Whew! I’m out of breath. Busy, busy, busy at work coupled with a quick road trip back to Kansas to celebrate Mom’s birthday hasn’t left much time for me to blog or to even read yours. Just so you don’t forget about me, here’s a quick meal that allowed me to cook during all of the hullabaloo.
In spite of our 12 inches of snow a couple of days ago, it is Springtime in the Rockies. I love this time of year in Colorado. Our big spring snows followed by 65-degree days equal quick melts revealing green grass that wasn’t there before the snow, irises poking up through the dirt and a Weber grill that has come out of hibernation.
So let’s grill some chicken.
This is a throw-together meal using ingredients I had on hand. No recipe required. I call it Easy Cheesy Chicken…
I simply pounded a couple of chicken breasts with my meat mallet to an equal thickness. Sprinkled with Mexican oregano, salt and pepper I threw them on my pre-heated grill…
Meanwhile, I sautéed some sliced green onions in a butter and olive oil mixture…
Whisk in some milk and shredded cheddar cheese…
Add a few shakes of handsome (and well dressed) Mr. Tapatio Hot Sauce.
Plate the chicken, drizzle on some of the ooey-gooey cheese, top with a beautiful handful of cilantro and voila! Easy and cheesy.
So, let’s talk about Spring. Spring’s is a great time for us. As you know, we’re avid birdwatchers and the miracles of migration are about to unfold all around us. Birdwatching is our favorite spring activity…what’s yours?
Did I mention there is another foot of snow in our forecast for this afternoon? Which will make for some grumpy little migrants.
