Keep it exciting....

In the kitchen that is! Where is your mind?! *snicker* I've been tagged(I hate homework) by crazylady to do a food meme. This my friends is an easy (shut-up-Sen) one for me. I know, I was supposed to do this a week or month ago, but it sorta slipped my mind. No, I didn't loose my mind, I just forgot. I have lots of things rattling around up there. Plus, I'm old. You just wait. Anyway, you can call me "Rachel Ray". I really can whip up just about anything. Well, I don't bake. Ever. Hence the reference to previous blog (ass size). I can burn something as simple as chocolate chip cookies. Strangely enough they are always flat too. (not like my lower region). Go figure. So, I was trying to decide what to "wow" you with and decided I was going to share one of my husband's all time fav's. My special sweet fajitas. This is not a low-cal diet. Hint. hint, Sen........

Rony's "special" Fajitas made with Love

1/2 bottle dry white wine (use something cheap)
Finely grated peel and juice of 2 limes (I add a little more-naturally)
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1 t. dried leaf basil (I use fresh-but of course)
1 t. dried dried leaf oregano (I use fresh)
3-4 garlic cloves crushed (you can add more if you like garlic)
4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
2-3 T. olive oil
8-10 green onions (can use a large yellow or white onion also)
1 Red bell pepper sliced
1 Yellow bell pepper sliced (can also use orange or green although I don't like green bell peppers)
8 flour tortillas, warmed
1 cup dairy sour cream
Avocado chopped
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Prepare marinade for chicken. In a bowl, mix together wine, lime peel and juice, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, basil, oregano and garlic. Slice chicken breast into thin strips. Add to marinade. Mix well and marinate 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a skillet, heat 1 -2 tablespoon of the oil. Add green onions and bell peppers: cook until onions are starting to brown, but the vegetables are still crisp. Remove from skillet and set aside, Drain chicken, reserving marinade.

In a skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken (in several batches, if necessary) and fry quickly until golden-brown. Remove fro pan with a slotted spoon and set aside, Add reserved marinade to pan and boil until thickened. Return chicken and peppers to skillet; mix well until all ingredients are coated. Put tortillas on a plate. Place spoonfuls of chicken mixture in middle of each tortilla; top with sour cream, avocado and cheese. Fold, garnish and serve. Truly delicious!

First off....why am I the funny girl? I wanna be the cool hip Mom! Don't piss me off! Second....the grub I prepare for the tribe is quite simple. Nothing fancy, shmacny....I could look through a book if you want....wondering if you've had any phones due to your ass exposure. You can get in trouble for that ya know!!!! Too bad you weren't sporting the fact next time.....if you are having a bad day.....go for that look again, but just write kiss my ass with a little gloss first! They'll be shaking in their boots when Rony struts her cart by!

secret agent said...

sounds good
can we substitute lime juice concentrate and frozen veggies
and precooked chicken??? said...

Yes to the lime juice and veggies. However hte pre-cooked might not have the same effect. You know what I mean? I let the chicken marinate for about 1 hour. I know--I told you 30-40 but I dont' even follow my own directions!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

Do you cook with your apron tucked in your underwear? I hear it's a good look.

cougchick said...
