November, really? I'm not sure where the time has gone, but I can't believe it's already November. Just crazy talk!! I guess the countdown begins until Christmas. So, 54 days until Christmas. You better get ready!! I'm going to try to shop local as much as possible this year. Amazon is such a temptation though.
I don't know if you know this about me or not, but my husband travels sometimes for business and since my kids are grown, I am left on my own. (Just a warning here. Don't try to break in my house. You won't like the results. That isn't a challenge, just a statement.) I don't love to eat out alone and I don't eat fast food, so that leaves me cooking for one. I usually eat pretty simply, but sometimes I just want something else.
This recipe I'm sharing today is something I threw together and man oh man, it is so good. I was so happy with the results. It can be made for more people, but this is the "for one" version. I made it for my mom too and she really liked it. To be honest, I don't really eat that much, so this lasted me three meals. The chicken breast was huge. I made it in a small slow cooker, one and a half quart size I think. I call it "Salsa Sour Cream Chicken for One". Catchy, right?
Salsa Sour Cream Chicken for One
Serves one or two (if you don't eat a lot)
1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast - still frozen
1/4 cup of Salsa (I use fresh)
4 ounces of chopped green chilies
3 Tbsp Sour Cream
In a small slow cooker, place chicken breast, salsa and green chilies, put the lid on and cook for 5 - 6 hours on low. Next, shred the chicken with two forks. I did it right in the slow cooker. Mix it all up well and add the sour cream. Mix well and cook for one more hour on low. Serve over rice or with warmed corn tortillas.
What do you make for dinner when you are cooking for one? I need some ideas please!
