Anyway, the "catch" is that it's what they call "milanesa" meaning it's sliced down to about 1/4 inch thick. Down here, they just throw it on a grill with lots of oil/lard and fry it up quick (usually a bit overcooked and dried out), however, that is not exactly on my diet.
Most recipes I find are breaded and fried, which I wanna steer clear of too.
Can you come up with a way to roll it or stuff it with something healthy or casserole it or otherwise make a tasty, healthy dish out of a good portion of it?
I've got 15+ lbs of it... I better find a way to love it!
sautee in olive oil (or veggie oil or whatever) - in a pan big enough for the following ingredients
1 medium onion :
add some cloves of garlic
cut 1/2 kilo of the chicken into pieces or shred it or whatever and toss it in with the other stuff.
Add 1 tablespoon chili powder (use something similar to the kind you can get NOB)
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
other spices you may like (salt pepper, powdered habanero, chipotles in adobo sauce, fresh hot peppers, whatever)
When chicken is cooked, add
16 oz. can of diced tomatoes (or its equivalent in Mexican canned diced or fresh tomatoes)
a 16 ounce can of some kind of beans, drained and rinsed (I often use black beans, but it doesn't really matter)
1 cup of chicken stock.
Let it all get hot. Makes about 4 1-cup servings. Eat some, refigerate or freeze the rest for later.
Tasty, healthy and good for you. South Beach Phase 1 compliant if anyone cares.
Play around with ingredients and seasonings.
Oh, I'd still like that BBQ sauce recipe
