I absolutely LOVE any meal that I can make in the crock pot or in my solar oven. The “make it and forget it” style cooking is something that I use to keep up with a busy life with 7 kids. This type of cooking allows moms to be moms and spend more time with their kids and have a home-made from scratch meal on the table . This recipe is a favorite in our house. Kids love to pile on the toppings.
Cilantro Lime Chicken
- 6 large chicken breasts
- juice from 3 limes
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
- 4 Tomitillos, chopped (optional)
- 1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
- 2 cans of corn (undrained)
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
I absolutely LOVE my solar oven. I don’t use any fuel so I am saving money and it doesn’t heat up my house to cook. My parents, sister and I all have one and have been experimenting with different recipes. Chicken is the favorite in our house.
On tonight’s menu – boneless chicken breasts with sun-dried tomatoes and portabella mushrooms sprinkled with Montreal seasonings and Rosemary Red potatoes with a spritz of extra virgin olive oil.Imagine the solar oven as a “no-plug in” crockpot. It takes about the same amount of time to load it up as a crock-pot and even the 10 year old can put on the reflectors!! You don’t add any water! It cooks in it’s natural juices!
