Red Chile Chicken!
Susan is back with Red Chile Chicken!
This is such an easy meal that I can almost not even consider it a recipe. So, I decided to include a recipe by A Cowboy in the Kitchen cookbook author( and awesome cook), Grady Spears. I have made it a few times and it is absolutely my favorite, but a little tedious.
First, let me tell you the easy (and store bought sauce) version. Oh My! It was so tasty.
RED CHILE CHICKEN
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or 2 breasts)
4 rings green bell peppers (cut in half)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup red chile sauce (either bought or homemade…..see below)
salt and pepper
Place the chicken in a pan and pour the red chile sauce over it. My chile sauce was bought at the Santa Fe Cooking School. Top the chicken with garlic powder, bell pepper rings, salt and pepper. Cook for 40 minutes at 350. This time may vary if you are using chicken breasts, depending on how thick they are.
Here is a link to purchase the Red Chile Sauce.
RED CHILE PASTE
4 ancho chiles
4 New Mexico chiles
3 cups chicken stock
1/2 white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
Slit the peppers and remove the seeds and stem. Put the peppers into a pot and pour the chicken stock over them. Add the onions and garlic. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the peppers become softened and then put it all in a blender to puree.
RED CHILE SAUCE
2 cups Red Chile Paste (above)
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp honey
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
Put the first 4 ingredients in a blender and puree. Add salt to taste. Heat oil in a skillet and add the sauce. Cook for about 3 minutes. Use the sauce over enchiladas (or whatever) and store extra in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Hi, my name is Susan and I have only been blogging for a few months but I love it.Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love. I am quite skilled at shopping 🙂 and finding a bargain just makes my day.
