Easy Chicken Enchiladas

 

 

I hope your long weekend was fantastic and that you are enjoying the summer break. We have been on vacation since last week. I can’t even believe that I will have a senior, a freshman, and a 6th grader next school year.

Well, when it comes to kids, as you know, time flies, my friends!
Anyhow, let’s talk about this amazingly delicious cheese, not just any cheese, but Tillamook cheese.

I had the pleasure to test this cheese before it was available in my area, and we deeply feel in love. Now I see Tillamook cheese in my grocery store, and I couldn’t be happier.

When I posted short videos on my insta-story (Instagram), I got so many lovely and touching direct messages about Tillamook, and they want to see it too, so keep them coming.

Comment or send it to me to share it with everyone and, of course, with the Tillamook team. You guys made me so happy.
Have you ever tried Tillamook Cheeses? If you did, please do share it with us.

Tillamook is taking a stand for real food, they believe in quality over profit and that the hard work could never be outsmarted.

Needless to say, I love their positive message behind #DairyDoneRight crafting high-quality cheddar in the most natural way possible.

Of course, I am so excited to work with Tillamook this summer to show you the tasty ways you can incorporate their delicious cheese into your daily life.

Tell me what is your favorite way to use cheese? Your favorite dish?

Yield: 4 SERVINGS

Everything Bagel Baked Chicken

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Extremely tasty Everything Bagel Baked Chicken Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breast halves with the rib/bone and skin
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley per chicken breast
  • EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING:
  • 3 tablespoons Black Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons untoasted/raw Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Dried Onion Flakes
  • 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Flaxseeds or brown flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste

Instructions

  1. Make “Everything Bagel Seasoning”.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F
  3. Remove and separate bone and rib from each chicken breast as you can see in my pictures above. Leave the skin on because it creates a nice crust.
  4. Add a drizzle of oil on each chicken breast after you separated from the bone and rub top and bottom.
  5. Add Everything bagel seasoning on the plate and coat each chicken breast, top, and bottom with the seasoning, then dust it with dried parsley and place on previously greased/oiled baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle just a tad more oil on top of the chicken.
  7. Bake chicken for 40-45 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken and if the internal temperature thermometer reads 165°F (at the thickest part of the chicken) then the chicken is cooked and safe to eat.
  8. Allow chicken to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing it. This way the chicken is going to be juicy on the inside. All the oil that is leftover on the baking sheet, keep it to drizzle over the chicken before serving.

Notes

You can use chicken tights with the skin, however, if you do not like skin at all please remove it or purchase skinless chicken.

If you don’t have poppy seeds or flaxseeds, please omit, I believe that sesame seeds are must because it gives you that nutty sesame seed aroma, taste, and flavor. You can serve it over rice, salad, sandwiches, wraps, lettuce wraps, etc.

It is really delicious however you serve it. You can cook veggies on the baking sheet that you cooked chicken. Please, do not through away that leftover oil. It got so much flavor.

Chicken and Mixed Vegetables Stir-Fry Recipe

Chicken and Mixed Vegetables Stir fry is a simple and easy weeknight dinner, which makes it an excellent weekend meal as well.

My family typically seeks for stir-fry ones a week, so since we have so many amazing versatile stir-fry recipes I change vegetables or meat.

Every so often, I make it completely meatless. It completely depends on what we desire or have on hand.

CHECK MY AMAZING ASIAN INSPIRED MEALS INCLUDING MANY STIR FRY RECIPES.

I like prepping this ahead of time and freezing the ingredients, so it is relatively straightforward to put it together for a quick weeknight meal.

I thoroughly recommend getting some fridge or freezer bags or containers with lids and prep those ingredients ahead. It is life changing. I tried meal prep and that failed miserably.

Stir Fry Step by step

I grill and prep everything for a whole week, but my kids devour meat before my week even ends. So, for me personally, it was really not worth it. That being said, chopping vegetables ahead and placing it in the container just makes it easier for me to put together one meal.

I have a feeling that you will enjoy this Chicken and Mixed Vegetables Stir-fry as much as we did. It is just a wholesome meal that everyone enjoys.

Also, I have separated everything into sections since so many of you like that with my CASHEW CHICKEN RECIPE.

It is one of the most popular recipes from Asian inspired meals on my blog. So I have felt that you might enjoy all of my Asian influenced dishes.

Chicken and Mixed Vegetables Stir-Fry
Yield: Serves 4

Chicken and Mixed Vegetables Stir-Fry

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Chicken Tenders
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt + Ground black pepper a generous pinch
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger minced or sliced (1/2 teaspoon Ginger powder could be used)
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic cloves mixed or sliced (garlic powder could be used)
  • 1 inch Ginger minced or sliced (1/2 teaspoon Ginger powder could be used)
  • SAUCE (for one meal)
  • 1-2 tbsp. Gochujang Korean Chili Paste
  • 1 tbsp. Honey
  • 5 tbsp. Water
  • Soy Sauce to taste
  • VEGETABLES
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • Stir Fry Mixed Veggies any on hand, frozen or fresh; peas, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, etc.
  • 2 Garlic cloves mixed or sliced
  • 1/2 onion diced or sliced
  • Soy sauce to taste
  • RICE -Read instruction on the rice package/ or you may use noodles
  • 1 1/2-2 cup/s Premium Rice
  • Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • Garnish
  • Green Onion
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • Red Chili Flakes

Instructions

CHICKEN:

  1. Cut Chicken tenders (chicken breast could be used) into bite-size pieces. Place in the large bowl and add salt, ground black pepper, and dried parsley.
  2. Heat the wok and add oil, cook chicken over medium-high heat. Before the chicken is almost done, add garlic and ginger; stir it and cook with chicken until chicken is completely done about 5-6 minutes.

SAUCE:

  1. While chicken is cooking, combine together 2 tbsp. Gochujang (Korean Chili Paste), 1 tbsp. Honey, 5 tbsp, water and Soy Sauce to taste.
  2. Mix it well and set aside. You do not need much soy sauce since the chili paste was seasoned already.

VEGETABLES:

  1. In the other pan, stir-fry vegetables. You can use any vegetable that you have; broccoli, carrots, peas, mushrooms, peppers, etc. You can use Asian frozen veggie combo, or use fresh vegetables.
  2. Add a bit of oil to the pan and stir-fry until veggies are cooked but not overcooked. They need to still have a bit of crunch. If they are fresh add a bit of water so they soften faster, and if they are frozen you may defrost them and just stir fry for a minute or two until they are heated through.
  3. RICE: Cook rice according to the package.

ASSEMBLY:

  1. Pour sauce over the chicken and stir.
  2. Add vegetables and stir to combine everything.
  3. Cook for a few minutes or until the sauce gets thicker.
  4. Serve it over rice (OR noodles)
  5. Garnish it with toasted sesame seeds, green onions, and chili flakes.

Notes

You may use firm TOFU instead of chicken, or pork as well as thinly sliced beef. If you do not like GOCHUJANG or do not have it, you can omit and use 1 tbsp Oyster sauce. Oyster sauce is packed with sodium so be aware when adding soy sauce to the sauce mixture. I made a large amount of sauce that's why it looks a lot on the picture. I like to save it for later. GOCHUJANG is spicy, so if you cannot handle spicy you may use 1/2 tbsp. to 1 tbsp.
