So to continue with almost all of the same ingredients from the last two recipes, I give you My Faux Tex Mex Stuffed Chicken recipe!
This recipe is for the chicken and the "sauce" on top of it. Click here for my recipe for beans.
You will need:
* 2 chicken breasts of any kind
* some bell pepper(s) cut up in thin slices (to stuff inside the chicken)
*Some butter (to spread in your cooking dish)
*a handful of chopped green onion (cebolhina)
*Some Mexican taco meat seasoning, if you have it (if not, any spices of your liking will work, even just salt and pepper)
* olive oil
* a couple of pieces of fresh garlic (I guess you can substitute it for the purée de alho)
* some onion
* only 1 (more if you're brave or cooking for a group) pimenta dedo-de-moça (I can't figure out the name of this in English!)
Part 1: Prepare the Chicken
* Lightly cover your raw chicken with the taco meat seasoning or whatever spices you're using.
*Chop up bell peppers into thin slices and find a way to put the bell peppers inside of your chicken. This video is very helpful. I had thin chicken breasts that had been pre-cut by the butcher, so for each chicken breast, I put the bell pepper slices on one half, folded it over, and pinned the halves together with toothpicks.
*Use the butter to spread in your baking pan or casserole dish (mine was made of glass), or, if you don't want to use butter, put something on the pan to prevent the chicken from sticking and burning.
*Put the chicken inside the casserole dish and set it aside.
Part 2: Prepare your "Sauce" (I guess you can call it a sauce... a topping?)
*Chop up your onion, garlic, and pimenta dedo-de-moça into small pieces (I used my handy dandy food processor).
*Fry this mix in olive oil on low heat until the onions start to brown.
Part 3: Combine!
*Put this mix on top of the chicken in the casserole dish, like this:
*Sprinkle the chopped green onions on top of the chicken, and add in some more olive oil so the chicken isn't too dry.
Bake on a medium temperature (my oven is super old and the temperatures are worn off, so I just guess) for about 20 minutes-- until the chicken is cooked, obviously.
Take it out and enjoy! I only ate it with beans because I was too lazy to make rice, but if I had guests, I'd serve it with beans and rice.
