2 chicken breasts weighing approximately 5 oz each. Alternatively smaller pieces of chicken can be used weighing 10 oz total.
8 oz chopped mushrooms and green onions mixture
1 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tbs olive oil
Pound the chicken breasts till they are thinner – approximately 1/2 inch. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat.
When oil is hot, place chicken breasts in pan and allow to cook thoroughly on one side. This usually takes approximately 6 minutes or so. Turn the chicken when it has a nice brown color.
When chicken has been turned, spread the chopped mushrooms and green onions mixture over both chicken breasts. Cover pan so steam will tenderize the vegetables. Cook approximately 6 more minutes.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over vegetables. Allow the heat to melt the cheese. Remove from pan and let rest a few minutes before serving.
Use pepper jack cheese, green peppers, and tomatoes for a more southwest flavor.
12 oz pork loin
Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning
1 tbs olive oil
16 oz green pepper, mushrooms, green onions, squash mixture
Optional: Tortillas, Sour Cream, Cheese, Salsa, Avocado, Sauces, fresh vegetables
In a crock pot, cook pork loin sprinkled with seasoning. I recommend Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning – but feel free to use a favorite. I cook mine for about 6 hours on low – but monitor to ensure that your pork cooks completely.
In a pan, heat olive oil and cook green peppers, mushrooms, green onions, squash mixture. You can use whatever vegetables you prefer for this, but this is my typical combination. Season as desired. I don’t use salt – but that is a personal preference and it would probably be better if I did. Cook till vegetables are tender. Enjoy!
Serve with tortillas of choice if desired. Maybe also be good on a bed of lettuce. Garnish with sour cream, cheese, salsa, avocado, and/or sauce of choice. I don’t eat tomatoes, but those and any number of other vegetables (lettuce, cabbage, etc) might be perfect to add to this. I try to keep it a 8 oz per person raw or 4 oz per person cooked guideline.
Also – I use this combination with most proteins: shrimp, chicken, steak, etc. Cooking method may vary by protein.
