee.  Cook them stirring occasionally until softened, around 6 minutes.  To the vegetables add the Tbs of flour then stir until the flour is all combined with the vegetables.  This will make a roux to thicken everything up, but here’s the kicker, not too thick.  When this goes over the potatoes or noddles you want it to be smooth not clumpy.

Time to add the chicken stock.  Again stir everything together and let simmer for around 3 minutes.  Now add the shredded chicken.

How to cook Chicken a la King

The last ingredient that makes this so creamy is Cream of Chicken.  Add the can to the chicken mixture and heat through or 5 minutes.  For this I made some cheesy mashed potatoes.  Feel free to put this on top of regular potatoes or noodles.  And here you are….

Fall for me is easily my favorite time of year.  So much so that my husband and I chose it for our wedding.  It also doesn’t hurt that we live in a beautiful State that is at it’s peak during Autumn.  A few years ago for our anniversary we headed to Traverse City and I have to say that the drive up was just magical. Enough about ‘falling’ in love with Fall and on to the recipe.

Skillet Sweet Dijon Chicken & Potatoes | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This skillet meal is so simple.  It starts with chopping the yellow onion and sweet potatoes into cubes.  Take 2 chicken breasts and split it down the middle.  Season with salt and pepper.  In a cast iron skillet heat 1 Tbs of oil.  Gently add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes, flip and cook for 3 minutes on the other side.  You don’t need to cook through this is just to brown it and crisp the chicken.

Street Corn Taquitos

A sweet chicken and corn filling is rolled up in and fried to crispy perfection.
Street Corn Taquitos make a great appetizer or dinner!

Street Corn Taquitos | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Has this Summer been busy!  I have been doing so much around the house, we’ve been running around and I haven’t had much time to work on this little blog. Even sadder is it’s been weeks since I’ve celebrated Mitten Movie Night which is probably my favorite of all posts to do on the blog.  So let’s rectify that right now and enjoy some Michigan craft beer and these Street Corn Taquitos.

What beer pairs well with Street Corn Taquitos?

The beer:  Oval Beach Blonde from Saugatuck Brewing Company

Tonight I am pairing this dish with one of my favorite types of beer, a blonde.  This pairs perfectly with the crispy tortillas, the bursts of sweet corn in the filling and the creaminess of the mayo.

What movie pairs well with street corn themed appetizers?

In anticipation of the upcoming Eclipse I want to watch a classic from the 80’s that always freaked me out, Night of the Comet. I know it’s not an eclipse but it is space related phenomena so close enough.  Where are you planning on watching the eclipse?  The boys and I are going to our local library where they are having a watching party.  How exciting!

Street Corn Taquitos | Bottom Left of the Mitten

For the chicken, I cooked mine in the crock pot with some salt & pepper.

How to make shredded chicken?

To shred it I wanted to try something that I saw on Pinterest and guess what, it WORKED! Use a KitchenAid mixer to shred the chicken. I cut the chicken in half, put it into the mixing bowl and turned it on high.  Less than 3 minutes later beautifully shredded chicken without the work.  Genius!

Street Corn Taquitos | Bottom Left of the Mitten

How to make Street Corn Taquitos:

To the same bowl add the rest of the ingredients for the filling: mayo, cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice, corn, cilantro, cheese, and spices.  Stir to combine.

Add enough oil to the bottom of the pan that it will fry these up around 1/2 cup.  While the oil heats upstart assembling the taquitos.  Place the filling along the longest end, not too much that it spills out.  Roll it up.

Once the oil is heated up place the tortilla in seam side down.  Fry for 2 minutes, then flip.

Fry for another 2 minutes then place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

Work the taquitos in batches of 2-3 depending on the size of your frying pan.  Don’t overcrowd or they won’t fry properly. 

Serve with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and lettuce.

Tyler Florence’s Chicken & Sausage Etouffee

Chicken and Sausage Etouffee has spicy andouille sausage, chicken and a simple sauce that comes together to make one spectacular dish.

Tyler Florence's Chicken & Sausage Etouffee | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This Mitten Movie Night is the first in July!  Did you have a good 4th?  Last week instead of Mitten Movie Night I posted my Best BBQ Sauce recipe for #CookoutWeek.  It was an honor to be a part of it.

Tonight I am making a chicken and sausage etouffee recipe that I watched Tyler Florence make on The Food Network years ago when I was just getting into cooking.  It sounded great so I made it and have been loving it ever since.

What beer pairs well with Etouffee?

The beer: Bell’s Oberon.

Fun Fact: Oberon’s release is celebrated with ‘Oberon Day’…what a World we live in!  Check out all their other release dates here.

What movie is great to pair with spicy food and craft beer?

We are watching What We Do In The Shadows.  It came on Netflix and we started watching a little of it then decided to save it for tonight.  What I did see was hilarious and I don’t think you can go wrong with a ‘documentary’ about Vampires living together.  That’s my kind of humor.

Tyler Florence's Chicken & Sausage Etouffee | Bottom Left of the Mitten

If I described this dish in one word it would be ‘simple’.  However, using that word would lead you to believe that the flavor is pretty basic too-nope. Wrong.  If you’re looking for an easy meal with lots of flavors this is it.

How to make Chicken & Sausage Etouffee:

Start by chopping the chicken into pieces.  Sautee in a pan with a 2 teaspoons of the oil for about 5 minutes.

Chop the sausage then add to the pan.  Cook for another 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and sausage is crisp.

While the meat is cooking take the pepper, onion, garlic cloves and celery and add to a food processor.  Chop items until they are small and well combined.

Remove the cooked chicken and sausage from the pan.

Tyler Florence's Chicken & Sausage Etouffee | Bottom Left of the Mitten

To the same pan add chicken stock and the processed vegetables.  Start cooking over medium/high heat.

Add the chicken and sausage back to the pot.  Let the stock reduce by half until it makes a smooth sauce.

Crispy chicken is slathered in two different kinds of wing sauce then put on top of soft slider buns and topped with a crunchy Blue Cheese sauce.  Wing Sauce Sliders have all the things you love about wings on a slider!

I’ll be upfront right now. And this may make me unpopular but for a long time, I couldn’t even smell Buffalo Wing Sauce. In fact, it’s been over a decade that even looking at the sauce would give me chills. Flashback 2003….my husband had just won Virginia’s Strongest Man. We actually had friends in the area so we went out and celebrated afterward at a local wing place. Well, let’s just say that I ‘Celebrated’ a little too much **insert you shaking your head here because most of us have ‘been there’**.

But I can FINALLY say that after my pregnancy with my youngest my taste buds must have been awakened because I craved spicy stuff constantly and have been on the Wing Sauce bandwagon ever since. I’m like ‘Let’s put it on everything!’ Just like I do with these Wing Sauce Sliders.

Not only have my tastes changed over the years but my entertainment habits have too.  Now instead of going out and getting crazy I much prefer staying at home and spending Mitten Movie Nights making a great meal and pairing it with some great beer while watching some great entertainment.  Ok, now on to the food!

How to make Wing Sauce Sliders:

First, prepare the chicken. Cut the pieces down to size for as many sliders as you are expecting to prepare. After cutting them into as many pieces as you have buns (I had 12) pound them out with a mallet to thin them out. This helps to tenderize them and you don’t have to cook them as long so they turn out a little juicer.

How to make Wing Sauce Sliders:

Add vegetable oil to the pan. I usually use about 1/2 cup. Bring oil to a temperature that will ‘fry’ the chicken breasts. You can test by adding a little of the dredging mixture and see if it sizzles.

While that is heating up put 1/2 cup flour onto a plate. Dredge the chicken so it is coated on all sides of the chicken. Test to see if oil is hot enough. If it is, add chicken to pan.  Cook first side around 6-8 minutes–DO NOT TOUCH IT once it’s in the oil. I’m telling you, you want the crunchy part of this chicken to stay intact because it’s delicious and you will ruin it if you mess with it. Ok, rant over :’)

Flip over (again, only 1 time) and cook another 6-8 minutes. Remove from pan and let drain on paper towel.

While your chicken is cooking make up the sauces to go with these.

How to make Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce:

Mix all the ingredients together in a covered bowl. Once the chicken is cooked take the amount of you want to have the Garlic Parmesan sauce on it and add to bowl with the combined sauce.

Cover & shake. Go ahead and get your arm workout for the day.

For the Buffalo Wing sliders just take some Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce and add it to a covered bowl.

Just like with the Garlic Parmesan sauce shake the daylights out of it until the sauce covers all parts of the chicken.

How to make Blue Cheese & Celery Sauce:

The topper for these sliders is a Blue Cheese Sauce that is a perfect combination with the bite of the cheese, creaminess and then the crunch of the celery.  The perfect topping!

Put chicken onto your slider buns. Viola!

Take your sauce & slather it all over the top of your sliders.

Add tomato and lettuce so you get your veggies.

And here you are……

Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes

Can you believe it’s already been 2 months since Super Bowl?  Geesh!  This recipe is an inspiration from a dip that I made for it.  Quick Tomato Jalapeno Popper Dip from A Joyfully Mad Kitchen. Earlier that day I was browsing through Pinterest and found this recipe then made a special trip to the store just so I could make it.  Worth it! It was just the special treat I was looking for.

While I ate and ate…..and ate on it (I couldn’t stop myself!) I thought about how great this would taste if I used it for the filling in my Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Roll Ups.  Touchdown! I had a winner.  Pair it with some potatoes sprinkled with my favorite Cajun seasoning and we have a dinner, Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes.

For this Mitten Movie Night we are drinking some Rapunzel from Arcadia Ales and watching Office Christmas Party.  I know we are way off on seasons here but we don’t judge!  I really love Arcadia Ales and recently paired my Under The Troll Bridge Pasties with their Hopmouth.  That was a great meal and so is this one.  The fruit and hop combo cannot be beat with the spiciness of this dish.

The chicken and potatoes can be made in two dishes but cooked together to save the guess work.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Starting with chopping the potatoes and onions into bite sized cubes.  Drizzle with oil and Cajun seasoning then stir to combine and add to a small greased baking dish.

Thank you again to the Checkered Chef for letting me try out their awesome products!

For the chicken stuffing combine the jalapenos, chilies, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cheese, softened cream cheese and sour cream then stir to combine.  Slice each chicken breast horizontally to make 2 equally sized pieces-will make 8 in total.  Take a tenderizer with the flat side and pound out the chicken until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.  Spread filing on the middle of the chicken then roll.  Roll into the chicken coating then place in greased baking dish.

Put both dishes into the preheated over and cook for 45 minutes.  Plate, crack open a beer and here you are….
