One of my favorite things to do is to get creative in the kitchen. I must admit that I haven’t had the chance to do that much lately. The other night, I was in heaven when I had a few minutes to come up with a new recipe. It just kind of unfolded as I was cooking. Check out what I came up with.
Onion Chicken Ingredients
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 packet of Onion Soup Mix
How to Cook the Chicken
Spray the chicken with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle an entire pack of onion soup mix across all of the breasts.
I love using an electric skillet. You can check out the best electric skillet if you don’t have one. I think it makes cooking chicken so fast. If you don’t have one, then you will need to cook the chicken on a skillet or bake it in the oven. Do it however you like cooking chicken the best.
Cheese Sauce Ingredients
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
5 slices of swiss cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
How to Cook the Cheese Sauce
Heat up the can of cream of mushroom soup and break up the sliced cheese into the pot. Add the garlic powder and cook until the cheese is completely melted. I had processed swiss cheese this particular day, so it melted pretty quickly.
Sauteed Cheesy Vegetables
4 small red, yellow, or orange bell peppers or a large one
5 fresh mushrooms
1/2-1 cup Dubliner cheese or fresh grated Parmesan cheese
How to Cook the Cheesy Vegetables
Cut onion, peppers, and mushrooms into strips. Saute’ in olive oil until the onions are translucent and the peppers are tender. Cover with the cheese you prefer most. I enjoy Dubliner cheese, but I think it is similar enough in flavor that you can use fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Don’t go with the already shredded Parmesan, or it will not melt.
You could also use mozzarella cheese for a less bold flavor.
Serving the Meal
Once your chicken is cooked, sauce is hot, and vegetables are done, it is time to serve the meal. Pour a few tablespoons of the cheese sauce over the chicken. Top with cheesy vegetables.
I served this with a hashbrown and corn. If you have ever had chicken casserole, this is a spin off of that idea. I think the chicken would be complimented by a variety of side items.
