Dinner conversations on Thursdays usually go like this:
me: What do you feel like for dinner?
him: I don't know, what do you want for dinner?
(repeat 5 times at various 5 minute intervals, staring at the pantry)
And then we usually see the clock and run up to Chick Fil-A drive thru.
BUT last night was different, we actually both ended up in the kitchen prepping and cooking dinner. Yay, 1 point for us in breaking our rut!
Here's what we had for dinner:
Margarita Chicken Stirfry
adapted from Betty Crocker
|1/2||cup margarita mix ( I used a premade mix)|
|1/2||pound of skinless chicken breast|
|1||medium green bell pepper, cut into thin strips|
|1||medium red bell pepper, cut into thin strips|
|1||tablespoon finely chopped cilantro|
|1||cup uncooked instant brown rice|
- In large ziploc bag, add chicken and mix; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
- Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cook chicken for 5 minutes until no pink is shown.
- Add green and red bell peppers and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add some margarita mix and cilantro and cook for 4 minutes until mix is cooked down.
- Meanwhile, cook rice in water as directed on package. Serve stir-fry over rice.
